Someday we'll tell each other everything

Synposis

The summer of 1990 is hot in small-town Thuringia, in former East Germany. Maria is about to turn 19 lives with her boyfriend Johannes on his parents' farm and would rather lose herself in books than focus on graduating. There is a sense of a new era dawning when she bumps into Henner, the farmer next door. One touch is all it takes to ignite an all consumina passion between Maria and the headstrong, charismatic man twice her age. In an atmosphere buzzing with possibility, love is born: a secret love full or longing and passion that devours everything in its path.

director's Statement Emily Atef

What I found fascinating in Daniela Krien’s novel “Some Day We Will Tell Each Other Everything” is her taboo breaking portrayal of a young woman’s desire, of female desire, with all its facets. The curiosity of the main character Maria, to test her limits, to understand herself and life, without fear of transgressing moral or social boundaries. The fact that she is allowed to do this as a woman, especially as a young woman, is something I was very interested in bringing to the screen.

ZWEI ZU EINS eröffnet Filmfest München!

Exerpt from Blickpunt:Films:

Der Viktor Dok.horizonte Competition – Cinema of Urgency der Petra-Kelly Stiftung ist mit mit 5.000 Euro dotiert und ging an „Kamay“ von Ilyas Yourish und Shahrokh Bikaran, die in einer Familiengeschichte eine unbekannte Seite Afghanistans zeigen.Die Jury dazu: „Wir möchten eine Geschichte auszeichnen, die so noch nie erzählt wurde. Eine Geschichte, die erschütternde Erfahrungen einer Familie und gleichzeitig das Schicksal einer ganzen ethnischen Gruppe beleuchtet. Die Filmemacher führen in ‘Kamay' die Zuschauer*innen behutsam durch die Trauer einer Familie – und legen zugleich die Ursprünge jahrhundertelanger Unterdrückung offen. Die Regisseure finden eine einzigartige Bildsprache, um die Kultur der Hazara filmisch darzustellen und ihren Stimmen auf einfühlsame und poetische Weise Gehör zu verschaffen.“

The Playmaker sells TWO TO ONE in at the Cannes Film Market
https://variety.com/2024/film/global/the-playmaker-two-to-one-sandra-huller-1235997778/​​​

The Playmaker is thrilled to announce the successful closure of several significant distribution deals bringing Two to One to audiences in France (KMBO), Spain (A Contracorriente), Australia (Madman) and Greece (Rosebud).
Short Synopsis:
In „Two to One,“ a group of clever East-Germans seizes the chaotic post-GDR era in 1990 to retrieve hidden millions from an underground vault. As they outsmart formidable opponents, the heist takes an unexpected turn when money officially unrecognized in the GDR circulates.
Featuring the 2024 Academy Award-nominated Sandra Hüller („Anatomy of a Fall“, „Toni Erdmann“), alongside Max Riemelt („Sense 8“) and Ronald Zehrfeld („Barbara“, „Phoenix“), this historical comedy, based on a true story set in the GDR, promises laughs, unexpected twists, and brilliant performances. From the producers of „Three days in Quiberon“, „Lunchbox“, „War Sailor“, and “Human Factors”, Two to One is a must-watch.
The Playmaker will present “Two to One” in a private screening at the Marché du Film 2024.
 
"Two to One" is a German production by Row Pictures and Zischlermann Filmproduktion, in co-production with ZDF, in cooperation with Arte and Lichtblick Film- und Fernsehproduktion. The film is directed by Natja Brunckhorst, known for her critically acclaimed work on “Alles in Bester Ordnung” and “Wie Feuer und Flamme”. The local distributor for the project is X-Verleih (Germany).

Director’s Bio:
Natja Brunckhorst's career began with her unforgettable portrayal of Christiane F. in the 1981 film CHRISTIANE F. - WIR KINDER VOM BAHNHOF ZOO.  She later transitioned to screenwriting, penning scripts for the television series "Einsatz Hamburg Süd" and several "Tatort" episodes. Her screenplay for FEUER UND FLAMME, drawing from her own life, won her the German Film Award in 2001. Brunckhorst's writing talents also contributed to the award-winning children's film AMELIE RENNT.  She further expanded her repertoire by directing the successful film ALLES IN BESTER ORDNUNG, solidifying her status as a versatile and accomplished filmmaker.
