Cast: Ulrich Mühe, Susanne Lothar, Felix Eitner, Frank Giering

Running Time: 123 minutes

Certificate: 12

Synopsis: A man arrives at a distant snowbound village to take up his new post as land surveyor. However in an absurd turn of events, not only is there no post for him, but the mysterious “Castle” is putting obstacles in his way, and K.’s life soon descends into a spiral of futility and helplessness.

Austrian director Michael Haneke’s The Castle (1997) isn’t for everyone. A made-for-tv movie based on Frank Kafka’s novel of the same name, it’s a piece of film-making from his early career, before he went on to international success with The Piano Teacher (2001), Time Of The Wolf (2003) and his most recent work Amour (2012). Now The Castle is finally being released in the UK.

We follow the protagonist known as K. »

Susanne Lothar dies suddenly aged 51

27 July 2012 7:44 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

German actor Susanne Lothar, best known for her work with director Michael Haneke, has died suddenly at the age of 51. Her family lawyer, Christian Schetz, confirmed that Lothar died on Wednesday. He added he would not be providing further details "for understandable reasons".

Born in Hamburg, to actor parents, Lothar cut her teeth in theatre before winning the German federal film prize for her screen debut in the 1983 drama Strange Fruit. She went on to star in the likes of Snowland, the political saga If Not Us, Who? and Stephen Daldry's Oscar-winning Holocaust drama The Reader.

Lothar, however, was most acclaimed for her quartet of films with Haneke, starting with The Castle in 1997. She played an imperilled bourgeois in the controversial Funny Games, an anguished mother in The Piano Teacher »

The top 50 foreign language films of the last decade

8 February 2012 6:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From animation to epic sci-fi to intimate dramas, here’s our pick of the 50 finest foreign language films of the past ten years…

It is quite clear that mainstream cinema no longer applies just to Hollywood blockbusters, or the odd British comedy. With the advent of mass home cinema in the last decade, and the increasing availability of pretty much anything and everything on DVD, Blu-ray, or streaming services like Netflix, world cinema has finally crossed the divide of being the preserve of the connoisseur, or the type of thing you’d stumble on late at night on TV.

In the last ten years, world cinema has made a massive impact on film-of-the-year lists, and many people’s personal favourites. Starting from 2002 and ending here in 2012, it’s safe to say that you’ll have seen many of the films below, and enjoyed them simply as great pieces of filmmaking, »
