MSPIFF Saturday tip: give yourself time

Posted at 2:41 PM on April 19, 2008 by Euan Kerr

I was able to take in a couple of films at MSPIFF last night: "You the living," a surreal Swedish nightmare comedy recommended by the Strib's Colin Covert, and "The Pope's Toilet," a bittersweet comedy from Uruguay about an impoverished family which pins it's future on opening a pay toilet in time for a Papal visit to their home town. Two very different films and both a delight.

One lesson learned though: build in enough time for ticket buying. It was probably a little busier last night as it was the first regular night of the festival, but the line got pretty darn long at the ticket desk for a while just before 7pm. I'd build in an extra 15 minutes just to make sure you see the beginning of the show.
