Photographed beautifully (also in the fog) by award winning Romanian cinematographer Oleg Mutu (see ‘Beyond the Hills’ later this season), this film means ‘he must now take his place as a leading figure in world cinema’ - Philip French, Observer.
‘In the Fog’ is Sergei Loznitsa’s 2nd film to be nominated for the Cannes Palme D’Or, but the first, ‘My Joy’ has not been released here yet. If we like this one, maybe we can get the first later...
