This film won the very first Grand Prize at the 1978 Montreal World Film Festival …

220px-Ligabue_(film).jpg

Ligabue (1978) Salvatore Nocita, Italy.

The imdb lists this as a 1977 TVM with a theatrical release of 1978.  I am not as sticky as some that would disqualify a movie that premiered on television.  If it has a subsequent theatrical or festival release in fairly short order it should qualify as feature film too.   The only question is which date to use as its release.

 

This film won the Jury Prize at the 1978 Montreal World Film Festival …

Messer-im-Kopf-1979-3.jpg

Bruno Ganz plays the victim of a policeman's bullet in Reinhard Huff's Knife In the Head (1978).  The injury leaves him partially paralyzed and with memory loss.  The police claim it was self defence as he was mixed up with radicals.  The radicals cite police brutality and claim him as a martyr.  Will the truth be revealed when Ganz recovers his memory?

Violette-Noziere-1978-3.jpg

Isabelle Huppert, Stephane Audran and Jean Carmet are all terrific in Claude Chabrol's Violette Noziere (1978).  Huppert plays the bored daughter who is always sneaking away at night to lead a secret life as a prostitute.  Audran was my number two choice for Best Supporting Actress this year just behind Geraldine Page in Interiors.

The Glass Cell (1978) Hans Geissendorfer, Germany is based on a Patricia Highsmith novel.  Helmut Griem plays a man who was falsely imprisoned for ten years for fraud.  When he gets out he questions if his wife (Brigitte Fossey) has been having an affair with his lawyer.
