Knoflikari (Czech Republic) by Director Petr Zelenka

If you’ve always thought of Czech films as being downright weird and impossible to follow, then go and see Buttoners and surprise yourself. Sure, it’s pretty offbeat and surreal, but with its hilarious dialogue and visual jokes, combined with the way it all fits together so neatly, Buttoners is actually very easy to watch.

Koirankynnen Leikkaaja (Finland) by Director Markku Pölönen

The basic story is simple. The main character is Mertsi, an idealist, who even went to war as a volunteer and returned crippled.

L’Uomo in Pui’ (Italy) by Director Paolo Sorrentino

Naples in the 80’s. Two men with the same name, Antonio Pisapia, are famous and successful: one is a pop singer, the other a soccer player in a Major League team. They have nothing in common except the name and a destiny of failure and disillusion, when their professional and personal life suddenly collapse. At this point they meet only once by chance…the finale is intriguing and unexpected, proving the ability of the young director who is currently considered Italy’s most promising author.

Liever verliefd (The Nethrelands) by Director Pim van Hoeve
