Sai nam tid shoer (2013)
At the lower Klity village, a group of young men go to the river for fishing. The others stay at home or go to school Their lives seem peaceful despite lack of electricity. Nevertheless what I've seen at first is just a surface.
This film is based on a famous case during 1999. A group of Klity villagers had filed a lawsuit against the lead mine since it polluted the community's river. As their action seemed hopeless, they still had to rely on that unclean river which was compared as their vein. They have been suffering toxins of the water.
"By the river" would have been another stereotypical documentary if it intended to be informative. On the Contrary, this is a kind of poetic docudrama that the audience could feel with the people and understand them. Thanks to memorizing cinematography, this film is peaceful yet haunting. Furthermore, it also contains elements of suspense film when one of the Klity villagers disappeared. By the way, Nontawat Numbenchapol made a previous documentary called Fahtum Pandinsoong (Boundary) which was sadly banned in Thailand due to sensitive issue of international relations between Thailand and Cambodia.
There's something missing, Something unforgettable
What a teacher said about the book named "The Life of Marianne" is the reflection of Adele(including Emma)'s life.
"There's something missing."
During 3 hours, I have seen the main characters searching for something called love to fulfill their lives. As for Adele, love is consuming (food, knowledge, body). When she meets the right one Emma, she thinks Emma could respond what Adele needs. Their love is blooming, passionate and intensive until they grow up. Adele is still voracious for Emma but Emma seems callous to her. Emma's love is just an inspiration for artistic creativity . Thus their love is like parallel which never join anymore. Eventually,the blue color which warms Adele is not from Emma. It's from herself environmentally ,e.g., her blue bedroom, the blue sea she goes to , the blue dress she wears.
When I heard this movie won Palm d'Or, this was in my "wanna see so bad" list.In spite of controversies, the director and the actors realized they should let the movie speak by itself. Obviously, Adele Exarchopoulos is the great discovery. She spellbinds me entirely so I forget that this movie is 3 hour long. I see her happy, I feel happy with her. I see her devastated, I cry with her. Meanwhile the story wouldn't be fulfilled if there wasn't Lea Seydoux's memorable performance although she doesn't appear as much as Adele. She can support and interact with Adele chemically like they really love each other. And I notice that Lea is very good at telling a story with her eyes. When I look at her eyes, I would know what's going on and how it's going to be.
Lastly, I would like to thank Abdellatif Kechiche, Adele Exarchopoulos, Lea Seydoux and anyone involved in this movie for having created the real epic of cinema.
An Amish Murder (2013)
Too soft but Gripping and Neve Campbell saves the movie
When I heard this movie was gonna be made, I was excited because I just wanted to watch Neve Campbell .Then I tried reading the book(Sworn to Silence) before although the movie would have missed many good things. After watching this, it was like people said "Books are better". This movie has cut gruesome material and reduced intensive moment.until a climax at the final sequence recovered these mistakes.
Nevertheless, Neve's performance has saved this movie. She's convincing as a police chief who was traumatized but she has grown up with strength and intellect to solve the case.
This movie is not like any typical crime show or Scream (there's a murder but without gore and surprising ending) but it will be much better if it becomes a TV series or has sequels which could focus on the other characters (Glock, T.J, Skid, Mona etc.)
Ci qing (2007)
Not the great but touching and subtle
It looked like another typical lesbian movie when I saw the commercial of this movie but actually this movie is so interesting,touching and desirable after watching this movie.
It depicts a relationship of two girls Jade and Takeko.Jade is a web-cam girl who always thinks her world is beautiful although her world means her colorfully decorated bedroom for service.Her thought is actually to cover her painful past.The other is Takeko.She is a tattoo artist who always thinks her painful past (leaving her brother alone and the death of her dad ) is her fault.She has Spider lilies tattooed on her arm.One day,Jade asks Takeko for Spider lilies because Jade can remember that her first love was a girl who had Spider Liliies tattooed.
The main issue of this movie is about remembrance which drives two girls love each other.so their relationship is tender and touching meanwhile this movie can portray how the internet world that many teenagers usually rely on and the real world which they attempt to escape conflict.So this story is powerful and this movie would have been the best if there were not some unnecessary scenes to interrupt the emotion Such as Ah-Dong scenes.
Nevertheless,the performances of two leading actresses are outstanding and effective.Raine Yang as Jade can develop herself from a teen pop star to be a promising starlet.Her character looks simple.Actually,she is still finding real love in the real world.While Isabella Leong as Takeko is the greatest highlight.Sincerely,I have loved this woman instantly when she appears.She looks mysterious and introvert but she is artistic and sensitive.Before being Takeko,a cool girl(or guy) ,Isabella has been several different characters from sweet girl(bug me not) to a psycho(Diary).When she becomes Takeko,she is desirable and subtle.She can portray deep emotion by her manner although speaking mandarin is an obstacle because she usually speaks Cantonese in a lot of HK movies. This movie is able to prove how talented she is but I am surprised why these two didn't get nominated any awards.
Rak haeng Siam (2007)
Don't judge the outside,just open your mind and understand the inside
I remember that when this movie released the trailer ,it convinced many people to misunderstand that it was a cute teenage movie like many blockbusters from GTH like Seasons change ,Dear Dakanda,My girl.Until they saw this movie,many audience felt very upset because it was a gay movie.
Nevertheless,I think this movie is surprisingly great I've ever thought.It's more than a gay movie.It also portrays family problems as well as teenager's.It is a story about two boys Tong and Mew who confront losing.Tong lost his sister so his parents is down falling while Mew lost his grandma who was only his love in all his life. Everyone in this movie needs something vital to fulfill all life. Something is called Love.This movie can show how powerful love is. Love can inspire Mew to write and sing a lovely song.Love can make this movie enjoyable and impressive easily because the powerful love for making this movie.So I admire Madaew,the director who is able to prove how to make effective movies from a social criticizing horror like 13Beloved to a powerful love story.
Besides that,the performances in this movie are excellently outstanding.Especially,the veteran SinJaI as Tong's mom who must encounter several problems bravely such as losing her daughter,alcoholic husband even having realized a shocking truth about her son.She looks inconsiderate and fussy but actually she still love her husband and son deeply. When she is sad,she will cry naturally but makes me hurt so much meanwhile the other actors were able to act very well.I hope that the teen actors in this movie will be promising stars soon.
