Opera, Cairo Film Festival

3 Premios en Cairo

Desde el festival de Guadalajara vengo diciendo que Opera de Juan Patricio Riveroll es una rareza, una joya por fin ha sido reconocida en el Festival del Cairo y en grande. Usualmente no haría este tipo de post, pero de verdad me alegra muchísimo que por fin un jurado reconozca con tres premios a la transcendental cinta que tiene planeado su estreno en el primer semestre del 2008.

The International Critics Prize

Premio de la critica internacional

The film that explains nothing verbally and says everything visually, it is the cinematic language, the length of the setting, the timing ,the use of music , the movement of the two protagonists in rooms and landscape s, which identify the director as a great talent of modern cinema. The International Critics Prize, awarded by FIPRESCI, the Federation International de la Presse.

The Best first work of a Director
Premio opera prima

Only after this film had been running for about ten minutes did I realize I was putting my expectations into a work that was deliberately defying the general rules of the medium - and that kind of daring and creativity is very rare. I really believe this is a young first time film-maker with an extraordinary future. I already want to see his next movie.

The Prize for the Best actress
Premio mejor actriz a Marina Magro Soto

This was a very difficult prize to single out. There were so many wonderful and complex female characters in the movies. It took a lot of deliberation until finally someone said, ‘It might help if we had a draw’. So the prize is shared equally between a very young woman starring in her first film and a beautiful performance by an established actress.

y a de Palma le va a encantar.

Por cierto, no me extraña que cierto sector de la prensa y la comunidad fílmica la haya odiado. Ellos querían "una buena historia".

If you are like me and love garlic, you are already too late.
When you're preparing your planting area, just mix the soil with about three inches of organic compost. Subtle gardening themes act upon the subconscious, and merely give the observer a pleasant feeling.

Overall the times was a very exciting newspaper and one which is very insightful into its readers needs.

He spoke slightingly but without bitterness of everything he had written, and I knew his new book
must be very good for him to speak, without bitterness, of the faults
of the past books. Hindi Samachar is entertaining millions of people with incredible reports, events, information and
gossips. But Punjabi news paper has the upper hand because almost population speaks Punjabi,
the official language of Punjab. Once the symphony begins, Paul loses
himself in the sound as he had in the stuff exhibited in the picture gallery.
