DER REST IST SCHWEIGEN (“THE REST IS SILENCE”)

Federal Republic of Germany 1959 · 103 min · DF · 35 mm · FSK 12 (PG12)

D: Helmut Käutner S: Helmut Käutner based on a model by Shakespeare

C: Igor Oberberg Cast: Hardy Kruger, Peter van Eyck, Ingrid Andree amongst others

Shakespeare's Hamlet in an interpretation by Helmut Käutner, who transports the play

to the Ruhr area in 1959 during the time of the German economic miracle.

Käutner subtly brings to light subjects of repression and a seemingly de-nazified society. John H. Claudius returns from the USA as the heir of the Claudius steelworks after the death of his father. In doubt about the alleged cause of death and tormented by his suspicion that his stepfather and uncle Paul is his father’s murderer, he stages the murder with the help of a ballet ensemble. The film could only be produced because of the efforts of the directors Harald Braun, Helmut Käutner and Wolfgang Staudte, who founded the production company Freie Film Produktion GmbH in Hamburg from 1958 to 1960, under which the production KIRMES (1960) was created by Staudte. The exterior shots were taken in Dusseldorf-Lohausen, Oberhausen and London.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING

GB / USA 1993 · 110 min

D: Kenneth Branagh - Starring: Kenneth Branagh, Keanu Reeves,

Emma Thompson, Denzel Washington, Kate Beckinsale

In the battle, Claudio (Robert Sean Leonard) and Benedict (Kenneth Branagh) have fought bravely - along with the army of Don Pedro (Denzel Washington), they have defeated his half-brother, Don Juan (Keanu Reeves) - and now they are recovering at the governour, Leonato’s (Richard Briers), court. Here the leisure hours are eagerly used. Claudio sets about conquering Hero (Kate Beckinsale), Leonato’s daughter. Nothing seems to stand in the way of their happiness - and the soon-to-occur wedding. In the meantime, Benedict gets involved in endless squabbles with Leonato's niece, Beatrice (Emma Thompson). In their apparent mutual contempt, they do not mince words, hurling endless insults at one another. It takes some convincing work from their friends to persuade the brawlers that there is actually a deep affection connecting them - if not more. Their newly won harmony is put to the test as Don Juan, who is constantly wreaking havoc, tries to destroy the love of Claudio and Hero through an intrigue.
