Nymph gets genre-fied in Sitges
The Sitges Festival Internacional de Cinema Fantástic de Catalunya -- the world's premiere genre festival -- has released a few early titles for its 42nd edition from October 1 to 12, among them Nymph, the brooding and atmospheric psychological drama and ghost story by Pen-ek Ratanaruang.
It's playing in the Oficial Noves Visions Ficció competition with another Un Certain Regard neighbor from Cannes -- Raya Martin's Independencia. There's also The Forbidden Door by Indonesia's Joko Anwar.
The opening film is another from Cannes -- Tsai Ming-liang's French film Visage, "an open, heartfelt tribute to Francois Truffaut".
