Window Boy Would Also Like to Have a Submarine at Berlinale
Writer-director Piperno’s Window Boy Would Also Like To Have A Submarine has one of the most distinctive (and longest) titles of any film in Berlin this year.
It also has one of the more intriguing storylines: on board a cruise ship, a sailor discovers a hallway that leads into an apartment far away in Montevideo. New Dutch sales company Square Eyes picked up the film just before Berlin.
“Director Alex Piperno and I were actually introduced by Laurette Schillings from Topkapi Films,” says Baldr’s Frank Hoeve of the film which had Netherlands Film Fund and Hubert Bals Fund Co-production Scheme (NFF+HBF) support.
