Berlinale Selection: The Mover (Atlas)

Cyprus : Berlinale Selection: The Mover (Atlas)

The Goethe-Institut begins a new film series with Berlinale Selection 2019, which will present every autumn a selection of the best new German-speaking films of the year.

Films will be screened that have been positively reviewed internationally and that have received awards by juries. Films, which offer an insight into social issues in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and that make it possible to experience these countries through the medium of film. Films that are thought provoking and show new perspectives or that are just beautiful and fun.

As diverse and colourful as the societies are also the directors, actors and locations of these films.

Four of five films of the Berlinale Selection 2019 show different family situations and illustrate in a fascinating, dramatic or tragicomical way how people deal with their familial fate.

Drama // 100 minutes // 2018 // Directed by: David Nawrath

Walter is a mover for forced evictions. One day, the door to the old apartment that needs to be emptied is opened, and Jan, Walter's son, stands before him. His father, the mover, had abandoned him when he was a child.

Nawrath's powerful feature film debut tells the dramatic story of a man who does his utmost to protect the son he has just rediscovered from a criminal real estate clan. As The Mover develops dramatically, it becomes very emotionally powerful.

The theatre star Rainer Bock, who among others played in "The white ribbon" by Michael Haneke and "Inglourious Basterds" by Quentin Tarantino and who appeared in the British TV series "SS-GB", plays the leading role in Nawrath's dense film debut "Atlas" (The Mover). DIE WELT AM SONNTAG writes: "Bock is someone who can make the invisible visible. Bock is someone who - through a sharp glance, a turning of the head, menacing furrows – transforms in minutes a minimum of text into living people, playing out the physical states of their psyches".

The screening is taking place within the framework of the "Weeks of the German Language".
