Stella Davis (Dorian Brown) is a widow who finances her life by trying to prepare five prisoners for life in freedom on her ranch. The unusual troop takes care of a herd of emaciated wild horses that have wandered on Stella’s land. But again and again Stella is confronted with hurdles she doesn’t understand herself: she fights against prejudices, greed and the coldhearted bureaucracy. And when the radical billionaire and self-proclaimed animal rights activist Meredith Parish (Sharon Stone) becomes aware of her and the wild horses and exerts all her influence that the wild horses will be reintroduced, Stella threatens to lose everything…

In this uncut US cinema version, Hollywood’s ‘Femme Fatale’ Sharon Stone shines in the role of a radical animal rights activist. Her part as “Meredith Parish” is based on the life of the real animal rights activist and billionaire wife Madeleine Pickens, who has been working for the welfare of wild horses in the USA for years and has only recently prevented 30,000 horses from being euthanized in order to free pastureland for cattle breeding

In 1993 the film was one of the ten most successful German cinema films. It reached its enormous audience mainly in school screenings, whereupon the dtv publishing house suggested director Brunner to make a book out of the material. This was written by Andreas Steinhöfel, who later became famous with his “Rico and Oskar” books.

Twelve-year-old Lena and her mother are assigned a new apartment by the social welfare office. From now on they will live in the run-down “Hotel Paradies”. The mother finds it appalling that they should live under the same roof as homeless, asylum-seeking, poor and illegalized people. But despite the adverse circumstances, which the hotel owes to the greedy, racist operator Mr. Schmuck, Lena immediately feels at home. She finds a great best friend, Ajoke, and explores her new home. When her mother’s expensive cutlery and jewelry is stolen, she is sure that Lena’s new friends are behind it. But Ajoke and Lena have long suspected who the villains really are in this “hotel”. Together with the other children, they track down an outrageous crime.

“A feel-good movie about lovesickness, which is, in times of dating apps, still inspired by the faith in romantic love.” — Süddeutsche Zeitung

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?

The third movie of the promising young auteur Tom Lass, who co-wrote the script, co-produced, directed and played the leading male part, is about a sensitive topic: the emotional confusion of young people. Director Tom Lass takes a closer look, shooting with blind actors and old Berlin buddies, acting the lead himself – paying tribute to a way of life beyond our way of seeing the world.

BhFinalLow0The jury praised the balanced mixture of drama, comedy and romance, as well as the excellent cast Naomi Achternbusch, Tom Lass, Clara Schramm, Dimitri Stapfer, Peter Marty and Eva Löbau.

Here is a short synopsis: 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?

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 “Ugly & Blind“, and we are very happy and proud to congratulate Tom and the whole team to this tremendous success!
