Alle anderen

Allemagne, 2009

Gitti est une femme non conventionnelle et spontanée. Elle passe tranquillement ses vacances d'été en Sardaigne, avec son ami Chris, un architecte introverti et peu sûr de lui. La rencontre avec un autre couple, plus âgé, va déstabiliser leur relation. Un regard d'une grande justesse sur les sentiments amoureux et la vie à deux.

Deux Bosniaques ayant fui leur pays pendant la guerre, un Musulman et un Serbe, se rencontrent par hasard sur une route déserte des Etats-Unis. Peu à peu, les blessures et les rancoeurs du passé ressurgissent, provoquant un affrontement sans merci. De magnifiques paysages glacés servent de cadre à cet ambitieux thriller psychologique.

Two immigrants from BiH, Hasan, a Bosniak, and Vuko, a Serb, left their country during the gruesome war in BiH in the 1990's, to look for happiness and a new life in America. On a fateful night, they met on a deserted road in central USA.

Forbidden Fruit

Finlande, 2009

Rachel et Mary, 18 ans, appartiennent à une communauté religieuse guidée par des règles très strictes. Mais Mary a envie de se maquiller, de boire de l'alcool, de danser et de rencontrer des garçons. Un jour, elle s'enfuit en ville. Rachel, plus raisonnable et posée, est chargée par la congrégation de la protéger. Un film sensible sur l'éducation et le choix.

Two 18-year old girls from a christian fundamentalist community flee to a city for a summer job. One of the girls, Maria, wants to see how the world is before going back home and getting married to a boy from the same community. She wants to try out things that are forbidden at home: Rhytm music, make up, kissing boys, dancing. The other girl, Raakel, is less adventurous and only wants to make sure Maria does return. The summer of temptations changes the life of one of the girls - for good.

Qui a peur du loup

République Tchèque, 2008

Il était une fois une petite fille qui s'appelait Terezka. Elle vivait heureuse avec ses parents. Mais comme cela arrive souvent dans les contes de fées, les choses de la vraie vie se déroulent tout autrement que prévu. Une histoire d'amour pour petits et grands racontée avec beaucoup de fantaisie et d'originalité.

Once upon a time there was a little girl name Terezka who loved to hear the story of Red Riding Hood and the big, bad wolf. Every evening her mother would be asked to read this fairy-tale to her, after which she would dream of walking through the grass-green woods wearing a bright red scarf on her head. And so Terezka lived happily with her parents and enjoyed going to kindergarten with her friend, Šimon ... But, as is so often with fairy-tales, in real life things sometimes turn out to be not at all as we expect.
