Mia Madre

ONE WEEK ONLY

In this touching and highly personal new film from the Italian master filmmaker Nanni Moretti, a harried filmmaker (Margherita Buy, A Five Star Life; We Have a Pope) tries to juggle the demands of her latest movie with a personal life in shambles. The star of her film, a bombastic American actor (John Turturro) imported for the production, presents nothing but headaches and her crew is close to mutiny. Away from the shoot, Margherita tries to hold her life together as her mother's illness progresses and her teenage daughter grows ever more distant. A comedy-drama imbued with a quiet sense of grief, Moretti illuminates the poignancy of human imperfection that is revealed when real life and art intersect.

Macadam Stories (Asphalte)

TAMWORTH FILM SOCIETY | 11 & 14 DECEMBER | ALL WELCOME

Director and author Samuel Benchetrit brings much of his autobiographical book Asphalt Chronicles to the screen as Macadam Stories, a series of interconnected vignettes set in a public housing complex on the outskirts of Paris. With a focus on six characters, we meet the penny-pinching loaner Sternkowitz (Gustave Kervern from In The Courtyard – Festival 2015), who forges an unlikely relationship with a night nurse (Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi). In another thread, inquisitive adolescent Charly (the director’s son Jules Benchetrit) and Jeanne (Isabelle Huppert), an ageing movie star, form a bond that changes them both for the better. In the final instalment, American astronaut, John McKenzie (Michael Pitt) accidentally lands on the apartment of a migrant, Mrs Hamida, and the pair communicate through fractured French while NASA busily stages a cover up. Deadpan and often droll, the film recalls the entertaining style of Jim Jarmusch, with an undercurrent of quirky and satisfying sight gags.
