TURIN FILM FESTIVAL 30 COVERAGE: SU RE (COLUMBU) (ENG)

From a purely cinematic point of view and without taking into consideration the religious interpretation, Su Re is a film to watch. The innovative and alternative approach of the Gospels is another good reason to note that film. Columbu has remained faithful to the words of the book and this is another expression of his artistic formalism. He doesn’t try to impose his opinion and he is not dogmatic in his beliefs. Everyone is free to receive different messages or to just enjoy a detailed experimental work of art.

PALME D’OR CANNES 2012: AMOUR (MICHAEL HANEKE) (ENG)

Amour could be seen as a return to a more minimal Haneke but with the wealth of experience. In a scene where Anne, now unable to form coherent sentences, tries to sing along with Georges as he sings to her, it is at once heartbreaking and comforting to be witness to such an intimate and personal moment.

CORRISPONDENZA TORINO FILM FESTIVAL 30: ANITA DI LUCA MAGI (ITA)

Per la sua opera prima Luca Magi ha scelto di dare materia al testo che Fellini e Pinelli scrissero nel 1957, ripercorrendo i luoghi italiani cari al regista: Civita di Bagnoregio, Monterchi e Fano. Un’operazione sensibile che riporta la storia agli ambienti da cui proviene e la carica del calore tutto privato di cui pulsa.

TURIN FILM FESTIVAL 30 COVERAGE: AŽ DO MESTA AŠ (IVETA GRÓFOVÁ) (ENG)

All in all Made in Ash is an unconventional film that probably will gain attention only from the most demanding audience. This is an extremely interesting start that creates higher hopes for the future. If the viewer can overcome the initial fear of the raw reality then he can identify Grófová’s talent and her modernized vintage cinema.

CORRISPONDENZA TORINO FILM FESTIVAL 30: KEN JACOBS IN 3D – BLANKET FOR INDIANS & CYCLOPEAN 3D: LIFE WITH A BEAUTIFUL WOMAN (ITA)

Con l’ausilio del Nervous system, lo strumento che permette l’avanzamento graduale con lo scarto di un fotogramma di due pellicole gemelle attraverso obiettivi appena disallineati, Jacobs interviene analiticamente su di esse addivenendo alla terza dimensione.

TURIN FILM FESTIVAL 30 COVERAGE: AM HIMMEL DER TAG (BECK) (ENG)

Am Himmel Der Tag is a true contemporary film that examines real issues that the 20-something generation faces today. Beck seems to be affected by the Berliner Schule but only in the field of her content. Technically she has a quite different approach; it is eye-catching and vivid. She seems even from her first film to be able to strike her audience with a true issue in a realistic way.

TORINO FILM FESTIVAL 30 CORRISPONDENZA: LEVIATHAN DI VÉRÉNA PARAVEL, LUCIEN CASTAING-TAYLOR (ITA)

Leviathan si apre bruscamente, a cose fatte, sulle carrucole e le reti tirate su, svuotate e rilanciate in mare mediante le riprese concitate e sporche di una camera che passa di mano in mano, da pescatore a pescatore in una soggettiva plurima alterata dall’ansia del lavoro umano, dallo sforzo dell’azione spesso a riprendere oggetti di cui non si comprendono i confini, le fattezze, imbruniti dalla notte e umidi di salsedine e acqua

TURIN FILM FESTIVAL 30 COVERAGE: AGE IS… (DWOSKIN) (ENG)

The personal Dwoski’s De Senectute is a jewel in the contemporary reflection on the topic. Slight and affectionate, only apparently linear, AGE IS … is the expression of the author’s knowledge about old age, matured and developed on the basis of the essay La vieillesse by Simone de Beauvoir.

TORINO FILM FESTIVAL 30 CORRISPONDENZA: AGE IS… (DWOSKIN) (ITA)

Il personalissimo De senectute di Dwoskin è un gioiello nella riflessione contemporanea sul tema. Lievissimo e affettuoso, lineare solo all’apparenza, AGE IS… è l’espressione della consapevolezza dell’autore circa la vecchiaia, maturata e sviluppata sulla scorta del saggio La vieillesse di Simone de Beauvoir.
