Filmfest – The white meadows & At world’s end

October 1st, 2009

Watched two movies today at the Hamburg Filmfest. The first one was “The white meadows”, a movie from Iran (Keshtzar haye sepid). Told in metaphors  and allegories, this movie tells the tale of a man who rows across a big salt lake to collect the tears of people in sorrow. Very poetic pictures and story, but also a very black and dark satire and criticism of superstition and religion. Read more in this review. Watch some excerpts here.

The second movie was yet another danish movie: “At world’s end”, written by Anders Thomas Jensen who also wrote Adam’s Apples, Dänische Delikatessen etc. The movie was fun to watch, not as remarkable as Adam’s Apples, but still very entertaining.
