    LOCARNO

    "Fortuna" is a demanding little film that doesn't really reveal itself tenfolds until the slow-burn becomes absolutely irrelevant. But there's a tragic composition of humane feelings that are slid with delicacy and complexity that promises greater things from Germinal Roaux in the future.

    What Doesn't Kill Us

    ★★★

    LOCARNO

    What Doesn't Kill Us skillfully traces why people need to be heard more than being alone and how they need connections more than they need relationships. It's a wise film that occasionally succumbs to sentimentality but never frets away from its central theme that says hope is just around the corner. If not on the couch of a psychiatrist then maybe in a coffee shop with transparent glasses and wooden benches. All you gotta do is look in and then - look out.

    ★★★★

    "There's nothing wrong with my life. I should be happy. But there's this sadness and I don't know where it comes from."

    A lovely, melancholic stroll down the love that coulda, shoulda, woulda. If you are on a strict - one romantic movie a year diet, make sure that this is the one.

    Here's my haiku about Taika Waititi's film:

    It's called 'The Haiku by a guy who used to be fat.'

    Ricky Baker and uncle hec,
    Get themselves broken and chased.
    They sing, dance, sleep and hunt,
    Coz that's how they grow up and stint.
    Witty, sharp and bittersweet,
    This is some awesome gangsta shit.
