Karl Baumgartner, obituary

19 March 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

International co-production and co-production markets around the globe will not be the same now following the news that the internationally respected German producer-distributor Karl  Baumgartner has died at the age of 65.

Known affectionately by friends and colleagues alike as ¨Baumi¨,  Baumgartner hailed from the South Tyrol, but was ¨ at home¨ in different countries and cultures, working with film-makers on projects located in some of the seemingly most inaccessible or logistically nightmarish  parts of the planet.

Hearing him recount the making of Bakhtiar Khudojnazarov’s Luna Papa at one of the countless co-production panels with his tales of the shooting being stopped by floods washing the set away, the outbreak of civil war and being evacuated by the Red Cross floods, one often wondered whether he purposely looked for such challenges.

Not to speak of the challenge of putting such delicate and time-consuming co-production structures together involving tried-and-tested production partners, public funders and broadcasters from across Europe and beyond »

Blu-ray Review: Feeling of Timelessness in ‘La Vie de Bohéme’

11 February 2014 1:48 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – What is amazing about the texture of this 1992 film version of the 1848 Henri Murger novel, “La Vie de Bohéme,” is that it looks like it could have been filmed during the French New Wave period of the late 1950s/early ‘60s. The Criterion Collection offers a stunning new Blu-ray transfer of a now classic adaptation.

Rating: 4.5/5.0

Directed by Aki Kaurismäki (“Le Havre”), a Finnish filmmaker, but co-produced by France, Italy and Sweden as well, this version of “La Vie de Bohéme” – there have been over a dozen versions, including the opera “La Bohéme” and the Broadway musical “Rent” – has an international cast and beguiling black & white cinematography by Timo Salminen. It plays like a verité documentary, as all of the performers have such a naturalistic virtue in their portrayals. They are desperate but free, and even a woman searching for love cannot resist their slovenly grace. Each ne’er »

First Promo Poster & Synopsis for Clouds of Sils Maria with Juliette Binoche & Kristen Stewart

10 February 2014 3:15 AM, PST | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Originally titled simply Sils Maria, Olivier Assayas’ upcoming drama recently underwent a slight title change to Clouds of Sils Maria, and now the first promo poster has been released, along with the first official synopsis.

Juliette Binoche, Kristen Stewart, and Chloë Grace Moretz make for an impressive leading trio, and the synopsis below teases some interesting dynamics between them.

At the peak of her international career, Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche) is asked to perform in a revival of the play that made her famous twenty years ago. But back then she played the role of Sigrid, an alluring young girl who disarms and eventually drives her boss Helena to suicide. Now she is being asked to step into the other role, that of the older Helena.

She departs with her assistant (Kristen Stewart) to rehearse in Sils Maria; a remote region of the Alps. A young Hollywood starlet with a »

Criterion Collection: La Vie De Boheme | Blu-ray Review

28 January 2014 5:00 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

As an entry into Finnish auteur Aki Kaurismaki’s filmography, his 1992 film La Vie De Boheme, which is loosely based on Henri Murger’s Scenes De La Vie De Boheme, (the basis for the famed opera La Boheme), is an excellent starting point. His first French feature, Kaurismaki’s absurdist, deadpan tone is in high gear with this lively look at a trio of disheveled outcasts eking it out as artists on society’s fray.

Three struggling creative types (composer/writer/painter) live together for support and necessity as they try to peddle their own original output. Marcel Marx (Andre Wilms) is an aspiring playwright and magazine editor, and has had considerable difficulty getting someone to publish his latest work, “The Avenger: A Play in 21 Acts.” Rodolfo (Matti Pellonpaa) is an Albanian painter illegally living in Paris, though lucky enough to have found at least one patron to purchase his works. »
