A TALE OF THREE SISTERS tells the story of three sisters from a poor village in Central Anatolia. The girls were adopted by affluent families as foster children (in Turkish ‘besleme’) in the hope of improving their lives. However, all three are forced to return to the village due to unforseen circumstances.
When Reyhan (Cemre Ebüzziya) returns home pregnant, her father Şevket (Müfit Kayacan) hastily marries her off to the poor village shepherd Veysel (Kayhan Açikgöz), who is being treated with contempt not only in the village, but also in Şevket’s (Müfit Kayacan) home. Havva (Helin Kandemir) comes back after the sad but inevitable death of her foster-brother, who has been fighting a terminal illness. A few days after Havva’s (Helin Kandemir) return, Nurhan (Ece Yüksel) is brought back to the village by her foster-father Necati (KUBİLAY TUNÇER). For the first time in years, Reyhan (Cemre Ebüzziya), Havva (Helin Kandemir) and Nurhan (Ece Yüksel) are reunited. Şevket’s (Müfit Kayacan) greatest challenge is to persuade Necati (KUBİLAY TUNÇER) to take Havva (Helin Kandemir) as ‘besleme’ into his home following Nurhan’s (Ece Yüksel) departure. With the help of the village mayor, he puts pressure on Necati (KUBİLAY TUNÇER). Veysel (Kayhan Açikgöz), who also has an agenda to leave as he despises being a shepherd, asks Necati (KUBİLAY TUNÇER) for a job that will take him out of the village.
As the three sisters negotiate their new yet familiar surroundings and relationships, Şevket (Müfit Kayacan), Necati (KUBİLAY TUNÇER) and Veysel (Kayhan Açikgöz) gather around a dinner table, all of which results in a series of unexpected clashes.

Short synopsis: In seinem neusten Film erzählt Lars von Trier die Geschichte eines hochintelligenten Serienkillers namens Jack (Matt Dillon) im Zeitraum von zwölf Jahren aus dessen Perspektive. Jack betrachtet jeden einzelnen seiner Morde als Kunstwerk und tauscht sich mit seinen Gedanken regelmäßig mit dem mysteriösen Verge (Bruno Ganz) aus.

International Premiere February 17, 2018 – Berlinale Special Gala

German Release May 24, 2018 by Concorde Filmverleih

In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed and the past floods back, transporting him to other times and places. Was he once the most famous man in London? The artist crucified by a society that once worshipped him? The lover imprisoned and freed, yet still running towards ruin in the final chapter of his life? Under the microscope of death he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross who tried and failed to save him from himself. From Dieppe to Naples to Paris freedom is elusive and Oscar is a penniless vagabond, always moving on, shunned by his old acquaintance, but revered by a strange group of outlaws and urchins to whom he tells the old stories – his incomparable wit still sharp. THE HAPPY PRINCE is a portrait of the dark side of a genius who lived and died for love in the last days of the nineteenth century.

Mirko and Manolo are best friends and live in the suburbs of Rome. They both live in poor conditions with their single parents, are still in school and struggle with occasional odd jobs to make ends meet. Together they share dreams of women, of sex and money, of a better life to come.
After killing a man in a hit-and-run one night, they get involved with the local mafia and their lives change dramatically. Soon they find themselves doing the dirty work for their new bosses and have fresh blood on their hands. But lured by the dreams of easy money and illusions of a thriving career, they fail to realize the consequences of their choice.
Life in the underworld becomes exceedingly tough and Mirko and Manolo soon disconnect from family and former friends as they engage on a downward spiral, a pathway towards darkness.
