Durban International Film Festival offers world cinema in South Africa

Cinema to cinema

Day 4 took me around the world and from cinema complex to cinema complex. I have never been in taxis so musch as today! I travelled to Slovenia, Switzerland, France, England and Georgia all in one day and thankfully all on screen. The quality of the films varied today. The day kicked off with the life of a prostitute in Slovenian Girl, followed to the very colourful world of Pepperminta and the bond she has with menstrual blood, than went to France for Wild Grass and one of the weirdest love affairs ever, back to England for the terrific The Infidel and then to Georgia for the harsh Street Days. Between all of this, I 've also attended the awards ceremony!  Slovenian Girl is set in Eastern Europe but it could have been Durban as selling yourself is universal. Pepperminta was the oddest film I've ever seen. In fact, I think it was a pop video mixed with video experimentation or something. The use of colour, however, is breathtaking. Wild Grass is also very odd. I can understand how a relationship can develop when you pick up somebody's wallet, but then the intrigue!! Only the French can come up with this. The hit of the day was The Infidel, one of the funniest film I've seen in a long time and the use of humour to tackle religion is genius. The audience loved it, although I think it can be offensive to some. The film scores a 9. Street Days takes viewers to Tbilisi and junkies who are forever looking for a hit. That is probably the only time I'll ever get to Georgia. The film scores an 8. The fifth and last days beckons and holds the wonders of The killer inside me. I cannot wait. More about the winners tomorrow.
