Berlinale

Berlinale
12.00 - 22.00 Various Venues

You are likely to feel the pulse of the city quicken and pictures of bears will be cropping up across Berlin this month as the biggest and most glamorous film festival of the year approaches.

If you are a bit of a celebrity spotter you could be in luck as previous attendees include Ann Hathaway, Jude Law, Matt Damon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Shia LaBeouf, Hugh Jackman, Holly Hunter and Juliette Binoche.

There are more than 400 films to choose from so we have picked out a few that look to be worth watching:

52 Tuesdays – Sophie Hyde

Every teenager thinks their life is messy but for poor Billie hers is chaotic. Her mother is undergoing gender-reassignment and so they agree to meet once a week on a Tuesday to try to patch up their worn out relationship. The actors were unknowns and only received the scripts one week at a time and only had their own scenes so it was a journey of discovery for them too that comes across well in the final cut and gives the film a unique sense of realism.

God Help the Girl - Stuart Murdoch

With a scattering of mildly famous faces including Emily Browning and Hannah Murray this musical number is a story of life and hope. Eve (Browning) learns to deal with her emotional problems by writing songs after a spell in hospital. The project was conceived and produced by Stuart Murdoch, lead singer of the group Belle and Sebastian and you can buy an album with all the music from the film too.

Einstein and Einstein – Cao Baoping

Li Wan wants to change her life and she is pushing the boundaries of her upbringing in China. Instead of reading classic Chinese poetry like her father suggests she is more into Stephen Hawking. The second Einstein in her life is her dog who inevitably becomes a friend and confidant.
