The latest project of German independent shooting star Philipp Eichholtz, “Luca tanzt leise” (English direct translation: “Luca’s Silent Dance”, English title: “Dancing Quietly”) is one of the feature films taking part in this year’s competition for the ‘new berlin film award’. The movie is “a little love-letter to all those whose biggest struggle is to get up in the morning every day. For those who need all their energy to manage the small things in life”, says Philipp. Here is a short synopsis: After a dark period in her life, Luca (Martina Schöne-Radunski) decides to finally finish her A-levels. Her little dog Mata brings her joy and mental support during that difficult time. In order to pass her math exam, she sets up a deal with Kurt: they will help each other.
We wish Philipp the best of luck for the competition and look forward to taking this gem of German independent cinema to the movie theaters.
