Discover Elia Suleiman’s influences through his list of 50 favorite films from before 2005 : www.lacinetek.com/director-list/elia-suleiman-

This month, director Elia Suleiman shares with us his tragi-comic cinephilia, where characters in search of their identity wander through strange universes: from cold Nordic humor to British nonsense, from period fables (Japanese, French or Italian) to the stylized worlds of modernity (from Antonioni to Claire Denis).

LaCinetek gathers the recommendations of directors from all over the world to offer them on VOD (in France, Germany, Belgium, Luxembourg and Austria).
