  • 013 CIFF - Hands of a Mother
    Voor alle filmtijden:
    Winner of the Young German Cinema Award for Best Director as well as the Best Actor prize (for lead Andreas Döhler) at the Munich Film Festival, Florian Eichinger’s perfectly acted drama is a rare thing these days: a film for thinking adults that confronts a difficult subject—parental child abuse—with intelligence and compassion, while eschewing any hints of melodramatic histrionics.

    On a boat cruise, 39-year-old husband and father Markus (Döhler, doing a marvellous job in a very demanding role) is struck by a memory. He comes to realise that his mother, Renate (Katrin Pollitt), sexually abused him when he was a child. (Statistics suggest that in about 10 to 20 per cent of sexual-abuse cases, the perpetrators are women and female teenagers.) To his surprise, his mother immediately admits her crimes. How does one come to terms with such a thing? This is the gist of Eichinger’s fine film as he explores the psychological and professional fallout for Markus and everyone in his family, including his wife, Monika (a superb Jessica Schwarz) and, not least, Renate herself. Amongst many other admirable qualities, the film is notable in that it never caricatures anyone. Yes, there are some shocking moments, but they are perfectly justified and well earned. The film also has masterly pacing: there is a tension running throughout suggesting that things may explode in a heartbeat. And, finally, Eichinger and his great cast have such confidence in what they are doing that there is not a single exploitative moment in the whole film. Remarkable!

    Voor alle filmtijden:
    India’s submission for the Best Foreign-Language Film Academy Award in 2017, Amit V. Masurkar’s darkly comic political satire centres on Newton Kumar (Indian star Rajkummar Rao), an idealistic government clerk entrusted with a task that appears deceptively simple: conducting elections in a remote village in the jungles of central India, where there are less than 100 potential voters. But the bushes are full of Communist guerrillas engaged in armed insurrection, the security force charged with protecting Newton’s team is openly hostile, and the indigenous locals are both afraid of guerrilla reprisals for voting and totally in the dark as to who the candidates actually are. ‘Free and fair elections’ in a minefield like this will require all the moxie Newton can muster, for, as they say in the jungle, ‘The more things change, the worse they will get’.

    ‘The subversive genius of Amit V. Masurkar's sophomore feature Newton is how it brings out the best and the worst of the electoral system in the form of an offbeat comedy… This smart indie is amusing all the way to its bittersweet conclusion. The professional cast is well-versed in ironic social nuance. Both exasperating and endearing in the title role, Rao again shows he is a chameleon actor whose gift for poker-faced comedy revs up the figure of a rigid young civil servant.’—Deborah Young, Hollywood Reporter

    Voor alle filmtijden:
    First-time director Natalia Santa’s droll drama about three middle-aged men whose friendship centres on chess manages to draw trenchant parallels between the careworn lives of its protagonists and the shabby bars, cafés, casinos, and chess clubs (including the famous Lasker club) that continue to age (dis)gracefully on the streets of Bogotá. Samuel (Gonzalo di Sagarminaga, who also wrote the score), an underemployed math tutor and divorced father, spends most of his time playing chess and avoiding romantic involvement, much as his buddies Marcos (Manuel Navarro) and Joaquin (Hernan Mendez) do. Something has to change… Drawing comparisons with the work of Aki Kaurismäki for its melancholic charm and affably down-at-heal characters, The Dragon Defense also displays Santa’s intuitive way with composition and imagery.

    ‘Santa harvests quiet moments of humanity and poetry from the humdrum lives of [the] three washed-up older men… The Dragon Defense’s keen sense of how people can be moulded by their environment until they become part of the background is refreshingly original and conveyed with real directorial panache… [This is] a film whose charms build by slow accretion—not least of them the friendship of these three rather pointless but still oddly engaging men. Santa’s direction is confident, especially in terms of the rhythm and pacing.’—Lee Marshall, Screen

    Voor alle filmtijden:
    Subtle, funny, unpretentious, and completely charming, Florencia Percia’s debut is a warm comedy that starts from a basic premise and builds into a witty exploration of one woman’s desire for change. Clara (the deadpan Elisa Carricajo), a linguistics research fellow, moves into a new apartment in Buenos Aires with her older professor boyfriend, after which he promptly jets off to a conference in Bologna. A chance meeting with a female neighbour leads Clara along a path that will eventually see her overhaul her life…

    The fun lies in the way Percia and lead actor Carricajo make this change come about. The visuals are sunny, unbusy, occasionally witty (as when a Tai-Chi session during a country retreat features a herd of oblivious cows in the background), and completely of a piece with the story—form and content mesh perfectly here—while running jokes, like the constant references to honey and mead, bring repeated smiles to one’s face. Finally, the film is so wonderfully, obviously made by a young woman wise beyond her years—the fact that Percia chooses to be gently mocking, instead of rancorous, when various males indulge in a little ‘mansplaining’ suggests her essentially humanist world view. Cetaceans is a real winner, and it announces a major new talent on the Argentine film scene.

  • 013 CIFF - Clean up
    Voor alle filmtijden:
    Given its depth of feeling and precise visual style, it’s astounding to learn that Kwon Man-ki’s debut drama, Clean Up—which shared the Best Film award in the New Currents section of the prestigious Busan International Film Festival last year—was his graduation project from the Korean Academy of Fine Arts. There is no evidence whatsoever that this is a student work: the subtlety of Kwon’s narrative, the slow-build, tension-filled plot that twists and turns in exactly the right spots, and the committed performances of the film’s two leads suggest the work of a veteran filmmaker with an acute understanding of human psychology.

    Jing-ju (Yoon Ji-hye, remarkable), a dour member of a cleaning team that handles everything from highway tunnels to blood-spattered crime scenes, is a loner who self-medicates to excess with soju every night. She is a woman with a dark secret that has left her as a shell of her former self. When 18-year-old ex-convict Min-gu (excellent newcomer Kim Dae-gun) joins the cleaning company, Jung-ju is horrified to recognise him and deeply afraid that he will recognise her. He doesn’t—at least, not at first… To say anything more would be to enter spoiler territory, but rest assured that what follows is both unpredictable and deeply affecting. ‘Impressive… Clean Up potently examines feelings of grief, guilt, and redemption…’—Richard Kuipers, Variety

    ‘It is total anarchy. If you get used to it, you’ll survive.’ So says the eccentric Vova (a deadpan Viktor Zhdanov) to our hero, city-bred interpreter Lukas (Serhiy Stepansky), after the latter finds himself separated from his fellow OSCE security inspection team in Ukraine’s war-torn southern steppes. Things begin to get very strange very quickly for the clueless outsider: he is quickly relieved of his passport and money, and, with Vova and his beautiful daughter Marushka (Khrystyna Deilyk) doing their best to help, Lukas is led into a surreal pilgrim’s progress that would test anyone’s sanity… Roman Bondarchuk’s visually resplendent (kudos to cinematographer Vadym Ilkov for some truly stunning imagery) and very dark comedy charts one man’s descent into a world without rules, a world where a city boy might find himself thrown into a sun-baked pit for no reason—and maybe learn a thing or two, adapt, and even start to love his crazy surroundings…

    ‘A poetically surreal love letter to an untamed corner of the Wild East… [Bondarchuk’s film is a] mix of Kafka-esque road movie and contemporary Western, rich in sumptuous visuals and lyrical strangeness. There are hints of David Lynch’s macabre absurdism here, but also some agreeably carnivalesque interludes reminiscent of Federico Fellini [and] Emir Kusturica… A beautifully crafted work.’—Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter

    Voor alle filmtijden:
    Two mismatched boys in a stolen Audi wend their way clear across the Czech Republic in Olmo Omerzu’s road movie, an alternately melancholic and uplifting tale that won the Czech Lion (the Czech equivalent of the Oscar) for Best Film earlier this year and netted Omerzu the Best Director award at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival in 2018. Equally playful and hard-edged, funny and poignant, the film follows 14-year-old Mára (newcomer Tomáš Mrvík in a star-making turn), a supposedly tough skinhead, and 12-year-old Heduš (Jan František Uher, irresistible), a chubby sidekick dressed in camouflage clothing and carrying a BB gun, as they make their way to Mára’s revered grandfather’s home. What they are running away from is never made explicit, but the journey’s the thing: along the way they acquire an unwanted dog, lust after and eventually befriend a lovely young hitchhiker (Eliška Křenková), and learn some hard life lessons. Omerzu’s introduction of a little magic realism into this special coming-of-age narrative gives it the wings that allow it to soar…

    ‘Delightfully unsentimental… [Cinematographer] Lukáš Milota frames the action impeccably, with hard, desaturated imagery never romancing the dismal, drizzly roadside locations, while still having a sullen beauty that also complements [the film’s] moments of deadpan humour… There are moments of magic and moments of mayhem, but the emotional effect of this you-and-me-against-the-world story is a piercingly bittersweet melancholy that anyone ever has to grow up…’—Jessica Kiang, Variety

    Voor alle filmtijden:
    Writer-director-star Shady Srour’s alternately funny and compassionate satire tackles a subject you rarely see onscreen—the lives of modern Arab Christians scraping by in Israel—and it does so in a wholly winning way. Adam (Srour), a gloomy, unsuccessful, 40-ish Arab-Christian businessman living in Nazareth with his pregnant wife, decides to bottle the ‘holy air’ from Mount Precipice and sell it to tourists. But there are a lot of people and circumstances—from gangsters demanding protection money to his dying father—standing in his way… Reminiscent of the work of Elia Suleiman and replete with inspired visual gags, Holy Air drolly captures the spirit of a very confusing place, where Muslim, Jew, and Christian are constantly either at odds with one another or competing for the tourist dollar…

    ‘A winningly satiric comedy that’s as tenderhearted as it is sly… Srour has a soulful sad-sack quality as his film’s central character, Adam, a Christian Arab Israeli who’s not quite ready for fatherhood or for the painful fading of his ailing father… The humour in Holy Air is inseparable from its poignancy, and every element of the film expresses that interconnection, from the performances to the spirited, melancholy-laced score by Habib Shehadeh Hanna.’—Sheri Linden, Hollywood Reporter

    Voor alle filmtijden:
    Winner of the Best Director award at the 2017 Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, Peter Bebjak’s thriller is all about crossing ‘lines’—both physical and moral—and the tragic consequences for doing so in the no-man’s-land straddling the Slovak Republic-Ukraine border. It’s 2007 and the Slovak Republic is about to join the European Union, something that could prove deadly for Adam (a riveting Tomáš Maštalír) and his cigarette-smuggling business. A husband and a father with a moral code—no involvement with hard drugs for him and his team—Adam is an anachronism, especially in relation to his thoroughly immoral, no-holds-barred Ukrainian rival across the border. With change coming, the stakes rising, and betrayal looming, Adam is backed into a corner…

    ‘Redolent of The Godfather and The Sopranos with a soupçon of Animal Kingdom and a welcome dose of black humour, The Line is an entertaining, fast-paced crime thriller… [It] leaps to the top of its genre class with muscular direction from Slovak director Peter Bebjak; a genre-savvy screenplay by Peter Balko; unusual locations spectacularly captured; a propulsive score; and impressive performances, in particular, a go-for-broke, extremely physical turn from Slovak theatre and TV star Tomáš Maštalír as the lead.’—Alissa Simon, Variety

  • 013 CIFF - Sicilian Ghost Story
    Voor alle filmtijden:
    When the hypnotic Sicilian Ghost Story opened the Critics’ Week at Cannes in 2017, it received a thunderous ten-minute standing ovation, and it is not hard to understand why. Based on a true tale—the 1993 Mafia kidnapping of the son of an informant and the boy’s 779-day ordeal—Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza’s drama uses this reality as a mere starting point for a deep dive into a dream world where people and nature are always more than they seem. When her 12-year-old classmate and new heartthrob Giuseppe (Gaetano Fernandez) vanishes without a word, young Luna (marvellously played by Julia Jedlikowska) mounts a search for him that takes her into mysterious and dangerous places… Gorgeously photographed by Italy’s foremost cinematographer, Luca Bigazzi (The Great Beauty, Youth), Sicilian Ghost Story is simply unforgettable.

    '[The film] carries an emotional punch greater than the melodramatic clinches of most adult crime, horror, or message movies. Sicilian Ghost Story melds elements of all three into a poignant, rapturous panorama of imperilled youth triumphing—albeit partway—over malice and corruption. This insidiously unsettling, genuinely haunting film captures the latent evil within a sun-kissed Sicilian town and the natural and supernatural shocks and wonders that permeate the deep forest beyond.’— Michael Sragow, Film Comment

    Probably the best Canadian film of 2018, Philippe Lesage’s audacious, double-focused coming-of-age drama follows the differing trajectories of Salinger-reading 16-year-old Guillaume (Théodore Pellerin, riveting) and his older, more hedonistic half-sister Charlotte (Noée Abita), as both navigate the minefields of romance and sexual actualisation. Guillaume is struggling with his feelings for boarding-school classmate Nicolas, a jock-ish type, while Charlotte’s seemingly strong relationship with her boyfriend Maxime suffers a shock when he suggests that a lifetime is perhaps too long a time to stay together… Lesage and his strong cast bring rare intimacy and thrilling vibrancy to a sometimes emotionally harsh story, and the director caps it with a bold coda that brings the meaning of the title into clear focus. This is filmmaking of the first rank.

    ‘A yearning, bruising vision… Lent human depth and texture by Lesage’s documentary background, this… is uncommonly tender, nervy coming-of-age storytelling… Cinematographer Nicolas Canniccioni… wields a distant, implacable gaze on scenes rife with movement and conflict, from sports practice to pillow fights to acts of unconscionable violence; Lesage’s filmmaking, with its unhurried editing and eerily echoing music cues, is in expert sympathy with his hovering, out-of-time protagonists… Lyrical and horrifying.’—Guy Lodge, Variety
