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.

On 19th January, daredo media releases a new romantic tragicomedy on its Darling Berlin label: “Luca tanzt leise” (English: “Dancing Quietly“) by director Philipp Eichholtz, whose debut “Liebe mich!” (English: Love me!) was already a remarkable success in Germany’s independent movie scene. It tells the story of Luca, a young woman who tries to take her Abitur after some dark years of depression. Her little dog Mata helps her to find motivation and vitality. In order to pass the math exam, Luca makes a deal with her classmate Kurt: English for math. He becomes a reliable friend, even when it comes really bad for Luca…
Philipp Eichholtz’ movie raises questions. When do you actually succeed in ‘living’? Is it when you understand math and manage to take your Abitur? Or when you know how to get a doctor’s certificate in order to move your exams? Or when you find the right guy, who loves and wants you – and who’s not an asshole?
The German film media is already full of praise, not only for the film as such: “Director Philipp Eichholtz has made a light-footed and humorous Berlin film, with lots of improvisation…” (dRadio Kultur), but also for its actors: “Martina Schöne-Radunski and Hans-Heinrich Hardt become a dream team: They are acting in a very natural way that creates a good mood but doesn’t fail to mention the shady sides, too” *****(tip). “With its fresh and spontaneous narrative style, Philipp Eichholtz’ film reminds of the US mumblecore cinema and affects the viewer through the closeness of the actress to her character.” **** (Cinema)
“Luca tanzt leise” (“Dancing Quietly“) – in cinemas in Germany from 19th January 2017 and on DVD/VoD from 31st March 2017. Furthermore on Netflix worldwide starting 1st of April 2017.
daredo media is proud to announce that our film “Mann im Spagat (Pace, Cowboy, Pace)” will be screened at the 7th Annual Queens World Film Festival which takes place from March 14th to 19th, 2017 in Queens, NYC!
The movie, directed by Timo Jacobs, is kind of a sequel to Jacobs’ debut “Klappe Cowboy!“: ‘Free swinging for word 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 the Queens World Film Festival in March 2017!
Take some “Deep Blue Sea”, add a pinch of “The White Shark” and the whole paired with something “Sharknado”, “Waterworld” & “Planet of the Monkeys” and come out: “Planet of the Sharks“! But this is no fun, but bloodthirsty seriousness! Because when the sea level rises, there is only one species that can dominate the world … In a not too distant future: Climate change and the ever-increasing average temperature has caused the entire ice of the planet to melt. 98% of the land masses are now covered with water, and humanity fights on the world’s oceans for bare survival and the last drinking water reserves. But not only the pirates make life difficult for the last survivors in the two floating cities “Junk City” and “Sanctuary”, but above all the steadily increasing shark population. Led by a giant Alpha Shark, numerous swarms have joined together to jointly hunt for fresh meat in the form of the last humans …
Halloween, a contraction of “All Hallows’ Evening”, is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on October 31, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. It initiates the triduum of Hallowmas, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed believers. Typical festive Halloween activities include “trick or treating”, attending costume parties, decorating, carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns, lighting bonfires, apple bobbing, visiting haunted attractions, telling scary stories, and watching horror movies. Because of this, CiNENET Germany presents the „Halloween 2016 Horror Special“ playlist with films like “Zombie War”, “Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies”, “Haunting of Whaley House”, “Clown Of Fear” and more!
