Germany’s largest summer film festival is taking place for the 26th time, in Munich, from June 20 - 28, 2008. 237 films from 41 countries are shown on 15 screens – all German premieres.
I watched two movies last night. Surveillance by Jennifer Lynch and Small Gods by
Surveillance is the story about two FBI agents who track a serial killer with the help of three of his would-be victims - all of whom have wildly different stories to tell. Watch the trailer here at YouTube.
Jennifer Lynch and Julia Ormond were both present and they seem to be very nice. Jennifer Lynch thanked the audience for coming (despite a soccer game and a film award celebration). She warned us, that the movie would be pretty "wacky" and that she was curious to see our reactions. Julia Ormond asked the audience to refrain from throwing stuff at them. :)
I did enjoy the movie. Unfortunately I couldn´t stay and listen to J. Lynch and J. Ormond answering the audiences´ questions, as I had tickets for another movie too.
The second movie Small Gods is told in flash backs. Elena tries to explain to her lawyer what has happened to her since she went missing from a hospital where she was being treated for the wounds caused by the car accident that killed her little boy.
