The 2008 International Watch List

21 December 2008 9:17 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

What is the international watch list you ask? In their own words it's "an unofficial list of the American film industry's favorite foreign feature and short films from the past year." which is compiled from over fifty Us film executives and their assistants who vote for five foreign features and shorts. Why are we sharing this with you? Well first off to show that there are some people in Hollywood who actually have some good taste in film (shocking, I know) and the other is that we've actually covered many of the films and shorts on this list, and in fact were the first news site (at least among the larger English film community) to bring you news of the top short film with 10 votes, Afterville, and two of the features on the list, Before the Fall and The Square. Not surprisingly, Let the right one in is the top »

Worth Watching - Dec 13: Lance Daly's Kisses Trailer

13 December 2008 5:07 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Thanks to Quiet Earth, we've got the official trailer for Kisses, an Irish film from Lance Daly. Kisses is a whimsical Irish fairy tale of sorts about two very young kids who run away from their parents and spend a night exploring the streets of Dublin, Ireland together. It's a very film festival-like film that I first saw at the Telluride Film Festival but didn't love, although Peter from SlashFilm found it quite entertaining. Daly has a really unique style, but I just didn't feel like it was too enduring. Anyway, this trailer might interest a few of you and was definitely worth featuring because it's an indie that deserves some attention. Enjoy! Watch the trailer for Lance Daly's Kisses: [flv:http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/kisses_trailer_large.flv http://media2.firstshowing.net/firstshowing/kisses_trailer_large.jpg 502 282] For more info, head to the official website for the film: kisses.ie Kisses is both written and directed by Irish filmmaker Lance Daly, of Last Days in »

Trailer for Lance Daly's Irish adventure Kisses

12 December 2008 4:54 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Finally there's a trailer available for Lance Daly's fantastic looking romp about 2 kids who run away from home to Dublin, and if our own cyberhal's review is any indication, I really can't wait to see this.

On the fringes of Dublin, Kylie and Dylan live in a suburban housing estate devoid of life, colour and prospects of escape. Following a violent altercation with his father, Dylan decides to run away from home with Kylie. Together, they embark to the magical nighttime lights of inner-city Dublin to search for Dylan's brother, and the possibility of a new life. As the night wears on, however, the two kids must somehow survive the darker side of Dublin.

Trailer after the break or watch the high-rez version at the official website.

AFI La 08: Review of Lance Daly's Irish adventure Kisses

9 November 2008 1:10 PM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

Year: 2008

Release date: Unknown

Director: Lance Daly

Writers: Lance Daly

IMDb: link

Trailer: N/A

Review by: cyberhal

Rating: 8.5 out of 10

Time for a slice of Irish life that the tourist posters won't show you. Lance Daly's powerful new feature is a beautifully shot account of two 11 year old runaways on the unforgiving streets of Dublin. Amazing performances by child actors Kelly O'Neill (Kylie) and Shane Curry (Dylan), the film features a strong folksy soundtrack, and is reminiscent of Ken Loach's work in a film like Kes. Following the advice of Mike Leigh, who saw the movie at the Toronto Film Festival, the director/writer/cinematographer Daly has added subtitles which helps anyone not from Dublin to understand the thick brogue. When Kisses won best feature film at the Galway Film Festival this year, Focus Features acquired the rights, and with any luck it will pick up the »

Tiff 08: Kisses

9 September 2008 | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

- Among the films I was curious to catch was the Dublin-set escapist drama of Kylie and Dylan. Kisses might sound like something cute and fuzzy, but Lance Daly is quick to remind his characters that the outside world may be just as unforgiving as everything that takes place on home turf. Daly has been traveling around quite a lot with his third feature film, after an preem at Locarno, he had a stint at Telluride before hitting Tiff. He brought along the film's two actors -- Kelly O'Neill and Shane Curry who bears some resemblance to a young version of the main character in Sweet Sixteen. The three spared on stage, showing that Daly's casting process didn’t care too much for dramatic art school types, hard to find at the age. Personally, I'd never seen Daly's other work but was still curious about a project that places child »

First clip for Lance Daly's Irish adventure Kisses

20 August 2008 1:13 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

This is one of the films we're really excited about, beautifully shot and just coming off Locarno and heading to Tiff, Lance Daly's Kisses looks like a winner. "On the fringes of Dublin, Kylie and Dylan live in a suburban housing estate devoid of life, colour and prospects of escape. Following a violent altercation with his father, Dylan decides to run away from home with Kylie. Together, they embark to the magical nighttime lights of inner-city Dublin to search for Dylan's brother, and the possibility of a new life. As the night wears on, however, the two kids must somehow survive the darker side of Dublin." There's no trailer yet, but the first clip is following!

Tiff announces more titles for Vanguard, Visions and Discovery

14 August 2008 3:56 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The Toronto International Film Festival has announced a whole load of films, including many world premiers, to be added as part of their lineups. Some of the more interesting looking ones are Lance Daly's Kisses about two Irish kids who run away from home and deal with the dark underside of Dublin. Another film I'm definitely interested in is Scott McGehee and David Siegel's Uncertainty which stars one of my personal favorites, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. It's about a couple in love who find out she's pregnant and they flip a coin from where it apparently follows both possible storylines, but with the same disastrous consequences. Also screening will be Fabrice du Welz's Vinyan (trailer here) which is about a couple who lost their son in a Tsunami and won't give up looking for him. In the Discovery program, the stop-motion animation $9.99 which is about a man seeking the meaning to life. »

'Brideshead Revisited' opening Locarno

16 July 2008 9:08 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Rome -- Julian Jarrold's "Brideshead Revisited" will open the 61st Locarno Film Festival, highlighting a lineup that will see nearly two dozen world premieres screen in the festival's historic Piazza Grande or in the main competition.

"Brideshead" -- a European premiere -- is a World War II drama based on the Evelyn Waugh novel and starring Matthew Goode as Capt. Charles Ryder. It screens Aug. 6.

The world premiere of Solveig Anspach's Franco-Icelandic comedy "Back Soon" will close the lakeside festival Aug. 16.

In between, the Piazza Grande lineup will unspool Marco Siega's comedic drama "Chaos Theory," Clark Gregg's comedy "Choke," Denis Rabaglia's romantic drama "Marcello, Marcello" and Garth Jennings' "Son of Rambow," which was scheduled to screen in Locarno in 2007 but pulled because of a legal dispute.

The Piazza Grande selection continues the trend of accessible fare screening in Europe's largest outdoor cinema venue under third-year artistic director Frederic Maire, as opposed to the more weighty and cerebral productions that screened there in the past.

The 17-film international competition lineup, meanwhile, is made up entirely of world and international premieres.

The complete competition lineup follows:

"Back Soon," Solveig Anspach, Iceland/France

"Retouches," Georges Schwizgebel, Switzerland/Canada

"Night and the City," Jules Dassin, U.K.

"Nordwand," Philipp Stolzl, Germany/Austria/Switzerland
