The German independent hit “Love Steaks” – one of the six nominees for the German Film Prize – has just started in cinemas over Austria and entered the Austrian movie charts at #18 right after the first weekend. Together with its partner Polyfilm GmbH, daredo media has brought the movie that was produced and directed by students of Germany’s most respected film university HFF Konrad Wolf to the screens of Austria. The movie was awarded with many prizes, for instance at the Filmfest München, at Karlovy Vary and Rotterdam, it has won the Camerimage and Slamdance Festival prize and the Max Ophüls Prize in Saarbrücken.
„We were sure that ‘Love Steaks’ would be a great success also in Austria, but we haven’t expected the movie to enter the charts at such a high position“, daredo media’s product manager Andreas Stumpf said. „This is also great news for Switzerland where ‘Love Steaks’ will be released in late August.“The web portal of Austria’s leading magazine for economics, money and politics has announced the theatrical release of our flagship movie “Love Steaks” in Austria: With „Love Steaks“ the makers 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. The filmmakers call the new concept behind the movie ‘Fogma’, which was inspired by Lars von Trier’s Dogma rules but represents completely different aspects of filmmaking. To fit in the Fogma method, the two actors worked with the hotel staff even when not shooting. By not using written dialogue they 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 the story, shaped it and pushed the scenes to a new intensity.
