European Film Award

A film about the former East German secret service has won the European Film Award. And Michael Althen sees in 'Das Leben der anderen" by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, another sign that German cinema is finally is becoming important again. "This continues the wondrous flood of prizes that hasn't stopped since the Oscar in 2003 for Caroline Link's 'Nowhere in Africa.' 'Head On' won a Golden Bear in 2004 and also a European Film Award, after 'Goodbye, Lenin!' paved the way. Three victories in four years suggests a similar dominance over the European Film Award that Gianni Amelio, Ken Loach or Pedro Almodóvar once enjoyed... It is no longer an accident. There almost seems to be a pattern here. Especially as, even away from the limelight of award ceremonies, German cinema is suddenly being taken seriously, where it was ignored for years."
