Michael Hoffmann's "Eden" picks up Rotterdam awards

Germany's writer/director Michael Hoffmann (photo, centre) came back from the Rotterdam International Film festival a happy man. His "Eden", a tale of unrequited love and a crime of passion based on "erotic cooking", picked up the Tiscali Audience Award and the Rotterdam Lion's Club award. Produced by Gambit and C-Film, "Eden" is Hoffmann's third feature after "The Beaches of Trouville" and "Sophiiie!".

The icing on the cake is that a Dutch distributor will be releasing "Eden" in the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg in addition to its German release. For more details, see the interview on the Rotterdam site (in English).
