Films in ‘tiger competition’
1/2 MieteMarc Ottiker IFFR 2003
This paranoid cyber-thriller shifts into something completely bizarre and moving. A hacker on the run slips into people's apartments during their absence. Relationships between the man without an ID and de residents start to develop.
ExtrañoSantiago Loza IFFR 2003 87′
Yet another major new talent from that surprising hot house for cinema: Argentina. A proudly 'intimiste' and small-scale work with great resonance with marvellous acting and fine direction. An older unemployed man meets a younger, pregnant woman. They tentatively move in together but nothing seems firm.
BodysongSimon Pummell IFFR 2003
An epic movie of the story of a human life, using found footage from the last 100 years of cinema, scored by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead.
Journey of the Grey MenAmir Shahab Razavian IFFR 2003
Yet another major talent appears on the stage of the Iranian cinema, with an eye for images and an ear for music. Quirky and ironic, touching and endearingly self-conscious, the story of three old musicians and puppeteers who set off on a long journey across Iran, performing en route and re-discovering old friends.
