Film Fridays: Grab Bag
– Bergman is the boss over at the Cinematheque, as the theatre reveals a handful of new 35mm Bergman prints. Through a Glass Darkly and Winter Light are tonight’s offerings. Through a Glass Darkly tells the story of a dysfunctional family who have secluded themselves to a remote Baltic island. According to the New Yorker, it was “possibly the most beautiful (of Bergman’s films) in its setting and the most heartbreaking in its theme.”
– The Festival of Italian Cinema is on. Roundtrip, the story of “a love-sick Turin man who decides to leave his humdrum life and his city” only to return a few days later looks good to us. It screens Saturday at the Carlton.
–Weekend shorts from the NFB at Camera Bar, under the cute banner of ‘seven to see from the NFB.’
– And if you can’t get enough of that shlubby Giametti (‘He was robbed!’ you cry to your friends on a regular basis), you could always see that small indie flick Cinderella Man. Playing everywhere.
