Wasser: Es fließt und strömt und plätschert und sprudelt. Es belebt und bringt Unheil. In Film und Musik genauso wie auf der Erde. Vom bedrohlichen Motiv für den berühmtesten weißen Hai der Filmgeschichte zu den verträumten Akkorden von ?Moon River? in FRÜHSTÜCK BEI TIFFANY: Das Wasser und seine Geheimnisse haben viele Filmkomponisten zu spannungsreicher und wunderschöner Musik angeregt. Egal, ob es um Abenteuer auf hoher See (TITANIC, MASTER & COMMANDER, FLUCH DER KARIBIK) oder tief unter der Wasseroberfläche (DAS BOOT, BLUE PLANET) geht oder ob Wasser als Symbol für Leben, Reinigung und Verwandlung steht (FANTASIA, MISSION) - dieses Konzertprogramm zieht Sie hinein in einen Strudel von Film-und-Wasser-Musik. Manfred Callsen wird in bewährter Weise durch den Abend führen. Moderator: Manfred Callsen Dirigent: MD Hannes Ferrand
A stirring and remarkable story, this novel tells the tale of the intertwined lives of Dick Williams and Karl Behr who survived the sinking of the Titanic and went on to have Hall of Fame tennis careers. Two years before they faced each other in the quarterfinals of the U.S. Nationals - the modern-day U.S. Open - the two men boarded the infamous ship as strangers. Dick, shy and gangly, was moving to America to pursue a tennis career and attend Harvard. Karl, a dashing tennis veteran, was chasing after Helen, the love of his life. The two men remarkably survived the sinking of the great vessel and met aboard the rescue ship Carpathia. But as they reached the shores of the United States, both men did all they could to distance themselves from the disaster. An emotional and touching work, this novel brings one of the most extraordinary sports stories to life in literary form. This real-life account - with an ending seemingly plucked out of a Hollywood screenplay - weaves the themes of love, tragedy, history, sport and perseverance. 1. Language: English.

From New York Times best-selling author Karen Harper comes a novel based on the lives of two amazing sisters... One sailed the Titanic and started a fashion empire.... The other overtook Hollywood and scandalized the world.... Together, they were unstoppable. They rose from genteel poverty, two beautiful sisters, ambitious, witty, seductive. Elinor and Lucy Sutherland are at once each other´s fiercest supporters and most vicious critics. Lucy transformed herself into Lucile, the daring fashion designer who revolutionized the industry with her flirtatious gowns and brazen self-promotion. And when she married Sir Cosmo Duff-Gordon her life seemed to be a fairytale. But success came at many costs - to her marriage and to her children...and then came the fateful night of April 14, 1912 and the scandal that followed. Elinor´s novels titillate readers, and it´s even asked in polite drawing rooms if you would like to ´´sin with Elinor Glyn´´. Her work pushes the boundaries of what´s acceptable; her foray into the glittering new world of Hollywood turns her into a world-wide phenomenon. But although she writes of passion, the true love she longs for eludes her. But despite quarrels and misunderstandings, distance and destiny, there is no bond stronger than that of the two sisters - confidants, friends, rivals and the two ´´it girls´´ of their day. 1.

”I´m the king of the world!” That was the cry from Leonardo DiCaprio as he stood astride the bow in Titanic - the movie that would go on to smash all records, raking in a whopping GBP 1.1 billion worldwide. Now, few Hollywood movers and shakers would dispute that statement as Leo has rocketed to become the highest paid actor in the world, earning an estimated GBP 50 million in 2011 alone. And his position looks sets to be secure for some time to come as the release of the new 3D version of James Cameron´s epic heralds another sensational year in the life of Hollywood´s hottest talent, that will also see him take on the lead role in a new adaptation of The Great Gatsby and see him cast as a villain in Quentin Tarantino´s new blockbuster Django Unchained. It´s a far cry from the heart-throb´s humble beginnings when he had to scrape for parts in TV commericals and soap operas before catching the eye in Baz Luhrmann´s stylish Romeo and Juliet and then achieving worldwide superstardom with Titanic. Cementing his reputation with captivating performances in films like Catch Me If You Can and The Departed, DiCaprio won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in The Aviator. A keen environmentalist and conservationist, he has given millions to good causes around the globe and has never been shy about wearing his political ideas on his sleeve. Yet, although he´s spent over 15 years at the top of his profession, Leonardo remains something of an enigma. He has famously dated some of the world´s most beautiful women but seems no nearer to settling down and his often daring movie choices suggest someone still striving for perfection despite his stunning successes. 1.

Genies pendeln immer zwischen Niederlage, Triumph und Wahnsinn. Das galt besonders für Howard Hughes, eine der schillerndsten Gestalten des 20. Jahrhunderts: Er schrieb Schlagzeilen als größenwahnsinniger Flugzeugbauer, exzentrischer Regisseur und legendärer Frauenheld, der Affären mit einigen der schönsten Frauen Hollywoods hatte. Das gilt nicht weniger für Regisseur Martin Scorsese, auf dessen Konto Kinomythen wie Taxi Driver oder GoodFellas gehen. Den Star aus seinem letzten Film, Gangs of New York, holte er jetzt wieder vor seine Kamera, und es zeigt sich einmal mehr: DiCaprio und Scorsese sind ein unschlagbares Team. DiCaprio ist Howard Hughes mit Haut und Haaren, und Aviator einer der glanzvollsten Höhepunkte in der Karriere seines Regisseurs. Von der ersten Sekunde an betört er mit ausgeklügelten, atemberaubend aufwändigen Bildkompositionen (Kamera: Robert Richardson). Und er entfesselt eine Dynamik, die den Zuschauer bis zur letzten Sekunde in Atem hält. So gelingt seinem Film (nach einem Drehbuch von Gladiator-Autor John Logan) das eigentlich Unmögliche: aus einem überwältigenden Leben ein überwältigendes Stück Kino zu machen. Explosive Flugszenen, erotische Skandale, politische Intrigen - es kracht an allen Enden, und doch verbindet Aviator elegant viele Elemente, die allein schon für einen Film reichen würden. So wird das Biopic zum Aufregendsten, das Hollywood seit langem zu bieten hat. In seinem Zentrum lotet Leonardo DiCaprio die Grenzen von Genie und Wahnsinn aus und lässt sein Titanic-Image weit hinter sich. Dass Scorsese ihn mit einem Reigen prominenter Kollegen umgibt, von Cate Blanchett bis Jude Law, sorgt für die letzte besondere Note. So konnte Aviator 3 Golden Globes und sogar 5 Oscars einheimsen.

She´s my cherry pie. Tastes so good, make a grown man cry. Who could forget the sexy ´´Cherry Pie´´ girl from hair metal band Warrant´s infamous music video? Bobbie Brown became a bona fide vixen for her playful role as the object of lead singer Jani Lane´s desires. With her windblown peroxide mane, seductive scarlet lips, and flirtatious curves, she epitomized every man´s fantasy. But the wide-eyed Louisiana beauty queen´s own dreams of making it big in Los Angeles were about to be derailed by her rock-and-roll lifestyle. Ever wonder what it´s like to f*** a rock star? After her tumultuous marriage to Jani imploded, and her engagement to fast-living Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee ended in a drug haze - followed by his marriage days later to Pamela Anderson - Bobbie decided it was time Hollywood´s hottest bachelors got a taste of their own medicine. Step one: get high. Step two: get even. In a captivating, completely uncensored confessional, Bobbie explicitly recounts her encounters with some of the most famous men in Hollywood: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kevin Costner, Mark McGrath, Dave Navarro, Sebastian Bach, Ashley Hamilton, Rob Pilatus of Milli Vanilli, Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, Orgy´s Jay Gordon, and many more. Who´s got the most titanic dick in Tinseltown? Whose bedroom did Bobbie (literally) set on fire? No man was off limits as the fun-loving bombshell spiraled into excess, anger, and addiction. Bobbie survived the party - barely - and her riveting, cautionary comeback tale is filled with the wildest stories of sex, drugs, and rock and roll ever told. 1. Language: English.
