Studio Night (August 4th): Nihon Eiga!

This Sunday we'll take our first focused (and long overdue) look at Japanese cinema with English-subtitled selections that span nearly 60 years. If you'd like to help us choose the specific one we'll be watching, just make sure you arrive by 7:15PM.

We're in the basement of the Hong Kong Brewhouse, our usual venue, which provides plenty of food and drink for you to enjoy with the film.

    this movie is great and very disturbing at the same time.

    Very artistic direction with flashbacks, cancellation of time and space, frozen shots, and intersections of confessions that propel the narrative. Highly dramatized emotional turmoil of the teacher, 7th graders and the mother that suspends (dis)belief. The film also arouses sympathy, to a certain extent, concerning the children whose insecurities, traumatic experience from abandonment and bullying, and yearning for recognition have resulted in madness as well as indifference to the value of human life. The fact that the teacher has not really “killed” anyone exactly as she claimed, in her revenge, is quite thought-provoking, in terms of the intense psychological forms that the revenge takes, within her designation of “reforming” the young minds.

      The deafening cries on one hand represent the horror that the characters face, on the other hand, are inadequate, despite their high decibels, to efface the pain in witnessing the loss of loved ones as the characters, including the passionate Terada, are rendered feeble to violence and cruelty.

    Should be at another meetup event that finish around 6 pm in Sai Kung, so I don't think I can catch in time. Not good at rushing around in HK, but I am pretty good at that in SG, as I can communicate better in SG with Taxi Drivers.
    Next time then.
