Panorama preeming Teutonic twosome

Berlin film fest adds German duo, doc

Teutonic titles “The Red Cockatoo,” by Dominik Graf, and “Tough Enough,” by Detlev Buck, will world preem in the Berlin Film Festival’s Panorama section.

In addition to two other films set in Germany, “The Kick” and “Happy as One” (announced previously), the Panorama will unspool the documentary “Last to Know” by Marc Bauder and Doerte Franke.

Set in 1961 in the East German city of Dresden, “Red Cockatoo” features Max Riemelt (“Napola”) and Jessica Schwarz in a tale of romance, rebellious youth and a burgeoning music scene set against a backdrop of growing totalitarian oppression.

Based on the novel by Gregor Tessnow, “Tough Enough” is about how a young man’s life drastically changes when he moves from Berlin’s upscale Zehlendorf district to the working-class, ethnically mixed borough of Neukoelln.

“Last to Know” examines the lives of former “public enemies” of East Germany — a tour guide, a pastor and his wife and a writer — presenting the harsh reality of life in the former communist country from which many have still not recovered. An estimated 250,000 political prisoners suffered under the totalitarian regime.

The Berlinale runs Feb. 9-19.
