Last Friday at Berlin’s Tempodrom, the German cinema Lola awards were handed out before culture minister Monika Grütters and the academy president of German cinema, Iris Berben.

by cult director Edgar Reitz, a piece of work divided into two parts, which picks up on the plot of the famous mini-series by the “new German cinema” filmmakers, which takes place in a fictitious village named Schabbach, in the region of Hunsrück. This plot goes even further back in time, to the heart of the 19th century, a moment when the inhabitants of the village are divided among themselves between emigrating to the new world or staying put and putting foundations down for a new age at home, influenced by the Enlightenment and the French revolution.

), a story of vendetta starring British Sam Riley, which takes place in the Alps of the 19th century. This film, which was the occasion for a gala screening at the last Berlin Film Festival (read the review), was a great favourite at this year’s Lola edition (read the article): of the nine categories it was nominated in, The Dark Valley came top in eight, specifically winning the silver Lola for best film and a majority of the technical awards.
