MMiFF JURY AWARD
Aloys (2016 / Drama|Fantasy / Switzerland / 91min) by Tobias Nölle with Georg Friedrich, Tilde von Overbeck and Kamil Krejcí.
The jury awards a film that depicts a very singular universe, with a strong autoral voice.
„It is an existential portrait performed by an astonishing main cast and an extraordinary dialogue between sound and images. A story of survival that utterly becomes a love story, build in a thin line between reality and fantasy – a story that finds humour and tenderness out of solitude.“
O juri atribui o prémio ao filme que melhor conseguiu criar o universo singular do cinema de autor.
„Um retrato existencial inteligente, feito de personagens bem construídas e de um diálogo conseguido entre imagens e som. Uma estória de encontro e sobrevivência, que também se torna numa estória de amor, construída numa ténue linha que separa realidade e ficção – uma estória que encontra humor e candura na solidão.“
