Po dolgem času hotel spet deluje s polno kapaciteto, vendar pa banka zahteva poravnavo dolgov in zaposleni pripravljajo stavko prav v času, ko prihajajo častni gostje. Če večer propade, bo propadel tudi hotel. Direktor hotela skuša preprečiti stavko s pomočjo mafijca, ki upravlja striptiz bar v kleti, istočasno pa se v improviziranem televizijskem studiu odvija poseben program, posvečen stoletnici sarajevskega atentata. Dogajanje prekine neobičajen gost: Gavrilo Princip. -Kolosej

[ENG]


Sarajevo on 28 of June, 2014. At the Hotel Europa, the best hotel in town, the manager Omer prepares to welcome a delegation of diplomatic VIPs. On the centenary of the assassination that is considered to have led to World War I, an appeal for peace and understanding is supposed to start from here. But the hotel staff have other worries: having not been paid for months, they are planning to go on strike. Hatidza from the hotel laundry is elected strike leader even though her daughter Lamija, who works in reception, is firmly against industrial action. Meanwhile, in the sealed-off presidential suite, a guest from France rehearses a speech. Elsewhere, a television reporter conducts interviews about war and its consequences. Was Gavrilo Princip, the 1914 assassin, a criminal or a national hero? What long shadow does his deed cast into the present?
Danis Tanović, whose An Episode in the Life of an Iron Picker screened in Competition at the Berlinale in 2013, offers a satirical parable about political dreams and nightmares. His Hotel Europa, which he portrays from its cellar passageways right up to its sunlit roof terrace, becomes an arena of hope, violence and death. -Berlinale

[ENG]


In a ghetto near Paris where drugs and religion reign supreme, Dounia is hungry for her share of power and success. Enlisting the help of her best friend, Maimouna, she decides to follow the footsteps of a respected dealer. When Dounia meets a young sensuous dancer, another window opens for her through which she glimpses the promise of a very different kind of life.


******************

Divines, written and directed by French-Moroccan filmmaker Houda Benyamina, rivals "Girlhood" as a portrait of combustible banlieue femininity, emanating raw energy and scrappy good humor even as it builds to an unexpectedly tragic and horrifying finale. - Mike D'Angelo, The A.V. Club

Via Liffe


Ganljiva brazilska drama z razorožujočo toplino raziskuje pomen spola in biološke družine v človekovem življenju.

Sedemnajstletni Pierre je sredi pubertete. Igra v glasbeni skupini, na zabavah seksa z dekleti, doma pa se skrivaj oblači v ženska oblačila in pred ogledalom občuduje svoj naličeni obraz. Z mamo in mlajšo sestro živi lagodno, dokler se mu vse ne postavi na glavo, ko nekega dne odkrije, da je bil ob rojstvu ukraden iz porodnišnice. Mamo zaprejo in Pierre spozna svoja biološka starša, ki sta ga vsa ta leta obupano iskala, zdaj pa se na vse pretege trudita nadoknaditi zamujeno. A Pierre, sedaj Felipe, se v novi družini ne znajde najbolje. Še več, občutek ima, da so ga že drugič "ukradli" ...

"Filmski svet je kočljiv za vsakogar. Moške, ženske, Brazilce, Američane. Je ena najbolj nevarnih industrij sveta, saj je umetnost in posel obenem. /…/ Kompleksen je za vse. Moj nasvet: ustvarjaj, pokaži svoje delo drugim, zastavljaj vprašanja. Navsezadnje je rezultat tisto, kar šteje, s kulturo mačizma ali brez nje." 
-Anna Muylaert

Potem ko se po mnogih letih vnovič srečata na službeni poti v Parizu, nekdanja ljubimca skupaj pobegneta. Čez Francijo se podata z vlakom, avtomobilom in motociklom, od Normandije do St. Tropeza. Med brezskrbno avanturo doživljata trenutke blažene sreče in nedolžnega veselja, a jih grenijo tudi prebliski občutkov krivde in zmede. Zaključek ljubezenske zgodbe je prepuščen razlagi vsakega gledalca posebej. -HBO Slovenija

[ENG]


FOR LOVERS ONLY is a story of a MAN and a WOMAN in love. After seeing each other for the first time in years while on separate work assignments in Paris, the LOVERS flee together and travel by train, car and motorcycle, as their love affair takes them across France-from Normandy to St. Tropez. Throughout their trip, both characters experience long periods of carefree bliss and unrepentant joy punctuated by brief moments of guilt and confusion. The final outcome of the affair is left open to interpretation. This picture is a study and meditation on two LOVERS. A picture that practices restraint and embraces limitation-that allows the viewer to hold no judgement on the LOVERS behavior, but to accept these two and their passion for one another as something beautiful and rare. Snippets of information begin to reveal who these two are, but it's not enough to judge them. It's the viewer's participation that creates the intrigue as the screenplay delicately weaves vital information about the LOVERS into the narrative thread. Shot in two weeks on a whirlwind tour through the most romantic Old World cities of Europe-FOR LOVERS ONLY is inspired by Claude Lelouche's A MAN AND A WOMAN encapsulates the spirit of the French New Wave. This approach allowed the Polish Brothers to get to the heart of storytelling. It's bare, simple and complicated at times, where every word counts-every moment meaningful-not a breath wasted. -Rotten Tomatoes

After serving time for the attempted murder of a District Attorney, disgraced former cop Joe Denton returns home looking for redemption. An embarrassment to his parents and abandoned by his ex-wife, it seems as if things can't get much worse. But then Joe finds himself trapped in the mess he left behind-in the cross fire between a crooked sheriff, the vengeful DA, and a mafia kingpin who knows too much. Delightfully suspenseful and blackly comic, "Small Crimes" follows Joe's desperate and misguided attempts to extract himself from this nightmare, only to dig himself into a deeper-and bloodier-hole.

[ENG]


Already struggling to survive in the modern economy, a small Czech town is hit by tragedy in this sprawling mystery miniseries from the team behind Agnieszka Holland’s Burning Bush.

In the recent renaissance of television programming coming from Eastern Europe, it seems that each new series is better than the last. The trend continues with the Czech thriller Wasteland.

Set in a small town in northern Bohemia, Wasteland tells the story of a coal mining village torn apart by greed and secrets. Crushed by financial problems, with their tiny and vulnerable economy on the brink of collapse, the town's residents are faced with a difficult dilemma — whether to sell their homes to a coal company that wants the natural resources underground, or stick it out in a near-hopeless situation. At the centre of it all is an ambitious mayor who seeks to hold true to their way of life. But it isn't long before strange events start occurring. First the locals find dead animals hanging from trees... and then the mayor's daughter goes missing. The town embarks on a search, but they'll find something other than what they're looking for: long-buried truths tucked away in the deepest, darkest parts of the woods.
