Der Goldene Bär für den besten Film geht an „Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn“ (Babardeală cu bucluc sau porno balamuc), von Radu Jude, produziert von Ada Solomon.
Die Begründung der Jury: “The Golden Bear goes to a film which has that rare and essential quality of a lasting art work. It captures on screen the very content and essence, the mind and body, the values and the raw flesh of our present moment in time. Of this very moment of human existence. It does so by provoking the spirit of our time (i.e., zeitgeist), by slapping it, by challenging it to a duel. And while doing that, it also challenges this present moment in cinema, shaking, with the same camera movement, our social and our cinematic conventions. It is an elaborated film as well as a wild one, clever and childish, geometrical and vibrant, imprecise in the best way. It attacks the spectator, evokes disagreement, but leaves no one with a safety distance.”
Zum Film: How pornographic can consensual sex be? Does it make a woman guilty? Especially if, as a teacher, she is supposed to be a role model for the young? These questions and more are explored in Radu Jude’s intelligent, innovative and uproarious social portrait.
