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. Während die Polizei dem Killer über die Jahre immer dichter auf den Fersen ist, geht Jack immer größere Risiken ein, denn er ist noch nicht zufrieden mit seinem Werk…

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.

Aaron wants to become a family with his girlfriend and her 8-year-old son, but high up in the Italian Dolomites, his attempts to win the boy’s acceptance turn into a dangerous power game.
Aaron invites his girlfriend Lea and her 8-year-old son Tristan on a trip to the mountains. What could be a starting point of a new life together, slowly turns into difficult territory, as the three fight for their positions within the new family. High up in the Three Peaks region in the Italian Dolomites, Aaron and Tristan are faced with their ambivalent love for and deepest fears of one another, while Lea stands in between the two, trying to navigate this triangle. In his attempt to win the boy’s acceptance, Aaron takes him up the mountain and confronts Tristan with his continuous aggression towards him. When fog sets in and Aaron loses the boy, their power games reach a dangerous level…

FINAL PORTRAIT

director/script STANLEY TUCCI

World Premiere Filmfestspiele Berlin 2017

theatrical release Germany August 3, 2017 by Prokino distribution

In 1964, while on a short trip to Paris, the American writer and art­-lover James Lord is asked by his friend, the world-renowned artist Alberto Giacometti, to sit for a portrait. The process, Giacometti assures Lord, will take only a few days. Flattered and intrigued, Lord agrees.
So begins not only the story of a touching and offbeat friendship, but, seen through the eyes of Lord, a uniquely revealing insight into the beauty, frustration, profundity and, at times, downright chaos of the artistic process.
FINAL PORTRAIT is a bewitching portrait of a genius, and of a friendship between two men who are utterly different, yet increasingly bonded through a single, ever-evolving act of creativity. It is a film which shines a light on the artistic process itself, by turns exhilarating, exasperating and bewildering, questioning whether the gift of a great artist is a blessing or a curse.

Agnese and Stefano are profoundly different. She is only seventeen, lives with her mother, a harsh and religious woman, and is about to take a vow of chastity before marriage. He is twenty-five, has a violent temper and a difficult past behind. He works as a security guard in a car park bordering a camp of Roma. Their unexpected meeting engenders a true sentiment, made of little stolen moments and mutual help. As their desire grows, Agnese is devastated by what she perceives as a betrayal of her ideals, and she takes an extreme decision in the hope of erasing her committed sin.

Premiere of “The Full Version” May 19, 2017 – Cannes Classics

Palme d’or-winning unfinished “YOL” is 35 years later still Turkey’s most important film and with its topics more contemporary than ever. Finally, it has been restored and completed for the occasion of Yilmaz Güney’s 80th birthday this year.
“YOL – The Full Version” honors what the great actor, author, director, producer and prisoner wasn’t free to complete during his lifetime. It presents on the screen the entire content of the script that Yilmaz Güney wrote in prison. Thanks to intense research, film material that was thought lost was found, digitised and edited according to Yilmaz Güney’s original editing plan. Image and sound have been accurately restored to their authentic condition. “YOL – The Full Version” recounts, as in Yilmaz Güney’s original script, six, rather than five stories about Turkish and Kurdish prisoners. Each of them attempts to get his life back on track during a week’s leave from prison. For 35 years, the fate of these men and their wives have moved audiences around the world. “YOL – The Full Version” is a piece of Turkish-Kurdish film history that is more contemporary than ever. The work is a timeless portrait of an archaic society whose concepts of honor and moral compass are the downfall of men and women alike.
