Until December, films such as “Killers of the Flower Moon”, the Cannes winner “Anatomy of a Fall”, Ridley Scott’s film “Napoleon”, the drama “One For the Road”, a documentary about Vermeer and two films by Wim Wenders are attracting people to the cinema .
The 77-year-old director Wim Wenders is bringing two films to the cinema in autumn: the masterful documentary in 3D about the artist Anselm Kiefer (“Anselm”) and a quiet everyday study of a happy person in Tokyo, “Perfect Days”. Its leading actor Koji Yakusho received the Palme d’Or for best actor at the film festival. The latter is even Japan’s Oscar hope in the “best international film” category and opens shortly before Christmas. Both also screened at the recently concluded Hamburg Film Festival in the presence of Wenders – and received great applause in the sold-out screenings.
They share a vintage and have known each other for decades: Wim Wenders and Anselm Kiefer. Wenders’ 3D documentary allows Kiefer’s work to be experienced sensually. more
Fans of legal thrillers can particularly look forward to the French Cannes winning film by Justine Triet. Sandra Hülser shines in “Anatomy of a Case” from November 2nd as a German writer who lives in the mountains with her French husband and her visually impaired son. After a few scenes, the husband dies – and then the writer Sandra (that’s also the name of the character in the film) is suspected of murder and has to defend herself in court.
Frederick Lau previously played a construction manager with Nora Tschirner in Markus Goller’s film “One for the Road” who has a big problem with alcohol. One day he loses his driver’s license and then makes a bet not to drink alcohol again. Not an easy task in this society.
The actress received the Hamburg Film Festival’s award at the German premiere of the legal thriller “Anatomy of a Case”. more
“Killers of the Flower Moon – Epos von Martin Scorsese mit Lilly Gladstone
Martin Scorsese is collaborating again with Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro – for the literary adaptation “Killers of the Flower Moon”, an almost four-hour film with an unforgettable leading actress, 36-year-old Lily Gladstone. She embodies one of the rich women of the wealthy Osage people who enters into marriage with Ernest Burkhart, the nephew of an influential uncle (De Niro). There are a number of mysterious murders among the population and especially many Osage women. The drama celebrated its world premiere in May at the Cannes Film Festival.
