GUILTY OF ROMANCE (2011) by Sono Shion, at Fantasporto 2012

user
  One of the most eccentric films I have seen of late was the Japanese film GUILTY OF ROMANCE (恋の罪 Koi no Tsumi?, 2011) by auteur director Sono Shion. Reflecting the genre Japanese ‘pink cinema’, the film is about three women who find sexual freedom in unconventional ways through pink paint balloon tossing, prostitution and poetry. From the director of the films COLD FISH (2010) and HIMIZU (2011), Shion is not only a prolific director but one who shocks and pushes the envelope...

Bellflower by Evan Godell received Jury Special Award at Fantasporto

user
"The film was a hit at Sundance in 2011 and went on to make nine times its $17,000 budget. The film is written, directed and stars Evan Godell who also designed and built the camera used for shooting. This combination of old camera parts, Russian lenses, and a Digital camera give the film a visually compelling look that ties in nicely with the post Apocalyptic theme. A very unique story dealing with adulthood and the inevitable pitfalls that plague all of us as we try to find ourselves. L...

THE MAIDEN DANCED TO DEATH (2011) at Fantasporto!

user
Hungarian cinema comes to Porto during Fantasporto 2012 in Endre Hules' film, THE MAIDEN DANCED TO DEATH (2011). The film is about two brothers during Communist Hungary who were great dancers and once upon a time danced together. But while one brother kept dancing, the other gave it up. Now they meet twenty years later to dance together again. I interviewed Endre Hules a year ago before the film was finished. And now here in Fantasporto I will finally s...
