"Someone Somewhere" ("Deux Moi") - Film Interview with Cédric Klapisch

by Emilia Ippolito This Parisian story explores avenues of urban solitude and how two thirty-something year old deal with them The action takes place in a run down middle class neighbourhood in Paris. Remy (Francois Civil) - a call centre worker - and Melanie (Ana Girardot) - a passionate cancer researcher still healing from the end of her former relationship are neighbours, and dealing with similar issues - with no knowledge of the other. Both embracing analysis : state-funded for Fra...

"Continuer" - "Keep Going" Film - Interview with Joachim Lafosse

by Emilia Ippolito The UK French Film Festival- currently on in several UK cities (7-15 November) shows a wide variety of relevant and valuable films from French speaking countries One of them is certainly Continuer - Keep Going (2018), directed by Belgian Joachim Lafosse It portrays a mother-son relationship on a difficult ‘reconciliation trip’ through supposedly Central Asian harsh landscapes, on horses. We are rather used to watch/read stories about father-son or moth...

"Flawless" - UK Film Festival - Interview with Stav Strashko

by Emilia Ippolito The UK Jewish Film Festival (6-21 November) offers a variety of new and old films all over the UK this year. In London we will be able to watch Flawless (2018), with the transgender Jewish model Stav Strashko. It’s the story of a transgender girl coming of age between Israel and Ukraine- where Stav was actually born. We follow the shy but self-aware teen ager protagonist: a boy who has always felt like a girl - through awful bullying at school, where her male f...

"Maleficent - Mistress of Evil" - Film Review

by Emilia Ippolito After five years, we finally have the sequel to Maleficent (2014) on general release in the UK. A modern fantasy film paying tribute to Walt Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, the sequel depicts a battle between good and evil. Mind you, it could very well make ‘abstract’ reference to political and certainly social battlefields we are witnessing right now. Maleficent (Angelina Jolie) travels to an an old castle in a different land to celebrate Aurora’s ...

"Official Secrets" - Film Review

by Emilia Ippolito Official Secrets, currently on general release in the UK, tells us the story of a British civil servant, Katherine Gun, who disclosed a highly confidential memo to the press - via a controversial anti war activist - asking British intelligence for support in convincing a few members of the UN Security Council to vote in favour of the war in Irak. Gun, turning from intelligence officer into a spy, but thinking merely in terms of human loss, was against the invasion - hence h...

"The Cave" - Interview with Tom Waller, director

by Emilia Ippolito Within the large Documentary Film section at the 63rd edition of the BFI Film Festival in London this year one in particular caught our attention: The Cave, directed by Tom Weller. The Cave tells the story of the 2018 unexpected rescue of the Wild Boars Thai football team from the Tham Luang Cave. The junior group, who volunteered to descend into those depths, was trapped in the cave with their coach for 18 days during the Monsoon season. An international team planned ...

"Ordinary Love" - Film - Speaking with directors Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn

by Emilia Ippolito In spite of the absence of relevant talents, the 63rd edition of the BFI Film Festival has offered an international audience in London a very interesting and broad program this year. One of the most appealing films is certainly Ordinary Love. Directed by Lisa Barros D’Sa and Glenn Leyburn, starring Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville, this insightful feature portrays a married couple facing Lesley’s long term and maybe fatal illness. Both script and visual conce...

The Irishman - Film Review

by Emilia Ippolito The 63rd BFI Film Festival closed this year with a sensational film: The Irishman, directed by the cinema icon Martin Scorsese, starring Robert De Niro (Frank Sheeran) and Al Pacino (Jimmy Hoffa) in the main roles and Joe Pesci (Russell Bufalino) along with Harvey Keitel (Angelo Bruno) and Anna Paquin (Peggy Sheeran) in minor roles - but just as relevant to its complex narrative. The story is broadly based on Charles Brandt’s biopic I Heard You...
