Directors Foreword

WELCOME TO THIS YEARS JAMESON DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL OUR ANNUAL SNAPSHOT OF THE BEST OF WORLD CINEMA. THIS YEARS DIVERSE LINE-UP OF FILMS REFLECTS THE WIDE R ANGE OF PERSONAL VISIONS FROM FILM-MAKERS AROUND THE GLOBE, WHOSE PASSION AND ARTISTRY WE CELEBRATE.

We kick start our celebrations with a superb drama: Broken is the film debut by the renowned British theatre director Rufus Norris, with Tim Roth in attendance. Ten days later the festival will conclude with the world premiere of Mark McLoughlins Blood Rising; this provocative documentary (about the victims of femicide in Juarez, Mexico) is a stunning film which was funded under the Arts Councils Reel Art programme. Over the months of preparation I have been struck by some emerging trends: a resurgence in powerful and challenging documentaries and a complementary rise in hybrid, docu-dramas, and we have a wonderful line up, including Oscarnominated Israeli documentary The Gatekeepers, Amy Bergs West of Memphis and the controversial Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God from Alex Gibney, who will also participate in a masterclass. Also highly recommended are the fascinating portraits of the drummer Ginger Baker, legendary graphic designer Pablo Ferro and famed childrens author Tomi Ungerer.

To counterbalance the darker films in our programme, we also have a lovely strand of comedies, including the effervescent Struck by Lightning (written by Glees Chris Colfer), Suzanne Biers valentine to Italy Love is All You Need; Basque comedy Bypass; a new film (In the House) by that master of social comedy Franois Ozon and, of course, who could forget the bad boys of Mayo, now on the big screen in The Hardy Bucks Movie? Our guest of honour will be American comedy legend Danny DeVito, who will take part in our Jameson Cult Film Club screening as well as receive a Volta Career Achievement Award. Our packed Irish programme features new feature films, documentaries in Irish, English and 3D and two great programmes of short films. In partnership with the Irish Film Board we will celebrate screenwriting with our Story Campus programmes which this year include Robert Towne amongst their tutors, as well as Untitled our script pitching competition now in its third year. Enjoy!

Its a testament to the growing reputation of the festival that we have such a dazzling array of talent joining us this February, including Frank Langella (Robot & Frank), Joss Whedon (Much Ado About Nothing), Tobias Lindholm (A Hijacking), casting legend Margery Simkin (Top Gun, Erin Brockovich) and gaming master Guillaume de Fondaumire (Heavy Rain). This years Film Concert will celebrate the music of the Oscar-winning film composer Dario Marianelli (Atonement, Anna Karenina).

The festival will tour the Buster Keaton classic caper films One Week and Cops in eight venues round Ireland, including six care centres in Dublin, with Morgan Cooke again presenting select screenings and providing accompaniment. Our Out of the Past programme will feature a very special screening of the 1928 silent classic Spies, with music by the acclaimed German pianist Gnter Buchwald, as well great classics such as Wilders Sunset Blvd., Petris Investigation of a Citizen Under Suspicion and Kubricks The Killing. As ever there are many, many people to thank: our funders, government agencies, supporters, friends of the festival, embassies and of course our title sponsor Jameson; my colleagues, both national and international, who help put this programme together, and our much valued Board of Directors. To all the distributors, sales agents and film-makers who give so generously of their time and their films to our festival each year, a heartfelt thanks we couldnt do it without you. I am big its the pictures that got small! Norma Desmond memorably protests. There are no small films in this years festival, but we have tried to define pathways through the programme which I hope will encourage you to discover some of the many exciting new talents presented this year.

WHE THER YOU ARE LIVING IN IREL AND, RE TURNING HERE FOR THE GATHERING, OR VISITING DUBLIN FOR BUSINESS OR PLEASURE, IT IS A GREAT JOY TO WELCOME YOU TO THE 11TH JAMESON DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL.

We had a fantastic 10th birthday last year with record attendances. I am confident that, with the brilliant programming of our wonderful Director, Grinne Humphreys, we have a line-up of films and events that will enthral and captivate our ever-expanding audience. We are particularly glad to be able to mark Irelands presidency of the EU with a very special strand of work devoted to the best of European cinema. As always, I acknowledge our extraordinary 11-year partnership with our title sponsor, Jameson. The longevity of this arrangement is testament to the maturity and vibrancy of what is, in terms of Irish arts sponsorship, a unique and exemplary working relationship. I also acknowledge with much gratitude the continued support of The Arts Council/ An Chomhairle Ealaon and The Irish Film Board/Bord Scannn na hireann, as well as our many other supporters and sponsors.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Joanne OHagan for her years of service to the festival and to warmly welcome Jackie Ryan in her stead. Also, I salute our wonderful staff and our dedicated army of volunteers. I particularly wish to thank our splendid voluntary Board of Directors who give so generously of their time to guide the festival with their wisdom and expertise. This is especially warranted this year following an extensive review of the organisation after its first 10 years of existence. Thank you, the audience, for being here you are our raison dtre. I hope you have a brilliant festival. Arthur Lappin, Chairman

Closing Dates 2013 January 31st June 6th September 19th

2013 MARKS THE 11TH ANNIVERSARY FOR JAMESON DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL. IT HAS BEEN SUCH A DELIGHT FOR US AT IRISH DISTILLERS PERNOD RICARD TO SEE HOW YEAR ON YEAR THE FESTIVAL IS GAINING STRENGTH AND AT TR ACTING MORE AND MORE VISITORS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.

The festival contributes to showcasing Dublin as a cultural hot spot and, as proud makers of Irish whiskey, this is of course something that we very much enjoy seeing. Our association with film began in 1998 and I am very proud to say that, today, Jameson is involved with some of the most dynamic and successful film festivals around the world, including the Jameson Empire Awards in London and the Film Independent Spirit Awards in Los Angeles. At the heart of our film association is, of course, our sponsorship of JDIFF, which has grown from strength to strength since 2003. In support of this, we have once again developed an integrated marketing campaign consisting of TV, print, radio, outdoor, online and extensive in-bar and retail promotions around Dublin. This years programme will once again feature the hugely popular Jameson Cult Film Club where we will bring to life Curtis Hansons classic film LA Confidential.

Film and Irish whiskey go together well. The art of storytelling, in a pub, with friends, is still very much alive in Ireland. And one way for this heritage to be expressed, is storytelling through film. We would like to raise a glass to the eternal art of storytelling! Slinte! We have great ambitions for Jameson this year and I very much look forward to an exciting and successful 2013 festival. I hope over the coming weeks you will join us for a Jameson at one of the many after-show parties taking place during the festival. Anna Malmhake CEO & Chairman Irish Distillers Pernod Ricard

Skunk (Eloise Laurence) is an 11-year-old with diabetes, a bothersome condition that impinges on her otherwise seemingly blissful life. Her devoted single father Archie (Tim Roth) worries about her, and her minder Kasia (Zana Marjanovic) is frequently distracted by issues with her teacher boyfriend Mike (Cillian Murphy), though all recognise that she is a special kid with wit and smarts beyond her years. As the summer begins, Skunk witnesses a violent incident involving her neighbours in the isolated North London cul-de-sac where she lives. The event ushers in a period in her life where childhood innocence is gradually dissolving, and she is forced to confront the realities of the harsh world around her.

MEA MAXIMA CULPA: SILENCE IN THE HOUSE OF GOD

Fri 15 Feb / Light House 1 / 6pm / 107 minutes


Director: Alex Gibney / 2012 / US

Alex Gibney will attend the screening and will host a masterclass on documentary film-making on Thursday 14 February - see p. 120 for details Alex Gibney won an Academy Award for Taxi to the Dark Side Public revulsion over the sex-abuse scandal in the Catholic Church is already so widespread that a film-maker bold enough to retell this tragedy had better be purposeful about it and Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) definitely is that. Mea Maxima Culpa is a fire-breathing set of theses nailed on the Vaticans door. Gibney structures the film with care, beginning with the depredations of Father Lawrence Murphy at St Johns School for the Deaf in Milwaukee. The priest abused the men in the film when they were schoolboys, favouring with horrendous cunning the ones whose parents couldnt speak to their sons in sign language. As the boys grew into men they began to communicate with one another, and eventually became some of the first to go public, in the 1970s, with accusations against a priest. From this group Gibney spirals outward, to those who tried and failed to get Murphy away from the school, to the higher-ups who protected the churchs image but not the victims, and finally to the Vatican itself. In the end, decades of such crimes going undetected speaks for itself. And the extraordinary perseverance and courage of the men from St Johns speaks louder still. Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post

NATAN
IRISH FOCUS

Paul Duane and David Cairns will attend the screening Reel Art is an Arts Council scheme designed to provide film artists with a unique opportunity to make highly creative, imaginative and experimental documentaries on an artistic theme. How did the man who, more than any other, paved the way for a French national cinema come to be completely forgotten, especially so in France? How is it that what little attention is paid to him centres on his alleged career as a pioneer and performer in early gay and BDSM porn? Why was Bernard Natans name erased from the history of cinema, despite the fact that he dominated the French film industry for most of the 1920s and 30s? David Cairns and Paul Duane have excavated an extraordinary tale that aims to rewrite the history of European cinema. The man who brought sound cinema to France and Cinemascope to the screen before the word existed, the French equivalent of Cecil B de Mille, came to an end so shockingly tragic that it seems unbelievable. Rumours and lies have swarmed around his story for decades but this documentary finally brings the truth to light. From the maker of the Grierson award-nominated portrait of writer John Healy, Barbaric Genius, and the award-winning music documentary Very Extremely Dangerous, NATAN is simultaneously a visually experimental murder mystery, an inspiring portrait of the birth of cinema and a savage history of French bigotry in the 1920s and 30s.

THE RISE

Fri 15 Feb / Cineworld 8 / 6.30pm / 77 minutes


A heist thriller with a distinctly British sensibility, The Rise marks an assured and engaging first feature from writer/director Rowan Athale. Appealing characters, clever plotting and smart dialogue make for a winning combination. The Rise is set against the backdrop of a broken Britain that has nothing to offer a younger generation beyond minimum wage jobs and unrealistic hopes. Released after a short prison sentence, Harvey (Luke Treadaway) wants a second chance with girlfriend Nathalie (Vanessa Kirby), he wants revenge on the local crime boss Roper (Neil Maskell) who framed him and he wants to enlist the help of his mates for a robbery that might allow him to achieve all those goals. There may be nods to The Usual Suspects and the Oceans franchise along the way but The Rise is very much its own film. The pleasures lie as much in the sarcastic banter and blokey chemistry of the four leads as they do in the mechanics of the twisted revenge plot. Treadaway gives one of his best performances, ably supported by a strong ensemble cast. Rowan Athale clearly knows how to bring out the best in his actors and lays down a marker for what should be a promising future career. Allan Hunter, Screen International

BABYGIRL
SPECTRUM
For as long as she can remember, Bronx teenager Lena (Yainis Ynoa) has watched her young mancrazy single mom Lucy (Rosa Arredono) waste her time on a series of less-than-perfect boyfriends. And even though she should be paying attention to the neighbourhood boys flirtations herself, Lena has been spending most of her time being the mother Lucy forgets to be. But when moms latest boy toy Victor (Flaco Navaja) quickly proves to be her worst suitor yet, Lena sets up a trap to expose him for the creep she thinks he is. Set in the uneasy but rhythmic streets of the Bronx, this unassuming story of a passionate Puerto Rican family comes to life with authenticity and just the right amount of restraint and naturalism. Irish-born director Macdara Vallely captures a vivid portrait of a young mother and her daughter both coming of age while crafting a likeable yet shifty character in Victor, the kind of guy who always keeps one guessing. Newcomer Yainis Ynoa gives a standout performance as the strong but clearly still innocent Lena in this finely tuned urban drama. Genna Terranova, Tribeca Film Festival

Director: Macdara Vallely / 2012 / Ireland / US Cast: Yainis Ynoa, Rosa Arredono, Flaco Navaja

BOB WILSONS LIFE AND DEATH OF MARINA ABRAMOVIC

Fri 15 Feb / Light House 3 / 6.20pm / 57 minutes

Fri 15 Feb / Cineworld 8 / 8.20pm / 100 minutes


A coming-together of four major talents is captured for posterity in Bob Wilsons Life and Death of Marina Abramovi. Directed by Giada Colagrande, the English-language Italian production is a straightforward behind-the-curtains peek with obvious interest for fans of radical theatre director Robert Wilson, performance artist Abramovi, singer/songwriter Antony Hegarty, of Antony and the Johnsons fame, and Willem Dafoe. Colagrande foregrounds extracts from the rehearsals for The Life and Death of Marina Abramovi, the Manhattan-based Serbs follow-up to the much more austerely conceptual one-woman MoMA show The Artist is Present. An elaborate affair of opulently imaginative production design with eye-catching hair, costuming and make-up effects the stage Life and Death is nevertheless a relatively conventional project by Abramovis avant-garde standards. Devised almost entirely by Wilson, the piece features occasional songs from the effortlessly transcendental Antony Hegarty and copious on-stage narration by a rasp-voiced Dafoe, who steals both show and the film with his exuberantly puckish, white-faced demon-clown persona. Upbeat talking-head interviews perkily punctuate the politically-charged on-stage shenanigans. Colagrandes spouse (Willem Dafoe) provides invaluable flashes of flinty humour, grounding what might otherwise have veered off into airy realms of precious self-congratulation. Neil Young, The Hollywood Reporter Director: Pascal Bonitzer / 2012 / France Cast: Jean-Pierre Bacri, Isabelle Carr, Kristin Scott Thomas

LOOKING FOR HORTENSE CHERCHEZ HORTENSE

Pascal Bonitzer will attend the screening Pascal Bonitzers new comedie de moeurs is a pleasant, lightweight piece of entertainment, very French in spirit. Downbeat Damien Hauer (JeanPierre Bacri, The Taste of Others), specialises in Chinese civilization, teaching businessmen how to handle their future partners in the Far East, because, as everyone knows, that is where the future lies. His theatre director wife Iva (Kristin Scott Thomas) stays out late every night preparing a Chekhov adaptation for the stage and their precocious bespectacled son Noe (Marin Orcand Tourrs) watches his parents marriage going stale. A study of characters in crisis; smart, often witty but never over-dramatised, the film benefits from a series of unforced, natural performances. Bacri, comfortable, ruffled and unshaven, looks just like the kind of academic whod be harassed by any demand taking him out of routine while Scott Thomas fits in perfectly as the spouse in need of fresh excitement without taking the time to consider the consequences. Isabelle Carr contributes a luminous presence as a restless young woman with a weakness for the wrong partners, and there is even a walk-on guest appearance by well-known stage and film director Benot Jacquot as one of Damiens chess-playing cronies.

Director: Reis elik / 2012 / Turkey Cast: Ilyas Salman, Dilan Aksut

NIGHT OF SILENCE LAL GECE

Reis elik will attend the screening Winner, Crystal Bear, Berlin International Film Festival In a remote Turkish village, an ancient blood feud between two families has finally been put to rest, and a marriage arranged to seal the union; a man (Ilyas Salman) just released from a life behind bars has been pledged to a teenage girl he has never met. It is their wedding night, and tradition demands their stained bedsheets be displayed by mornings light but, fearful of their consummation, the bride distracts her broken husband with tales, like a modern-day Scheherazade, rounding out the hours as dawn draws ever nearer. Written and edited by director Reis elik, this lyrical, compelling film trains an unhurried lens on its characters, trapped in a claustrophobic bridal chamber that neither chose. Sensitively shot and surprisingly intimate, this is a nuanced two-hander, driven by stellar performances. Brisbane International Film Festival

Director: Prasanna Vithanage / 2011 / Sri Lanka / India Cast: Shyam Fernando, Wasantha Moragoda, Anjali Patil

Prasanna Vithanage will attend the screening Acclaimed Sri Lankan director Prasanna Vithanage (Pura Handa Kaluwara, Akasa Kusum) returns with arguably his best work so far. Akin to The English Patient, it is set in the months after war and deftly explores the emotional fall-out of such trauma on the lives of ordinary people. Selvi is a beautiful but quiet Tamil refugee (powerfully played by Anjali Patil) who catches the eye of a middle-aged Buddhist pawnbroker when she comes to cash in her last jewellery. Immediately captivated, the pawnbroker follows her back to her temporary home. Discovering she is about to be wed for money to a very old man, he throws caution to the wind and offers to marry her instead. Selvi soon moves into his house and slowly falls in love with her saviour, but neither of them ever talk about their past; until an old army friend of the pawnbroker turns up, and a terrible secret emerges. Tightly scripted, with a wonderfully nuanced plot and haunting cinematography, this is Sri Lankan independent cinema at its best. Cary Sawhney, BFI London Film Festival

Director: Marcin Krzysztaowicz / 2011 / Poland Cast: Marcin Dorociski, Maciej Stuhr, Sonia Bohosiewicz Winner, Silver Lions Award, Gdynia Film Festival Manhunt finds desperate times calling for desperate measures deep in the forests of Axis-occupied Poland. Anchored by the unforced macho gravitas of Marcin Dorociskis hero, a merciless executioner for the Resistance, this sometimes visually and viscerally striking third feature for writer/helmer Marcin Krzysztaowicz is said to be inspired by a reallife figure. Wydra (Dorociski) is introduced marching a Nazicollaborating fellow Pole to his fate, and delivering a single bullet to the head. Its a job to which hes by now coldly accustomed, hesitating just long enough for proprietys sake when it turns out his next mission is to serve the same justice to old schoolfriend Henryk (Maciej Stuhr). But before he can follow through, Henryk attempts a panicked escape that results in death nonetheless albeit an accidental one. Returning from this mishap, Wydra discovers that, while absent, his entire special-ops unit has been slaughtered. Its now his obsession to uncover the informer who revealed their secret camp to the enemy, letting no personal ties stand in the way, even if they involve Henryks wife (Sonia Bohosiewicz).

Anurag Kashyap will attend the screening A brilliant collage of genres, by turns pulverizing and poetic in its depiction of violence, Variety Set in the titular district around the north-eastern Indian city of Dhanbad, Gangs of Wasseypur is an extraordinary gangland saga following two rival clans over 70 bloodstained years. Screening to critical praise during Cannes Directors Fortnight, the two-parter begins with the rise of the sadistic Shahid Khan (Jaideep Ahlawat), who makes a living impersonating a legendary train robber, Sultana Daku, and working as a hired goon for local mining boss Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia). But, threatened by Khans growing power, Singh has Khan killed, kick-starting a multi-generational, action-packed blood feud between the two rival families that lasts until the final reel. Loosely based on a true story, Gangs of Wasseypur balances brutal violence with tongue-in-cheek comedy, taking the cinematic spectacle of Bollywood and adding a healthy dose of gritty realism.

Anurag Kashyap will attend the screening

The second instalment of Anurag Kashyaps incredible crime saga, Gangs of Wasseypur Part 2 focuses on a new generation in a Wasseypur almost unrecognisable from that in Part 1. With the war between Shahid Khans philandering son Sardar (Manoj Bajpayee) and Ramadhir Singh (Tigmanshu Dhulia) now a memory but still a reason for revenge Sardars sons have found new and increasingly sophisticated criminal pursuits. But their sole ambition remains to annihilate Ramadhir Singh. Where Part 1 delves into the history of the conflict and, to an extent, of post-war India, Part 2 examines a Bollywoodobsessed generation growing up on an inheritance of vengeance. An exhilarating cocktail of carnage and comedy, Gangs of Wasseypur is an extraordinary achievement. Melbourne International Film Festival

BLIND CHANCE PRZYPADEK


OUT OF THE PAST
Strikingly modernist and compulsively watchable, European film master Krzysztof Kieslowskis 1982 Blind Chance has profoundly influenced cinematic storytelling for nearly two decades. Kieslowski (The Dekalog, Three Colours) blends his trademark passion for character and poetic imagery with a boldly novelistic narrative conceit. Blind Chance illuminates the intersection of fate, coincidence and choice. Facing an unclear future, Witek, an earnest young Polish medical student, chooses to put his education on hold. With his head full of the promising and ominous portents of his new adult life, Witek hurries to catch the last train to Warsaw. But as he races down the platform, Blind Chance blossoms into three successive scenarios in which Witeks catching or missing his train spawns three completely different futures. Whether as an idealistic Communist Party member, an ambivalent dissident or a devoted healer and husband, the young Poles destiny is shaped by the unhappy youth threatening to hobble him, the troubled present poised to engulf him and, in Kieslowskis words, the powers that meddle with our fate. Through three complex lives, actor Boguslaw Linda portrays Witek with an effortless magnetism remarkable even for a Kieslowski film. Actor and directors commitment and vision succeed in creating three entirely different portraits, each compellingly real.

LOVE, MARILYN
Director: Liz Garbus / 2012 / US

EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES
If The Artist is a love letter to the heyday of Hollywood silent cinema, then Pablo Bergers Blancanieves (the Spanish name for Snow White) is an homage to sumptuous European silent melodrama. Relocating the Grimm fairy tale to 1920s Spain and working in atmospheric black and white, Berger takes full advantage of the silent films expressive potential. Young Carmen (played as a child by Sofa Oria, and later by Macarena Garca) is the daughter of once-renowned matador Antonio Villalta (Daniel Gimnez Cacho), crippled in the ring and grieving for his wife, who died during childbirth. We are given a swift and fiery account of Carmens upbringing by her grandmother (ngela Molina), her torment at the hands of her tyrannical stepmother Encarna (Maribel Verd) and her secret schooling in the art of bullfighting. Carmen escapes Encarnas custody and joins a travelling troupe of bullfighting dwarves, eventually rising to fame under the stage name Blancanieves. Borne along by Alfonso de Vilallongas lush, vigorous score, Bergers darkly sketched fantasia weaves its exotic spin on this much-told tale. With its enthralling musical sequences, Blancanieves plunges us into a fantastical realm where the chatter of voices is replaced by the intoxicating sounds of the soul. Diana Sanchez, Toronto International Film Festival

REAL TO REEL

Marilyn Monroe invented a public persona that concealed a private side known only to her closest confidants. This is an actress who, at the height of her fame, abandoned Hollywood to study acting with Lee Strasberg because she wanted to be taken seriously. This is a wife who took pills because the husband she had saved from infamy no longer believed in her. Fifty years after her death, her creation still blazes brightly in our cultural imagination, while the creator continues to lurk in the shadows. Love, Marilyn brilliantly reverses this polarity, casting the icon aside and bringing the real woman to life. Drawing on never-before-seen personal papers, diaries and letters, Academy Award-nominated director Liz Garbus (The Farm: Angola USA, Bobby Fischer Against the World) works with acclaimed actors to evoke the multiple aspects of the real Marilyn. Elizabeth Banks, Ellen Burstyn, Glenn Close, Viola Davis, Jennifer Ehle, Lindsay Lohan, Lili Taylor, Uma Thurman, Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood appear on screen to enact Marilyns words and Garbus weaves these performances together, along with newly released out-takes, home movies, photos and interviews with Monroes closest companions to create the most intimate picture yet of an American icon we all think we know.

IN A BEDROOM W SYPIALNI
EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES

Wasilewski is clearly a young talent to watch, The Hollywood Reporter Winner, Best Actress, Koszalin Debut Films Festival Male movie directors have long had a slightly dubious fascination with female prostitutes, but thankfully this contemporary Polish drama does not pander to tired screen stereotypes about sex workers. The featurelength debut of 32-year-old writer/director Tomasz Wasilewski is an artfully shot character study that reveals its psychological depths with guarded caution. Statuesque, intense, 40-year-old beauty Edyta (Katarzyna Herman) has a neat scam going. Posing as a call girl on the internet, she meets up with wealthy men in their homes, knocks them out with sleeping pills, then steals cash or sometimes just a free bed for the night. Edytas glacially aloof surface poise begins to crack when an encounter with artist Patryk (Tomek Tyndyk) ends badly. After an initial period of distrust, these two misfits form an uneasy bond that blossoms into a budding romance. Despite his relative youth and inexperience, Wasilewski shows an impressive flair for tightly controlled emotional tone and striking geometric compositions. Eventually the characters and their motives are shaded in, and the films visual grammar becomes more conventional, but it remains an eyepleasing experience throughout.

MOTORWAY CHE SAU


SPECTRUM

full-throttle entertainment, Screen International Dont let the title fool you. After its opening scene, which resembles a multi-angle replay in your favourite driving game, very little of the action in Soi Cheangs surprisingly low-key action melodrama takes place on the open road. Most of the locations are considerably more interesting. This Kowloon cops-and-robbers pursuit thriller features car chases in a maze of small roads on a mountain top, in a darkened parking lot where the vehicles prowl like deadly sharks, and through narrow alleyways where astonishing feats of vehicular agility including an incredible ninetydegree turn are required to catch the bad guys. Restless young cop (Shawn Yue) receives the baton of ace driver from wizened partner (Anthony Wong) in a decades-long attempt to catch veteran getaway driver Xiaodong Guo. It doesnt matter how well you steer, if you lose your drive youre worse off than a broken car, says Wongs Obi-Wan like voice inside Yues head at the films climax, underlining the films fusion of man and machine, vehicle and driver as in so many of its venerable forebears. Comparisons with Nicolas Refns Drive are off the mark. Motorway is pure genre, but brings welcome variety by reining in the hyperkinetics. Dr Harvey OBrien, Lecturer in Film Studies, UCD

MERCY GNADE

Birgit Minichmayr will attend the screening Matthias Glasners polished, accessible moral melodrama is less about the eponymous virtue than assorted states of guilt. Charting the fallout of a hit-and-run fatality, this gripping if ostentatiously spare film from the director of The Free Will (JDIFF 2008) boasts pristine production values and a tersely moving performance from Birgit Minichmayr (The White Ribbon). The film is set in the remote Norwegian coastal town of Hammerfest but revolves chiefly around a German migrant family. Even the earliest peeks into the domestic life of engineer Niels (Jrgen Vogel), his nurse wife Maria (Minichmayr) and their son Markus (Henry Stange), point to a less-than-idyllic existence: interactions between the couple are politely chilly, and thats before we learn Niels has been sleeping with attractive blonde colleague Linda (Ane Dahl Torp). When Maria hits an unknown object on her drive home one night she fears the worst well before the news spreads that one of Markus schoolmates has been killed by an unidentified vehicle. Maria and Niels agree to keep mum, but guilt gnaws away at them as they become acquainted with the dead girls grieving parents.

Director: Paul Harrison / 2011 / Ireland / UK / South Africa Cast: Aidan Gillen, Thabang Sidloyi, Kelly Campbell

THE GOOD MAN

Paul Harrison will attend the screening Daring in its structure and disquieting in its message, The Good Man unfolds parallel stories in Belfast and South Africa, posing a multitude of moral questions that lead viewers to a collision with their own conscience. Michael (Aidan Gillen) is an upwardly mobile Belfast banker. Leaving a pub one night, he steals another mans cab, and when the offended party gives chase, hes struck and killed by an oncoming car. Michael is wracked with guilt. He confides in no one, his work suffers and his wife is at her wits end. Meanwhile, in a South African township, Sifiso (Thabang Sidloyi), a student with a budding political conscience, joins activists in his impoverished Cape Town settlement in diverting electricity to homes in need. One expects the two stories will intersect in clichd fashion, with Michael perhaps atoning for his sins in a manner that benefits young Sifiso. But thats only partly true, as the scope of writer/director Paul Harrisons story reaches far beyond the relatively banal tale of a stolen cab and a hit-and-run. Nothing here is simple, and the film drives that home in a way that leaves the viewer with a distinct sense of foreboding. John Anderson, Variety

CLIP KLIP
Winner, Best Director, Transylvania International Film Festival Brimming with energy, anger and a sense of youthful frustration, Clip is a film that will divide opinion, but it is also one that demands attention. Of course, teenage angst is a subject matter much beloved of film-makers, but writer/director Maja Milo shows a lot of courage with this bleak and harsh story of teenage self-destruction, with the sense of hopelessness amongst the young generation in Serbia the backdrop. Sixteen year-old Jasna (an impressive Isidora Simijonovic) lives at home with her parents and younger sister, but avoids taking part in family life. Her only real interests are posing for her mobile phone, getting drunk with her friends and pursuing Djole. She starts a relationship of sorts with Djole, which mainly involves her submitting to his every whim. Scenes and there are plenty of them of Isidora Simijonovic stripping and writhing in her underwear as she poses for the ever-present mobile phone are uncomfortable. But what saves the film is that it dives headlong into the brutal, unpleasant and desperately sad world that may be facing young Serbs as they try and fit in at all costs and become personalities that can deal with their circumstances around them.

TEDDY BEAR

Mads Matthiesen will attend the screening Winner, World Cinema Directing Award (Dramatic), Sundance Film Festival Danish director Mads Matthiesens feature recounts a gentle giants struggle to overcome crippling shyness and take hold of his life. Dennis (Kim Kold) is a mountain of tattooed muscle, a 38-year-old professional bodybuilder with a gruff face and a timid heart. Hes also got a controlling mother, Ingrid (Elsebeth Steentoft), a needy, suffocating nag who treats him like a child. Lying to his mother about his destination, Dennis travels to Thailand, setting out in search of romance. Drawn to the only place he feels at ease, Dennis wanders into a local gym where he begins a hesitant flirtation with Toi (Lamaiporn Sangmanee Hougaard), the widowed owner. Back home, he begins quietly making plans to bring Toi over. But when he tells his mother the truth about his absence, bitter reproach, spitefulness and emotional blackmail follow. The contrast between Dennis formidable physical presence and his withdrawn manner is nicely played by Kold. Seeing him so intimidated by his tiny, frail mother is both funny and moving. Teddy Bear is not the most substantial film, but it has a restrained charm and an emotional payoff in keeping with its prevailing understatement.

THE PAPERBOY

Undeniably entertaining, The Paperboy captures a corner of the American South and lines up an indelible gallery of grotesques. Film Journal International Kicked out of college, Jack Jansen (Zac Efron) moves home to the rural backwater of Moat County, Florida, earning money and passing time delivering newspapers. Then his journalist brother Ward (Matthew McConaughey) returns from Miami to investigate a miscarriage of justice that has landed a local man (John Cusack) on death row. Wards investigation is soon joined by Charlotte (Nicole Kidman), the condemned mans sultry fiance, and the obviously smitten Jack resolves to get increasingly involved in the case. Based on Pete Dexters well-received novel and adapted to the screen by Dexter and director Lee Daniels (Precious), The Paperboy positively oozes a kind of lurid, hothouse sensuality; there are plenty of revelations, but not of the kind anyone was expecting. As Charlotte, Nicole Kidman is simply terrific, conveying a kind of gritty eroticism that threatens to engulf any man who comes too close. New York Film Festival

Director: Pamela Drynan / 2012 / Ireland

WHERE I AM

Robert Drake, Pamela Drynan and producer Tristan Orpen Lynch will attend the screening In January 1999 a 35-year-old American author, Robert Drake, was viciously assaulted and left for dead by two young men in a house he was renting with his partner in Sligo town. After a court case that sought to demonise Drake as a predatory gay man, his assailants, Glen Mahon and Ian Monaghan, were sentenced to eight years in prison. Drake, unable to speak and confined to a hospital bed, was not present to represent himself at the trial. Over a decade later, Pamela Drynans intimate film follows Drake as he returns to Ireland, and Sligo, for the first time since the attack which left him permanently brain damaged, unable to walk and, crucially, stopped a writing career just as it was beginning to take flight. He visits with Colm Tobn and Dermot Healy, along with the people who took care of him after the attack, and on the pavement of a Dublin street one afternoon finds his story abruptly coming full circle. Juxtaposing lyrical imagery, particularly of the Sligo landscape, against a story of mindless brutality, Drynan mines a heartbreaking but life-affirming tale of pointless loss and hardwon redemption, the power of self respect and the complexity of forgiveness.

CLOUD ATLAS

a dizzily generous ride, scored with real grandeur, The Daily Telegraph As inventive narratives go, theres outside the box, and then theres pioneering another dimension entirely, and this collaboration among Tom Tykwer and Wachowski siblings Lana and Andy courageously attempts the latter, interlacing six seemingly unrelated stories in such a way that parallels erupt like cherry bombs in the imagination. Based on David Mitchells novel, this adaptation rejects the books innovative but overly literary format in favour of a more cinematic approach, opting to tell all half-dozen tales at once. Like juggling Ginsu blades, the tricky feat is part stunt, part skill, but undeniably entertaining. Each of the stories involves some measure of romance, beginning in 1849, with American lawyer Adam Ewing (Jim Sturgess) separated from his beloved (Doona Bae) by seafaring adventures among the Pacific Islands, and extending to the year 2346, where a lowly goatherder (Tom Hanks) falls for an emissary (Halle Berry) from the opposite end of the technological spectrum in post-apocalyptic Hawaii. Common themes echo throughout the film, where the gesture of liberating a slave in 1849 reverberates through time, culminating in a paradigm-changing insurrection whose denouement occurs two centuries later.

A TERRIBLE BEAUTY

Keith Farrell will attend the screening A Terrible Beauty offers a fresh approach to the Easter Rising, mixing archive footage with dramatic reconstructions and eyewitness accounts to tell the little-known stories of ordinary soldiers on both sides. Focusing on two areas of fierce fighting: North King Street on the north side of the Liffey and, to the south, Mount Street Bridge, the film captures the fear, confusion and tactical blunders as well as the bravery of the combatants. It follows ordinary soldiers like the Shouldice brothers, Frank and Jack, holed up around the Jameson Malt House, and Lieutenant Arthur Dickson (Hugh OConor) of the Sherwood Foresters; a young officer expecting to be sent to France who found himself marching up Northumberland Road. Writer/director Keith Farrell (Saving the Titanic JDIFF 2012) builds the tension as British troops converge on the Volunteer strongholds and reveals the human cost of the conflict in a series of compellingly restaged battle scenes. Moving, balanced and meticulously researched, A Terrible Beauty restores the ordinary soldier to the heart of the story. Alistair Daniel, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

NEIGHBOURING SOUNDS O SOM AO REDOR

captures the very fabric of Brazilian society, Variety Winner, FIPRESCI Award, Rotterdam Film Festival A dazzling ensemble drama, Neighbouring Sounds is set among a handful of residents in a middle-class street in the northern Brazilian city of Recife. Focusing on the appearance of a gang of private security guards who offer householders the promise of protection, writer/ director Kleber Mendona Filho offers revealing fragments of a society frayed by paranoia. A young man wakes up to find his girlfriends car has been broken into. A mother struggles to sleep, disturbed by the barking of guard dogs next door. An ageing patriarch seeks refuge from the tumult of the ever-changing city in the rural peace of his one-time plantation hideaway. The results thrillingly defy categorisation, but what emerges under Filhos precise, quietly virtuoso direction is a film of novelistic richness and sly provocation; a kind of urban horror story about the fear of violence that ripples under the fragile poise of everyday middle-class life in Brazil. This is a directorial debut of astonishing assurance. Edward Lawrenson, BFI London Film Festival

THE BODY EL CUERPO

darkly fascinating, full of secrets and highly polished, Variety Following the murder of pharmaceutical company heiress Mayka Villaverde (Beln Rueda), her body mysteriously disappears from the morgue. Quick-tempered police detective Jaime Pea (Jos Coronado) is right on the case, immediately suspecting the dead womans two-timing husband, lex Ulloa (Hugo Silva). The intense investigation, taking place during the course of a single night, is intertwined with flashbacks of Villaverdes and Ulloas complicated relationship. The heiress, it seems, has been callously manipulating her husband. The short time frame of the investigation creates a feeling of events playing out in real time, making The Body an intense, enthralling and darkly fascinating crime thriller. Following in the steps of last years successful Spanish horror wave, The Body wont let fans of the genre down. With influences from Hitchcock and Rob Reiners Misery, the film keeps the audience in suspense, from the first terrifying scene to the final revelation.

When their Nazi SS parents are taken into Allied custody, five siblings are left to fend for themselves. Teenage Lore (Saskia Rosendahl) takes charge, and the children set out to join their grandmother in Hamburg, some 900km away. Along the journey, the children encounter a populace suffering from post-war denial and deprivation, and for the first time are exposed to the consequences of their parents actions. With food hard to come by, and the journey becoming ever more dangerous, the children meet Thomas (Kai-Peter Malina), a young Jewish survivor who helps them negotiate their way through tricky situations. Lore is both repulsed by and attracted to Thomas. All that she has been taught leads her to believe that he is the enemy, but his industriousness, generosity and physicality prove alluring. A coming-of-age tale set against the backdrop of a changing world, Lore shows new life emerging out of darkness with great intelligence and subtlety.

The ladies like him and not just because of what he can do with their hair. And George surely likes the ladies. In the brief period in which we see him, he is going with Goldie Hawn, and he is very vulnerable to an old flame, Julie Christie, the mistress of Jack Warden, whose wife, Lee Grant, is also determined to have Georges dryer on her hair. Shampoo grew out of the friendship between Beatty and his house writer, Robert Towne. It takes place on election day in 1968 (the first Nixon victory), and it is not just a portrait of sexual promiscuity and of having ones life ruled by ones dryer, but a panorama of LA too. Shampoo is very funny when it is most urgent, as with Julie Christie under the table and Warren trying to keep his aplomb. This may be as close as we have come to a modern screwball classic we can only marvel that it doesnt stimulate imitation. David Thomson

A CUBE OF SUGAR YE HABE GHAND


SPECTRUM
The youngest daughter of a large Iranian family, Pasandide (Negar Javaherian), is getting married. The day before the wedding, her sisters, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and grandparents all gather at the family compound of Uncle Ezzatolah (Saeed Poursamimi). The women cook, sew, gossip, and tease; the nephews try to frighten each other with ghost stories; one uncle digs for buried treasure while another worries about bad news from his doctor. In honour of the happy couple, there are presents, music and a lavish feast. Yet before the ceremony can take place, a single sugar cube transforms the event into something quite different. Director Seyyed Reza Mir-Karimi (So Close, So Far) captures the proceedings with imagery that is a celebration in its own right; vibrant with light and colour, sometimes slipping into slow motion as if to linger in the beauty of these moments some special, some quite ordinary that make up the fabric of life itself.

SPECTRUM
Dense and enthralling, The Daily Telegraph With Blue Valentine, Derek Cianfrance established himself as a director of intense emotion and unblinking intimacy. In this, his highly anticipated follow-up, Cianfrance re-teams with his Blue Valentine star Ryan Gosling and delves even deeper into themes of male anxiety and suppressed violence. This haunting, multi-generational family drama draws a portrait of contemporary masculinity that is detailed, epic and true. Gosling plays Luke, a motorcycle stunt rider and habitual loner who works for a travelling carnival, roaming from town to town. After reuniting with his sometime girlfriend Romina (Eva Mendes), Luke discovers that he has fathered a son. Determined to meet his responsibility but unable to support a family, Luke opts to start robbing banks. On one heist he draws the pursuit of rookie cop Avery (Bradley Cooper). It proves a fateful confrontation. The Place Beyond the Pines works beautifully as a crime thriller, but Cianfrance goes further. As the story proceeds and turns surprising corners, it evolves into a study of vengeance, memory and fate. And as Cianfrance deepens the mastery of mood and tone he displayed in Blue Valentine, his film exerts an intoxicating pull. Cameron Bailey, Toronto International Film Festival

SIDE EFFECTS

Sun 17 Feb / Light House 1 / 2.45pm / 136 minutes


In 1989, Steven Soderbergh transformed the independent film business with the Sundance winner Sex, Lies and Videotape, since then he has followed a fascinating and intensely individual path. Increasingly prolific in recent years, his filmography is filled with eclectic choices, alternating commercial productions (Out of Sight, Erin Brockovich, Traffic, the Oceans Eleven movies) with digital experiments (Full Frontal, Bubble, The Girlfriend Experience, etc.) and adventurous independent fare (Kafka, King of the Hill, Schizopolis, The Limey, Che, etc.). A guest of the film in 2010, we are delighted to include his new film. Side Effects is a riveting, psychological thriller starring Jude Law, Rooney Mara, Catherine ZetaJones and Channing Tatum. When Emily Taylor (Mara) is faced with her husbands release from prison for insider trading, she finds herself plagued with a clinical depression. Psychiatrist Jonathan Banks (Law) struggles to treat her; but when a new prescription drug has some unexpected side effects, both Emily and Banks find themselves down dark paths they never could have foreseen.

THE PERVERTS GUIDE TO IDEOLOGY


Director: Sophie Fiennes / 2012 / UK / Ireland

Sophie Fiennes will attend the screening The Perverts Guide to Ideology sees the return of confrontational psychoanalyst Slavoj iek, who continues his search for the hidden languages of films following the 2006 cult documentary The Perverts Guide to Cinema. In this freestanding sequel Fiennes and iek elaborate on the idea of films as collective fantasies that shape our beliefs and practices, by examining how films are an integral part of our society. A high-concept documentary on what psychoanalysis can tell us about ideology viewed in film, The Perverts Guide to Ideology is a must for the cineaste that seeks profound yet accessible analysis of the classics. Fiennes follows iek as he examines a wide range of films, from Robert Wises classic epic The Sound of Music to John Carpenters alien invasion B-movie They Live. iek analyzes several other well-known titles, including Stanley Kubricks Full Metal Jacket and Martin Scorseses Taxi Driver, giving us fresh new perspectives on films that have been loved by audiences for years.

An ex-con learns the value of friendship in Jerry Schatzbergs picaresque road movie. Trying to hitch a ride on a desolate California road, fresh-out-of-prison Max (Gene Hackman) meets ex-sailor Lion (Al Pacino). They are both headed east, as Max dreams of opening a deluxe car wash in Pittsburgh and Lion believes that the wife and child he left behind will still welcome him home. The two decide to journey together, forging an increasingly deep yet uncertain friendship, as Lion teaches Max how not to be so pugnacious and Max senses Lions fragility. When the pair hits Detroit, Lion finally gets in touch with his wife and discovers how she really feels. When Lion is shattered by the revelation, Max must decide if he should forge on alone or sacrifice his carefully guarded savings to help his friend. Pacinos first film after his triumph in The Godfather, and Hackmans follow-up to The Poseidon Adventure and his Oscar for The French Connection, Scarecrow won the 1973 Palme dOr at the Cannes Film Festival, but the two stars were not enough to make it a hit. Even so, their nuanced performances enhance this moody study of contemporary dislocation.

SUMMER IN FEBRUARY

OUT OF THE PAST

EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES

Veteran director Christopher Menaul (Fatherland, The Forsyte Saga) directs this compelling true story of love among bohemian artists on the eve of the First World War. Adapted from Jonathan Smiths novel, Summer in February follows Florence Carter-Wood (Emily Browning), an aspiring artist who takes refuge from her fathers choice of suitor at Lamorna, a windswept artists colony in Cornwall. There she finds herself torn between Captain Gilbert Evans (Dan Stevens), a Boer War veteran and consummate gentleman, and AJ Munnings (Dominic Cooper), a hot-tempered and visionary artist. But when Florence acquiesces to a hasty marriage, she quickly begins to feel trapped. Menaul captures the vertiginous cliffs and sparkling light of the Cornish coast but holds the melodrama at bay as the tension builds. Australian actress Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) is utterly convincing as Florence, while Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia, My Week with Marilyn) brings a convincing passion to Munnings and Dan Stevens is characteristically dignified as lovesick Captain Evans. An excellent supporting cast is enlivened by brief cameos from Camille OSullivan and English folk star Seth Lakeman. Alistair Daniel, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

28 HOTEL ROOMS

[an] incisive and tender look into the complexity of a relationship, The Hollywood Reporter The romantic and emotional complications involved in sustaining a years-long affair gets sensitive, intelligent examination in 28 Hotel Rooms, a deceptively simple but endlessly intriguing drama. Propelled by the chemistry of leads Chris Messina and Marin Ireland (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), the feature debut of writer/director Matt Ross has a fetching hook, offering a look into the ups and downs of an adulterous couple entirely through their 28 encounters in different hotels. But what could easily have been a gimmick turns out to be a smart, incisive way to illustrate how every love affair eventually comes with strings attached. As its title indicates, the film consists of a series of sequences each in a different hotel room between an unnamed New York writer (Messina) and a Seattle accountant (Ireland) over the span of several years. When they have their first fling, shes married, but as they continue to meet up for secret sexual trysts, he gets involved with a serious girlfriend as well. Moral watchdogs wont be pleased with Ross non-judgmental treatment, but 28 Hotel Rooms is nonetheless incredibly moving in its depiction of the challenges of making love last even if its a love thats a betrayal of others.

THE GATEKEEPERS SHOMEREI HASAF

one hot, provocative, revelatory and astonishing documentary, The Hollywood Reporter Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature The brutal recent history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is rivetingly recounted by some of its most prominent players in The Gatekeepers. Granted an extraordinary level of access to six former heads of Israels Shin Bet counter-terrorism agency, firsttime documaker Dror Moreh achieves a powerful and remarkably clear-eyed assessment of how state-sanctioned violence, whether pre-emptive or retaliatory, has exacted a crippling moral toll on the region and its pursuit of peace. Morehs coup lies in not only lining up the six men who oversaw Israels internal intelligence-gathering operations at various intervals from 1980 to the present, but in getting them to speak with such unprecedented and seemingly unguarded candour about their activities. While no film from the narrow perspective of Israeli intelligence could purport to offer a thorough view of the conflict, what makes The Gatekeepers ultimately so compelling is its pervasive sense of moral ambiguity. Although the men were interviewed separately, their voices ultimately coalesce into a sustained chorus of despair, decrying the futility of violence as a political imperative and the cruelty and corruption of Israel since the late 60s.

Lothar befriends young Lou (Luzie Ahrens) and together they are drawn further and deeper into the inexplicable, dangerous movement that has taken hold of the country, travelling through dark forests and abandoned villages. Evoking the tale of The Pied Piper, director Jan Speckenbach traces the gap that has opened between generations with imagination and childlike wonderment. But unlike the old fairy tale, this films Ratcatcher is a child himself or perhaps, many children at once.

JOHN DIES AT THE END

SPECTRUM

On the street, they call it soy sauce. Its a paranormal, psychoactive drug that promises an out-of-body experience with each hit. Its users drift across time and dimensions, but some who come back are devoid of all humanity. While most of Earths inhabitants remain blissfully oblivious to its threat make no mistake an otherworldly invasion is under way, and mankind needs to be saved. Enter John and David, a pair of college dropouts who can barely hold down jobs. How can these guys possibly be expected to rescue mankind from certain destruction? Originally erupting from the devilishly ingenious mind of David Wong, alter ego of Cracked.coms senior editor Jason Pargin, John Dies at the End began as a web serial that became an internet phenomenon. In the highly capable hands of legendary cult horror director Don Coscarelli (Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep), Pargins wildly trippy vision is forged into big-screen eye candy. The end result will take you to places in your subconscious that you shouldnt be allowed to visit. Adam Montgomery, Sundance Film Festival

WHITE TIGER BELYY TIGR


SPECTRUM

Karen Shakhnazarov will attend the screening Russian director Karen Shakhnazarov (Ward No. 6 JDIFF 2010) never ceases to experiment, with both subject matter and style. WWII-set White Tiger is his first war film, a weird, wondrous tale of an eerie white fascist tank that appears, attacks and vanishes, leaving smouldering Russian tanks and cremated corpses in its wake. Russian soldiers, happening upon a destroyed tank division, discover a blackened tank driver with burns on 90% of his body; he not only survives but miraculously heals in three weeks, unscarred. Born of war, remembering nothing of his former life, the renamed Ivan Naydenov (Aleksey Vertkov) claims to have gained the mystical ability to communicate with armoured vehicles and to have been assigned the mission of destroying the White Tiger. As head of Mosfilm, Shakhnazarov commandeers the studios huge fleet of vintage, fully functional WWII tanks, and deploys them brilliantly. The battles are masterful, culminating in a spooky game of hideand-seek in a European ghost town that qualifies as an unmitigated tour de force. Vertkov completely convinces as the wacko communing with a higher being, while Vitaliy Kishchenkos Mayor Fedotov perfectly mirrors the audiences conflicted belief. Ronnie Scheib, Variety

Director: Fritz Lang / 1928 / Germany Cast: Rudolf Klein-Rogge, Gerda Maurus, Willy Fritsch

SPECIAL PRESENTATION
In a special appearance at JDIFF, the film will be accompanied by pianist, violinist and composer Gnther Buchwald After the embarrassing commercial failure of Metropolis (1927), director Fritz Lang was driven to make a film with greater popular appeal. He hoped to repeat the success of his earlier thriller Dr Mabuse, der Spieler (1922), and so effectively reworked this film as Spione (1928), based on a novel by his then wife Thea von Harbou. Like Langs first Mabuse film, Spione is very much the prototype for the modern adventure thriller. Theres a seriously evil criminal mastermind, a tough and charismatic hero, an attractive femme fatale, and a plot with more twists and turns than you can count. Here, the said criminal mastermind is played by Rudolf Klein-Rogge, famous for his sinister portrayals of mad scientist Rotwang in Metropolis and the unscrupulous Dr Mabuse in Langs first two Mabuse films. Spies is one of Langs best films. That means one of the best films ever made. Film Comment Spione is a masterfully composed thriller, skilfully employing expressionistic motifs to suggest a sense of dark menace, with some meticulously edited action sequences. That Lang was influenced by the crime serials of French director Louis Feuillade is more than evident, although there is also a hint of the realism that the director would achieve with his next and most famous thriller, M (1931).

EAT SLEEP DIE TA SOVA D


Winner, Critics Week Award, Venice Film Festival A Swede of Balkan descent, twentysomething Raa (Nermina Luka) isnt the kind of person who would normally catch your eye. Slightly overweight and shabbily dressed, she resembles a descendant of Bressons Mouchette. But Raa isnt nearly as forlorn as her cinematic predecessors: despite having little or no money, she forges numerous friendships, takes pride in her job (shes the fixer on the floor of the packing plant where she works), has a loving relationship with her father, and is part of a tight, supportive enclave of migrs from Eastern Europe. However, Raas provisionally happy existence is about to be disrupted. The packing plant is looking for efficiencies. As Raas support network fragments and dissolves, she is confronted with a painful choice: leave her father and her friends for a new job in a different part of Sweden, or face permanent unemployment. Possibly the most exciting first feature to emerge from Sweden since Fucking ml, Gabriela Pichlers Eat Sleep Die is a heart-wrenching account of the new Europe under globalization. Directed with sensitivity and profound emotional insight by Pichler, Eat Sleep Die boasts brilliant performances from the largely non-professional cast led by Luka, who is simply unforgettable as the indomitable Raa.

IN THE HOUSE DANS LA MAISON


EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES

an intriguingly subversive drama, Screen International Winner, Golden Shell, San Sebastin International Film Festival Franois Ozons seductive new film is perhaps his strongest work since Swimming Pool; a delicious, teasing reflection on mentoring, the creative process and the very nature of fiction, charged with the same flavourful air of dangerous sensuality and subversive humour that first put its French writer/director on the map. Literature teacher Germain (Fabrice Luchini) is beyond despair over his students refusal to engage. So when, as a written assignment, Claude (Ernst Umhauer) turns in a meticulously detailed account of his weekend thats as psychologically intriguing as it is ethically troubling, Germain is hooked. Claudes serialised soap opera revolves around the normal middle-class family of his fellow student Rapha (Bastien Ughetto), a source of envy and desire. But the real object he covets is Raphas exquisitely bored mother Esther (Emmanuelle Seigner). As we watch each new episode unfold, Germain shares the chapters with his frustrated wife Jeanne (Kristin Scott Thomas, in fine acerbic form). Doing a complete switch from his more comic roles and his obnoxious character in Ozons Potiche (JDIFF 2011), Luchini plays a richly contradictory figure here. Part poignant sad sack, part uptight prig and part exploitative predator, his participation in Claudes story becoming almost maniacally voyeuristic.

Conor Masterson will attend the screening Accomplished photographer Conor Masterson shot this exhilarating documentary on The Frames, one of the most enduring Irish music acts, over 18 months beginning in 2010 (their 20th anniversary). Part insightful documentary, part concert film, this is less an examination of the bands origins than an exploration of their musicianship and their need, as Glen Hansard says, to learn how to dance with strangers while performing. Mastersons extensive knowledge of the band results in him eliciting direct, candid interviews, with discussions on the nature of music and collaboration (and tea) particularly fascinating. He also captures hair-raising concert footage, allowing us to experience their fierce energy from multiple angles. While the renowned, intangible electricity produced at live performances by The Frames is impossible to fully capture on film, Masterson comes damn close. The evolving dynamic between band members over the years is on display here, as it was at Glens recent extraordinary 4-hour solo Dublin gig where the full band performed. The film is a deftly constructed and beautifully shot celebration of music and friendship. For their legion of devoted fans, this is a welcome treasure. For those unacquainted, do yourself a favour go and meet the band in the deep shade. Glenn Hogarty

PIET

offers up the directors vintage blend of cruelty, wit and moral complexity, Variety Winner, Golden Lion, Venice Film Festival Korean festival favourite Kim Ki-duk is back in fighting form in Piet, an intense and, for the first hour, sickeningly violent film that unexpectedly segues into a moving psychological study. Blank-faced young Kang-do (Jeong-jin Lee) is the collector for a loan shark; his method is to make his victims sign an insurance policy that guarantees them money should they become disabled at work. When they dont make their payments, Kang-do chops off their hands or crushes them in machines, or throws them off empty buildings to cripple them and collect the insurance money. One day, out of the blue, a woman professing to be his mother turns up on his doorstep. Kang-do, who has never known tenderness in his life, falls under his mothers spell and she becomes the most important thing in the world for him. When the big twist finally comes, this bleak downer of a film suddenly turns to poetry; a painful, melancholic ode to the human condition, clinched by a mournful final song.

E A R LY E V E N I N G EVENING

Tomi Ungerer and Brad Bernstein will attend the screening a detailed portrait of his strong-willed, outspoken (in three languages) and occasionally hilarious subject, Variety Artist Tomi Ungerer rose to prominence in the late 1950s as the creator of acclaimed childrens books such as Crictor, Emile and The Three Robbers. I dare say, no one was as original, says Maurice Sendak. Tomi influenced everybody. In the 1960s he drew iconic protest posters for the anti-war and civil rights movements. Fuelled by his own desires, he created lavish books of erotica. But when his adult work came to the attention of the American Library Association in the early 1970s, his childrens books were effectively banned. He relocated from New York City to Nova Scotia, then Ireland, where he maintains a low profile today. Director Brad Bernstein performs a laudable act of rediscovery by tracking down Ungerer, and what comes forth is an extraordinary artistic portrait. Ungerer speaks with a twinkle in his eye and a gift with language thats equal to his drawing talents. As for the explicit drawings that once got him in trouble: by todays standards they could serve as illustrations for Fifty Shades of Grey. But that doesnt mean society has caught up with Ungerer. Hes still more far out than most of us will ever get. Thom Powers, Toronto International Film Festival

REBELLION LORDRE ET LA MORALE

Mon 18 Feb / Light House 1 / 8.15pm / 90 minutes


Frances maverick film-maker Mathieu Kassovitz (La Haine) returns in full form as the star, director and co-writer for this major production about a botched uprising attempt by a handful of New Caledonian separatists who asked for their independence in April 1988, just as presidential elections were about to take place in France. As socialist President Franois Mitterand faced right-wing Prime Minister Jacques Chirac in the race for the presidency, the New Caledonia crisis turned into just one more weapon for them to wave against each other. The media threw oil on the fire and mixed messages were sent to the forces dispatched to restore order, all of which lead to a brutal military response and many unnecessary victims among the native Kanaks. Based on the memoirs of Captain Philippe Legorjus (played by Kassovitz himself), who led the police unit in the field, Rebellion looks for all purposes like a tightly made action drama, with effective top notch camera work, nervous editing to pump energy in every scene, and a cast driven to perform at full steam.

The Hardy Bucks Movie is a gleefully unhinged crowdpleaser with an inherently Irish sense of humour. That sense of humour takes them to strange places, both comedically and geographically it is a road trip movie, after all and really allows the gifted cast to go all out. Their strand of comedy feels improvised but also serves to engage the audience in new ways, with the main cast but particularly lead man The Viper himself (Chris Tordoff) turning in very strong performances.

THE DEEP DJPID

[a] masterful blend of sound and fury, Screen International In 1984, when a fishing boat capsizes off the coast of Iceland, Gulli, the lone survivor, spends several hours in the near-freezing North Atlantic waters. His inexplicable some would say miraculous survival makes him a media magnet and a scientific curiosity; he is poked and prodded by incredulous experts in an attempt to understand how he could have survived such an ordeal. But it is the immense sadness of his experience that stays with Gulli; he fundamentally rejects the notion that he is somehow remarkable: All I did was save my own life, he says; wouldnt anyone have tried that?

STRINGS

Rob Savage will attend the screening An astonishing achievement, Cinevue Winner, Raindance Award, British Independent Film Award Just making a feature is an achievement; doing it for 3,000 is particularly impressive. Doing it as a writer/director/photographer and turning 18 on the first day of the shoot is surely the sign of a fantastic film-maker announcing his presence. Rob Savages Strings is a refreshingly honest and painfully raw account of teenage romance. The story follows four young people and their romantic endeavours in that blissful summer before they leave home to go to university. Grace (Philine Lembeck) is a visiting German student, soon to return home. She falls for the quiet, distant Jon (played by an excellent Oliver Malam), whilst her best friend Scout (Hannah Wilder) becomes entangled in an increasingly violent relationship with her long-term boyfriend Chris (Akbar Ali). The four lead actors rise to the challenge of portraying the confusion of teenage romance. Credit to Mr Savage for reining in their performances to create a muted, nuanced piece. Everything from the sparse use of sound, the interspersed smatterings of German, and the lighting create an almost haunting effect, drawing you in and immersing you in the story. Surely a talent for the future. Krystyna Kosciuszko, Raindance Film Festival

THE KING OF PIGS DWAE-JI-UI WANG

this satire on class inequality burns like acid, The Hollywood Reporter Winner, NETPAC Award, Busan International Film Festival A daring, disturbing and violent animated film about bullying, social status and class difference, The King of Pigs marks a brave new direction for Korean animation. Kyung-min, a virtually bankrupt businessman, and journalist Jong-suk were once classmates in middle school. They reunite 15 years later and talk about their school days, in which the rich and powerful students were called dogs and the poor ones pigs. This social distinction created an atmosphere that allowed the privileged to abuse the less fortunate. The hierarchies and systematic humiliations are questioned by no one, and condoned by the schools teachers - at least until the arrival of Chul, who takes on the dogs with a clarity of purpose and brutality not seen before in the school. He becomes Kyung-min and Jong-suks hero, fighting their battles and toughening them up. But the relationship between the hero and his followers is a complex one, and the film gradually reveals the lingering effects of a childhood marred by inhumanity. The darkness of the story is matched by stark and brutal imagery, making The King of Pigs a truly visionary and uncompromising work of art.

PIAZZA FONTANA: THE ITALIAN CONSPIRACY ROMANZO DI UNA STRAGE

Tues 19 Feb / Cineworld 8 / 3.30pm / 125 minutes

the film superbly re-creates the atmosphere of tension that characterized the period, The Hollywood Reporter December 1969: A bank in Milan is blown up, killing 17 people. An anarchist leader with impeccable credentials dies while being interrogated. Prosecutors, judges and the government struggle to get at the truth, never knowing who within their ranks may be listening in. Marco Tullio Giordana (The Best of Youth) investigates a devastating true story of political violence with remarkable clarity, precision and elegance. He depicts a Machiavellian labyrinth of deceit, featuring political extremists, police conspiracy, informants and spies. Comedy star Valerio Mastandrea plays the anguished police commissioner, Pierfrancesco Favino is the martyred activist, and Fabrizio Gifuni the nations future prime minister and eventual victim of Red Brigades terrorism. All are superb, as Giordana sets the stage for 30 years of Italian violence and resistance.

LIKE SOMEONE IN LOVE

Like Someone in Love plays out like a haiku there seems to be no beginning or end, and each scene offers a multitude of possibilities, The Japan Times The Iranian director Abbas Kiarostamis wondrous new film is set in Tokyo, where Akiko (Rin Takanashi), a young prostitute working her way through university studies, is pressured by her firmly paternal pimp to see a john that night despite her prior appointment with her grandmother. The next morning, Takashi (Tadashi Okuno), the client, an elderly retired professor and independent scholar, drives her to school, where, thrown together with her fianc (Ryo Kase), the old man rapidly assumes a surprisingly active and beneficent role in her life. The storys sentimental and fable-like contours, emphasized by Kiarostamis distinctive blend of analytical stylization and documentary avidity, throw character traits into sharply foregrounded relief. From the very first shot in a bar, where the action is sparked by an off-camera voice, he revitalizes the ordinary by means of his extraordinary powers of perception and juxtaposition. The many trips through Tokyo, filmed incisively from moving vehicles, infuse the rich texture of the city with a startling emotional intensity and a sense of teeming ambient drama; the storys loose ends lead deep into the fabric of intertwined lives.

Richard Goldgewicht will attend the screening A wonderful delve into the life and talent of the renowned film title designer, artist, trailer maker and full-on bohemian Pablo Ferro, this enthralling documentary is a must for any lover of cinema. An astute and entertaining blend of interviews, extracts and animation, Richard Goldgewichts film is appropriately delightfully designed and quite brilliantly narrated by Jeff Bridges, who brings a suitable Dudes sensibility to the story of a man who embraced hippydom and all that entails. With contributions from the likes of George Segal, Beau Bridges, Jon Voight, Andy Garcia and Anjelica Huston, the film is a wonderful celebration of Pablo Ferros work on films such as Dr Strangelove, Stop Making Sense, Midnight Cowboy and Bullitt. He discusses with modesty how he created the multiple screen effects at the start of The Thomas Crown Affair and how Stanley Kubrick turned to him to create the staccato trailer for A Clockwork Orange. There are also contributions from his wife, children and former girlfriends who help deal with the darker aspects of life in the 1960s and his unconventional approach to fatherhood.

SOMETHING IN THE AIR APRS MAI


Director: Olivier Assayas / 2012 / France Cast: Clment Mtayer, Lola Crton, Felix Armand

Olivier Assayas will attend the screening and will participate in a discussion of European Cinema on Wed 20 Feb. See p.119 for details. Made with the bittersweet clarity of hindsight and the assurance of a director in peak form, Something in the Air is Olivier Assayas wise and wistful memory piece on the revolutionary fervour that suffused his young adulthood. Conjuring the mood and attitudes of 1970s counter-culture with pinpoint detail and nary a shred of naive romanticism, this tender but dispassionate semi-autobiographical drama offers a gentle rebuke to the celebratory spirit of many post-68 movies. A moody, dark-haired teen with a talent for drawing and painting, Gilles (Clment Mtayer) has been profoundly shaped by the tumult of May 1968. Gilles and his friends mobilize themselves, covering their school with graffiti slogans by night. But when a guard is injured during a Molotov-cocktail assault gone awry, several of them seek to avoid suspicion by heading abroad for the summer. Gilles takes up with Christine (Lola Crton, last seen in Mia Hansen-Lves Goodbye, First Love), who shares his film-making aspirations but has very different ideas about how to fulfil them. Something in the Air quietly demystifies its subject. The tone of the piece is wryly affectionate but never indulgent; the experiences depicted feel emotionally true and lived-in without ever catching the viewer up in a rush of intoxication or excitement.

EVERYBODY HAS A PLAN TODOS TENEMOS UN PLAN

SPECTRUM

Viggo Mortensens trademark quiet strength and enigmatic stillness work to impressive effect in Ana Piterbargs moody and evocative drama Everybody Has a Plan, set against the backdrop of Argentinas tough and isolated Tigre Delta. In Buenos Aires, Agustn (Mortensen) leads a comfortable life as a doctor. But he is depressed and restless, and when his wife (Soledad Villamil) wants to adopt a child he very gently snaps. His wife goes away on business, but the next day his identical twin brother Pedro (also Mortensen) arrives on an unexpected visit. Pedro announces that he has a terminal illness and, in a sudden decision, Agustn takes Pedros identity and travels to the Tigre Delta, where the two brothers spent their youth. Agustn finds himself embroiled in Pedros criminal past, and inheriting the vendettas of old, murderous acquaintances. Beautifully shot by Lucio Bonelli, the film is nicely constructed by debut writer/director Ana Piterbarg who layers in gentle twists and turns and keeps the story suspenseful. Though at heart Everybody Has a Plan is an old-fashioned crime film, it is packed with intriguing personalities facing tough decisions in an attempt to find the right life for them.

BROKEN SONG

Claire Dix will attend the screening Reel Art is an Arts Council scheme designed to provide film artists with a unique opportunity to make highly creative, imaginative and experimental documentaries on an artistic theme. People look at us and they see the stereotype, theyre this, theyre thattheyre scumbags. Youve got to show them how good you are, youve got to whip out a tune that they couldnt write in their dreams. Git This documentary asks whether art and artistic expression can allow us to look beyond the facts of someones past and see into their soul. Git, Costello and Willa Lee are street poets, hip-hop artists and songwriters from north Dublin. For these young men self-expression in the form of poetry, rap and song has become a spiritual experience. Their aim is simply to articulate the chaos that surrounds them and to fight it with their words and voices alone. Along the way it has become their identity, their religion and, as they claim themselves, they are its high priests. In the end, the place where they live and their words are one and the same, constantly in flux, full of darkness and light. It is proof that these suburbs that have bred darkness, murder and hate have also inspired poetry and these unlikely artists are using words alone to fight back. Film-makers statement

VANISHING WAVES

Kristina Buoyte will attend the screening Special Jury Mention, Karlovy Vary Film Festival A bold, visionary work of science fiction cinema that that is equally occupied by the erotic as well as the fantastic, Vanishing Waves recalls the genre in its cerebral 1960s and 70s golden age, just as it simultaneously forges new territory with its unique fusion of emotional melodrama and hallucinatory widescreen spectacle. A major young talent, director Kristina Buoyte has created one of the most accomplished and distinctive European films in recent memory. Lukas (Marius Jampolskis) is assisting a scientific research team by functioning as a patient in a series of heavily monitored (and medicated) sensory deprivation experiments wherein he is attempting to make some form of contact with Aurora (Jurga Jutaite), a young woman locked in a comatose state. The experiment takes an unexpected twist when Lukas and Aurora develop a strong psychic link and their link quickly evolves into a romantic, sexually charged relationship. Exploring the tantalizing possibilities of forming a true, all-encompassing bond with ones lover, Vanishing Waves is hypnotic, erotic, wholly engrossing and wildly thought-provoking cinema that transcends any perceived limitations of the science fiction genre, becoming one of the years most provocative films in the process.

Catherine Owens and Colin Dunne will attend the screening In Colin Dunne - Sculpting Space, New Yorkbased Irish artist Catherine Owens gives us an exquisite 3D glimpse into traditional Irish dancer Colin Dunnes journey from his childhood world championship days to ensemble work with Riverdance, through Dancing on Dangerous Ground, to his groundbreaking solo show Out Of Time. Owens traces Colins achievements as a leading figure in traditional Irish dance, and his transition into the more revealing world of contemporary dance and theatre thus illuminating the thought process of an unflinching artist who constantly seeks to push his own boundaries. 3D excerpts from Colin Dunnes extraordinary Out Of Time are contextualised by interviews with artists who have influenced and supported him over three decades. Owens gives us a ringside seat as Dunne explores his art form, interrogating the solo tradition while connecting with, and paying homage to, unsung and unpretentious masters of the form. Well known for her work with U2, director Catherine Owens is also a pioneer of 3D film. The New York Times hailed her directorial debut U23D as the first IMAX movie to be called a work of art. Owens film is a refreshing and thoughtful look into the creative process of the solo artist. Deirdre Mulrooney

ARBITRAGE

What a killer actor Richard Gere can be when a movie rises to his level. His rapt, watchful performance is a thing of toxic beauty. Rolling Stone Richard Gere was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor Nicholas Jarecki makes an auspicious directorial debut with this taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. Arbitrage buying low and selling high depends on a persons ability to determine the true value of any given market. Its a talent that has made billionaire hedge fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) the very portrait of success in American business. But on the eve of his sixtieth birthday, Miller finds himself desperately trying to sell his trading empire to a major bank before the extent of his fraud is discovered. When an unexpected, bloody error challenges his perception of what things are worth, Miller finds that his business is not the only thing hanging in the balance. Building on the chemistry and charisma of an outstanding cast, including Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Brit Marling, Tim Roth, and Nate Parker, Jarecki leads us through the slick and duplicitous limits of impunity and composes an anatomy of the way asset bubbles can burst.

JUMP

Kieron J Walsh will attend the screening A delightfully dark comic crime thriller that twists and turns through its interweaving storyline, this stylishly made film relishes its intricate plotting and smooth shooting style. Set against the backdrop of New Years Eve in Derry, it tracks three interlocking storylines as a series of troubled and sad souls make their way through the night. At the core of the film is a charming and charismatic performance from Nichola Burley who has never been better as depressed Greta, the daughter of local mobster Frank Feeney (Lalor Roddy). Set to commit suicide by jumping from Derry Peace Bridge, she is stopped from leaping by Pearse Kelly (Martin McCann), who doesnt know who she is, but has his own reasons for hating her father. The pair set off into the night and find themselves caught up in a strange series of events. In amidst the elegantly shot drama there are some delicious moments of black humour as the story (based on Lisa McGees stage play) weaves its way through the city. Jump is a smart and charming little gem of a movie. Mark Adams, Screen International

1 6 February
We are delighted to bring Picture House back into the programme for 2013, after it garnered much success in 2012. For 2013, we will introduce two short Buster Keaton silent films: One Week and Cops, which will be screened in six care centres around Dublin. Two of the care centres will see an added twist this year as the short films will be screened with live musical accompaniment from Morgan Cooke. Each screening comes with a side order of ice cream, courtesy of HB. JDIFFs outreach programme has long been an integral part of the festival, bringing the magic of cinema to people who would otherwise be unable to take part. Over the years weve organised screenings in everything from hospitals to prisons, and last year we took the festival to ten care centres throughout Dublin. We called the initiative Picture House. Morgan Cooke is composer-in-residence and performer with Branar Drmaochta, who perform puppet theatre for children. Morgan has been performing improvised live soundtracks to silent movies since 2009, beginning with Metropolis. Morgan is also a voiceover artist, and worked on TG4s version of Jim Hensons Fraggle Rock. Academy Awardwinning actress Brenda Fricker is the patron of Picture House for a second year running. Thanks to all the participating venues and to Age & Opportunity. Morgan Cooke

POST TENEBRAS LUX

Winner, Best Director, Cannes Film Festival From his auspicious debut feature Japn onward, Mexican iconoclast Carlos Reygadas has proven himself one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary cinema. With Post Tenebras Lux (After Darkness, Light), his most personal and demanding film to date, Reygadas eschews narrative chronology in favour of a kaleidoscopic vision of a family sliding between tenderness and violence, guilt and repentance. A little girl wanders alone on an open, muddy pasture at dusk, surrounded by animals, increasingly frightened by the storm brewing above her head. The girl is one of two toddlers (played by Reygadas own children) belonging to an affluent young couple, Juan (Adolfo Jimnez Castro) and Natalia (Nathalia Acevedo), who reside in a lush, country villa. Following the familys daily routine with quiet attentiveness, Reygadas soon reveals demons literal demons lurking within this seemingly idyllic domesticity. This already fraught summer comes careening to a halt when a sudden act of violence leaves Juan injured and desperate, setting in motion a final rush of fevered events. Shifting from his own reminiscences to projections of the future, from a childs perspective to some very adult growing pains, Reygadas has created one of the most challenging and indelible films of the year.

CAPITAL LE CAPITAL

Costa-Gavras and Gabriel Byrne will attend the screenings Byrne is plausible and truly frightening, The Hollywood Reporter A cracking good melodrama set in a contemporary world of high finance and low cunning, CostaGavras Capital nimbly plays on our worst memories of the 2008 economic meltdown with a persuasively detailed tale of boardroom politics, international banking, remorseless backstabbing and billion-dollar wheeling-and-dealing. Capital follows the sudden rise of Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh), a hard-driven up-and-comer who becomes CEO of Frances (fictional) Phenix Bank. Board members figure the appointment is just a temporary measure, but the new CEO has every intention of holding on to his job. Tourneuils most helpful ally in his bid to maintain his position turns out to be Dittmar Rigule (Gabriel Byrne), the glad-handing but hot-tempered head of a US hedge fund. Rigule views Tourneuil as a useful pawn in his long-range plan to take complete control of the venerable French bank. Tourneuil, of course, has a different role in mind. Working from a cleverly twisty script, CostaGavras refuses to make things easy for the viewer, avoiding the clich of a flawed protagonist in search of redemption.

AFTER LUCIA DESPUS DE LUCA


Winner, Un Certain Regard, Cannes Film Festival Michel Franco (Daniel & Ana JDIFF 2010), who after only two features has emerged as one of the finest and most imaginative young directors on the scene, has no use for conventional romantic couples in leading roles. He prefers family members caught up in unpleasant situations. In After Lucia, a depressed father and his teen daughter set out for Mexico City to begin new chapters in their lives after the death of his beloved wife, Lucia. Roberto (Hernn Mendoza) wants to eradicate the past; Alejandra (Tessa Ia), wants mainly to help her father and keep him from falling into complete despair. When Alejandra lets the handsome young Jose seduce her in the restroom, the cocky boy films it, then sends it out on the internet. This marks the beginning of the bullying, but it is some time before Roberto becomes aware of what has transpired and sees the footage. Finally, this listless man becomes energized. Not satisfied with a shoddy police investigation after Alejandra disappears at a class beach trip, he decides to take the law into his own hands. Howard Feinstein, Screen International

EARTHBOUND

Director: Michel Franco / 2012 / Mexico Cast: Tessa Ia, Hernn Mendoza, Gonzlo Vega Jr

SPECTRUM

IRISH FOCUS

Earthbound is the story of a young man convinced hes a space alien. Fifteen years after his fathers death, Joe (Rafe Spall) is still waiting for the other shoe to drop. Just before dad (David Morrissey) died, he told Joe they were both aliens, members of a race that inhabited the faraway planet Zalaxon. Until the rebellion there is successful, Joe must hide out, work in a comic book store and somehow perpetuate their race. Spall is terrifically deadpan, his Joe a true believer and budding paranoid, but not immune to love; when he discovers the lovely Maria (Jenn Murray), he confides everything to her, at which point she thinks hes nuts. She brings in her old psychology teacher to counsel Joe, and his entire worldview begins to collapse. Brennans tour de force is the way he dismantles Joes elaborate Zalaxon scenario. Earthbound acquires a pathos that places it outside the realm of comedy or sci-fi, turning it into a psychological drama that probes self-delusion and even psychosis. Murray and Spall play this all with wonderfully straight faces, allowing the comedy to arise from circumstances that might well evolve around any stranger in a strange land, or even one who just thinks he is.

Shell like the beautiful thing you get in the sea, the affection-starved 17-year-old replies. Manning a practically disused service station in the remotest highlands of Scotland, Shell lives with only her broken-down mechanic father Pete (Joseph Mawle) for company. All is clearly not right in Shells world, but shes intrinsically a bright soul who has an effect on everyone she encounters. Pete, meanwhile, is taciturn, damaged, an epileptic who is terrified of physical warmth, perhaps for good reason. This leaves Shell alone to deal with the attentions of local loners (Graham again draws strong performances from Michael Smiley and young Iain de Caestecker) when all she really wants is her dad. Grahams shorts Shell, and in particular Native Son have provided a strong sense of where this young directors preoccupations lie. As a feature debut, Shell fulfils these expectations while holding out the promise of more to come. Right from the opening moments, where he plays with proportions and perspective from the window of a truck, Graham has his say in Shell and he should find viewers who are eager to listen.

A HIJACKING KAPRINGEN

Tobias Lindholm and co-producer Rene Ezra will attend the screening. Tobias Lindholm will run a screenwriting masterclass on Thurs 21 Feb. See p.119 for details. Winner, Golden Alexander for Best Film, Thessaloniki International Film Festival & Crystal Arrow, Les Arcs European Film Festival A tense and intricately shot drama, writer/director Tobias Lindholms solo debut is a powerful and intensely watchable film as it tackles the highpressure negotiations over a hijacked ship. Lindholm wrote for the award-winning Danish TV series Borgen, as well as scripting Thomas Vinterbergs The Hunt, while with Michael Noer he co-directed the tough prison drama R. The film opens with simple sequences of the ships cook Mikkel (Pilou Asbk) going about his work, but never actually shows the hijacking of the Rozen, a cargo ship in the Indian Ocean, instead skipping two days forward to see CEO Peter (Sren Malling) first discover his companys vessel has been hijacked. Over the coming weeks Peter has to haggle with translator Omar (Abdihakin Asgar), while on board the Rozen Mikkel and his fellow shipmates start to lose hope that they will ever escape alive. Pilou Asbk (who starred in R) is moving and memorable as the genial chef whose sanity starts to crack, while equally fine is Sren Malling as the shrewd, calm and professional businessman who is not fully prepared for haggling over mens lives.

Johnny Gogan will attend the screening Teenagers Alice and her brother Tom are obsessed with racing cars. Growing up in the borderlands of Leitrim there is little else for them to do, but when Jimmy Devlin, a local racer and petty criminal, starts taking an interest in Alice, she finds the world of semi-professional rallying is not what she thought it would be. In the aftermath of a tragic accident that claims the life of her brother and his girlfriend, Alice is forced to confront her own guilt. Set at the time of the financial bail-out of 2008, Johnny Gogans first feature since Mapmaker describes a shady black market world where everyone, it seems, is on the take. Jane McGrath gives a mesmerising performance as Alice, a young girl traumatised by the death of her brother, and Love/ Hates Killian Scott has the requisite charisma for Jimmy, the loner who lures her in. The white-knuckle night races are convincingly staged while the pulsing soundtrack captures the adrenaline rush of the chase on these haunting, blacked-out back roads.

and
Screenwriter Krzysztof Kopka will attend the screening Winner, Golden Lion, Gdynia Film Festival 58-year-old director Waldemar Krzystek grew up under Communism, but 80 Million is less a political drama than a lively hybrid of action movie, heist thriller and dark comedy. Shot in a fairly conventional but fast-paced style, it features double agents, treacherous lovers, divided families, car chases and wily Catholic priests working for the anti-government underground. The action takes place in the southern Polish city of Wroclaw over 10 days in December 1981, just before the imposition of martial law, a Moscow-approved crackdown designed to crush the growing power of Lech Walesas independent trade union Solidarity. Solidarity activists Wladyslaw (Filip Bobek), Maks (Marcin Bosak) and Staszek (Wojciech Solarz) learn about the impending state of emergency from a mysterious Deep Throat character, who may just be a double agent. As martial law will allow the government to freeze the unions financial assets, they plan a daring mission to withdraw 80 million Polish zlotys from Solidaritys own bank account. Like Charlie Wilsons War or Argo, 80 Million condenses a series of complex historical events into an enjoyably upbeat thrill ride and a universal celebration of victory over tyranny.

THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN

Danny DeVito receives a Volta at JDIFF 2013 - see p.80 for details Proudly presented by MGM HD (UPC 325 & Sky 313) and MGM Channel (UPC 326) The exchange murders plot gambit, played with utter solemnity in Hitchcocks Strangers on a Train, is used as the launching pad for raucous laughter in Throw Momma From the Train. Director/star Danny DeVito plays Owen Lift, a middle-aged bachelor totally dominated by his gorgon mother, played with hilarious ferocity by Anne Ramsey. Billy Crystal co-stars as Larry Donner, a creative writing professor saddled with a vituperative, thoroughly despicable ex-wife, Margaret (Kate Mulgrew). Signing up for Larrys writing course, Owen has trouble at first with character development and construction in his stories. Larry recommends that Owen watch a screening of Strangers on a Train, which he considers a model of tight, concise storytelling. Owen is so entranced by the film that he decides to emulate Strangers star Robert Walker. That is, Owen wants Larry to bump off his mother, in exchange for Owens murder of Margaret. Without being asked, Owen does away with Margaret (or so it seems), then hounds Larry to the point of killing Momma. This being a comedy, the actual consequences of the swap-murder plot arent nearly as calamitous as in the Hitchcock film. Hal Erickson, Rovi

RHINO SEASON FASLE KARGADAN


SPECTRUM
A tragic love story, a fierce indictment of the Islamist regime in Tehran, but most of all, a lyrical elegy replete with symbolic visions, Rhino Season the new film from Camera dOr-winning director Bahman Ghobadi (A Time for Drunken Horses) gains much of its force from its effective images. Inspired by the fate of a family friend, Kurdish poet Sadegh Karmangar, the film tells the story of Saleh (Behrouz Vossoughi), a poet released from jail after 30 years who goes looking for his wife, Mina (Monica Bellucci), now living with her two children in Istanbul. A celebrity during the Shahs reign, Saleh, a Kurd, was falsely accused of writing anti-Islamic poems and thrown into jail. The film takes place mostly in the present. Saleh is given the address of his wife, who left Iran after having been told that he had died in prison. He looks at her lodgings from a distance, wondering whether and how to approach her. Monica Bellucci, better known as a glamour icon, commendably downplays this aspect of her personality, offering an introvert, minimalist, performance, while the striking faces of the two men opposite her convey everything that has to be said better than any dialogue could.

Lucy Mulloy will attend the screening [a] sexy, pulsing debut feature a bracing snapshot of desperate youths putting their immigrant dreams into action, Variety Winner, Best Actor, Best Cinematographer, and Best New Narrative Director, Tribeca Film Festival Fed up with living in poverty while catering to a privileged tourist class, Cuban teens Raul (Dariel Arrechaga) and Elio (Javier Nez Florian) are tantalised by the idea of fleeing the confines of their broken-down country for a new life in Miami. When Raul is accused of assaulting a foreigner, he has no choice but to escape, but Elio must decide whether his desire for freedom and helping Raul are worth abandoning his beloved twin sister, Lila (Anailn de la Ra de la Torre). Brimming with the nervous energy of Havanas restless youth and the evocative cinematography of the sun-bleached capital, Una Noche follows one sweltering day, full of hope and fraught with tension, that burns to a shocking climax. Director Lucy Mulloy spent years living in Havana to research Una Noche. Untrained actors play the leads, and their aching vulnerability and honest performances leave a lasting impression. A universal coming-of-age story in an unlikely place, Una Noche marks the directing debut of an important, passionate new voice. Genna Terranova, Tribeca Film Festival

HELPLESS HOA-CHA
SPECTRUM
Adapted by Byun Young-joo from a Japanese novel, this tale of a man whose fiance goes missing taps directly into present-day economic anxiety as well as the terror of emotional commitment. Veterinarian Mun-ho (Lee Sun-gyun) is driving his fiance, Seon-yeong (Kim Min-hee), to meet his parents for the first time. Stopping to get some snacks en route, Mun-ho returns to the car to find Seon-yeong missing. On returning to Seoul, Mun-ho finds their apartment stripped of any trace of Seonyeong. As he digs into her past, he finds everything he thought he knew about her was a complete fabrication. Mun-ho looks up his down-and-out uncle Jong-geon (Cho Seong-ha, The Yellow Sea JDIFF 2012), an ex-cop who was thrown off the force for accepting bribes. Desperate to restore his career, Jonggeon begins to investigate on his nephews behalf. The complicated scenario in the early reels is childs play compared with the intricate and knotty intrigues that follow, but even when it confuses, the film never ceases to compel. As the layers of deceit are peeled back, Byun seems in complete command of her material. Russell Edwards, Variety With the support of the Embassy of Korea and the Korea Foundation Please note: there will be a second screening on Sunday 24 February in Cineworld 11 at 1pm

The second feature by Mika Ninagawa (daughter of the celebrated theatre director Yukio Ninagawa) lives up to its name. Its a big, splashy thrill-ride, reminiscent of vintage Ken Russell, which tears into the supermodel/teen-idol industries that make the world of Japanese pop culture go round. Lilico (rather bravely played by Erika Sawajiri, Japans Kate Moss) is The Face, but her outer beauty masks the tantrums of a self-hating queen bitch and the work of a beautician whose clinic is under police investigation for its criminal techniques. The plot (from a manga by Kyoko Okazaki) turns on hysterical jealousy and rivalries, but it comes second to the unflagging energy and visual flash. Absolutely fabulous support from Nao Omori as the prosecutor and the magnificent Kaori Momoi as Lilicos ruthless manager. Tony Rayns, BFI London Film Festival

THE LOOK OF LOVE


EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES
The porn and property tycoon Paul Raymond started his career as a mind reader, but soon recognised the commercial value of sex and built an empire encompassing gentlemans clubs, porn magazines and property. Raymond lived a life of celebrated excess, relishing his notoriety as the self-styled King of Soho, but the one thing he couldnt control was his daughter Deborah, a troubled soul who became the editor of his porn magazine empire, before succumbing to drug addiction. Beautifully shot, and moving between glorious black and white and colour, Winterbottoms latest film careers around the Soho of the 1970s. Aided by a screenplay from Matt Greenhalgh (Control), Winterbottom fashions a dazzling portrait of a mercurial, charismatic businessman whose Icarus-like rise has complications he cant foresee. Steve Coogan is stunning as Raymond, Anna Friel as wife Jean and Imogen Poots as his daughter Deborah are both excellent, and the film offers a wealth of unexpected treats with cameos from familiar faces including David Walliams, Stephen Fry and Dara Briain. Winterbottom is a modern day Howard Hawks; a film-maker always challenging what cinema can do and whose films roam across genres and subjects with equal passion, and The Look of Love is a fascinating addition to his oeuvre.

CALL GIRL
11 Nominations, Swedish Guldbagge Awards Mikael Marcimains debut feature is a fascinating policier inspired by the prostitution scandal that threatened to bring down Swedens Social Democratic government in the 1970s. The story begins a few days before the end of a closely fought and tumultuous election, when it looked like the Social Democrats would be unseated after decades in power. Even worse for the powers that be, dogged detective John Sandberg (Simon J. Berger) is getting closer to linking several government ministers to a prostitution ring run by Dagmar Glans, the Heidi Fleiss of Stockholm (played with gusto by one of Swedens greatest acting talents, Pernilla August). Marcimain and his collaborators recreate their seventies-era setting with both hilarious accuracy (earth tones are everywhere) and incisive sociopolitical insight. Call Girl paints a scathing portrait of a nation drunk on conspicuous consumption, and of a political class so convinced of its right to power that it can no longer even recognize the difference between governance and self-interest. Depicting Stockholms lurid underworld milieu with a chilling lack of sensationalism and creating relentlessly mounting suspense, Marcimain establishes himself as a talent to watch. Steve Gravestock.

POPULAIRE

boosted by terrific lead turns from Romain Duris and Dborah Franois, as well as some stunning oldschool cinematography, The Hollywood Reporter Surely the first period rom-com to centre on the speed-typing competitions that were all the rage in the 1950s, Rgis Roinsards first feature delivers a sparkling Gallic take on what feels like a vintage Hollywood love story. Though the romance between the ambitious trainer-boss Louis, played by Romain Duris, and Dborah Franois gifted typist follows a well-trodden narrative path, the chemistry between the two leads is positively nuclear, and the films effervescent, spot-on evocation of the period is a joy to absorb. Dborah Franois (The Page Turner) is a revelation as Rose Pamphyle, the girl from the sticks who rises to become a French speed-typing champion thanks in part to the tutelage of boss Louis Echard (Duris). Louis is a cocky insurance agent battling with a fear of commitment that has already lost him the hand of his childhood sweetheart Marie (The Artists Brnice Bejo). Packed with period colour this is a film that, like Mad Men, delights us with the detail of an era that still had an uncomplicated appetite for modernity. And the neo-retro soundtrack, with its bursts of Duane Eddystyle guitar or Platters-like vocal harmonies, seals a package that thrives on rhythm and dexterity.

JAMESON CULT FILM CLUB


Danny DeVito will be interviewed by 2FMs Rick OShea after the screening Winner of two Academy Awards (Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenplay) This year, Jameson Irish Whiskey presents the Jameson Cult Film Club. A year-long programme of special screenings will take place throughout the country, cult films will be presented in key non-cinema locations, with key guests invited to talk about the film with the invited audiences. For JDIFF, Jameson presents one of the best (and best-loved) films of the 1990s: Curtis Hansons LA Confidential, a gripping tale of sex, sleaze and corruption in 1950s Los Angeles starring Russell Crowe, Guy Pearce, Kevin Spacey and Danny DeVito. We are delighted to welcome Danny DeVito, who will discuss the film after the screening. Following the discussion, the party will continue in true Jameson style. Curtis Hansons adaptation of James Ellroys most complex novel is a towering achievement, probably the finest mystery thriller since Chinatown. Set in the 1950s, this punchy cocktail of gangland violence, police brutality, racism and sex-scandal cover-ups feels torn from todays headlines. an irresistible treat with enough narrative twists and memorable characters for a half-dozen films satisfies on virtually every level, Variety It operates on the principles of an expos. As Danny DeVitos muck-raking Hush Hush magazine hack guides us on a gleeful trawl through the seedier, sleazier aspects of this, the last of the frontier towns, we meet three very different lawmen: Spaceys cynical showboat Jack Vincennes; Ed Exley (Pearce), a straight-arrow cop headed for the top; and Crowes Bud White, the strong arm of the law, brawn to Exleys brains. Contrasting not only their approaches to procedure, justice and respect, but also their vividly etched, distinctly volatile psychopathologies, Hanson inexorably draws these three cases to one conclusion: when the trio do take a stand, its inspired less by idealism than self-disgust. As the emotional nexus, a Veronica Lake lookalike trapped in a web of male desires, Basinger is arguably the pick of a perfect cast. Subtle, shocking, compelling and immensely assured.

BERNIE

Bernie is an eccentric delight, NPR Nominee, Jack Black, Best Actor (Comedy/ Musical), Golden Globe Awards Richard Linklater (School of Rock, Me and Orson Welles) has made a career of defying expectations. Bernie might be his most unexpected film yet. Based on a true story, Bernie is a dark joke with a straight face and the surprising deadpan in this movie belongs to Jack Black. He plays Bernhardt Tiede, assistant funeral director in the small Texas town of Carthage. As described by the real residents of Carthage, Bernie was someone who everyone thought the world of. He sings in church, visits the sick and has a cheerful word for everyone in town. Yet his social life is something of a mystery until he befriends the towns richest widow, Marjorie Nugent (Shirley MacLaine). Suddenly, Bernie and Mrs Nugent are inseparable. But she doesnt have the reputation as the meanest woman in town for nothing and even the towns nicest guy, Bernie Tiede, has his limits. What gives Bernie its fizz, its kick, its sheer enjoyable weirdness is the oddly engaging give-and-take between Black (a master of contained energy) and MacLaine. Bernie never quite goes where you expect it to. Go in with a fresh eye and youll appreciate this completely fresh little movie. Marshall Fine, Huffington Post

SLEEPLESS NIGHT / VANISHING POINT

Sleepless Night Winner, Grand Prize and Audience Award, Jeonju International Film Festival After his debut, Eighteen, which evoked youthful impulses with electrifying authenticity, Jang Kun-jaes follow-up, Sleepless Night, initially seems as staid and uneventful as the marriage of the thirtysomethings he depicts. Yet Nights unassuming brilliance lies in the lyricism of love itself, which it tenderly infuses into every precisely framed and edited shot. The picture imperceptibly penetrates the cozy neighbourhood of factory employee Hyun-soo (Kim Soo-hyun) and his yoga-instructor wife Joon-hee (Kim Joo-ryeong), building pleasurable momentum from their ups and downs (a birthday party, work hassles, speculation about having babies). Daydreams and nightmares suggest subconscious anxieties, revealing a rippling emotional current beneath the characters daily pleasantries. The actors wear their roles like a second skin. Excerpts from Bachs Goldberg Variations imbue intimate moments with a serene, contemplative air.

Pokosie (Aftermath) deals with the attempt made by two brothers Jozek (Maciej Stuhr) and Franciszek (Ireneusz Czop) to break the conspiracy of silence among the residents of a fictional village where a Jedwabne-style massacre had taken place. We already have a huge number of films on the horrors committed by the Soviets and the Germans, and its time to say what terrible things we did ourselves, said Pasikowski. On another level, the tormented relationship and lack of mutual understanding between Jozek and Franciszek in their search for the truth can be read as metaphor for the PolishPolish war. Enhanced by the warm smoothness of Pawe Edelmans cinematography, Pokosie smacks of the best Hollywood thrillers. Krakow Post With the support of the Embassy of Poland

Volta Presentation

JDIFF 2013 IS DELIGHTED TO WELCOME DANNY DEVITO TO DUBLIN FOR A CELEBRATION OF HIS CAREER TO DATE, INCLUDING A SPECIAL SCREENING OF THE WAR OF THE ROSES, ALONG WITH HIS DIRECTORIAL DEBUT THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN AND THE NINE TIES CL ASSIC, L A CONFIDENTIAL

Named after the first dedicated cinema in Ireland, opened in 1909 by James Joyce, the Volta Awards are presented throughout the Jameson Dublin International Film Festival to specially-selected individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the world of cinema. Previous recipients of the award include: Al Pacino, Kristin Scott Thomas, Daniel Day Lewis, Gabriel Byrne, Brendan Gleeson, Thierry Frmaux, Patricia Clarkson, Paolo Sorrentino, Ciaran Hinds, George Morrison, Martin Scorcese, Franois Ozon and Kevin Brownlow. Danny DeVito is one of the entertainment industrys most versatile players, excelling as actor, producer and director. He wrote, directed and produced several short films in his early Hollywood years before emerging as a feature-length film-maker. DeVito appeared in only one school play, as St Francis of Assisi. After graduation, he pursued several odd jobs, always with the idea of acting in the back of his mind. He finally entered the American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. They had fencing and a speech class, he said mockingly, so you dont talk funny. Unable to get work, Danny headed to Hollywood. After years of unemployment, he returned to New York. He called an old friend and former American Academy professor who, coincidentally, had been seeking him out for a starring role in one of three one-act plays presented together under the title of The Man with the Flower in His Mouth. Soon Danny was into big money ($60 a week), and other stage performances followed. In 1975, Danny and his wife, actress Rhea Perlman, wrote and produced Minestrone, which has been shown twice at the Cannes Film Festival and translated into five languages.

Two films co-starring DeVito won the Academy Award for best picture (One Flew over the Cuckoos Nest and Terms of Endearment), but it was the part of Louie De Palma on the television show Taxi that propelled him to national prominence. He won an Emmy and a Golden Globe for the role. DeVito currently stars as Frank Reynolds in FXs acclaimed cult comedy Its Always Sunny in Philadelphia. He runs TheBloodFactory. com, an online collaboration with screenwriter John Albo of horror shorts he affectionately refers to splatter cuts. He is also the principal of Jersey Films 2nd Avenue. Jersey Films has produced over 20 motion pictures including Garden State, Pulp Fiction, Out of Sight, Get Shorty, Hoffa, Matilda and Erin Brockovich (which was nominated for an Academy Award). Apart from his work with Jersey Films, DeVito has starred in such films as Junior, Batman Returns, Twins, Romancing the Stone, Jewel of the Nile, Ruthless People, Tin Men, Anything Else, Big Fish, Renaissance Man, The Big Kahuna and Heist. Never forgetting that there were more difficult times, he maintains a healthy sense of perspective. As Louie De Palma would say, If you dont do good today, youll be eatin dirt tomorrow.

THE WAR OF THE ROSES


Fri 22 Feb / Savoy 1 / 6.10pm / 118 minutes
Director: Danny DeVito / 1989 / US Cast: Michael Douglas, Kathleen Turner, Danny DeVito

VOLTA PRESENTATION
Danny DeVito will attend the screening Hollywood has traded off the battle of the sexes since the 30s, but few, if any, movies have quite smashed the traditional boundaries of the convention in such an audacious way as The War of the Roses. The verbal sparring of Tracy and Hepburn pales into polite insignificance next to the mesmerising anger and bitterness of Barbara and Oliver Rose. Danny DeVitos second directorial venture has an attorney (DeVito) telling the Roses story to a new client who is considering divorce. The Roses were the perfect couple: while Barbara (Kathleen Turner) cleaned, cooked, sewed and acquired the dream house, Oliver (Michael Douglas) steadily climbed the ladder of professional success. Now Barbara wants a divorce. He doesnt, and their wonderful home, which each stubbornly refuses to relinquish, becomes the battleground where the ensuing war is waged. DeVito triumphs by instilling this caustic satire with truth and consequence, Rolling Stone Working from a noticeably watertight and wellwritten screenplay by Michael Neeson, DeVito delivers the blackest of black farces, charting the gradual disintegration of a relationship. Wildly funny and deeply disturbing, The War of the Roses never hesitates to go for the jugular and succeeds more often than not in its valiant attempts to draw blood. Robyn Karney, Empire

WEST OF MEMPHIS

earns every minute of its screen time, The Hollywood Reporter riveting, The Observer The 1994 conviction of three disaffected teenagers in West Memphis, Arkansas, for killing a trio of eight-year-old boys raised strong public emotions at the trial, and a lengthy campaign afterwards claimed that hysteria over satanic rituals, rather than genuine evidence, put the accused behind bars. Documentary-makers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky devoted their acclaimed Paradise Lost trilogy to exposing what many believed a major miscarriage of justice, inspiring an internet campaign supported by numerous celebrities including director Peter Jackson. But Amy Bergs film makes a compelling case for itself as a patient, methodical summation of the complex issues involved. The extensive interview testimony and archive footage build up a troubling fresco of police incompetence, enterprising advocacy for the prisoners and a blinkered judicial system puzzlingly slow to confront escalating doubts. Bergs unfettered access creates a riveting sense of new evidence being uncovered before our eyes. Theres justifiable outrage here, but its lucid and focused, and if the celeb cameos and emphasis on crowd-funding seem overinsistent at times, its a viable point to make public contributions really did keep the fight for justice alive.

SHORT STORIES RASSKAZY


SPECTRUM

Mikhail Segal will attend the screening Winner, Audience Choice Award, Vladivostok International Film Festival At the beginning of Mikhail Segals film, an author approaches a publishing house with a selection of stories and is told there is no market for them. However, as various people open the book, they each find themselves drawn into an imaginary reality. The first story tells of a wedding organiser who can fix anything, including the future, while the second traces a course from petty bribery to political duplicity. In the third, the librarian of the Pushkin Library assists the police with her psychic powers just like on television, while in the fourth, a middleaged mans encounters with a sexually voracious young woman are interspersed with a discussion on the history of the Soviet Union. She loves Animal Planet but knows very little about Trotsky. Segals elliptical satire is achieved with precision and style a nice counterbalance to the dark masterpieces of his contemporaries.

STRUCK BY LIGHTNING

Fri 22 Feb / Light House 1 / 8pm / 90 minutes


The high school misfit against the world concept has been mined in the movie world many times before, but that doesnt stop Glee star Chris Colfers scripting debut from offering up plenty of smart and quirky moments. The film begins with the death (the struck by lightning of the title) of 17-year-old Carson Phillips (Colfer), who then narrates a look-back at his troubled high school life. He is editor of the school newspaper, but is despised and largely ignored by his schoolmates and only has one best friend, Malerie Baggs (played with a good deal of quirky charm by Australian actress Rebel Wilson, who featured in Bridesmaids). Home life is little better for Carson. He lives with his single mother (Allison Janney), whose life is based around booze and prescription drugs since his father Neal (Dermot Mulroney) left them. Her life is thrown up in the air when dad arrives back in town, along with his pregnant girlfriend April (Christina Hendricks). Janney is wonderful as his sarcastic, boozy, seemingly unemotional mother, and the scenes she has with the equally fine Christina Hendricks as her former husbands new partner are high points in the film. Mark Adams, Screen International With the support of Wells Cargo Director: Kieran Evans / 2012 / UK / Ireland Cast: Antonia Campbell-Hughes, Julian Morris, Stephen Walters

KELLY + VICTOR

Kieran Evans will attend the screening a candid and compelling story infused with a real sense of honesty and affection, Screen International The beautifully intense Kelly + Victor is a dark, passionate and inverted love story that mixes tenderness with the toughness. Kelly (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) meets Victor (Julian Morris) on the dance floor in a Liverpool nightclub, and they find themselves at her flat, making love with a passion and urgency neither has experienced before. The more time Kelly and Victor spend together, the more they realise how much they care about each other. At the same time their time in bed begins to get more and more intense, until it all goes a little too far (for Victor at least) and he decides to break things off. But love is not a simple thing and there remains a chance, despite the complex nature of their relationship, that they should be together. Debut feature writer/director Kieran Evans (who made the documentary Vashti Bunyan: From Here to Before), has astutely adapted Niall Griffiths acclaimed novel. It is a candid and compelling story that, while it heads into dark and vaguely disturbing territory, is infused with a real sense of honesty and affection. The support performances are all terrific, but this is a film that belongs to the open, powerful and tender lead performances by Antonia Campbell-Hughes and Julian Morris.

Director: Cristian Mungiu / 2012 / Romania / France / Belgium Cast: Cosmina Stratan, Cristina Flutur, Valeriu Andriuta Winner, Best Screenplay and Best Actress, Cannes Film Festival A cerebral melodrama of the most steely, bare and brutal kind, Beyond the Hills is the third feature from Romanian director Cristian Mungiu and his first since winning the Palme dOr at Cannes in 2007 for 4 Months, 3 Weeks & 2 Days. Alina (Cristina Flutur) and Voichita (Cosmina Stratan) are old friends who reunite over a weekend. Alina has come back to Romania from Germany and wants Voichita to return with her. But Voichita is reluctant to leave the monastery where she lives with a dozen other women and a lone priest (Valeriu Andriuta), believing shes found a cure for crippling loneliness: God. Mungiu embeds us in the world of her frugal, barren monastery over a few days, with Alinas presence forcing her to confront her beliefs. Meanwhile, her colleagues react with increasing hostility to the threat Alina poses to their way of life. Mungius style of storytelling in Beyond the Hills is more elongated and less frenetic than in 4 Months. Together, the two films make fascinating companion pieces as studies of freedom or a lack of it and, on a wider level, suggest a lingering sickness and sorrow at the heart of Romanian society.

STOKER

EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES

SPECTRUM

After Indias father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie (Matthew Goode), whom she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother, Evelyn (Nicole Kidman). Soon after his arrival, India (Mia Wasikowska) begins to suspect this mysterious, charming man has disturbing ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, the friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him. Visionary film-maker Park Chan-wook (Old Boy) returns with another macabre story, one that marks his first venture into English-language cinema. Armed with an inspired script, a world-class cast, and a wickedly playful nature, he subverts audience expectations by employing delightful visual trickery and placing a magnet over the moral compass of the film, giving complex and sympathetic motivations for the characters violent actions. Featuring a gasp-inducing performance from Nicole Kidman, Stoker is a haunting, Hitchcockian tale as unsettling as it is stunning.

Director: Victor Kossakovsky / 2011 / Germany / Netherlands / Argentina

VIVAN LAS ANTIPODAS!

Constructed around an elegantly simple idea but executed with grace and ingenuity, Variety Victor Kossakovskys captivating documentary takes a common musing if you dug a hole straight through the planet, what would you see on the other side? and pursues it to the ends of the earth. Travelling to four pairs of antipodes, places located exactly opposite each other on the surface of the globe, the film finds contrasts and commonalities, pointed juxtapositions and serendipitous visual rhymes. In Entre Rios, Argentina, two brothers drowsily contemplate lifes mysteries beside a remote river, where they can only imagine the river of humanity that floods the streets of Shanghai. A woman and her daughter in rural Russia find their opposite number in a Patagonian shepherd with a herd of cats. The lava beds of Hawaiis Kilauea Volcano echo the folds of a Botswana elephants skin, and the bulk of a beached whale in New Zealand recalls a rock formation in Spain or vice versa. As the soundtrack spills from one location to the next, the camera performs barrel rolls and backflips that turn the world upside down. Digital images are deftly spliced to bring opposing sides of the earth together, skylines mirrored across a common horizon. In Kossakovskys dizzy global vision, opposites attract.

THE BAY
SPECTRUM

this is horror for grown-ups, The Guardian Effectively doing for backyard swimming pools and tap water what Psycho did for showers and Jaws did for oceans, The Bay is a genuinely terrifying eco-horror tale in which you arent what you eat, but rather what eats you. From the combined creative forces of producer Oren Peli (Paranormal Activity) and Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson (Rain Man, Wag the Dog), The Bay uses an ingenious assemblage of news reports, surveillance video, home movies and other purportedly user-generated video to expose the never-before-told story of what really happened in the idyllic small town of Claridge, Maryland over the July 4 weekend, 2009, when an infestation of parasitic isopods made its way into the groundwater supply. Mixing elements of old-fashioned giant insect movies with the new wave of documentary-style horror fare, The Bay will make you squirm, jump and cower in your seat as it takes humankind down a few pegs on the food chain.

Galway to Cologne for a performance of their acclaimed Irish language version of Clann Lir (The Children of Lir). The film goes behind the scenes at Branar to trace the process of building the show, from hand-carving the wooden figures to composing the score, but will the set arrive in Germany in one piece, and what to do about the missing gloves? Fionnuala is a touching exploration of the art of puppetry and the skill and craftsmanship that goes into a show. Alistair Daniel, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival An Cat In the aftermath of his wifes funeral Mairtn frustrated and unable to grieve her loss pushes his family away and isolates himself at home.

OUT OF THE PAST

the best drama ever made about the movies, Roger Ebert If the finest things in life are written on an empty stomach, as an agent claims here, Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett must have been ravenous when they penned Sunset Blvd. Not so much biting the hand that fed them as devouring both arms, their gothic melodrama remains the bitterest attack ever launched on Hollywood. Wilder finished the 50s by writing the funniest final line ever (in Some Like it Hot). And he started it here with one of the most audacious set-ups: a flashback movie narrated by a corpse. The corpse in question is struggling screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden). Needing to lie low for a while, he chances upon a rundown mansion on Sunset Blvd. The creepy residence is home to faded movie star Norma Desmond (the hypnotic Gloria Swanson), and devoted manservant Max (Erich von Stroheim). Desmond is planning an unlikely movie comeback and, eyeing an easy buck, Joe offers his services to the deluded one-time great. She covets more than just his editing skills, however... Sunset Blvd. is both a savage indictment of the star system (and the monsters it produces), and an all-too-knowing depiction of a writers impotence in Hollywood. Adrian Hennigan, BBC This screening uses the restored print first shown at the Venice Film Festival.

Director: Billy Wilder / 1950 / US Cast: William Holden, Gloria Swanson, Erich von Stroheim

SPECTRUM
a muscular, heartfelt movie, The Guardian Argentine director Pablo Trapero fashions a gripping, fast-paced story centred around two priests who minister to a sprawling slum outside Buenos Aires, and who fall victim to the violence they are trying to combat with love. The opening scene of a nocturnal massacre of villagers in Amazonia by paramilitary troops is an electrifying piece of film-making. One of the few survivors is the Belgian priest Father Nicolas (Jrmie Renier), whom Father Julian (Ricardo Darn) tracks down in a village hospital, wounded and emotionally devastated. He takes him back to his mission in the heart of a vast shanty town, one of the most dangerous in the country, where a war is in progress between two drug lords. Overshadowed by the hulking skeleton of an unfinished hospital, the padres work side by side with spunky social worker Luciana (Trapero regular Martina Gusmn), who catches the eye of young Father Nicolas. A handful of sharply drawn characters punctuate the story. Local gang wars and shoot-outs are followed by police incursions and street battles, keeping the temperature high and pacing tight. Michael Nymans sweepingly majestic score lends an epic dimension, which feels right alongside the straightforward passion depicted by an evenly balanced, top-drawer cast.

Director: Stanley Kubrick / 1956 / US Cast: Sterling Hayden, Vince Edwards, Coleen Gray

THE KILLING

Brilliantly crafted heist movie that anticipated Reservoir Dogs by nearly 40 years, The Guardian Characteristically Kubrick in both its mechanistic coldness and its vision of human endeavour undone by greed and deceit, this noir-ish heist movie is nevertheless far more satisfying than most of his later work, due both to a lack of bombastic pretensions and to the style fitting the subject matter. Sterling Hayden is his usual admirable self as the ex-con who gathers together a gallery of small-timers to rob a race track; for once its not the robbery itself that goes wrong, but the aftermath. What is remarkable about the movie, besides the excellent performances of an archetypal noir cast and Lucien Ballards steely photography, is the time structure, employing a complex series of flashbacks both to introduce and explain characters and to create a synchronous view of simultaneous events. Kubricks essentially heartless, beady-eyed observation of human foibles lacks the dimension of the genres classics, but the likes of Marie Windsor, Timothy Carey and Elisha Cook more than compensate.

Sat 23 Feb / Light House 3 / 2pm / 107 minutes


Director: Odilon Rocha / 2011 / Brazil Cast: Vanessa Gicomo, Claudia Ohana, Guilherme Duarte Winner, Best Screenplay, Rio International Film Festival With a lively pace and stylish nods to 1970s Brazilian telenovelas, writer/director Odilon Rochas feature debut offers a surprisingly charming look at a dark period in that nations history. In 1978, Brazils military dictatorship still has a stranglehold on the government, but the nations citizens are enthralled by the hot new telenovela Dancing Days. Amanda (Vanessa Gicomo), a highclass call girl, struggles to schedule her appointments around the soap opera, occasionally enlisting the help of her maid, Dora (Claudia Ohana), to ensure she catches each episode. But when a politically connected client unexpectedly dies in their apartment, the two are forced to go on the lam and hide out in Rio de Janeiro. Amandas thrilled by the chance to go to the real Dancing Days discotheque, but returning to Rio will force Dora to come to terms with the secret life that she had left behind. With a spirited cast led by Claudia Ohanas moving portrayal of Dora, Rocha manages to balance kitsch comedy, police corruption, and a sweet coming-of-age story to create a charming tale about how our lives must go on, even during the most troubling times.

Jameson Dublin Saturday 23rdFestival 2013 International Film February

Kieran Hickey (193693) was one of Irelands most sophisticated and versatile film-makers, as accomplished in his production of elegant literary documentaries as he was in his direction of a series of exceptional short fiction films, literary adaptations and dramas which, for the first time in Irish cinema, explored sexuality, infidelity, and middle-class angst and challenged notions of nationalism, sectarianism and the glorification of the past. These fine works were produced with his collaborators Pat Duffner and Sean Corcoran at BAC films, alongside an extensive catalogue of commissioned films travelogues, health & safety and corporate films which today provide colourful snapshots of Irish society in the 1970s and 80s.

I had the good fortune to co-write with Kieran Hickey. Kieran was intent on bringing to the screen a true picture of Irish society. There is nothing cozy about his films. There is, instead, an honesty and an exactitude, a desire to sweep aside a divisive self-consciousness in favour of a mature exploration of ourselves. His ambition for the work was never thwarted by budget restrictions. Kieran was a private man with strong friendships, ever prepared to get in the fight. His deep love of literature and extensive knowledge of cinema was brought to bear in the face of any challenge. All who knew him will recall the steady flow of newspaper cuttings gathered on his desk. These he would present with incredulity, sharp wit and a healthy anger. A glance at our national newspapers today tells us there is a great need of his kind. Philip Davison

The Rockingham Shoot Scripted as an original work for screen by John McGahern, this drama is set a small village in the 1950s where schoolteacher Reilly (Bosco Hogan) is a fierce nationalist with a deep loathing for British society, a loathing that erupts into violence when he learns that some of his pupils have absented themselves from school to work at a pheasant shoot at the local big house where the British Ambassador is a guest.

CINEWORLD SPECIAL PRESENTATION


Frank Langella will attend the screening Winner, Alfred P. Sloan Feature Film Prize, Sundance Film Festival Like the best movies, the ones that work their way into your head and heart, Robot & Frank has a deceptive simplicity. It also helps to have Frank Langella, a stellar actor at his magnificent best, in the starring role. Langellas Frank is a retired burglar, a second-story man ready to hang it up at 70. His children, Hunter (James Marsden) and Madison (Liv Tyler), dont know what to do with him. His parental neglect extended to two prison stints. Enter Robot (voiced with droll wit by Peter Sarsgaard), a talking machine that will keep the old-timer in line. Or so Franks kids think. After a few days of Robots lectures on diet and exercise, Frank gets his own idea to enlist Robot in a new robbery scheme. Theres bracing humour here, and a dash of heartbreak dont expect to be wrapped up in a warm and fuzzy cinematic blanket. Robot & Frank, crisply directed by newcomer Jake Schreier, is made of tougher stuff. Just like Franks flirtation with a librarian (Susan Sarandon), the movie keeps springing surprises. Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

In this, his first drama co-written with Philip Davison, Hickey exposed the fear and loathing underlying relations between men and women in Irish society. Here, an encounter between three male surveyors (Niall O Brien, Bosco Hogan and T P McKenna) and an intriguing, independent French photographer (Catherine Schell) at a remote hotel in the idyllic west of Ireland turns sour and matters quickly turn uncivilised. Criminal Conversation Criminal Conversation, co-authored by Hickey and Davison, presents two comfortable, middle-class Dublin couples as they get together for a Christmas Eve party which degenerates into a kind of Irish Whos Afraid of Virginia Wolf? Alcohol causes smug exteriors to slip and reveals unpleasant truths and the terrible emotional emptiness of their lives.

Director: Susanne Bier / 2012 / Denmark Cast: Pierce Brosnan, Paprika Steen, Trine Dyrholm

LOVE IS ALL YOU NEED DEN SKALDEDE FRISR

a natural-born winner, a romantic comedy that pulls out all the stops, Screen International Pierce Brosnan stars in the innocuously-titled but gloriously enjoyable Love is All You Need, the latest film from the Danish director Susanne Bier, whose In A Better World won the foreign language Oscar in 2011. Brosnan plays Philip, a widower and big noise on the Copenhagen fruit and vegetable wholesale scene who is hosting his sons wedding at his villa in Sorrento. Also in attendance is the mother of the bride, Ida (Trine Dyrholm A Royal Affair), a cancer survivor who has just completed a course of chemotherapy but is still awaiting the final all-clear. Idas tubby husband has absconded with the girl from accounts, so she, like Philip, is without a date. As they make the final preparations for their offsprings nuptials, the flames of love start to catch. Anders Thomas Jensens script, which is just about equal parts English and Danish, is packed with humour that springs from recognisable human foibles, and Brosnan and Dyrholm have fizzingly good chemistry together. Love is All You Need has been made for an audience rarely catered for by the film industry: intelligent adults who enjoy perceptive and good-hearted drama. Robbie Collin, The Daily Telegraph With the support of the Embassy of Denmark

EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES

We are very pleased to welcome New York-based filmmaker Jem Cohen as a guest of the festival. In a career spanning three decades Cohen has made dozens of films in various formats, building a strikingly original body of work that reflects the spirit of independent film-making in its original sense. These sometimes dreamily impressionistic, sometimes arrestingly gritty films defy conventional categorization, and shift easily between narrative and documentary modes. He may be best known for his collaborations on music videos, concert films and feature-length documentaries with a range of musicians including Fugazi, Patti Smith, the Ex, Jonathan Richman and REM. Equally powerful are his experimental films of urban landscapes, shot in various locations around the world, but predominantly New York. Many of these films have the feel of scrapbooks or diaries, drawn from a personal archive of the hidden images and sounds of modern city life.

In a retrospective of his work, we are delighted to present some examples of the New York films, Lost Book Found, Little Flags, Long for the City (featuring Patti Smith) and a selection of newsreels dealing with the Occupy Wall Street movement. Our second programme features another set of locations; Amber City, a portrait of an unnamed Italian city which plays around with the documentary form, flitting between various visual and narrational styles; Opus Luminis et Hominis, a low key film of the Spanish city of Pamplona; and Le Bled, a collaboration with the writer Luc Sante, shot in a strange peripheral zone of uncompleted building projects on the outskirts of Tangier in Morocco. His latest film, Museum Hours, a feature-length narrative tale largely shot in Viennas magnificent Kunsthistorisches Art Museum, marks another career highpoint, and will also be screened as part of the festival.

MILO

Berend and Roel Boorsma will attend the screening Winner, Premio CGS Award for originality and creativity in storytelling, Giffoni Film Festival Ten-year-old Milo has everything going for him. A quiet, intelligent boy with a passion for photography, he lives in conspicuous comfort in the Dublin suburbs with his Irish father and Romanian mother. But Milo has a rare and mysterious skin condition that requires constant care and his overbearing father, determined to keep his condition a secret, keeps him cloistered to the point of imprisonment. Desperate to escape the confines of his life, Milo runs away, falling in with a pair of small-time crooks squatting in a disused quarry. But as his parents begin their frantic search, and the thieves try to work out what to do with him, Milo slowly learns the real truth about his condition. Writer/directors Roel and Berend Boorsmas first feature is a thoughtful, sensitive study of a young boys search for identity that eschews cheap climaxes in favour of digging deep into a compelling set of characters. Newcomer Lorcan Bonner excels as Milo, a young boy on the cusp of self-awareness, while Stuart Graham (Shadow Dancer, Hunger) gives a powerful performance as his father, a softlyspoken bully caught between love and revulsion.

MUSEUM HOURS IS A EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES PRESENTATION


A delicate, quiet, sometimes gravely moving symphony of Vienna, The New York Times

IRISH FOCUS

MUSEUM HOURS

Given unprecedented access to one of the worlds great museums, Viennas Kunsthistorisches Art Museum, Jem Cohen has crafted a delicately overwhelming narrative about observation, loneliness, the city, the transience of all things and how art shapes and reflects daily experience. And a whole lot more. In an unremittingly gray Vienna cityscape, two people unite museum guard Johann (Bobby Sommer) and Anne (Canadian music legend Mary Margaret OHara), a first-time visitor from Montreal. They get to know each other through personal contact and conversation, both inside the museum itself and in ersatz representations around the city.

The key scene in Museum Hours takes place in the majestic Brueghel room, where a guest lecturer argues that Brueghel gave landscape its due for the first time. This interpretive speech clarifies all the fragments of Vienna cityscape that came before, and changes the way one sees things after. When you come to understand that everything is of equal value in this huge film, and youre left to make your own connections between them, its truly liberating. And the paintings are breathtaking.

CAESAR MUST DIE CESARE DEVE MORIRE

humane, intelligent and affecting, Time Out London Winner, Golden Bear, Berlin Film Festival Winner of the Golden Bear at the Berlinale, Paolo and Vittorio Tavianis Caesar Must Die deftly melds narrative and documentary in a transcendently powerful drama-within-a-drama. The film was made in Romes Rebibbia Prison, where the prisoners are preparing to stage Shakespeares Julius Caesar. After a competitive casting process, the roles are eventually allocated, and the prisoners begin exploring the text, finding in its tale of fraternity, power and betrayal parallels to their own lives and stories. Hardened criminals, many with links to organised crime, these actors find great motivation in performing the play. As we witness the rehearsals, beautifully photographed in various nooks and crannies within the prison, we see the inmates also work through their own conflicts, both internal and between each other. The Tavianis (Padre Padrone) break the boundary between reality and fiction in startling ways amongst the inmates, they insert an actor who was once a prisoner himself; some of the conversations are ad-libbed, others carefully scripted and the result is thoughtful, engaging and a triumphant celebration of arts ability to impact lives.

BEWARE OF MR BAKER

[a] fascinating portrait of the aging rock god as an angry old coot, Variety Winner, Grand Jury Prize for Documentary, SXSW Legendary drummer Ginger Baker was as well known for his monstrous rock n roll behaviour as he was for his skin-pounding in the supergroups Cream and Blind Faith. But the worlds greatest drummer didnt really hit his stride as a musician until 1972, when he discovered Fela Kutis Afrobeat. Setting up shop in Lagos, Baker built a recording studio, sat in on records recorded by Kuti and became one of the first proponents of World Music. After leaving Nigeria, Baker returned to his pattern of drug-induced selfdestruction before settling in South Africa a little over a decade ago. The 73-year-old now lives in seclusion with his young bride and 39 polo ponies Jay Bulger spent three months living with the rock legend, recording numerous hours of interview footage. The result is a rollicking and frequently hilarious encounter with one crazy drummer, enhanced by interviews with Stewart Copeland, Charlie Watts, Johnny Rotten, Neil Peart, Mickey Hart, Lars Ulrich and others. Beware of Mr Baker indeed in the first scene of the film, Baker cracks a cane across the bridge of Bulgers nose, showing that Bakers ferocity has not dimmed one bit.

THE MOTH DIARIES

Mary Harron and Sarah Bolger will attend the screening a Gothic stew of satisfying kinkiness, Jeanette Catsoulis, The New York Times With a unique visual style, a fantastic grasp of dialogue and a remarkable record of getting great performances, Mary Harron has been a fascinating director since debuting in 1996 with I Shot Andy Warhol. Having already directed features focussing on the minutiae of male identity, infamy and sexual liberation, her new feature is a dissection of female adolescence. Adapted from Rebecca Kleins 2002 novel, The Moth Diaries is a striking, daring exploration of burgeoning female sexuality. Set in an exclusive all-girls boarding school, The Moth Diaries follows Rebecca (Sarah Bolger, In America) as she struggles to cope with her best friend Lucy (Sarah Gadon, Cosmopolis)s almost slavish devotion to the ethereal, aloof Ernessa (a terrifying Lily Cole). As Lucy gets more and more frail, Rebecca has to try to save her friend while figuring out exactly what Ernessa is. An allegorical horror story in the Carrie vein, there are signifiers for the everyday amongst all the supernatural trauma; angst, anorexia and sex all mix in with the obsessions and bloodied corpses. With Harrons incredible eye for lush visuals, a location to rival The Overlook Hotel and two incredible lead performances, The Moth Diaries is a beguiling treat.

KUMA
Kuma means second wife in Turkish, and Umut Dags debut feature is indeed a claustrophobic domestic drama about a second wife. Kuma starts out wide, with a wedding in a Turkish village; amidst the clamour and the colour, several facts reveal themselves. Fatma (Nihal Koldas) is very ill; her son Hasan (Murathan Muslu) has just married a local girl called Ayse (Begm Akkaya), and they are all travelling back to Vienna where they will live together. On their return, however, it becomes clear that all this is an elaborate ruse, and the young Ayse has been brought to Austria to become second wife to the ageing family patriarch, Mustafa (Vedat Erincin), with the full blessing if not connivance of his ailing first wife Fatma. In this sealed-off Turkish community, appearances are everything and everybody guards their secrets, but the timid and well-meaning Ayse may yet effect a change. Director Umut Dag displays a marked sensitivity for the plight of his characters, assisted by intriguing camerawork from Carsten Thiele and a screenplay of unexpected depth by Petra Ladinigg.

OUR CHILDREN PERDRE LA RAISON

SPECIAL PRESENTATION
Joss Whedon will attend the screening A warm, funny and breezy contemporary version, Screen International Joss Whedons impact on youth culture is already hard to overestimate. Now hes made the first great contemporary Shakespeare since Baz Luhrmanns Romeo + Juliet. The concept is not so incongruous: Whedon is one of the few blockbuster film-makers who also has a semirep acting company. Small-name regulars from Buffy, Angel and Firefly reel off blank verse in the directors own LA mansion. He shoots the play like an episode of Desperate Housewives an especially farcical one. Whedons key coup is in simply directing a very good version of the play. Hes got a keen ear for comedy, a no-nonsense approach to ditching the gags that dont work, a deft hand for slapstick and an eagerness to use it. The vainglory and the self-delusion of his leads is beautifully done by both Alexis Denisof (Benedick) and Amy Acker (Beatrice); Whedon adds a one-night stand flashback that lends strange credence to their bruised egos and prickly banter. Much Ado may be a bit of a B+ staple on the Shakespeare circuit, but Whedon makes it feel second to none. Catherine Shoard, The Guardian

EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES

An arresting portrait of one womans gradual slide, Our Children ( Perdre la Raison) represents another tightly wound study of domestic malaise from Belgian auteur Joachim Lafosse (Private Property). Featuring a riveting lead turn from Emilie Dequenne as a young mother caught between two men (A Prophet stars Tahar Rahim and Niels Arestrup) in a claustrophobic nightmare, its a gloomy and penetrating psychological drama. The story of Belgian schoolteacher, Murielle (Dequenne), and Moroccan immigrant, Mounir (Rahim), starts off on a rather upbeat note with them falling madly in love and deciding to live together in the home of Mounirs surrogate father, Doctor Pinget (Arestrup). But as Murielle quickly learns, the physician casts a paralyzing shadow over his young ward. When Murielle gives birth to a third child, the burden it places on the two parents is exacerbated by the doctors increasingly guru-like sway over Mounir. And as Murielle gets further sucked into the oppressive homestead, her escape routes slowly dry up. Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter

Director: Claude Miller / 2012 / France Cast: Audrey Tatou, Gilles Lellouche, Anas Demoustier

THRSE DESQUEYROUX

FRENCH FILM
Claude Millers elegant last film, completed shortly before he passed away, is a thoughtprovoking drama based on a real-life incident. Thrse Desqueyroux takes place at the end of the 1920s not far from Bordeaux. Two of the richest families in the area are united when Thrse Larroque (Audrey Tautou) marries Bernard Desqueyroux (Gilles Lellouche), the brother of her best friend, Anne (Anas Demoustier, Living on Love Alone - JDIFF 2011). Thrse, bright and intelligent but a restless introvert, looks forward to the marriage as a way of achieving the peace of mind she badly needs. But soon enough she becomes pregnant to a husband she likes less and less with every passing day, and once Bernard starts taking arsenic drops for an imaginary ailment, she cant resist the temptation to increase the doses of his medication beyond the doctors prescriptions. A latter-day Madame Bovary, rebelling against the rules of her class and its strict Catholic morality, Thrse keeps the mystery behind her motivations intact. If there is a villain in this piece, it is the bourgeois family institution, with its set of values putting property and pretence above everything else, allowing no one to escape its iron clasp.

A LATE QUARTET

FRENCH FILM PAGE

SPECTRUM

A tight-knit string ensemble begins to go slowly out of tune in A Late Quartet. Centred around four outstanding performances, Yaron Zilbermans fiction feature debut feels like the work of a film-maker who knows and appreciates the art form under scrutiny, laying a credible foundation for a story that lays bare the often melodramatic passions of the artistic soul. After 25 years of faithful collaboration and celebrated musicianship, the Fugue, a New York-based chamber quartet, finds itself in danger of dissolving. On the eve of the ensembles 26th season, cellist Peter (Christopher Walken) quietly informs his three younger colleagues that hes in the early stages of Parkinsons disease. The impending shake-up spurs second violinist Robert (Philip Seymour Hoffman) to suggest that he be allowed to play first chair on occasion, to the irritation of Daniel (Mark Ivanir), the quartets tightly wound first violinist. Caught in the middle is violist Juliette (Catherine Keener), who also happens to be Roberts wife. Given how tightly the personal and the professional are interwoven here, its no surprise that lines get crossed as a quarter-centurys worth of perceived slights and unspoken resentments rise to the surface.

HOME FOR THE WEEKEND WAS BLEIBT

An elegant, economical and superbly acted mapping of psychological undercurrents and (not always explicit) family relations, Screen International An absorbingly detailed snapshot of a troubled family, Home for the Weekend is distinguished by the smart psychological observation of Bernd Langes screenplay and the precision and restraint of Hans-Christian Schmids direction. At the centre of the portrait is an intelligently contained performance from Lars Eidinger as Marko, an author in his mid-thirties. The main action takes place over a weekend when Markos parents are announcing big changes. His father Gnther (Ernst Sttzner) has sold his publishing house. The real news, however, is that Markos mother, Gitte (Corinna Harfouch Perfume, Downfall), has stopped taking her medication after 30 years of treatment for manic depression. That may look like the groundwork for a predictable scenario, but Langes sober, reflective script avoids going down obvious roads. Lange and Schmid are careful to sidestep the clichs of depression drama, eschewing the expected meltdown in favour of devastating steps taken off-camera. Economic use of music by indie band The Notwist adds to the rewardingly subdued nature of the film, and limber, mostly handheld, camerawork encapsulates the keen balance of this satisfying drama between immersive scrutiny and thoughtful detachment.

BUSTER KEATON DOUBLE BILL COPS & ONE WEEK

Sun 24 Feb / Light House 1 / 1.30pm / 47 minutes

With musical accompaniment by Morgan Cooke Buster Keaton, argues Roger Ebert, was the greatest of the silent clowns, not only because of what he did, but because of how he did it. Harold Lloyd made us laugh as much, Charlie Chaplin moved us more deeply, but no one had more courage than Buster. In films that combined comedy with extraordinary physical risks, Buster Keaton played a brave spirit who took the universe on its own terms, and gave no quarter. JDIFF presents two classic short films from Keatons heyday in the 1920s. In One Week a man trying to build a house struggles for his life as a tornado tears through his property, while in Cops, a man spurned by his lover finds himself pursued by half the police force of the United States. The stunts many of them real and performed by Keaton himself are breathtaking, and the comedy, thanks to Keatons deadpan delivery, is still wonderfully fresh. Alistair Daniel, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival Morgan Cooke is composer in residence and performer with Branar Drmaochta, who do puppet theatre for children. Morgan has been performing live, improvised soundtracks to silent movies since 2009, starting with Metropolis. Morgan is also a voiceover artist, and worked on TG4s version of Jim Hensons Fraggle Rock.

THE SUMMIT

Nick Ryan will attend the screening Nominated, Grand Jury Prize for Documentary, Sundance Film Festival On 1 August 2008, climbers from seven international expeditions set out to conquer the summit of K2, considered by many to be the greatest challenge in the climbing world. Though the weather conditions were perfect, what followed was the worst disaster in the history of attempts on K2. Of the twentyfour climbers who set out, only thirteen survived. Among the climbers was Ger McDonnell from Kilcornan, Co. Limerick, a larger than life figure who became the first Irishman to reach the summit. But the descent from K2 is even more treacherous than the climb, and as darkness fell and ice-falls cut the ropes on which the climbers depended, the mountains deadly nature revealed itself. In the days that followed, conflicting accounts of the tragedy began to emerge, and central to the mystery was the question of what happened to Ger. Through interviews with the survivors, footage taken during the climb, and breathtaking reconstructions, Nick Ryans film tells the story of the disaster: a story of obsession, heroism, carelessness and sheer bad luck. The Summit is the most gripping climbing documentary since Touching the Void and a moving tribute to the climbers who lost their lives. Alistair Daniel, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

EUROPEAN PERSPECTIVES
builds to a whopping finale, The New York Times Safe House director Daniel Espinosa first grabbed attention with this violent, vice-like thriller based on the bestselling novel by criminal defence attorney Jens Lapidus. Praised for its dynamic storytelling and tangy evocation of a multicultural Sweden, it finds its focus in handsome economics student JW (Joel Kinnaman), a man who has dipped his toes in the drug trade and discovered that he is now swimming with sharks. Escaped con Jorge (Matias Varela) is lining up a massive cocaine deal that will smash the Serbian mafias control of the local drug trade. Mafia enforcer Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic) is not about to let that happen and somewhere in the middle there is slick, resourceful JW who works for Jorges partners in crime. Allan Hunter Set three years after Easy Money, the sequel is no less thrilling as Joel Kinnamans dashing mixture of social climber and wily criminal JW has served a portion of his sentence and is about to qualify for day release from prison. He could keep his head down and seek atonement but thats really not his style. Instead, he sets about freeing former enemy Mrado (Dragomir Mrsic) and joining forces to take revenge on the man who put them behind bars. Director Babak Najafi offers a tighter, tenser sequel with another impressive performance from rising star Joel Kinnaman who is soon to be seen taking the central role in the Hollywood reboot of Robocop.

Director: Elio Petri / 1970 / Italy Cast: Gian Maria Volont, Florinda Bolkan

Gian Maria Volont gives an impressively detailed, illuminating performance, Chicago Reader Winner, Best Foreign Language Film, 1970 Academy Awards The plain title of Elio Petris film tells the bulk of the story. A policeman kills his mistress; the trail of clues leads back in his direction, yet such is his status, not to mention the force of his character, that his colleagues remain wary, or even incapable, of finding him guilty. Was he daring them to accuse him? Was he merely flaunting his power, or did he dream of finally being unmasked? The movie, dating from 1970, is fuelled by sardonic rage at a system of authority that seems answerable to no one; its political argument feels lumpen and dated, whereas its portrait of a loner and his lusts comes up frighteningly fresh, and the whole conceit would collapse without the muscular, rousing presence of Gian Maria Volont (A Fistful of Dollars) in the central role. He, as much as Petri, hauls the movie into the realms of Kafka. With the beauteous Florinda Bolkan, plus a comic-sinister score, full of twanging springs, by Ennio Morricone.

In keeping with JDIFF tradition, the Surprise Film has not been confirmed as we go to print. One of the most eagerly anticipated presentations in the festival, it is usually first to sell out and the source of constant speculation in the leadup to the festival and for the duration of the event itself. Theres a special pleasure in booking a ticket for a film about which nothing is known, and the Surprise Film has always been one of my favourite slots in the festival. For the uninitiated, the ritual starts with the growing sense of excitement as the Savoy auditorium fills, the last minute suggestions are placed in the festival competition boxes, followed by the gasps which accompany the trailers that kick off the proceedings. Then the lights dim and the opening credits are revealed

My lips are sealed as to what film I am hoping to confirm for this cherished slot, but I can tell you this: dont listen to anyone who tells you that they know what the Surprise Movie is. It is the festivals most closely guarded secret and no one will know until the lights dim Enjoy. Grinne Humphreys, Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

CLOSING GALA - BLOOD RISING BLOOD RISING


Sun 24 Feb / Savoy 1 / 7.30pm / 83 minutes
Director: Mark McLoughlin / 2012 / Ireland Brian Maguire and Mark McLoughlin will attend the screening

CLOSING GALA
Reel Art is an Arts Council scheme designed to provide film artists with a unique opportunity to make highly creative, imaginative and experimental documentaries on an artistic theme. By turn, incredibly moving and passionately angry, Mark McLoughlins film Blood Rising brings us right into the heart of a truly terrifying world. Jurez is nicknamed the capital of murdered women. The Mexican border city of 1.5 million inhabitants draws tens of thousands of young women from small, poor towns with $55-a-week jobs in the factories owned by corporations such as General Electric and DuPont. The murder rates are truly shocking: 3,000 in 2010 alone, blamed on drug cartels and serial killers. Only 2% of these murder cases have been investigated and many of the mothers have themselves received death threats simply for demanding justice. Irish artist Brian Maguire has spent three years working with these women to bring their stories to the international community. Well known for his social and political commitment, Maguire creates portraits of the missing women which he then shares with their families; he also produces a larger work to be included in an international touring exhibition. Director McLoughlin and his team have made an incredibly powerful film, brutal and unflinching in its depiction of this lawless society, yet emotional in the silent moments between the mothers and the wonderfully empathetic Maguire.

AF TER A TREMENDOUSLY SUCCESSFUL FIRST YEAR, STORY CAMPUS RE TURNS TO JDIFF THIS YEAR WITH A FRESH PROGRAMME OF TRAINING AND DISCUSSIONS EXPLORING THE NATURE (AND FUTURE ) OF STORY TELLING FOR THE SCREEN.

Led by film-maker David Pope, and director and screenwriter David Keating, this years Story Campus is a two-day event for emerging and established screenwriters as well as producers and directors looking for industry awareness or to develop their next film project. Through a series of workshops, interviews and panel sessions with industry insiders, Story Campus will help you develop key storywriting techniques, and provide invaluable advice on writing everything from project pitches to story outlines and screenplays. This years event will include a keynote conversation with Oscar-winning screenwriter Robert Towne (Chinatown, The Last Detail, Mission Impossible), and online discussions with screenwriter David Magee (Life of Pi, Finding Neverland) and writer/director Agnieska Holland (In Darkness, Europa Europa, The Wire). David Pope is a film-maker, consultant and training provider at international level. Credits include the award-winning feature film Miles From Nowhere and training clients have included Rotterdam Lab CineMart, Cannes Cinefondation, the BBC and the BFI. David Keating is a film and theatre director and screenwriter. His first feature, The Last of the High Kings, earned him a nomination for Best Newcomer at the Evening Standard Awards. His latest film, Wake Wood, is a critically acclaimed award-winning horror film. David is also involved in running screenwriting labs, and acting and directing workshops.

DAY ONE
An open conference day of engaging and provocative events giving film-makers an opportunity to share, talk, listen and network. Includes panel discussions on what I learned making my last film and Irelands place in the film world: how do we get our work out there?, an interactive session on presenting your project, Q&As with special guests and a keynote interview with legendary screenwriter Robert Towne.

DAY TWO
Day two is a training day for a select group of 20 applicants with narrative feature film projects, including peer-to-peer sessions on introducing your project, acting on feedback and advice, and identifying key challenges.

LIVE ACTION / ANIMATION CROSSOVERS


Sat 16 Feb / Light House 2 / 11am-1pm Admission Free. To book your place go to jdiff.com

LIVE ACTION/ANIMATION CROSSOVER FEATURES ARE NOT A NEW THING. EVEN A CURSORY LOOK AT THE BEST KNOWN HYBRIDS LIKE THE 2D ANIMATION/LIVE ACTION CROSSOVERS MARY POPPINS, BEDKNOBS AND BROOMSTICKS, WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT AND STOP MOTION/LIVE ACTION CROSSOVERS LIKE KING KONG AND R AY HARRYHAUSENS FILMS SUGGEST THAT ANIMATION AND LIVE ACTION HAVE SHARED THE SCREEN SUCCESSFULLY FOR A LONG TIME.

More recently, with the advent of CGI and the widespread use of digital special effects, live action/animation crossovers (LOTR, Avatar, Alice in Wonderland, Life of Pi) have become more prevalent and more profitable. At the same time, the lines between live action and animation have become more blurred. Live action directors like Steven Spielberg, Gore Verbinski and Guillermo del Toro have moved successfully into animation and animators like Brad Bird, Tim Burton and Andrew Stanton have moved the other way. And more and more, the craft and knowledge from live action is being fed into animation features. WALLE and How to Train Your Dragon benefited enormously from the input of live action cinematographer Roger Deakins. And with Rango, Gore Verbinski aspired to make an animated feature using live action knowledge and ended up with a unique photorealistic look (as if shot on location), which helped win the film an Oscar for Best Animated Feature Film. With this blurring of the lines between live action and animation, what does the future hold? In terms of awards are these films animation, are they live action or do they fall between the cracks? What opportunities do future animation projects hold for traditional live action roles like cinematography and production design? And can animation skills and live action skills be translated, transferred and combined to make better movies?

Thanks

Welcome to the 11th edition of JDIFF. Our eleventh birthday gives us a great opportunity to look back at the last 10 years, and plan some new beginnings. As my first JDIFF it seems to me that the festival is and has always been about people. Somebody has an idea (often cited as occurring at the kitchen table for some reason), and then makes a film. Sounds easy we know its not. Then they submit it everywhere. Somebody says YES. At some stage in an office in Dublin, people are labelling thousands of films, and one hungry programmer watches them all, takes note, and plots and plans. Then four of us, who quickly become 25, are joined by 150 volunteers. Again, sounds easy, its not. Then, the magic. Our partners, who bring all sorts of resources, provide cinemas, hotels, cars, cables, screens, signs, food and beverages, and then the real magic: you arrive. You arrive in thousands, and for 11 days you roar, you laugh, you cry, and you validate the ideas that happened at a kitchen table, some time back, somewhere around the world. For that we thank you. Thank you all. A sincere thanks to our title sponsor Jameson. Jackie Ryan General Manager Jameson Dublin International Film Festival

A VITAL ELEMENT TO ENSURING THE SMOOTH RUNNING AND CONTINUED SUCCESS OF JAMESON DUBLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL IS OUR VOLUNTEER PROGRAMME.

Each year, film enthusiasts of all ages, occupations, backgrounds and nationalities generously commit to staffing various departments and venues for the festival period. Their dedication (and ever-increasing levels of enthusiasm) are key to maintaining JDIFFs status as Irelands premier film event. Many of our volunteers return each year to participate in the festival. Here are some of their favourite memories: My favourite memory was the audience reaction to The Raid, screened in Savoy 1... such a great experience. Linda Crowe (first volunteered 2012) Running up and down the Savoy with a microphone for audience questions can be tiring. While you tend not to concentrate on people as well as you might when hundreds are in attendance, nothing could have distracted me more while running up those steps than these words: There goes a man in great shape. I could have died a happy man, as Mr Corleone himself Al Pacino told the audience of his appreciation for the work we volunteers do. Eddie Bolton (first volunteered 2010)

I will never forget the surprise movie in 2007 (300) and helping organise the queue; the atmosphere inside and out of the Savoy was one of excitement, nervousness and inquisition - a brilliant buzz. Sean Doyle (first volunteered 2005) Strange things happen as a volunteer at the film festival. Without realising, the president may ask you about your views on a film; youll be holding an umbrella for Aidan Gillen; youll turn around at the bar to find Timothy Spall standing next to you. That these moments dont threaten to be the most memorable of your experience says everything about how enjoyable the whole ten days of JDIFF can be. Sean Noone (first volunteered 2010) Some of my best memories are winning the film quiz in 2011, roaring out Since You Been Gone with my brothers at the 2010 closing party, and meeting my girlfriend in 2009. This will be my fifth JDIFF, and I cant wait to add to the list! Eoghan Bonass (first volunteered 2009) Peter Sheridan telling stories of auld Dublin in the festival club with the Hill Street skateboarding gang in the audience. Sarah Ahern (first volunteered 2012)

Thats why Jameson Dublin International Film Festival is delighted to announce its partnership with The Church Restaurant, Bar & Venue for the 2013 season. When not making the most of the jam-packed schedule of film and industry events, we encourage you to come soak up the festival atmosphere in the stylish surrounds of The Church. Located within a few minutes walk from all our cinemas, this unique venue will play host to top entertainment each evening from 9.30pm, as well as offering an opportunity to mingle with film-makers, festival-goers and the JDIFF team. So consider yourself invited to join us and discuss your festival highlights over a glass of Jameson or two. Please check the Your Festival section on jdiff.com for updates on the Club entertainment.

WEVE ALWAYS WANTED ONE: A PL ACE WHERE ALL THE FESTIVAL STAFF AND AUDIENCES CAN HANG OUT DURING THE DAY. AND HERE IT IS!

Filmbase, Curved Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 2 Weve always wanted a place where the festival staff, guests, film-makers and audiences can hang out during the day. And here it is! Were delighted to announce our partnership with Filmbase: the official Festival HUB. Here you can buy all the tickets you need, pick up festival information, get great recommendations, attend daily industry events, grab a coffee with staff, volunteers, film-makers or have a thorough read of the programme, all while immersed in that unique JDIFF atmosphere. The Festival Hub promises to be a hive of activity. We are telling everyone in town that 11am is an ideal time to get the day started in the Roasted Browne Caf on the first floor in Filmbase. A place with probably the best coffee in town and definitely the best festival atmosphere! Why not sign up for one of the training events in our Screen Test Programme? There is something on every weekday. In the afternoons things will be hotting up on the JDIFF interview couch and you never know who might turn up. Or stop by whenever you like and take a chance on Festival Directors Roulette! We are also interested in what you have to say so while youre hanging out at the Festival Hub feel free to express your JDIFF experience by recording a shout out for JDIFF TV or you can just have a chat and let us know what you think. So if youre in the city during the day and want to feel the real festival vibe, get in touch with other cinema lovers, our staff or volunteers, just call in to Filmbase, Curved St, Temple Bar youll find everyone there.
