More Acclaimed Foreign Film Entries In The Cinema One Filmfest That You Should Not Miss

 AND HERE ARE more foreign film entries in the Cinema One Filmfest that you should not miss:

“JUSTE LA FIN DU MONDE (IT’S ONLY THE END OF THE WORLD)” - This Canadian French drama by Xavier Dolan is the entry of Canada in the best foreign language film category of the coming Oscar Awards so it’ll be up against our own “Ma Rosa”. It stars Gaspar Ulliel as a terminally ill writer who goes back home after 12 years of being away to announce his impending death to his family in a reunion filled with doubts and tension. Also starring Oscar winner Marion Cotillard, Vincent Cassel, Nathalie Baye and Lea Seydoux.

‘ELLE’ - A French-German-Belgian psychological thriller directed by Paul Verhoeven starring Isabelle Huppert as a businesswoman who is raped in her own home by an unknown man. She then tracks down her rapist and stalks him back. It got much critical acclaim when shown at the last Cannes Filmfest and is France’s entry in the coming Oscars.

“NERUDA” - Pablo Neruda is a famous Chilean poet-politician, but this is not a filmbio on him. Rahter, it is an inventive take showing the function rather than the life of a writer. It stars Gael Garcia Bernal who searches for Neruda (Luis Gnecco) after he goes into hiding in 1948.

“GOODNIGHT MOMMY” - If you love horror films, you’d enjoy this Austrian film about twin brothers, nine years old, who wait for their mom’s return in their lonesome house in the countryside.
When she finally comes home, the mom’s face is heavily bandaged as she has undergone cosmetic surgery. But things don’t seem like they were before and the twins start to doubt whether this woman is actually their mother. What follows is a terrifying struggle with deadly consequences.
