21 nuits avec PattieArnaud Larrieu, Jean-Marie Larrieu IFFR 2016 115′
Caroline arrives in a village in the Pyrenees for her mother's funeral. Unexpectedly, the corpse has gone missing. In the good company of Pattie, Caroline spirals into detective riddles and erotic awakening. A superbly acted, witty, magical ‘Midsummer Night’s sex comedy’.
A Copy of My MindJoko Anwar IFFR 2016 121′
The experienced writer-filmmaker Joko Anwar is still young but certainly knows what you can and cannot show in an Indonesian film. He seems to be seeking censorship problems, but that fits in well with this cheeky story about love, DVDs, crime, corruption and politics. A little pornographic.
The Other SideRoberto Minervini IFFR 2016 92′
The seamy side of the American dream is exposed in this intimate portrait of people who have been forgotten by society in the deep south of the not-so-United States: drug addicts Mark and Lisa and their fellows, plus the members of an armed militia. Fuck Obama!
EndorphineAndré Turpin IFFR 2016 84′
A hypnotic mix of dream, nightmare and mystery, in which the lives of three women going by the name of Simone are linked together through time and space. The starting point is a terrible murder in a car park, after which a beautifully filmed puzzle unfolds, continuously turning in circles.
