Per aspera ad astra

It seems that good old Europe, despite being significantly less prudish than America, still can produce some sex scandals of its own. German equivalent of Janet Jackson's Superbowl performance happened on this year's Berlin Film Festival. According to German tabloid Bild, Sibil Kekilli, 23-year old star of Head On, a movie that won festival's Grand Prix, used to make pornos only few years ago.

Festival authorities and Fatih Akin, film's director, say that knew of actress' past but they didn't mind.

But I fear that American distributors won't have such liberal view. Head On would probably have some difficulties in reaching wider audiences and Ms. Kekilli probably can't hope to repeat Hollywood success of her compatriot Franka Potente.
