  Even stupid, a bad conscience. Kate (Catherine Keener is) with old designer furniture and is specialized to sight with her husband Alex (Oliver Platt) to the estate of recently deceased, peddling the best pieces in an exclusive junk shop in New York at the discerning clientele – of course with rich premium. Because she has but the whole thing a queasy feeling, Kate distributed to the homeless in their neighborhood 20-dollar bills as if they were candy, while it is rather stingy of their own teenage daughter. Obviously very politically correct and always with reference to the misery of other people. And then there’s the grim 91-year-old neighbor Andra (Ann Morgan Guilbert) in the apartment next door, speculating on the death of Kate and Alex, to subsequently purchase the apartment and thus increase their own place to live on. Andra is maintained by her granddaughter, Rebecca (Rebecca Hall), while her sister Mary (Amanda Peet) makes no secret of how much her the fate of the old lady does not matter. Much prefer the always starts and plenty solariumgebräunte classified the alcohol beautician an affair with Alex, his relationship with Kate resembles more of a long friendship. , Nicole Holofcener makes with Please Give, which was shown out of competition in the Berlinale competition, continued where they had last left off with Friends with Money: It’s about the neuroses of those who actually have anything to completely even bourgeois existences and their generally relatively trivial issues to sex and the life crises of middle age and the fact that ultimately everything will be fine. Although death and disease occur almost incidentally, also, just like love and the emotional life of a Fünzehnjährigen, which is in the midst of puberty. All this is in part to tremendously witty dialogues and punch lines garnish, reminiscent of Woody Allen’s always a little Annie Hall without ever achieving his Grade. One is talking in an easy way, especially when the cranky old neighbor of Kate and Alex their sardonic views on life are the best, and otherwise just takes no bones about it. However, one has forgotten the whole thing, despite an admirable Catherine Keener also quite quickly – especially in the hectic days of the Berlinale. For the next film is waiting … (Joachim Kurz)

Give em Hell, Malone!

           Give ’em Hell, Malone!                Genre: Thriller, Action
               Private detective, gangster, Bags
  Full-bodied will Give ’em Hell, Malone! as a mixture of the great Walter Hill Action movies Last Man Standing and Robert Rodriguez ‘Sin City touted visual overkill – and that makes sense. One is fighting against all and furniture, costume and look are 1A Film Noir. A pinch Punisher (also with Thomas Jane) has also been sprinkled over it. Give ’em Hell, Malone! offers brutal action, cool sayings, dangerously beautiful women and hard men who can not only distribute, but also insert. Nevertheless, Give ’em Hell, Malone! noted why he was not a hit in America and this country does not even come to the cinema. , Malone (Thomas Jane, The Mist) is replaced by the mysterious Evelyn (Elsa Pataky) is mandated to Whitmore gangster boss (Gregory Harrison steal) case. But Malone ran into a trap, just as it comes with life. Clear that he wants to know now who is behind the cause. The contents of the suitcase, he also reserves for safety first for themselves. Since the Whitmore case necessarily will have again, the rushes of his best men and Boulder (Ving Rhames, Dawn of the Dead, Scorpion King), the hardest of the hard to Malone. But this can by no punch and no ball staying in the world to achieve his goal. Because it’s not just Malone alone. His family was killed once and Malone knows that the swamp into which he has fallen, has something to do with the death of his loved ones. And Malone can go to hell … Russell Mulcahy is not a beginner, that you immediately and you know anyway. The director of inter alia Highlander and Resident Evil: Extinction burns with the (rather sparse) $ 15,000,000 budget an action fireworks that has washed himself. Stylish Shooting orgies, breakneck car on nighttime hunts, rain-slicked streets, dark and brutal fights street canyons – the appearance in Give ’em Hell, Malone! is flawless. Unfortunately, the screenplay by Mark Hosak rather mau and tried with the regular appearance of Malone’s drunken mother, desperately in an element of humor which, in fact angry, to press story. Malone goes through yet more human than Mickey Rourke’s reincarnation of Marv in Sin City, you have really no desire to follow the story. She’s good for little, only a thin, red thread and spins in circles. Understand not wrong, Give ’em Hell, Malone! is completely cool and beautiful brutal. But there is much idle and only a little life in the people. And the little bit of depth that the figures given seem to put on and alibi duplicated. Look at the values it is not, therefore, that Give ’em Hell, Malone! not light consistently. But despite the shortcomings, Give ’em Hell, Malone! Action movies should have seen a more beautiful, the genre fans. (Renatus Töpke)
