    TIFF ‘09 | Radu Jude: "This film started in a way five years ago..."

    In Radu Jude's "The Happiest Girl in the World," "Delia Fratila (Andreea Bosneag) is not happy. Forced to repeat the same gleeful scene in a cheesy commercial for the best part of a smouldering summer day, she grows ever glummer as the temperature rises. Her parents have already found a buyer for the trophy car and are waiting in the wings to cash in. Breaks between takes lead to increasing friction as they try to pressure Delia into authorizing the deal. Never before has parental guidance sounded so much like a sales pitch. As Delia tries to hold on to her prize, even the camera starts crowding out the 'lucky' winner. Combining rich irony wi...

    TIFF ‘09 | Rachel Ward: "Always looking, always hopeful and totally thrilled"

    "Based on a 1982 novel by Newton Thornburg," Rachel Ward's "Beautiful Kate" "begins with forty-year-old Ned Kendall (Ben Mendelsohn). At the behest of his dutiful sister Sally (Rachel Griffiths), Ned reluctantly returns to the isolated family homestead after a twenty-year absence because his cantankerous and bullying father, Bruce (Bryan Brown), is dying. Ned has dragged his twenty-one-year-old fiancée, Toni (Maeve Dermody), along to act as a lipstick-coated suit of armour and agent provocateur against his father.

    TIFF ‘09 | Katarzyna Ros: "It's my style, coming straight from my heart"

    In Katarzyna Ros' "Mall Girls," "Alicja (Anna Karczmarczyk) is a newcomer and an outsider, an ordinary, conservatively attired teenaged girl who quickly finds herself mocked by the sexualized, hip group of schoolgirls who essentially walk the walk and talk the talk, both at school and in the streets. Crude, belligerent, cocky and fearless, this group of fourteen-year-olds soon starts to make Alicja's life a living hell. Next to them, Alicja looks plain and commonplace, but it is not long before she is slowly invited into the group, undergoing a tough initiation along the way. She soon discovers why her new friends look so trendy and stylish: ...
