Berlin Film Festival Plans Tributes to Philip Seymour Hoffman, Maximilian Schell

BERLIN — The Berlin Film Festival has added two special screenings to honor the memory of Philip Seymour Hoffman and Maximilian Schell, who both died recently.

To celebrate the life of Hoffman, the festival will screen Bennett Miller’s “Capote” at the CinemaxX 6 on Feb. 11 at 9.00 P.M. local time. Hoffman received a Golden Globe and an Oscar for his perf in the film, which played in the Berlinale Competition in 2006.

Hoffman also appeared in other films at the Berlinale, such as Richard Kwietniowski’s “Owning Mahowny” (Panorama, 2003), Spike Lee’s “25th Hour” (Competition, 2003), Anthony Minghella’s “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Magnolia,” which won the Golden Bear.

In memory of actor and director Schell, producers Margit Chuchra (mm-production), Dieter Pochlatko (EPO) and Werner Schweizer (Dschoint Ventschr) are presenting his film “Meine Schwester Maria” (My Sister Maria), in collaboration with the festival and the German Film Academy. It will be showing at the Urania Filmbuehne Berlin on Feb. 9 at 3.00 P.M. local time.

In this complex film portrait, Schell reflects on his relationship with his sister, showing great respect for her achievements, but also sorrow and regret when it comes to her difficulties in later life.

In 1962, Schell won an Oscar for his performance as Hans Rolfe in Stanley Kramer’s “Judgment at Nuremberg.” His documentary “Marlene,” about Marlene Dietrich, was screened in the Berlin Competition in 1984. He returned to the Competition as an actor in Jeroen Krabbe’s “Left Luggage” in 1998.
