Exodus to Shanghai Moscow International Film Festival

The final and rather resonant chord sounded Romanian-English “Exodus in Shanghai” (section “Russian trace”), wild Kungfu-Action Anthony Hickox, known for his genre hits of the late 80’s / early 90’s (two of the “Wax Museum” “Hellraiser 3”). In the center of the plot – the flight of the Jews from Vienna 38th year in Shanghai by the Chinese Embassy. A fighter like Bruce Lee, a charming blonde, stupid SS as if from a movie of the “TEL”, bloody fight scenes and firefights, the swastika of cocaine tracks, not that I seriously played by actor and constant shouts of “Heil Hitler!” In half with jokes about the Führer reminiscent at once of “Mamma Mia”, “Inglourious Basterds” and “Schindler’s List.” By the way, Hickox, which appears in the final as an agent of Fleming in the closing credits thanks Steven Spielberg. Yes, it can, treshovo and absurd, but it is perfect as a necessary antidote to the overly serious festival pictures. The festival has brought other pleasant discoveries – in particular, the Argentine-French film “Eva does not sleep” with Gael Garcia Bernal and Denis Laban, but more on that next time.
