Werner Herzog ('Grizzly Man', 'Rescue Dawn') confirms his standing as poet laureate of men in extreme situations with ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD. In this visually stunning exploration, Herzog travels to the Antarctic community of McMurdo Station, headquarters of the National Science Foundation and home to eleven hundred people during the austral summer (Oct-Feb). Over the course of his journey, Herzog examines human nature and Mother Nature, juxtaposing breathtaking locations with the profound, surreal, and sometimes absurd experiences of the marine biologists, physicists, plumbers, and truck drivers who choose to form a society as far away from society as one can get.

"I wanted to go to Antarctica after seeing underwater pictures of an otherwordly environment, that were taken by a friend of mine, an expert diver, who captured a frozen world unlike anything I had ever seen before. I accompanied a group of scientists and researchers headed for McMurdo Station in the massive Ross Sea.

I did not expect pristine landscapes and men living in blissful harmony with fluffy penguins, but I was still surprised to find McMurdo looking like and ugly mining town filled with caterpillars and noisy construction sites.

But McMurdo is filled with professional dreamers and wonderful stories"

    Miele narra la storia di Irene, una ragazza di trent'anni che ha deciso di aiutare le persone che soffrono: malati terminali che vogliono abbreviare l'agonia, persone le cui sofferenze intaccano la dignità di essere umano. Un giorno a richiedere il suo servizio è un settantenne in buona salute, che ritiene semplicemente di aver vissuto abbastanza. L'incontro metterà in discussione le convinzioni di Irene e la coinvolgerà in un dialogo serrato lungo il quale la relazione tra i due sembrerà infittirsi di sottintesi e ambiguità affettive.

    Er ist exzentrisch, genial, scharfzüngig – doch nicht unbesiegbar. Das muss Tony Stark alias Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) erkennen, als er sich einem Gegner gegenübersieht, der keine Grenzen kennt. Nachdem dieser ihm all das, was Stark am Herzen liegt, genommen hat, begibt sich der geschlagene Held auf die leidvolle Suche den zu finden, der dafür verantwortlich ist – eine Reise, die seinen Mut und seine Standhaftigkeit auf eine harte Probe stellen wird. Mit dem Rücken zur Wand kann sich Stark auf seiner Mission nur noch auf seine eigenen Instrumente, seinen Scharfsinn und seine Instinkte verlassen um jene zu schützen, die ihm am wichtigsten sind. Während er sich langsam wieder zu alter Form zurückkämpft, findet Stark die Antwort auf die Frage, die ihn insgeheim schon lange verfolgt: Macht der Mann den Anzug oder macht der Anzug den Mann?
