Click Here for complete coverage of the Chicago International Film Festival (Ciff 2010)

R U There

Directed by: David Verbeek

Cast: Stijn Koomen, Huan-Ru Ke

Running Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Rating: Nr

Release Date: Tbd

Plot: A professional competitor at computer games (Koomen) discovers the realities of love and violence when he goes to Taipei for a tournament. There, he befriends a masseuse (Ke). Winner of Un Certain Regard at Cannes 2010.

Who’S It For? This movie is about video gamers who might be obsessed with their non-realities, but it is not for them. However modern this movie may be, with its “Second Life”-like sequences and subject focus, it is not made at the attention level that video games program its players into. R U There is made for those who only think they actually understand modern interactive entertainment.

Viff has movies. Lots of movies. We've got the line-up (so far)

8 September 2010 4:27 PM, PDT | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The Vancouver International Film Festival is my baby. In its 29th year, this is the event I look forward to every year. The lists I've kept through the year come out and I eagerly look through the list of titles in search of those little gems and every year Viff responds with a huge assortment of titles. This year's festival is no different.

Some of the titles we're most eagerly anticipating include Tsumetai Nettaigyo’s Cold Fish (trailer), Gareth EdwardsMonsters (trailer, review), Jo Sung-Hee’s apocalyptic road movie End of Animal, Carl Bessai’s Repeaters (trailer) and Xavier Dolan's Heartbeats (trailer, review).

There's loads more so be sure to check the titles (so far) after the break. Many more to be announced in the coming days.

HeyUGuys at Cannes 2010: R U There Review

16 May 2010 12:36 PM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

I’ll keep it brief, because there is only so much bashing one film can take from one man, and I dont usually believe in exorcising critical demons in public unless a film really Really deserves it. But trust me, R U There did deserves it with a vengeance. I am enormously astounded that the film got more applause than Robin Hood, and that it’s current Jury rating (according to Variety) is around the 3/4 mark- I only assume I was watching the wrong film.

The film is ostensibly the tale of a professional video gamer who, during a tournament in China, falls in love with a local, and basically buys her attention for the time he remains in China. It falls somewhere in the uber-modern romance story bracket, but it clearly has aspirations above its station. The first (long) half an hour or so is spent establishing that the »

Cannes 2010: Pics and Trailers for Several In Competition Titles and Then Some

3 May 2010 2:23 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the weekend I was hard at work adding additional titles debuting at this year's 2010 Cannes Film Festival in an effort to make sure once I am in town it is all about seeing the movies and working as little as possible on the asset process. As a result, I now have 17 of the 18 films in competition in the database as information on Sergei Loznitsa's Schastye Moe (My Joy) doesn't seem to be available. However, information on the other 17 is now readily available along with some new pictures and trailers for several of them.

First off, to the right is one of the first three images available for Mathieu Amalric's Tournee, of which I also have the official synopsis for the film from the man most of you know as the villain from Quantum of Solace or Jean-Dominique Bauby from The Diving Bell and the Butterfly.

HeyUGuys at Cannes 2010: Final Touches to the Line-Up

2 May 2010 2:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

As I suggested in my last update, the Cannes film festival line-up we announced earlier this month has since changed slightly, with new additions coming quickly after the initial announcement, and the hoped for inclusion of Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life not making it to the party after all. Below is the new- and with only a week or so left until the Festival opens with Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood- presumably the absolute final line-up for this year’s programmes. All titles have been translated into English for ease where they re not obviously translatable.

Festival de Cannes Closing Night, Lineup and Poster - Final Final Announcement Made

29 April 2010 8:18 PM, PDT | Sydney's Buzz | See recent Sydney's Buzz news »

The Festival de Cannes lives up to its name in its selection of its first 16 Competition Films from 13 countries. But an international cry went up when at the first announcement not a single picture was directed by a woman in the Competition area. (Last year there were directors Jane Campion, Isabel Coixet and Andrea Arnold.)  However, the Closing Night film was just announced and it is Julie Bertucelli’s The Tree, starring Charlotte Gainsbourg, Marton Csokas and Aden Young.  It will close the 63rd Festival de Cannes on Sunday, May 23rd following the Awards Ceremony. Memento is the international sales agent.  Contacts for all films are listed below.

The other women invited can be found in the special screening sidebar where Sophie Fiennes' Over Your Cities Grass Will Grow about the German artist Anselm Kiefer, one of five docs chosen to be in the festival, Sabina Guzzanti's Draquila »

The Cannes Lineup (Thus Far)

20 April 2010 3:12 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Updated 04/19 They've added two titles but none to the actual competition list just yet. Updates are included below

04/15 Yes, they will add a few titles. Looking round the web people expect something like 4 to 5 more films to show up. Speculation that Malick's Tree of Life or Nolans Inception or Schnabel's Miral probably won't die until after they add said missing titles. But if you're heading over to the South of France next month or merely reading along on various Twitter feeds or film blogs, these are some of the titles you'll be hearing about.

Blanchett. Crowe. Scott

Opening Night Film

Because you have to kick off with a starry entry for that maximum red carpet kick. It gets the international and mainstream press excited and you need their eyeballs... even if your festival is for the global cinephiles.

Robin Hood (Ridley Scott)

I'm amused that the tagline is marketing this as an "untold story". Hee. »

Line-Up for the 2010 Cannes Film Festival Includes Oliver Stone and Woody Allen, but No Terrence Malick

15 April 2010 10:45 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

There are plenty of films at this year’s Cannes Film Festival that you’ll curse the heavens you’re not able to go.  However, there’s one big glaring omission: Terrence Malick’s Tree of Life.  There was heavy speculation that the film would make its long-awaited premiere at the festival, but presumably the ambitious sci-fi film starring Brad Pitt and Sean Penn wasn’t ready in time.

But that doesn’t mean there aren’t other noteworthy films.  Cannes is a great time to get a heads-up on a films although they may not be the finished product (a longer version of Inglourious Basterds premiered at last year’s festival to mixed reviews).  This year’s films to watch are Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu’s Biutiful, Doug Liman’s Fair Game, Oliver Stone’s Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, and Woody Allen’s You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger. »

When the line up for Cannes is announced something wonderful happens. For a shining moment the horizon of forthcoming movies expands to reveal a wealth of talent whose diversity of vision makes for an education in the variety of film making in the 21st century.

The 2010 Cannes Film Festival Line-Up

15 April 2010 6:12 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Only a few recognisable entires have made their way into the 63rd Cannes Film Festival line-up which has proven quite globally diverse this year.

High-profile films like arthouse darling Gregg Araki's new sexy sci-fi tale "Kaboom", Ridley Scott's big-budget epic "Robin Hood", Stephen Frears' graphic novel adaptation "Tamara Drewe", Oliver Stone's "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" and Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" will all screen but won't be up for awards.

Mike Leigh's "Another Year", Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Biutiful" and Doug Liman's "Fair Game" are among the more higher profile entires in official competition this year. "Ringu" director Hideo Nakata's British feature "Chatroom" and Derek Cianfrance's Sundance entry "Blue Valentine" made unexpected but welcome appearances in the 'Un Certain Regard' line-up.

Most surprising are the omissions. Terrence Malick's "Tree of Life" and Christopher Nolan's "Inception" will Not be screening, »
