“A feast not only in name and not only on the screen. A session during which all the senses work. A traditionally directed and virtuosically performed love story spiced with shots of erotic cooking. There are moments, but in the court kitchen, where dissolving, clarifying, stuffing and marinating takes place. Benoit Magimel and Juliette Binoche give excellent performances, and Trần Anh Hùng maintains consummate proportions in a costume movie focused more on the culinary process than anything else. The praise of life’s beauty and reconciliation with the cruelty of nature permeate the on-screen procession of meals and dishes. Świdnica restaurateurs must ensure that their kitchens remain open long into the night on October 27. The audience will leave the screening at ŚCC well after 10 p.m. and say: life is beautiful, let’s go eat something delicious!”
The film will be shown on October 27 at 8:15 p.m. It will be accompanied by a wine tasting from the Silesian Vineyard, as well as events at the Bolko Club – Concert Kwit/квіт + DJ set: Pincoya.
“Two years have passed since the Polish festival premiere of this film, a year and a half since the nationwide cinema premiere, and I still don’t have a driving license. But if “Drive” with Ryan Gosling did not convince me, maybe a screening at the theater in Świdnica will finally be an effective impulse? In fact, I recommend “Drive My Car” to everyone not because of the wonderful shots from the journey in the iconic Saab model, but because of the story full of layers and twists, in which the accents were masterfully placed. About modern communication and eternal transgressions. Ryusuke Hamaguchi’s great journey is “Sex, Lies and Theater” on the one hand and a positive response to the appeal from the title song of “Substitutes”. In “Drive My Car” there’s something near every damn corner.”
The screening will take place on Sunday, October 29, at 12:30.
“Last year I came to Spektrum with my daughter, this year I will be with my son. The world seen from a child’s perspective continues to fascinate me, as it probably does for every parent. However, there are situations in which we do not have the opportunity to even notice that we are being watched by the youngest. These are most often dramatic events, family reunions, collective, occasional, and rushed situations. In the film “Tótem”, Lila Aviles shows adults in such a moment. The audience looks from the perspective of a child, but they understand and hear more than the main character followed by the camera, which will cause many emotions during the opening evening of Spektrum.”
“Tótem” is the opening film of this year’s edition of the Spektrum Festival. The gala opening the event is scheduled for October 24 at 7 p.m.
