Our colleagues from AperiTIFF asked Mihai Chirilov, the artistic director of the festival, what movies are not to be missed this edition.
We picked 8 titles and we are sure that at least one of them is already in your watchlist.
“France is present in more than 5 categories, this year at TIFF, including Shadows section, thematic section and the International Competition:
- Keep an Eye Out the bizzare police movie directed by Quentin Dupieux, where a tire is the killer.
- The new Assayas’ Non-Fiction, a truly must see.
- Golden Youth - a movie about youngsters and teenagers – a good occasion to meet Eva Ionescu, French-Romanian director.
- Synonyms, the big winner of the Golden Bear award this year, directed by Nadav Lapid, though a Israelian, he succeded to present a very french movie.
From the ‘’extreme cinephile experiencers” series we have:
- The Swedish X&Y
- The Danish Queen of Hearts
- The Israelian Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life, which will have 2 sets of Q&A: first session, with the main character’s mother and the second with the character himself (adults movie actor)
- MO, the Romanian title having its world premiere at Tiff. 18, with Razvan Vasilescu and Dana Rogoz in a cat vs mouse dangerous play, not suitable for minors.
