Howard's 'Missing' in Berlin fest competition

COLOGNE -- Ron Howard's dark western The Missing is one of the early selections for competition at the 2004 Berlin International Film Festival, scheduled to kick off in February next year, organizers said Monday. The film, which stars Cate Blanchett and Tommy Lee Jones, was one of five competition entries announced by Berlin Festival director Dieter Kosslick. Also in the running for the 2004 Golden Bear will be Nightsongs, from German director Romuald Karmakar; Your Next Life, from Spain's Manuel Gutierrez; Croatian entry Witnesses, directed by Vinko Bresan; and In Your Hands from Danish helmer Annette K. Olesen. "[The entries] range from tragic love story to political psychodrama, from historical thriller to intimate family saga," Kosslick said, adding that the combination of Oscar-winning director Howard and art house favorites such as Gutierrez and Karmakar were a guarantee for "a versatile program, both in theme and style."
