If you like dark humor and aren’t a big fan of current politics, you’ll love this movie. The comedy “Blood Oranges” by Jean-Christophe Meurisse received Sunday September 26 “The Golden Amphora”, the grand prize of Toulouse international film festival (Fifigrot).
“At the same time in France, a retired couple in debt tries to win a rock contest, a minister is suspected of tax evasion and a young teenager meets a sexual freak”: this film, with Alexandre Steiger, Christophe Paou, Céline Fuhrer and Denis Podalydès, “defeats the political correctness with blows of Karcher”, according to the organizers.
“Stand up women!” wins “The People’s Amphora”
On the one hand, the spectators have other “Amphora of the people” to “Stand up women!”, “the first ‘parliamentary road-movie’ to meet the women who take care of our children, our sick, our elderly, the fruit of the fruitful meeting between documentary filmmaker Gilles Perret and François Ruffin”. The “ENSAV student amphora” (National Audiovisual School) was awarded a film by Anne-Laure Daffis and Léo Marchand “My neighbors’ neighbors are my neighbors” (find here all the winners of the Grolandais film festival).
