Berlinale Day 8
I am sorry to report I did not attend any press conferences today. I was a bit behind on work and writing. The films today were:
On The Beach at Night Alone in Competition from Korea, a story centering on woman in an dire emotional state of mind trying to recover.
Joaquim in Competition from Brazil and Portugal
I heard Joaquim was not a bad film.
The Scholondorff film The Return to Montauk has been panned. Some in the press pool said it was “AWFUL!”
Leading Golden Bear Contenders The Other Side of Hope and On Body and Soul from Hungary is a dark horse in the race.
Luxury watch maker Glashutte was this yeas sponsor for the Golden Bear Lounge. The brand unveiled a new collection of timepieces Sixties Iconic Square, colorful, retro, and stylish. I think the watches are about getting noticed but in an elegant fun way! I will have more later.
