Some excellent films I saw in Vienna

While showing The Dinner Table to an Austrian (among others) audience was a blast, even more exciting was seeing some great shorts from around the globe.

A few highlights:

IL CAPO by Yuri Ancarani

A mesmerizing, beautifully shot aesthetic/character study of the foreman of a marble quarry in Italy. If you loved to watch big construction equipment moving as a kid (or as an adult) this will be poetry.

ZUCHT UND ORDNUNG (Law and Order) by Jan Soldat

A touching, hilarious look at the romantic and sex life of an elderly, sadomasochistic couple from Berlin. Shot with just the right amount of respectful distance from its subjects. (NB: some explicit imagery in this one)
