A Jewish-American blood crazed militia killing Nazis or a dark colored depiction of mysterious and gruesome events in a small north German village just before World War 1. In March Nordica’s Movie Night will show two new movies, both released in 2009, both depicting the fascism in Germany during the 20th century, but in a complete opposite manner.
The first movie of March will be the German movie “The White Ribbon” directed by the Austrian director Michael Haneke (also instructor of “The Piano Teacher”). This dark, disturbing movie goes much further than just “Germany before WWI”, it goes down deeper, searching out origins of evil, common for all sort of terror regimes that be the Nazism of Germany or among the inhabitants in small village.
In the second movie of March we will go opposite, from bleak German pessimism to fast-paced, stark colored Hollywood drama. “Inglorious Bastards” is directed by Quentin Tarantino, who have jumped the air of remorse and horror of most WWII movies and made a true “bad guys shutdown bad guys” movie.
Both movies have a duration of 2 and a half hour – so we will start at 5 pm beginning with an short introduction, at 6.30 we will have 30 minutes dinner break (Nordica have an excellent cafe) and 8.30 pm we will have an hour of discussion.
The subtitles will be in English.
