Siblings Arthur and Diana are en route from Berlin to Paris in their late father’s Renault with Diana’s adorable two-year-old son in tow. On a mission to renew an expired MOT — a certificate confirming a vehicle’s compliance with road safety and environmental standards — on their shared car, a rusty childhood relic, they also plan on visiting their aging mother along the way. (...) Accompanied by Ben Roessler’s delightful score and shot on MiniDV, Betacam, and 16mm by Faraz Fesharaki (who follows his work on Alexandre Koberidze’s WHAT DO WE SEE WHEN WE LOOK AT THE SKY?), ARTHUR&DIANA moves constantly between the tension and stasis that bonds all families and sometimes propels us to stay on course. (Dorota Lech, TIFF – Toronto International Film Festival)
