CamFilmFest Diary: Day 1

Date: Thursday 13 September

Films: 2 – Tabu (pre-festival film so doesn’t really count); To Rome With Love

Beverages: 1 cappuccino, 1 tea, 1 glass of red wine

Biscuits: 1

Verdict: Good start. Tabu was a damn good warm-up, with its impressive and imaginative storytelling, followed by Woody Allen’s lightly enjoyable divertimento – an entirely inconsequential work but with enough laughs and silliness along the way to make it worth seeing. Those looking for any resemblance to the real world should apply elsewhere.
