Stories From The Chestnut Woods Zgodbe iz kostanjevih gozdov
Stories from the Chestnut Woods is a dreamlike parable about “life and death in a forgotten, desolate place”. At the last Festival of Slovenian Film, the feature-length debut by a young Slovenian director took home a record eleven Vesna Awards, among which were the ones for best feature film and best direction, as well the Audience Award.
The Traitor Il Traditore
It’s the early eighties; Sicilian mafia bosses are fighting a bitter war for control over the heroin trade. From his hideout in Brazil, mafioso Tommaso Buscetta observes as his relatives at home are killed, knowing he might well be next. When he gets arrested by the Brazilian police and sent back to Italy, Buscetta makes a decision that will forever change the course of Mafia history: he decides to meet with judge Giovanni Falcone and break the vow he gave to the cosa nostra.
The film—referred to by its director as a “comedy with no clowns, a tragedy without the antagonists”—is a wonderfully unpredictable family-themed tragicomedy about the conflicts that inevitably arise between the haves and the have-nots. A recipient of the Golden Palm at the most recent Cannes festival and a critics’ favourite of the year.
