Ten new films
Highlight: Hirokazu Koreeda’s masterpiece, with super-high concentration of tenderness.
It is definitely the most difficult film to grab at the last film festival.
Someone on Douban sighed under the above stills, "What kind of plot can capture this scene is fascinating." Just looking at the smile on the face of this family, who would have thought that they were street rats who had no blood relationship and just got together to steal for a living? Seeking love in a cruel world is Hirokazu Koreeda’s insistence for many years, and The Thief Family is a fruitful result.
The Hollywood Reporter once commented on this film: "Who can surpass Hirokazu Koreeda? He knows that sometimes whispering is better than shouting. "
To tell the truth, even when watching the trailer, watching Sakura Ando and the smile on mayu’s dirty face made Xiao Dianjun feel hit (not because of his face value).
Highlight: It may be the best realistic movie in recent years.
The Lebanese film Capernaum won the grand prize of the jury in Cannes. According to media reports, the audience cried when it was shown. The story boldly challenges the oriental audience’s family concept: a 12-year-old Lebanese boy sued his parents for bringing him into this world, but did not raise him well?
The foreign media evaluation of this film is controversial. A.V.club and other media think, why does the subject matter of realistic criticism always have to be bitter and bitter, and "forced" tears? ! Such a controversial work, you really have to go to the big screen to see what it is.
Highlight: See how the director of Sister Ada tells the story of depressed times and indulgent love.
If you are keen on nostalgic films such as Midnight in Paris and The Artist, you must choose Cold War first. Director Pawe? Pawlikowski used his black-and-white photography to capture the gloom of Poland and the debauchery of Paris during the Cold War.
The story is adapted from the personal experience of the director’s parents and tells the story of a musician and a female singer falling in love. Foreign media VOX exclaimed after watching the film, "I have never seen any film that can show such a strong desire in every scene."
Highlight: A bold film of mixed genre, shooting a family film in the form of a thriller.
The story of "Guardianship" is not outstanding, telling that a couple was sentenced to joint custody of their 12-year-old son after divorce; However, according to the audience’s comments, the thriller atmosphere of this film is comparable to that of Quiet Place, and even some girls can’t bear such repression and cry.
A.V.club believes that this film will resonate strongly with all those who grew up in an unhealthy family environment when they were young. (Here @ melrose)
Highlight: It is the strongest Japanese film in recent years.
Punk Samurai is a magical blockbuster set in the Edo era, which tells the story of extraordinary swordsmen fighting against disasters. Just looking at the lineup and trailer, you may think that the producer of this film is crazy.
The director is Gakury? Ishii who insists on the experimental style and is often not accepted by the public because he plays too fast; It happened that the screenwriter was the most popular Kuro Miyato.
The cast is full of handsome guys and beautiful women (G Ayano, Keiko Kitagawa, Shōta Sometani), but in the trailer, all the idol baggage has been forgotten.
As can be seen from the trailer alone, this film is a mixture of strange shapes, Indian songs and dances, and a story with a strange brain. Fans who like Japanese movies can have a challenge.
How to strike up a girl at a party
Highlight: A psychedelic youth film with bursting imagination, which is specially designed for rebellious children of all ages.
In 1977, three punk-obsessed teenagers broke into an alien party, and one of them even fell in love with a rebellious alien girl.
Director john cameron mitchell is good at shooting bold and different youth films, and his previous work "Rock Barbie" is well-known.
The film is creative from the poster to the preview, but the freshness of rotten tomatoes is only 46%. The film critic of The New Yorker complained, "This kind of film desperately wants to be a cult classic, but it doesn’t care if it is well made."
Highlight: Most documentaries make you feel heavy, but they will definitely make you laugh.
Face, Village is the latest work of 90-year-old "New Wave Grandma" Agnès Varda. It was nominated for an Oscar and won awards in several film festivals in France and the United States.
This is a documentary without a clear theme or purpose, but it is extremely naive and moving. In the film, Valda, who is dyed with a two-color mushroom head, and the artist JR drive a pickup truck and shoot along the way with a camera. The film critic of The Boston Globe even said, "People who can’t enjoy this film well, I think they have no hope for life."
Blood of the lone wolf
Highlight: In this Japanese gangster film, K?ji Yakusho actually performed the flavor of Kitano Takeshi.
Set in Hiroshima in 1988, it tells the story of an employee missing case jointly investigated by Tori Matsuzaka and K?ji Yakusho.
Director Kazuya Shiraishi has attracted much attention for her bold female films in recent two years, including the erotic film Cats and Yuu Aoi’s The Birds whose Names She Doesn’t Know.
The place where Kumagaya is staying.
Highlight: If Hideyoshi Okuda’s movie ever made you cry and laugh, don’t miss this new work.
"Where Kumatani Shouyi is" is a new work by director Shoichi Okuda, starring Tsutomu Yamazaki and KiKi KiRin.
Shouyi Kumatani is known as the "immortal of painting" in Japanese art history. He was born in a rich family, but he lived a simple life all his life. In his later years, he and his wife stayed indoors for 30 years and painted in their own garden. Sh?ichi Okita has always been good at portraying touching people. This time, it is better to pause the busy life and watch the clouds, fish and ants passing by together with the old painter.
The Shawshank Redemption
Highlight: As long as the film exists, The Shawshank Redemption can find its audience.
It will undoubtedly become the hottest classic in this film festival.
This story about prison break has become a symbol of spiritual salvation for the audience who love it. Even today, there are still many netizens who are constantly brushing on N.
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

Even though the current CG technology is far better than that in 2003, the series is still difficult to surpass.
This film was shown in the mainland in 2004, and a trilogy was shown in Beijing International Film Festival in 2012. This time, the missed fans must catch up.
Night of the living dead.
Highlight: "A trip to Busan" and "Walking with a heavy load" are all "copying" it.
In 1968, the granular black-and-white horror film was regarded as the real originator of the funeral film.
Although there was a zombie image in horror movies before, it was never so horrible — — No thoughts, only the desire to eat people.
The picture of the daughter who turned into a zombie killing and eating her mother was unacceptable to many people at that time. Director George A. Romero’s use of zombie horror films to map social reality has also become a widely used technique since then.
Recommended reason: Do you still need a reason?
The treatment of Titanic in mainland film festivals will always be — — The venue was full.
But what’s more special is that this film festival saw the Dolby Vision format version specially produced by Cameron for the 20th anniversary of its release.
Critics such as Cameron have also expressed satisfaction with the screening effect, saying that this version "surpasses 3D and 70 mm film, and Titanic has never been so good."
Highlight: Atypical Hitchcock movies, the beauty of joan fontaine may impress you the most after watching it.
The story of Butterfly Dream is adapted from Rebecca by mystery novel in Daphne du Maurier. It tells the story of a woman who finds her husband’s dead ex-wife, Rebecca, lingering like a nightmare after she marries into a grand villa …
This is Hitchcock’s first film shot in Hollywood, and he won the Best Film and Best Photography in the 13th Academy Awards.
Taste of tea soaked in rice
Highlight: In Ozu’s movies, both saury and tea soaked rice are the taste of life.
In 1952, a 35 mm film version was shown at the Shanghai Film Festival in 2013. This time, after 4k restoration, the definition was higher.
"The Taste of Tea Soaking Rice" describes the contradiction between Sasaki Maoji, who was born in rural Xinzhou, and darling daughter Miao Zi, who was born in upper class. Miao Zi can’t stand many of her husband’s "bad habits", such as smoking cheap cigarettes and eating tea and making rice.
The film was shot between the more famous (1951) and (1953), and Ozu’s meticulous observation of traditional family life in his later works can also be seen in the film.
Sissy princess series
Highlight: For many post-70s and 80s, there is only one princess in the world, and her name is Cece.
Princess Sissi trilogy was introduced by Shanghai Translation Studio in 1988. This series of stories is adapted from a palace anecdote after the election of the Austrian Emperor Flantz in the mid-19th century, telling the story of Princess Sissi and Flantz.
In those days when there were no Hollywood blockbusters, everyone was watching this movie, admiring how beautiful foreign princesses were and how many beautiful skirts they had.
Interestingly, the German film unit of this film festival will also show a biographical film about the heroine romy schneider. The film tells the story of the last interview with the media in Luo Mi Schneider’s life. By showing the conversation between an ambitious reporter and this fragile and childish female star, it shows the public a "Sissy Princess" that they don’t know.
Luis Bunuel’s The Prudent Charm of the Bourgeois in the Master’s Tribute Unit
Highlight: The most exciting thing about seeing luis Bunuel is that every scene of him may subvert your worldview.
Luis Bunuel’s six feature-length films will be shown in this film festival, and his short film with Dali will be shown in SIFF Classic Unit. And this is just the tip of the prolific Spanish movie master bunuel film career.
If you only choose one, the masterpiece will be the first. This film tells a strange story about six middle-class people who keep trying to have dinner, but are always interrupted unexpectedly, in which bunuel’s surreal style is brought into full play.
Xie Jin’s "furong town" in the Master Tribute Unit
Highlight: Choose the best China film, and it must be on the list.
On the eve of the release of Jiang Wen, this film festival is also attended by Jiang Wen, so let’s revisit this classic Chinese film directed by Xie Jin and written by Acheng, starring Jiang Wen and Liu Xiaoqing.
"furong town" is divided into two episodes, lasting 164 minutes, and tells the scene of unrest when the Cultural Revolution swept through Furong town in western Hunan. Hu Yuyin, a young woman who used to set up a tofu stall and had a prosperous business, was bullied in the movement. After her husband’s tragic death, her love with Qin Shutian, a rightist who swept the street, became her only comfort.
Jiang Wen was only 24 years old when he appeared in this film, but his image and acting skills in the film are very mature. The line "live, live like an animal" spoken by him through biting his teeth in the rain has become the crowning touch of this film.
Recommended reason: Japanese horror movies not only include Curse and Ring at Midnight, but also X Sanzhi.
X Sanctuary is directed by Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa and starring K?ji Yakusho. There are a lot of scenes that use space and composition to create a depressing atmosphere, which is completely different from the previous Japanese horror films that rely on ghosts and gods or violent murders to scare people.
The story tells the story of several bizarre murders in Tokyo. All the bodies are engraved with "X" symbols, and the suspects present don’t remember what they did. The criminal police department pursued the case, but it was interfered by the murderer who was suspected of hypnosis, and he began to become wrong.
The above is the "film guide that is the most difficult to grab in the film festival" compiled by Xiao Dianjun.
I don’t know which movies you all want to see this film festival.
