(2012, dir. Marius Holst, w/ Stellan Skarsgard, Benjamin Helstad)
Based on true events, young boys are stripped of their individuality, personal conviction, cognitive thought and at times their very humanity when sent to Bastoy; a correctional facility isolated on an island some 46 miles out of Oslo. It is at best a high security prison. Shot with attention to greyscale, the cold will permeate your bones from the very screen, even as tensions boil amongst the boys. TJFILM INFO (Astor rating)
(2011, dir. Valerie Donzeli, w/ Valerie Donzelli, Jeremie Alkaim)
Declaration Of War will start at approximately 9:56pm, and finish at approximately 11:42pm.
Donzelli and Elkaim are the writers and stars of this drama about coming to terms with a terminally ill child. Their story, based on their real life experiences, is one of love, passion, endless optimism and constant heartache. A little confused stylistically, Declaration of War contemplates the ends of the human spirit. TJFILM INFO (Astor rating)
