New Directors | New Films
Premiering this Week | January 19

This week we have less Portuguese premieres, contrasting to last week. So our highlight goes to two films: Silence, the so awaited Martin Scorses’s film, and Fool Moon, who was in Competition at Cannes Film Festival.


Silence, Martin Scorsese (Mexico, Thailand, USA)

Synopsis: Martin Scorsese's SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) - at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden. The celebrated director's 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo's 1966 acclaimed novel to life will be in theaters this Christmas.




Fool Moon, Grégoire Leprince-Ringuet (France)

Synopsis: Ondine and Paul have loved each other. When she leaves him, he swears not to love again.

To prove this to himself, he pursues the beautiful Camille, whom he intends to seduce and abandon. But Camille puts a spell on Paul whom she desires for herself alone.

And, while falling under Camille’s charms, Paul has to deal with the memory of his past love.
