German distrib takes 'Late Quartet,' 'No Place on Earth'

MOSCOW — German distributor Senator has added Paul Thomas Anderson’s “The Master” to its distribution slate.

The Weinstein Co. production stars Philip Seymour Hoffman, Joaquin Phoenix and Amy Adams in the 1950s-set story of a troubled WWII veteran drawn to and repelled by a mysterious community.

Senator also has taken German rights for Yaron Zilberman’s classical music drama “A Late Quartet,” starring Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Imogene Poots, and documentary “No Place on Earth,” by Janet Tobias, which tells the true story of the Ukrainian Jews who hid from the Nazis for 18 months in an underground cave system.

Meanwhile, Germany’s Autentic, a Beta Film joint venture, has picked up Martin Scorsese’s documentary “George Harrison — Living in the Material World.” Autentic, which also operates Spiegel TV with news magazine Der Spiegel, is slating the film for that outlet.
