Long ago, the Berlinale is a Season of the year. "Let us in front of the Berlinale," or alternatively, "we don't Want to see us after the Berlinale?" are phrases from November until the beginning of February almost standard speech. As moviegoers, take a holiday for the movie Marathon. The offensive democratisation of the art of film, for which the difference is at the end of the Festival head Dieter Kosslick for a long time after his last curtain still standing, has led to the fact that cinema is determined in these ten days in February, everyday life, no matter in which form. That in the case of an international film festival, the "neighborhood" plays a role, is as little natural as the star kitchen at the Culinary cinema.

In the cinema sitting with other people about what they have Seen and communicate, the movies celebrate, which has become more important, even if the Numbers fluctuate. The Shine, the of the fall of the wall, foreshadowing, with the beautiful festival scenes also lots of pictures.

Many will want to share
Although the city is full of critics, gives Berlin in the harsh February, the impression to be a smiling and glamorous city, a cool city with a magnetic film forces. No matter how often laments that too few Stars and too many bad movies, this Suction can be attracted to it.

This may be due to the fact that Dieter Kosslick has always been to give pretty much every visitor to the exclusive feeling, to be a very special mosaic part in this Festival.
