‘Fifi,’ ‘Bug,’ ‘Manakamana’ Win at Buenos Aires’ Bafici

13 April 2014 11:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Madrid – Mitra Farahani’s portrait of Iranian artist Bahamn Mohasses, “Fifi Howls With Happiness” topped the International Competition at the 16th Buenos Aires International Independent Film Festival (Bafici), which wrapped Sunday.

Distinguished with a wealth of local movies, however small, including a clutch of new titles, some popular though they didn’t end up in with a prize, and an international competition packed with gems, beginning with its best picture winner, the 16th Bafici looks set to go down a strong edition.

“Fifi” delivers a bracing portrait of Iranian artist Bahman Mohasses, and the vastly contrarian and contradictory nature of creative genius at large, presenting at once a caustic, dogmatic, seeringly mordant interviewee who has destroyed many of his paintings and shunned the limelight, but is still concerned about how the world views him and is finally persuaded to paint again.

'Party Girl' to get the party started in Un Certain Regard at Cannes

10 April 2014 11:29 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hard to believe that the Cannes Film Festival is just a month away -- before you know it, people will be cranking up the Oscar conversation again. The full lineup will be announced in Paris on April 17, but another nugget was revealed this morning. The opening film of the theoretically secondary, but increasingly prestigious, Un Certain Regard competition will be a French title: "Party Girl," the joint directorial debut of Marie Amacoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis. In recent years, Cannes has sometimes kicked off Ucr with a big-name auteur title: Gus Van Sant's "Restless" and, last year, Sofia Coppola's "The Bling Ring" both took the slot, as a kind of compensation for the directors being demoted from the main Competition. The more left-field selection of "Party Girl," says the festival, is indicative of the section's mission to expose fresh talent. The film is a mix of fact and fiction, »

10 April 2014 9:54 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

"Party Girl," a debut feature written and directed by Marie Amachoukeli, Claire Burger and Samuel Theis, is set to open the Un Certain Regard section of Cannes 2014. Here's the official description for the French docudrama, which sounds like it has shades of last year's festival fave "Gloria":Party Girl follows the life of Angélique, a 60 year-old night club hostess who still loves men and enjoys partying, but now as the senior member on staff, feels she has reached the end of the line. On an impulse, she agrees to marry her regular client, Michel. The film is a portrait of a free woman who has chosen to live on the margins of conventional society, and delves deep into a France that is often underrepresented. With total realism, the lead role is played by the real-life Angélique.The trio of co-directors have had short films "Forbach" and "C'est gratuit pour les filles »

Cannes– Argentine star scribe-helmer Pablo Trapero has been tapped to head the jury of Un Certain Regard at the upcoming Cannes Festival.

In the past few years, Un Certain Regard – originally created to showcase the most experimental, left-of-field and smaller-scale films that simply didn’t make the Competition cut — has gained a higher profile under general delegate Thierry Fremaux’s leadership.

“I am very proud to serve as president of the jury for Un Certain Regard. Proud to take part in another way in the adventure in Cannes. Un Certain Regard, where I have presented three of my films, is always a very exciting selection. It brings us grand masters, promising young talent, new countries and new forms of cinema,” said Trapero.

Miami Film Festival Diary: Brazil comes on strong in 'A Wolf at the Door' and 'Man of the Crowd'

14 March 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Miami - One of the pleasures of smaller film festivals, where one's viewing is less dutifully structured around competitions and mandatory big-name premieres, is pick-and-mix scheduling -- selecting the day's viewing on a mixture of gut instinct and chance convenience, and seeing what unexpected patterns and conflicts emerge. Coincidentally enough, I wound up seeing two Brazilian films back to back yesterday -- not such an improbable occurrence in a festival programme that accommodates Latin-American markets so generously, but their wildly contrasting impressions of urban social malaise and personal distrust proved mutually enhancing. Mexico and Germany were selected by the Miami programmers for dedicated showcases this year; on yesterday's evidence, however, Brazilian film is fighting fit. There's a fierce, Pablo Trapero-like sense of purpose to "A Wolf at the Door," a jumpy, pile-driving directorial debut for Fernando Coimbra that seems a gateway to more illustrious things -- as plausibly within »
