Press Play to start
At the 16th edition of Five Flavors, as last year, there is a system of booking seats at cinema screenings for accreditation and pass holders. It is important to us that we take care not to overcrowd the rooms and avoid queues at the entrance.
Only a reservation guarantees you a seat at a screening!
The reservation system is very simple and is based on similar principles as buying tickets for individual screenings - just login to your account, visit the page of the selected film and click "book". Detailed information can be found below.
Please make reservations only for the screenings you wish to attend. Reservations can be cancelled, even at the last minute - please remember this and always cancel your reservation if you cancel your screening - this will allow other viewers to use the available space.
Reservations will be possible from Tuesday, 15 November from 12:00 p.m. for all the festival's films.
Reservation of seats
for pass and accreditation holders
Tuesday, November 15, 12:00 pm
If you decide to attend a screening at the last minute or for any other reason you do not book in advance, and there are seats available in the auditorium, your booking will be made "automatically" at the entrance to the auditorium after scanning your pass.
For most of the screenings there will be free seats before the show itself. However, please pay special attention to the screenings of Edward Yang's works and the screenings of those films that we only show in the cinema - we expect the highest attendance at these screenings.
This year, you will also be able to use an electronic pass by presenting it to ticket takers on your phone screen.
Yoon Moon is eagerly awaiting her chance to star in a movie – after a few years of maternity leave and a difficult divorce, she is ready for new challenges. When her friend Roger offers her a role, she jumps at the opportunity. But the new film, an Asian variation on the adventures of Jason Bourne, is not a walk in the park – Yoon has to undergo tough physical training and quickly master martial arts, all the while keeping an eye on her insubordinate son… Then, an unexpected turn of events will force her to test her newly acquired skills in practice.
Tan Chui Mui, a prominent member of the Malaysian New Wave and a chameleon filmmaker, started developing the idea for Barbarian Invasion after a few years of maternity leave. Making the film was her chance to regain control over her body and meet with her good friends from the film circles.
Barbarian Invasion combines auteur cinema with a full-blooded martial arts genre film. On the one hand, it is intimate and personal, on the other, excitingly metacinematic and captivating for everyone who appreciates a good screen fight – this picture is one of the biggest discoveries of the season.
