The first time the man and woman meet, it’s a clash. The second time is a stab in the heart. Two thirty-year-olds, Arman and Amélie (Vincent Macaigne and Maud Wyler), pursue each other and fall in and out of love. As the seasons pass. At the 2012 TFF, Betbeder’s easy-going and melancholy Les nuits avec Théodore, a tribute to the Nouvelle Vague, was an instruction manual for love life (and more).

What can we say? The synthesis of Fellini’s genius, balanced between dream and obsession, delirium and femininity, memory and melancholy. With his alter ego Marcello Mastroianni and the icons Anouk Aimée, Claudia Cardinale, Sandra Milo, Barbara Steele, etc. etc. Twenty years after the death of the director and fifty years after the movie’s release, a preview screening of the new digitally restored version, made by CSC-Cineteca Nazionale, RTI-Gruppo Mediaset and Deluxe.

In the first co-production by two of the most significant directors of contemporary cinema, we follow a nameless character during three moments of his life: in a commune on an island in Estonia, alone surrounded by Finland’s majestic nature, and finally on a stage in Norway, where he plays in a Black Metal band. A rapturous journey on the borderline between fiction and documentary, in search of utopia.

In August, the president of Ecuador withdrew the project to protect Yasunì National Park which his own government had developed, opening the area for oil exploration. Environmentalists and the local populations fought to protect the paradise of biodiversity. A cry of denunciation, to comprehend the logic of power and reinforce the urgent need to find alternative solutions to black gold.

Serge (Fabrice Luchini) has said goodbye to the stage and lives a hermit’s life on the Ile de Ré. Gauthier (Lambert Wilson), a TV star, asks him to perform Molière’s The Misanthrope. The two begin to rehearse, switching roles. A non-stop challenge and a well-matched verbal duel that brings to light professional insecurities, as a beautiful Italian girl (Sansa) puts their friendship to the test. 10 million Euros in box office receipts in France.

The director of the underrated Margin Call turns to Nature and Robert Redford, for a thrilling adventure story in which survival is dictated by the extreme conditions of water and sky. A humanist one-man-show, almost a seagoing Jeremiah Johnson, a Hollywood film without dialogue, the likes of which we haven’t seen in a while. A challenge to the market and a bet on a type of cinema we’re not used to any longer: the film wins both.

A girl and her mother: the image in the mirror reflects feelings and identity, uneasiness and emancipation. Part Bette Davis in Now, Voyager and the psychodrama that takes place on movie sets, the filmmaker interviews her now elderly mother.

An albino Filipino searches for his identity in an imaginary past. He thinks he is the son of an American and studies English from a dictionary. But the meanings don’t correspond, they escape him, just like his fellow countrymen in the face of the succession of unforeseeable events. A tragic story of colonial love in which nothing is in its proper place.

The few film clips remaining before Grifi and Sarchielli abandoned the movie camera for videotape. The 34 reels which they conserved, and are already in part selected, material recorded between 1972 and 1975, are conserved in these approximately 13 hours, in a restored and digitalized format. They will be screened in the working order in which they arrived: the non-linear story of the experience on which Anna is based, the first Italian feature-length video. In a gallery, five paths cross and subdivide this opus: Talking with Anna, Encounters at Massimo’s house, Anna’s Rome, Pretenses, Anna goes away.

After his adolescent son commits suicide, a fervent Catholic woman discovers a disturbing truth: a priest was molesting the boy, and during his “spiritual retreats,” her now-dead husband was preparing himself for a holy war against Islam. She becomes a bloodthirsty avenger. Parasitism, pedophilia, fundamentalism: from the director of Vampires (in competition at the 2011 TFF), a disturbing and highly caustic comedy which treats serious topics with uninhibited irreverence.

May 10, 1967. During the Monaco Grand Prix, the Ferrari driver Lorenzo Bandini dies in a dramatic accident. By chance, an 8mm movie camera films the accident, imprisoning the death of a man on a small spool of film, perhaps forever.

A telephone call from the past brings back memories and emotions: a kaleidoscope which combines and blends the present and the past, reality and the imaginary. To Mia Engberg, we are the result of choices and occurrences, we carry the traces of them with us, we cannot separate ourselves from the past, from the scars that cannot be eliminated. What is fiction? What is memory? What is reality? But in the end, does it really matter?

A river drift for the two Manso brothers, authors of this “shipwreck” in documentary form, as they descend the Zêzere and Tagus rivers all the way to Lisbon. On a raft (as the directors’ father did in the 1970s, imitating the Kon-Tiki expedition in ’47…), the film follows river currents through surges and life, searching for (and finding) encounters, mutinies and final beaches.

A girl disappears; a few days later she is found in a forest, raped and murdered. A rough-mannered policeman is convinced that the killer is a solitary teacher. When the teacher is suspended, he tries to get his private revenge on the father of the victim. From the directors of Rabies, an Israeli thriller veined with black humor: suspicion, violence, guilt and the dark side of human nature. A favorite of Quentin Tarantino’s.

Nicole is 41 years old; she has a husband and two children, and works as a pharmacist. It is the moment to take stock of her life, her doubts, her hidden desires. The situation takes a dive when she receives a letter from a mysterious Observer, who seems to be very well acquainted with her soul and her habits. A thriller grafted onto a vein of melodrama, lucid and sinister, with a grand performance by Michelle Giroux.

Dwight Evans is a homeless man who lives by his wits in Maryland. He sleeps in his old blue Pontiac, he washes up in the bathrooms of vacant houses, and he rummages through the dumpsters in search of food. When he discovers that the man who murdered his parents is about to be released from prison, he decides to carry out a crazy vendetta. A blunt and fast-paced revenge movie, the second film by the director of photography Jeremy Saulnier.

In an isolated weather station in the German Alps, a group of researchers is studying the consequences of climate change. The day before a visit by a government official, a mysterious red liquid starts to seep from one of the melting glaciers. It will have devastating genetic effects on the surrounding organisms. Suspense galore for the siege horror film by the director of Rammbock, Germany’s first zombie movie.

After a weekend of group therapy, Bob (Robert Culp) and Carol (Natalie Wood) return home and try to convince their friends Ted (Elliott Gould) and Alice (Dyan Cannon) that they need to liberate themselves and candidly share their emotions with the others. As they talk, the sexual tension rises. Mazursky debuts with a comedy that explores the malaise of thirty-year-olds raised in Puritanism and entering the era of permissiveness. To be or not to be “modern”?

They are beautiful, young, in love (even if he is impotent): the story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, the legendary pair of outlaws who made a living robbing banks during the Depression. Penn revolutionized the gangster movie genre with this explosive film: slow-motion, long takes, and staggered editing, to portray the violence and cynicism of American society. The chemistry between Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty is edgy and tender.

Based on the autobiography of Bertha Thompson, the story of a homeless woman and a union organizer who, in the Arkansas countryside impoverished by the 1929 crisis, become outlaws almost by accident and agitators by choice. Scorsese’s second feature film, produced by Corman as a low-cost exploitation, is part folk legend and part melodrama, romantic and “Christological.” Gorgeous Barbara Hershey and David Carradine (in his first starring role) fell in love on the set.

  • Cinema Lux - Sala 3, November 27, ore 11.15


Produced by Kim Ki-duk, an increasingly dark and tragic “political” comedy about the irremediable rift between North and South Korea. Two neighboring families (one real and in crisis, the other fake and apparently happy) fight for supremacy and only catch a glimpse of possible friendship when it’s too late. Reality and its representation mix together in a bitter game of role-playing. There might be hope, but only for the young.

David, an uptight Yale student, decides to explore life and spend a summer harvesting apples in Oregon. His girlfriend dumps him for a stranger, his boss is weird, a colleague wants to seduce him. Tragic-comic adventures in the first film based on a short story by David Sedaris: a hilarious, penetrating and merciless portrait of a person out to discover the world, sexuality and spirituality. (C.O.G. stands for “Child of God.”)

The Portuguese fortress of Cacheu, constructed in 1588 for the slave trade, today conserves the ruins of four statues. The performance by Joana Barrios outlines the various forms and the contexts in which they appeared over the years, revealing their symbolic contradictions, like so many epiphanies of a profound historical truth.

Nighttime, a couple in a car, an accident caused by a car coming from the other direction. The driver of the second car gets out and carries away the woman’s body. This is how we meet Carlos, a solitary tailor in Granada who is a serial killer by night. A taut and almost bloodless thriller, a dizzying descent into the emotions and ambushes of a predator (the beach scene is magnificent), by the director of La mitad de Oscar.

The diary of a special summer in Algiers, the year celebrating the 50th anniversary of the country’s independence from French colonization. An “equivocal” story, perforce fragmented, of a city that straddling Africa and Europe, a clear-eyed and ironical reflection on post-colonial identity and its infinite possibilities to be (or not to be).

In a motel in the States in the early ‘80s, a chess tournament is taking place between humans and a computer. Shot with a video camera of the era: brilliant, gauche computer researchers, in a sort of social payback, working on programs that can beat humans; couples participating at a sexual self-awareness convention.

The body and the wound. The film shows cuts, incisions, craters in faces and limbs, skin that is lifted, manipulated, sewn back up: Müller and Girardet make the decisive step and translate the key concept of their cinema (cuts) into the splatter image of a cut body.

From West to East: Billy and Capitan American cross the United States, driving their brand new choppers to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. The epitome of road movies and a synthesis of the radical culture, a voyage into the decline of the American Dream, into the new dreams of rebellion, and into rock music. Indie to its core, it was produced on a shoestring budget and made millions. Directed by Dennis Hopper (Billy), produced by Peter Fonda (Capitan America) and Bob Rafelson, and Jack Nicholson steals every scene he’s in.

An elderly hardworking Piedmontese woman, a Moroccan immigrant, a young Spanish filmmaker: their encounter in one of Europe’s biggest open-air markets, Porta Palazzo, transforms itself into a glimmer of a more beautiful world. With the same lightness as the film, the borders and the differences grow dim and contact becomes possible.

John Wintergreen, a Vietnam veteran, is just over five feet tall; he works as a cop in Arizona. His dream is to become a member of the homicide squad, in order to bring people to justice, but also to finally drive one of the squad’s mighty Electra Glides. His dream comes true but he realizes that there isn’t much justice around. Set in the desert (Ford’s Monument Valley), a bizarre and surreal parable, the only film directed by the musician and music impresario.

Sardinia. The countryside in the province of Iglesias. Three men: Antonello, Angelo and Fausto, their lives and their stories, inside and outside a “therapeutic community for pathological addictions.” Each one, behind and in front of the movie camera, seems to regain control of their own space and their own time, in a film that restores moments of love and freedom.

The other side of Tony Soprano: or rather, a clumsy, enamored and tender James Gandolfini in a romantic comedy about divorced people who are disappointed, cautious and a bit “grumpy.” With him the Emmy Award winners Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Catherine Keener. Mature feelings, real emotions, natural shyness and inevitable misunderstandings, well orchestrated by the director of Walking and Talking and episodes of Sex and the City and Six Feet Under.

Looking for Richard in the company of Alessandro Gassman, who gives a Burton-like rendition of the famous Shakespeare tragedy. From the “Genesis of the show” to the “Night before the opening,” passing by way of the “Rehearsals,” “Staging,” “Waiting for the debut” we enter into the pulsing heart of RIII – Richard III, of which Gassman is both director and star. An educational documentary to the show, to be seen at the theatre.

Philip Marlowe is investigating the disappearance of Velma, a night club dancer and the moll of a gangster who has just been released from prison. Based on Chandler’s tale “Farewell, My Lovely” a contorted intrigue in a gloomy and deadened Los Angeles. Robert Mitchum is fantastic; crumpled and too old for the job, he seems to have already seen all the evil the city has to offer. Charlotte Rampling is ambiguous and dangerous. Dick Richards directs without nostalgia, but with a lucid, “hyper-realistic” awareness of the legend’s hopelessness.

The dream of an impossible Eldorado (the “Fat City” of the title) for two boxers who fight in the lowest category in a marginal city (Stockton). A sad periphery of the empire for souls who have reached the end of the line, whether they be over-the-hill failed boxers or eager newcomers. Stacy Keach and Jeff Bridges share friendship, drinking binges and disappointments in a melancholy, lucid masterpiece about those years. Directed by an old hand who had it all figured out.

Robert Eroica Dupea is a pianist, but he has left his bourgeois, intellectual family to go on the road. While working on an oil pipeline, he learns that his father is sick and decides to return home. A backward journey, the story of an impossible return, of roots that are both regretted and endured with difficulty, a tour de force by Jack Nicholson (perhaps his best performance). The second movie directed by Rafelson is a bastion. Star turns are the clumsy, petulant maid Karen Black and Robert’s monologue before his mute father.

A group of artists and musicians, shaken by the death of their friend, build extraordinary boats out of ordinary junk and set out for open water. A lyrical and melancholy film with a surreal tone in the vein of Beasts of the Southern Wild, Flood Tide intertwines threads of fiction with a real-life journey down the Hudson River. Directed by filmmaker and musician Todd Chandler and starring (and featuring live performances by) members of the indie-folk band Dark Dark Dark.

An aspiring ballerina, with melancholic wonder and unshakable optimism, deals with the difficulties of a life that still needs to find a direction. Part Woody Allen and part Nouvelle Vague, with glittery New York in black and white as a backdrop, Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Greenberg), with dizzying expressive freedom, draws a female character with a contagious vitality (Greta Gerwig, who co-wrote the script).

Many stories combine to portray a year in the lives of the young students at the Teatro alla Scala Academy, the only academy in the world that trains all the professional figures of theatrical productions.

“Play one wrong note and you die”: this is the message a young pianist who suffers from stage fright finds written on his music sheet just as he is about to start playing a concert. It has been called “Piano Speed” and the hands of Elijah Wood (who practiced the piano for months) do in fact fly, as he listens to the voice of bad guy John Cusack talking into his ear-bud. High tension, orchestrated by the director of Agnosia.

“The home, the objects, the prints and the nature of Franco Piavoli. We asked them to talk.” Piavoli is one of the most discreet and least prolific of the great directors of Italian cinema. This portrait, made by two young filmmakers, becomes a place of sharing of words and images, a dialogue between two generations of artists who push the envelope in their constant research of the cinema of the future.

Harold is 18 years old, he is obsessed with death, he goes to funerals, he visits cemeteries, his fakes his suicide to attract his mother’s attention. And then one day he meets Maude, an 80-year-old sculptress who loves life. A necrophile and surreal comedy about the freedom to be yourself, starring Bud Cort (Altman’s Brewster McCloud) and Ruth Gordon (a great Hollywood screenwriter, with her husband Garson Kanin).

Casanova, old and worn down, wanders with a servant through the forests of Central Europe. Looming over him is Count Dracula, an unsettling omen of the end of an era. After Don Chisciotte e i Re Magi (Don Quixote and the Three Wise Men), Serra once again offers an interpretation of the myths of Western culture. In his rapturous and ironical films, he deals with the crucial passage from enlightenment to romanticism, from classical rationality to modern violence. A great film.

Goliarda Sapienza takes us by the hand and leads us through the alleys and ruins of what remains of the ancient quarter of San Berillo in Catania, which was destroyed in the debacle of the economic boom: a black hole in the center of the city, where time is suspended, inhabited by ghosts of yesterday and today, a crossroads of stories that have passed through, amid legends, popular culture and brothels.

Lives intertwine during a dry, hot summer: a Moldavian wrestler who works as a hired hand, a farmer who cultivates organic food, a Filipino maid, and elderly Maria, who is crippled and has difficulty breathing, but is stubbornly attached to life and nature. A story of marginality, but also a delicate and almost visionary comedy, with the real protagonists of the stories.

A tattooist who is separated and a debt-ridden beautician. A female assassin who lives in prison and hides a secret. A mysterious chair that contains jewels. A fat priest who is pursuing the ill-gotten gains. A crazy treasure hunt that crosses Northeastern Italy with its bizarre humanity. The new movie by Carlo Mazzacurati, starring Valerio Mastandrea and Isabella Ragonese: “a cross between an outlandish comedy and a sentimental movie,” with a title worthy of Hans Christian Andersen.

An American director, a Mexican tour guide, a Mayan archeological site, the end of the world, the project of a film to make, shots of someone taking drugs… What is cinema today? And what can still be defined as cinema? Raya Martin comes back to the TFF in tandem with Mark Peranson, with a surreal and Dadaistic movie that searches for solutions to the Lumière brothers’ famous declaration that cinema is an invention without a future.

But the gambler’s heaven has changed and they aren’t exactly spring chickens anymore: Michael Douglas, Robert De Niro, Morgan Freeman and Kevin Kline, in a comedy that starts like a sort of senior-citizen Hangover  and transforms itself into a reflection on the efforts and secrets it takes to keep a long-term friendship going.

A group of children playing on a beach in Algeria, the magic of empty moments, idleness, litanies, drowsiness. And suddenly, a military raid, a game that mirrors the ugly “games” of grownups. The story of Algeria as told through the freedom and irreverence of childhood, in a dance of shadows and techno-pop musical labyrinths.

Almost a mockumetary, an unusual fresco of the world of cinema and its rituals.

He makes a friend, a penniless consumptive who dreams of going to Florida.

The early 1900s. Two elderly law enforcers have to transport a gold shipment but their plans go awry when they meet a woman who is unhappily married (to a violent miner). The second film directed by Sam Peckinpah and the (post-Ford) prototype of the somber, melancholy and pain-filled western, with scenes of frenzy (the wedding) and collapsing ideals. Starring Joel McCrea and Randolph Scott, two old glories of B westerns.

A silent observation of the life of a town in Piana di Gioia Tauro, where the misery of its inhabitants comes into contact with that of the people who come in search of work, producing more misery. A painful look at the Italy that didn’t use to be a poor country, a sign of the hopeless crisis of the present global economic situation.

After spending six years in prison, Max dreams of opening a car wash in Pittsburgh. Lionel is a former sailor on his way to Detroit to meet a son he’s never seen before. The two become friends in California and travel together across rural and marginal America. Schatzberg’s third movie and one of the masterpieces of the era, as picaresque and tragic as a short story by Steinbeck, in which utopia is always being trampled by reality. Gene Hackman and Al Pacino form a Beckettian pair.

They meet, they fall in love, they decide to live together. Around a kitchen table, a girl and her companion nurture their happiness in the little events of daily life. Then nothing seems to make sense to him anymore and they are overcome by the shadow of unhappiness. From afar, Ozu watches over this first work about the distance that separates the motions of everyday life from those of life itself, the reasons of happiness from those of love.

In Japan devastated by WWII, a failed author, a frigid prostitute, and an amputee soldier try to survive, dealing with poverty, desperation and Evil. Eros and Thanatos in a debut film that is shocking, stunned and nihilistic, with the roughness of a late Wakamatsu and the pain of Oshima. The portrait of a country on the edge of an abyss, adrift, a punch in the stomach of a wake-up call.

An elderly woman spends her days alone in her house, living in an impossible elsewhere in her dreams: a big beach and a wooden shack where she could be happy once again. Her one companion is a black-headed dog, a symbol of inevitable destiny. A film of pure form that is held in check, silent and solemn, and at the same time expressionistic and elusive, played out on the uncertain borderline between waking and sleep.

A journalist looks out the window and sees a murder taking place in the house across the way. The murdered man played a voyeur in a TV program entitled Peeping Toms. A model gets psychiatric help for the trauma she suffered when she was separated from her Siamese twin. Vertigo from crossing views, split personalities and nods to Hitchcock in the first horror movie directed by Brian de Palma, starring Peter Bogdanovich, the New Hollywood “meta-director” par excellence.

Twenty-three girls arrive in Santa Barbara from every corner of California to participate in the “Young American Miss” beauty pageant. For four days, they are questioned regarding their talents, their aspirations, their life; they are trained by a choreographer, and “weighed” and spied on by the judges and voyeurs. But the girls know that the only important aspect is their appearance. A satire of show time society, constructed and shot like Nashville (and released shortly after Altman’s masterpiece), a cross-section of provincial euphoria, orchestrated by Michael Ritchie and the movie’s star, Bruce Dern.

Nafpaktia, western Greece, a mountainous and inhospitable land of wind, rain and ancestral poverty. The economic crisis is taking its toll here, too, in the stone houses of shepherds and in desperate crowds. A frightening, merciless portrait of a world that is timeless, but dramatically part of History. It starts like a documentary, it ends like a classical myth, with a sacrificial rite.

While some young people practice overcoming any and all obstacles, others – each in their own way – denounce the unbearable situation in the Strip, and the earth doggedly continues to produce its fruit.

A lunatic shoots at people who are at a drive-in to see The Terror, starring Boris Karloff. An elderly horror actor (Karloff, again) is the only one who can stop him. The ultra-meta-linguistic debut film (a genre B movie: it was produced by Roger Corman) by Bogdanovich, who also plays the part of a director, with the last great performance by Karloff, the movie portrays a world in which senseless and widespread violence has surpassed any cinematographic horror.

Part mockumentary and part found footage, a political and Satanist horror film that digs beneath the veneer of lies and power. A lot of suspense and a heart-stopping final half hour.

Walk-ons include the real Hell’s Angels of Venice Beach; among the girls, Nancy Sinatra (Frank’s daughter) and Diana Ladd (Laura Dern’s mother). The motorcycle funeral is memorable.

In California, during the Depression, a group of people who are down on their luck dance for hundreds of hours at a dance marathon, egged on by the audience and the dizzying tempo set by the master of ceremonies, a foul, icy Gig Young (who won an Oscar). The prize: $1,500. If you fall down, you’re out. Pollack’s fifth movie as director, based on the novel by Horace McCoy, a claustrophobic nightmare, engrossing and violent, leaving viewers breathless and hopeless. With an aching Jane Fonda.

Martin Bonner works for a Christian organization in Nevada that helps former inmates readjust to life on the outside. Travis has just been released from prison and wants to get back in contact with his daughter. Two bruised people who find the meaning of a new attachment to reality in reserved human solidarity. From the Sundance festival, a controlled, aware movie, full of human warmth.

A pastor runs from a church and is almost run over by a young man, who then gives him a lift in his car. The pastor is actually a thief and the young man can’t wait to learn the trade. Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges in Cimino’s debut movie (produced by Eastwood’s Malpaso). A heist movie hunting down lost booty, but also the story of a friendship that grows like a father and son relationship. In the background, motels, banks and country churches.

In a future world dedicated to the production and consumption of goods, people live underground; they are controlled through the administration of drugs, alphanumerical codes have taken the place of names, and everybody wears uniforms. Even love has been banned. But THX and LUH stop taking the drugs and decide to escape to the surface. By developing his graduating short film, Lucas debuts on a low budget with a lucid example of Orwellian science fiction.

In Hong Kong, the overlapping lives of a prostitute, a ballerina who works in a restaurant, a shop keeper and an elevator boy. Yu Likwai debuts in feature films (and is immediately selected to compete in Cannes) with an impressionistic melodrama which traces sentimental trajectories similar to those of Hou Hsiao Hsien. Splendid nocturnal shooting, in a city that is continuously lit by neon and colored lights.

Two nameless drivers (the musicians James Taylor and Dennis Wilson) have a souped-up Chevrolet and participate in illegal car races. One day, they challenge the driver of a Ferrari GTO to a race all the way to Washington. But after a while each goes his own way. An existential road movie, with roads, cars, encounters, silences, chitchat (about GTOs, a great Warren Oates), landscapes, and without a touch of rhetoric. Monte Hellman, a precursor of Wim Wenders. Debut script by Rudy Wurlitzer.

By the director of the masterpiece Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), a gloomy and hopeless noir. The kidnapping of a girl sets off a carousel of repulsive humanity: as the father searches for his daughter, surrounded by inept policemen, untrustworthy friends and greedy relatives, a society emerges that is collapsed, rotten, cynical. A desperate Bollywood without the songs - ugly, dirty and mean - paints a country where a life can be bought for a suitcase full of scrap paper.

The sequel of V/H/S (2012 TFF): once again, a collection of horror episodes and fragments in found footage style, directed by various filmmakers. Ghosts, zombies and aliens, a Safe Heaven punch in the gut, directed by Gareth Evans (The Raid, in competition at the 2011 TFF) and Timo Tjahjanto, a satanic tour de force, no holds barred. Splatter and gore go hand-in-hand, with a touch of irony. Maybe even better than the original.

A restless and rebellious adolescent, whose father is North African and whose mother is French, is entrusted to his aunt and uncle in Strasbourg to be initiated into the world of unskilled labor. Instead, he discovers the nocturnal and mysterious world of urban graffiti, with all its fascinating, tactile and material aspects. A social drama which sticks as close as a second skin to reality and retains all its vital energy, shot with a broad-ranging gaze that recalls Michael Mann.

The highway police stop him for speeding, he makes a run for it and the hunt is on. The blind DJ Super Soul guides him by radio. After crossing three state borders, Kowalski becomes a hero of farmers and dropouts. Non-stop music in the third film by Sarafian. Barry Newman becomes a cult actor.

Nighttime, a deserted street: a man driving a snowplow, the body of another man hidden beneath the snow. As the first man wanders disoriented through the Canadian forest, flashbacks reveal his tie to the second. A desperate, cynical, dreamlike and hallucinated black comedy, similar to Fargo in its tone and setting, with an excellent Thomas Haden Church: virtually the sole character, raving and muttering.

Wolf Murmelstein is the son of Benjamin, Le dernier des injustes, who was interviewed in Claude Lanzmann’s latest movie. Rabbi Murmelstein, a burdensome father, was the last head of the Theresienstadt ghetto, a model ghetto Hitler personally had built for propaganda purposes. After moving to Rome at the end of the war, the Murmelsteins are marginalized by the Jewish community. Wolf still struggles with the figure of his father and tries to find an acceptable place for him in his life and in History.

From August 15-18, 1969, over 400,000 young people gathered north of New York to celebrate three days of peace, music (rock) and love (free). Rain, mud, weed, LSD, Army helicopters, fans, and thirty-two rock bands. Plus Michael Wadleigh and his assistant Martin Scorsese, who filmed, cut, spliced and edited. The manifesto of the hippie culture (which was already on the wane). With all the legends of rock music, concluding with Jimi Hendrix and his solo rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner.

A dirty dozen of highway policemen: ugly, dirty and bad. They are pushers, slipshod, sex maniacs and stupid. The new comedy by Quentin Dupieux (alias Mr. Oizo, at last year’s TFF with Wrong) plays with genres, shuffling his usual surreal cynicism with some madcap comedy. Irreverent, hilarious, unclassifiable. Police Academy dipped in acid. With a surprise finish.

Part Ghost Story and part Ruin Porn, Yumen is a kaleidoscopic combination of documentary, performing arts and socialist realism. A number of solitary people bring back to life a vast collective history which had been lost among the ruins of what used to be one of the major oil mining complexes in the arid north-west region of China.
