‘Pacified‘ and ‘The trench infinite‘ they are the great achievers of the 67th edition of the Festival of San Sebastián. The film is brazilian, made by the american Paxton Winters with the support of Fox as a distributor and a heavy weight such as Darren Aronofsky in the production, has risen with the precious Concha de Oro the best film, but also with two further awards: best actor (Bukassa Kabengele) and best picture (Laura Merians).
Three awards that sound excessive for this drama that takes us into the sordid world of the favelas to tell the story of a few characters to the limit, faced to the poverty, despair and death. It is a film of raw and effective, with hook, but that doesn’t really add anything that we haven’t seen before. Of course, the jury (chaired this year by Neil Jordan) has another opinion.
The Shell of Silver to the best direction has been for Aitor Arregi, Jon Garaño and Jose Mari Goenaga, for the staging of ‘The trench’ infinite, award-winning, also to the best screenplay, written by Goenaga, along with Luiso Berdejo. Two awards just for one of the most anxiously awaited films of the exhibition, an ambitious proposal, a strong and intense that, without doubt, give a lot to talk about when it debuts in theaters.
on the other hand, the Silver Shell for best actress has two owners: the have received the Spanish Greta Fernandez, for ‘The daughter of a thief‘, and the German Nina Hoss, for ‘The Audition‘.
