Held for Questioning (Der Aufenthalt)

22 August 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Sylvester Groth shines in this East German movie about a luckless private in a Polish prison, thrown in with a group of defeated Nazi war criminals. For a country that usually paints the ideological divide in black and white red, Frank Beyer’s film of Hermann Kant’s semi-autobiographical story is surprisingly even-handed. An excellent addition to films from behind the old Iron Curtain.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Sequel Is Being Developed

16 April 2017 3:10 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in 2015, Warner Bros. released their theatrical remake of the hit 1960s TV series The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which starred Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer as Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, respectively. The film wasn't exactly a box office sensation, taking in just $44.5 million domestically and $109.8 million worldwide from a $75 million budget, although the critics did seem to enoy it, with the film scoring a decent 67% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. While it wasn't a huge hit financially, it seems that a sequel is being worked on, according to Armie Hammer.

While promoting his new action-thriller Free Fire, which hits theaters next weekend, Armie Hammer spoke to /Film, when he was asked about the possibility of a sequel for The Man From U.N.C.L.E.. As it turns out, the actor recently spoke with Lionel Wigram, who produced The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and co-wrote the screenplay with director Guy Ritchie, »

Berlinale 2017: In Times of Fading Light Review

17 February 2017 4:23 PM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Stefan Pape

 

We’ve seen so many tales told from the perspective of those caught up in the devastation of the Second World War, but rarely do we then catch up with them later on in life, when you would presume that their fight has now been fought. These are the characters that make up Matti Geschonneck’s In Times of Fading Light, though the central, hardline communist is evidently never without another battle to engage in, for this tale is set in the very final days of East Germany, despite how ardently he believes the wall will never fall.

Set merely days before David Hasselhoff was dancing on the concrete to celebrate the tearing down of the wall that separated the residents of Berlin – it’s the 90th birthday of communist Wilhelm Powileit (Bruno Ganz) who still fervently believes in his idealistic, socialist values, albeit a fantasy that »

In Times Of Fading Light review: Director Matti Geschonneck and screenwriter Wolfgang Kohlhaase tackle Eugen Ruge’s source novel.

In Times Of Fading Light review

Bruno Ganz leads the cast of this period comedy/ drama set in the autumn of 1989 in East Berlin, just weeks before the wall was pulled down. Wilhelm Powileit (Ganz), a staunch communist for the past 75 years, is celebrating his 90th birthday, and is having a get together for family, friends and peers at his residence. The party will see him betrothed with medals, flowers and gifts and will host many of the Young Pioneers, who all turn up to pay their respects on this milestone birthday. However, cracks are starting appear, both in Germany generally, and within Wilhem’s own troubled family. We learn that stepson was arrested in Moscow as an alleged counter-revolutionary, »
