Marks for ‘Lenin’

German pic tops Euro Film Acad noms

LONDON — Wolfgang Becker’s “Good Bye, Lenin!” leads the nominations for this year’s European Film Awards, with five nods, followed by Stephen Frears’ “Dirty Pretty Things” and Lars Von Trier’s “Dogville” with four apiece.

Those three movies are all competing for the best film prize, along with Michael Winterbottom’s “In This World,” Isabelle Coixet’s “My Life Without Me” and Francois Ozon’s “Swimming Pool.”

Becker, Coixet, Von Trier and Winterbottom are nominated for best director, with nods also for Nuri Bilge Ceylan (“Uzak”) and Marco Tullio Giordana (“The Best of Youth”).

The best actor prize is a race between Daniel Bruehl (“Good Bye, Lenin!”), Chiwetel Ejiofor (“Dirty Pretty Things”), Luigi Lo Cascio (“The Best of Youth”), Tomas Lemarquis (“Noi Albinoi”), Jean Rochefort (“L’Homme Du Train”) and Bruno Todeschini (“Son Frere”).

The actress category includes Helen Mirren (“Calendar Girls”), Charlotte Rampling (“Swimming Pool”), Anne Reid (“The Mother”), Katrin Sass (“Good Bye, Lenin”), Katja Riemann (“Rosenstrasse”) and Diana Dumbrava (“Maria”).

It was a remarkably good year for the long-unfashionable German cinema, with the strong showing of “Good Bye, Lenin!,” plus nods for “Rosenstrasse” (best actress), “The Miracle of Berne” and “Distant Lights” (both for best cinematographer), “Schultze Gets the Blues” (discovery award), “Eat, Sleep, No Woman” and “The Story of The Weeping Camel” (best doc).

The nominees for best non-European film are an eclectic bunch, ranging from “Finding Nemo,” “Kill Bill: Volume 1,” “Mystic River,” “Lost in Translation” and “21 Grams” to Denys Arcand’s “The Barbarian Invasions,” Takeshi Kitano’s “Zatoichi” and Kim Ki-Duk’s “Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter … and Spring” from Korea.

The awards, given by the European Film Academy, will be handed out Dec. 6 at a ceremony in Berlin.
