    ROSTREPO double bill:

    Cilaos (2016 short)



    Slave rhythms from Reunion Island


    La Bouche (2017 short)

    Incredible music centred on Red Devil from Guinea in a semi-autobiographical film.

    Watched this last night. It's set a week before the wall came down in Berlin. Very physical movie. The director, David Leitch, is an actor, stuntman, writer, producer, stunt coordinator and film director. The fight scenes in this movie, and it is loaded with them, look great on film. None of the fast cutting/editing like in the "Bourne" movies. The stunt coordinator used by Leitch, knowing the movements of the actors, filmed the fight scenes with a hand held camera right in the middle of the action, moving in and out of the way to put the viewer "right there". The fights had very long takes and the moves were all combat orientated (no wasted movement, only front kicks with the foot never going higher than the hip, etc.). If you like action movies with good, realistic fight choreography, you will like this. It was much better than I expected.
    I love music. I want music. I need music.

    Tulse: "Estonian child from a decaying inner city area is forced into sexual slavery in Stockholm then subsequently kills herself."
    I wonder what is happening in Scandinavia. If one takes art (movie, literature) as a window into the nordic subconscious mind than one must be horrified what is happening there. Incest, rape, violence, drugs, murder, molestation etc. - 90% of scandinavian movies are about this. Does it mean something?

    Anyway, I watched The Shape of Water by Guillermo del Toro (2017) and Ghost In The Shell (2017)

    Watched this a few days ago. Not seen it for years. A very funny film, I did indeed laugh out loud:



    Watched this last night.

    This has a decent premise, but it goes downhill very quickly.

    Yes, it is the same with their (excellent) TV serials and also Scandinavian Noir books.

    I'm not sure what it means, but I doubt that Scandinavians are any darker than the rest of us. Perhaps it is merely an artistic movement that has gathered momentum, or that Scandinavians are more liberated than us so they can deal head on with these taboo subjects.

    You raise an interesting point Jacck. it would be good if our Scandinavian Members would drop by and offer their perspective.

    Also, there´s a simple commercial/exports trend in it.

    We do have our share of sugary dramas a la Hollywood, but luckily there´s a tradition for political and social realism and critique that fights against this, and this quite often.

    Violence statistics rather contradict the Nordic noir style, everyday boredom (and work) overall prevails. But of course, social and family-related tensions exist, beneath the surface, as well.

    Only those that go on export. The most popular Swedish films in Sweden are comedies.
