ÉCU AT THE TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL

user
 The Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) is North America’s most favoured 11 days for independent film.

Film festivals and Canada were on my mind as I waited to have an interview with Manon Briand, a Quebecois director whose new feature film “Liverpool” was showing in TI...

LFF - WHAT I LOVE THE MOST (Lo Que Mas Quiero) [2010] dir Delfina Castanigno

#
 WHAT I LOVE THE MOST is an assured debut by former assistant/editor Delfina Castanigno. Assured because of the risks she takes; the sort of story the film tells, the way it was structured and the way she chose to shoot it all.   The film is about two unnamed friends, one lives in the South of Argentina and just lost her father, the other comes visit from Buenos Aires taking a break from her boyfriend of 4 years. The film's structure seems to be chronological, but there is no way of knowing ...
