The European Film Festival has ended; wonderful efforts. I've seen most of the movies and got all the feedbacks about the rest, in my opinion, the Oscar goes to…
#1: ZOZO: a terrific Lebanese / Swedish movie by the director Josef Fares (based on his own experiences). When your life shifts from fairly good to hell… Zozo (Imad Creidi) is growing up in Beirut during civil war. On the eve of their emigration to Sweden, his entire family is cruelly dispatched by Lebanese militia, leaving Zozo to make the journey alone! Unbelievable emotions, so artistic and dramatic work. check it out.
#2: Fauteuils d'orchestre (Orchestra Seats)
Jessica arrives in Paris where she finds a job as a waitress in bar next to a theater. She will meet a pianist, a famous actress and a great art collector, and begin to have her own dreams of fame and love! Wonderful story under the Paris sky, very alive and romantic. check it out.
I also would recommend: Everybody Famous, Dog Nail Clipper, Wallace & Gromit, and Shouf Shouf Habibi.
The most horrible movie was The Extra Man!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! They actually showed that "Extra" movie! Horrible video quality, horrible story, horrible cast, horrible everything! People started to leave after 20 minutes.
