In Louis Hartlooper and Springhaver you can see the best foreign language films with English subtitles at our monthly screenings: Language no problem. This means that people who don’t understand Dutch can now also enjoy a French, Dutch, Italian or Danish production. The selection for this programme is not random. We will always choose a film we feel is a must-see for everyone. For example, in October we showed the opening picture of the Netherlands Film Festival for 2018: Niemand in de stad (No one in the city) by Michiel van Erp. In November we showed a big favourite from the Cannes Film Festival: Girl by Lukas Dhont. As always films from Britain or the US will still be shown in their original language with Dutch subtitles.
LNP November: Dolor y gloria
Dolor y gloria tells of a series of reencounters experienced by Salvador Mallo, a film director in his physical decline. Some of them in the flesh, others remembered: his childhood in the 60s, when he emigrated with his parents to a village in Valencia in search of prosperity, the first desire, his first adult love in the Madrid of the 80s, the pain of the breakup of that love while it was still alive and intense, writing as the only therapy to forget the unforgettable, the early discovery of cinema, and the void, the infinite void that creates the incapacity to keep on making films. Dolor y gloria talks about creation, about the difficulty of separating it from one's own life and about the passions that give it meaning and hope. In recovering his past, Salvador finds the urgent need to recount it, and in that need he also finds his salvation.
Meet the Park Family: the picture of aspirational wealth. And the Kim Family, rich in street smarts but not much else. Be it chance or fate, these two houses are brought together and the Kims sense a golden opportunity. Masterminded by college-aged Ki-woo, the Kim children expediently install themselves as tutor and art therapist, to the Parks. Soon, a symbiotic relationship forms between the two families. The Kims provide "indispensable" luxury services while the Parks obliviously bankroll their entire household. When a parasitic interloper threatens the Kims' newfound comfort, a savage, underhanded battle for dominance breaks out, threatening to destroy the fragile ecosystem between the Kims and the Parks. Director Bong Joon Ho brings his work home to Korea in this pitch-black modern fairytale. Winner of the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival 2019.
