SEX EQUO (2010)

Director | 導演:Werther Germondari, Maria Laura Spagnoli
Italy | 意大利
Colour | 彩色
63 mins | 63分鐘

A moving love story with blow-up dolls; what a man will do in order to have sex with a mysterious stranger; a dominatrix with a very specialized skill – these are just some of the stories in this highly original, surreal and most importantly, very funny collection of tales about sex from Italy. Introduced by Adam and Eve who are suitably obsessed with forbidden fruits, these absurd tales reminded us why sex is the hidden driving force behind the human existence. One of the highlights of the festival and not to be missed.

一個男子深深愛著他的吹氣娃娃;另一 個則扭盡六壬為求與陌生女子的一夜纏綿;還有她那支配對手的獨門偏方‥‥‥ 意大利超現實原創作品《Sex Equo》盡收情色世界之光怪陸離!一切從阿當和夏娃偷嚐禁果開始,荒謬的情節揭示出「性」這隱藏在生存背後的強大動力。「菠蘿」焦點,萬勿錯過!

Haven’t we heard all about it already? How many more documentaries that set out to preach us about the virtue of environmental green living do we really need? Well maybe just one more! Full of slapstick humor, meticulously researched and with boundless energy, “How to Boil a Frog” is a wannabe standup comedian’s one-man crusade against wasteful living. He might or might not be able to make you change your lifestyle but he will surely make you laugh and think throughout the film. One for our future generations.
早聽厭了老生常談和綠色說教?也許⋯⋯可以給他一個機會!幽默諧趣認真求證兼收並蓄,《How to Boil a Frog》單槍匹馬以(笑)聲討形形色色的生活浪費!即使他無法叫你改變生活模式,也定能讓你開懷大笑;或真的給你一記當頭棒喝,來開始為下一代生活好好設想…

The Death I Dreamed of
Director | 導演:Panagiotis Kravvas
Greece| 希臘
Colour | 彩色
87 mins | 87分鐘

As Greece falls into an economic abyss, we have this Greek film which shows a group of young people being slowly sucked into a moral abyss through partaking in Satanism. After a pretty girl met a mysterious handsome boy, a lot of blood spilled. The story maybe familiar but the promising young director makes good use of stylish visual images, editing and music to create a truly sinister atmosphere.

當索女遇上型男,結果可能是血淋淋的!影片來自陷入債務危機的希臘,講述一群年青人因沉迷撒旦崇拜而陷入萬劫不復之地。故事可能似曾相識,但導演以凌厲的影像及出色的配樂,成功營造一個讓人極度不安的詭異領域!

The Debts 大城囍事 (2010)

   

China | 中國大陸

Colour | 彩色
83 mins | 83分鐘

A vain dream cooked with lottery, seasoning with a couple that never gave up wishing rich over gambling, a captain that aspired to bring down the single-child policy, corrupted Mr and Mrs Bureau Head and the Chinese mafia and comrades. This crude bunch had weaved a sitcom of frauds and cheats. “The Debts” reflects today’s China with a good taste of sarcasm, guaranteed to exhale with huge satisfaction!
The whole shooting was done in the Jiangsu Province, so keeping the local dialect as well as revealing this place on screen for the very first time by interlacing exquisitely the customs and culture. Wang Xiao Ming narrated with sophistication, and full humor, thereby making a manifesto of a good story with soul needs the least bankroll!

故事發生於江蘇省X縣:一個彩票夢、 一對夢想一朝發達嘅爛賭夫妻、一位想破壞一孩政策嘅生育計畫隊隊長、一對好色貪財嘅局長夫婦、 仲有大情聖黑社會大佬同惡霸副手⋯⋯呢班五光十色嘅市井人物,構出一套爾虞我詐,光怪陸離嘅處境喜劇。全當地方言拍攝,就地取材,包你拍案叫絕!

王小明以成熟的敘事手法及豐富的幽默感來證明即使沒有資金,只靠獨立山寨精神,同樣可以拍出一個精采故事! 《大城喜事》諷刺今日中國社會怪現象,淋漓盡致,較《讓子彈飛》的隱喻式描繪更大快人心!
