Solemnoire‘s “The Black Sea Workbook” is an intimate experience of distance and longing. Inspired by a magic summer in Varna, it conjures up the vision of a primordial world, an imagined Black Sea as it might have been millions of years ago. Ten tracks pull you into a kaleidoscopic daydream of ancient continents overgrown with tropical green and the deep body of an ocean pregnant with life. A sense of personal revelation fills you as you travel through moments of majesty, melancholy and wonder. It is your world and your discovery. You who gazes toward distant shorelines, walks under a disapproving sun, imagines the dance of marine lifeforms, and trembles at the traces of prehuman activity. You who is permeated by a sense of longing, for the comfort of a remote world unmoved by human concerns.

The latest film of Darling Berlin‘s most productive darling Tom Lass, “Ugly & Blind” (“Blind & Hässlich“), has won the prestigious FIPRESCI prize, which is awarded by the International Federation of Film Critics. The third movie of the promising young auteur Tom Lass, who co-wrote the script, co-produced, directed and played the leading male part, is about a sensitive topic: the emotional confusion of young people. Director Tom Lass takes a closer look, shooting with blind actors and old Berlin buddies, acting the lead himself – paying tribute to a way of life beyond our way of seeing the world.
The jury praised the balanced mixture of drama, comedy and romance, as well as the excellent cast Naomi Achternbusch, Tom Lass, Clara Schramm, Dimitri Stapfer, Peter Marty and Eva Löbau.
Here is a short synopsis: Ferdi thinks he’s ugly – but likes the fact Jona is interested in him. Maybe because she’s blind. What Ferdi doesn’t suspect: She’s just pretending to be blind to be able to live cheaply in subsidized housing. How long can she maintain her charade? Can love, which is supposed to make you blind, even work out that way?
With Axel Ranisch, Karin Hanczewski, Jakob Lass, Lana Cooper, Martina Schöne-Radunski and Amelie Kiefer in supporting roles, we meet many actors from other Darling Berlin movies in “Ugly & Blind“, and we are very happy and proud to congratulate Tom and the whole team to this tremendous success!

Darling Berlin is proud to announce that the film „Mann im Spagat (Pace, Cowboy, Pace)“ is starting in selected cinemas all over Germany this Thursday!
The movie, directed by Timo Jacobs, is kind of a sequel to Jacobs’ debut “Klappe Cowboy!“. ‚Free swinging for world 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 your local cinema now!

The highly acclaimed movie (at Filmfest Munich, Max-Ophüls-Preis, Slamdance and others) tells the story of Kerstin, who is daydreaming her way out of a broken heart, when suddenly her mother, Charlotte, rings at her door, needing a place to stay. For mom has accidentally broken up with her common-law spouse and does not know where else to go now.

Bunt (Colorful) … no concept fits better to the three singing entertainers than this, because “Bunt” is also the new name of the current single of the band Vintage Vegas. The guys are sometimes loud and turned up, then again quietly and empathically. They are naughty and daring, but then again charming and handy. With “Bunt” they describe today’s women who take what they want, but what they definitely don’t want is boredom in life. In the club the take the green drink, the Beetle is painted purple, and the fingernails radiate sky-blue. Everything is allowed with courage to color and courage to be noisy. “Bunt” is a wonderful German pop song, decorated with swing elements, which animated to dancing and above all singing along.
