Mohini Geisweiller – Milk Teeth (dir. Danakil)

In a house surrounded by trees, Mohini hyperventilates into a paper bag to calm her anxiety – she is being haunted by Christlike visions, vodka drinks, and a projection of her soul as a strange creature.

Alone in a car with this surreal shape of her vital bodily functions, she attempts to escape her darkness.

Danakil (winner of Antville’s Best New Music Director 2009) paints a surreal picture of paranoia to compliment Geisweiller’s leftfield electro-pop.

That scene in Mother (Korean) gave me goosebumps

And (strangely) I was inspired to do an illustration based on the screen shot.

爱情的牙齿 (Teeth of Love)2007

Teeth of Love

The Teeth of Love tells the story of a woman’s emotional pain from three failed love affairs. Split into three parts, the film follows Qian Yehong firstly through her tomboy teenage years in 1970s Beijing, during which she breaks the heart of an adoring boyfriend.

The drama then shifts to her early 20s, with her working as a doctor in a hospital. She has an affair with a married man. After this ends badly, she returns to Beijing to work in an abattoir and drifts into a marriage with a shy man called Wei Yingqiu, the relative of an old classmate. Sadly, although the couple has a child, Qian remains unfulfilled.

Each affair somehow manifests itself physically with the troubled protagonist, such as back pain in her teenage years and an abortion from her time with the married man.

Qian’s weak back serves as a symbol of her misery and flare-ups serve as a warning of imminent trouble.

I’ll be seeing you

While packing my room, I thought I need to hear some movies on my speakers (it’s a habit, I need some music, television or radio turned on whenever I’m alone). So I decided to watch The Notebook again.

2 hours later, my room’s not packed at all and my sleeves are wet.

Noah is such a beautiful character. If only such a boy exists.

The Orphanage

The Plot
A woman brings her family back to her childhood home, where she opens an orphanage for handicapped children. Before long, her son starts to communicate with an invisible new friend.

Reading the plot bores me but after watching the film, I’m speechless. Finally no more long hair, blood and predictable shocking scenes.

If The Orphanage is an artwork, it’s going to be a masterpiece. I like how the camera moves, the art direction, storyline and the pacing of the film. It wasn’t draggy like Pan’s Labyrinth but both films were similar in a way- their very strong art direction. Seems like they’ve spent a lot of time on props and make up. The story is really awesome. I’m going to watch out for Guillermo del Toro’s film from now on.

Spanish horror is taking over Asian horror.

Brilliant, brilliant.

Watch this film.

TRADE

When 13-year-old Adriana (Paulina Gaitan) is kidnapped by sex traffickers in Mexico City, her 17-year-old brother, Jorge (Cesar Ramos), sets off on a desperate mission to save her.

Trapped by an underground network of international thugs who earn millions exploiting their human cargo, Adriana’s only friend throughout her ordeal is Veronica (Alicja Bachleda), a young Polish woman captured by the same criminal gang. As Jorge dodges overwhelming obstacles to track the girl’s abductors, he meets Ray (Kevin Kline), a Texas cop whose own family loss leads him to become an ally.

From the barrios of Mexico City and the treacherous Rio Grande border, to a secret internet sex slave auction and a tense confrontation at a stash house in suburban New Jersey, Ray and Jorge forge a close bond as they frantically pursue Adriana’s kidnappers before she is sold and disappears into a brutal underworld from which few victims ever return.
