world premiere of a swedish dark comedy called the real estate and this comes on the heels of the square another swedish dark comedy winning at cannes well this one's a little different it's about a very tough middle aged woman who inherits a very rundown apartment building and her determination to be in control of it and edge out her male relatives also some dodgy tenants and she's willing to stop at nothing i have to say that the reception to this movie was very mixed strong woman that's what we want to see and especially the first belly nala after me to this one wasn't very likeable though oh perhaps there was something else that you saw today that premiered that got a better response. a much better response actually the movie that premiered just before this. a daughter of mine it's an italian film about three women
10:11 pm
strong women three brilliant performances actually and that got a great response if i were a betting man i might say that this is they're in the running for a golden bear we've got a closer look. it's a stunning portrait of motherhood figure me a daughter of mine for his ten year old for turiya is nice turned upside down by the discovery of her birth mother forcing her to navigate a treacherous path between opposing maternal figure is. good. even. that. full. of intelligent and rich in metaphor the film dismantles the classic madonna and whole truth behind a complex picture of two powerful but flawed women. my

. love is the work of italian directed lure the first female director of the competition so far the feature debut sworn in also starring about her by her was a bad analogy kicks in twenty fifteen this time she's returning with renowned italian actress the lariat galeano. i was the new go at. it i had to elbow my way in. between them they are for a sensitive and moving exploration of the female condition. the idea was to investigate maternity in a more way to deconstruct the image of a perfect mother which is often idealized and to tell the story of inadequate mothers. in my view there is something real and true in the same perfection there
10:13 pm
is a beauty in this imperfection. so women stories are front and center at this year's ballon either but here bashful here mia for its rule and complex picture of womanhood you may also be surprised how often you'll be on the edge of you'll see. history missed out on a golden bear in twenty fifteen we may still have a week to go before this year's winner is announced but there's already chatter about whether this could be a year. so david do you think that this movie has a good chance at clinching the golden bear but with the competition heating up who do you think we might be talking about this time next week. well there are a couple of movies next week that i think we really still need to keep our eyes on gus van sant the director of elephants and good will hunting has a new movie and there's also a movie from mexico starring got a got to see a bad novel also a big figure at the belly nala now there was another movie called transit earlier
10:14 pm
that was generating a lot of buzz and this is a very different look at world war two it takes place in france but as if it were current day and people are saying that this is creating maybe you more empathy among present day europeans who are refugees who are coming to europe by taking a different look at that through the eyes of world war two actually so there was a lot of positive buzz around that film by german director. it's still too early to say for sure but i think that fear may have elbowed that one out there are nineteen of the sorry there in one thousand films in the running for the golden bear four of them were directed by women and i think me too. in the context of me to maybe a woman's ear david leavitt's reporting life from the berlin red carpet thanks very much. and just
