CHARLEY’S AUNT

Charley’s Aunt, based on the play of the same name by Brandon Thomas and starring a great Peter Alexander, is the classic musical comedy of errors, but nonetheless genuine and capable of making one smile, although not proving to be hilarious.

PEBBLES

In Pebbles, Lukas Stepanik is particularly sharp in his staging of a past that, in reality, never died, while at the same time making a careful and never ordinary analysis of the society and world in which we live. As part of the retrospective Keine Angst by the Filmarchiv Austria.

MALINA

Werner Schroeter has made Malina an incredibly topical feature film, attacking not only patriarchy, but also the entire society, which is so insidiously hypocritical. A stylistically sophisticated feature film that pays tribute to all the extraordinary women who worked on it. At the K3 Film Festival 2023, as a tribute to Libgart Schwarz and Ingeborg Bachmann.

IN THE CIRCLE

Beautiful shots, dominated by the white of the snow, which does not give that classic feeling of infinite space – disorienting and distorted – but on the contrary is pleasant, perhaps because it is interspersed with the colourful jackets of the protagonists. Perhaps, the meaning of In the circle is simply this: in the end, we all move in circles, constantly searching for something. At the K3 Film Festival 2023.
