Love is Folly 2008

Love is Folly 2008

29 August 2008 - 4 September 2008
Our biggest festivals are in Sofia, but for 16 years Varna's Love is Folly has been holding the line. From 29 August to 4 September the festival will gather spectators in the Festival and Congress Center.

The year of Russia in Bulgaria will be marked off at Love is Folly as well. Nikita Mihalkov's 12 will open the festival. Stanislav Govoruhin is coming to Varna with his Actress, which is icluded in the festival program too.

France marks the highest score - 4 new releases. The first is Un Conte de Noel, which had a  Golden Palm nomination. The other three are Changement D'Adresse, Toi & Moi and Le Premier Venu. The festival will be closed by Roman de Gare.

Nowadays on the crust of the new wave in Polish cinema are the fresh modern stories of Andrzej Saramonowicz. He will not be able to come to Varna, but sends two of his most famous films - Testosterone and Ladies.

The dosage of Bulgarian films at Love is Folly is small, but still exists. It is relied mainly on Andrei Slabakov and his Hindemit. The experimental The Hamlet Adventure will be also given a chance, together with the old classics The Villager with the Bicycle and Bonne Chance, Inspector!, with which Georgi Rusev and Velko Kanev will celebrate their 80th and 60th birthday respectively.
