01.-26.01.2017 Woody Allen Retrospective: 30 Filme im Babylon

 

Was Sie schon immer von Woody Allen sehen wollten

  Filme        Programm
  Alle Jahre wieder ein neuer Woody Allen Film – Dank dieser hohen Produktivität des Regiemeisters startet das Babylon ins neue Jahr mit der ersten umfassenden Woody Allen Retrospektive in Berlin und 30 Filmen aus 45 Jahren in der Originalversion bzw. in der untertitelten Fassung (1. bis 18. Januar).

„Es ist wie eine Sucht", erklärte die Filmikone in einem Spiegel-Interview 2014. „Es sind immer und immer wieder die gleichen Themen, die gleichen Fragen, die mich anziehen. Weil es auf diese Fragen aber auch keine Antworten gibt. … Es könnte natürlich auch sein, dass ich morgen die Stimme Gottes höre, der zu mir sagt: ‚Alles wird gut werden, Woody. Mach dir keine Sorgen.‘ Dann wäre das mit dem Sinn des Lebens geklärt, und ich müsste keine Filme mehr darüber machen."

2017 feiern wir den 125. Geburtstag des Berliner und Hollywood Regisseurs Ernst Lubitsch. Er war Berlins wichtigster Filmemacher und ein markanter Vertreter für den europäischen Einfluss auf Hollywood. Mit seinen intelligenten Beziehungskomödien brachte er Sex subtil auf die Kinoleinwand. Was haben Lubitsch und Allen gemeinsam? Woody Allen erklärt dies so: „I, personally, was a Lubitsch fan, because Lubitsch was cosmopolitan and sophisticated, and unsentimental to the end. … I am a paleface rather than a redskin. I like the European material very much. I respond to it.” (filmcomment.com, 2011). So ist die „Woody Allen Retrospective“ im Babylon ein würdiges Entrée für die am 26. Januar startende Retrospektive “How would Lubitsch do it?“ (Eröffnung mit der Tochter Nicola Lubitsch) und die Lubitsch-Preisverleihung am 29. Januar.

„Let’s misbehave“ könnte als ein Motto der Woody Allen Filme gelten. Diesen von Cole Porter geschriebenen Song setzte Woody Allen gleich zwei Mal ein: In „Was Sie schon immer über Sex wissen wollten“ und in „Bullets over Broadway“. Der Regisseur lässt seine Loser über die Absurditäten des Alltags und die kompliziertesten (Dreiecks-) Beziehungen stolpern, oft in einem Geflecht aus Rückblenden und Traumsequenzen.

Immer ist Sex ein zentrales, oftmals mit schonungslosem Humor verbundenes Thema: „Sag nichts gegen Masturbation! Das ist Sex mit jemanden, den ich liebe“, meint der „Stadtneurotiker“ Alvy Singer zu Annie Hall. In „Zelig“: „I worked with Freud in Vienna. We broke over the concept of penis envy. Freud felt that it should be limited to women.“ In „Was Sie schon immer über Sex wissen wollten“ explodiert Woody alias Fabrizio ein elektrischer Dildo. In „Vicky Cristina Barcelona“ würde sich Scarlett Johansson durch falsche Unterwäsche von ihrem Vergnügen mit Javier Bardem abbringen lassen.

Woody Allen ist eine Institution und steht für eine Ära mit inzwischen mehreren Generationen an Fans. Die Babylon Retrospektive ermöglicht ihnen eine große, vergnügliche Zeitreise durch fünf Jahrzehnte und zu sich selbst.

Babylon Geschäftsführer Timothy Grossman: „Es wird Zeit, dass es in Berlin eine große Woody Allen Retrospektive auf der Leinwand zu sehen gibt. Ausgehend von Ernst Lubitsch über Chaplin, Billy Wilder und Karl Valentin liegt mir das schwierigste Genre – die Komödie – vor allem am Herzen. Mit den Filmen von Woody Allen präsentieren wir eine Ära!“

FILME

  Café Society USA 2016, R: Woody Allen mit Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, 96 Min, OmU

Woody Allens bittersüße Romanze CAFÉ SOCIETY spielt in den 1930er-Jahren: Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) kommt aus der Bronx nach Hollywood, verliebt sich, kehrt nach New York zurück und schwelgt dort im glitzernden Nachtclub-Ambiente der High Society.

Die schillernde Existenz von Bobbys Bronx-Familie ist eine funkelnde Liebeserklärung an die Filmstars, Salonlöwen, Playboys, Debütantinnen, Politiker und Gangster, die das überbordende Lebensgefühl und den Glamour jener Ära verkörperten.

Bobbys Familie besteht aus den stets gnadenlos zerstrittenen Eltern Rose (Jeannie Berlin) und Marty (Ken Stott), seinem lässig amoralischen Gangster-Bruder Ben (Corey Stoll), seiner gutherzigen Lehrerin-Schwester Evelyn (Sari Lennick) und ihrem vergeistigten Mann Leonard (Stephen Kunken). Der auf Krawall gebürstete Ben löst jedes Problem mit Gewalt, während die übrigen sehr viel reflektierter mit den Problemen umgehen, indem sie über Recht und Unrecht, Leben und Tod und die kommerziellen Aspekte der Religion diskutieren.

Bobby wünscht sich jedoch mehr vom Leben und flieht aus dem Juweliergeschäft seines Vaters nach Hollywood, wo er für seinen Onkel, den mächtigen Agenten Phil (Steve Carell), arbeitet. Schnell verliebt er sich in Phils charmante Assistentin Vonnie (Kristen Stewart), die bereits einen Freund hat, sodass die beiden zunächst „nur“ gute Freunde werden.

Mit gebrochenem Herzen kehrt Bobby nach New York zurück und jobbt für Ben, der sich mit brachialen Mitteln einen Nachtclub unter den Nagel gerissen hat. Bobby beweist sein Naturtalent als Impresario und macht den Club unter dem neuen Namen „Les Tropiques“ im Handumdrehen zum angesagtesten Lokal der Stadt. Rad stellt ihm die schöne Salonlöwin Veronica (Blake Lively) vor, der er eifrig den Hof macht.

„Famos fabulierend, vergnüglich hakenschlagend erzählt, dazu wortwitzige Dialoge, wunderbare Bilder samt beschwingtem Jazz-Soundtrack – was will man von Woody mehr?“ (programmkino.de)

„In ‚Irrational Man‘ hat der Freizeit-Jazzer Woody Allen vertraute Motive noch einmal neu kompiliert und dabei auf all das zurückgegriffen, was sich seit Jahrzehnten in ihm kompostiert hat: Brocken der französischen Existenzphilosophie, Gedichte von Emily Dickinson und den Swing von Ramsey Lewis.“ (Der Spiegel)

Under the influence of a series of magical herbs from her Chinese healer Dr. Yang, Alice begins a remarkable journey of self discovery, a journey on which she comes face to face with her real needs, her desires, her limits and her gifts.

  Anything Else, USA, 2003, R: Woody Allen mit Woody Allen, Jason Biggs, Danny DeVito, Christina Ricci, 108 min, OmU

A young artist struggling with his career and his muse is getting more than a little aggravation from Cupid in this romantic comedy written and directed by Woody Allen. Jerry Falk (Jason Biggs) is a promising 21-year-old comedy writer living in New York City. While Jerry has talent, he's having a hard time getting his career off the ground, which might have something to do with the fact his agent Harvey (Danny DeVito) is a well-meaning, but ineffectual, blowhard, and his mentor David Dobel (Allen) is an increasingly paranoid eccentric whose twin careers as a teacher and standup comic are both floundering. Poised at the top of Jerry's mountain of anxieties is his relationship with his girlfriend Amanda (Christina Ricci); from the first moment he saw her, Jerry has been in love with her, but Amanda's multiple neuroses, fear of commitment, and frustrating intimacy issues make her all but impossible to be around.

   
   
  Bananas, USA, 1971, R Woody Allen mit Woody Allen, Louise Lasser, Carlos Montalban, Natividad Abascal, Jacobo Morales, Miguel Angel Suarez, Sylvester Stallone, 83 min, OF

One of Woody Allen's earlier, more slapstick-oriented efforts, Bananas tells the story of Fielding Mellish (Allen), a neurotic New Yorker who follows the object of his affections, Nancy (Louise Lasser), to the fictional Central American country of San Marcos, where she is involved in a revolution. Nancy wants nothing to do with Fielding, but he soon becomes a guest of the country's dictator (Carlos Montalban), before accidentally becoming the leader of San Marcos himself. Fielding is eventually shipped back to the US and tried as a subversive, but being that this is a comedy, and an especially light one at that, everything works out in the end. A far cry from Allen's later, more somber films, Bananas still works as an often hilarious amalgam of sight gags, one-liners, and bizarre asides.

  Crimes and Misdemeanors, USA, 1989, R: Woody Allen mit Woody Allen, Martin Landau, Alan Alda, Anjelica Huston, Mia Farrow, Jerry Orbach, Martin Bergmann, Joanna Gleason, 109 min, OF

Woody Allen spent most of the 1980s and '90s veering between comedy and drama, and he rarely combined the two with greater success than in CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS, in which he weaved together two stories, one deadly serious, one often funny, both ending in sadness. Dr. Judah Rosenthal is a prominent ophthalmologist with a successful practice, a loving family, and a reputation for generous charity work. But Rosenthal also has a secret: his mistress, Dolores. What began as a casual fling has become uncomfortably intimate, and as he tries to break off the relationship, Dolores threatens to expose his infidelity to his wife and some unorthodox financial arrangements to his colleagues. Fearful that Dolores will make good on her threats, Judah confesses his secret to his brother Jack, who has ties to organised crime and offers to "make the problem go away." Meanwhile, Cliff Stern is a filmmaker working on his pet project, a documentary about philosopher Prof. Louis Levy. However, films about philosophers don't pay the rent, so Cliff's wife Wendy arranges for him to make a documentary for public television about her brother Lester, a famous TV comedian whose vapidity is exceeded only by his arrogance. While Cliff tries to bite the bullet and finish the film, he finds himself falling in love with producer Halley Reed.
