Udo Kier

German actor Udo Kier is set to be honoured at the 2nd International Film Festival Awards – Macao (IFFAM) with a Career Achievement Award.

Kier’s long and distinguished career has included work with well-known arthouse directors such as Werner Fassbinder, Gus Van Sant, Lars Von Trier and Werner Herzog.

He has balanced those roles with appearances in Hollywood fare such as Armageddon, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Blade.

Kier’s career began in the 1960s. His recent credits include Brawl in Cell Block 99, Alexander Payne’s Downsizing and Lars Von Trier’s Nymphomaniac: Volume II.

Christchurch woman Helen Milner might have got away with murder if it wasn’t for her sister-in-law Lee-Anne Cartier.

Milner poisoned her truck driver husband Philip Nisbet, 47, in 2009 and made it look like a suicide. But Cartier, Philip’s sister, became convinced Milner had killed Nisbet and set out to prove it. 

Cartier, who is in her mid-40s and lives in Australia, spent months investigating the case.

Walker says Lee-Anne Cartier's story has parallels to Erin Brokovich.
