Toronto International Film Festival's International Line-Up

While the complete film list by title won't be announced until next Tuesday, August 21, a whole slew of announcements have been made over the past several days. In fact, over at Thompson on Hollywood, Variety.com's deputy editor Anne Thompson lists the complete international film line-up (not really sure what that means) by country. It's a pretty cool list, and I'm only going to name a couple of films that I am excited about.

It's always fun to see a new film by François Ozon (SWIMMING POOL; 8 WOMEN), and his latest effort is called ANGEL. Starring Charlotte Rampling and Sam Neill, ANGEL tells the story of a young woman with incredible imagination who refuses to accept the world around her, and creates her own realities. It's been a while since we've had a new film by Danish director Lone Scherfig (ITALIAN FOR BEGINNERS; WILBUR WANTS TO KILL HIMSELF), and she returns with a comedy called JUST LIKE HOME. It's good to see a new film by the always challenging Catherine Breillat (SEX IS COMEDY; FAT GIRL), and she returns with UNE VIEILLE MAÎTRESSE (pictured left), where secrets, rumors and betrayals surround the upcoming marriage between a young dissolute man and virtuous woman of the French aristocracy.

There is a whole lot more to come, and I will be returning to post about getting the tickets you want in the next few days.
