Watching 5 movies a day at the Locarno Film Festival which is 6th August to 16th August in Locarno Italian-speaking part of Switzerland, I find "Mods" to have been the movie I enjoyed watching the most.
This movie experience is truly original. Funny, the dialogs are heavy so easy to understand.
* spoilers ahead *
The choreography is so nice, the whole movie is like a ballet dance, specially the several actual Ballet dancing sequences that interrupt the "play" every few minutes.
The actors are young people, but they are so nicely into the movie, most of them have weird haircuts. This movie is very nicely showing off some weird trend I guess called the "mods" trend. With Beatles-kind-of hair-style.
One funny joke in the movie is the doctor lying on this table banging his head into a door when he wakes up when that military guy enters, and then he says "Did I scare you?", he has got that weird hair-cut you know, it's kind-of scary.
At the forum-discussion the producer of the movie said the cost of making this movie was as low as 50 thousand euros. I say, with all those expensive-looking super-productions, I look forward to more original scripts made into cheap movies like this Mods-experience and distributed to that audience of clever people such movie deserves.
This movie was screened late in the afternoon in the big indoor cinema of the festival. Sadly it did not get a standing-ovation, and the director was left sitting in the nearly empty huge cinema when the credits were finished scrolling. I went and told the director I really enjoyed the movie, and I noticed a few other people express the same, but I guess this is not enough. I expect this movie will be distributed to the places it deserves to be shown and let the millions of people who want to experience such great crazy script and movie be able to.
