Marco Berger

Marco Berger is a criminally undervalued film-maker - his two films, Plan B and Absent are masterpieces in emotional restraint that totally defied my expectations. The former, a closed fist of a love story, that I fell utterly in love with. The latter, a kind of unrequited love story filmed as a suspense flic, that managed to punch you in the gut with that same closed fist.
Even if you don't get to see either film  - though you really should - please think about making a pledge, via Kickstarter, towards his new film (which promises to be another love story driven by inner turmoil). It looks like he is struggling to meet his target at the moment - which is a real shame.
