German Hitmakers Are Back in Saddle for the Cannes Market

German Hitmakers Are Back in Saddle for the Cannes Market
Historical romance, literary adaptations, arthouse drama, star-studded comedies, children’s pics, animated fare and a high-profile documentary are among the many German films and co-productions on offer at this year’s Cannes Film Market.

Unspooling as part of the festival are Wim Wenders’ “Pope Francis: A Man of His Word,” repped by Focus Features and bowing in Special Screenings; “In My Room,” Ulrich Koehler’s story of a man who suddenly realizes everyone around him has disappeared, which world premieres in Un Certain Regard; and, in Intl. Critics’ Week sidebar, Anja Kofmel’s Swiss co-production “Chris the Swiss,” a partially animated documentary from Urban Distribution that investigates the mysterious death of a young Swiss journalist during the Yugoslav wars.

On the market side, one historical niche that is proving particularly successful is that of the turn-of-the-century artist.

Picture Tree Intl. is following its 2016 hit “Egon Schiele — Death and the Maiden,

‘Bye Bye Germany’ by Director Sam Garbarski

Review by Peter BelsitoThe film is a deeply felt yet unsentimental, often wry look at a group of Jewish friends — all Nazi-era survivors — who, in 1946 Frankfurt, unite to sell high-end linens to raise the funds to emigrate to America. Not your typical Holocaust-inspired drama.

These clever door-to-door peddlers, led by David Bermann (a superb Moritz Bleibtreu), whose family’s once-thriving linen store was seized by the Nazis and now stands in ruins provide an interesting context in which the filmmakers build an interesting deeply felt story.

David is suspected of collaboration with the Nazis and is questioned by tough, cold and very attractive American Army investigator, Sara (Antje Traue), who suggeststhat David, whose parents and brothers perished at Auschwitz, may have been working with the Nazis.

These interrogation sessions give way to flashbacks of how the jokey David, while imprisoned in a concentration camp, was plucked by its loathsome

‘Justice League’ Actress Defends Skimpy Amazon Costumes: ‘I Have Never Felt More Empowered’

‘Justice League’ Actress Defends Skimpy Amazon Costumes: ‘I Have Never Felt More Empowered’
Actress and stunt person Samantha Jo has taken to Twitter to sound off on a simmering controversy involving the apparently skimpy and sexualized costumes worn by the Amazon warriors in Zack Snyder’s upcoming “Justice League.” Earlier this week, fans of “Wonder Woman” were dismayed to discover that behind the scenes pictures of the Amazons and early looks at them in action in Synder’s film showed off some seemingly questionable costume changes, ones that appear to value sexuality over practicality and didn’t reflect the vision first laid out in Patty Jenkins’ film from earlier this year.

But while Jo welcomes the discussion, she’s also eager to set the record straight. In a long and thoughtful response on her social media, Jo writes: “I think that the sexualization happens largely in the intent of the creators. In this case, I’ve heard Zack Snyder and [costume designer] Michael Wilkinson’s name being thrown about.

Sliff 2017 Review – Bye Bye Germany

Bye Bye Germany screens Wednesday, November 8th at 9:15pm and Friday November 10th as part of this year’s St. Louis International Film Festival. Both screenings are at The Plaza Frontenac.

In 1946 Frankfurt, David Bermann (Moritz Bleibtreu of “Run Lola Run” and “Munich”) and his Jewish friends have escaped the Nazi regime and are now dreaming of leaving for America. But how will they get the money in these tough postwar times? The smooth-talking businessman focuses on what the Germans now need most: fine bed linens nicely wrapped in amusing stories! The six talented entertainers go from home to home, praising housewives until the flattered ladies have no choice but to buy their irresistible items. Business flourishes and a bright new future can be seen on the horizon. But questions about Bermann’s past catch up with him: Could he have collaborated with the Nazis? The smart, uncompromising U.

Wonderful Role: Interview with Wonder Woman's Samantha JoWonderful Role: Interview with Wonder Woman's Samantha JoIngrid Randoja - Cineplex Magazine5/29/2017 9:36:00 Am

Samantha Jo spent nearly a decade working as a stuntwoman and taking risks. However, the biggest risk the Barrie, Ontario, native has taken is giving up stunt work to become an actor.

“It was incredibly scary but I am so happy I did it,” says Jo on the line from her home in Los Angeles. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with these amazing people, like Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, and it really inspired me, and I knew that I would kick myself if I didn’t do what my heart was telling me.”

The 26-year-old worked with Cavill and Adams on Man of Steel when she had both a small acting role as one of General Zod’s soldiers, Car-Vex, and was the stunt double for Antje Traue,

Criminal review

facebook

twitter

google+

Kevin Costner leads the impressive cast of the unimpressive Criminal...

When you think of how best to describe Criminal, the new body swap action thriller starring Kevin Costner, it wouldn't be by that name. As a title, Criminal is so hopelessly vague that it could apply to anything from Goodfellas to Les Misérables. The premise of this one isn't anywhere near that bland, but the film is not a whole lot better than it sounds either.

Seemingly flowing from the same vein of Euro-trash action films that Liam Neeson opened up with Taken, the film is driven by what CIA agent Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds) knows, or rather what he knew, before a deal in London with a hacker known as the Dutchman (Michael Pitt) went awry and he was tortured to death by Spanish anarchist Xavier Heimdahl, (Jordi Mollà.)

His handler, Quaker Wells (Gary Oldman), needs

Despite The Falling Snow review

facebook

google+

Rebecca Ferguson stars in Despite The Falling Snow, and she's the best thing about the movie...

The main draw of Despite The Falling Snow is a dual performance by Rebecca Ferguson, who shot this in between her Emmy-nominated work on The White Queen and her memorable breakthrough role in last year's Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation. Adapted by writer-director Sharim Sharif from her own novel, this romantic thriller casts Ferguson as two women separated by time but connected by blood and a sequence of events that occurred in Moscow at the height of the Cold War.

In 1992, an American artist called Lauren (Ferguson) is curious as to why her weary uncle Sacha (Charles Dance) is so cagey about their family's history and the circumstances of his defection from Russia thirty years prior. In particular, she's beguiled by her aunt Katya (also Ferguson), of whom she is the spitting image.

Movie Review – Criminal (2016)

Criminal, 2016.

Directed by Ariel Vromen.

Starring Kevin Costner, Gary Oldman, Gal Gadot, Tommy Lee Jones, Michael Pitt, Amaury Nolasco, Antje Traue, Alice Eve, Jordi Molla, Scott Adkins, Natalie Burn, Robert Davi, and Ryan Reynolds.

Synopsis:

In a last-ditch effort to stop a diabolical plot, a dead CIA operative’s memories, secrets, and skills are implanted into a death-row inmate in hopes the he will complete the operative’s mission.

At least Criminal makes it clear what kind of illogical, loopy brain-dead experience will unfold, as it begins with protagonist (more like sociopath recruited for a government experiment to do some good) Jericho (Kevin Costner in what is easily the most ugly, gruff, and violent role of his long-running acting career) narrating to the audience his creed, which is literally “You hurt me, I hurt you worse”. That’s the kind of screenwriting (one of its writers actually penned Michael Bay

Criminal – Review

The incoherent mess known as Criminal is rescued from disaster by a game cast. Seasoned pros join hot younger stars to elevate a ridiculous script, keeping what could have (and should have) been a train wreck mostly on track and lending Criminal far more credibility than it deserves.

Criminal opens with a gritty chase through the streets of London that ends with CIA agent Bill Pope (Ryan Reynolds) murdered by having a cattle prod shoved down his throat by the sinister “Spanish Anarchist” Heimdahl (Jordi Molla) and his vicious moll Elsa (Antje Traue). But Pope’s now-dead mind is full of critical, earth-saving info involving his interactions with “The Dutchman” (Michael Pitt), a nut who has hacked his way into the controls of U.S. nuclear missile silos and will start Wwiii unless his demands, mostly involving a passport and a big bag of cash, are met.

Will 'The Jungle Book' Be Another Big Box Office Win for Disney?

Will 'The Jungle Book' Be Another Big Box Office Win for Disney?
Batman v Superman's two-week run atop the box office came to an end last weekend as Universal's new comedy The Boss just barely beat it with $23.5 million. Unfortunately for The Boss, its reign looks to be quite short, with three newcomers hitting theaters this Friday, including Disney's highly-anticipated The Jungle Book, Warner Bros.' Barbershop: The Next Cut and Lionsgate's Criminal. According to the predictions from ToddMThatcher.com, The Jungle Book is looking to run away with a huge opening weekend win.

The Jungle Book is eyeing a debut of $74.6 million, as Barbershop: The Next Cut debuts in second with $23.1 million. Both The Boss ($13.5 million) and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($11.1 million) will likely drop to third and fourth place, respectively, with Criminal rounding out the top 5 with $9.3 million. The Jungle Book has a huge edge over its competitors in terms of theater count and critical acclaim.
