The Worst Person in the World is a modern dramedy about the quest for love and meaning in contemporary Oslo. It chronicles four years in the life of Julie (Renate Reinsve), a young woman who navigates the troubled waters of her love life and struggles to find her career path, leading her to take a realistic look at who she really is.
Kiyokazu Kurihara and Satoko are a married couple. They do not have children. They learn about plenary adoption and adopt a baby son. 6 years later, the couple live happily with their son Asato. They receive a phone call from a woman, who introduces herself as Hikari Katakura. She is Asato's birth mother... There are few films that explore motherhood in such a serious, solid, beautiful way, far from judgements. Kawase takes the film in surprising directions, but her narrative and her naturalistic, engrossing style never loses emotional focus. The story may be a familiar one, but this Cannes-honored director lets it unfold with rare tenderness and mystery.

On a gray, foggy morning outside a large Polish city, Zhenia (Alec Utgoff), a masseur from the East, enters the lives of the wealthy residents of a gated community. Using hypnotic, almost magical techniques to get a residence permit, he starts working. The well-to-do residents in their cookie-cutter homes seemingly have it all, but they all suffer from an inner sadness, some unexplained longing. The attractive and mysterious newcomer's hands heal, and Zhenia's eyes seem to penetrate their souls. To them, his Russian accent sounds like a song from the past, a memory of their seemingly safer childhoods. The latest from writer/director Malgorzata Szumowska (Elles, In the Name of) and her longtime collaborator Michal Englert is an unclassifiable meditation on class, immigration, and global warming with touches of magical realism and moments of sober beauty and subtle humor.
Con i film novità del programma delle prossime due settimane vi proponiamo un viaggio da un'estremità all'altra del continente euroasiatico per un'immersione nelle onde di due cinematografie contemporanee feconde e originali. In TRUE MOTHERS di Naomi Kawase, maestra giapponese di sensibilità naturalistica e delicato lirismo, l’eloquenza di silenzi e sguardi, il potere dei minimi gesti è l’idioma con il quale si esplora una scelta personale di maternità - sullo sfondo il macchinoso sistema nipponico delle adozioni - senza alcuna pretesa di giudicare i protagonisti, che anzi sembrano come protetti dalla costante, premurosa presenza fuori-schermo della regista. Da un oceano all’altro, dall’estremo levante alle terre occidentali, la scuola lusitana contemporanea continua a sorprenderci per coraggio autoriale, lucidità sociale e piena consapevolezza del mezzo filmico.
A look into the life of Laurent Garnier, one of the pioneers of house music, from his emergence on the music scene in the 80's to now. In the film, the tour footage and interviews are interspersed with archival footage that provides a flashback to the late ’80s, when the techno scene was emerging in Detroit and England, in clubs like Manchester’s Hacienda, where Garnier started his DJing journey, and then Rex, a club in Paris, where Garnier moved to next. The film also includes the political and judicial response to rave culture, which in some countries was met with police brutality. “We’re not where we are today without a fight,” Garnier said. When Garnier set off on his 2018/2019 world tour, Rivoire traveled with him, taking in performances in front of 15,000 people at Sónar Festival in Barcelona, Bassiani, a mecca for techno in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, and crowded clubs in Tokyo. Rivoire also filmed interviews with other dance music pioneers, such as Carl Cox, Pedro Winter, Seth Troxler, Jeff Mills and Derrick May.

the new proposal of the week is a comedy! So you will no longer say that the boring and whining ones of Detour hit you first with unsustainable cinematic boulders, and then annihilate you with the blows of desperate human tragedies or global catastrophes in which the happy-end is banned by statute. Certainly the definition of comedy in our part is slippery, dubious, sometimes fueled by a sense of the grotesque and black humor, sometimes by the most ruthless social satire, in which a melancholy and bewildered condition of existence merges with a tragicomic vision of humanity...

Based at the legendary DETOUR Arthouse Cinema, in the heart of Rome since 1997, ON THE ROAD FILM FESTIVAL is devoted to contemporary independent cinema - fiction, documentary and experimental - presenting travelogues, urban and waste-land wanderings, real or imaginary topographies, unexpected detours, psycho-geographical drifts, migration and nomadism. We look for films that develop, through linguistic and narrative skills, a critical and inventive approach to the subject guidelines of the Festival: a traveling mood with digressions from fixed paths, where the route is what matters, not the destination. The Festival hosts screenings, master classes, meetings, art exhibitions, live performances and music, both at DETOUR Cinema and at a variety of cinema venues, film clubs, schools, public libraries and other unusual locations in Rome and and in its surrounding area.

The front line told through the lens of thirteen photojournalists, who with their shots showed the hell, the horrors, the suffering and the indelible scars of war. The voices, photographs and memories of men and women become the stages of a physical and emotional journey between past and present. Because the front line is not only where bombs are shot and dropped, but everywhere you "fight" daily for survival. Original Italian version with English subtitles.

Si è concluso da pochi giorni il Torino Film Festival. La 39esima edizione, pur dovendo fare i conti con l’era Covid, ci ha regalato un risultato incoraggiante, con sale sold out per le proiezioni in concorso. Segno evidente che il pubblico cinematografico ha ancora a cuore il rituale della visione collettiva. Vi segnaliamo alcuni titoli fra i più interessanti ed altri che ci piacerebbe proporvi anche al Cine Detour fra quelli che siamo riusciti a vedere in anteprima.
