Diplomacy

Directed by Volker Schlöndorff

Starring André Dussollier, Niels Arestrup, Burghart Klaußner

French and German with English subtitles

1 hr 24 mins, rated NR

 

 

As the Allies march toward Paris in the summer of 1944, Hitler gives orders that the French capital should not fall into enemy hands, or if it does, then ‘only as a field of rubble’. The person assigned to carry out this barbaric act is Wehrmacht commander of Greater Paris, General Dietrich von Choltitz, who already has mines planted on the Eiffel Tower, in the Louvre and Notre Dame and on the bridges over the Seine. Nothing should be left as a reminder of the city’s former glory. However, at dawn on 25 August, Swedish Consul General Raoul Nordling steals into German headquarters through a secret underground tunnel and there starts a tension-filled game of cat and mouse as Nordling tries to persuade Choltitz to abandon his plan .

 

In this riveting adaptation of the stage success by Cyril Gély, the great Volker Schlöndorff (Academy Award winner THE TIN DRUM) has created a psychologically elaborate game of political manners between two highly contrasting characters. While Choltitz entrenches himself behind his duty to obey unquestioningly all military orders, Nordling tries everything he can to appeal to reason and humanity and prevent the senseless destruction of the beloved ‘City of Light’.

 

 

 

“What Gély lacks in historical fidelity he gains in dramatic interplay between men who held power very differently.” -Serena Donadoni (Village Voice)

 

“The principal suspense in this fascinating movie is generated by the polite, and then not so polite, ferocity of the arguments between the two men.” -David Denby (New Yorker)

 

“It’s Arestrup who really steals the show, turning von Cholitz into a man who bears the weight of several thousand soldiers, not to mention an entire civilian population, and who suffers under that burden until making a final, eleventh hour decision.” -Jordan Mintzer (Hollywood Reporter)

Low Down

Directed by Jeff Preiss

Starring John Hawkes, Elle Fanning, Glenn Close

English

1 hr 54 mins, rated R

 

 

Based on the memoir by Amy-Jo Albany, LOW DOWN is a compassionate, tender look at the complex relationship between Amy-Jo (Elle Fanning) and her father Joe (John Hawkes), a man torn between his musical ambition, his devotion to his teenage daughter, and his suffocating heroin addiction. Set against a sensuously textured 1970s Hollywood, the film beautifully evokes a colorful, seedy world of struggling musicians, artists, and vagabonds, in which Joe and Amy-Jo strive to live the lives they want against seemingly insurmountable odds.

 

 

“Low Down is a knockout, a candid picture of much of jazz, and one more step for a master actor.”-David Thomspon (The New Republic)

 

“A lovely film that brings great emotion and a dead-on feeling for time, place and recaptured mood to a story that is as universal as it is personal.” -Kenneth Turan (Los Angeles Times)

 

“‘Low Down’ serves as a terrific example of how to evoke a given period on a tight budget.” -Michael Phillips (Chicago Tribune)

 

“Low Down is rich in vivid characters.” -David Edelstein (New York Magazine)
