Ambiancé is, so far, the only movie that Swedish filmmaker Anders Weberg has to his name. But given that the documentary has a run time of seven hundred and twenty hours long, or thirty days, I can see why he’s had no time for any other film projects.
The film’s trailer clocks in at about seven hours, so if you have some spare time this weekend, or are going to be on a long flight, you might be able to look at that first.
The trailer for A Beautiful Planet, a documentary that offers us the perspective of astronauts aboard the International Space Station. Narrated by Jennifer Lawrence, and only screening at IMAX cinemas, which probably makes a lot of sense.
Louder Than Bombs, trailer, is a family drama by Norwegian director Joachim Trier, starring Isabelle Huppert, David Strathairn, and Jesse Eisenberg, that opens locally on 1 April, 2016. The story appears to centre around Eisenberg’s character, Jonah, who returns to the family home for the first time in several years, who left following his mother’s death.
Loving Vincent is an animated film that explores the death of Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh, who died in 1890. Numerous oil paintings, produced by more than one hundred artists, will be displayed at a rate of twelve frames per second to bring the story to motion.
Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, Helen McCrory, and Douglas Booth, are among actors who will feature in the film. I can’t find a release date as yet, but if the trailer is anything to go by, it’ll be worth looking out for.
The Daughter, directed by Australian filmmaker Simon Stone, is another title I’m trying not to read too much about before I see it.
Like 45 Years, which I saw the other day, and am still reeling from, The Daughter is a family drama, that appears to see emotions boil over, after events from the past resurface, when a long absent person returns to his hometown.
The trailer looks stunning, though I’m hoping it’s not a case of the trailer being better than the film it is promoting.
Colonia, directed by German filmmaker Florian Gallenberger, sees a young woman (Emma Watson), join an oppressive religious sect in a bid to free her boyfriend (Daniel Brühl), who has fallen into its clutches.
Having infiltrated the group, escape, going by the trailer, appears to be a simple matter of negotiating labyrinth tunnels, and a small army of zealous enforcers.
The trailer for 45 Years, starring Charlotte Rampling, and Tom Courtenay, a story about a couple preparing to celebrate forty-five years of marriage, when they receive some unexpected, and shocking news, that goes along the lines of “they’ve found her”.
I’m trying not to read too much about this film ahead of its opening today, lest I stumble upon what this revelation is.
If the trailer is anything to go by, this looks to be a no holds barred look behind the scenes into the operation of one of the world’s top dining establishments, when it opens locally on Thursday, not to mention a veritable treat for the foodies among us.
