Berlinale 2024: Gael García Bernal & Renate Reinsve Star in ‘Another End’ Trailer

As the Berlin Film Festival gears up for its weekend events, the spotlight turns to “Another End,” a fantasy drama vying for the Golden Bear, featuring Gael García Bernal, Renate Reinsve, and Bérénice Bejo. Directed by Italian filmmaker Piero Messina, this film marks a significant entry into the festival’s competition lineup.

Deadline has exclusively released the trailer on the eve of its world premiere, offering audiences a first glimpse into the film’s intriguing premise. Set in a near future where advanced technology enables people to bring back deceased loved ones in different bodies for a final farewell, the story delves into themes of loss, grief, and the human desire for closure.

Gael García Bernal portrays a man grappling with the loss of the love of his life. Encouraged by his sister, played by Bérénice Bejo, he engages with this revolutionary technology, hoping to find solace. His journey takes a complex turn when he reconnects with his late lover, embodied by another woman (Renate Reinsve), challenging his notions of love and loss.

“Another End” is Piero Messina’s ambitious follow-up to his debut feature, “The Wait,” which starred Juliette Binoche and premiered at the Venice Film Festival in 2015. The film’s production boasts collaboration with notable companies including Indigo Film, RAI Cinema, TF1 Studio, Anton, and in partnership with Number 9 Films. Newen Connect has taken on the role of managing international sales, signaling strong global interest in the film’s unique narrative and visual appeal.
