I was at the 4 PM Sunday “Best of the Fest” screening and it was, sadly, far short of a full house. Of all the winners, I liked the German animated tribute to Dresden artists best. There were some fine moments in “Be Calm and Count to Seven.” (a film made in 2008) However, I found the underdeveloped subplots, such as the over the contentious phone relationship between the chief smuggler and his wife, a bit distracting. But had his character been the central one in the film, rather than the boy with the missing father, that subplot could have been illuminating.  The persistent toothache bit brought to mind “Affliction,” and I was dreading a scene of self administered dentistry similar to one Nick Nolte treated us to in that film. But, considering it was the director/writer’s first effort, I can see the potential for them producing something more cohesive in the future.

Kind of tangled up one sentence which should have read “contentious over the phone relationship.”
