Eine Familie muss von jetzt auf gleich ihr bisheriges Leben aufgeben—den gewohnten Lebensraum, die Freunde, die weiteren Verwandten, die Biographie jedes Familienmitglieds, die Namen. Familie Dreher heißt nun Schmidt—und wird „verpflanzt“ aus Hamburg nach Südtirol. Der Grund: Simon Dreher, ein Banker, der es nicht bis ins Management geschafft hat, musste auf illegale Weise den hohen Lebensstandard seiner Familie sichern, indem er sich für einen russischen Schwerstkriminellen in Geldwäschegeschäfte verwickeln ließ. Das LKA ist gut informiert und doch auf Dreher als Kronzeugen angewiesen, da ein anderer Belastungszeuge mitsamt Personenschutz in die Luft gesprengt wurde. Obwohl es in Drehers Ehe kriselt und die Tochter der Familie demnächst heiraten will, sind alle zunächst bereit, den schwierigen Weg mitzugehen. Ausgerechnet der aber, der seine Liebsten in diese missliche Lage gebracht hat, scheint nicht hundertprozentig zu kooperieren. Anfangs lehnt er das Zeugenschutzprogramm ab; erst nachdem er angeschossen wurde, nimmt er die Hilfe des Staates an. Doch Simon Dreher taktiert, „liefert“ kaum etwas Prozessdienliches.

Based on actual events about an abandoned boy and filmed on natural sets and colorful outdoors

Glimmer and stunning adaptation based on real facts about Marcos Rodriguez Pantoja, a lost little boy (Manuel Camacho who was Goya-nominated for best new actor) against wildlife and the dangerous forest. The movie narrates how a seven-years-old boy named Marcos is sent by his parents (Luisa Martin) to live with an old shepherd (excellent Sancho Gracia, as usual). Marcos is attacked by a wolf but later befriends him. Along the way Marcos encounters a variety of forest animals, including a complete menagerie of vultures, deers, boars and wolves. However his shepherd preceptor dies, and he remains solitary and abandoned to civilization, but the little boy survives and faces down lots of risks, dangers and adventures. There he lived for twelve years since 1953 to 1965. His only friends were a ferret and the wolves. Meanwhile, a bounty hunter named Ceferino (Carlos Bardem, Javier Bardem's brother) sets off in pursuit a bandit (Alex Brendemul) who is helped by Marcos (a 20-years-old played by Juan Jose Ballesta who has a secondary intervention on the half-hour final), being also chased by a Guardia Civil sergeant (Antonio Dechent).

The story focuses on the fight of a kid against the natural environment. In the picture there are drama, action, thrills and riveting landscapes dealing with a valiant boy fighting enemies and wildlife . Fascinating outdoors shot in Sierra Morena , Natural Park of Sierra of Cardeña y Montoro . The highlights of the movie are the wolf pack attacks in ¨Felix Rodriguez De La Fuente¨ style and the survival fight of the young boy . Interpretation of actors is top notch , but especially the veteran Sancho Gracia is frankly well . The supporting cast is formed by important secondaries as a gorgeous Dafne Fernandez , Eduardo Gomez , Luis Martin , and the singer Jose Manuel Soto as the Señorito ; all of them in brief roles . Cinematography by Oscar Duran is awesome , like are reflected on the glimmer and breathtaking scenarios . Sensational musical score with emotive leitmotif by Klaus Badelt who has composed soundtracks for super-productions as Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean. The picture is well directed by Gerardo Olivares who is an expert filming documentaries. It will appeal to natural sets enthusiasts.

Their legal battles exposed the highest levels of government in both London and Washington with having manipulated intelligence in order to sell an illegal war.

Princess Amelia is first in line to the throne of Bundbury; that ascension is to come sooner than later because her widowed mother, Queen Ava, has already revealed her intention to imminently abdicate. Amelia accepts her responsibility, but she has not much liked her lack of freedom over the course of her life: she craves to experience some of it without those strict royal protocols. That experience extends to romance: she would prefer a matrimonial match based on love rather than royal arrangement, and feels that this can only happen in that freedom of experiencing life. In that vein, she wants at least to discover if a connection she made with Chicago-based artist Wes Riverton, who was commissioned to paint her portrait, could be love; the weeks of portrait sittings which only gave each the idea that they are attracted to each other and want to continue to see each other, something that the protective Queen, if she knew, would probably not allow.

Under the guise of celebrating her maternal Uncle Andreas' birthday in his Beverly Hills home base (he's the Bundbury emissary to the U.S), Amelia plans to escape the watchful eyes not only of her mother and her uncle while in Los Angeles, but also Grady Beck, the bodyguard her uncle assigns to her, to travel to Chicago to reunite with Wes. While she knows that her secretary Camille is on her side, Amelia is surprised to learn that her uncle is a romantic at heart and allows her to go, unknown to the Queen, with an initially-reluctant Grady assigned as her bodyguard/escort/driver. The road trip may provide the Princess the freedom she wants, while showing her a different part of life she was expecting with Grady as her guide.

She is renowned for being the best not only for her knowledge of cooking and cuisines, but her attention to details, especially authenticity.

Much to her chagrin, as her much desired promotion to partner rests on its success, her boss Marty assigns her to work on the next cookbook of television chef Will Fryer, someone generally outside of the company's stable of authors, he more a celebrity hack than real chef. Not trained, Will, a widowed father to adolescent David, got into the business of cooking solely to get quick and easy meals on the table that David would eat by taking shortcuts of canned and prepared ingredients. While Will's fans love him and his successful cookbooks, those in the culinary business, including Becky's latest boyfriend, food critic Robert Flannigan, think the food is neither good nor healthy.

While Becky and Will have the same goal of elevating this next cookbook, they butt heads in having different ideas of what that actually means within their well-defined brands. Also making it difficult is that Will has decided to make this book on southwest cooking, having spent some time in New Mexico as a child. Becky, whose family is also from there, would also focus on that cuisine, if she ever opened her dream restaurant. As Becky and Will try to bridge the gap between them, they may discover something missing in their lives in losing track of personal goals.

Lindsey Johnson has long worked as a manager in the property-acquisition section of Manhattan-headquartered Krispen Group, a chain of upscale modern resort hotels. It is in her ability to close the deal that company CEO Drake Krispen reassigns her from a near completed Paris acquisition to the starting negotiations in a potentially more problematic one in the small coastal town of Kilabbey, Ireland. The problem with the property is that a castle sits on it which Krispen would tear down to replace with a modern building, whereas the Town Council, which owns the castle, has been known to be reluctant to sell to anyone who would not maintain it.

Lindsey, who has some Irish blood, is making her initial visit to meet with Council coinciding with the town's historic annual Matchmaking Festival. In meeting with Council, she discovers their reluctance to sell to someone like Krispen, the lead Council member, Alroy, who advises her to learn more about Kilabbey and its environs before ever approaching them again. Purely as a high profile move to show Council that she is listening to them, Lindsey reluctantly stays for the Matchmaking Festival just because she knows most of the Council members are highly-involved in its operation.

While most Council members welcome Lindsey's involvement despite knowing her ulterior motive so having no intention of finding a match, one, Brennan O'Brien, doesn't. He's arguably the most protective of the castle, taking any opportunity to sabotage her involvement. While some developments complicate matters, two of the more important are: that Lindsey has no idea that Council has never had the money to maintain the property, so would be more than willing to sell; and that Lindsey and Brennan start to fall for each other. Lindsey wants to close the deal and does not want to hurt Brennan.
