Sleeping Sickness had its world premiere in the Competition of the 2011 Berlinale and Köhler won the Silver Bear for Best Director. His new feature film, In My Room, brings him to Cannes for the first time. It centers on Armin, in his forties, a freelancer with lots of time and little money. He’s not really happy, but can’t picture living a different life. One day everyone around him has disappeared and he isn’t sure what happened. As in his 2002 debut Bungalow,

The Golden Donkey Berlinale 2011

  • MUBI
The crows knew it from Day One: Berlin 2011 would be a—slightly—happier experience. Normally, when night began to fall, the crows descended upon the frost-bleak trees around Potsdamer Platz and cawcawed for hours, filling the silence of bad cinema, crushed hopes and now-for-real lost illusions with their woe-cum sorrowful sounding songs. Hundreds, maybe thousands of them. The trees were black for birds. Every evening, starting around 5pm or 6pm, reliably—you could set your watch to them (if you take things easy, that is...). Yet, this time around, the crows were nowhere to be seen. Maybe it's true what a friend of TO1..., comrade Möller suggested: It looks as if the crows were trying to make Berlin their permanent home, become true city slickers, which necessitates certain changes of behavior; rings scientifically solid. Still, we couldn't shake off the feeling that they somehow sensed a thing or two,

Berlinale Winners

The general mood of journalists at the 61st Berlin Film Festival was disappointment: reports generally characterised the selection as dismal. The Independent’s Jonathan Romney explained that the festival tended to ‘test your tolerance for the worthy’, just like every other year. The term ‘worthy’ makes the films sound depressing and dull, but as Romney also observed, the Berlinale had ‘no lemons’: many films looked at real-life problems in a new way and so, for my part, I typically left the cinema feeling stimulated and uplifted rather than sad or irritated.

It seems that the festival juries, too, found plenty to praise: of the nearly 400 films in the festival, 45 won awards. The ceremony for the 61st Berlin Film Festival took place on Saturday, Feburary 19th, and while the full list of awards is too lengthy to summarise in detail, the following should provide you with a nice list of

Iranian Cinema Triumphant In Berlin

By A.J. Goldmann - February 20, 2011

Asghar Farhadi’s “Nader and Simin” was the big winner at this year’s Berlin Film Festival, which announced its awards Saturday evening, a day prior to the end of the fest.

Farhadi won the Silver Bear for best director two years ago for his film “About Elly.” “Nader and Simin” was widely seen as a shoo-in for the Golden Bear, both for its outstanding quality in a year of insipid competition fare and the spotlight thrown on Iranian cinema by incarcerated director Jafar Panahi, for whom the festival kept an open jury seat for the duration of the festival.

The international jury of the 61st Berlin Film Festival, presided over by actress Isabella Rossellini, jointly awarded the Silver Bears for acting to the ensemble cast of “Nader and Simin.” Among the six actors and actresses who shared the two statues was the director’s teenage daughter,
