Wild, dir. Jean-Marc Vallée, 2014, US
It is rather a common thing to push ourselves beyond the borderline in an attempt to see what it takes to confront our fears. 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...

REVIEW: The captive by Atom Egoyan, Canada – 67e Festival De Cannes Competition
The master of psychological thrillers Atom Egoyan returns to the Croisette with a rather stiffand mostly predictable story based on true events from his native Canada.

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.

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...
