Sunday Film Delicacies
Come and see Benicio del Toro’s Cannes Awarded acting in Che by Steven Soderbergh; Killing Kasztner, a Hungary-related documentary; and a Taiwan melodrama.
I Can’t Live Without You, based on a true story, caused a stir in Taiwan. The film is a classic melodrama about an uneducated father living on temporary jobs and about his little girl whom the authorities want to separate from each other. A realistic work with a simple and clear visual world and exceptionally credible acting. You can see one of the potential winners of the Breaking Waves Award at 20.15 in Uránia National Film Theatre!
Right before, at 17.30 you can view Che – The Argentine in the same venue, in Uránia in which Steven Soderbergh evokes the guerrilla war waged by now iconic Che Guevara in Cuba. Che is a real pleasure to watch: the Oscar-winning director shot the epic composed of two features on a relatively small budget whose first episode is brought to you by Titanic. Benicio del Toro won the best actor award in Cannes for his acting in the role of the main character!
Today the festival schedules the European premiere of a Hungary related documentary about Rezső Kasztner, reputed for dividing the public opinion. The documentary focuses on Kasztner’s activity during the Second World War (the famous Kasztner-train evacuated 1685 Jews to Switzerland) as well as his calumny and murder after the war, and the attempts to rehabilitate him. The premiere taking place in Toldi Cinema at 18.00 is going to be attended by the director and Kasztner’s daughter.
