THE GRINCH

For their eighth fully animated feature, Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss’ beloved holiday classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous holiday spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, it’s a universal story about the spirit of Christmas and the indomitable power of optimism.

MACKIE MESSER - BRECHTS DREIGROSCHENFILM

„Die Dreigroschenoper“, wie man sie noch nie gesehen hat: anspielungsreich, überbordend musikalisch und frech. Joachim A. Lang („George“, „Brecht – Die Kunst zu leben") interpretiert in seinem Kinofilmdebüt den Welterfolg von Brecht und Weill völlig neu. In einem fulminanten und fiebrigen filmischen Kraftakt lässt Lang Realität und Fiktion verschmelzen, wechselt fließend zwischen Brechts Kampf gegen die Filmindustrie und dessen Verfilmung der „Dreigroschenoper“, wie es sie niemals gab und sie hier vor den Augen des Publikums dennoch entsteht.
