DAU. Natasha - the most controversial film project at Berlinale 2020

DAU. Natasha - film works in Kharkiv, Ukraine - fot.   I have to confess I wasn’t aware of all the controversy the film DAU. Natasha had provoked when I decided to go for a screening of this film. The controversy had circled around the production of the DAU project - shot as 700 hours raw material from 2008 to 2011 on set in Kharkiv/Ukraine - as well as in particular the torture scene of the DAU.Natasha installment depicting a women forced to insert a bottle into her vagina.

Late Bloomers in Switzerland

Four older women have an untypical business idea in the quiet and conservative Emmental region. That is the begin of the best Swiss comedy in recent years. When the enterprising seniors decide to convert a boring local corner shop into a chic lingerie store, their community is thrown into disarray. There are plenty of controversies and intrigues but the four ladies do not give up.   Wise comedy about and from Emmental The 80-years-old Martha (played wonderful by Stephanie Glaser) and her team show in an amusing and wise way that it is never too late to pursue your own dreams. As “late bloomers” they learn to drive, to use Internet, to overcome all difficulties. And that with lots of humor and charme.  Best Swiss film in recent years This movie ( Die Herbstzeitlosen – in German) had its premiere during the Film Festival in Locarno in August 2006 and got standing ovations. It was Switzerland’s submission to the 80 th Academy Awards for the Best Foreign Language
