And before we hear ...

We here, at fest21.com, loved Taken Liam Neeson latest film which was produced by Luc Besson. What a surprise to find out that Liam could beat Bond at ass kicking. The film goes out on DVD and Blue Ray. We had a chance to discuss with Liam about the film. This is an intense film – can you talk about the difficulties of the shoot? First, I love the physicality in films. It’s always great to get the chance to flex your muscles. I’ve done quite a few action films, sword mov...

Focus from London Festival on Actor/Director/Writer Bouli Lanners

user
Bouli Lanners is a Belgian actor and writer-director, whose Ultranova screened to great acclaim at the LFF in 2005. His follow-up, Eldorado, is a beautifully cinematic and absurdly funny road movie that also packs a hefty emotional punch. A lot of the films I’ve seen at this year’s Festival have been very sombre, so with Eldorado it was nice to see something that at least made me laugh before going on to fill me with a sense of sadness! It’s a very idiosyncratic film, full of strange litt...

A Conversation With Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth

Jorgen Leth interview by Wendy Dent Festival dei Popoli, Florence 7 December 2005WD: This festival was very unique in that it expanded my definitions of what documentary is and this is what stunned me about your films, is they were staged and it really broadened my idea of what documentary is but made me wonder where is the line, where is the definition? Once you start to have actors and you make a comment about society, but even drama is a comment on humanity so I am wondering what you feel abo...
