Collection April 10th to July 24thClemens Klopfenstein, the "dinosaur of Swiss cinema", was already one of them in Solothurn Film Festival's first edition. He shot everything he could get his hands on: first 8mm, then Super8, later 16mm, Super16, 35mm and then Video8, Video Hi8, Analog then Digital, now hard disk. Has lived for forty years in Umbria as a painter, draughtsman, and produces films with Franciscan family budgets. The painter Balz, who sits jealously in Italy and harasses Clara, the actress, by telephone because of a lover. Balz wishes the rival all bad - and promptly he falls unhappily on his nose. When he succeeds in closing his mouth with a simple and very understandable wish, as required by his girlfriend, who has meanwhile arrived with him and is constantly babbling, the Italian driver realises that it is a brandy that helps his evil desires to come true. But she also discovers a magic potion that gives her the strength to transform things, day in night for example. She takes pleasure in taking advantage of it when Balz is at the wheel. Some part of me feels an enormous gratitude for movies that I don’t fully understand. The compulsive legibility of commercial movies — designed to be synopsized in three or four sentences, promoted in one or two catchphrases, represented in a short trailer, consumed in a single gulp. People are fond of comparing movies to dreams, but when was the last time you had a dream that could be synopsized as effortlessly as a Hollywood movie? Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader. 1989 The realistic interpretations that the film offers to explain the event are not important. What is more decisive is the fact that Klopfenstein has confirmed in ever new approaches that a community to which people come together for whatever reason cannot do without power structures. A thoughtful, highly thought-provoking film. Hans-Dieter Seidel, FAZ It's a black-and-white record of European cities in the dark (2-5am), from Basle to Belfast. Quiet, and meditative, what ermerges most strongly is an eerie sense of city landscapes as deserted film sets, in which the desolate architecture overwhelms any sense of reality. The whole thing is underscored by a beautiful composed' soundtrack, from quietly humming stretlamps to reggae and the rumble of armoured cars in Belfast. A strange and remarkable combination of dream, documentary and science-fiction. Chris Auty Der Schwarzweissfilm ist radikal im Ansatz und in der Durchführung. Während vieler Jahre fing Clemens Klopfenste in über fünfzehn Jahren mit einer kaum bewegten, hochsensiblen Kamera die Atmosphäre von europäischen Städten nach Mitternacht ein. Nichts stört die grobkörnigen Aufnahmen der Backsteinbauten aus Irland, des kyrillisch beschrifteten Express-Buses, der Innenansichten des Warschauer Zentralbahnhofs, der nächtlichen italienischen Prozession oder der verschneiten Basler Innenstadt zur Fasnachtszeit. Felix Aeppli Klopfenstein hat Bilder gemacht, wie man sie so friedlich unbestimmt dann findet, wenn man auf unbekanntes Gelände kommt und noch nicht weiss, was man darüber aussagen, und was aus dem allgemeinen atmosphärischen Eindruck hervorzuheben wäre. Der Blick verbohrt sich nicht, er fasst nichts ins Auge, er schweift weit, er folgt der Bewegung der S-Bahn, orientiert sich an einem Warnschild, einer Telefonzelle, gleitet weiter, belässt alles in der Nebensächlichkeit. Peter Schneider
15-year-old Mia faces an overwhelming transformation which puts her entire existence into question. Her body is changing radically, and despite desperate attempts to halt the process, she is soon forced to accept that nature is far more powerful than her. Swiss Film Award 2018: Best Fiction Film.
BLUE MY MIND
Though it is a slow burn, the doc is rewarding for the incredible, historic events captured within. A discovery of a whole wooly mammoth is just the beginning; footage that comes later of these genome farms, and a normalization of the cloning process is truly incredible, if not eerie. To bring things back to “Jurassic Park,” one of the scientists even talks about “perfecting God,” as if he were quoting Spielberg’s film. Nick Allen, rogerebert.com
Four comrades in arms attempt to influence the young Elisha, to make him overcome his conflicts of conscience and fully commit to their cause. In the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict DAWN sheds a new light on a key moment in history that allows for the resituating of the current political disputes. The film is a frightening and lucid journey into the mind of Elisha (Joel Basman), a young Zionist terrorist who is consumed by doubt and haunted by the ghosts of an ever-present past.
