[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]
This one is a really really interesting film I've seen in World Film Festival of Bangkok this year. It's not just an experimental which wants to experiments something and left audiences behind. This one is about colonialism and post-colonialism by a Haitian director who's talking about France !!
This film is a political as well, but in a surrealistic way. Every scenes are meaningful and very sharp in its message, I mean really 'every' scene since the beautiful and wide opening of Haitian island til the death of the Frenchwoman by the sea at the end.
The 'Mange' scene, 'Merci' scene, 'Cake' scene, 'DJ' scene, 'Sex' scene (in a realllllly surreal way between a black guy and a white girl), all of them made me still think and think about this one.
I resisted to get out of the film for the third time in my life. I assisted to a special projection with the director present, and i really do not understand what he was thinking when developing the project
"una mega fumada"
this is from the category of "the avant garde" @hkiff
lots of non-narrative images and i think lots of symbolism which i dont reli get much......
