BERLIN (AP) -- The Berlin International Film Festival is getting underway with the first of 19 contenders for the event's top Golden Bear honor -- a movie starring Juliette Binoche as the wife of an Arctic explorer.

"Nobody Wants the Night," directed by Isabel Coixet and starring Binoche as Josephine Peary, premieres Thursday, kicking off a typically varied competition at the year's first major European film festival.

Rivals include Terrence Mallick's new "Knight of Cups," Werner Herzog's "Queen of the Desert," and films from Vietnam, Guatemala and Romania.

This year's seven-member festival jury is headed by American director Darren Aronofsky. Winners of the Golden Bear are notoriously hard to predict; last year, the honor went to Chinese director Diao Yinan's "Black Coal, Thin Ice."
