Exclusive: Filmmaker Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck has returned to CAA. Henckel von Donnersmarck blazed on the scene after the German filmmaker wrote and directed 2006′s The Lives Of Others, which won him the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film and generated $77 million at the worldwide box office on a $3 million budget.

Austrian director Julian Pölsler had quite a task on his hands in undertaking an adaptation of Austrian author Marlen Haushofer.s powerful 1963 novel The Wall, which is kind of like a psychological science fiction coming-of-age survival drama. The film was released overseas last year to middling reviews, and is making its way to a U.S. release today, May 31, 2013. Hopefully nothing gets in its way. Like, I dunno, a wall. Like its title states, this is a film about an invisible wall that appears in the middle of the Austrian countryside. Acclaimed actress Martina Gedeck, best known for her work in the Oscar-winning The Lives of Others, plays a woman who goes off on a vacation and soon realizes that she is completely alone out there, save for her dog Lynx. My guess is the above clip comes soon after she.s come into contact with the wall, and »
They say that dogs are man (or woman's) best friend, and indeed, their loyalty is just one of the traits that makes those four-legged friends so endearing. Frankly, if we were cut off from civilization, we might actually prefer a dog to be on our side than anybody on two legs. And that basic, intriguing premise is at the heart of "The Wall" from director Julian Pölsler, and led by "The Lives Of Others" star Martina Gedeck. Based on Marlen Haushofer’s classic novel, the actress leads the eerie movie, set in the Austrian mountains, where her unnamed character suddenly finds herself cut off from all human contact by an invisible, unyielding wall that surrounds the countryside where she is vacationing. Accompanied by her dog Lynx, she must now come to grips with her bizarre circumstances, in a film that that tackles spirituality, humanity, solitude, and more. And in this exclusive clip from the film, »

“Dogtown and Z-Boys” meets “The Lives of Others” in “This Ain’t California,” a spirited not-quite-documentary portrait of the skateboarding subculture that flourished in East Germany in the early 1980s. Ostensibly forged from a treasure trove of Super 8 homemovies and archival footage, some of which is quite literally too good to be true, writer-director Marten Persiel’s debut feature is a rather ingenious fabrication, with reams of uncanny period re-creations (right down to the stonewashed cutoffs and knee socks) and at least one fully fictional character (though possibly more) masquerading as fact. Currently receiving a single-screen New York theatrical run after a long life on the fest circuit, where it picked up several documentary prizes, this multilayered curio should enjoy a long shelf life with the surf/skate crowd and spark much debate among nonfiction purists.
There was an underground skate scene in the Gdr, but beyond that, pretty »

What do you get the man who has everything? His own murder mystery to solve, of course! For Castle's birthday (and the show's 100th episode) Kate Beckett went big and gifted Castle the most epic present he's ever received.
Below, our Castle Round Table team of Jim Garner, Chandel Charles, and Christine Orlando are joined by Teresa from The 12th Fan Forum as they admit if they were taken in by the April Fool's murder or not, while sound off on which of Charlie's Angels the boys resemble.
1. What was your favorite scene in "The Lives of Others?"
Jim: I loved watching Rick put it all together in his head after the big reveal and Kate looking concerned for just a brief moment. Anyone who has "gone big" for a significant other has had that moment of "should I have done this" and it was great to see Kate proven right. »

Well, that was absolutely delightful, wasn't it? ABC's Castle reached a milestone in its history when their 100th episode, titled "The Lives of Others" aired last night. As most of you know, I had a chance to preview this episode last Friday and I am so thrilled that I can finally discuss it with you guys. I [...]
Castle: 5.19 "The Lives Of Others" Review »
- Luciana Mangas
Every show that makes it to 100 episodes likes to spice things up a little, but when Andrew Marlowe and his wife, Terri Edda Miller, sat down to write one for Castle, they decided to make their title character sit down too. Literally.
And thus the episode – ‘The Lives of Others’ – begins with viewers plunked down two weeks into Castle’s (Nathan Fillion) recovery with a broken kneecap and two weeks of recovery to go. Now, if you haven’t seen the episode, back slowly away from this review and watch before reading any further.
Because the genius of this episode is that it’s all one big con. (Okay, maybe three.)
The first con is between the writers and the audience. Throw in a pair of binoculars, a Rear Window reference and a strategically-placed set of blinds and you’ve got a recipe for the perfect ...

It may have been a far-fetched concept to have Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) witness a murder, "Rear Window"-style, but you have to give "Castle" credit for committing to its farce. At no point -- before the show's 100th episode's final minutes anyway -- did the trickster-style truth peek through.
Or did it? Did you see the ending coming in "The Lives of Others"?
Were there any clues, other than the basic insanity of a murder occurring directly across from Castle's window right when he was bored and looking? There actually were very few, but what might have told us that the ending was coming?
The twist was hinted at in a previous episode.
Back in February, we may have gotten our first hint to the outcome of "The Lives of Others."
At one point in the investigation that made up the show's Valentine's Day episode, Castle got frustrated by a particularly tricky case. »
What a celebration!
"The Lives of Others” marked two events: Castle’s birthday and, even more importantly, the 100th episode of our favorite Monday night series. Let’s waste no more time and let's talk Castle, shall we?
Rear Window Castle is stuck in his apartment after messing up his knee skiing with Beckett. Strapped with boredom, he resorts to using binoculars and peeking in on his neighbors. After swearing that he witnessed a murder in the apartment across the alley, Castle goes on to drive everyone crazy. Alexis, Beckett, Ryan and Espo are all dragged into Castle’s antics.
Little did we know that Beckett had planned the most elaborate and best birthday ever for her man. Seriously, that was pretty much amazing. With the help of Martha and her acting students, Alexis and the binoculars, Ryan and Espo checking in on the case, even Gates working her way in. »

"Castle" has reached a major TV milestone, the 100th episode. "The Lives of Others" takes an injured Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) and turns the episode into a "Rear Window" homage. While Beckett (Stana Katic), Ryan (Seamus Dever) and Esposito (Jon Huertas) follow leads on one of their normal cases -- the death of an IRS agent -- Castle sits at home, languishing in boredom and pain medication.
Has Castle actually witnessed a murder? Watch the video and decide for yourself.
1. Despite the impressive and bandaged cast, Castle has broken only a very small bone. He whines a lot. He demands attention and food delivery. This is very irritating to Beckett.
2. "You've actually gone 'Rear Window.' »
In 100 episodes of "Castle," novelist-turned-nypd ride-along Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) has had an education in real crimes and plenty of near-death experiences ... but that doesn't mean he's matured at all.
We've got an exclusive sneak peek at "Castle's" 100the episode, titled "The Lives of Others," which finds Castle trying to entertain himself while he's stuck at home nursing a broken leg. He's a boy with a lot of toys, but it's a pair of binoculars that'll bring his detective work closer to home this time.
Watch the clip above and tell us: What's been your favorite episode of "Castle" so far?
More scoop on the 100th episode of "Castle"
- The Huffington Post
There's nothing like a 100th episode to bring out the nostalgia and celebration in a television show. This is very clear for the 100th episode of "Castle," "The Lives of Others." In honor of the TV milestone, ABC has released four vintage-looking "Castle" posters that celebrate major episodes throughout the show's five-season run.
Of the four episodes celebrated by these posters, Season 2's "Wrapped Up in Death" (originally aired on April 5, 2010) is by far the earliest in "Castle" history.
This would be the episode in which a museum researcher dies under mysterious circumstances -- and it turns out that a curse might be to blame. Whoever looks at a mummy's face is doomed to die. Castle (Nathan Fillion) of course does just that.
Next up is "The Blue Butterfly," the Season 4 episode (aired Feb. 6, 2012) that transported the audience back to a film noir-style past. The story of an old murder »
Fresh off an episode that took us into Ryan's past, Castle Season 5 celebrates a milestone Monday night:
Too bad Rick won't be able to stand up and celebrate. Confined to a wheelchair and unable to write due to pain medication, the writer will be chomping at the investigative bit, anxious to be included in the latest case.
Is he losing it? Is he in danger of going all Rear Window on Beckett and company? No, Castle claims in the following hilarious clip. He just wants to play Charlie to his friends' Angels...

The 100th episode of "Castle," appropriately titled "The Lives of Others," puts Rick Castle right into the middle of a "Rear Window"-style mystery. While recovering from an injury, the bored writer takes to spying. But what he sees may be deadly.
In this video, Castle (Nathan Fillion) gets a good look at the neighbors across the street. What first appears to be nothing but a passionate tryst soon gets more complicated. Castle, watching through his binoculars, sees a young woman about to head to bed with a man in a fedora.
Things are not, however, what they seem. Just before anything really good can happen, another man walks into the apartment. It seems that the young lady has been doing a little bit of messing around with Fedora Guy. Initially, this is kept secret from her man -- until he finds the fedora on the floor.
Later on, because »
The 100th episode of "Castle" may be airing on Monday, April 1 (10 p.m. Et on ABC), but it's no April Fools joke -- in fact, the consequences of the "Rear Window"-esque case could hit surprisingly close to home for our heroes.
At the cake-cutting ceremony for the milestone episode, The Huffington Post caught up with Nathan Fillion, creator Andrew Marlowe and other members of the show's cast to preview what to expect from the Hitchcock-inspired hour, which Marlowe described as "a champagne glass of an episode," designed with the series' most loyal fans in mind -- especially those who love Castle (Fillion) and Beckett (Stana Katic). Read on for what we learned.
Andrew Marlowe (Creator):
On coming up with the 100th episode: "One of things with the 100th episode is, we wanted to put the lens squarely on the Castle/Beckett dynamic, we wanted to do something that was fun, »

"The Wild Rover" displayed a side of Kevin Ryan we never knew existed before: The bad boy.
Below, our Castle Round Table Team of Chandel Charles, Jim Garner and Christine Orlando are joined by Beth from The 12th Fan Forum to discuss the sexiness of Fenton O'Connel versus Kevin Ryan and who had the most romantic moment of the episode. Pull up a virtual chair and join us!
What was your favorite scene?
Chandel: Castle's confessing the story behind "Jordan" to Kate. I love little moments like those between those two.
Beth: The confrontation at the docks. Ryan had such true blind faith in his team that he knew that Esposito, Beckett, and Castle would be there. It really showed the depth of their trusting each other with their lives. With the addition of Castle's line about not bringing his vest it was a perfect scene.
Jim: When »
