What Movie Brought You and Your Partner Closer Together?

  • Movies.com
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, which means millions of lovers will be going out to the movies on a special weeknight date, possibly growing closer over the latest Die Hard, Nicholas Sparks or Ya fantasy film. Or, maybe they're staying home with a great new home video release, such as The Sessions or Planet of Snail -- either of which will prove that no handicap is too great for romance (so you'll have no excuse!).  But movies can bring you and your partner ever closer long after that first or early date. Maybe a certain topic comes up that allows you to bond over views on waterboarding or Abe Lincoln's presidency or what you would do if your kid was kidnapped or arrested in a foreign country and you aren't Liam Neeson or Bruce Willis. Perhaps Skyfall...

Award Winning Producer Paul Mezey Joins Cinereach Team

Cinereach is an innovative new force for good works in the independent film community. This not-for-profit film production company and foundation that champions vital stories, artfully told, was created and led by young philanthropists, entrepreneurs and filmmakers, Cinereach supports fiction and nonfiction filmmakers from all over the world through its Productions, Grants & Awards and Fellowships initiatives, and through partnerships with Sundance Institute’s programs. Cinereach has supported over 100 films in the Us and internationally, including Circumstance, Pariah, The World Before Her, Planet of Snail, Girl Model, Code of the West and many more. Cinereach Production Beasts of the Southern Wild was released in the Us in 2012 by Fox Searchlight Pictures, and is nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture.

After collaborating with Cinereach for many years on films including Benh Zeitlin’s four time Academy Award nominated film, Beasts of the Southern Wild, Joshua Marston’s The Forgiveness of Blood, and Tom Gilroy’s The Cold Lands (premiering at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival), Paul Mezey has signed on as Producer in Residence at the not-for-profit production company and foundation. Mezey will support development, production and distribution of Cinereach’s productions, as well as being involved in the organization’s grant-making activities and other key initiatives.

Mezey is the founder of Journeyman Pictures, through which he has produced a number of critically acclaimed and award winning films including Maria Full of Grace (2005 Academy Award Nomination for Best Actress in a Leading Role) and Half Nelson (2007 Academy Award Nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role).

Cinereach offers each of its productions a custom support framework adapted to its unique needs. This flexible continuum of financing, guidance and infrastructure encourages filmmakers like Beasts of the Southern Wild’s Benh Zeitlin to take essential creative risks. Mezey has been a key architect of this producing approach and, as Producer in Residence, will guide the organization as it continues to evolve.

“Paul has influenced so much of how we approach our work at Cinereach already,” said Cinereach’s founder and Executive Director Philipp Engelhorn. “We look forward to a more holistic collaboration with Paul, and further benefiting from his tremendous experience and courageous independent spirit.”

“Working with Cinereach has been a transformative experience,“ states Mezey. “There is pure dedication to creating the conditions under which filmmakers can flourish and fulfill the full ambition of their work. As a creative producer, I know that our interests are aligned at every step and I am excited to continue to help build a model that can bring surprising and unexpected films to the screen.”

5 Broken Cameras Wins Best Doc at 2013 Cinema Eye Honors

Sorry Oscars. But after the Indie Spirit Awards, the number two spot in terms of Award Season importance are the Cinema Eye Honors. Seems like it was only yesterday when Aj Schnack & Thom Powers teamed up for one basic, logical concept: an event that would reward yearly output of documentary film in a rightfully sound manner. With the wind in their sails, the 6th annual edition was held last night and deservingly so, adding to its double wins at the Idfa and Sundance, it is 5 Broken Cameras that took the top honors for Outstanding Achievement in Nonfiction Feature Filmmaking. Co-directed by Emad Burnat and Guy Davidi – political activism via you guessed it, five video cameras. The film was released via Kino Lorber.

The night’s only double winner, could be regarded as the silver medal doc film of the year: Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady’s Detropia grabbed the Outstanding

Planet of Snail | Review

Communication Studies: Seung-Jun Offers Space Tourism of a Different Kind

We take our senses for granted. Trapped in the silent darkness of his own existence, deaf-blind Korean poet Young-Chan experiences the world mostly through touch. His wife, Soon-Ho, also has a disability. Her back issues have stopped her vertical growth, stunting her just above the height of her husband’s waist. Though their disabilities have brought them together, as a team they overcome their hardships in beautiful, and surprising ways. After detailing the conditions of the suppressed Nepalese people in Children of God, docu-helmer Yi Seung-jun returns with yet another subtle story of human triumph in the face of extreme adversity with the sublime, Idfa Award-winning, Planet of Snail.

Exploring the experience of a man who can’t hear or see, in a medium he physically can’t perceive, is an intrepid undertaking, but Seung-jun has conveyed the feeling quite gracefully.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter slays competition at UK box office

Historical action film about early Us president drives a stake through the heart of the Men in Black

Fresh blood

A cursory glance reveals that king of the heap is Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, with £1.12m. However, in reality, the high-concept historical actioner landed in fifth place for the weekend, with £744,000. The discrepancy between those two figures is accounted for by preview takings on Wednesday and Thursday, enough to send the film leapfrogging over its rivals. Bekmambetov's film was always going to be a tricky sell at the UK box office: films about early Us presidents have tended not to flourish here (anyone recall Jefferson in Paris, from 1995?). As for star Benjamin Walker, he's hardly a marquee name in the Us either, but at least he enjoys some profile there for stage hit musical Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, about another early Us president.

"Only the Young" & "Planet of Snail" Take Top Silverdocs Awards

In an afternoon ceremony yesterday in Silver Spring MD, Silverdocs announced the jury and special award winners for its 10th anniversary edition. Jason Tippet and Elizabeth Mims' "Only the Young," a beautifully-lensed portrait of adolescent friendship and romance in suburban Californa, was the recipient of the Sterling Award for Best Us Feature, while Seungiun Yi's acclaimed "Planet of Snail," a lyrical film about the life of a deaf and blind South Korean poet and his wife, claimed the Sterling Award for Best World Feature. Both awards came with a $5000 cash prize. The Sterling Award for Best Short Film (for which I served as a juror) went to Sari Gilman's evocative exploration of the need for human connection among a group of Floridian senior citizens, "Kings Point." The award is accompanied by a $2500 cash prize. In addition to the juried awards, Silverdocs presented two cash prizes in partnership with

The Hey U Guys Cinema Release Round-up : 22nd June

Once again Prometheus stands atop of the box office mountain this week, still some way above Men In Black 3 back in second place. Out of last week’s crop, predictably the highest entry was hair-metal musical Rock of Ages, though that only came in at fourth spot, which may disappoint Warner Bros slightly as they may have hoped for a better opening weekend for one of their major summer offerings. Red Lights did decent business finishing up in sixth place, while special mention should go to Brit Flick Fast Girls which came in at a very credible eighth.

So to this week’s movies, and while there’s nothing out which will challenge the big hitters for the Box Office crown, Timur Bekmambetov’s fantasy horror mash-up Abraham Lincoln Vampire Killer should do a fair bit of business. Based on the novel by the same name, it looks set

This week's new films

Silent Souls (15)

(Aleksei Fedorchenko, 2010, Rus) Igor Sergeev, Yuriy Tsurilo, Yuliya Aug. 78 mins

Even by Russian standards, this lyrical road movie is a strange world of its own. It's a journey back in time, as much as across a remote landscape, with a friend helping his boss to give his deceased wife her last rites, according to their ancient tribal ways. Along the drive, we're steeped in strange folklore involving vodka, rivers, small birds and ornamental pubic hair. Is it for real? Or an elaborate joke told with a very straight face? Does it matter?

The Five Year Engagement (15)

(Nicholas Stoller, 2012, Us) Emily Blunt, Jason Segel, Chris Pratt. 124 mins

The obstacle to true love is built into the title of this romcom, but it's at least smartly handled, as high-flyer Blunt keeps her fiance in perpetual limbo.

Where Do We Go Now? (12A)

(Nadine Labaki, 2011, Fra/Leb/Egy/Ita) Claude Baz Moussawbaa,

Planet of Snail Review: Touching, Educational Doc

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

While a documentary about a deaf-blind man coping with life could very easily come from the miserabilist school of filmmaking, Yi Seung-jun’s Planet of Snail is very much the converse. The first image, of afflicted Young-Chan flying a kite, is telling, for despite his tragic condition, the joy on his face is unmistakable, and something many of us blessed with a full set of senses can aspire to.

The lack of narration makes his situation a little mystifying at first, and you might not even immediately realise that he is deaf, as his wife’s communication method – of tapping on his fingers like a keyboard – is so alien to anyone not in that position. She herself is beset by a painful spine condition, such that the two must make do, using their strengths and weaknesses in tandem to get through the day.

While the little-and-large

Film Review: 'Planet of Snail'

★★★★☆ South Korean director Yi Seung-jun's heartfelt documentary Planet of Snail (2011) presents the moving tale of Young-Chan, a soulful individual who lost both his sight and hearing as a child and since then has only been able to communicate through his sense of touch. Fortunately for Young-Chan, he met his wife Soon-Ho, also disabled but with perfect sight and hearing, who aids him daily.

This week's new films

Rock Of Ages (12A)

(Adam Shankman, 2012, Us) Julianne Hough, Diego Boneta, Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Russell Brand, Paul Giamatti, Catherine Zeta-Jones. 123 mins

Doing for 1980s hair metal what Mamma Mia! did for Abba, this glossy musical gives you the broad pleasures of pantomime rather than rock'n'roll danger, with theatrical star turns and a playlist of power ballads hung around an archetypal tale of a smalltown girl and a wannabe rock star boy on La's Sunset Strip. You can stop believin' now.

Cosmopolis (15)

(David Cronenberg, 2012, Fra/Can/Por/Ita) Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Sarah Gadon. 109 mins

Don De Lillo's prescient novella makes for a cool Manhattan odyssey, centred on Pattinson's jaded banker and the Occupy zeitgeist.

Polisse (15)

(Maïwenn, 2011, Fra) Karin Viard, Joey Starr, Marina Foïs. 128 mins

A Wire-like approach to a French child protection unit reaps dividends for this docu-style procedural.

Red Lights (15)

Seung Jun-Yi talks about Planet Of Snail

Planet Of Snail was shown today at Sheffield's Doc/Fest, where we were especially proud to have the director, because he first proposed the making of this film at Doc/Fest's MeetMarket in 2009. The film was very well received, and its sensitive and unassuming director, Seung Jun-Yi, was there after the screening for a Q&A. The audience warmed to him as we did to his remarkable film.

Planet Of Snail looks at the lives of a deaf-blind man and the wife who cares for him. Seung Jun-Yi told us that at first the couple, Young-Chan and Soon-Ho, refused to be filmed because of the way the media generally deals with disabled people. But when they got to know the director they agreed. After completion, Seung Jun-Yi described sequences to them and they thanked him for making the film.

Did he know them before? How did he begin the project?
