A sneak preview of the Mumbai Film Festival line-up reveals heavy hitters, silent films and Italian classics
A few reasons to attend this year’s edition of the Mumbai Film Festival (MFF): Michael Haneke’s Amour; David Cronenberg’s Cosmopolis; Ken Loach’s The Angels’ Share; Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the Southern Wild; Franz Osten’s A Throw of Dice; Luchino Visconti’s The Leopard; and Sergio Leone’s Once Upon a Time in America.
The 14th edition of MFF, which will run from 18-25 October, includes heavy-hitters from the world’s leading festivals, Indian silent classics and an overview of Italian cinema. Amour, about a husband caring for his dementia-affected wife, won the Palme d’Or, the top prize at the Cannes film festival. Also from Cannes are British film-maker Loach’s working class-set comedy The Angels’ Share and Cosmopolis, an adaptation of the Don DeLillo novel of the same name, starring Twilight pin-up Robert Pattinson.
