A Mindbogging Short from Paris with love Via Denmark

Alex Deleonian,  Yerevan Film Festival, 2014     The strangest  thing about Danish filmmaker Charlotte Schioler's droll but serious short Paris drama "By any means AVEIL~able" -- Strange as it may seem -- is that it is basically a retelling of what actually happened to her when she went to buy an apartment in real life and hit upon the idea of disguising herself as a veiled Moslem women in order to unobtrusively take the measurements of the apartment she was ...

Strong women in film

My last day of DIFF had 3 films and they starred strong women. The storylines are so different – one is a monkey, the other is an elderly Chinese mother and the third is a vampire. Day 6 kicked off with the beautiful wildlife doccie called Amazonia in 3D. The film follows a capuchin monkey called Sai, who is dumped in the Amazon after a a plane crash. I would love to know how this was filmed. It is a tale of an animal that has to survive although she is tame. The soundtrack, only monkey c...

Out and proud or not?

  Gender and sexuality is one of the official themes at DIFF.   I saw three films today and a little-known surfer documentary stole the show. Out in the    line up is the story of how gay surfers struggle to fit in in one of the most macho sports. It    is polished, beautifully filmed, straight forward without offending and even funny. It is a    pity the doccie was only screened once as a wider audience should s...

The Grand Budapest Hotel, Review

The Grand Budapest Hotel Wes Anderson’s 8th feature film is inspired by the writings of Austrian writer Stefan Zweig (he admits to having “directly stolen” many ideas from Zweig’s works, as well as from his life). He pays tribute to Zweig in the credits, though he then takes co-credit for the film script. In terms of detail, scenic splendour, costumes, make-up and free-wheeling narrative, The Grand Budapest Hotel is an exciting experience. As a comedy, it falls short o...
