TIFF 53 COVERAGE: IN ANOTHER COUNTRY BY HONG SANG-SOO (ENG)

Not unlike his earlier masterpieces, Hong Sang Soo plays again with intertextuality and storytelling, with repetition, intersecting leitmotifs, happy accidents and with a modest but masterfully crafted mise in scene. His gentle humour and the way which he approaches his characters has achieved a rare, if not complex peak, which he still sustains with consistence.

TIFF 53 COVERAGE: DEAD EUROPE BY TONY KRAWITZ (ENG)

Despite some common places, like evoking that multinational cinema of cosmopolite contexts as a synonym of migrants, delinquency, violence and drug addiction, Krawits achieves a film with force and suspense, which is passionate in this almost obscene tale that evocates and avoids to translate from the book (a novel that carries the “dooms” of Henry Miller or Lautreamont) and that includes overall a lot of disappointment and pessimism.
