Thanks to the lovely break at the end of this month, now I can go to Montréal during the last few days of Festival du nouveau cinéma. My friends and I book a package for the festival at Auberge Alternative, which offers a pretty good deal. The package includes 3 tickets to see the films of our choice, except the opening and closing nights. So I am making a list of what I might see, given my arrival on 22 October.
More details on each film can be found on the festival’s website. Just search with the title. Comments and suggestions are really welcomed.
- The Ditch
France – Belgium / Chinese / labour camp, communist, 1950s
- The Sleeping Beauty
France / French – Russian / fairy tale, adaptation
- The Heart of Auschwitz
Canada / English / WWII, Auschwitz
- As a Young Girl of Thirteen
France / French / WWII, Auschwitz
(Well, I will probably choose one of the two.)
United Kingdom / English / sci-fi, Mexico, quarantine
- Moomins and the Comet Chase
Finland / English / Moomins!!!!!!!
- Another Year
United Kingdom / English / drama, family, couple
- The Illusionist
United Kingdom / No dialogue / animation

- Mamas and Papas
- Dirty Diaries
- Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives
(Well, I have seen this in Bangkok already.)
- The Headless Family
Want to see, but cannot:
This looks really interesting, but it is shown before I arrive. Too bad.
