Munich to honor Joseph Vilsmaier

3 December 2009 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Cologne, Germany -- Joseph Vilsmaier, the German director credited by many with reinvigorating the Heimatfilm genre, will receive a lifetime achievement award at the Bavarian Film Prize gala Jan. 15.

Vilsmaier was one of the most successful German filmmakers of the 1990s -- his period dramas "Autumn Milk," "Brother of Sleep" and "Comedian Harmonists" were local boxoffice hits.

The 70-year-old filmmaker returned to form with his last feature, the comedy "Brandner Kaspar" which featured local comedy star Michael Herbig as death incarnate. Vilsmaier's latest, the real-life mountain climbing drama "Nanga Parbat," bows Jan. 14 in Germany. It follows the story of brothers Reinhold and Gunther Messner who, in 1970, set off to scale the Nanga Parbat, the infamous "Killer Mountain" of the Himalayas. »

It's a ray of sunshine for the Berlin-based group, which pushed through a radical restructuring plan last year to avoid collapse. The shake-up saw Senator hand its U.S. operation Senator Entertainment Inc. back to founder Marco Weber; spin off production, acquisition and marketing duties to new joint venture deutschfilm and sign co-acquisition/distribution deals with Universum Films and France's Wild Bunch to provide much-needed cash flow.

"We're on the right track, but we're not out of the woods yet," said Senator CEO Helge Sasse, noting the company was still drawing down on its assets in order to keep the lights on.

Senator has had a huge hit in Germany with Stephen Daldry's "The Reader," which earned more than $20 million at the local boxoffice, »
