David Seidler, Universum Film, 2011, Film, EAN 0886978718099 Audioko..., FSK: 6, Deutsch DVD Eine Geschichte über die außergewöhnliche Freundschaft zwischen dem exzentrischen Sprachtherapeuten Lionel Logue und seinem adligen Patienten Bertie, der unter einem schweren Stottern leidet und unfreiwillig 1936 zum neuen König von England gekrönt wird. Als der Krieg ausbricht, muss der König sich in einer Radioansprache an sein Volk richten. Bewegendes und pointiertes Drama über King George VI, der sich an einen australischen Sprachtherapeuten wendet, um vor einer wichtigen Rede Herr über sein unkontrollierbares Stottern zu werden. George VI (1895 - 1952) war kein großer König, die Nachwelt kennt ihn vor allem als Vater von Queen Elizabeth II., aber nicht wegen großer Leistungen während seiner Regentschaft: Unter seiner Regentschaft zerfiel das Britische Empire zusehends und wurde durch das Commonwealth ersetzt. Tom Hooper ("The Damned United"), im Umgang mit den Royals erfahren dank der Miniserie "Elizabeth I", setzt ihm dennoch ein filmisches Denkmal, das es in sich hat. Nicht zuletzt weil der Mensch im Vordergrund steht, nicht aber der Regent, wenngleich die Blaublütigkeit des vormaligen Prinz Albert Frederick Arthur George die Triebfeder für die vielen Konflikte ist, die der Film auf pfiffige, unterhaltsame und bewegende Weise aufarbeitet. Am Anfang steht die Erniedrigung. King George V, ein Monarch und Patriarch von altem Schrot und Korn, schickt seinen zweiten Sohn zu einer unangenehmen Aufgabe: Zur Eröffnung der British Empire Expedition soll er 1925 vor versammelter Menge eine Rede halten. Sein krankhaftes Stottern lässt den Auftritt zum Desaster für den schüchternen Royal werden. Seine Frau Elizabeth, wunderbar unschrullig gespielt von Helena Bonham Carter, sucht einen Sprachtherapeuten, der ungefähr das exakte Gegenteil seines künftigen Patienten ist: Lionel Logue ist Australier, gescheiterter Shakespeare-Darsteller mit einem Hang zum extrovertierten Auftritt und frei von Respekt vor großen Tieren. Er nennt den Prinzen zu dessen Verärgerung "Bertie" und springt in den heruntergekommenen vier Wänden seiner Kellerpraxis auch sonst nicht zimperlich um mit dem reservierten Mann, was zunächst zum Zerwürfnis führt. Als jedoch Alberts Vater stirbt und sein leichtlebiger Bruder Edward VIII nach nur einem Jahr abdankt, um eine Amerikanerin zu heiraten, wird er zu King George VI gekrönt und steht wieder Erwarten in der Öffentlichkeit. Weil Logues unorthodoxe Methoden verblüffende Wirkung zeitigen, wendet sich der König wieder dem Australier zu, zumal es gilt, das Volk mit einer entscheidenden Rede auf den Krieg gegen Hitler-Deutschland einzustimmen. Es gibt weitere Haken und Ösen, Wendungen und Überraschungen, die die aufkeimende Freundschaft zwischen den ungleichen Männern stärken, aber auch wiederholt auf eine harte Probe stellen. Nur an der Oberfläche bewegt sich "The King's Speech" auf dem hüftsteifen Terrain von Merchant-Ivory. Tatsächlich ist Tom Hooper nicht im Entferntesten an einem Kostümdrama über Zeiten und Sitten gelegen. Der historische Rahmen, die wohlfeilen Kostüme und hochgestochenen Redensarten sind nur Verpackung für einen Film über menschliche Nöte und eine ungewöhnliche, aber stets nachvollziehbare Freundschaft, aber auch über die zunehmende Bedeutung von öffentlicher Wahrnehmung: Wie ein Menetekel hängt in der ...

In the docks of Jimmy McGovern's BAFTA Award winning second series of Accused stands a sensational ensemble of British acting talent. They are the innocent, the guilty and the somewhere in between. Starring Olivia Colman (Broadchurch), Sean Bean (Game of Thrones), Sheridan Smith (Mrs Biggs), Anne Marie Duff (Parade's End), Anna Maxwell Martin (The Bletchley Circle) and Stephen Graham (Boardwalk Empire), Accused Series 2 is directed by David Blair (The Street, Accused) and Ashley Pearce (Downton Abbey). These modern-day morality plays are fraught with emotion as they delve into the tangled issues of gender stereotypes, a mother's unconditional love, familial grief and paranoia, as well as challenging the justice system itself. With cases of gang violence, murder, sexual assault and crimes of passion, are these everyday defendants the guilty or the victims?

Time Bandits - Steelbook Edition
29,99 € *
zzgl. 1,49 € Versand

The film that established Terry Gilliam as more than just Monty Python’s resident animator, this delightfully inventive children’s fantasy is about young Kevin (Craig Warnock) who finds himself travelling through holes in the space-time continuum in the company of half a dozen fractious dwarfs. Along the way, he encounters Agamemnon (Sean Connery), Robin Hood (John Cleese), Napoleon (Ian Holm) and winds up as a passenger on the Titanic, although not necessarily in that order. But is this just random entertainment laid on for history fan Kevin’s benefit, or part of a wider struggle between the forces of good (Ralph Richardson) and evil (David Warner)? At the time, this was a rare example of a small-budget British film successfully taking on American blockbusters. Now, it's a much-loved fantasy classic bursting with inspired images and ideas: Gilliam and co-writer Michael Palin (who also appears) are clearly enjoying themselves as much as their audience.
