35 y soltera

A Jewish version of Bridget Jones is the starting point for this first film that was born out of a viral YouTube video. “Why am I still single?” “What’s wrong with me?” and “Have I done something wrong?” form the algid repertoire Schargorodsky’s self-inquiry unfolds in this documentary in which other...

A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

This is a tricky film. Premiered in Sundance and exec produced by actor Elijah Wood, A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night is a US film that presents itself as “the first Iranian vampire western.” It’s a cinema-mix, a cross between Jim Jarmusch, David Lynch, and a vampire girl dressed as the lead character in Jafar Panahi’s The C...

Amor eterno

If Animals, maybe the finest Spanish opera prima in recent years (screened in Bafici ‘13), featured a passionate and contained study of teenage urges from an intimate dynamics that didn’t lack visual and sonic palpitation, Everelasting Love takes that vision of juvenile textures and its clash with a dark world where adulthood is formed...

Crumbs

In 2013, The Mysterious Fanta Ananas, an unknown Somalian filmmaker, surprised the festival fauna with Chigger Ale, a bizarre short film about a Hitler clone from outer space. Everything seems to indicate that behind Fanta’s novelesque identity sits Miguel Llansó, a visionary filmmaker and adventurer who was born in Madrid but is an Et...

Equí y n’otru tiempu

An intense and moving elegy for the fugaos or Asturian Maquis who were murdered in the Spanish Civil Post-war at the hands of Franco’s repressive forces, Here and in Other Time not only intends to be a political film, but also to work with the forms of cinema in a radically political way. After a prologue that conjures the ghosts of some of t...

Léone, mère & fils

Leóne looks like she came from the shared imagination of Fellini and Robert Crumb: she’s confident, huge, with blonde hair, and a vitality that makes you unable to resist being infatuated with her. That’s what her son does everyday when he watches her with Oedipus’ eyes as she waits tables in a little restaurant outside of...

Letters to Max

The Republic of Abjasia is a new country located in the South Western side of the Caucasus mountain chain. Many states consider that this nation doesn’t really exist. When Eric Baudelaire sent his first letter to Maxim Gvinja, even he wasn’t sure what could happen. But the answer came along after several weeks, and kicked off a kind wri...

Madeleine et les deux apaches

A grandmother’s love is more powerful than any other form of love. Hence, losing that affection can provoke some huge emptiness. Just as Banana Yoshimoto wrote about her grandmother’s absence in her book Kitchen, Christelle Lhereux pays homage to that relationship through a film. A film composed of two parts: the home videos Madeleine m...

Ming of Harlem: Twenty One Storeys in the Air

This is the family story of a man who lived for a long time in a Harlem apartment together with a Bengal tiger named Ming, who slept at his side and watched films with him on the weekends –a heterodox, inhumanly loving bond between the species that later extended to a crocodile named Al. It constitutes a poetic essay about certain connection...

Muerte blanca

How should one portray the tragic death of a sergeant and 44 drafted soldiers in the Chilean Andes during a march that concluded their training in 2005?

Near Death Experience

Some time after having transformed Gérard Depardieu’s (enormous) humanity into a cinematic value in the film Mammuth (long before Abel Ferrara did something similar in Welcome to New York), the duo formed by Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern takes another strange body (in every sense of the world) like Michel Houellebecq...

Nova Dubai

An architectural, urban, sexual film. Or a gay film rebellious against a certain type of real-estate developments. But none of the definitions mentioned do justice to a story that is concise, brief, raw and explicit and, at the same time, elusive, loose and intriguing. A film in which references to Pasolini and Fassbinder can be found processed and...

Prose du Transsibérien

A journey by train: the moving window like the screen of a landscape that is exterior as well as interior. The words of a poet that blend until they dissolve, blurring the borders of the intimate and the universal, merging with and separating from a snowed landscape that is always the same and always different. The window as link and frontier, as u...

Queen of Earth

There is a key element that can be seen when the title of the film is presented: the line below the title, with the year and copyright, makes it seem as if it were a film from the sixties or seventies, of those that show tortuous emotional confinement like, for example, Roman Polanski’s Repulsion. If Alex Ross Perry’s fourth film is psy...
