Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
TYTTÖ NIMELTÄ VARPU
Dir: Selma Vilhunen
Director Selma Vilhunen’s debut feature is an uplifting story about a young girl (newcomer Linnea Skog) who decides to track down her father after being disappointed by her immature mother (Finnish pop star Paula Vesala, in an affecting dramatic turn). Like its teenage heroine, the film tackles issues such as bullying, poverty and mental illness with considerable maturity and respect. Nominated for 10 Jussi Awards this year. “A tender-hearted coming-of-age story shot in a low-key, realist style.” - Alissa Simon, Variety.
This romantic comedy about a lawyer whose life falls apart after she takes on a case defending her ex-boyfriend was nominated for five César Awards in 2017, including Best Original Screenplay and Best Film. “A chaotic mid-life-crisis comedy anchored by a vibrant lead performance.” - Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter.
Jules returns to his hometown in Luxembourg after World War II to find a country deeply divided from four years of occupation. The young man finds work as an auxiliary policeman - a job that becomes extraordinarily challenging when he must investigate the murder of his girlfriend and her employer’s German family. Best Director winner at the 2016 Trophées Francophones du Cinéma.
