Kim van Kooten,
Martijn is obsessed with his younger sister Daantje and visits her to make a documentary about her. He manages to invade Daantje's life with his video camera, but soon unresolved issues from a distant past come to the surface.
While camping in France, Dutch friends Eric and Eddy fall in love with two women. Eric talks to Silke, a Ugandan studying medicine in the Netherlands. She tells him about her life and asks about the book he's writing: it's the story of his love affair with Reza. He tells her the story and we see it in flashbacks: Reza explodes into his boring life, she's unpredictable, their relationship becomes intense. She moves in with him, pushes him to write instead of studying law, then jealousy and fits of bizarre self-destruction become part of her quixotic moods.Written by
So I went to see the movie "Ik ook van jou". I thought it was quite nice. The story unfolds rather jerky here and there, but I think Ruud van Hemert (the director) has a great eye for pictures. Some of the camerawork and lighting is really awesome.
But what surprised me most was the use of music composed by the collective "Normally Invisible": The intro-sequence was rather shocking and unconventional, then it switches over to 'standard' John Williams type of scoring. Then it reveals more depth to the characters as the story moves along. The composers are obviously not afraid of using breakbeats, dark ambient spheres, experimental sound design and romantic 'classic' scoring.
One of the most impressive scenes was Rezas birthday party where the music really hits you as it morphs from hectic drum'n'bass/metal to transparent sounddesign ending in a rather 'esoteric' sphere... just amazing!
I can only say that these guys know what they are doing. Keep an eye out for "Normally Invisible" as they seem to perform their stuff live as well....
Oh yeah, and go see the movie! (preferrably in a theatre with good sound)
