Mapping unusual cinematic terrain

Fuori concorso

Les fausses confidences, by Luc Bondy

Share:

Little big events that take unusual cinematic routes. The protagonists of the Fuori concorso section offer hours of immersion in intense emotions. Emotions born of true stories narrated by such able writers as Antonio Scurati; observations and accounts of those we are more accustomed to appreciating on the other side of the camera, like Valeria Bruni Tedeschi; the unleashing of heart-rending testimonies in a powerful first film, such as that of Laura Viezzoli.
