Madonna movie to premiere in Berlin

Posted by jahanzaibmemon on January 1, 2008

The first film directed by pop icon Madonna is to have its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival from February 7-17, organisers announced today.

Filth And Wisdom, a romantic musical comedy reportedly based on the star’s own experiences, is Britain’s entry in the festival’s Panorama section, but will not be in line for an award in the main competition.

It is not clear if Madonna, 49, will put in an appearance in Berlin, but directors usually show up for the premieres of their movies.

The lead role is played by Eugene Huetz, whose Gypsy punk band Gogol Bordello accompanied Madonna during a concert in London this year. Other actors include Stephen Graham and Richard E. Grant.

Madonna, who is married to British director Guy Ritchie, does not appear in the film. Her last major role was in the musical Evita.

Around 50 works are entered in the Berlinale’s Panorama section, among them efforts by Canadian underground star Bruce LaBruce and Taiwanese female director Zero Chou.
