TIFF 2006 - #11 | Half Moon

Today I finally ‘inaugurated’ my TIFF viewing with “Half Moon”… The film was beautiful… Not just the screenplay, but also the set design, the costumes, the music… The acting of each and every one of the actors and actresses was stunning…The Kurdish director, Bahman Ghobadi, who was also present at the theatre today once again proved his great ability in movie direction… In his introductory comments, he insisted that “Half Moon” is not trying to make a political statement, but is an underground reality…

I won’t make anymore comments, but just recommend that you see it yourself, either in its final TIFF screening on Sept. 16 at the Varsity Cinema or later on DVD…

More to come...
