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. »

Jim Mickle’s Sundance hit is a dark, twisted gem, a film that plays more like a Gothic thriller than a modern horror flick. It’s a wonderful reimagining of the Mexican 2010 film that recasts the Parker clan as a family on the edge of collapse after the matriarch dies in a storm. Struggling to keep their family together, they face the inevitable decay of their disgusting traditions. Mickle takes a giant leap forward with this genre hit, finding a visual sense that has propelled him to the front of the list of young horror directors. »
