The Two Faces of January

While we keep hearing about developing films being sold at Berlin, there are plenty of films also playing at the Berlin Film Festival. One such film is The Two Faces of January, the directorial debut of 47 Ronin and and Drive scribe Hossein Amini. The film follows a con artist (Viggo Mortensen), his wife Colette (Kirsten Dunst), and a stranger named Rydal (Oscar Isaac), who try to flee Greece after one of them is caught up in the murder of a police officer. Meanwhile, Rydal becomes increasingly obsessed with Colette, giving rise to Chester’s jealousy and paranoia, leading to a tense and dangerous battle of wits. Watch below!

Here's the first trailer for Hossein Amini's The Two Faces of January from Empire:

In 1962, the charismatic Chester MacFarland (Viggo Mortensen) and his alluring younger wife Colette (Kirsten Dunst), arrive in Athens by boat via the Corinthian Canal. While sightseeing at the Acropolis they encounter Rydal (Oscar Isaac), a young, Greek-speaking American who is working as a tour guide, scamming tourists on the side. Drawn to Colette’s beauty and impressed by Chester’s wealth and sophistication, Rydal gladly accepts their invitation to dinner. However, all is not as it seems with the MacFarlands and Chester’s affable exterior hides darker secrets. The Two Faces of January is written and directed by Hossein Amini (Drive, 47 Ronin) and is playing in Berlin, but doesn't have US distribution yet.
