Between the balance-sheet for the film festival : mediocrity determined by the competition of the Berlinale

The conclusion of this Berlinale is overshadowed by the cancellation of the Chinese Competition entry "One Second" by Zhang Yimou. Thus the race for the Golden bear to a movie decimated to 16 the number of candidates. However, not only in terms of numbers this Year is extremely thin. So the event and the amount punktarm was no competition, the meager yield is water on the mills of the Kosslick critics. You could argue that the Berlinale 2018 has been no outstanding star movies a most interesting under Dieter Kosslick.

Of the weak competition a conclusion to derive, therefore, difficult. It engages too soon, Kosslick is a lack of Motivation. After the last fierce criticism of him would have been a Grand finale. Nevertheless, you have to wonder why the Berlinale is not successful, a more varied program. Although it was Fatih akin's "The Golden glove" no dropouts, but a new Impulse or curiosity to exciting cinematic images in Marie Kreutzers "The ground under your feet," "Mr. Jones" by Agnieszka Holland or Roberto-Saviano-to-film adaptation of "La paranza dei bambini" in vain.

Schanelec was appointed for the first Time in the competition; Lone Scherfig, Fatih Akin, Isabel Coixet, Wang Quan'an, Francois Ozon, Agnieszka Holland and Denis Côté are old Acquaintances. Since the assumption is that wants to adopt Kosslick in the circle of friends of the big stage.

another rumor is less flattering. That Kosslick can no longer count as a lame duck in his last year on his contacts with producers and distributors. There would be something that would throw neither to the industry nor to the Berlinale in a good light. The future of the festival may not be the fate of a Person is linked. Symptoms of fatigue are at the Berlinale normal. The competition after the cancellation of "One Second" ends now on Thursday, but no cause for relief.
