Goethe présente Willow Springs (STA)
Three women living in blissful isolation in the California desert find their communal life threatened by the arrival of a strange man. Willow Springs shares with Ingmar Bergman’s Persona (1966) and Robert Altman’s 3 Women (1977) a kind of surreal, dreamlike humour, and similarly hints at fractured or interchangeable female identities.
Werner Schroeter
 
Goethe présente L\'énigme de Kaspar Hauser (STF)
Grand Prix Spécial du Jury, Cannes 1975 FIPRESCI Prize and the Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Cannes 1975

Based on a true story, a mysterious young man is found in the main city square of Nurnberg in 1828. Kept apart during his youth from all human contact, he is given shelter by a well-meaning couple who attempt to teach him language and manners. His origins, and why he was abandoned and subsequently killed, have never been found.

“Perhaps the most famous of his (Herzog’s) romantic allegories…An astonishing performance, if performance it is, by Bruno S, (…) Kaspar Hauser is one of the most fascinating of films. – Derek Malcolm, The Guardian
Werner Herzog
 
Capharnaüm (STA)
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Cannes Film Festival, Nadine Labaki’s CAPERNAUM (“Chaos”) tells the story of Zain, a Lebanese boy who sues his parents for the “crime” of giving him life. CAPERNAUM follows Zain as he journeys from gutsy, streetwise child to hardened 12-yearold “adult”: fleeing his abusive, negligent parents, surviving through his wits on the streets, taking care of Ethiopian refugee Rahil and her baby son Yonas, being jailed for a violent crime, and finally, seeking justice in a courtroom.

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah Churchill (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne's ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail Masham (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen's companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfill her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.

Climax (STA)
France Sangria Massacre! You’ve been told – not that you didn’t already know. Gaspar Noé’s latest delivers the celluloid meltdown of the year. In fact, it’s hard to imagine anything this year that’s more brilliantly deranged. Over in Cannes, they’re still recovering! Imagine Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom on the dancefloor and France as a monstrous, self-cannibalizing entity. A rapacious film neck-deep in allegory that starts with a wild party and ends in hell. Virtuosic and radical, Climax is a study in what happens when sleeping dogs wake up.

After five years in prison, she emerges to find her world has transformed. Her former mafia associates have moved into legitimate businesses, while Bin has found another moll.
