18 October 2017 4:42 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

San Sebastián: Director Ivana Mladenovic on ‘Soldiers. A Story from Ferentari’

26 September 2017 12:21 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

San Sebastian — “Boy or girl?” jokes Adi (Adrian Schiop), poking the vast dome of a belly of boyfriend Alberto (Pavel Vasile-Digudai), who lies on his sofa, on which he takes up frequent residence, in the mid-stretch of “Soldiers. A Story from Ferentari.”

Even in physical terms, the love story of Adi, a wiry thin-rim-glassed intellectual and Alberto, an young ox of a man who has gone to fat, seems a near surreal conjunction. And sex is one of the best things the couple’s got going for them.

Adi and Alberto meet when Adi moves into a dreary flat in the Ferentari Roma neighborhood of Bucharest, to research a doctorate on menele, Roma urban folk music. But homosexuality is frowned upon in Ferentari. The lovers can frolic together in a park in the rich part of Bucharest, but not even hold hands in the neighborhood. Adi comes from Romania’s middle-class, a »

Toronto Film Review: ‘Soldiers. Story From Ferentari’

22 September 2017 4:05 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A seduction scene in which two very average-looking men well past the blush of youth do a lot of cuddling — not an activity you see a lot of at the movies — is but one sign that “Soldiers. Story From Ferentari” will not hew to gay-romance conventions. Documentarian Ivana Mladenovic’s first narrative feature is a likably ramshackle, seemingly semi-improvised “free adaptation” of co-scenarist/star Adrian Schiop’s semi-autobiographical novel about his experiences in Bucharest’s Roma slum. Looking for social entree for academic research, he instead found himself a pariah due to his open affair with his ex-con Roma “guide.”

A quirky semi-fiction with lots of colorful detail, “Soldiers” nonetheless could sorely use some — well, any — narrative drive. Gay fests and New Director spotlights will be willing to overlook the general meandering. But another editorial pass or two might be required to tempt more commercial channels.

Toronto/San Sebastián: Beta Cinema Acquires ‘Soldiers. A Story From Ferentari’ (Exclusive)

24 August 2017 11:47 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Munich-based Beta Cinema is partnering with Berlin Golden Bear-winning Romanian producer Ada Solomon (“Child’s Pose,” “Aferim,” ’Toni Erdmann”) on “Soldiers. A Story from Ferentari,” a contemporary gay love story set in the notorious Roma neighborhood of Ferentari, on the outskirts of Bucharest.

Beta Cinema will handle world sales rights on the film, the narrative feature debut of Serbia’s Ivana Mladenovic, whose caché has grown steadily given its backing – Solomon at Romania’s Hi Film Productions, Serbia’s Film House Bas Celik, Belgium’s Frakas Prods – and selection, announced earlier this week, for the Toronto Festival’s Discovery section.

Buzz was already been growing on the title before the announcement in early August of its main competition berth at San Sebastian Festival, with several sales agents talking up the title. It has finally been tied down by Beta Cinema, a prestige sales house whose Venice, Toronto and San Sebastian slate of selected and upcoming titles mixes »

The Furniture: Who Should Win the Emmys for Production Design

21 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

"The Furniture," by Daniel Walber, is our weekly series on Production Design. You can click on the images to see them in magnified detail.

Last year, I made a pitch to the Academy of Television Arts and Science on the subject of production design. Hopefully you also remember that amazing table tennis parlor from Penny Dreadful. But what you might not remember is that not a single one of the nominees I recommended actually won. Not even Lemonade, about which I am still annoyed.

But here I am, one year later, trying again. Here’s who should win each of the five production design Emmys. (At least Game of Thrones isn’t eligible this year, or they’d be winning for the fourth year in a row.)

Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Contemporary or Fantasy Program (One Hour or More)

The Young Pope is almost dizzyingly lush. It’s here as a “contemporary” program, »

Cannes: Mexico’s ‘Yesterday,’ ‘Panchitos’ Go to Cannes From Los Cabos

12 May 2017 1:53 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Four films by young, up-and-coming Mexican talents – Gustavo Gamou’s “Sex Panchitos Punk,” Gabriel Mariño’s “Yesterday Wonder I Was,” Miguel Calderón’s “The Second Coming” and Alana Simões’ “My Brother” –  will be unveiled Sunday week at Los Cabos Goes to Cannes, a Cannes Film Market’s pix-in-post industry showcase drawing on one of the fastest-growing events in Latin America.

“We have concentrated on young directors whose themes dovetail with Los Cabos’ selection lines and are backed with robust enough producers to guarantee the continuity and completion of the projects,” said Maru Garzon, Los Cabos’ programming director.

She added: “The chosen titles bring together intimate stories, strong characters set in an urban context and portrayed with a cinematic point of view with a clear stamp of Mexican identity but at the same time storylines that make them universal.”

Producer Tatiana Graullera, who backed Ludovic Bonleux’ “Guerrero,” produced two of the showcase titles: ”Panchitos” and “Coming. »

Cannes Film Market Adds Haf, Vilnius, New Horizons, Thessaloniki to Pix-in-Post Showcases

28 April 2017 3:51 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Cannes Film Market, the world’s biggest – and still growing – film industry meet, is raising the bar once more in industry initiatives, adding four new events to its 5th Goes to Cannes works-in-progress brand: FilMart’s Hong Kong Asia Film Financing Forum (Haf), Lithuania’s Vilnius Intl. Film Festival, New Horizon Polish Days and Greece’s Thessaloniki Intl. Film Festival.

The Marché du Film also added four more festival showcases last year to the Goes To series. In all, in the space of four years, from 2013’s inaugural single-event Bal Goes to Cannes, this year 10 festivals will showcase key movies at rough-cut, nearly always screened for the first time outside their own pix-in-post strands.

Haf also marks Goes to Cannes’ first Asian fest partner. As in 2016, the new additions target some of the world’s fastest growing regions, such as, undoubtedly, Asia (Haf), as well as buzzed-up national cinemas (Nhpd, »

Giallo Norms and Deviations: Close-up on "Deep Red" and "The Strange Color of Your Body’s Tears"

26 February 2017 6:39 AM, PST | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Hélène Cattet & Bruno Forzani's The Strange Colour of Your Body's Tears (2013) is showing February 4 - March 6 and Dario Argento's Deep Red (1975) is showing February 5 - March 7, 2017 in the United Kingdom in the double feature Giallo/Meta Giallo.“I know it when I see it.” Like film noir, the giallo is one of those genres as easy to pin down as it is difficult to define. More often than not, what constitutes a giallo rests on a given film’s balance of emblematic imagery and an archetypal storyline, while other factors like tone, score, and setting will also play a part in its classification. Arguably no filmmaker has had a more stylish and deftly rigorous hand in establishing these defining traits than Dario Argento. And his 1975 film, Deep Red (Profondo Rosso), is perhaps as good as it gets, »

NYC Weekend Watch: Scorsese Docs, Leonard Cohen, Social Thrillers & More

17 February 2017 7:51 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Since any New York City cinephile has a nearly suffocating wealth of theatrical options, we figured it’d be best to compile some of the more worthwhile repertory showings into one handy list. Displayed below are a few of the city’s most reliable theaters and links to screenings of their weekend offerings — films you’re not likely to see in a theater again anytime soon, and many of which are, also, on 35mm. If you have a chance to attend any of these, we’re of the mind that it’s time extremely well-spent.

Museum of the Moving Image

The Scorsese retrospective has a music-filled weekend with The Last Waltz, his George Harrison documentary, and more.

Anthology Film Archives

The late, great Leonard Cohen is paid tribute with a small retrospective that includes Fassbinder’s Beware of a Holy Whore and McCabe and Mrs. Miller.

Jean Vigo’s masterpiece L’Atalante has showings. »
