Every first Wednesday of the month the LuxFilmLab will highlight an artwork, chosen in consultation by the artistic committee of the Luxembourg City Film Festival and the programming team of Kinepolis.
Up this week will be “True History of the Kelly Gang”, recounting the story of Australian bush ranger Ned Kelly and his gang as they flee authorities in the 1870s.
The movie was originally to be shown at the Luxembourg City Film Festival but never aired as the pandemic cut the festival short.
Inspired by Peter Carey’s Booker prizewinning novel of the same name, Justin Kurzel’s 2019 film was described by The Guardian as a “brutal portrait of the outback outlaw”. The New York Times was less generous in its review, suggesting the movie is let down by the cliché riddled narration and dialogue. Judge for yourself by watching the film in Luxembourg.
The film, will be introduced by a member of the LuxFilmLab’s artistic committee.
