A still from the film “Parasites”. Directed by Bong Joon Ho. 2019 year
The eighth film by Quentin Tarantino, Ryan Johnson’s witty detective and last year’s triumphs, South Korean “Parasites”. We are studying Moschino’s plans for the next week.
Last week for hire Anna Melikyan’s Fairy, Roy Andersson’s About Infinity and other films were released. Read about the films that will be added to the cinema poster this week in this mos.ru article.
Moschino cinemas returned to work after a long break. The cinema halls have smart seating arrangements to maintain social distance between the audience. When buying a ticket, the system blocks seats around and makes sure that the hall is not more than 50 percent full. You can buy tickets on the siteand in a special mobile application “Moschino”.
Thirty, directed by Simona Kostova (2019). Germany, 18+
A group of friends get together on Friday night for some fun – one of them turns 30. The party turns into a daily run through all the trendy bars and clubs in Berlin’s Neukölln district. The heroes will not only dance and have fun (after all, they are no longer children), but also talk about the most important things: about love, life and growing up. This day will become a turning point in the life of each of the heroes: a guy and a girl who no longer live together; another guy who jokes all the time; a girl who is afraid of old age; and one more – although she, in fact, came to that holiday by accident.
Simone Kostova herself was a little over 30 at the time of working on the film. She is a graduate of the Berlin Academy of Film and Television, where the directors of the “Berlin School” came from – Christian Petzold, Angela Chanelek, Thomas Arslan. If desired, in Kostova’s debut (Thirty is her first full-length film), one can hear their characteristic intonations: like older comrades, she takes the position of an impartial contemplator towards her characters.
The premiere took place in January last year at the Rotterdam Film Festival.
Knives Out, directed by Ryan Johnson (2019). USA, 16+
Successful detective writer Harlan Trombie is the head of a large and not very pleasant family. The writer is found dead after celebrating his 85th birthday. At first glance, this is suicide, but it’s not that simple. Think of classic detective novels in which every character has a motive. Detective Benoit Blanc (Daniel Craig) is about to unravel the tangled tangle. As an assistant, he takes a young nurse of the late Martha, who, it seems, is not at all happy with the role of Dr. Watson. Is she involved in this story?
Ryan Johnson, director of Time Loop, Brick, and one of the Star Wars episodes, shot either an ironic detective or a parody of him. It turned out very witty, funny and unexpected.
“Parasites,” directed by Bong Joon Ho (2019). South Korea, 18+
The Ki Teka (Song Kan-ho) family is on the brink of poverty: a man, his wife, son and daughter live in a dirty basement, catch the neighbor’s Wi-Fi, do simple homework and dream of a better life. One day the heroes are really lucky: the son of Ki Tek gets a job in a wealthy Pak family. Soon, with the help of cunning and even meanness, he drags all his relatives into a huge designer mansion: he suits mom as a cook, dad as a driver, and his sister as an English teacher for his little son Pak. At work, they have to pretend to be strangers, but when the rich leave home, they can relax and feel like masters. How long will this idyll last?
Bong Joon Ho made a big name for himself in 2017, when his film Okja, a comedy about the struggle of animal rights activists and a meat corporation for the life of a giant kind pig, was shown in the main competition of the Cannes Film Festival. The film, in which the main villainess was played by Tilda Swinton, was highly praised by critics. But the real triumph came to the South Korean director two years later, when his “Parasites” won two major awards of the movie season: “Oscar” for best film and “Palme d’Or”.
The Hateful Eight directed by Quentin Tarantino (2015). USA, 18+
America, Wyoming, a few years after the Civil War. A blizzard gathers eight notorious villains in a small inn. Before us are bounty hunters, criminals, an executioner, a new sheriff and other characters in a crazy bloody drama that is about to unfold before our eyes. There seems to be no person here who would not hide his true face and some disgusting secret.
Quentin Tarantino’s Western may not have seen the light of day: in 2014, the script hit the network, and the upset director interrupted filming. But he soon cooled down, came up with a new ending and returned to work. And the pirates who treated Tarantino so ugly apologized.
The roles of villains are brilliantly played by Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Tim Roth, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Jennifer Jason Lee and others. The film won an Oscar for Best Soundtrack by Ennio Morricone.
