Osaka festival announces lineup

Films include 'Taxidermia,' 'Cashback'

TOKYO — The Osaka European Film Festival has announced the line-up for its 14th edition, which will unspool Nov. 10-Dec. 7 at eight venues in Japan’s second-largest city.

Among the highlights are the European New Films Premieres section of 11 European pics making their Japan or regional premieres, including Gyorgy Palfi’s “Taxidermia,” Bettina Oberli’s “Late Bloomers,” Sean Ellis’ “Cashback,” Rachid Bouchareb’s “Days of Glory” and Mirjana Karanoviae’s “Das fraulein.”

The fest will also feature a section on Swedish docs and the first three pics of Alexander Sokurov’s planned tetralogy on 20th-century rulers: “Moloch” (Hitler), “Taurus” (Lenin), and “The Sun” (Emperor Hirohito). One unusual event is CM Festival 2007, an all-night screening of 500 TV commercials from 2006.

Despite Osaka’s 2.6 million population, local exhibs screen few European pics, making the fest a must-see for fans of Euro cinema.
