Double Radio Review: Le Prénom + 90 Minutes

I got lucky and sat through two press-screenings on Monday!

Le Prénom: A French film full of Amelie-style randomness and absurdity, but with a nice core of engaging human interactions. Set mostly at a dinner party between five friends, the tension escalates steadily throughout the evening, beginning with one of them wanting to name their new-born Adolf.

90 Minutes: This Norwegian film consists of three independent stories edited together to form a study on men who do violence to women. Not all of the stories have the same level of impact, and I think it depends on how much violence you are used to in films and how cynical you are. Be warned: it’s not for the faint of heart.

Both films run off with solid dice rolls of four. Follow the links to read and listen to the reviews at Radio Revolt!

About filmroller

I'm primarily a history student, but my love of movies made me write my master thesis on historical films. This meant I read more film theory books than history, so I decided I wanted to keep writing about movies in my spare time.
