IndieWire picks ‘Lore’ as one of their top 5 films to see at the Locarno Film Festival

Yesterday the 65th Annual Locarno Film Festival in Switzerland kicked off  and to help movie goers prepare for the eleven day festival‘s Eric Kohn picked  the “5 Movies To Watch at the 2012 Locarno Film Festival”. Among the list is Cate Shortland’s Lore, check it out:

Fresh from its well-received premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, director Cate Shortland’s follow-up to 2004’s “Somersault” is an adaptation of Rachel Seiffert’s 2003 novel “The Dark Room,” which follows a group of German characters whose stories intersect as they struggle to comprehend their uncomfortably close connection to the Holocaust. More specifically, it revolves around the conflicted daughter (newbie Saskia Rosendahl) of a Nazi official fleeing wartime destruction with her relatives. Set for a North American premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival next month followed by a release by Music Box Films, the lavish period piece features German dialogue, but it also reflects Australia’s thriving film scene — it boasts cinematography by Adam Arkapaw, who recently photographed the acclaimed Australian dramas “The Hunter” and “Animal Kingdom.” Early reports suggest an intense, solemn experience made real by gripping performances and the fundamental moral conflict that drives them.
