6/17-19: Everyone Else, New Oliveira Film, Close-up & More!

06/15/10  |  Posted by Cinematheque  |  Posted in Cinematheque

German break-up drama EVERYONE ELSE is the opposite of a date movie! Maren Ade's new German movie EVERYONE ELSE is one of the all-time great break-up movies. It chronicles how a young German couple's love affair unravels during a Sardinian summer vacation. Chris, an architect around the age of 30, gripes that his greatness is going unrecognized, while his girlfriend Gitti, a rock music publicist, tries to cheer him up. But encounters with Chris' family and with another couple on holiday deepen the fault lines in their troubled relationship. Can it be saved? This 2009 New York Film Festival selection is one of the major -- and most acclaimed -- international films of the year, as you can see from its 92% "fresh" rating on rottentomatoes.com . Don't miss its Cleveland debut Thursday or Saturday. Joao Cesar Monteiro's "John of God" trilogy concludes with GOD'S WEDDING In GOD'S WEDDING (1999), the final part of João César Monteiro's "João de Deus (John of God) Trilogy," Monteiro's Keatonesque alter ego João receives a suitcase full of cash from a celestial messenger. He proceeds to spend the money on women and the good life, and even bets a friend that he can woo his girlfriend away from him. This drolly funny Portuguese movie continues our series "Perverse Poet," which now runs through July 2 with the addition of Monteiro's 1982 movie "Silvestre." "God's Wedding" is undistributed in the U.S. so don't miss this rare chance to see it in a 35mm print from Portugal on Friday night only. Special admission is $12, Cinematheque members and CIA students & staff $8. Portugal's Manoel de Oliveira, now 101, returns with ECCENTRICITIES OF A BLONDE-HAIRED GIRL ECCENTRICITIES OF A BLONDE-HAIRED GIRL is a new film from Portugal's seemingly immortal master filmmaker Manoel de Oliveira (now 101 and still going strong; he had a brand new movie at Cannes this year). Oliveira was the subject of a major retrospective at both the Cinematheque and the Cleveland Museum of Art in 2008, and we still have two copies of Randal Johnson's 2008 book about him on sale at the box office. (Our $15 price is cheaper than Amazon's.) One of 2009's most acclaimed movies, "Eccentricities..." is a beguiling miniature about a young bookkeeper who immediately falls in love with a beautiful blond woman he spots in a window across the way. Determined to meet and marry her, he soon discovers that the course of true love never did run smooth? Like "God's Wedding" (above), "Eccentricities..." is undistributed on film in the U.S., so it should not be missed this Friday or Saturday when its brief U.S. theatrical tour stops at the Cinematheque. Special admission is $10, Cinematheque members and CIA students & staff $7. Watch New York Film Festival program director Richard Pena preview the movie (which was showcased in the festival's 2009 edition) in this short video. Kiarostami's Iranian masterpiece CLOSE-UP returns in new 35mm color print Abbas Kiarostami's 1990 movie CLOSE-UP is one of the major works of the Iranian New Wave-and arguably Kiarostami's masterpiece. The film recreates a notorious true case in which an unemployed Iranian movie nut posed as another famous Iranian film director, Mohsen Makhmalbaf, and convinced a middle-class Tehran family that he was going to make a movie with them. The imposter eventually was arrested and tried for fraud. Kiarostami captures the story's real-life participants in documentary footage of the actual trial. He also convinces them to act in staged reenactments of the pre-trial particulars. Even the real Mohsen Makhmalbaf makes an appearance! Don't miss a new 35mm color print of this modern classic on Thursday or Saturday. In fact, print this email and present it at the box office and see "Close-Up" for only $6 ($5 if you're a Cinematheque member). It's our Deal of the Week. You also might be amused by this 7-min. 1996 short film by Nanni Moretti, "The Opening Night of "Close-Up'," which captures the frustrations of an Italian movie theatre owner (Moretti) who opens this small Iranian gem against a slew of Hollywood blockbusters. Believe us, we feel his pain... July - August film schedule now online!
