Saturday I went directly from my two festival films to a wedding in the St. Andrews club overlooking Toronto Harbour and, incidentally, the Roy Thompson Hall gala. I think I was having a better time which means these reviews are short.
La Tourneuse de Pages was a deliberately slow-moving thriller which avoids the obvious choices. The acting is wonderful and very French. Four stars out of five.
A Grave-Keeper’s Tale was interesting, entertaining and an example of how artistic expression is possible in India’s regional cinema markets. For different reasons this one is also four stars out of five.
