A big feast coming for film lovers

DURING the 14th Shanghai International Film Festival from June 11 to 19, local movie buffs can watch more than 200 Chinese and foreign films in 24 cinemas across town, the organizer said yesterday. This year's festival will present a retro show of films made by celebrated Polish director Krzysztof Kieslowski, Danish director Bille August and Chinese director Zheng Junli. Other exhibition films include award-winning productions from Japan, Canada, Germany, Italy, France and China. Film enthusiasts will be able to see some latest big-budget films such as "Pina," a 3D documentary by Wim Wenders on the late German dancer and choreographer Pina Bausch; Danny Boyle's biographical adventure film "127 Hours;" Coen Brothers' "True Grit;" and the Danish drama "In a Better World," which won the 2011 Academy Award for Best Foreign Film. In addition to screening much anticipated Chinese films like "If You Are the One 2" and "Aftershock," the festival will also show low-budget productions by young talented directors, including "Kangding Love Song" and "33 Postcards." Ticket sale will start early next month at prices between 40 yuan and 60 yuan. All of the films will be shown in their original language with both English and Chinese subtitles.
