Movie Night: Tangerines
Sent to mailinglist subscribers on July 8, 2015
Join Fresno Filmworks this Friday night, July 10, for The Estonian nomination for both the Academy Award and a Golden Globe for best foreign film. “Tangerines” builds tense psychological drama against the backdrop the Soviet Union’s dissolution when two soldiers from opposite sides of a bloody conflict end up stuck on a Georgian tangerine farm together. Show times are 5:30 and 8:30 p.m. The film is not rated. Run time is 89 minutes. A discussion with Michelle DenBeste, interim dean of the College of Social Sciences at Fresno State, will follow the 5:30 screening.
FROM THE CRITICS
Stephen Farber of The Hollywood Reporter said that ” Although the subject of civil war within the former Soviet countries has been tackled in other movies, this retelling is one of the most concise and affecting.”
