[ENG]


The film is set in Arnhem Land, in a time before Western contact, and tells the story of a group of ten men hunting goose eggs. The leader of the group, Minygululu, tells the young Dayindi (Jamie Gulpilil) a story about another young man even further back in time who, like Dayindi, coveted his elder brother's youngest wife. The sequences featuring Dayindi and the hunt are in black and white, while shots set in distant past are in colour. All protagonists speak in indigenous languages of the Yolŋu Matha language group, with subtitles. The film is narrated in English by David Gulpilil, although versions of the film without narration, and featuring narration in Yolŋu Matha, are also available.

Minygululu tells a story of the great warrior Ridjimiraril, who suspects a visiting stranger of kidnapping his second wife. In a case of mistaken identity, Ridjimiraril kills a member of a neighbouring tribe. To prevent all-out war, tribal laws dictate that the offending tribe allow the offender to be speared from a distance by the tribe of the slain man. The offender is allowed to be accompanied by a companion, and he takes his younger brother. Whenever one of the two is hit, the spear-throwers will stop, and justice will have been served. Ridjimiraril is hit and mortally wounded but survives long enough to return to his camp, where he is tended to by his eldest wife. After he finally succumbs, the elder brother's kidnapped second wife finds her way back to the camp. She reveals that she had been kidnapped by a different tribe, much farther away and had taken this long to return. She mourns her lost husband, who had attacked the wrong tribe, though now she and the elder wife take his younger brother as their new husband. The younger brother, who was only interested in the youngest of the three wives, now has to care for all of them, and satisfying their many and constant demands is much more than he bargained for.

Minygululu tells this story in the hope that Dayindi learns of the added responsibilities of a husband and elder statesman in the tribe, and in the end we see Dayindi withdrawing from his pursuit of Minygululu's young wife. -Via Wikipedia

Via Kinodvor


Newcastle, Velika Britanija. Devetinpetdesetletni Daniel Blake, ki je vse življenje delal kot tesar, zaradi zdravstvenih težav zdaj prvič potrebuje pomoč države. Spoprijatelji se s Katie, mlado materjo samohranilko z dvema otrokoma, ki ji v mestu ravno dodelijo socialno stanovanje. Daniel in Katie se znajdeta v birokratskem labirintu socialnih institucij, za katere se zdi, da v vseh prosilcih za pomoč vidijo le prevarante in lenuhe.

Ken Loach, neutrudni kronist delavskega razreda, se vrača z značilno strastnim in brezkompromisnim filmom o moči sočutja in solidarnosti v boju proti birokratski brezbrižnosti sistema. Veteranski režiser, ki je danes aktualen kot še nikoli, je z zadnjega festivala v Cannesu odnesel svojo drugo zlato palmo.



Izhodišče je bila zgodba o ljudeh, ki skušajo preživeti. A liki in situacije morajo biti utemeljeni v resničnem življenju. Če pogledamo dovolj pozorno, lahko vidimo, kako premišljeno kruta je država pri zagotavljanju socialne podpore ljudem, ki jo tako obupno potrebujejo, in kako uporablja birokracijo – njeno namerno neučinkovitost – kot politično orožje: 'To se ti bo zgodilo, če ne boš delal; če ne boš našel dela, boš trpel.' Jeza, ki smo jo ob tem čutili, je bila motiv za film. /…/ Koncept je znan večini izmed nas: gre za frustracijo in črno komedijo, ki prideta na dan ob spopadanju z birokracijo. Ta je tako izrazito nesmiselna, tako očitno zasnovana z namenom, da nas spravi ob živce. Če o tem spregovoriš iskreno in če znaš odnos ljudi na drugi strani mize ali telefona brati med vrsticami, bi se morala pokazati vsa komičnost, krutost in – navsezadnje – tragedija situacije. 'Revni so sami krivi za svojo revščino' – ta misel ščiti moč vladajočega razreda.[Ken Loach]

The Grump is a man from the past. A man who knows that everything used to be so much better in the old days.

He has to spend a weekend in Helsinki to attend physiotherapy. The Grump doesn't like this for four reasons: 1) He has to take a taxi. 2) He can't take daily care of his wife, an Alzheimer's patient. 3) He can't drive, which means he might have to sit in a car with a female driver. 4) He has to spend time with his family. The daughter-in-law is a career woman, not keen to spend time with The Grump when he comes to the city. Her boss has given her the task to look after Russian businessmen supposed to close a major deal over the weekend. It doesn't make her any happier when The Grump decides to help with the deal.

Novica o usodnem atentatu na ameriškega predsednika Johna F. Kennedyja je 22. novembra leta 1963 pretresla ameriško in svetovno javnost. V dneh, ki so sledili, so bili vsi pogledi uprti v Kennedyjevo vdovo, prvo damo Jacqueline Kennedy. Zgodba nas popelje v njen svet. Medtem ko se je z otroki spopadala s travmatično izgubo, bolečino in žalovanjem, je morala poskrbeti, da sta se zapuščina Kennedyjevega predsednikovanja in njegova javna podoba za vselej vtisnili v spomin.

Čilski režiser Pablo Larraín (Klub, Neruda) je z izjemno Natalie Portman v naslovni vlogi ustvaril pretresljiv, intimen in izviren film o enem najbolj prelomnih in tragičnih trenutkov ameriške zgodovine, v katerem atentat na Johna F. Kennedyja doživljamo skozi oči ikonične prve dame Jackie Kennedy. Najboljši scenarij na Beneškem filmskem festivalu.

Prva krogla je predsednika zadela v vrat, druga, ki je bila smrtonosna, je zdrobila desni del njegove lobanje. Kennedyjeva 34-letna soproga Jacqueline je sedela ob njem. Tik ob njem. Kako je to doživljala ona? Vsi poznamo zgodbo o Kennedyjevem atentatu. Toda kaj se zgodi, če se osredotočimo nanjo? Kaj je doživljala naslednje tri dni, ko se je z otroki utapljala v bolečini, medtem ko so bile oči vsega sveta uperjene vanjo? Jackie je bila kraljica brez krone, ki je na en mah izgubila prestol in moža. Jacqueline Kennedy, elegantna, sofisticirana in predmet poželenja, je bila ena najpogosteje fotografiranih žensk 20. stoletja. O njej so napisali na stotine knjig, posneli nešteto filmov in televizijskih serij. Pa vendar o njej vemo malo. Skrajno zadržana, zagonetna Jackie je čisto mogoče najbolj neznana znana osebnost našega časa. Rad si mislim, da je nikoli ne bomo povsem razvozlali. Nikoli ne bomo vedeli, kako je dišala ali kako so se ji ob pogovoru zaiskrile oči. Lahko le raziskujemo. In sestavimo film iz fragmentov, iz delnih spominov, krajev, idej, podob, ljudi. Kennedy je umrl mlad, njegove kratke predsedniške kariere je bilo nenadoma konec, njegovim dosežkom je grozila pozaba. Kljub ohromelosti zaradi lastne travme pa se je Jacqueline Kennedy zavedala, da mora nekdo dokončati njegovo zgodbo. V pičlih nekaj dneh je uspela iz moža napraviti legendo. Začrtala je njegovo javno podobo in utrdila njegovo zapuščino. Ob tem pa je tudi sama postala ikona, ki jo bo svet za vselej poznal preprosto kot Jackie. [Pablo Larraín]

Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband's assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a portrait of the First Lady as she fights to establish her husband's legacy and the world of "Camelot" that she created and loved so well.

[ENG]


Wild, sensual and utterly transporting, Brazilian writer-director Gabriel Mascaro's second fiction feature unfolds within the world of the vaquejada, a traditional exhibition sport in which cowboys try to pull bulls to the ground by their tails. Neon Bull explores the vaquejada through the eyes of Iremar (Juliano Cazarre), a handsome cowboy who works the events. While he's not afraid to get his hands dirty, Iremar's real dream is to design exotic outfits for dancers. [TIFF]

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


Sometimes you have to take the bull by the tail — which applies just as much to director Gabriel Mascaro’s seemingly backward approach to “Neon Bull” as it does to the bizarre Brazilian rodeo scene the film depicts, in which experienced riders do exactly that, flanking cattle from both sides and tugging them to the ground from behind. A time-honored tradition in the Brazilian northeast, “vaquejada” is arguably the region’s most macho sport (women aren’t allowed to participate), which makes Mascaro’s strategy of slyly challenging gender roles within this realm all the more intriguing. Premiering in Venice a mere year after his sultry, Locarno-launched “August Winds” marked him a talent to watch, “Neon Bull” similarly exudes hormones from every pore, sure to seduce many a festival with the helmer’s gift for frank sexuality and unforgettable imagery.

It seems a simple enough goal for any student: Find a quiet place to live and work, an oasis to center your mind and go about your business. And that’s all the eponymous Student (Pit Bukowski) at the center of  Nikias Chryssos’ debut feature wants. Just a quiet place. A safe place. Preferably a boring place. And he thinks he’s found it when he comes across a room for rent with a family living in a converted military bunker. With Mother, Father and young Klaus, all will surely be well. But things are not quite what the Student expects when he arrives.

[ENG]


Set against the antebellum South, THE BIRTH OF A NATION follows Nat Turner (Nate Parker), a literate slave and preacher, whose financially strained owner, Samuel Turner (Armie Hammer), accepts an offer to use Nat's preaching to subdue unruly slaves. As he witnesses countless atrocities - against himself and his fellow slaves - Nat orchestrates an uprising in the hopes of leading his people to freedom. -Fox Searchlight Pictures


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

What first should be said about The Birth Of A Nation, the feature filmmaking debut of director, writer, producer and star Nate Parker, is that it’s often an overly earnest biopic about 19th century Virginia slave Nat Turner. And what must then follow is an acknowledgment that such criticisms don’t matter so much in the face of this film’s ferocious moral anger. Dramatising how Turner’s slow awakening to the misery experienced by his fellow slaves led to a brief, bloody uprising, The Birth Of A Nation builds to that violent revolution with a slow burn that soon explodes with the force of a long-suppressed societal psychic wail. This may not be the most nuanced of films, but its blunt-force impact leaves one shaken.

Opis via Kinodvor:


Susan, lastnica uspešne losangeleške galerije, živi izjemno privilegirano, a neizpolnjeno življenje. Neki konec tedna, ko se njen soprog mudi na eni svojih prepogostih službenih poti, Susan prejme paket. V njem je rokopis romana Nočne ptice, ki ji ga pošilja bivši mož Edward. Ponoči, ko ne more spati, Susan začne z branjem. Roman je posvečen njej, vsebina pa je nadvse vznemirjujoča ...

Nočne ptice so temačen romantični triler, ki s stopnjujočo napetostjo raziskuje tanko mejo med ljubeznijo in krutostjo, med maščevanjem in odrešitvijo. Tom Ford je z drugim celovečercem upravičil visoka pričakovanja, ki jih je vzbudil s prvencem Samski moški, ter z Beneškega filmskega festivala odnesel veliko nagrado žirije.


Nočne ptice govorijo o tem, kako se moramo naučiti živeti z odločitvami, ki jih v življenju sprejmemo, in z njihovimi morebitnimi posledicami. V vedno bolj potrošniški kulturi, kjer je vse, vključno z našimi razmerji, tako lahko zavreči, sem želel povedati zgodbo o zvestobi, predanosti in ljubezni. To je zgodba o osamljenosti, ki jo vsi čutimo, in o tem, kako pomembno je ceniti osebne vezi, ki so nam v življenju v oporo. - Tom Ford

It also continues to follow the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself. [Imdb]

Opis via Kolosej:


Z oskarji nagrajeni režiser neizprosnih dram Tolpe New Yorka, Dvojna igra in Zlovešči otok predstavlja zgodbo o dveh portugalskih jezuitskih duhovnikih, ki se v 17. stoletju odpravita na Japonsko. Predstojnik jima naroči, naj najdeta njunega nekdanjega mentorja, ki je v deželi vzhajajočega sonca širil krščanstvo. Odkriti morata, če se je resnično odpovedal veri, ko so ga nasprotniki ujeli in mučili. V skrivnostni deželi, polni neznanih pravil in običajev, se mladeniča znajdeta sredi krvavega upora proti zadnji fevdalni vladavini šogunov.

Japonsko podeželje, 17. Stoletje. Šogunsko preganjanje kristjanov je v polnem zamahu. Misijonar Rodrigo (Andrew Garfield), mlad portugalski jezuit, raziskuje, kaj se je zgodilo z njegovim mentorjem in predhodnikom, očetom Ferreirom (Liam Neeson). Je res izrekel apostazijo in s tem izdal tako svoje temeljno, versko prepričanje kot tudi Cerkev v Rimu?

Zgodba tega nadvse napetega in pretresljivega »trilerja« temelji na resničnih zgodovinskih osebnostih, dogodkih in dejstvih. Roman je mojstrovina, ki je bila navdih za opero, simfonijo in sedaj še film. Molk je ep o japonskih misionarjih, o katerem je režiser Martin Scorsese sanjal skoraj 30 let, odkar je prebral knjigo. Zgodovinska drama ni prvi Scorsesejev film, v katerem je za podlago vzel knjigo z versko tematiko. Tak je bil tudi film Zadnja Kristusova skušnjava z Willemom Dafoejem v glavni vlogi iz leta 1988, posnet po knjigi Grka Nikosa Kazantzakisa iz leta 1951.

[ENG]


In this suspenseful war film that uses fear of the dark to great effect, an army contingent operating in Afghanistan is beset by mysterious disappearances. A French NATO patrol awaits its scheduled departure from their steel-plated Fort Apache base, bristling with high-tech gear. In one direction lies a village, a friendly but edgy place for them to be. On the other side is an area controlled by the little-seen Taliban. In between, sits a rock-strewn no-man’s land. While on a routine mission, two soldiers disappear. As the baffled French captain (compellingly played by Jérémie Renier) tries to figure out what happened, the Taliban send out a patrol in search of two of their own who have similarly vanished. The intensity climbs as further events transpire with no rational explanation. The men, now haunted by dreams, are close to panic, and the only clue to the odd occurrences is a supernatural tale spun by a village teenager. First-time director Clément Cogitore combines documentary-like realism with the seemingly paranormal to create a metaphor for the incongruities of contemporary war. The Wakhan no-man’s land is the abyss that imperious Westerners plunge themselves into when they are on soil that doesn’t belong to them. —Miguel Pendás

Hugo was eight when he went missing. When searches turn up nothing, his parents, Christophe and Irène split apart under the excruciating pressure of waiting. He moves to Mexico. She goes back to her career as an alto in an early music choir.

They live in their separate solitudes, haunted by Hugo's disappearance, until one day they get the news that human remains have been found. Everything indicates they are those of their son Hugo.
During their forced reunion in Montreal, they both handle the death of their child in their own way. Amid the guilt of losing a loved one, they haltingly move toward affirmation of life, acceptance of death and even the possibility of reconciliation.

Chorus is a love story that emerges from mourning and leads to two survivors clinging to each other as if to heal the deepest cut of all.

Thieu and his younger brother Tuong share and do everything together. Their days unfold like a whimsical and comical journey filled with innocence, wonder, confusion and curious adventures. Tuong idolizes his older brother’s confidence and constantly strives for his approval. But in fact, Thieu’s “over-confidence” is to compensate for his overwhelming insecurities. Thieu is constantly jealous of his younger brother when it comes to grades, talent and affection from the girl next door, Moon. This leads to an act of violence which leaves Tuong paralyzed and bedridden. In coming to terms with his own conscience, Thieu attempts to redeem himself and discovers the true meaning of brotherhood.

[ENG]


This Is England '90 looks at rave culture and the 1990 FIFA World Cup. It features Shaun, Kelly, Trev, Harvey and Gadget who are involved in the rave scene. Woody and Milky have opened a scooter shop, while Combo is released from prison after serving his sentence for the manslaughter of Mick in This Is England '86. Flip and Higgy from the moped gang in This Is England '86 are more prominently featured in the cast in this series.

Similar to the film and the two previous series, '90 featured a montage of the era at the beginning of the first episode, featuring the resignation of Margaret Thatcher in November 1990 which is set to the 1988 song "There She Goes" by The La's (which was re-released in October 1990). Each episode is set against a different season of the year starting with Spring.

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

As in real life although not wholly satisfying for drama, This Is England ’90 has been dominated by events from the characters’ past: the wicked deeds of Lol and Kellie’s father Mick, Combo’s attack on Milky. This has at times felt like a bit of a narrative cop out, and that there is nowhere left for the characters to go now.

Instead we have been asked, in the main, to sit back and enjoy Meadows’s gift for social observation, slipping into parody here and there, as in Woody’s sappy ex-girlfriend Jennifer’s (Stacey Sampson) absurd creation of a wedding planning scrapbook for him and Lol, but catching also the day-to-day poignancy of life, such as in the bumbling Gadget’s (Andrew Ellis) unrequited love for Kellie.

It seems that, with the main traumas of their lives with any luck behind them, Meadows shouldn’t bring this group of friends back to the screen again. But in the course of the three series he has extracted something epic from their apparently small existences – lives of dinner ladies, factory workers, the drug addicted and the unemployed that are normally way below the radar of most dramas. The vivid presence of Lol, Woody, Combo and their friends will be sorely missed. There’s been nothing quite like them. (Serena Davies, The Telegraph)

Via Kinodvor


Richard in Mildred se poročita iz globoke ljubezni. Toda piše se leto 1958 in virginijske državne oblasti nimajo posluha za rasno mešane zakone. Neke noči vdrejo v njun dom, ju spravijo za zapahe in nato izženejo iz države. Zakonca se zatečeta v Washington in sprožita sodni postopek proti zvezni državi Virginiji. Ko njun primer doseže vrhovno sodišče, postane jasno, da ne gre več samo za vprašanje njunega bivališča, temveč za pravice vseh rasno mešanih parov v ZDA.

Nežna oda ljubečemu paru, ki je sredi minulega stoletja s tihim uporom postavil nov mejnik boja za državljanske pravice v ZDA. Film, ki ga je po resničnih dogodkih posnel Jeff Nichols (Zaklonišče), je svetovno premiero doživel na festivalu v Cannesu. 



Ni dvoma, da bi že sodni primer sam po sebi lahko napolnil ves film. A želel sem posneti ljubezensko zgodbo in nisem hotel, da bi jo sodni primer preglasil. /.../ Dotaknila se me je prav ljubezen med dvema človekoma. Šele iz nje zraste drugi pomemben del zgodbe – odločitev vrhovnega sodišča. Menim, da je dragocen vsak trenutek, ki nas opozori na eleganco in preprosto lepoto ljubezni. /.../ Ko govorimo o enakosti in medrasnem zakonu, se ljudje zelo hitro skrijejo za svoja politična stališča, v ospredje stopi njihova ideologija, zatečejo se k posplošenim utemeljitvam, kar v resnici nima nobene zveze z vsakodnevno resničnostjo obravnavane tematike. Zakonca Loving sta resnična. Vsak dan vstaneta za zajtrk, vsak večer ležeta k počitku in poskušata ohraniti zvezo. Ko ju vidite, ni več o čem razpravljati. Kako bi sploh lahko oporekali temu razmerju? /.../ Lovingova nista bila niti nista želela postati mučenika. Nista bila in nista želela postati simbol. Bila sta le človeka, ki sta se ljubila in sta hotela biti drug z drugim in s svojo družino. - Jeff Nichols

Nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role (Ruth Negga). From acclaimed writer/director Jeff Nichols, Loving celebrates the real-life courage and commitment of an interracial couple, Richard and Mildred Loving (Joel Edgerton and Ruth Negga), who married and then spent the next nine years fighting for the right to live as a family in their hometown. Their civil rights case, Loving v. Virginia, went all the way to the Supreme Court, which in 1967 reaffirmed the very foundation of the right to marry – and their love story has become an inspiration to couples ever since.
