Kinečko staff recommends / 11 November

 

Just like yesterday, the core of Kinečko film magazine has come together to bring you a couple of hot tips and recommendations for today.

 

 

Eva Križková: April’s Daughter, Kino Nostalgia, 5:30 p.m.

 

I first encountered this film in Karlovy Vary when the director Václav Kadrnka, a great friend of Kinečko magazine, insisted I go and see it. When he argued it was the absolute top of the contemporary world cinema, he sounded so convinced that I really did get up early in the morning and sit on the floor of a crowded screening room during its first morning showing. It was well worth it. April’s Daughter is strong in its social commitment in a manner typical of the current Latin American cinema as well as unique thanks to its original story, balancing on the edges of crime film, thriller and family drama. If you have seen and enjoyed the Brazilian film A Wolf at the Door (O Lobo atrás da Porta, 2013), you simply can’t miss out on April’s Daughter.

 

 

 

 

Saša Gabrižová: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Kino Nostalgia, 8 p.m.

 

In our interview, the actor and director Jean-Marc Barr said that a quality film (in general) will make the viewer forget they’re sitting in a dark room and watching an audiovisual creation. The story will become part of them and question the little certainties they’d never doubted before. I think this awaits every audience member of the film Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. It’s been a while since I last enjoyed such a vivid portrayal and depth of characters, be it main or supporting ones. Round, realistic heroes without a hint of black and white flatness. Serious situations lightened with humour. The whole thing reminds of Fargo, perhaps because of its lead actress Frances McDormand. This film has been collecting audience awards at festivals all around the world (Toronto, San Sebastian, and best screenplay in Venice) and there is no wondering why.

The White World According to Daliborek (2017) and its main protagonist – a “gentle neo-Nazi” have prompted a controversial reaction in the Czech Republic. Klusák came across Dalibor on the Internet.

 

We’re slowly nearing the end of the festival and Kinečko has some recommendations for today’s screenings. This time we’re leaving Bratislava and expanding to the nearby cities.

Even today we’re here to recommend where to go and what to see.

The documentary film directed by Soňa Maletzová is a portrait of Marián Varga, a legend of the Czechoslovak music scene. As many suchlike films, this one too reflects a particularly difficult time in the life of the artist – a different, original, innovative, progressive and controversial musician. Some found his style, artistic and life alike, crazy, whereas others imitated and loved it.

 

This year the renowned Canadian director of experimental, documentary and fiction films Denis Côté comes with his new release A Skin So Soft, combining all these three types of film, although most of all, it can be labelled a documentary. The filmmaker follows a group of bodybuilders throughout their everyday lives, but focuses mainly on various activities related to weight training and working out, their mutual hobbies.
