GRASS

HOTEL BY THE RIVER

Better actor in Locarno, and better film, script and actor in Gijón, one of the best films of Hong Sang-soo, a kind of moral tale on the life and the death, through two convergent stories.

JESUS

Hiroshi Okuyama

A film refers to the cinema of Yasujiro Ozu or Hirokazu Koreeda, starring a child facing a major life change. Guaranteed emotion.
