THE FULLNESS OF THE WORLD: World Cinema at the Art Theater Co-op
Starting March 8, we're going to be hosting a week of foreign films. I know most of you have not heard of these films, but don't let that be a turn-off. These are some of the *most interesting* films out right now, and each one can introduce you to a whole new world of film. From new historical dramas from acclaimed directors (Royal Affair) to bizarro freak-out meditations on film (Holy Motors), lost-in-translation comedies (In Another Country), and breathtaking dramas (Sister) this week represents the incredible imagination and diversity in cinema outside US borders.

Please come out & support our efforts to support foreign filmmakers and art-house films!

\\\\\

A Royal Affair (R) (132 mins) (Denmark) 2013 Oscar Nominee, Best Foreign-Language Film: A grand period drama with a lusty, beating heart, A Royal Affair brings a sharp, contemporary edge to this notorious true story of illicit love and political intrigue. It's the true story of an ordinary man who wins the queen's heart and starts a revolution. Centering on the intriguing love triangle between the ever more insane Danish King Christian VII, the royal physician who is a man of enlightenment and idealism Struensee and the young but strong Queen Caroline Mathilda, A Royal Affair is the gripping tale of brave idealists who risk everything in their pursuit of freedom for their people.

"With its sumptuous settings, urgent romance and intellectual substance, A Royal Affair is a mind-opener crossed with a bodice-ripper." -Joe Morgenstern, The Wall Street Journal

Sister (NR) (97 mins) (Switzerland) Ursula Meier, Switzerland's most celebrated young filmmaker, was awarded the Silver Bear at this year's Berlinale for her stunning, moving, and ultimately shattering drama, Sister. Simon (Kacey Mottet Klein) lives with his older sister (Léa Seydoux, Farewell, My Queen) in a housing complex below a luxury ski resort. With his sister drifting in and out of jobs and relationships, twelve year old Simon must provide for the two of them, stealing ski equipment from rich tourists to resell to the local kids. But when Simon partners with a crooked British seasonal worker, he begins to lose his boundaries, affecting his relationship with his sister and plummeting into dangerous territory.

"Beautifully observed... the official Swiss entry in the Oscar competition for foreign language film... haunting and sad. And absolutely worth seeing." -Steven Rea, The Philadelphia Inquirer

Holy Motors (R) (116 mins) (France) Leos Carax's Holy Motors is a gift: one of the most ambitious feature films of the last decade. Joyous, hilarious, and positively otherworldly are but a few ways to describe its liquid "exquisite corpse" narrative; nothing can properly prepare you for the experience of Holy Motors, because nothing you have ever seen has moved or felt quite like it. In the performance(s) of a lifetime, regular Carax collaborator Denis Lavant is an amorphous Actor who, over the course of one day, carries out a mystery mission to inhabit a wide variety of chameleonic public roles: a bag lady, an assassin, a freakazoid sewer dweller, a somber lover and much more. Driven around Paris in a chauffeured limo by the legendary Edith Scob (Eyes Without A Face), Lavant physically commits to each drop-of-a-hat character swap so thoroughly, and engages you so immediately that it's truly impossible for anyone to predict what comes next, as Carax giddily cranks this cinematic Rubik's Cube. Essential 21st-century viewing, and the most emotional, triptastic experience of the year.

"An electrifying, confounding, what-the-hell-just-happened exercise in unbounded imagination, unapologetic theatricality, bravura acting and head-over-heels movie-love." -Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

In Another Country (NR) (89 mins) (South Korea) Art-house superstar Isabelle Huppert teams with prolific auteur Hong Sang Soo for this deceptively mischievous comic roundelay. Huppert stars as three French tourists named Anne, whose visits to the same South Korean beach resort in quick succession create a cinematic rhyming game that is quintessential Hong. Pleasantly loose yet beguiling enough to chew on for days, In Another Country "takes Hong's signature style and concerns to a new level." (LA Weekly)

"This characteristically eccentric take on tourism and miscommunication is funny in the moment and profound after the fact." -Eric Kohn, Indiewire
