D: Cédric Kahn (Regrets).
S: Anthony Bajon, Damien Chapelle, Alex Brendemühl, Louise Grinberg, Hanna Schygulla.
Societies tend to discard these characters. A lovely, empathetic story. Humanistic and compassionate, with an ace ending.
DAUGHTER OF MINE (Figlia mia) ★★★★☆
D: Laura Bispuri (Sworn Virgin).
S: Valeria Golino, Alba Rohrwacher, Sara Casu, Udo Kier.
Compellingly restless, in your face camerawork reflects lead. Give director Laura Bispur a blockbuster already. Heightened melodrama handled skilfully.
THE REAL ESTATE (Toppen av ingenting) ★★★☆☆
Ds: Måns Månsson, Axel Petersén (Avalon).
S: Léonore Ekstrand, Christer Levin, Christian Saldert, Olof Rhodin, Carl Johan Merner, Don Bennechi.
Satire on property business, peopled by grotesques. Even though less than 90 minutes, does not use runtime effectively. Is too superficial, but uses horror movie stylings.
