Darling Berlin’s latest movie “Ugly & Blind” by director and screenwriter Tom Lass is starting in cinemas all over Germany on September, 21st! The highly acclaimed movie has won several prizes, e.g. at the Filmfest Munich where “Ugly & Blind” has won the the prestigious FIPRESCI prize, which is awarded by the International Federation of Film Critics, or at the Filmfest Oldenburg, where it has been awarded with the German Independence Award for ‘Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble’. Press critics are enthusiastic, too: “…a wonderful love story…” (Der Tagesspiegel); “…a brisk and dreamy Coming-of-age drama…” (Süddeutsche Zeitung).

With Axel Ranisch, Karin Hanczewski, Jakob Lass, Lana Cooper, Martina Schöne-Radunski and Amelie Kiefer in supporting roles, we meet many actors from other Darling Berlin movies in “Blind & Ugly”. Here is a short synopsis of the movie: Ferdi thinks he’s ugly – but likes the fact Jona is interested in him. Maybe because she’s blind. What Ferdi doesn’t suspect: She’s just pretending to be blind to be able to live cheaply in subsidized housing. How long can she maintain her charade? Can love, which is supposed to make you blind, even work out that way?

Darling Berlin is proud to announce that the film „Mann im Spagat (Pace, Cowboy, Pace)“ is starting in selected cinemas all over Germany this Thursday!

The movie, directed by Timo Jacobs, is kind of a sequel to Jacobs’ debut “Klappe Cowboy!“. ‚Free swinging for world inhalation’ – For Cowboy as a libertine, and leader of the Headquarters for World Inhalation, that’s not such a big problem. He gives everything he’s got to clean up the environment, with the vision of saving the planet with his movement of Free Swingers. Cowboy applies for a grant from the Central Agency who sends a representative named Fey of Sweden to approve his proposal. She demands results, so he decides to stage a charity bicycle rally, featuring a roster of two-wheeled Berlin misfits. Realizing his vision of creating a better world could be so easy, were it not for his adversaries, who kill his mother’s bird and set the Devil of Hermannplatz on him in an effort to sabotage his plans – not the best timing, considering he also has to rescue his stubborn mother from a shady retirement home – and of course, her dying wish is to see Elvis perform. Impossible!

Mann im Spagat (Pace, Cowboy, Pace)“ features many well-known German actors, such as Meret Becker, Claude-Oliver Rudolph or Rolf Zacher, and pop icons from the likes of Olli Schulz and Friedrich Liechtenstein. See it at your local cinema now!
