to the toronto film festival in just a minute but also coming up. in our series 100 german must reads a book cold in times of fading light an intricate saga about family life in the former east germany. and we'll have a look at the beethoven fest in the great composers hometown of ball which got under way we can. but we begin in canada a toronto international film festival because of the time of year it's held it is rather like venice before it considered a bit of a launch pad for the oscars so apart from all the usual independent films there's a few hollywood blockbusters getting their premieres in toronto as well i'll be talking to scott rocks in just a minute but 1st a bit mole about the tiff. it started quite small but over the years to run 2 has
2:34 pm
become one of the most important film industry hops this year it presents for $333.00 films from $84.00 countries it's not an a festival so there's no international competition but that doesn't mean no major premieres and b. star was. good last year green book was screened it won the toronto audience prize and went on to pick up the best picture oscar. because it takes. this year tom hanks is one of the big names dropping him he stars in a movie about us t.v. legend fred rogers. the toronto international film festival runs until sunday. and joining me now direct from toronto is scott iraq's fresh from seeing the movie jo-jo rabbit now this
2:35 pm
is a black comedy about a young boy in the hitler youth who has an imaginary friend in the fall i had to 1st let's see scott just let's see a quick short clip. joe joe my old friend. what's called it and then they call me a scanned rabbit people used to say a lot of nasty things about me. hi scott now scott that's sounds quite surreal you've seen it all. yeah that's real is actually not a bad word for this this is is a quite unusual film has a weird pitch lied it is a story about a young german boy who idolize the nazis set close to the end of the 2nd world war and then he has this imaginary fred who is a version of adult sort of
2:36 pm
a boyhood childish version of sort of a goofy adult hitler and then the boy himself comes into conflict because he discovers that his mother is actually hiding a jewish girl in their house at the time and so he has to make this issue of whether to turn the girl in and be loyal to his doxie beliefs or or do the right thing a very interesting movie it could have really gone horribly wrong i have to say the premise is so problematic but the director here the new zealand director. he also plays hitler actually in the clip that we just saw he gets the balance just right he's an interesting guy he's both bowery and jewish heritage and he gets the balance between the the humor and the whore exactly right this film remind me a lot of life is beautiful another story that found comedy in the horrors of the
2:37 pm
2nd world war and i think it's really an amazing. feat that what he as a man has managed here and could be maybe the final for the 1st film to actually get even germans to laugh at him ok now another black hole but the old. i believe this is a whodunit with a difference. yeah this is an interest film of it's from ryan johnson whose last movie was the last of the last star wars movie so i wasn't really knowing what to expect from him when he did just a whodunit the film is set up like sort of one of those classic agatha christie adaptations you know star studded whodunit here you've got daniel craig jamie lee curtis michael shannon all these these these amazing actors packed into this room in one of the beds a bed and then a guy with a foreign name in a weird accent comes as a tactic to try and solve this case played by daniel craig but usually whodunits
2:38 pm
for me don't work because they've been done to death you know we see hundreds of versions on film and on t.v. but what ryan johnson does with this is he sort of plays with the genre he has a lot of fun with it and he almost makes it almost a satire but in the end it still works as a proper act christie style whodunit watching this film had the feeling like this is the kind of movie that if agatha christie got stoned and wrote a new mystery this is what might come out as a lot of fun and if you're a fan of the old school i think christie's you have a lot of fun with this scope i'm going to lot of target just tell me there's also a lot of talk about one particular bio page a beautiful day in the neighborhood starring tom hanks what did you make about what . yeah this is quite interesting a female director here there's a lot of female directors in this year this is a biopic but with a difference it's stars the nicest man in hollywood tom hanks playing the nicest man in t.v. fred rogers or mr rogers the late children's t.v. presenter and what's interesting about this it's not really the story of fred
2:39 pm
rogers but it's the story of the life of someone who can influence namely a cynical journalist who tried to find the dark secrets about fred rogers but spoiler alert all he found was more wonderfulness this film is like a big warm hug and maybe just the right thing for these sort of talks at times skull always a mine of information great to chill. scott ross wrote in toronto thank you. now in our continuing series 100 german must read featuring great books from german authors that being translated into english we're looking at a book that sheds some light on how family life was in the former communist east germany in times of fading light all you can rule go off is a view of life on the wrong side of the.
2:40 pm
another family gathering from hell the mom could smash the sun doesn't even show up on the 9 year old birthday boy the grandpa probably knows of the happening. and. everyone in or going to his novel in times of fading light knows the old man's and the mentor but it's probably for the best otherwise he'd realize the country has helped build is about to end this like his life it's october 1909 a few weeks before the east german regime collapses. it was 57 when he made his debut with this novel tells the history of east germany through the eyes of a family his own family. the author's alter ego alexandre hates growing up in the country his grandfather believes. he would never hear the rolling stones live would never see woodstock never even see west berlin with its new demos and
2:41 pm
student riots it's free love because between the small narrow world where he would have to spend his life and the other big wide world where real true life was lived there was a border and it was the one that he likes on their own it's our turn to have to guard. in times of fading light is about the failure of a whole country written without accusations or justifications read it if you want to understand what made people build communist east germany and why their dream was doomed to fail. the western german city of ball was looks big beethoven. where he spent a formative years of his life as a beethoven fast that and a featuring many of his works of course but then self was a great innovator so i'm sure he would have approved of the festival features contemporary music and lots of dance as well but it got underway at the weekend
2:42 pm
with classic. music's in the yeah the beethoven fest and been kicked off with one of its annual favorites and i'm screaming off the opening concert of the markets where i'm on. it features spiritual from symphony number 6 also known as the pastoral symphony conducted by you cup a kind of sadness to you and the food i'm on the answering. list to here sitting out signs experiencing this with other people i really like the conductor it's exciting to watch him but it's the you don't like it when you listen to this it's a force of nature fantastic. one last we heard so at dawn's world congress center playing the pastoral symphony and beatles his hometown is a special experience for the $94.00 musicians and the conductor.
2:43 pm
well it's a unique symphony of course and all symphonies and kind of bet on how this kind of . i did about what nature means to people and i think that's the kind of the most important point of view. every year the festival picks a motto and connection to be a tough life and work this year it's moonlight a romantic theme that's based on the composer's moonlight sonata and fits in well with the 50th anniversary of the moon landing the moon time for the minority simply are chanting makes us want to dream. this the man on the moon monument everything seems possible this feelings of love and longing seems a whole thesis connected to the theme of moonlight the moon changes the contours of the real world. over the next few weeks the beethoven fest will
2:44 pm
stage around 50 performances among this year's highlights as a joint concert over german vocal ensemble and a south african a capella group and there's more with ballet experimental works and works for me it's also taking the stage. as it is here my i want to present something special at the beethoven fest it just goes on it's not just about the old masters like my slow enough this wild why do while we go so we can't just one of the old mobsters we want to show what contemporary musicians do with that extraordinary heritage. album. this is why the opening concert is not just about beatles pieces from their trying to get century i included like beloved talks the miraculous mandarin. talk beethoven was a main source of inspiration. because there are so kind of obvious reasons to
2:45 pm
to play better from here but i think it's a very good idea to try to juxtapose the battlefronts. heritage. how it kind of reflects and music after better from. this was the opening concert of this year's beatles. next year it's the 250th anniversary of the composer's birthday john will celebrate the special occasion with not one but 2 festivals. and the 1st one gets underway next march 20th also runs this welcome all of beethoven's 9th symphony march fall on the website as the w. media for the festival so for this edition of arts and culture i. kick

on track after friday's defeat by the dutch. i'm sorry kelly welcome to the program the british parliament has again the voted against holding a snap general election prime minister boris johnson had requested one for october 15th but the opposition labor party refused to back the proposal unless johnson agreed to seek a delay to the u.k.'s exit from the european union now amid this crisis johnson has ordered parliament into recess the chamber will only reconvene about 2 weeks before the october 31st brags that deadline. horses snap election bid last week boris johnson gave it another go in a sitting stretching into the early hours of tuesday. once again he was not

2:52 pm
to use were quick to pounce. thank you mr speaker i sit ups congratulate the prime minister because at least he's been consistent is lost every vote he's brought to this i think. parliament has now gone into recess for 5 weeks after johnson probed the house the opposition made their opinion clear about the 1st term. i think let's get the view from london now we're joined by correspondent massive beer get we have parliament suspended now until mid october just over 2 weeks before the october 31st breaks that deadline what is going to happen backstage now during this time. well after you seen these really extraordinary scenes on stage sarah last night really really highly unusual m.p.'s are normally very well behaved during these
2:53 pm
ancient rituals when somebody from the house of lords comes to see something like this and the british parliament is really something that has never happened i don't think before for now the m.p.'s are going to go on retreat they're going to go into the party conference season and this gives them the opportunity also to regroup there's a lot going on behind the scenes because it's the expectation that sooner or later we will see a general election here in the u.k. and that begs the question are there maybe going to be something like electoral pacts all the remain parties helping each other all the breaks apart is helping each other talk between the bricks of party and also the conservative party whether they might somehow help each other because they want to see bret's it through at any cost whether the remain parties want to see don't want to leave without any deal so this is also something that's really new in the u.k. that doesn't normally happen nominee it's really one party one vote and they really
2:54 pm
everybody runs for themselves but now the whole while the whole field has been shaken up really unprecedented indeed very good and we also have this law preventing britain leaving the e.u. without a deal signed yesterday by the queen just walk us through what exactly this means i mean does it mean that the u.k. must leave the e.u. with a deal. well the deadline is at the 31st of october and this is when parliament has decided that they call the u.k. call and leave without it's ian at this point now we also know that prime minister boris johnson has said he'd rather die in a ditch than go to the e.u. and ask for an extension and constantly he's using very militaristic language but we've seen this really a tug of war between the government and parliament majority of parliamentarians who are forcing in effect the government to ask for an extension to not leave without
2:55 pm
a deal at this point now exactly how prime minister johnson is going to recall out of his we don't know there is of course a summit coming up and of october that would be his most sensible to try and go to brussels get somehow something that is maybe no it's not so far off from the dealer to resume a has negotiated but something that he can present as a new deal and then a last attempt to get that slightly changed through parliament that would be maybe the most sensible solution and we will see if that's really happening we've seen the cabinet resignation over the weekend one of. our colleagues resigned because she thought he isn't really trying to get that deal so many people doubt whether this is his strategy but that's for sure one of his strategies they're going to mass with a view from london thank you very good meanwhile in a day of high drama in the british parliament the speaker john bercow announced on
