I’m really curious and looking forward to watch Hævnen (In a Better World) that has been pleasing juries and audiences alike; but from trailer got very interested in Poll. Everything with Toni Servillo is must be seen for me and definitively I’m interested in seeing Las Buenas Hierbas.

So that's it for this year!
