THE RED TURTLE ★★★★½
D: Michael Dudok de Wit.
Artistic producer: Isao Takahata.
A Studio Ghibli co-production. Barring Miyazaki, their best in years. Deceptively simplistic. Moving. Unexpected.
D: Nicolette Krebitz.
S: Lilith Stangenberg, Georg Friedrich, Silke Bodenbender, Saskia Rosendahl.
Surreal, funny, erotic. Taboo-busting maybe the dominant force, but there's more going on.
D: Edoardo de Angelis.
S: Gaetano Bruno, Marco Mario de Notaris, Angela Fontana, Marianna Fontana.
Self-determination, co-dependency, exploitation. Unusual portrait of almost post-apocalyptic poverty.
