Medici con l’Africa & Reluctant Fundamentalist

Medici con l’Africa, documentary by a Venetian, Carlo Mazzacurati, about doctors via a Catholic organisation in Padova & interviews with the many Italian doctors who have gone there for a month or 30 years. Moving, well balanced & a long standing ovation. Not in competition.
Rating: 9/10.

The Reluctant Fundalmentalist by Mira Nair, who did Monsoon Wedding & won the best film in 2002, about a Pakistani who goes to the USA, becomes a successful investment banker & receives bad treatment in the USA after 9/11, returns & becomes a radical university lecturer & becomes a target for the CIA after a kidnapping. Really liked it, best so far, long ovation, not in the competition.
Rating: 9/10.
