Berlin by night

Jake takes the official Berlinale Juror Oath of Office

The stars come out at night for the actual movies at the Berlin Film Festival. The party kicked off with the premiere of Farewell, My Queen (Les adieux a la reine). Here's a short clip of Jake at the opening ceremony:


More photos from the red carpet and of the jury on stage:

From earlier in the day, a few moments at the press conference, including Jake and Charlotte and the water bottle:

More from the press conference, but there's also a few seconds of Jake, Anton and the rest walking yesterday:

Glad I came back and discovered that you've posted more w beautiful wonderful pics of Jake. TY UV!!
I just watched a Joe Namath documentary on
HBO, and still can't believe, how much he looks like Jake, especially his eyes.

Jake Gyllenhaal poco prima del film senegalese delle 9 del mattino. È stato bravo. Più di me. Non ha dormito #berlinale

Office of Nancy Pelosi said...

Charlotte is very beautiful and tall! Jake looks suave and sexy. Looking forward to the continuing coverage here!

I saw that documentary on Namath too Sass, and I wondered if the bio Jake was attached to has been shelved since we never heard anything more about it.

Jake Gyllenhaal at 9 O'Clock this morning just before the Senegalese film. He was good, better than me. He did not sleep.

Mary said...

Monica said...

So, Jake Gyllenhaal and Charlotte Gainsbourg were sat right behind me in first screening of the day #ingoodcompany #berlinale jury

Portrait: Jake

UltraViolet said...

Solis, good luck! Let us know if you have any luck. We'll have our fingers crossed for you.

I'm glad Jake didn't fall asleep at the movie! LOL at the tweeter who did.

I forgot to say to Daniela yesterday that I liked your description that even the fool couldn't dim Jake's star :)

I was waiting for that picture, Monica. I looked at the past portraits yesterday. He looks good.

UltraViolet said...

A few seconds of background Jake here at about 1:34.

Did someone post a link to the red carpet/opening ceremonies video? I can't remember. I think it's at the official site, but I'm losing track!

UltraViolet said...

Again, I can't remember if this whole video was posted or not - some shots of Jake signing autographs on the red carpet last night.

Daniela said...

I'm here watching various videos of the festival, I was afraid to just take those pictures from yesterday lol
What would we do without this gyllenhaalics festival!!

bobbyanna said...

Isn't Charlotte Gainsbourg supposed to be performing tonight?

I think I'll be getting a D- in
"research" for Berlinale! Twitter is not my friend.

I re-watched the red carpet from last night's opening, and Jake is in it intermittently from about the :49 minute mark when he arrives and the crowd kind of goes crazy for him, until the 1 hour mark when Diane Kruger et al, arrive. Around the 1:18 mark, the cameras pan the gallery of photos and his portrait is very prominent. He seems to be having a good time with his fellow jurors.

he looks so classy in that black wool coat yummy


Monica said...

UV, I sent you a message.

Extra said...

He does doesn't he Lily? I love this look on him:)

And i'm thrilled with the response he is getting there.

Finally got to watch the video and love his portrait, thanks!!

Good luck Solis!

Stuff I found: Juror Anton Corbijn is Dutch, and known almost more for the music videos he's directed, as for his movies.

He's worked with U2 a lot, and recently collaborated with Coldplay on a video project. The one feature length movie I'm familiar with, is "The American" with George Clooney.

He also directed Control, about the life of Ian Curtis, lead singer of Joy Division who committed suicide at the age of 23.

I wonder if Jake will be tomorrow at the premiere of Angelina Jolie movie.

From Twitter!:

"so Jake Gyllenhaal was definitely at Das Hotel bar tonight. best day of my life."
1 hr. ago

Here's a link to a description. They have a blog, and dancing there too.

UltraViolet said...

Just saw that, too, Bobbyanna. Twitter hasn't been too hopping. I wonder if Twitter is not big in Berlin.

Anton Corbijn took the famous Joshua Tree photos of U2, among many. And he directed the video for One, where they all appear in drag. He was also a photographer of Depeche Mode.

You can watch both the red carpet and the opening ceremonies on the Berlinale site.

Monica said...

I edited the opening ceremony:
Video 1
Video 2

Jake is so adorable in the second video.

UltraViolet said...

Bless you, Monica. I was just gearing up to try to do that, but I don't know if I have the program on this computer. Now I don't have to worry!

Monica said...

It was the first time that I edited a video!
I used windows video maker. It's easy and fast!

I edited the photocall:
