Cherry Blossoms and Demons (Kirschblüten & Dämonen)

German director Doris Dörrie follows up her celebrated 2008 film Cherry Blossoms with a sequel of sorts, Cherry Blossoms and Demons (Kirschblüten & Dämonen), reuniting the cast members of her earlier German-Tokyo melodrama, including the great Hannelore Elsner, Birgit Minichmayr, Elmar Wepper, Golo Euler, Aya Irizuki, Floriane Daniel, Felix Eitner, Sophie Ragall, and the celebrated Japanese actress Kiki Kirin (most recently of Koreeda’s Shoplifters). The project (which has also been listed as the title Demons for Tea) is produced by Anita Schneider and Viola Jäger of Olga Films in co-production with Bayerischer Rundfunk and Arte.…

The Conversation: Producer Janine Jackowski

Producer Janine Jackowski has quietly fostered a new era of art-house German cinema off lauded output from directors Maren Ade and Ulrich Kohler (who happen to be married) and has extended into significant collaborations with Romanian auteurs and Portugal’s Miguel Gomes. But Jackowski’s most significant contribution has been as producer to Ade, having worked on her 2003 debut The Forest for the Trees, her excellent 2009 sophomore film Everyone Else, and then the 2016 international break-out Toni Erdmann which competed at Cannes, snagged an Oscar nod, and has been tapped for an American remake (rumored to…

Maren Ade has teamed up again with costume designer Gitti Fuchs and editor Heike Parplies of her The Forest For The Trees (Der Wald Vor Lauter Bäumen) and Everyone Else (Alle Anderen) to bring us Germany's Oscar submission Toni Erdmann, starring Sandra Hüller and Peter Simonischek.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Andy Kaufman's Tony Clifton, meerkats (not from Ang Lee's Life Of Pi), Frauke Finsterwalder's Finsterworld, vintage Yves Saint Laurent, and corporate madness came up in my conversation with Maren Ade and Sandra Hüller.

With a supporting cast including Viktorija Malektorovych, Hadewych Minis, Lucy Russell, Michael Wittenborn, Ingrid Bisu, Thomas Loibl, and Trystan Pütter, Ade gives her characters a chance to rediscover themselves in song and skin-deep encounters of the third or fourth or fifth kind.

Fipresci: the unsung champions of the cinema scene

Those compiling their best of the year lists would do well to consult the roll-call of gong-winners handed out by an august band of international critics

Any perspicacious film festival-goer or festival-watcher will have noticed that one of the prizes awarded at most festivals, in addition to the Golden Palms, Golden Lions or Golden Leopards etc, is the Fipresci (Federation International de la Presse Cinematographic) – aka the international film critics' award. In principle, this should be the most prestigious and sought-after prize of all, because the juries are made up of professional film critics (usually five, each from a different country) who are paid to tell the public what is good or bad and why.

Unfortunately, the Fipresci prize does not carry with it any money but, in theory, it does help the film gain a distributor. However, on one occasion, I remember that a director, who had just won the Fipresci prize,

From Sundance to Rome, From Mo'Nique to Mirren

Since when did precursor season begin in October? Every year it seems to push backwards, earlier into the year, despite Oscar pushing forward, delaying itself until March this year. We've already heard from the Gotham Awards and Bifa and this past week more festival prizes came all the way from Rome and Chicago. None of this is unusual I suppose... I guess I'm just not quite ready for it for 2009. Ready for it emotionally, not physically. That's too much to go over right here (especially considering what's coming in about one months time. Nbr etcetera...)

Since The Film Experience's famously favorite category is Best Actress, it's worth noting the year's wins in that regard thus far. I'm sure I'm missing foreign wins but I'm on tight deadlines. (Help me fill it out in the comments - previous error fixed. I type too fast. 75 wpm, bitches)

The Auteurs Daily: Nyff. Everyone Else

  • MUBI
Updated through 10/10.

"Following her 2003 debut The Forest for the Trees, 32-year-old German writer-director Maren Ade's trenchant, funny, and sensitive Everyone Else (Alle Anderen) cuts deeper than an Oscar season's worth of emotional turmoil," writes Aaron Hillis, introducing his interview with the director for the Voice. "It's not so much about a deteriorating relationship between young architect Chris (Lars Eidinger) and rock publicist Gitti (Birgit Minichmayr, who snagged the Best Actress Award at this year's Berlinale) as it is an exploration of their vibrant yet volatile mismatched union over the span of a Sardinian vacation."

Berlinale Awards

Berlinale 2009 winners cover a broad range of films whose central aim consists in exploring ways to further the interpretation and understanding of important topics of our time. Therefore the jury has decided to award prizes to those efforts which achieve a balance between the political statement and the poetic form.

Golden Bear for the Best Film La teta asustada (The Milk Of Sorrow) by Claudia Llosa

Silver Bear - The Jury Grand Prix Alle Anderen (Everyone else) by Maren Ade

ex aequo Award Gigante by Adrián Biniez

Silver Bear - Best Director Asghar Farhadi for Darbareye Elly (About Elly)

Silver Bear - Best Actress Birgit Minichmayr in Alle Anderen (Everyone else) by Maren Ade

Silver Bear - Best Actor Sotigui Kouyate in London River by Rachid Bouchareb

Silver Bear - Outstanding Artistic Contribution "We filmmakers, sometimes we forget the power of sound to create atmospheres and more often we use it in a predictable way. There’s a tremendous originality and risk in the experimental and original way this film builds up its somber narration around its powerful sound design." Silver Bear for an outstanding artistic contribution to Gábor Erdély and Tamás Székely for the Sound-Design of Katalin Varga by Peter Strickland

Silver Bear - Best Script "The role of a film-script when telling human stories starts with the decision of whose eyes to look through in the first place. For a script that takes us into a particular experience – one all too often ignored and obscured from us - towards the encouragement of producers, distributors and audiences across the world to keep looking for a wider horizon and to honour the possibility that cinema holds for us to tell the stories that no other medium may be free enough to touch," Oren Moverman and Alessandro Camon for The Messenger by Oren Moverman

Alfred Bauer Prize "The jury has unanimously this year decided to give the Alfred Bauer Prize to two films and two directors. One of these directors is an old master with 60 years of experience in film-making. But he is still young and courageous in mind when developing new ways of film-making. He does not even hesitate to involve himself in his movie.

The other director is a young man, here in Berlin with his first feature film, but imbued with the same passion to use cinema to do what cinema can do best: to tell important stories about our time and the human condition."

The jury awards the Alfred Bauer Prize to

Milk Of Sorrow Wins Golden Bear

  • WENN
Peruvian film The Milk Of Sorrow has been honoured with the Berlin Film Festival's top prize.

The movie, selected by an international board under this year's president Tilda Swinton, beat off competition from the Woody Harrelson-starring film The Messenger, and My One And Only, with Renee Zellweger, to take home the Golden Bear award for Best Picture on Saturday.

On receiving the award, The Milk Of Sorrow filmmaker Claudia Llosa dedicated the win to her home country.

She said, "This is beautiful... this is such an honour. This is for Peru. This is for our country."

The runner-up Silver Bear was shared by Uruguay's Gigante and German drama Everyone Else.

The Messenger, in which Harrelson plays a military officer who must inform families when they lose soldiers in combat, received the Silver Bear for Best Script for writers Oren Moverman and Alessandro Camon.

Tilda Loves Peru. And Everyone Else, Too

Tilda Swinton and her esteemed jury have picked their winners for the Berlinale Festival. The Golden Bear (the top prize) went to The Milk of Sorrow. The movie is being called a "triumphant ode to life" but it sounds gruesome. The title refers to a disease carried in the breast milk of women who were raped.

The photo to the left shows Tilda kissing the hand of the lead actress. That Tilda, she's such a gentleman. Love her! (That's an order from The Film Experience. Not that you needed the shove). If you follow Oscar's foreign film race each year you may recall that the director Claudia Llosa's previous film madeinusa was Peru's submission in 2006. Llosa now seems likely to receive that particular patriotic honor again next fall when Oscar's foreign film official submission list is released.

Moodysson, Kaige, Potter, Angelopoulos and Rebecca Miller set for Berlin Film Fest

[/link]’s Pink Panther II), an Oscar hopeful (Stephen Daldry’s The Reader) and some prestige titles from master filmmakers who might have lost their touch and offerings from less-seasoned directors are among the world preems that have been announced in the Berlin Film Festival’s Competition and Out of Competition section). Some long-awaited films from the veterans in Sally Potter, Theo Angelopoulos and Chen Kaige (see pic) are being paired with filmmakers such as Moodysson, Bouchareb and Rebecca Miller. Along with Miller and Moodysson’s films, I’m looking forward to seeing Oren Moverman’s directorial debut – which will be soon a couple of weeks earlier at Sundance.

First titles announced for Berlinale film fest

While we eagerly await more info (and trailers) for the films playing at Sundance (and hopefully news on where Cory McAbee's Stingray Sam is going), the first competition and out of competition titles have been announced for one of the other biggest fests on the planet, the 59th Berlin International Film Festival, and all I have to say is Wtf? Pink Panther II is playing out of competition?! Who's running this menagerie? They redid the entire program this year, so I hope they're still going to have the genre goods.
