16 October 2014 8:36 AM, PDT | Clothes on Film | See recent Clothes on Film news »

Director Brian De Palma has made movies heavily influenced by Alfred Hitchcock before, but Passion (2012) is the first one whose characters look like they stepped out of one of Hitchcock’s classic films.

Karen Muller-Serreau’s bold and colourful costumes communicate the characters’ hidden desires and make watching Passion a sensory experience. This melodrama centres on two ad executives, Isabelle (Noomi Rapace) and her boss Christine (Rachel McAdams), who have a deadline to come up with an ad campaign for a new smartphone.

The two other principal characters are Isabelle’s assistant Dani (Karoline Herfurth) and Christine’s boyfriend Dirk (Paul Anderson) who get tangled in the twists and turns of Christine and Isabelle’s relationship. Dani is an angel-faced redhead who is in unrequited love with her boss Isabelle, »

Picture Tree Takes ‘Fack Ju Goehte’ to Berlin Market

London — International sales and production outfit Picture Tree Intl. has secured the global distribution rights to hit screwball comedy “Fack Ju Goehte” (Suck Me Shakespeer).

“Fack Ju Goehte” was Germany’s most popular movie last year, with more than six million tickets sold, and a box office gross of more than $60 million.

Pti will present this blockbuster, directed by Bora Dagtekin (“Turkish for Beginners”) and starring Elyas M’Barek (“The Wave,” “The Physician”) and Karoline Herfurth (“The Reader,” “We Are the Night”), to buyers at the European Film Market in Berlin, which runs (Feb. 6-14).

The fast-paced film tells the story of Zeki Mueller (M’Barek), an ex-con and substitute teacher who uses unorthodox yet effective methods to bring an unruly class back on track. Zeki’s highly entertaining encounters with his prim and proper fellow teacher Lisi Schnabelstedt (Herfurth) recently earned the film a spot on the pre-selection list for the German Film Awards. »
