‘Murderer’ zooms into top place

Scharang adds TV movie fest trophy to treasure trove

BARCELONA — Adding to its trophy trawl, Elisabeth Scharang’s “Mein Morder” (My Murderer) took best TV film at the 4th ZoomIgualada European TV Movies Festival, which wrapped Sunday.

Produced by Vienna-based Wega-Film, “Murderer” is Scharang’s helming debut and turns on a child who was tortured at a Nazi euthanasia clinic. Years later, he bumps into a doctor from that nightmare hospital.

“Murderer” already won the top prize at the Festival International de Programmes Audiovisuels at Biarritz in France this January.

The special award for script went ex-aequo to Carlos Claver’s “Electroshock,” a sapphic romancer set in the last gasps of Franco’s dictatorship, and Walter Deuber’s “Ricordare Anna,” about the spiritual reunion of a father with his daughter, who died years earlier.

Produced by Zip Films, Dacsa Produccions, Kines Producciones, TV3 and TVV, Electroshock” also collected the public award.

There was a good buzz on Jean-Marc Brondolo’s middle-aged crisis drama “Aller simple.”

The quality of the pics, which were mainly first-time outings, suggests their low budgets could encourage as much as stifle the imagination of their creators.

Fest ran Nov. 8-12.
