Period dramas, comedies get German funding

Cologne, Germany -- German's federal film board (Ffa) hasn't lost its taste for big period projects, putting up coin for Roland Suso Richter's early medieval epic "The Physician" and Peter Sehr's 19th century drama "Ludwig II" in its latest round of funding.

"The Physician," based on the Noah Gordon's bestseller of the same name, picked up $844,000 from the Ffa. "Ludwig II," a biopic of the so-called "fairy-tale king" of Bavaria, received a check for $700,000.

The bulk of the Ffa's cash went to mainstream productions, including the comedies "Heute bin ich Blond" (Today, I'm Blond) from Marc Rothemund, "Jesus Liebt Mich" (Jesus Loves Me) from Florian David Fitz and "What A Man," the romcom directorial debut of acting star Matthias Schweighofer.

On the other end of the scale, production-wise, is Andreas Dresen's new low-budget production, "Halt Auf Freier Strecke," which got $140,000 in subsidy cash from the Ffa. »
