A film that uses every scene to tell a story and a film that uses every scene to bore the viewer to tears. A tale of contrasts, live from TIFF!
Both tasty cured pork fat, generous, curious documentaries and a moment of pure cinema magic, made for a good day at Translyvania International Film Festival.
The food in Translyvania has been uniformly excellent. The films at TIFF, spanning Austria, Greece and Nicaragua, have yet to match its quality.
I spent all day travelling to Romania — but somehow my first day at Transylvania International Film Festival turned out to be all about Nord-Rhein-Westphalia.
