Berlin fest sets sked

Several major year-end U.S. releases are among the initial group of films announced for the 44th Berlin Intl. Film Festival, which will unspool Feb. 10-21.

Lone English-lingo world premiere firmed to date is Ken Loach’s “Ladybird, Ladybird.” Other British entries are James Ivory’s “The Remains of the Day,” Richard Attenborough’s “Shadowlands” and Jim Sheridan’s Anglo-Irish “In the Name of the Father.”

American lineup includes other films already widely seen stateside: Jonathan Demme’s “Philadelphia,” Aussie Peter Weir’s “Fearless” and Brian De Palma’s “Carlito’s Way.” Berlin lineup regularly includes several big fall-winter U.S. releases, and this year is no exception.

Some observers were expecting “Schindler’s List” to make its German bow at Berlin, but Steven Spielberg’s award-winning Holocaust epic will already have opened in Germany by the time the fest begins.

French items will be Alain Resnais’ acclaimed twin pix “Smoking” and “No Smoking,” already playing in Paris, and Tonie Marshall’s “Pas Catholique.”

Italy will send Mario Monicelli’s “Cari Fottutissimi” and Alessandro di Robilant’s “Il Guidice Ragazzino,” and Spain will be repped by Jesus Garay’s “Els de Davant.”
