L'amour / Phillip Groening / 134 menit / Color / Prancis
Cerita cinta yang tumbuh di jalan antara seorang gadis tuna wisma, bernama Marie dan pemuda PHK, bernama David. Keduanya bertemu di musim gugur, mereka saling mencintai, mencoba bertahan hidup dengan menjual diri.
David and Marie meet for the first time on a cold winter night in Berlin. They're both out on the streets - she's a prostitute and he's been fired from his job at a junkyard for having a broken arm. One evening David ends up at Marie's small, messy flat. In the morning he asks her to stay with him, hoping they can run away together. Even though at first she gets rid of David, Marie thinks it over and decides to go away with him. David, Marie and her dog Kurt set out on a trip marked by cheap hotels with David's attempts to find work, and Marie's occasional turning tricks. The bitter winter cold contrasts with their efforts to find at least some taste of happiness and the kind of home they imagine. The world, however, seems to be against them.

Close To Love
/ Andras Salomon / 99 menit / Color / Hungaria
Kisah tentang percintaan seorang polisi Hungaria, dengan gadis imigran Cina. Karscsi dan Mai Lai. Kehidupan mereka menjadi sangat kompleks ketika Karsci terlibat dalam masalah yang besar yaitu kekasihnya mantan seorang pelacur. Bagaimana akhir dari kisah tersebut? Dalam film ini akan sangat terlihat jelas bagaimana kebudayaan timur dan barat bertemu dan berbenturan satu sama lain terutama dalam lingkup keluarga Karcsi.
Nothing makes a character more intriguing than their silence on screen. They blink, they smile, but you never really know what they are thinking. Close To Love pairs up a country boy and a mysterious Chinese woman in a relationship that looks pointless to everyone but the two lovers.
Director Andras Salamon freshens the country boy in the city premise and ends up with a unique film delivering grins and gazes. The film opens with a young man traveling to the city to chase after his dream of being, of all things, a policeman. After a harrowing driving test, Karcsi makes the cut for the squad but his co-workers aren't quite sure about his backwater behavior. And after seeing the mentality of the policemen, Karcsi isn't so sure about their way of dealing with things. But all this is put aside when a young Chinese girl enters his life. The two don't know each other's language and there seems to be little reason for Karcsi to pursue her, but he's in love and sticks with his feelings despite what his friends think about this little 'tramp.' Sometimes erotic and touching, their relationship depends on head nods and small drawings, the exact opposite of the 'finish each other's sentences' Romeo and Juliet tripe.
Close To Love keeps the pace up with excellent side characters and never tries to bury the audience in its motives, instead being concerned with telling a good story about a strange relationship. Tie this all up with an above-par Euro-tech soundtrack, and you've got yourself a festival treat.
