Cineclassics Kiesloswki exhibition

user
CINECLASSICS: KIESLOWSKI EXHIBITION             "It gives me the creeps, and I have an impression that somebody is speaking through Kieslowski" , said Robert de Niro in 1989. Krzysztof Kieslowski’s films have had huge impacts all over the world, and right at the time of the Central European regime changes. Signs and Memories, the joint exhibition of CineClassics and the Polish Institute in Budapest, is going to be held in the House of Arts, Miskolc (Rákóczi u. 5.) and...

All we need is love

user
27 July: Day 3 As it is still raining in KZN, it's perfect movie weather! The two films on my plate today have the same theme, love, although they are as different as night and day. These two films will not be money spinners, although Tom Tykwer's Drei (Three) could get some bums on seats. Snowflower and the secret fan will only appeal to a small audience, although it is a beautifully made, tender film with heart. Both films were bought by big studios, Fox Searchlight and Warner, bu...

Durban Fest: From Nigeria to Iran

user
Durban, 26 July: Day 2 The miserable weather is busy getting the better of me as I spent most of the day in bed. As I am in Durban for the film festival at great expense, I dragged myself out of bed for the night's delights. I planned to see Dog Sweat at 22:00, but decided to rather skip that. The two films that were shown tonight are both in competition and both are good - one is exceptional, in fact. It's good to see young African directors at the festival and Andrew Dosunmu...

DREI in Copenhagen

user
  DREI (2010), the new German film by celebrated director Tom Tykwer screened in Copenhegen at the international film festival 2011. The story of a threesome that is a twosome in three ways. Dining with Tykwer and speaking to him after seeing the film, all I could say was: 'Wow!'. Images of ancient androgynous symbols together with remembrances of breakthrough concepts by Jung crowded my brain and I was inspired, to say the least. I explained to Tom how I loved that the fi...

Tom Tykwer, Drei and Venezia 2010

My last night in Venice for the 67th La Biennale Venice FIlm Festival was spent with the filmmakers of the new German film by celebrated director Tom Tykwer, Drei (2010), the story of a threesome that is a twosome in three ways. Dining with Tykwer and speaking to him after seeing the film, all I could say was: 'Wow!'.

There are at least half a dozen daily newspapers that come out every day in Berlin and it is easy to see which personalities are the flavors of the day just by glancing at the pictures that adorn the front pages every day here during the festival.

Tom Tykwer and Kees Kasander explore virtual worlds These days, no other stories do as well in the cinemas as stories set in fantastical worlds or that take audiences on a journey into the past. Elaborate adventure-fantasy films like The Lord of the Rings and Eragon and opulent historical epic dramas like Perfume: The Story of a Murderer and Kingdom of Heaven are among the biggest box-office winners. A similar development can be observed in the gaming world. Here, online role-playing games are...
