The line-up for the Berlinale's Competition has now been finalised with a total of 26 titles, including 19 world premieres, six international premieres and one European Premiere.

Among the latest titles to be unveiled are the Argentine director Ariel Rotter's second feature The Other (El Otro) which deals with the existential uncertainty of a man who decides to change his identity, Israeli film-maker Joseph Cedar's Beaufort about the last military unit to be stationed in southern Lebanon prior to the troops being withdrawn from the country, and Li Yu's Lost in Beijing from China, which portrays the longings, fears and values of several residents of Beijing against the backdrop of a rapidly changing metropolis.

In addition, festival director Dieter Kosslick and his selection committee have invited Ryan Eslinger's drama When A Man Falls In The Forest, starring Sharon Stone, Timothy Hutton and Dylan Baker, and Zack Snyder's 300, which is set in virtual locations and based on drawings by the legendary comic-book writer Frank Miller, as well as two UK productions: Richard Eyre's Zoe Heller adaptation Notes On A Scandal and David Mackenzie's Hallam Foe, starring Jamie Bell.

This year's awards ceremony will be followed on the evening of February 17 by Angel, the new film by French director Francois Ozon who has been a regular visitor to the Berlinale in the past with his previous films. Filmed entirely in English with a cast including 2006 Jury President Charlotte Rampling and Sam Neill and set in England at the beginning of the 20th century, Angel portrays the rise and fall of a young woman from humble beginnings, who manages to break into the highest echelons of society as an author
