Several of this year’s festival highlights — including Matteo Garrone‘s Tale of Tales, Asif Kapadia‘s Amy Winehouse documentary Amy from Cannes, Rick Famuyiwa‘s Dope and Alex Gibney‘s Scientology expose Going Clear from Sundance — will be getting a second go-around at the Munich International Film Festival, which runs June 25-July 4.
David Oelhoffen‘s Far from Men, an Algerian period drama starring Viggo Mortensen that premiered in Venice last year, will open the 2015 Munich festival. Other highlights include Anders Thomas Jensen‘s Men & Chicken, a Danish comedy starring Mads Mikkelsen from TV’s Hannibal; and Julian Jarrold‘s A Royal Night Out, a romantic thriller set in 1945 starring Sarah Gadon, Bel Powley, Emily Watson and Rupert Everett, both of which will have their international premiere in Munich.
Among the German titles premiering in Munich this year, those generating the strongest buzz include Dietrich Bruggemann‘s Heil, a satire set in the modern-day neo-Nazi scene; and Boy 7 from director Ozgur Yildirim, an amnesia thriller starring David Kross (The Reader) as a man who wakes up in a tunnel with no idea who he is or why his life is in danger.
