Deep Water: an erotic thriller starring Ben Affleck

Los Angeles – British director Adrian Lyne’s films are mostly about risky affairs, eroticism and crime. After thrillers like “A Fateful Affair” and “An Indecent Proposal”, Lyne also falls back on the proven ingredients in “Deep Water”. For the erotic thriller based on a novel by crime author Patricia Highsmith, he brought Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas in front of the camera. You play wealthy New Orleans couple whose broken relationship is ruled by jealousy and distrust. The seductive Melinda makes no secret of her many love affairs. But then some of her admirers die and her husband comes under suspicion. (Deep Water, USA 2022, 153 min., by Adrian Lyne, with Ben Affleck, Ana de Armas, Tracy Letts)

“The Bunny School 2”: Easter egg rolling

Berlin (AP) – The city hare Max is happy: He has a good chance of becoming a master hare. But training is out of the question at Bunny School. The golden egg has turned black and the whole Easter festival is in danger. With his friends, the teacher Eitelfritz and the clever Madame Hermine, Max wants to prevent the worst from happening. But that’s difficult, because the gang of “mad bunnies” and the foxes are causing trouble. The animated film “Die Häschenschule 2 – Der Große Eierklau” is based on the book “Die Häschenschule” from 1924. Also present as Max is Noah Levi, who won “The Voice Kids” in 2015 and has since worked as a singer (“Was Helden do”) is on the way. Senta Berger speaks the rabbit lady Hermine, Friedrich von Thun lends his voice to the teacher.

“Petite Maman” – Unusual Encounter

Berlin (AP) – The director Céline Sciamma has known the audience at least since her critically acclaimed film “Portrait of a Young Woman in Flames” (2019). In her follow-up, “Petite Maman”, the Frenchwoman once again tells the story of an unusual encounter between women, in a gentle and often touching way. This time it’s about a fantastically inspired meeting of mother and daughter. After the death of her grandmother, eight-year-old Nelly (Joséphine Sanz) helps her parents clear out the old woman’s house. When Nelly’s mother Marion (Nina Meurisse) suddenly disappears, Nelly plays a lot alone in the forest. There she meets a girl (Gabrielle Sanz) who looks just like her. The two become friends and discover more and more things they have in common – until Nelly understands what’s going on. She has traveled back several decades and meets her own mother at a young age. (Petite Maman. When We Were Children, by Céline Sciamma, with Joséphine Sanz, Gabrielle Sanz, France 2021, 72 minutes)

“Three floors”: Nanni Moretti’s new film from Rome
