LONDON — Beta Cinema is gearing up for a busy Berlinale with the competition titles “Stations of the Cross” and “Jack,” the Panorama Special entry “Stereo,” and the market premiere of flagship production “The Physician,” which has proven to be a B.O. hit in Germany and Spain, as well as three other market premieres.
Dietrich Brueggemann’s “Stations of the Cross” is a story of radical faith, portraying a profoundly religious teenager who devotes her life to Jesus.
Edward Berger’s “Jack” is a stirring tale about a boy who learned early on to assume responsibility.
Maximilian Erlenwein’s feverish thriller “Stereo” hovers between delusion and reality and unites the German stars Juergen Vogel (“The Wave”) and Moritz Bleibtreu (“Run Lola Run”) for the first time.
After having been seen by almost four million theater-goers in Germany and Spain to date, the box-office hit “The Physician” will be presented in in an early market screening at the CineStar IMAX.
Also being presented by Beta Cinema for the first time at an international film market are the Enid Blyton sequel “The Famous Five III” (Sam Film/Constantin) by Mike Marzuk, the tragicomedy “Back on Track” (Neue Schoenhauser) by Kilian Riedhof (“Homevideo”), and “Global Player” (Sabotage/Stoehr Film) by Hannes Stoehr (“Berlin Calling,” “One Day in Europe”).
