A documentary called "Rammstein Paris" will be projected at Cannes Festival

A 98 minutes documentary about Rammstein will be broadcasted at Cannes Festival this year. "Rammstein Paris" has been directed by Jonas Åkerlund, who also filmed the concerts in Paris, on March 6th and 7th, 2012. The teaser says this: A subtle musical documentary glorifying the Teutonic band, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, author of the "Lady Dior" advertising, with Marion Cotillard. What else?

The documentary was projected on May 11 at 3:30pm (local time) at Palais H and will be projected again on May 16, same time, at Palais B. There are good chances that the film will be included as a bonus on the upcoming DVD/Blu-Ray of Paris.

Rammstein takes legal action against the German Federal Republic following the censorship of LIFAD

Fans who already followed the band in 2009 know that the German Federal Republic censured the album Liebe ist für alle da shortly after its release. The album was completely removed from German record shops, until the return a few weeks later of a censored version without the song Ich tu dir weh and without some pictures of the booklet. The Bundesrepublik thought it was encouraging minors to shocking practices and unsafe sex.

Six years later, the case takes a new turn. Rammstein today asks the Regional Court of Bonn damages of 66,000 euros. The bands says that they were forced to destroy 80,000 copies of the record due to the censorship.

The request of Rammstein is probably legitimate, but we wonder why it happens so late. Other elements will probably allow us to understand things more clearly in the future.
