TIFF 2011 Day 11

Where Do We Go Now? (winner TIFF people’s choice)
In a remote Lebanese hamlet, the outside world begins to creep in when a villager installs a TV set. Determined to avoid sectarian violence, the women band together and hatch a devious plan. Excellent script, but I wish the musical numbers were more numerous and more universal. And why do the subtitles for foreign films always use the crappiest font they can find? 9/10

The Cat Vanishes
A professor returns home from a psychiatric clinic after having a psychotic break. Shortly after, the cat vanishes. Is it a portent of an ill wind, or has the cat just wandered off for a few days? Good start and end, but the pacing in the middle was a bit slow and needed to kick up the tension by a notch. 5/10
