Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 25.04.2011

Die Klitschko-Brüder sind mit Sicherheit nicht die größten Boxer aller Zeiten – sie gehören aber zu den (körperlich) größten und dominieren auch deswegen die Schwergewichtsszene seit einigen Jahren. Vitali und Wladimir Klitschko sind dabei ein Phänomen: zwei Ukrainer, die in Deutschland so beliebt sind wie keine anderen Boxer. Die Dokumentation “Klitschko” von Sebastian Dehnhardt über [...]

Tribeca: “Semper Fi” – one marine fights the system (the Department of Defense)

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 24.04.2011

But maybe it needs a stubborn person like him to fight the system – especially if the system is the Department of Defense. Rachel Libert and Tony Hardmon [...]

Tribeca: “The Trip” – Michael Winterbottom’s comedy shows Britain’s culinary highlights (yes, they exist!)

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 22.04.2011

Michael Winterbottom is easily one of the best – if not the best – directors in Britain in the last two decades.

Keine Kommentare | Beitrag vom 22.04.2011

Christmas 1994: 4 Algerian extremists, members of the terror group GIA, hijack an Air France plane on its way from Algier to Paris. This attack has a similar meaning to France as the hijacking of the “Landshut”, the Lufthansa plane, in 1977 for Germany. It could have turned into an attack not unlike 9/11 seven [...]

Von hier sind es nur einige Minuten Fußweg bis zum Hauptquartier des Tribeca Film Festivals, untergebracht in einem alten Backsteingebäude. Doch so unterschiedlich die Architektur ist, so sehr sind Film [...]
