You're reading: Odessa Film Festival

Above, gleaming gilt cherubs frolic.

I’m at the fabulous Odesa opera house for the opening of this year’s Odesa International Film Festival. With six British films on show including "Submarine" in competition, a Monty Python retrospective and British filmmakers taking part in master classes during the week, there’s a strong UK presence, supported by the British Council.

I’m delighted to meet Patricia Casey, producer of the first Python film, "And Now For Something Completely Different" and to see the opening film, the remarkable "The Artist", made in the style of a silent movie, set in 1927 and worth watching for Bérénice Bejo alone (some images, and a trailer, here).
