How time flies when your having fun and yesterday we recorded Episode 131 of Outside Centre Film Podcast. Exploring world cinema with September choices dealing with Icelandic grief, Slovakian kitchen sink absurdity that wants to be a Greek Tragedy. Finally Russian Post war drama that was the country’s Oscar entry last year.
Theo Neumann hosts and as you’ll hear at Outside Centre we don’t hold anything back!
First we discuss A White White Day, directed by Hlynur Pálmason, who’s previous film Winter Brothers was the winner of Film of The Year 2018 on the podcast.
A White White Day is about the grief of an Icelandic man who lost his wife to a car accident.
Next we review Cook, Fuck, Kill from Slovakia, a surrealist Slovakian kitchen sink- come- Greek tragedy regarding a man who enjoys to do all of the above with his own family and beyond.
We conclude with Beanpole which was a Foreign Language Oscar semi finalist, directed by Kantemir Balagov.
It’s a Russian drama that principally follows two women, Iya and Masha as they try to find their way in post War Leningrad.
