London — Global Screen, which has five market premieres at the European Film Market in Berlin, has added “Auf das Leben!” (To Life!) to its sales slate.

Pic is a “Harold and Maude”-like story of two people who are very different yet give each other a reason to live. It is helmed by Uwe Janson, who was BAFTA nommed for miniseries “The Sinking of the Laconia,” and penned by Thorsten Wettcke.

The film, which shot late last year, centers on aging cabaret singer Ruth, played by Hannelore Elsner (“No Place to Go”). She is sarcastic yet warm-hearted, and, despite a traumatic childhood, stands with both feet planted firmly in the midst of life.

Jonas, played by Max Riemelt (“The Red Cockatoo”), is in his late twenties, lives »
