5 July, Marseille - A Malaysian fiction film, LOVE CONQUERS ALL, opened the International Documentary Film festival of Marseille.

International Documentary Film festival of Marseille ( FIDMarseille) has take a drastic turn as the festival turning 18th this year. It had been a world renown documentary film festival, and this year it decides to open up the international competition to fiction film.

"When generalist festivals are increasingly including documentaries in their selections, we are choosing to reverse this tendency: it is our turn to welcome fiction, fully and entirely." The festival director, Jean-Pierre Rehm explained.

"It is a way of reaffirming the vigour of the documentary film, which does not need a reserved area to indicate its importance, and it does not give a hoot about boundaries to designate that this genre widely disseminates, and often for the better. To situate the question on a more theoretical level, never have we found the opposition between the real and the invented to be fruitful for considering the differences between documentary and fiction."

Jean-Pierre Rehm also mentioned three of the fiction films in competition, the filmmakres are very young and from south east asian region: "Love Conquers All", by tan Chui Mui, 28, Malaysia; "Autohytoria" by Raya Martin, 23, Philippine; "The Woven Stories of Other" by Sherad Anthony Sanchez, 22, Philippine.

The jury of the International Competition are Patricio Guzm�n, Angela Schanelec, Tahani Rached, Enrico Ghezzi. Apichatpong Weerasethakul heads the jury.

Tan Chui Mui, the director of "Love Conquers All" was present at the opening in the Grand Theatre of La Criee. About 700 people attended the screening. The film received warm reception from the audience.

Love Conquers All

"You don't have a choice. Unless you jump." John said.
She opened the car door, looked out, hesistated.
Jumping is too painful. And it is dark ahead and it is dark behind. So she closed the door.
And then it is too late to jump anyway.
