EO (Skolimowski, 2022): Curzon Soho, 8pm

66th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (5th - 16th October 2022) DAY 4

Every day (from October 5th to October 16th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening.

This film also screens at Odeon Luxe West End on Sunday October 9th. Details here.

BFI review:
The world is a mysterious place when seen from the perspective of an animal. EO, a donkey with melancholic eyes and a fondness for carrots, meets a plethora of good and bad people on his journey through life. He experiences joy and pain, endures the wheel of fortune randomly turning his luck into disaster and his despair into unexpected bliss. But not even for a moment does he lose his innocence. The latest collaboration between Polish director Skolimowski (The Shout) and his veteran producer Jeremy Thomas, EO is a distinctive and ultimately poignant work. Brilliantly shot by Michal Dymek and featuring immersive sound design, the drama ponders with distinction and eloquence the follies of humanity while never resorting to sermonising. Interspersed with moments of bracing surrealism, EO reminds us not only of the need for humility, but also of Skolimowski’s immense contribution to world cinema.
