From Rain to Eldorado
Three new US releases, including the much-hyped This Is It (Sony Pictures), hit screens today alongside two Turkish titles (MaXXimum is launching Levent Semerciet’s Nefes: Vatan Sagolsun, which closely explores the lives of 40 Turkish soldiers stationed on the Iraq border, while Kinostar releases Atil Inac’s comedy Kolpaçino, starring Safak Sezer) and two European auteur films.
Austrian audiences will be able to discover French film Let It Rain [+see also:
film profile], the third directorial feature by Agnès Jaoui. Starring alongside her loyal collaborator (and co-screenwriter) Jean-Pierre Bacri, and Jamel Debbouze, she plays a feminist with a successful career, who is the subject of a documentary whose summer shoot is full of surprises. The film is being released by Filmladen.
Meanwhile, Polyfilm is launching French/Belgian co-production Eldorado [+see also:
film profile], written, directed by and starring Bouli Lanners. In this his second directorial feature, the Belgian actor plays a gruff eccentric, who finds a young burglar (Fabrice Adde) in his house and, instead of reporting him, decides to take him back to his parents’ home. The two protagonists thus begin a journey full of strange characters and situations.
