The German provinces according to Rosenmüller
As of today, German audiences will have the chance to discover the latest film by one of Germany's most prolific young directors, Marcus H. Rosenmüller.
Following the success of his previous films Grave Decisions [+see also:

film profile] (2006) and Good Times (2007), which recounted the aspirations of two young Bavarians and garnered over 250,000 admissions, the filmmaker's latest offering, Beste Gegend [+see also:
film profile], is the follow-up to his previous film and is the second part of his "Heimat trilogy" about his country.
The title is produced by Hamburg-based Monaco Film, shot near Dachau, Austria and in the Tirol region, and distributed by Constantin.
The film stars Anna Maria Sturm and Rosalie Thomass as two women who plan a trip that does not enable them to escape from their region and their families as they had expected.
Other titles hitting German screens today include the documentary Comrades in Dreams by Uli Gaulke (distributed by Flying Moon); animated film Kleiner Dodo (distributed by Warner); UK title The Magic Flute [+see also:
