Göteborg Filmfestival

Yeeha! I came to Gothenburg yesterday to pay a visit to the film festival, and I love every part of being here! (except for the traditionally pouring rain) My beloved soul mate Jonas Holmberg did a great job at the opening ceremony and he’s such a great looking dude in tuxedo. The opening film Yarden by Måns Månsson was interesting and beautiful (Ita Zbroniec-Zajt is a genius), but didn’t really reach my expectations. The following party was a great success, beautifully arranged and with a great amount of friends and colleagues to share wine and thoughts with. This morning I had to get up early in order to see Dawn, a latvian film about a kolkhoz village in the Soviet Unition. By far the most inspiring film I’ve seen for a long time. Now it’s time for a q&a with Bruno Delbonnel, the great cinematographer behind Amélie from Montmarte, but also Alexandr Sokurov‘s Faust and his new Francofonia, which I can’t wait to see. I LOVE Sokurov and the cinematography in Faust in absolutely mind-blowing. Tonight there’s a dinner with him, arranged by FSF, and guess what – I’m invited! Let’s see if Bruno speak russian…
