EXCLUSIVE : Greenwich Entertainment has acquired North American distribution rights to well-received Holocaust documentary Love It Was Not , which will play at Hot Docs this month. Israeli filmmaker Maya Sarfaty’s film charts the remarkable and harrowing true love story between a prisoner and a Nazi. Beautiful and full of life, Helena Citron is taken to Auschwitz as a teenager (one of the first 1000 transported to the concentration camp), and soon finds unlikely solace under the protection of Franz Wunsch, a barely older SS officer who falls in love with her and her magnetic singing voice. Risking execution if caught, they went on with their forbidden romantic relationship for two and a half years until the war ended and the camp was liberated.

Actor Kabir Bedi has poured out his heart in his book Stories I Must Tell: The Emotional Journey of an Actor, which will be launched soon. Ahead of its launch, we will share with you an anecdote from his book, wherein he spoke about falling in love with actress Parveen Babi while in an open marriage with Protima Gupta. An excerpt from his book, published by a leading daily, read, "Our open marriage may have seemed like a good idea at first. In the end, it only caused me greater anxiety. It had led to a lack of intimacy between us. I didn't feel the love that I wanted, the caring and sharing I needed. Nor was I able to give it. The old magic had gone. I was feeling alone, empty and dejected." Sharing about how he fell in love with Parveen Babi, he wrote that she was the one who filled the void in his life. "She was a ravishingly beautiful actress with fair skin, long black hair and dark, mesmerising eyes. Until then, I'd always thought of her as 'the … [Read more...] about Kabir Bedi On How He Ended Marriage With Protima Gupta & Told Her About Dating Parveen Babi: I Said Gruffly

I n person, Tim Burton looks a bit like a sketch out of a Tim Burton movie. His hair is frizzled, his clothes are dark; he speaks in quiet but rushed tones, with a slightly manic gleam in his eyes. This description has undoubtedly been made before, but it’s worth repeating here, particularly since Burton’s new film, Big Eyes , looks so very un-Tim Burton-like. Gone are the macabre backdrops and characters, instead replaced with the bright, picturesque landscape of 1950s San Francisco. But underneath those pastels and shots of the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll find the same things that made Burton’s earlier worlds so memorable: isolation, sadness, and that fish-out-of-water, outside-looking-in mentality.

Don’t expect a camp bitchfest from Ed Wood, even if it is a biopic about a cross-dressing Hollywood filmmaker – he relishes fluffy Angora sweaters and strappy high heels – with an unrivaled reputation for making cut-rate crap. Director Tim Burton, a former Disney animator with a famous sympathy for freaks ( Batman, Beetlejuice, Pee-wee’s Big Adventure, Edward Scissorhands ), doesn’t do the expected. It’s a cherishable trait that he shares with Scissorhands star Johnny Depp , who wriggles into a skirt to play the auteur of such classic clinkers as Glen or Glenda, Jail Bait, Bride of the Monster and Plan 9 From Outer Space. The last, featuring paper plates as flying saucers, is widely regarded as the worst movie of all time. But it’s Glen or Glenda, an ode to transvestism in which Wood plays the dual title role, that began the march into turkey legend for the man in Angora. Wood is an easy target that this sympathetic and endearing movie bravely resists. Burton’s … [Read more...] about Ed Wood
