George Clooney’s ‘The Monuments Men’ Gets Berth At Berlin Film Festival

George Clooney’s ‘The Monuments Men’ Gets Berth At Berlin Film Festival

The Berlin Film Festival has added George Clooney‘s The Monuments Men to its official program. This is the second film announced by the fest which kicks off on February 6th. Both Monuments Men and the recently-announced Berlin opener The Grand Budapest Hotel were shot in Germany. This will be the international premiere of Monuments Men, which is based on a true story and focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by the Allies with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. The subject is especially timely given that just this week, 1,500 works of art were discovered in a Munich apartment, allegedly including masterpieces by Marc Chagall, Max Liebermann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Oskar Kokoschka, Edvard Munch, Emil Nolde and Albrecht Dürer. “Over five million cultural assets stolen by the Nazis were returned to their countries of origin in the years following World War II. As the recent discovery in Munich demonstrates, the art theft of that time is as current as ever. The Monuments Men finally gives this little-known subject a worldwide audience,” said festival director Dieter Kosslick. This is Clooney’s second directorial appearance in the official program after 2003′s Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind. Clooney also co-wrote, produced and stars in the movie with Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and Cate Blanchett. The Monuments Men shot at Studio Babelsberg and Berlin, among other locations. 20th Century Fox, which has international rights, will release The Monuments Men in Germany on February 20th, 2014. Sony releases in the U.S. on February 7th.

Here si the offical website of the film festival Berlinale

Additional Information
Nov 08, 2013:
 
The Monuments Men in the Official Programme of the 64th Berlinale
 
The international premiere of George Clooney’s dramatic adventure The Monuments Men will be presented in the official programme of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival.

“Over five million cultural assets stolen by the Nazis were returned to their countries of origin in the years following World War II. As the recent discovery in Munich demonstrates, the art theft of that time is as current as ever. The Monuments Men finally gives this little-known subject a worldwide audience,” says Berlinale Director Dieter Kosslick.
 
Still missing are thousands and thousands of cultural assets and documents worth billions of dollars. The Monuments Men touches on a subject matter that re-surfaced with the discovery of 1,400 works of art in a Munich apartment. The collection of found objects allegedly includes masterpieces by Marc Chagall, Max Liebermann, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Oskar Kokoschka, Edvard Munch, Emil Nolde and Albrecht Dürer.
 
A German-American co-production, The Monuments Men is based on a true story and focuses on an unlikely World War II platoon, tasked by the Allies with going into Germany to rescue artistic masterpieces from Nazi thieves and returning them to their rightful owners. It would be an impossible mission: with the art trapped behind enemy lines, and with the German army under orders to destroy everything as the Reich fell, how could these guys – seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, all more familiar with Michelangelo than the M-1 gun – possibly hope to succeed? But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time to avoid the destruction of 1000 years of culture, they would risk their lives to protect and defend mankind’s greatest achievements.
 
Two-time Academy Award winner George Clooney has been a frequent guest of the Berlinale as a producer, actor and director. The Monuments Men will be his second directorial appearance in the official programme after Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (Berlinale 2003).
 
Director, screenwriter, producer and actor George Clooney assembled a high-calibre ensemble for The Monuments Men: Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville and Cate Blanchett. The screenplay is written by George Clooney and Grant Heslov, who as screenwriters have twice been nominated for an Academy Award. The film is based on the book by Robert M. Edsel with Bret Witter, and is produced by Grant Heslov and George Clooney, who won last year’s Oscar for Best Picture (Argo).
 
The Monuments Men is a co-production by Obelisk Productions Limited and Studio Babelsberg. Shooting took place at Studio Babelsberg, in the Goslar region and in Berlin, among other locations.
 
20th Century Fox, who has international rights, will release The Monuments Men in Germany on February 20, 2014. Sony has the US rights and will release the film on February 7.

What an amazing photo in your link, Nicky!

If it'll be shown at the Berlin Int film festival, then suffice it to assume that its release shouldn't be postponed much later than that.

IM, where are those photos from tripadvisor from?

They must have recreated it in the derelict cathedral they used for filming, but I'm just trying to remember which bombed Cathedral it was in originally. Will check the book

Clooney Nazi Art Thriller Due At Berlin Film Fest, Organisers

Post by Mazy on Fri Nov 22 2013, 04:40

Clooney Nazi Art Thriller Due At Berlin Film Fest, Organisers

Oscar winner George Clooney will present his Nazi-era art thriller "The Monuments Men" at the Berlin film festival in February against the backdrop of a new real-life drama surrounding looted masterpieces, organisers said Friday.

Clooney is due on the red carpet of the 64th annual event running February 6-16 to show his new movie, based on the true story of a US platoon charged with rescuing priceless artworks from the Nazis during World War II.

The announcement dovetails with revelations this week that an elderly recluse in the southern German city of Munich hid a stash of more than 1,400 artworks believed stolen by the Nazis in his garbage-strewn flat for decades.

The paintings, sketches and prints include priceless works by Picasso, Matisse and Chagall thought lost forever that may have been taken from Jewish collectors, extracted from them under duress for a pittance or seized from museums as part of a Nazi crackdown on modernist "degenerate" art.

"Over five million cultural assets stolen by the Nazis were returned to their countries of origin in the years following World War II," festival director Dieter Kosslick said in a statement.

"As the recent discovery in Munich demonstrates, the art theft of that time is as current as ever. 'The Monuments Men' finally gives this little-known subject a worldwide audience."

The unit portrayed in the film, comprised of seven museum directors, curators, and art historians, was tasked by the Allies with recovering masterpieces behind enemy lines and returning them to their rightful owners.

Clooney directed and co-wrote the film and assembled a cast including Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett and John Goodman. It was filmed in Germany and is due to come out in the United States on February 7.

Organisers of the festival known as the Berlinale announced Tuesday that an all-star romp by US director Wes Anderson, "The Grand Budapest Hotel", would open the event on February 6.
