59th Berlin Film Festival begins

The 59th Berlin International Film Festival began today with the World Premiere of Tom Tykwer’s “The International,” a high finance conspiracy thriller starring Clive Owen and Naomi Watts. Variety reported from the event,  noting that “while the film’s Naomi Watts was absent (having given birth to a baby boy in December), co-star Clive Owen generated plenty of glamour, remaining on the red carpet to greet fans for so long that fest director Dieter Kosslick quipped, ‘Clive broke George Clooney’s red-carpet record.’” The film is noted as “touching on the fest’s many themes—the financial crisis, globalization, terrorism, immigration and sinking food supplies—Kosslick joked, ‘We don’t have a film about the pope.’”
