German Film Festival – The Audition Movie Review

Anna is a bit of an enigma as she has the pieces of modern-day life that most would be satisfied with. A home, job, understanding husband, and precocious young child. Her centre is just slightly askew. Her job as a violin teacher at a Conservatoire gives her little confidence or pleasure.   //   When she comes into contact with a young student Alexander (Ilja Monti) she sees things in him that others don’t. Her obsession comes to full fruition and in so doing, she ...

Rosa’s Wedding Movie Review – Moro Spanish Film Festival

Rosa tries to do it all. Full-time work (and then some) as a seamstress, keeping a wayward daughter on the up and up, even looking after the neighbour’s plants while they are away on the vacations she never seems to have. She is helpful to all who ask and this has led her to be bled dry of energy and joy.   //   One day she decides to put herself first and disappears from her normal day to day. Slowly all her dependents realise her absence and are unbelieving when ...

Wishlist Movie Review – Moro Spanish Film Festival

Eva (María León) and Carmen (Victoria Abril) meet during chemotherapy and become friends while the elder Carmen helps Eva with her hard-earned wisdom. They make bucket lists, grab their gal pal Mar (Silvia Alonso), and hit the road. As they check off the items on the lists their lives become transformed.   //   The film could have easily descended into predictable cliche if it weren’t for the ever-present chemistry between the three lady leads. Even the male charac...
