Day 6 of TIFF
I’ve seen two films at the festival so far: Children of Sarajevo on Friday, and Amour on Saturday. Amour was hands-down the better of the two. It was beautifully made, and unbelievably sad. I don’t know if I ever want to see it again, but I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to see it at the festival. Michael Haneke was there to speak about the film and answer a few questions after the screening which was unexpected and awesome. This is the first film of his that I’ve seen and I’ll definitely be adding his other films to my long, long list.
Now for today. First up is Lore at 4:30, and after that is The Iceman at 10pm. I’m extremely excited for both. I’m purposely not reading reviews of any of the films I’m going to see before I see them so that I’m not influenced by anyone else’s opinion. I’m going solely on the strength of the capsules written by the festival’s programmers.
