The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back. In a reboot, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo and Donatello take on dangerous mutants. While the Ninja Turtles take action against mutants, a love story fights against all conventions in “Young at Heart”.

“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem”

At the end of the 1980s, the cartoon series “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” based on a comic triggered a worldwide hype that also spread to Germany from 1990. Since then, several feature films and three more animated series about the four turtles with martial arts training have followed.

One of her most prominent fans is US actor and screenwriter Seth Rogen, who co-wrote the latest feature film. In the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem reboot, Michelangelo, Raphael, Leonardo and Donatello take on the mutant Superfly and his gang to protect the people they’ve always been hiding from.

The original animated film by director Jeff Rowe cleverly and wittily deals with the problems of teenagers. This is probably even more entertaining for adults than it is for kids, although the German version may lose a lot of the humor of the star-studded original, which features Jackie Chan, Ice Cube and other stars.


Relationship drama with Fanny Ardant

“Young at Heart” is the passionate story between an older woman and a much younger man. Director Carine Tardieu brought Fanny Ardant in front of the camera – and made a moving film without clich├ęs. Shauna (Ardant) and Pierre (Melvil Poupaud) first met in Lyon in 2006.

Pierre is a doctor and was treating Shauna’s best friend who was suffering from cancer. About 15 years later, their paths crossed again. The director is particularly interested in the contrast between a budding love and time that is passing by inexorably.
