Cine Europa 17, Day 2

Cine Europa runs from September 30 till October 5, 2014 at the Cinematheque Iloilo, and it is free of charge. The FDCP Cinematheque is located at the B&C Square Bldg., Solis St., Iloilo City (near BPI Iznart, East West Bank Iznart, and Landbank Iznart). [hit the jump to continue]

This Slovakian movie, by Jakub Kroner, takes you into a realm of opposites, where a man must battle his demons in a bid for normality. Love proves that sometimes love alone does not make the world go round.

The word itself; "lóve" doesn't necessarily have the same meaning in Slovak as it does in English. It can actually refers to money. Aptly, this romantic drama intermingles both, as we meet Mato (Michal Nemtuda), living a carefree life; he and his childhood friend Tomás (Jakub Gogál) steal cars for a car repair shop. Mato's life changes radically when he meets and falls in love with Veronika (Kristína Svarinská).

Refraining from revealing the shady truth about his life, Mato dreams of changing his ways because of her influences. The first cracks begin to appear in Mato and Tomás lengthy frienship. Mato wants to break away from his current way of living and he and Tomáš agree to one last score. Planning to rob a gas station, the friends become involved in a tragic accident leading to Mato's unfortunate involvement in a murder. (1:30 PM today at the FDCP Cinematheque)

Jagten (The Hunt)
This Danish drama film is directed by Thomas Vinterberg, and stars Mads Mikkelsen who stars in various movies such as the villain in "Casino Royale" but he is best known as the title character in the popular TV series "Hannibal"

"Jagten" was screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and competed at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival where Mikkelsen won the Best Actor Award for his role. It also won the 2013 Nordic Council Film Prize. The film was selected as the Danish entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 86th Academy Awards, making the final nomination. It was nominated in the same category at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards.

The story centers on a teacher living a lonely life, all the while struggling over his son's custody. His life slowly gets better as he finds love and receives good news from his son, but his new luck is about to be brutally shattered by an innocent little lie. (3:30 PM today at the FDCP Cinematheque)

Tuskevar (Thorn Castle)
This family-friendly Hungarian film, directed by György Balogh, is based on the book of famous Hungarian writer, István Fekete (who mainly wrote titles about animals, like Vuk, Lutra) this is a must-see for all crazed internet kids and addicted gamers who often forget that there's reality outside the screen. The story is about two urban boys, who spend a summer at the beautiful and wondrous countryside with an old field keeper, and there, they gradually change their point of view about their civilized life, and fall love with Nature itself. (5:30 PM today at the FDCP Cinematheque)
