GERMANY: What We Did On Our Holiday Screened at Film-Messe Köln 2014



What We Did On Our Holiday, the new feature film from BBC Films, will be screened at Film-Messe Köln (Cologne Film Fair) next month. The bittersweet comedy starring David Tennant, Rosamund Pike and Billy Connolly will be displayed by German film distributors Tobis.


Film-Messe Köln (5th - 7th August at Cinedom Köln) is a trade show where major German distributors exhibit trailers and exclusive material from their catalogues and have the opportunity to screen whole films to potential buyers from cinema chains. What We Did On Our Holiday will be screened on Thursday 7th August by Tobis, who picked up the rights to distribute the movie in German speaking Europe at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year.


Ein Schotte macht noch keinen Sommer
Inhalt:        
Zusammen mit ihren drei quirligen Kids fahren Doug und Abi in die schottischen Highlands, um den Geburtstag von Dougs Vater Gordy zu feiern. Das Problem dabei: Doug und Abi leben seit einer Weile getrennt, haben es aber bislang nicht fertig gebracht, den Rest des Clans darüber zu informieren. Um allen den großen Tag nicht zu verderben, wollen sie sich deshalb noch einmal als heile Familie präsentieren, machen dabei aber die Rechnung ohne ihre drei redseligen Sprösslinge - und ohne den Scharfsinn des eigenwilligen Großvaters, der nicht im Traum daran denkt, sich an irgendwelche Regeln zu halten ... Das gemeinsame Kinodebüt der britischen Comedy-Spezialisten Andy Hamilton und Guy Jenkin (Outnumbered) ist eine temporeiche und nie vorhersehbare Komödie mit jeder Menge rabenschwarzem britischen Humor, leichthändig inszeniert und zugleich auch sehr feinfühlig und bewegend.

Regie: Andy Hamilton & Guy Jenkin
Darsteller: David Tennant, Rosamund Pike und Billy Connolly

What We Did On Our Holiday
(One Scot does not make a summer)
Summary
Together with their three lively kids Doug and Abi travel to the Scottish Highlands to celebrate the birthday of Doug's father, Gordy. The problem is that Doug and Abi have been living separately for a while, but have not yet managed to inform the rest of the clan about it. In order not to spoil the big day, they want to present themselves as a complete family, but they reckoned without their three loquacious offspring - and nor did they take into account their idiosyncratic grandfather, who lives in a dream world, and does not abide by any rules... The feature film debut of British comedy writing team Andy Hamilton and Guy Jenkin (Outnumbered) is a fast-paced and never predictable comedy with lots of black British humour, lightly directed and at the same time very sensitive and moving.

Directed by: Andy Hamilton & Guy Jenkin
Starring: David Tennant, Rosamund Pike and Billy Connolly
