‘Rivers’ run in San Sebastian

Murder thriller adds suspense to competition lineup

MADRID — Mathieu Kassovitz’s fourth pic, “The Crimson Rivers,” has been added to the list of official competition titles at the 48th San Sebastian Intl. Film Festival, which runs Sept. 21-30.

“The Crimson Rivers” is a murder thriller set in the Swiss Alps and starring Jean Reno and Vincent Cassel.

Two other titles — Kevin Liddy’s “Country,” a family drama set in a small Irish village, and Iranian director Reza Parsa’s “Before the Storm,” which portrays the relationship between an Iranian taxi driver and a lonely boy in a small Swedish town — complete the competition lineup.

Brit director Stephen Frears will preside over this year’s official jury. Other members are Chilean musician-composer Jorge Arriagada, Italian actress Andrea Ferreol, U.S. director Jim McBride, Spanish actress Angela Molina, Spanish cinematographer Juan Ruiz-Anchia and French director Stephane Tchal Gadjeff.

San Sebastian has also announced the lineup of the New Directors jury: Leon Cakoff, director of the Sao Paolo fest; Spanish film book editor Valeria Ciompi; Italian critic Fabio Ferzetti; screenwriter Lourdes Iglesias; U.S. film teacher Steven Ricci; film historian Christian Viviani; and Variety critic Deborah Young.
