For each On Tour film, Film Fest Gent provides a Wide Angle every month, in which we delve into the film, its director and themes (and more) by means of texts in various forms by various authors. (Texts are exclusively available in Dutch)

Poster May December

May December l 16.01

In Todd Haynes' dark and deliciously funny melodrama May December, Julianne Moore and Natalie Portman play a mysterious cat-and-mouse game of seduction, naivety and performance.

You don't need to teach American filmmaker Todd Haynes (Far from Heaven, Carol) anything about directing actors, creating mood and staging meta-melodramas. May December, a deliciously crafted psychodrama that looks as cerebral as it is seductive, makes that delightfully clear. "It's the complexity, the moral gray areas, that are so interesting," says Elizabeth (Natalie Portman), an actress looking to take her career to the next level. In this darker cousin of Carol, Haynes lets Elizabeth in on the life of Gracie (Julianne Moore), twenty years after she ended up in jail for seducing then-thirteen-year-old Joe as a thirty-something. After all, the actress is going to portray Gracie in a film about the scandal. Gracie and Joe are now married, but is their marriage based on abuse or romance? With as much pleasure as control, Haynes stages a flirtatious game between dysfunctional individuals, as if Ingmar Bergman is discovering his campy side

L'Empire l 20.02

Bruno Dumont, een van de enfants terribles van de Franse cinema, is na het satirische France terug met een heerlijk absurdistische sciencefictionfilm dat enkel kan ontsproten zijn aan het brein van de regisseur van La vie de Jésus, P'tit Quinquin en Ma Loute.

After media satire France, Bruno Dumont, one of the enfants terribles of French cinema, is back with a with an absurdist science-fiction film that can only have sprung from the mind of the director of La vie de Jésus, P'tit Quinquin and Ma Loute.

That director Bruno Dumont is not keen on colouring within the lines of genres and "good taste" has long since ceased to be something striking. But a bizarre, apocalyptic "space & earth opera" about extraterrestrial knights who make a rural coastal village in Northern France their battleground, no, that was impossible to predict. Somewhere between his previous films Ma Loute and La vie de Jésus and somewhere between heaven and earth, Dumont offers us his caustic, cruel and crazy vision of Star Wars, including lightsabers.

Dream Scenario poster

Dream Scenario l 19.03

Sick of Myself director Kristoffer Borgli gives Nicolas Cage a dream role in his ingenious fantasy horror comedy.

The role of his dreams: that's one way to describe the character of Paul Matthews, portrayed by Nicolas Cage. He plays a balding, bearded biology professor who would easily win the title of Mr. Average. But one day, something strange happens: he appears in one of his daughters' dreams. Then in an ex's dream. Until he even starts featuring in the dreams of millions of people who have never even heard of the man. Dream Scenario is the refreshingly creative English-language debut of Norwegian director Kristoffer Borgli (Sick of Myself). And after this film, it's entirely clear: if you're looking for comedies with a twist, Borgli is the right person to turn to.
