BUTTERFLIES

BUTTERFLIES

Cemal, Kenan, and Suzi are siblings who have grown apart since leaving Hasanlar, the tiny village where they grew up, and going their separate ways. When an unexpected call from their estranged father demands they return to the village immediately, Cemal, the eldest, is tasked with reuniting the family and convincing his brother and sister to take a road trip back to the places and memories they have been working so hard to forget. As they try to piece their dysfunctional family back together and confront their shared past, they’ll have to contend with each other’s peculiarities and get to know one another all over again, even as the strangest elements of all await them in the village.

ALICE T.

Radu Muntean

One of the most outstanding directors of the new wave of Romanian cinema films here an intense moral drama that explores the affective shock between a mother and her adopted daughter.

AMANDA

Mikhaël Hers

Vincent Lacoste offers one of the best performances of his career with this emotional drama about mourning and France hit by violence, far from all sentimentality. An essential film.

BELMONTE

Federico Veiroj

The most refined film of the Uruguayan director, endowed with a strange and hallucinated humor, capable of being misanthropic and at the same time humanist. A film about masculinities in crisis with a great authorial duel.
