    VENUS IN FUR

    (La Vénus à la fourrure)

    Directed by ROMAN POLANSKI/2014/France/96mins.

    With Mathieu Almaric and Emmanuelle Seigner

     

     

     

    Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s groundbreaking novella, VENUS IN FUR is the latest film from master filmmaker Roman Polanski. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) complains that no actress he’s seen has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave…Not only is Vanda a perfect fit (even sharing the character's name), but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively, learned her lines by heart and even bought her own props. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until…(In French with English subtitles).

    Korea /2014/126mins.

    With Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Kang ho Song, Ah-sung ko, Octavia Spencer

    In the near future, an experiment to counteract global warming causes an ice age that kills nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the 'Snowpiercer', a massive train, powered by a perpetual-motion engine that travels on a globe-spanning track. A class system is installed, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the tail. Seventeen years later, in the year 2031, the tail inhabitants prepare for the latest in a series of rebellions. Guards arrive periodically to deliver protein blocks for food, and take some of the children. During one of the guards’ visits, Curtis (Chris Evans) leads the tail inhabitants in revolt, forcing their way through several train cars to the prison section. There, they release prisoner Namgoong Minsu (Kang ho Song), the man who built the doors dividing each car, and his daughter Yona (Ah-sung ko). They offer him Kronal, an addictive drug, as payment for unlocking the doors…

    From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski comes Ida, a moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s

    This time, the famous photographer Yann-Arthus-Bertrand is looking at one of the major challenges to human survival: WATER. Today, against a backdrop of sharply increasing demand, growth in the world population and the growing impact of an unsettled climate, water has become one of the most precious natural resources of our planet. Faithful to Yann Arthus-Bertrand's reputation, A THIRSTY WORLD, filmed in some 20 countries, reveals the mysterious and fascinating world of fresh water through spectacular aerial images shot in regions that are difficult to reach and rarely filmed, like Southern Sudan or

    Northern Congo. It also lets us discover the most beautiful landscapes on our planet, the lakes, rivers and wetlands created by water.

    SNOWPIERCER

    Directed by BONG JOON-HO/USA/South

    Korea /2014/126mins.

    With Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, John Hurt, Ed Harris, Kang ho Song, Ah-sung ko, Octavia Spencer

    In the near future, an experiment to counteract global warming causes an ice age that kills nearly all life on Earth. The only survivors are the inhabitants of the 'Snowpiercer', a massive train, powered by a perpetual-motion engine that travels on a globe-spanning track. A class system is installed, with the elites inhabiting the front of the train and poor inhabiting the tail. Seventeen years later, in the year 2031, the tail inhabitants prepare for the latest in a series of rebellions. Guards arrive periodically to deliver protein blocks for food, and take some of the children. During one of the guards’ visits, Curtis (Chris Evans) leads the tail inhabitants in revolt, forcing their way through several train cars to the prison section. There, they release prisoner Namgoong Minsu (Kang ho Song), the man who built the doors dividing each car, and his daughter Yona (Ah-sung ko). They offer him Kronal, an addictive drug, as payment for unlocking the doors…

    From acclaimed director Pawel Pawlikowski comes Ida, a moving and intimate drama about a young novitiate nun in 1960s

    Poland who, on the verge of taking her vows, makes a shocking discovery about her past. She is shocked with the declaration that her real name is Ida and her Jewish parents were murdered during the Nazi occupation.

    VENUS IN FUR

    (La Vénus à la fourrure)

    Directed by ROMAN POLANSKI/2014/France/96mins.

    With Mathieu Almaric and Emmanuelle Seigner

     

     

     

    Based on the Tony Award-winning Broadway play by David Ives, which itself was based on Leopold von Sacher-Masoch’s groundbreaking novella, VENUS IN FUR is the latest film from master filmmaker Roman Polanski. Alone in a Paris theater after a long day of auditioning actresses for his new play, writer-director Thomas (Amalric) complains that no actress he’s seen has what it takes to play the lead female character: a woman who enters into an agreement with her male counterpart to dominate him as her slave…Not only is Vanda a perfect fit (even sharing the character's name), but she apparently has researched the role exhaustively, learned her lines by heart and even bought her own props. The likeness proves to be much more than skin-deep. As the extended "audition" builds momentum, Thomas moves from attraction to obsession until…(In French with English subtitles).

    Acclaimed Iranian filmmaker Jafar Panahi bravely defies his 20-year ban on filmmaking yet again, and stunningly, he has created a masterpiece that not only lives up to his earlier, pre-ban work but surpasses it in many ways. In a secluded house by the sea with the curtains shut, a screenwriter hides from the world with only his dog as company. The tranquility is abruptly broken one night by the arrival of a young woman fleeing from the authorities. Refusing to leave, she takes refuge in the house. But come dawn, another unexpected presence will change everything.

    Bertolucci’s first Italian-language feature in 32 years follows Lorenzo, a quirky 14-year-old loner who has difficult relationships with his parents and peers. Lorenzo decides to take a break from it all by hiding out in his building’s neglected basement where for an entire week he will finally avoid all conflict and pressure to be a “normal” teenager. But an unexpected visit from Lorenzo’s older half-sister Olivia changes everything. A worldly 25-year-old beauty, her problematic and fragile state upsets Lorenzo’s total escape from reality. A few emotional days and nights with his sister Olivia will inspire Lorenzo to see the world through new eyes.

Lorenzo decides to take a break from it all by hiding out in his building’s neglected basement where for an entire week he will finally avoid all conflict and pressure to be a “normal” teenager. But an unexpected visit from Lorenzo’s older half-sister Olivia changes everything. A worldly 25-year-old beauty, her problematic and fragile state upsets Lorenzo’s total escape from reality. A few emotional days and nights with his sister Olivia will inspire Lorenzo to see the world through new eyes.

    SALVO

    Directed by FABIO GRASSADONIA & ANTONIO PIAZZA
    Italy/2013/104mins.

    With Saleh Bakri, Luigi Lo Cascio, Sara Serraiocco

    The most unusually expressionistic feature film of the year, SALVO was the sensational winner of this year’s Cannes Film Festival Critic’s Week. A henchman for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo (Saleh Bakri, The Band’s Visit, The Time That Remains) is solitary, cold, and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate someone from a rival Mafia clan, he discovers Rita (Sara Serraiocco), a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by while her brother is assassinated. When Salvo decides to spare her life, something extraordinary happens. From then on, these two beings, both haunted by the world they belong to, are linked together forever.

    ABUSE OF WEAKNESS

    Directed by CATHERINE BREILLAT/France/2013/105mins.

    With Isabelle Huppert, Kool Shen, Jean-François Lepetit

     

     

    In many ways Catherine Breillat is one of the most determined, individualistic female filmmakers in the world, and in her latest film she turns the camera on herself. Victim of a stroke in 2004, Breillat was forced to stop making films until her determination and strength brought her to make Abuse of Weakness. Isabelle Huppert plays Maud, a fiercely independent filmmaker who struggles to get her life back after a brain hemorrhage. With a mix of masochistic tendencies, manipulations and risk taking, she falls for a charismatic con man (rapper Kool Shen) who begins, step by step, to take a stronghold on her psyche and her current project. Abuse of Weakness is the latest work that exposes the driving force of a complex life and career. (In French with English subtitles).

     

    OFFICIAL SELECTION:

    New York, London, Toronto Film Festivals

     

    “CATHERINE BREILLAT IS A MASTER at depicting women in peril, while at the same time imputing to them questionable character traits...the diminutive Huppert plays with eviscerating attention to detail, turning her body into a human wreckage.”-Ela Bittencourt, Slant

    True to the rest of her work, THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE SITUATION IS TOO COMPLEX TO REDUCE TO EASY EXPLANATIONS, and though many will mistake Abuse of Weakness as an act of either catharsis or revenge, it seems more accurate to interpret Breillat’s exercise as an attempt to understand the often-contradictory impulses that led to her predicament.”

    -Peter Debruge, Variety

     

    “The final sequence…acts as a kind of skeleton key for all that came before…It’s a Hail Mary of the sort ONLY A TRULY COURAGEOUS FILMMAKER AND STAR WOULD DARE ATTEMPT, and it functions beautifully….That warts-and-all sensibility is the key to true humanist cinema”-Simon Howell, Sound on Sight

    “CATHERINE BREILLAT IS A MASTER at depicting women in peril, while at the same time imputing to them questionable character traits...the diminutive Huppert plays with eviscerating attention to detail, turning her body into a human wreckage.”-Ela Bittencourt, Slant

    True to the rest of her work, THE PSYCHOLOGY OF THE SITUATION IS TOO COMPLEX TO REDUCE TO EASY EXPLANATIONS, and though many will mistake Abuse of Weakness as an act of either catharsis or revenge, it seems more accurate to interpret Breillat’s exercise as an attempt to understand the often-contradictory impulses that led to her predicament.”

    -Peter Debruge, Variety

     

    “The final sequence…acts as a kind of skeleton key for all that came before…It’s a Hail Mary of the sort ONLY A TRULY COURAGEOUS FILMMAKER AND STAR WOULD DARE ATTEMPT, and it functions beautifully….That warts-and-all sensibility is the key to true humanist cinema”-Simon Howell, Sound on Sight

    SALVO

    Directed by FABIO GRASSADONIA & ANTONIO PIAZZA
    Italy/2013/104mins.

    With Saleh Bakri, Luigi Lo Cascio, Sara Serraiocco

    The most unusually expressionistic feature film of the year, SALVO was the sensational winner of this year’s Cannes Film Festival Critic’s Week. A henchman for the Sicilian Mafia, Salvo (Saleh Bakri, The Band’s Visit, The Time That Remains) is solitary, cold, and ruthless. When he sneaks into a house to eliminate someone from a rival Mafia clan, he discovers Rita (Sara Serraiocco), a young blind girl who powerlessly stands by while her brother is assassinated. When Salvo decides to spare her life, something extraordinary happens. From then on, these two beings, both haunted by the world they belong to, are linked together forever.

    ABUSE OF WEAKNESS

    Directed by CATHERINE BREILLAT/France/2013/105mins.

    With Isabelle Huppert, Kool Shen, Jean-François Lepetit

     

     

    In many ways Catherine Breillat is one of the most determined, individualistic female filmmakers in the world, and in her latest film she turns the camera on herself. Victim of a stroke in 2004, Breillat was forced to stop making films until her determination and strength brought her to make Abuse of Weakness. Isabelle Huppert plays Maud, a fiercely independent filmmaker who struggles to get her life back after a brain hemorrhage. With a mix of masochistic tendencies, manipulations and risk taking, she falls for a charismatic con man (rapper Kool Shen) who begins, step by step, to take a stronghold on her psyche and her current project. Abuse of Weakness is the latest work that exposes the driving force of a complex life and career. (In French with English subtitles).

    BOYHOOD

    Directed by RICHARD LINKLATER/2014/166mins.

    With Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater

     

     

    Filmed over twelve years with the same cast, Richard Linklater’s BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette and Mason’s parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha. BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past, and an ode to growing up and parenting. It’s impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking of our own journey.

    Occasionally MBC will give audiences an opportunity to see some of the most challenging, provocative, acclaimed, and masterful international films of the year that usually do not get a wide theatrical release, but deserve attention. This is one of them. It is rarely screened in the US because of its running time, (4 hours), but that should not be a deterrent against seeing one of the very best films of the year. It will be presented with a 15 minute intermission with complimentary NESPRESSO.

    NORTE, THE END OF HISTORY

    (Norte, hangganen ng kasaysayan)

     

    Directed by LAV DIAZ/Phillipines/2013/250mins.

    With Sid Lucero, Angeli Bayani, Archie Alemania

     

     

     

    Lav Diaz’s epic reimagining of Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment is both an intimate human drama and a cosmic treatise on the origin of evil. Unfolding across the sun drenched fields and dark city streets of the Filipino island of Luzon, Norte, The End of History is a tale of murder, hate and hope from one of the world’s most uncompromising cinematic visionaries. An embittered law student commits a brutal double murder; a family man takes the fall and is forced into a harsh prison sentence; a mother and her two children wander the countryside looking for some kind of redemption. (In Tagalog and English with English subtitles)
