Film Screening: An Uncertain Border (Un Confine Incerto)

January 22 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

An Uncertain Border Italian Poster
 
Richi (Moisé Curia) is on the road with a little girl (Anna Malfatti) in a camper van through southern Germany. They have a good time with each other, dress up, dance and laugh a lot. He is a seed salesman, she his little doll. An unusual couple, but happy? When the two stop off at a restaurant, the landlord (Heio von Stetten) becomes sceptical. Something is not right here! What’s more, the girl speaks a very rare language: Ladin. Meanwhile, in Rome, police inspector Milia Demetz (Cosmina Stratan) is investigating cyberspace and is hot on the heels of a paedophile network. When she discovers a girl in one of the anonymous videos, she is soon certain: the lasciviously photographed child is Magdalena Senoner, who disappeared in Tyrol at the age of five. But who is behind the camera? When the landlord forwards the footage from his surveillance camera to the police, all the threads come together. Can Milia save little Magdalena?
 
Refreshments will be provided. Parking will be available in the GEC parking deck during the screenings.

Reviews
 
“Un film pazzesco sulla pedofilia che ti entra sotto la pelle. Il mix di thriller psicologico criminale e la storia di un outsider sviluppa un potere così incredibile che ti spazza via.”

“Ein Wahnsinns-Film über Pädophilie, der unter die Haut geht. Die Mischung aus Psycho-Krimi und Außenseiter-Geschichte entwickelt eine so unfassbare Power, dass einen das umhaut.”

ZDF – “FILMGORILLAS”

“Coraggioso, sensibile e complesso!”

“Mutig, sensibel und vielschichtig!”

SWR – “KUNSCHT!”

“Reale in modo impressionante.”

“Beklemmend real.”

ARD – “TITEL THESEN TEMPERAMENTE”
“Dramma brillante e preciso.”

“Brillantes wie präzises Drama.”

BR –“KINOKINO”

»La regista Isabella Sandri rende tangibili gli abissi senza dover mostrare immagini scioccanti. Sebbene abbia deciso consapevolmente di utilizzare il formato del lungometraggio, si può sentire la sua sensibilità documentaristica. «

»Regisseurin Isabella Sandri macht die Abgründe eindringlich spürbar, ohne dafür reißerische Bilder zeigen zu müssen. Obwohl sie sich bewusst für das Spielfilm-Format entschieden hat, spürt man ihre dokumentarische Sensibilität.«

RBB – RUNDFUNK BERLIN-BRANDENBURG

“In termini di cinema ed estetica, l’impressionante e malinconico thriller drammatico di Isabella Sandri è una vera risorsa: le immagini saranno ricordate a lungo!”

“Cineastisch und filmästhetisch ist Isabella Sandris beindruckendes, melancholisches Thrillerdrama ein echter Gewinn: Die Bilder bleiben nachhaltig in Erinnerung!”

PROGRAMMKINO

“Film altrettanto emozionante, commovente e sensibile su un argomento importante. In tal modo, Isabella Sandri riesce a bilanciare il racconto di storie sull’attraversamento dei confini senza violare i confini.”

“Gleichermaßen spannender, bewegender und einfühlsamer Film über ein wichtiges Thema. Dabei gelingt Isabella Sandri der Balanceakt, von Grenzgängen zu erzählen, ohne Grenzen zu verletzen.”

SPIELFILM
“L’avvincente film drammatico di Isabella Sandri ripercorre il terribile destino di una bambina.
Autentico in modo impressionante. ”

»Isabella Sandris packendes Filmdrama zeichnet ein furchtbares Kinderschicksal nach. Beklemmend-authentisch.”

BADISCHE ZEITUNG
“…un’affascinante miscela di realistico psicothriller e sensibile ballata da outsider, che nella sua potenza poetica ricorda “Lolita” di Kubrick o “La Strada” di Fellini. Il cast del film è eccellente con la vincitrice del premio Cannes Cosmina Stratan (“Beyond the Hills”), la giovane attrice Anna Malfatti nel suo primo ruolo cinematografico e Moisé Curia.”

“…eine faszinierende Mischung aus realitätsnahem Psychokrimi und feinfühliger Außenseiterballade, die in ihrer poetischen Kraft an Kubricks “Lolita” oder Fellinis “La Strada” erinnert. Der Film ist großartig besetzt mit Cannes-Preisträgerin Cosmina Stratan (“Jenseits der Hügel”), Jungdarstellerin Anna Malfatti in ihrer ersten Kinorolle und Moisé Curia.”

SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG
“”Nicht dein Maedchen” è anche un thriller. Ma la messa in scena tratta la tensione dell’indagine con delicatezza, cautela, quasi disinvoltura, senza inseguimenti o violenze.”

“„Nicht dein Mädchen“ ist auch ein Krimi. Aber die Spannung der Ermittlungen behandelt die Inszenierung sanft, zurückhaltend, fast beiläufig, ohne Verfolgungsjagden oder Gewalt.”

https://www.filmdienst.de/film/details/594052/nicht-dein-madchen#kritik” rel=”noopener” target=”_blank”>FILMDIENST
““Nicht dein Maedchen” non è un ‘piatto leggero’, ma un contributo importante e sensibile sul tema della pedofilia”

“„Nicht dein Mädchen“ ist keine leichte Kost, aber ein wichtiger und sensibler Beitrag zum Thema Kindesmissbrauch.”
