The 33rd Helsinki International Film Festival – Love & Anarchy



The 33rd Helsinki International Film Festival – Love & Anarchy

Il Festival Internazionale del Cinema – Love & Anarchy viene organizzato ogni anno nel mese di settembre. L'intento del più grande Festival del Cinema, fondato nel 1988, è di celebrare l'arte del cinema con coraggio e senza pregiudizi promuovendo una selezione di film controversi e visualmente stupendi. Il Festival vuole completare l'offerta cinematografica di Helsinki proponendo film che diversamente non sarebbe possibile vedere sugli schermi nazionali.

Si prega di controllare il sito del festival per l'acquisto dei biglietti e per eventuali cambiamenti di programma:

"Provocative Italian feature Bad Tales is one of those films that aren’t afraid to confront you with the grimmest aspects of the human condition, but yet leave you feeling strangely exalted by the sheer cinematic invention involved. A strange hybrid – part quasi-abstract mood piece, part tragedy, part sour social comedy – this second feature by the D’Innocenzo brothers (2018’s Boys Cry) is an oddly poetic ensemble story covering events in three families over one long, hot and very bad summer on the outskirts of Rome."

Jonathan Romney, Screen Daily

"Innocence is not a concept to be found in the D’Innocenzo Brothers’ cinematic oeuvre, which consists of two films so far: Boys Cry and Bad Tales, both of which forgo the notion of childhood as a state of uncorrupted naivete. Rather, in the Italian siblings’ deeply cynically, Todd Solondz-ian worldview, humans are animals – an untamed snarl of impulses, emotions and predatory self-interest – and children are perhaps the least predictable of all, lacking an innate moral center and therefore susceptible to the influence of others."

Peter Debruge, Variety

"There is something rich and strange and generous in Matteo Garrone’s new live-action version of the Pinocchio story, for which the director and his co-screenwriter Massimo Ceccherini have gone back to the original 1883 children’s tale by Carlo Collodi.

They have given us a story which combines sentimentality and grotesqueness in a very startling way. It often looks like a horror film. This Pinocchio could almost have been one of the stories that Garrone dramatised in his freaky-fabular movie Tale of Tales, and the story is very different from the legendary 1940 Disney musical version (without which, admittedly, no one would care about any new remake or reinvention).

Walt Disney, for example, never had Pinocchio being brutally hanged from a tree by two swindlers who wanted to rob him. But one of the interesting things about this drama is that Pinocchio – the magical wooden puppet who yearns to be a “real boy” – gains this authentic humanness by being exploited, by suffering and finally getting re-born with skin and hair … in a stable, as it happens."

Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

"Marco Bellocchio’s The Traitor is a big, handsomely shot, true-crime gangster movie, ranging over 30 years from the early 1970s to the late 90s, scripted by Bellocchio with screenwriters Valia Santella, Ludovica Rampoldi and Francesco Piccolo. The film has the authoritative air of official history: sometimes brash, sometimes stolid, sometimes with flashes of inspiration.

(…) There really are some show-stopping scenes: perhaps especially when Tommaso and Cristina are taken out over the ocean in separate helicopters and Tommaso is made to watch as his terrified wife is dangled out, about to be dropped. This horrific threat is what convinced him to snitch, we are given to understand. Who can blame him? Perhaps those who think that this episode is a self-serving fantasy of Tommaso’s to justify ratting out his fellow bad guys. At any rate, Bellocchio takes the anecdote at face value, and it’s a sensational image. The attempted shooting of Contorno is white-knuckle stuff, and there is a very good performance from that other Italian acting veteran Luigi Lo Cascio – whom I first saw in Giuseppe Piccioni’s excellent 2001 movie Light of My Eyes.

The Traitor is big, bold, confident film-making."

The Truffle Hunters

Italia, Grecia, Stati Uniti 2020

Regia: Michael Dweck, Gregory Kershaw

Durata: 84'



Sabato 19.9. ore 11:15, Bio Rex

Venerdì 25.9. ore 18:30, Korjaamo Kino Töölö / Elokuvasali


"Documentaries don’t come much more delightful than Michael Dweck and Gregory Kershaw’s immersive consideration of the canine truffle hunters along with their two-legged friends.

Much of the film is shot with a painterly eye, so that scenes involving the men have the look of Old Masters, steeped in the colours and culture of the countryside. Dweck and Kershaw’s eye for the quirky extends to occasionally handing the cinematographer role to one of the dogs, so that suddenly we’re running at pace, nose to the ground or occasionally sniffing the air, the dog’s shake of the head and camera eliciting the sort of wholesome chuckles too rarely enjoyed by cinema audiences. Composer Ed Cortes’ score mixed with retro Italian pop, meanwhile, accentuates the humour and charming eccentricity of the men’s lives.

Once you’ve spent an hour and 24 minutes there, you’re likely to be minded to sniff out a few simple pleasures of your own."
