Films in ‘IFFR Live’
Blue My MindLisa Brühlmann IFFR 2018 97′
Swiss teenagers say jawohl to MDMA in this disturbing coming-of-age story that cleverly mixes horror and psychological drama. Insecure Mia enters the jungle that is puberty in search of belonging and her blossoming sexuality. Kafka's Metamorphosis meets The Little Mermaid.
NinaOlga Chajdas IFFR 2018 130′
Masterful and sensuous drama about thirty something Nina, who is looking for a surrogate mother for the child she and her longtime husband desperately long for. Young, independent Magda looks like a suitable candidate. But everything changes when Nina unexpectedly gets attracted to her. A turbulent love story with a strong vibe.
Nico, 1988Susanna Nicchiarelli IFFR 2018 93′
Sound, loving and above all honest biopic about Nico, more than twenty years after Andy Warhol and The Velvet Underground. Trine Dyrholm (Kollektivet, Festen) is stunning as the artiste who always has to carry the ballast from the past with her, but continues to believe in the possibilities of a new start.
AmateursGabriela Pichler IFFR 2018 100′
A slick marketing film or two teenagers messing with a smartphone and selfie sticks: how do you pitch the colourless Swedish town of Lafors as best candidate for the new branch of discount store Superbilly? The tragicomic Amateurs by Gabriela Pichler (Eat Sleep Die) shows that a slick picture is less interesting than threadbare reality.
