The HeyUGuys Interview: Volker Bruch on Generation War

In the year that we commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War I, the BBC have looked beyond the devastation of this earlier conflict to World War II, and the war on the Eastern Front with original German drama series Generation War.

In the swirling chaos of the World War, Generation War crafts a tragic and intimate story of the lives of five friends who are impacted by the events of the German invasion of Russia.

For part one of our Generation War special feature, HeyUGuys had the privilege to speak with Volker Bruch who plays Wilhelm Winter, one of the tragic five lead characters. Volker looked back not only to the past of turbulent war, but to the roots of his career. He also shared with us amongst other things his thoughts on Generation War as a ghost story, albeit in a different sense of the word, his frequent

'Erased' review: Aaron Eckhart in fine form in 'Bourne Identity' imitation

  • Pop2it
Just once, it'd be nice if the couple fleeing from a trigger-happy hit man through, say, a crowded hospital, would yell out -- "Run for your lives!" And if the hospital's in Belgium, say, it'd be nice for them to yell it in French.

"Erased" has such a scene, where Aaron Eckhart, as a security contractor whose company, bank records and recent history have been "erased," is fleeing with his daughter (Liana Liberato). And you can't help but feel for the innocent doctors, nurses and patients on gurneys who catch a bullet during the mayhem. Don't they deserve a warning?

"Erased" is a run-of-the-mill "Bourne" imitation in which covert operatives are desperate to tidy up a scheme in which American expat Ben Logan may be the only witness. It's an exposition-heavy thriller with that generic Euro-thriller blue-grey color palette and duller-than-grey villains, all chasing the good guy and his daughter through scenic Brussels and Antwerp,

Shores of Hope | Tiff 2012 Review

Back in the Gdr: Hebbeln’s Debut Feature Revisits Political Turmoil of East Germany

Writer/director Toke Constantin Hebbeln follows up his 2006 short film Nevermore with this Stasi inspired period piece, Shores of Hope (aka No Man’s Land). A tale of the East vs. West struggle disguised in a drama concerning the separation of two best friends as they try to attain their goals as dock workers in 1982 Rostock, Hebbeln manages to conjure up some minor dramatic tension with this witch hunt scenario, but ultimately, ends up failing us with a by-the-numbers narrative arc.

Conny (Alexander Fehling) and Andreas (August Diehl) are two wannabe dock workers in Rostock, having a dream to get out of the rigid political climate of East Germany and work out on the sea. But soon after being hired, they realize that getting off the docks and on a ship out to sea requires more

Mark Duplass, Jennifer Aniston & Ben Kingsley Head To 'Convention,' Patrick Wilson & Christina Hendricks Lead Darren Aronofsky-Produced 'Zipper'

Mark Duplass has had busy couple of years, directing and writing three films with his brother, and starring in a number of projects including the raunchy FX comedy, “The League,” and in the upcoming sci-fi tinged indie dramedy “Safety Not Guaranteed” with Aubrey Plaza. He’s following up that role with one in another indie film with a sci-fi element, “Convention,” and he’s going to be acting opposite some pretty big names.

Duplass will be playing an inventor who unveils his latest creation at a national box convention: the five-sided box. The mysterious new design initially seems perfect, until Duplass’ inventor learns that each time its special fold is created, he rips a hole in the space-time continuum. It’s up to him and his sister to put things back together and save the role. Jennifer Aniston is circling the sister role and Ben Kingsley is officially signed up

Ben Kingsley, Stellan Skarsgard, and Tom Payne Go Medieval With ‘The Physician’

With The Dictator in theaters, Iron Man 3 about to shoot, and a role in Convention being announced just a few days back, we’re being inundated with Ben Kingsley at the moment; savor it while it lasts. Adding to that influx would be the news that he, Stellan Skarsgård, Tom Payne, and Olivier Martinez are planning to lead The Physician, an adaptation of Noah Gordon‘s medieval novel that Philipp Stölzl (Young Goethe in Love) will direct. [THR]

Adapted for film by Jan Berger, The Physician follows Rob Cole (Payne), a (you know what he does) trying to uncover the secrets behind “illness and healing in a medieval world dominated by religion and superstition.” Trying to help him in that quest would be Ibn Sina (Kingsley), a super-doctor, and Barber (Skarsgård), his mentor & guide; Martinez is playing Shah Ala ad-Daula.

DVD Review: ‘Young Goethe in Love’ Enchants With Bittersweet Romance

Chicago – “Young Goethe in Love” is not the sort of title guaranteed to send American audiences to the theater in droves. For one thing, the title sounds too much like “Shakespeare in Love,” though its original German title, “Goethe!” sounds like a giddy musical along the lines of “Oliver!” Perhaps Goethe’s name should’ve been cut from the title altogether and relegated to a snappy tagline like, “Love Can Cometh and Goethe in an Instant.”

Thankfully, a poorly titled and under-marketed cinematic gem can find the audience it deserves with the help of good critical buzz, and here’s hoping that will happen to Philipp Stölzl’s irresistible 2010 period romance upon its DVD realease. The future master of Weimer Classicism was a mere 23-year-old when he first penned 1774’s “The Sorrows of Young Werner,” which heavily influenced the subsequent Romantic literary movement, as well as inspire a wave of

Young Goethe In Love – The Review

Young Goethe In Love was originally reviewed as part of the 2011 Stella Artois 20th Annual St. Louis International Film Festival

In the tradition of films such as Nowhere Boy and Shakespeare In Love comes another film depicting the per-recognition, early days of a now world famous artist- Young Goethe In Love. The title truly gets the main thrust of the story. We meet poet Johann Goethe in the later part of the eighteenth century as the twenty-something law student botches his Ph.D. and fails to graduate. But he’s got a back-up plan! He puts pen to paper, dashes off a play, and ships it away. The rejection of this work prompts his stern father to send him off to a small hamlet where he will toil as a law clerk in the local court.

New to Theatres This Weekend: Tower Heist, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas

The holiday movie season is kicking in to gear this week with one of the most unlikely Christmas movies to date: A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas. While the stoner comedy will be looking to improve on the box office numbers from the first two Harold and Kumar films (thanks in part to higher 3D ticket prices), it's going to have a tough time going up against the defending champ Puss in Boots plus Brett Ratner's Tower Heist starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. There isn't much else in terms of new releases this week other than those two flicks, however, with crime thriller The Son of No One starring Channing Tatum and Al Pacino being the only noteworthy entry in limited release. What will you be watching this weekend and what are your box office predictions? Tower Heist A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas The Son of No One

Weekend Preview: Ratner's Tower Heist Set to Topple Indie Docs & Dramas
Brett Ratner's timely Tower Heist taps into anti-Wall Street sentiment and is just what you'd expect: competent, breezy, escapist entertainment. The well-cast Madoff-inspired comedy--which stars Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, Tea Leoni, Alan Alda and Eddie Murphy in a supporting comeback bid--is expected to take in $29 million this weekend, while R-rated sequel A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas 3D could score $15.5 million. In the mood for something smaller or more serious?

Film: Movie Review: Young Goethe In Love

Though the title Young Goethe In Love is more descriptive than the film’s original German title, Goethe!, it suggests less about what viewers can expect from this story about the love life of a young Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. The film seems designed to ask a question no one was asking: “Could the events that inspired Goethe’s breakthrough work, The Sorrows Of Young Werther—a book that helped kick-start the Romantic movement, inspired a generation of young men to emulate its tortured hero, and possibly caused an uptick in European suicides—serve as fodder for a frolicsome costume ...

Wednesday Poster Round-Up Featuring the new poster for Sherlock Holmes

1. Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows: Grade C-

A painfully typical poster using the destruction of a familiar landmark to catch our eyes. Haven’t we learned anything from Roland Emmerich?

2. The Mighty Macs: Grade C

The most inspiring mediocre poster I’ve seen in years.

3. The Human Centipede 2: Grade B

It is sexy and exploitative, and you can’t help but squirm.

4. J. Edgar: Grade B

I think this film looks like another dull biopic, but that isn’t the fault of this poster, which is wonderfully garish.

5. Shame: Grade A

Simple and evocative. You can feel every groove and spring in that bed.

6. To Gala: Grade B

There is nothing particularly remarkable about this poster, but I love the framing, and the color.

7. Young Goethe in Love: Grade B

This poster certainly has the fairytale feel to it, complete with what looks to be a decaying castle or villa.
