For the 11th edition of Transilvania IFF, No Limit comes with a line-up that will leave the audience breathless. From the 16 bizarre works of cinema selected by Mihai Chirilov, one of the highlights will surely be Steve McQueen’s Shame. Michael Fassbender plays here the role of Brandon, a sex-addict from Big Apple’s high society, who is beginning to question his state of mind, after his emotional instable sister (Carey Mulligan) moves in his apartment.
A world premiere will be the screening of Zero Killed directed by Michael Kosakowski, a bold movie that shows how we all have our hidden fantasies about committing murder. Another guilty pleasure will be exposed in Whore’s Glory, Michael Glawogger’s triptych about prostitution in Thailand, Mexico and Bangladesh.
A lot of adrenaline is promised by Yorgos Lanthimos’s Alps, the odd story about four people whose job is to take the place of deceased persons, at family request. Even more uncanny things will happen in Angelina Nikonova’s Twilight Portrait, where a nurse is transforming into a creature of the night after she was raped by three policemen and in Porfirio directed by Alejandro Landes, where a man in a wheelchair dreams he can fly. Romanian actress Monica Bîrlădeanu is starring in Diaz (directed by Daniele Vicari), movie inspired by a story that made the front page in Italian newspapers and Matthew Mishory’s Joshua Tree, 1951 who is making a portrait of American icon James Dean, bringing light on his early years as a actor.
