Germany’s most important film prize, LOLA, has announced the nominees for this year’s award ceremony on May, 9th 2014 – and „Love Steaks“ is on the list, among commercial productions like „Fack Ju Göthe“ or „Finsterworld“. We are very proud to be part of this top list of this season’s German movie productions. The LOLA is Germany’s most prestigious and includes prize money of nearly 3 million Euros.With „Love Steaks“ we tell a love story in which two ways of life collide: “do good” versus “live hard”. Clemens and Lara are having a tough time living out those principles within their traditionally hierarchical workplace. Yet that’s how they meet, love and challenge one another. Eventually “doing good” will do harm. And “living it hard” will leave you weak. A fight for love evolves. To fit in the Fogma method, the two actors worked with the hotel staff even when not shooting. By not using written dialogue we could actually participate in real procedures. The actors followed a skeleton script, but constantly had to react to the real world around them. For six weeks the hotel employees very strongly related to our story, shaped it and pushed the scenes to a new intensity.

“Love Steaks” starts in cinemas over Germany

Director Jakob Lass tells his story in rapidly changing images that drag the viewer in the characters’ life in an almost hallucinatory way, and he doesn’t shy away from humor, too. „Love Steaks“ is a nice example for the fact that many movies are created at the editing suite, as the editing work is the most inspiring time for many directors. If the material that was created in the making of the film is so rich and colorful that it inspires the editor to new highs, movies are created, of such density and suggestive force that the audience forgets the cinema surrounding. „Love Steaks“ is “not only a movie but a gift to the audience which is simply brimming over with energy, enthusiasm, colors and love, and shows once again what cinema is able to achieve”, the Saarbrücken jury explains its decision.„Love Steaks“ has won all four advancement awards at the Filmfest Munich for the first time in history, namely “Best Movie”, “Best Production”, “Best Theatrical Performance” and “Best Script”, it was awarded the Max-Ophüls-Preis at the Saarbrücken Film Festival in 2014 and it caused a sensation at several film festivals around the world (Slamdance, Karlovy Vary, Montréal et al.).

For the label Darling Berlin and as the distributor, daredo is more than happy for the team winning all this prizes! Finally, „Love Steaks“ is listed in the pre-selection for the German Filmpreis 2014, the six final nominees being announced tomorrow, Friday the 28th of March.

Some comments from the press about „Love Steaks“:“Love Steaks“ is characterized by a nice schizophrenia of spontaneity and calculation, that testifies much more of a maverick approach to making movies than many other German newcomer hits have, that are also dealing with exploring the lifeworlds of Twenty- and Thirtysomethings. Just because the movie doesn’t follow the Hipster idea of stylizing the Zeitgeist but rather is dragging its style out of the Zeitgeist.” (Süddeutsche Zeitung)“The hidden but relentless triumphal march of “Love Steaks“, the wittiest German comedy of the season, reminds of what happened to „Oh Boy“ two years ago, and to „Kohlhass“ last summer: finally, we have again popular movies that were not made from the willingness to compromise but from uncompromisingness.” (Franfurter Rundschau)“Love Steaks“ opens the windows wide and admits reality to come in. And not this German pseudo-realism in movies, somewhere in between commercials and TV series, that is often so frustrating, but a virtually overwhelming here and now.” (Spiegel)“Cinema as such cannot be more unpredictable and exciting!” (Cinema Magazine)“Ingeniously improvised – this movie hits you right between the eyes!” (TV Spielfilm Magazine)“„Love Steaks“ impressively shows that the Nouvelle Berlin Vague is definitely something to reckon with in the future.” (Zitty Magazine, Berlin)“He and his team call it Fogma – the self-given rules that forbid artificial elements such as studio shoots but give room to spontaneity in order to let the ‘flow’ emerge. Which works perfectly here. To see how Lara and Clemens attract and repel each other is comical, touching and moving at the same time, it comprises an explosive force rarely to be found in movies.” (AZ, Munich)

Each year, the Saas-Fee Film Festival shows movies from Switzerland and its neighbouring countries. The feature film competition of the Saas-Fee Filmfest is interested in free, personal, innovative cinematic approaches and strong, moving stories which challenge viewing and thought habits. „Love Steaks“ has fulfilled these demands entirely and wins the Grand Prize, which was received by main actress Lana Cooper in Saas-Fee. From the Jury’s statement: „Love Steaks“ is a nice example for the fact that many movies are created at the editing suite, as the editing work is the most inspiring time for many directors. Of course, at the editing suite can only be composed what script, direction and actors, what camera and art direction have been delivering. But if the material that was created in the making of the film is so rich and colourful that it inspires the editor to new highs, movies are created, of such density and suggestive force that the audience forgets the cinema surrounding. For this very own way and the highs in editing that it made possible, the Prize of the International Jury goes to „Love Steaks“.Matching to this, there is already an Austrian distributor for the movie: Polyfilm AT brings „Love Steaks“ to the Alpine Republic’s cinemas at the 23th of May, whereas the film starts in cinemas in Germany already at 27th of March.
