Hello, my name is Francesca. Live near the Westgarth but rarely go as I find it very mainstream, prefer range at Nova and ACMI. Love discussing film with others.
Arthouse. I love cinema which expands and deepens my world. I dislike the cliched and predictable. Some films I have loved in recent years : Pina in 3D, Another Green World, The Secret Life of the Hedgehog, The Lives of Others, Romulus my Father. Right now, the William Kentridge films" @ ACMI - animated charcoal drawings - utterly surprising. I would love to revisit some of the great directors of the 70s, particularly German and Italian
Struggling to find one of interest. Saw Le Havre yesterday - visually beautiful but somewhat predictable.
So sorry I did not get to the cafe for the discussion - the street I was in headed me back into the Dandenong Rd relentless flood of traffic and I ended up going on an unwanted tour of Albert Park - it was like a dream, no control at all. Next time I hope , as I love the discussion afterwards
