‘Angel’ takes slice of Eurimages cash

Fourteen European films share $6.9 million

BERLIN — European subsidy fund Eurimages has slated E4.87 million ($6.9 million) for a total of 14 international co-productions, including “Downfall” director Oliver Hirschbiegel’s upcoming gangster biopic “Das Engelsgesicht” (Angel Face) and Gerardo Olivares’ fact-based Spanish drama “Entre Lobos” (Among Wolves).

A German-Italian co-production from Norbert Preuss’ Munich-based Fanes Film, “Das Engelsgesicht” stars Moritz Bleibtreu as real-life mob hitman-turned-stool pigeon Giorgio Basile.

Spain’s Wanda Films is partnering with Germany’s Sophisticated Films and the newly launched company Arakao on “Entre Lobos,” about a young goatherd who befriends a pack of wolves when forced to fend for himself in the Sierra de Cordoba for more than a decade.

Disney’s “Hexe Lilli — Die Reise nach Mandolan” (“Lilly the Witch: The Journey to Mandolan”), Harald Sicheritz’s sequel to this year’s hit German tyke pic about a precocious young girl and wielder of magic, also picked up Eurimages coin. “Lilli” is produced by Munich-based Blue Eyes Fiction with Austrian and Spanish partners — Spanish thesp Pilar Bardem stars in the franchise.

Also receiving coin were Olivier Babinet and Fred Kihn’s French title “Robert Mitchum est mort”; Krisztina Deak Hungarian drama “Aglaja”; Ireland’s “As If I’m Not There,” from Juanita Wilson; Semih Kaplanoglu’s Turkish production “Bal”; and Nanouk Leopold’s Dutch title “Brownian Movement.”

Additional recipients include Titus Faschina’s German-Romanian documentary “Dem Himmel ganz nah”; France’s “Et si on vivait tous ensemble,” from Stephane Robelin; Andreas Pantzis’ Cyprian title “I Kara Kai I Thlipsi Tou Somatos”; Saverio Costanzo’s “La solitudine dei numeri primi”; Swedish doc “My Heart of Darkness,” from Staffan Julen and Marius Van Niekerk; and Agnes Merlet’s French-Irish title “The Last Furlong.”
