Wild, dir. Jean-Marc Vallée, 2014, US

This challenge now has potentially evolved into the journey of encountering our dreams and testing our capability to either pursue or quit them; but is it easy to define a dream as a ‘to quit’ or ‘to live’, before knowing the cost?
Wild is about dreams. Or, to be m...
How did you come up with idea of doing something so different as the experiment in the film, where you take four people and isolate them from the society?
The idea came from a music video that I made with my writing partner and husband. We did this music video with characters that were living isolated and it was a bit more abstract, so we decided to explore it a bit more, play more with people. We were thinking quite a lot of Bergman as well, and we included many personal ideas a...

Hungry hearts, dir. Saverio Costanzo, Italy 2014 Venezia71
An Italian girl and an American boy meet accidentally in a Chinese restaurant in New York. The amusement of the first conversation is a corny, lighthearted lead to their upcoming future as a couple. Giving you a plain dose of a typical love story, Hungry hearts tricks you with its misleading rom-com opening, giving an under the belt punch with what's about to follow.
