Una famiglia (2017)

Vincent is fifty, born near Paris; Maria, fifteen years younger, grew up in Ostia. Both cut relationships off with their families, but together they are a couple leading a secluded existence in Rome, an ideal cradle for those who want to live away from prying eyes. Yet, to a more attentive look, scratching the surface of that normal life, reveals a terrible project brought forth by him with shrewd determination and accepted by Maria, due to her unconditional love: A project to help couples who can not have children. Getting to what her instinct tells her to be the last pregnancy, Maria decides it’s time to form a true family. This choice leads to an inevitable consequence: the rebellion to Vincent, the man of his life.

Best Feature Film


Written by Anne Fontaine and Pierre Trividic, the story revolves around Martin Clément, born Marvin Bijou, who ran away from his hometown and his family. He retells his story through a stage play that proves to be a smash hit. But at what price? Interestingly, while the film borrows its central plot from the novel by Edouard Louis (which outlines the childhood and teenage years of a young boy in a village, where he is shunned by the inhabitants and even by his own family when he comes out as a homosexual), it simultaneously takes the story a littler further, as the movie follows the character until the age of 23, whereas the storyline of the book comes to a halt when he starts secondary school. Delving into the topics of stigmatisation just because someone is different and the building of one’s identity, the plot also shows how the character eventually manages to dig himself out of a very distressing situation thanks to his various encounters.

Il contagio (2017)

Marcello, Chiara, Mauro and Simona all live troubled lives in the same building on the outskirts of the city, along with the local ringleader, Carmine. Into the shifting sands of this perennially tragicomic humanity steps an eminently bourgeois professor and writer, Walter, who’s been conducting an affair with Marcello. While Marcello is a former bodybuilder unsure of his own sexuality, it is only Mauro, a coldly ambitious drug dealer, who seems to want things to change, as corruption and the powers behind it arrive in the ‘hood’.

At the beginning of the 20th century, on the island of La Réunion, five adolescents of good families enamoured with the occult, commit a savage crime. A Dutch Captain takes them in charge for a repressive cruise on a haunted, dilapidated sailboat. Exhausted by the Captain’s methods, the five boys prepare to mutiny. Their port of call is a supernatural island with luxuriant vegetation and bewitching powers that holds a disturbing secret. The main characters are gender-bending persons, who accept the idea of becoming “else” as a form of erotism.
