ASH IS PUREST WHITE

(ASH IS PUREST WHITE)

by Jia Zhangke
2018

China

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • FESTA MOBILE

Jia Zhangke (President of the Torino 36 Jury) continues to recount China as it changes, by returning to his own film, to his own story and that of his country. Once again, the protagonist is his wife, Zhao Tao, who in this film portrays a woman who remains by her companion, completing a pathway that is 17 years and 7,000 kilometers long. A grand, sinuous, and shimmering film which begins like a gangster movie, continues like a melodrama, and turns into an existential drama.

BLAZE

(BLAZE)

by Ethan Hawke
2018
127'
USA

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • FESTA MOBILE

Played out on three temporal planes and entrusting the story to music, moments, and moods, the third film directed by Ethan Hawke recounts the life and opus of the misunderstood country singer-songwriter Blaze Foley: his relationship with Sybil Rosen (who wrote the screenplay with Hawke), his refusal to compromise, and his death at only 39 years of age. An unusual and alcoholic biopic, murky and intense, which reveals a great talent. Cameos by Sam Rockwell and Kris Kristofferson.

BULLI E PUPE

(BULLI E PUPE) - (BULLI E PUPE)

by Steve Della Casa, Chiara Ronchini
2018
80'
Italy

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • FESTA MOBILE

After journeying through the Italy of the “musicarelli” from the 1960s with Nessuno mi può giudicare, Della Casa turns his attention to post-WWII archives. The result is an X-ray of a different country: narrated by the politicians Togliatti and De Gasperi, by the cinema of Germi and Castellani, by the ironical social analysis of Eduardo and Zavattini, by the cultural brutality of Bianciardi, and the wild rhythms of boogie-woogie. A biography through images of an unusual Italy, in constant transformation.

CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?

(CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME?) - (COPIA ORIGINALE)

by Marielle Heller
2018
107'
USA

Section:

  • 36° TORINO FILM FESTIVAL
  • FESTA MOBILE

When the editorial world increasingly shifts toward simpler and more slapdash books, the author Lee Israel (Melissa McCarthy) finds herself out of a job. Her many books dedicated to people such as Katharine Hepburn and Estée Lauder can’t save her from an economic meltdown. Thus, she turns her hand to profitable literary scams: she fakes letters by deceased celebrities. Starring Richard E. Grant, a bitter comedy based on Israel’s memoirs. False and original, copies and collectibles, a reproducibility which is more intellectual than technical.

Keira Knightley plays one of the most revolutionary female figures of the 20th century.

In a theatre in Hong Kong, preparations are underway for the opening of a show: a star from long ago is returning to the stage.

 A chamber Aunt Sally for the director of Kill List, High-Rise, and Free Fire: Colin has rented a country villa and has invited his large extended family for a New Year’s Eve celebration. But not all his relatives love each other (or him). Confined to the rooms of the mansion and the few hours before midnight, a taut exchange of spite, insults, confessions, and revenge, with a heartfelt grand finale. A fantastic cast.
