32nd Turin Film Festival

Event


Woody Allen, Nick Cave and Paolo Virzi, are only some of the names that make your mouth water; we are naturally referring to the 32nd edition (November 21 to 29) of the Turin Film Festival ( http://www.torinofilmfest.org/).


The festival, co-directed by Virzì with Emanuela Martini, continues to favor, on the one hand, the young filmmakers, or nearly newcomers. On the other hand, big film productions from all over the world still unpublished in Italy; and finally the most bizarre films or films of research, that they do reflect and focus on the value and the meaning of the cinema's entity-

Reading the plots of the 15 films in this year's competition, seems like there is an emergence of a common theme: the difficulty of growing up. The protagonists are mostly teenagers or kids in search of the meaning to be attributed to being an adult: their stories are ranging amongst the themes of the road movie (in the southern United States as in" Big Significant Things" by Bryan Reisberg), of the horror movie (the Australian "The Badabook" by Jennifer Kent), the erotic melodrama (the Duke of Burgundy Englishman Peter Strickland), the musical atmosphere lysergic techno and punk (in Italian "Frastuono" by Davide Maldi), the vampire story (here we are in New Zealand with "What We Do in the Shadows" by Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi).

Returning to the already famous names - some of which are famous all over the globe while others are only well-known to the movie lovers - Ready for a "name countdown"? Tommy Lee Jones starring in "The Homesman", a beautiful western in which Tommy Lee Jones directs and stars opposite Hilary Swank; the fascinating Mathieu Amalric with his sophisticated "La Chambre Bleue"; and of course the Woody Allen with a romantic comedy in the French Riviera of the 20s, with Colin Firth and Emma Stone struggling with magic and psychics.


The opening film will be "Gemma Bovery" by Anne Fontaine, where the beautiful Gemma Arterton plays the role of the heroine of the homonymous graphic novel by Posy Simmonds.
