Berlinale Movies I'd Love to See

It was quite a daunting task to go through the list of movies as there are over 300 of them. But I wanted to go through each one of their description, trying to make sure I wouldn’t miss anything I’d love to see.

This year I wanted to see uplifting movies, something that would inspire me or take me to a world of imagination. So it wasn’t very surprising that most of the movies I end up putting on my list were from the Generation section, which was more geared towards younger movie goers.

Here is my list, in no particular order:

  • Knerten (Twigson). From the synopsis: “Strong? Yes. Brave? Yes. A twig? Yes. Ordinary? No! Because twigs like Twigson donโ€™t grow on trees.Twigs like Twigson exists in fantasies and play with you in the woods when you find it hard to be with everyone else.” I’m sold.
  • How Much Does Your Building Weigh, Mr. Foster?. I’m somehow always fascinated towards architecture. I love looking at buildings, imagining what was in the mind of the architect when they came up with the idea. Norman Foster designed the dome of Reichstag in Berlin. I would love to know him and his work better.
  • En ganske snill mann (A Somewhat Gentle Man). It’s hard to say exactly why I’d love to see this one. But I guess I like the black comedy, and the contrast of an ex con trying to be a good person.
  • My Name Is Khan. This one has quite a buzz already. I know Shah Rukh Khan (the leading actor) from his Bollywood movies, so I guess I’m interested to see him on the screen playing someone with an Asperger syndrome.

I also wanted to see the short films section since it would be quite hard to see them in cinemas otherwise. Will update this section soon!
