KVIFF CAPSULE REVIEWS by Alex Deleon   The competition film “Zabic Bobra" (To Kill a Beaver) by Polish director Jan Jakub Kolski is a grisly psychological drama that tries to show what it is like inside the head of a returning professional soldier who cannot readjust to everyday life. Kolski, 56, has been described as a master of Polish “magical realism” and is certainly one of the few directors of his generation who can be called an auteur. At his press conference Kolski said ...

IRON DOORS, an interview with Stephen Manuel

user
 IRON DOORS (2010), a new psychological thriller to make you think. About an investment banker with no name (we never get his name in this film so he’s a kind of Everyman investment banker) wakes up to find himself stuck inside a vault with no way out. ‘No food. No water. No way out.’ We experience his loneliness, hunger, thirst, frustration and even his hallucinations with him as he struggles to stay alive… or we are also left to wonder if he is even alive at all and maybe he has been ...

3D or 2D?

user
When it comes to the topic of 3D, I’m really not sure what to make of it - perhaps this is because it’s too early to make a judgement on it. I don’t love it and I don’t hate it. I didn’t enjoy Avatar but I did have fun watching the dire Pirana 3D. An upcoming cinema release of a 3D film never tends to excite me, however Iron Doors in 3D certainly has. We were originally going to screen it during Abertoir in 2D but director Stephen Manuel requested that we show it in 3D – which we...

„The City Below“ to open Oldenburg International Film Festival

user
Emotional, sensual and elegant are fitting ways to describe Christoph Hochhäusler’s “The City Below” (Unter dir die Stadt). In it he portrays a cold, male-dominated world, ruled by power and money. Nicolette Krebitz gives a convicing performance as a fun-loving wife of a banker, who turns her husbands capitalistic morals upside down. Christoph Hochhäusler (“Falscher Bekenner”, “Milchwald”) is fascinated by the parallel universe called “the banking system”, whose inhabitants s...

2010 berlinale: JUD SUESS resurrected

In German and Jewish themed film festivals the focus on the Third Reich and the Holocaust remains essential as expressed in the large number of features and documentaries screened on those topics. The New York Jewish Film Festival excelled earlier this year with documentaries like EINSATZGRUPPEN: THE DEATH BRIGADES (Michal Prazan) and FORGOTTEN TRANSPORTS: TO POLAND (Lukas Pribyl) or features like GRUBNER'S JOURNEY (Radu Gabrea) and PROTECTOR (Marek Najbrt). These films may differ in their cre...
