"An Uncertain Border" is now available on DVD and as VOD in the W-film Shop as well as in regular stores. The film was released on 25 May during the lockdown in the W-film online cinema with solidarity revenue sharing from the closed cinemas. Director Isabella Sandri tells the gripping story of a child abduction as a genre mix between psychological thriller and outsider ballad, whose motifs are reminiscent of Kubrick's "Lolita" and Fellini's "La Strada"! Highly topical, because child abuse in cyberspace and grooming are unfortunately still a sad reality! Great cast with Cannes award winner Cosmina Stratan ("Beyond the Hills"), young actress Anna Malfatti in her first cinema role and Moisé Curia.
On 1 December 2021, the fabulous comedy "Notre Dame" will celebrate its German premiere as part of the French Film Week at Cinema Paris in Berlin. In the film, director Valérie Donzelli ("Declaration of War") also slips into the leading role of a single mother and Parisian architect between career, family and great love! She mixes the romantic turbulence with unrealistic outliers à la "Amélie" and charming wit.
On 9 November, the touching sister drama "Windstill" celebrated its successful German premiere at the Rio Filmpalast in Munich. In addition to director Nancy Camaldo, the main actors Giulia Goldammer, Thomas Schubert and Anselm Bresgott were also there to present their film.
