Reykjavik - RotterdamOskar Jonasson IFFR 2010 90′
Icelandic smuggling film with clumsy gangsters (without weapons), a high tempo, smooth soundtrack, offbeat humour - and Dutch actor Victor Löw as wrought-up and trigger-happy gangster in Rotterdam. Adapted from a book by Iceland's most famous crime novelist, Arnaldur Indridason, who co-wrote the screenplay. A Hollywood remake is in the pipeline, with Mark Wahlberg in the leading role.
ContentChris Petit IFFR 2010 77′
Thirty years ago, Chris Petit directed Radio On, now considered a road movie cult classic. His latest film, Content, is an ambient 21st-century road movie, an associative film essay inspired by driving’s trancelike state rather than any linear unfolding of the road.
HadewijchBruno Dumont IFFR 2010
A young novice is thrown out of the nunnery and leaves with an Arab for the Middle East in order to sacrifice herself for her God. Bruno Dumont's Hadewijch is not interested in a specific conflict or a specific religion, but in the psychology of fanaticism.
