CINQ FILMS PRÉSENTÉS AU FESTIVAL DU NOUVEAU CINÉMA SORTENT CETTE SEMAINE DANS LES SALLES MONTRÉALAISESFive films presented at the Festival du nouveau cinema out in theatres in Montreal this week:

-UN ANGE À LA MER (ANGEL AT SEA): a difficult and disturbing subject matter — the psychological abuse of children — is treated with sensitivity and subtlety in this award-winning (Karlovy Vary) first feature.

-LA TETA ASUSTADA: This story of a young maid, spiritually and emotionally adrift in big-city Lima, reveals the shadowy, lasting ramifications of trauma and terror, engendered by political repression, violence and rape. AQCC critics award and interpretation price for actress Magaly Solier at the Festival du nouveau cinema.

-AN EDUCATION: In 1961, just before London starts Swinging, a young woman from the suburbs meets a charming hustler. A tale of unreasonable passion set in a fascinating recreation of the decade that would change the world. Carey Mulligan is extraordinary.

-LES BEAUX GOSSES: Sattouf’s hilarious film on the goofs and gallantries of teens in the new Paris. This first feature from France’s top comic artist is smart and fresh, with a deep affection for everything ridiculous in human relationships.

-TAQWACORE: THE BIRTH OF PUNK ISLAM: After RiP: A Remix Manifesto and Up the Yangtze, a documentary on the new Islamic Punk scene. Muslim youth join the International Rockers of the World! Taqwacore was presented as opening film of the Temps 0 section at the Festival du nouveau cinema.
