Hard to choose...

I figured that this poll was also a good opportunity to talk about woman-directed films. Since I have already mentioned Agnés Vars in BonafideBoss's Alphabetical Polls, I have decided to highlight the work of another incredible female director.

The shortlist was:

Jane Campion for The Piano

Debra Granik for Leave No Trace and Winter's Bone

Ildiko Enyedo for  On Body and Soul

Julia Ducourneau for Titane

Márta Mészáros for Adoption

Cynthia Scott for Strangers in Good Company

As much as I like Strangers in Good Company and want to promote Canadian cinema, it is not the better film. The Piano is already a much-discussed film. Leave No Trace and Winter's Bone are too mainstream/recent. Titane is too recent.

Coincidentally, the last two remaining films (Adoption and On Body and Soul) were Hungarian Berlin Golden Bears directed by Budapest-born women.

After deliberation, I chose Adoption (1975). Adoption focuses on the intergenerational friendship between two women. It is a subject I find more original than woman/man relations. Also, Adoption addresses more upfront problems lived by women. Lastly, I'm pretty sure Adoption won't be chosen by any other poll board member if I don't choose it, and that would be a shame.
