Audience Reviews for This Is My Body

  • May 28, 2009
    [font=Century Gothic]When a director introduces his movie by inviting the audience to "turn on, tune in and drop out," you know it's going to be one of those nights. And Michelange Quay, director of his of debut feature "Eat, for This is My Body," does not disappoint. With the movie, he plays with the concept of time and space, favoring languorous panning shots for the interior of a mansion where he has slowed time down to a crawl, effectively creating an oppressive atmosphere within. Meanwhile, outside in the rest of Haiti, the country suffers from vast poverty but is bustling nonetheless. Inside, Madame(Sylvie Testud) lives with her ancient mother(Catherine Samie) who is simply wasting away. Very, very little is spoken, and the house is encased in shadows. Despite the ornate furnishings, they have nothing to feed a group of boys who visit but they eventually have cake. The other eating scene in the movie consists of Madame eating dinner on stage in front of a rapt audience.[/font] [font=Century Gothic][/font] [font=Century Gothic]And on that note, I will be out of town visiting relatives for a few days and will return to these pages on Monday, June 1.[/font]
