German Afghan Film - Between Worlds - Looks Like a Winner

By Alex Deleon <filmfestivals.com> "Zwischen Welten" (Between Worlds) a Stark new drama about a German military unit on a peacekeeping mission in a most inhospitable Afghan village has Golden Bear written all over it. It's German, it's political, it's timely, it's depressing, it's unhappy, it's a damn well made military thriller --  and the director, Feo Aladag, is a woman ~ what more could a Berlinale Jury ask for! Of course there are other emoti...

1999 in Mexico City: „Fede”, his roommate Santos and Fede´s younger brother Tomás hanging out in a spartan housing block apartment somewhere in the big city. They have nothing to do, because the university is currently on strike, the power is turned off and the fridge almost empty. And Fede, also called „Sombra” (shade), is afraid of going to be crazy – because of the Tiger, who is haunting in his head. What fairly desolate starts, becomes in &bd...
