Thanks, J. Robert! This is very useful info to have while scheduling.

girish said...

Yes, thank you for that, J. Robert!

J Robert said...

My pleasure, Dan and Girish. That's the sort of thing I track, and it's easy to share.

This weekend was my weekend of Toronto research. :)

Darren said...

I had a slow weekend, too, and spent several hours working through all of the films that were announced last week. Does anyone know anything about these Contemporary World Cinema titles? I can't find anything.

To Love Someone
Unfinished Sky
Unfinished Stories

It's been ridiculously hot in Knoxville lately, with the heat index expected to reach 105 again this week, but Saturday night, when I took the trash out around midnight, the humidity and temp had dropped just enough that there was a hint of fall in the air. I'm going to be absolutely useless at work for the next two weeks.

Jeremy Heilman said...

I don't think any of those films have played anywhere yet, so no reviews...

Slingshot Trailer

Unfinished Sky is a remake of the Dutch film The Polish Bride (which was well-liked & nominated for a Golden Globe about 10 years ago). The official site is here.

The official site (with synopsis) of Unfinished Stories is here.

The site for To Love Someone doesn't reveal much more than the TIFF press release, but it confirms that the film is indeed premiering at Toronto.

Over here it was described as "quietly intense", for what that's worth.

Darren said...

Thanks, Jeremy. I'm totally ambivalent about that Slingshot trailer.

Maya said...

Very useful date, indeed, J. Robert. I've highlighted all those on my printout list (save those that will show up in 2008; much too long to wait). Thanks!

Maya said..., "data" not "date"
