Miss Julie – Last 2015 Release

MissJuliePosterPRINT

Miss Julie, starring Jessica Chastain and Colin Farrell, is The Tide Experiment last release this year.

A country estate in Ireland in the 1880s. Over the course of one midsummer night, in an atmosphere of wild revelry and loosened social constraints, Miss Julie (Jessica Chastain) and John (Colin Farrell), her father’s valet, dance and drink, charm and manipulate each other. She, all hauteur longing for abasement; he, polished but coarse – united in mutual loathing and attraction.

By turns seductive and bullying, savage and tender, their intimacy leads to desperate plans and vision of a life together… Unsure if the morning brings hope or hopelessness, Julie and John find their escape in a final act as sublime and horrific as anything in Greek tragedy.

Miss Julie depicts a fierce battle for power and dominance, enacted through a cruel and compulsive game of seduction and repulsion.

  4. Michael Madsen New Documentary ‘The Visit’ on Tide

    500x800

    “This film documents an event that has never taken place – man’s first encounter with intelligent life from space.”

    Earth may not have been visited by aliens, but ever since the invention of radio and television, humans have been sending signals into outer space, announcing their existence to other civilizations, so the question is not ‘what if’ it happens, but rather ‘when’. With unprecedented access to everyone from the Director of the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs to experts from NASA, ISU (International Space University), the SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Institute, and military advisors, the film builds up a chillingly believable scenario of first contact on Earth, beginning with the simplest of questions: Why are you here? How do you think? What do you see in humans that we don’t see in ourselves? Continue reading Michael Madsen New Documentary ‘The Visit’ on Tide

    Basil Da Cunha (Après la Nuit) sur Filmo TV

     

    ATEVERALUZ_AFFICHE_FR_web

    Un lieu se trouve au centre du film de Basil daCunha, Aprés la nuit : le bidonville créole de Reboleira dans la banlieue de Lisbonne. C’est là où réside Sombra qui y vit seul en compagnie d’un iguane. C’est là aussi ou  criblé de dettes, il est contraint à participer à un casse, un casse qui tournera mal bien sûr.

    Basil Da Cunha n’a pas 30 ans, Après la nuit est son premier long métrage, une histoire dans laquelle il sait mêler le réalisme avec des éléments mystiques et mystérieux,  associer la rugosité et la tendresse, relier le rap avec l’accordéon… Des mélanges qui reflètent peut être la double culture de son auteur, à la fois suisse et portugais, qui a grandi à Lausanne et qui vit désormais à Lisbonne. Un début de parcours qui sort donc des sentiers battus, une ode comme le dit lui-même son auteur « à un certain savoir vivre » dans laquelle Pasolini côtoierait Hector Babenco. 

    C’est donc de son  premier film que Basil daCunha est venu s’entretenir avec FilmoTV  en la personne de Laurent Delmas. Il nous a parlé de son expérience de tournage dans un décor pas comme les autres avec des comédiens pas comme les autres, mais aussi de ses projets et de son cinéma en devenir.

    Le cinéma à l’abri du temps (Le Monde)

    02 Avril 2014

    Autour de la chronologie des médias s’est noué un dialogue transatlantique involontaire, au hasard des calendriers médiatiques et institutionnels. Côté Europe, la Cour des comptes française a rendu, mercredi 1er avril, un rapport sur les aides publiques au cinéma et à l’audiovisuel. Côté Amérique, un article du nouveau chroniqueur « techno » du New York Times, Farhad Manjoo, paru le 27 mars.

    En français dans le texte : « Afin de maximiser les perspectives de recettes pour chaque partie prenante au cofinancement d’un film, les conditions d’exposition de l’œuvre sont assujetties au respect de la “chronologie des médias”. »
