Wedding Guests

Germany, 1990 (MIFF 1991, Fiction)

Director: Niko Brucher

A photographer catches a glimpse of a wedding party arriving - through her eyes we follow this group, as several stories spin off in the course of the wedding.

Niko Bmcher's gracious, speechless story moves like pure cinematic poetry. Shot in Poland with students from the Lodz Film School, its technical brilliance should not be allowed to overshadow its sheer beauty.
