The Road to Istanbul | 2016 Berlin Intl. Film Festival Review

19 February 2016 3:15 PM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Free Radicals: Bouchareb Explores a Mother’s Nightmare in Topical Treatment

French director Rachid Bouchareb is no stranger to exploring the actions radicalized children have on their bewildered parents, as evidenced in his eloquent 2008 feature, London River. Whereas his earlier film dealt with the aftermath of disastrous actions, Bouchareb returns to the topical issue of Western recruitment into contemporary terrorist cells, this time centered on drama as it unfolds in The Road to Istanbul. We’ve become accustomed to these types of narratives from the perspectives of perplexed loved ones, desperately searching for explanations as to why friends or family were coerced or brainwashed into such despicable acts of violence, both domestically and abroad. In many ways, this is another statistical composite of such grim realities, but features a performance perfectly administered by actress Astrid Whettnall, who succinctly captures the desperation of a woman caught up in an unexpected nightmare. »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Road to Istanbul’

15 February 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After two meandering dramas (“Just Like a Woman” and “Two Men in Town”) featuring Muslim characters on New Mexico soil, the French-born Algerian director Rachid Bouchareb abruptly veers into topical territory with “Road to Istanbul,” a compellingly one-sided portrait of a Belgian woman desperately trying to find the daughter who ran away from home to join the Islamic State in Syria. Set at the juncture where Third World problems unexpectedly become First World concerns, the film follows the mother (strongly played by Astrid Whettnall) with a single-minded intensity that, for better and for worse, treats the child’s motivations as a largely offscreen mystery. While some of the final scenes are played with a bluntness that strains credulity, overall this swift-moving tale has a spareness and simplicity that feel welcome after Bouchareb’s more strained recent efforts; the sad timeliness of its premise should translate into solid festival play and modest arthouse potential. »

Steve Coogan’s ‘Shepherds and Butchers’ to Play at Berlin Film Festival

21 January 2016 9:38 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

London — The Berlin Film Festival’s Panorama section has completed its lineup, which includes the world premiere of Oliver Schmitz’s “Shepherds and Butchers,” starring Steve Coogan and Andrea Riseborough.

Coogan, who starred in, co-wrote and produced the Oscar-nominated “Philomena,” plays hot-shot lawyer John Weber in “Shepherds and Butchers.” Weber faces his biggest test when he agrees to defend a prison guard who has killed seven men. What ensues is a compelling charge against the death penalty itself.

The film is produced by Anant Singh and Brian Cox for Distant Horizon and Videovision Entertainment; WestEnd Films is handling international sales.

Two other Panorama films look at the issue of the death penalty: the Brazilian documentary “Curumim” and the previously announced “I, Olga Hepnarova,” which opens the main section of Panorama.

Fiction titles added to Panorama:

Antes o tempo não acabava (Time Was Endless) – Brazil/Germany

By Sérgio Andrade, Fábio Baldo

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2016: #100. Rachid Bouchareb’s La route des lacs

5 January 2016 6:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

La route des lacs (Road to Istanbul)

Director: Rachid Bouchareb

Writers: Rachid Bouchareb, Zoe Galeron, Yasmina Khadra, Olivier Lorelle

Franco-Algerian director Rachid Bouchareb continues a prolific shooting schedule with his latest project, La route des lacs (Road to Istanbul), which tackles an extremely topical scenario regarding terrorist recruits and Isis when a mother discovers her child has joined the dangerous organization. Recently, Bouchareb has been navigating the Us Pacific Southwest with English language items Just Like a Woman (2012) and his 2014 remake of Two Men in Town. For this latest, he pairs with regular co-writers Lorelle, Galeron, and Yasmina Khadra (who penned the exceptional 2012 film The Attack for Ziad Doueiri, which Bouchareb produced), and the film will be headlined by Belgian actress Astrid Whettnall and rising star Pauline Burlet (who appeared in La Vie En Rose as well as Asghar Farhadi’s The Past in 2013). Thus far, this sounds similar to Bouchareb’s 2008 film, »
