Darling Berlin’s latest movie “Ugly & Blind” by director and screenwriter Tom Lass is starting in cinemas all over Germany on September, 21st! The highly acclaimed movie has won several prizes, e.g. at the Filmfest Munich where “Ugly & Blind” has won the the prestigious FIPRESCI prize, which is awarded by the International Federation of Film Critics, or at the Filmfest Oldenburg, where it has been awarded with the German Independence Award for ‘Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble’. Press critics are enthusiastic, too: “…a wonderful love story…” (Der Tagesspiegel); “…a brisk and dreamy Coming-of-age drama…” (Süddeutsche Zeitung).

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 “Blind & Ugly”. Here is a short synopsis of the movie: 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?

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.

BhFinalLow0The 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.
