So Long Enthusiasm

Vladimir Durán Argentinië, 2017

Nu Vertoond
15 dagen om te kijken

Elke familie heeft huisregels. Met sporen van Martel en Lanthimos is So Long Enthusiasm zeker geheimzinnig te noemen. Dit duizelingwekkende debuut daagt onze normen uit door te spelen met dynamiek, claustrofobie en surrealisme.

The Rise and Fall of a Small Film Company

Jean-Luc Godard Zwitserland, 1986

Nu Vertoond
22 dagen om te kijken

Een Godard-film met Jean-Pierre Léaud waarvan je niet wist dat deze bestond? Ja! Oorspronkelijk gemaakt voor Franse televisie—en slechts eenmaal per 30 jaar uitgezonden—dit is een ode aan de B-kant van showbizz. Een nieuwe restauratie heeft dit juweel uit ’86 het leven gegeven dat het verdient.

Casa Roshell

Camila José Donoso Mexico, 2017

6 dagen geleden verlopen

If there’s a word that encapsulates Donoso’s approach to the transgender community of Casa Roshell, that is empathy. Echoing the utopic, non-judgemental atmosphere of the idiosyncratic club, her camera allows people to be who they want to be. A dreamy celebration of identity, an oasis of freedom.

The Dreamed Path

Angela Schanelec Duitsland, 2016

Verlopen

We close our Angela Schanelec focus with the online premiere of her latest film, The Dreamed Path. Through Bressonian fragmentation, the Berlin School auteur delivers a puzzling, elliptical anti-love story, and keeps challenging our notion of narrative with her radical, quietly masterful filmmaking.

The Nothing Factory

Pedro Pinho Portugal, 2017

Verlopen

A powerhouse debut with an ambitious subject—the throes of European capitalism—dramatized with practical and engrossing storytelling. We see a labor dispute in all its detail of passion and conflict—drama that attracts drama, and even a song! A tremendous evocation of the struggle to work and live.

The Night I Swam

Damien Manivel, Igarashi Kohei Frankrijk, 2017

Verlopen
Beschikbaar om te huren
Play button Huur het voor $5.99

Joining the pantheon of great childhood films, Manivel and Igarashi’s Japan-set miniature is a disarmingly tender (and funny!) tale of adventures that plays with the perception of time and space, putting us in the shoes (snow boots!) of a six-year-old. An ode to solitude, without the need of words.

Bright Nights

Thomas Arslan Duitsland, 2017

Verlopen

Berlin School veteran Thomas Arslan’s return to the German festival’s competition is a majestic yet intimate father-son road movie. With unassuming minimalism and a breathtaking use of landscape, Arslan charts both a geographical and an emotional journey infused with serene, affecting melancholy.

Untitled

Michael Glawogger, Monika Willi Oostenrijk, 2017

Verlopen

“The most beautiful film I could imagine is one which would never come to rest," said Michael Glawogger of this epic, free-floating documentary project—but malaria struck him down during shooting. Monica Willi, his and Haneke’s editor, crafted the final, global vision, made of extraordinary footage.

A Decent Woman

Lukas Valenta Rinner Argentinië, 2016

Verlopen

Nodding to Greek Weird Wave’s godfather Lanthimos and Austrian provocateur Seidl, Valenta Rinner finds a voice of his own depicting Argentina’s class tensions in this hilariously deadpan social satire. A perfect blend of mordant humour, formal meticulousness, eccentric anarchy and nudist tableaux.

Self-Criticism of a Bourgeois Dog

Julian Radlmaier Duitsland, 2017

Verlopen

Communism, filmmaking, and the male gaze—Julian Radlmaier’s fantastical debut entirely lives up to (and delivers on) its astounding title. With welcome flourishes of humor, unreality and an incisive critique of political filmmaking, it resembles what a young Buñuel would have made of today’s Europe.

Ava

Léa Mysius Frankrijk, 2017

Verlopen

One of the best debuts of the year lands on MUBI! Premiering in Cannes in May, Mysius’ beguiling exploration of female sexuality and teenage fears is a life-affirming, infectious blend of ravishing colors, whimsical humor and the dreamy melancholy of a transformative summer. Bonus: that soundtrack!

Antiporno

Sion Sono Japan, 2016

Verlopen
Beschikbaar om te huren
Play button Huur het voor $3.99

Following Wet Woman on the Wind, we bring you the latest Nikkatsu Roman Porno reboot. Genre-bending Japanese provocateur Sono Sion (Love Exposure) flips his assignment on its head, transforming his softcore film into a candy-colored, fourth-wall-breaking exposé of the sex (and art) industry.

Wet Woman in the Wind

Akihiko Shiota Japan, 2016

Verlopen
Beschikbaar om te huren
Play button Huur het voor $3.99

Nikkatsu is rebooting its legendary Roman Porno series, giving different directors creative freedom in exchange for thriftiness and a healthy dose of sex. The first of these softcore art films (or arty softcore films, if you wish!), is Akihiko Shiota’s slapstick comedy, a breezily playful delight.

Under Electric Clouds

Aleksei German Ml. Rusland, 2015

Verlopen

A grandiose vision of Russia’s future (in fact, 2017!) by Aleksei German Jr., son of the legendary director Aleksei German (Hard to Be a God). As with Zvyagintsev’s Leviathan, a building takes on epic new meaning as different people’s stories whirl around its totemic hulk in this audacious drama.

A German Youth

Jean-Gabriel Périot Frankrijk, 2015

Verlopen

De film die opent met Godard en sluit met Fassbinder moet wel een strijbare ziel hebben. Zonder audio-vertelling blijft deze collage van verbluffende archiefbeelden uit naoorlogs Duitsland alsnog een indrukwekkende, meeslepende overpeinzing over radicalisatie, wat vandaag de dag ook relevant is.

One Floor Below

Radu Muntean Roemenië, 2015

Verlopen

In dit subtiele en observerende drama wordt een moord verstopt onder het tapijt van het dagelijks leven in Roemenië. Een man probeert zijn normale routine op te pakken terwijl een dood in zijn flatgebouw schuld, argwaan en geheimen oproept. Door Roemeense New Wave regisseur Radu Muntean.

The Future Perfect

Nele Wohlatz Argentinië, 2016

Verlopen

It’s not very often that a film is smart and modest at the same time. German-born, Argentina-based Nele Wohlatz has made an impossibly humble comedy, unassumingly clever and irresistibly warm, so empathetic in capturing what being a foreigner feels like that will restore your hope in humanity.

Hello Destroyer

Kevan Funk Canada, 2016

Verlopen

Canada is amidst a renaissance of refreshing movies by a new wave of directors. Told with a bold disaffected style recalling Michael Haneke, this debut is at the forefront. Hello Destroyer is an intimate portrait of a young hockey player and an incisive reflection on institutionalized violence.

Brooks, Meadows and Lovely Faces

Yousry Nasrallah Egypte, 2016

Verlopen

Egyptian auteur Yousry Nasrallah deftly weaves between drama, comedy and subtle political insight in this warm and colorful social tapestry. Romantic, business and sexual relationships swirl around a wedding, a grand, music and food-filled event touching all types of people, wealthy and working.

The Event

Sergei Loznitsa Nederland, 2015

Verlopen

Sergei Loznitsa has made an astounding documentary from restored footage of the dramatic cavalcade of events during the collapse of the Soviet Union 26 years ago this month: government dissolution, Gorbachev gone missing, and a coup d’etat. Like today, we only know what is presented to the public.

Eldorado XXI

Salomé Lamas Frankrijk, 2016

Verlopen

Not only a stunning ethnographic portrait of a community and landscape, Eldorado XXI is also a haunting, immersive experience—a trance that blends the grandeur of a mythical land with the shadow of colonialism, blurring the limits of cinematic narrative. Please watch on the biggest screen you can.

Scarred Hearts

Radu Jude Roemenië, 2016

Verlopen

Romanian New Wave director Radu Jude follows up his award-winning Aferim! with this wry adaptation mixing an author’s writings with his life. Shooting his colorful 35mm production in playfully old fashioned 4:3, this ode to an ingenious and poetic soul is a delightful mix of melancholy and humor.

Le Moulin

Huang Ya-li Taiwan, 2015

Verlopen

With remarkable variety of form and a graceful touch, this expansive yet tremendously sensitive debut by Huang Ya-li is an epic and detailed immersion into a remarkable group of writers in Taiwan. Spanning three decades of political turmoil and war, we movingly watch their struggle to create art.

Over the Years

Nikolaus Geyrhalter Oostenrijk, 2015

Verlopen

Acclaimed documentarian Nikolaus Geyrhalter returned to Waldviertel for 10 years to film this one-of-a-kind, sprawling portrait of a region transformed year after year by economic turmoil. You powerfully get to know these people literally across time as they deal with wages and aging.

John From

João Nicolau Portugal, 2015

Verlopen

João Nicolau has become one of the main voices of contemporary Portuguese cinema, next to the likes of Miguel Gomes or João Pedro Rodrigues. This dreamy coming-of-age tale of both epic and intimate proportions—just like first love—is a truly original, enchanting ode to adolescence and fantasy.

Rouge

Antoine Barraud Frankrijk, 2015

Verlopen

Our second Special Discovery is a never-before-seen version of Antoine Barraud’s Berlinale-fêted Le dos rouge. Wander in Paris’ mesmerizing museums in Bertrand Bonello’s company, which Sarah Winchester’s director roams in search of monstrosity, sharing the screen with some of France’s finest actors.

Sarah Winchester, Phantom Opera

Bertrand Bonello Frankrijk, 2016

Verlopen

This month’s Special Discovery duo is a pairing with French auteur Bertrand Bonello (Saint Laurent, Nocturama), first behind the camera and then in front. They are also films that approach and integrate other arts: here, a gorgeous, mysterious sketch towards a dark opera rich in dance and music.

Between Fences

Avi Mograbi Israël, 2016

Verlopen

How can a migrant tell his or her story? Documentarian Avi Mograbi has come together with theater director Chen Alon to collaborate with detainees in Israel not only to document their treatment but to work together using Theater of the Oppressed methods to dramatize their incredible experiences.

Silvered Water, Syria Self-Portrait

Ossama Mohammed, Wiam Bedirxan Frankrijk, 2014

Verlopen

“1001 images of Syria, shot by 1001 Syrians,” says Mohammed, an exile in Paris following the traces of his country’s war found online. Later, Kurdish director Wiam Simav Bedirxan sends him footage from Homs. An immensely powerful and moving correspondence between exile and home, images and reality.

The Park

Damien Manivel Frankrijk, 2016

We are proud to present our first Special Discovery—bringing you gems direct from the world’s best film festivals—the second film by emerging French director Damien Manivel. A minimalist romance charting an entire teenage relationship over the course of a day, by night things turn phantasmagoric.
