The dark side – Aggression, madness, vampires and zombies

Filmek/Oliver Sherman6Canadian movie ‘Oliver Sherman’ is screened as part of the EYE ON FILMS project. A veteran tries to recover from his war memories and start a new life by asking for help from his comrade living now in quiet happiness.

The subtle drama about the disillusioned soldier smoothly transforms into a psychological thriller. The trailer shows the suspense of the story. The film is screened on April 16th, Saturday at 18:00 at KINO.
Filmek/Elátkozott örökség2Those who fancy the typical English black humour are well advised to go and see The Drummond Will. Two brothers arrive at their father’s funeral just to come across a huge fortune in the house. However, they soon find out that they are not the only ones to be after the money. The emergence of absurdist figures and situations promise an entertaining movie; the black and white, exciting visuals are combined with a comic story (see the trailer). Screenings: April 13th, Wednesday at KINO at 20:00 and April 15th, Friday at 18:00 at Toldi. After the screening Q&A with the producer, Tobias Tobbell.

Filmek/Csodagyerek3You can see American movie Wonder Boy at Toldi at 19:00 which analyses a trendy issue these days: that of the self-appointed superheroes. However, the style evokes more of a psycho-thriller than a comedy: Sean as a child witnesses his mother’s violent death and decides to do himself justice when he grows up.  After the screening the producer, Teresa Sabatine is our guest. The movie is screened on April 12th, today at 19:00 at Toldi. (trailer)

Filmek/Árnyékban1In the Shadows is a rather restrained German crime movie. Don’t expect personal stories or great action scenes: the film concentrates more on the technical details of being an outlaw, which lets a lot of tension arise. No ups and downs and climaxes: we feel the suspense from the first minute to the last. As earlier films of director Thomas Arslan, this movie was also rewarded at the Berlinale. Screening is on 14th, Thursday at 18:15 at Uránia and on 16th, Saturday at 20:30 at Örökmozgó. (trailer)

Filmek/Néma csöndA Korean film Memories of Murder (2003) inspired The Silence from Germany. An abandoned bicycle is found by the police near the fields where a horrible child murder took place 23 years before. The investigator of the case flings himself into the research again, convinced that the two incidents are interrelated. The quiet peace of the neighbourhood is stirred all of a sudden. The director and photographer of the movie have watched several westerns as case studies for this production, which resulted in a similar visual world. Screenings are on April 14th, Thursday at 16:00 at Uránia. (trailer)

Filmek/Vámpírok3Vampires are coming from Belgium. Samson, living the boring life of a vampire family’s son, breaks an important vampire rule: he starts an affair with the wife of his boss. The story of the family expelled to Quebec is rendered even more absurd by documentary-style elements. The movie that skilfully parodies the vampire genre is screened together with an introduction film. (trailer)
The unliving Swedish short paraphrases ’zombie movies’ where tamed zombies are used as cheap labour force. The films can be seen on 16th, Saturday at 20:00 at Toldi.
