    BERLINdaily | Czech Communist Drama and Hybrid Western Vie for Attention at Panorama

    Appearing as part of Berlinale's Panorama Special lineup, Czech director Jan Hrebejk's "Kawasaki's Rose" (which indieWIRE contributor Shane Danielsen praised as a "find" in the festival) received its international premiere following its successful release last December in the Czech Republic. The film centers on a Czech family coming to terms with their communist past. Hreberjk is noted for being an extremely prolific director; for the past decade, he's cranked out a film a year. Though his film "Divided We Fall" was nominated for the Best Foreign Film Oscar back in 2000, "Kawasaki's Rose" marks his first film to premiere at one of the big th...

    BERLINdaily | Baumbach Strikes Back with "Greenberg"

    "Noah Baumbach seems intent on laying his own distinctive claim to a territory already overcrowded with developers, that of adults swamped in disabling neuroses, bad behavior and self-absorption. You can add Jewish angst as well in the case of 'Greenberg,'" writes The Hollywood Reporter's Kirk Honeycutt in his review of "The Squid and the Whale" director's latest film, which recently premiered in competition at the Berlinale. "While winning no points for originality, Baumbach and his co-conspirator in the script, Jennifer Jason Leigh--whom he directed in his previous examination of psychological trauma, 'Margot at the Wedding'--have created a...

    Berlinale Critics Notebook: Searching For Meaning In a "Two Star" Festival

    Five days into the 60th Berlinale, and the mood might have most charitably been described as neutral. There were some good films, though not a lot. But then, there weren't many outright stinkers, either. The market hummed along without seeming to achieve much, either in terms of major sales or -- to...

    China's Zhang Yimou Salutes Coens in Latest, "A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop"

    "The Coen brothers film ["Blood Simple"] is one I liked very much. I saw it in the 1980s in Cannes, but I didn't understand it because they didn't have subtitles in Chinese back then, so I only saw the images," said maverick Chinese director Zhang Yimou in Berlin Sunday afternoon following the premi...

    Berlinale Critics Notebook: The undeniable ‘find’ of the festival, so far?

    It was 106F the day I left Sydney, at the end of a four-month visit with family and friends. By the time I got home to Berlin, on the evening of January 26, it was -4F. The cold was dry and tense and lacerating; you felt hollowed out by it. But far worse were the pavements: thickened with weeks of c...
