    導演:Abraham Polonsky
    主演:尊加菲路、瑪利溫莎
    講者:Howard Au, Kelvin Lui

    七月四日,不僅是美國國慶,亦是黑道律師Joe Morse (尊加菲路飾)將要上位的大日子!捉住了當日百姓們都喜歡投注非法彩票號碼776(美國立國於1776年)的心理,他聯同黑幫大佬Ben Tucker 控制派彩結果,意圖令多間地下錢莊破產,繼而壟斷整個地下彩票業。豈料,他哥哥Leo Morse正是其中一間錢莊的老闆,為了金錢、為了名利,Joe 不惜要脅其兄跟他一起作非法勾當。路越走越是泥足深埳,Joe 能夠掌握得到百姓的心理,又能否掌握到自己的結局?

  • ' Drifting Flowers '
    — Zero Chou

    Through three stories, director Zero Chou explores three kinds of love. The young Meigo lives with her blind sister the lounge singer Ging. While the androgynous accordionist Chalkie falls for Ging, Meigo’s young heart beats for Chalkie. Lily loves a certain woman, but she is married to Yen, who loves men. In their peculiar way, the two takes care of each other and form a strong bond. The last story concerns the young Chalkie and how she eventually understands her sexuality.

  • ' Synecdoche New York '
    — Charlie Kaufman

     Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener play a pair of married artists, living in Schenectady, NY. She is a visual artist, and he is a director. The marriage is coming apart. She sometimes wishes he would die. In fact, he might be dying. He has a succession of alarming symptoms. He is working on a novelty production of “Death of a Salesman”. This is not a film about the theater, although a theater director is an ideal character for representing the role Kaufman thinks we all play. In its strange, comic and ultimately Kaufmanesque way, Synecdoche New York deals with the biggest terrors and issues of life: loneliness, sickness, futility, death.

     

     

  • ' Seraphine '
    — Martin Provost

    Seraphine de Senlis, an aging, overweight, penniless house cleaner in a small French town, was also a painter who believed she was channeling divine messages. The fruits and flowers she painted at first look merely decorative, but that on closer examination are charged with a marvelous and unsettling power. Martin Provost’s interpretation begins from the point just before her discovery, in the early 1910s, by the German critic and collector Wilhelm Uhde. Yolande Moreau’s passionate and fascinating performance won her a Cesar (Best Actress), one of the seven Cesars Seraphine was awarded.

     

  • ' Black Ice '
    — Petri Kotwica

     Black ice is a reference to that almost invisible layer of ice that forms on roads and can send you spinning into a snowbank when you least expect it. Relationships are a bit like that in the Finnish director Petri Kotwica’s third feature, which won five major Finnish Jussi awards including Best Actress for OutiMäenpää as Saara, a gynecologist who engineers her way into her husband’s affair.By conjuring an atmosphere as chilling as the frozen landscape, Kotwica vigilantly turns soap opera material into an engaging psychological thriller.

  • ' The Quiet Family '
    — Kim Ji-woon

     Kim Ji-woon’s 2003 success A Tale of Two Sister probably takes much reference from this first feature of his: a house isolated in the countryside, a somewhat dysfunctional family with two sisters, and the suspicion of the existence of something supernatural…featuring some eclectic soundtracks, The Quiet Family possesses a fine, mordant wit while its narrative progresses through a succession of unlikely events: accidents, identity confusions, and bodies piling up. The humour, dark and decidedly deadpan, is also built from the interaction between the family members.

     

     

     

  • ' Exam '
    — 史都華海澤丁

    Sequestered in a room, eight candidates are asked to complete the final test for a mysterious job. In Reservoir Dogs like fashion, each is given a nickname according to skin/haircolour. Hazeldine uses his characters to explore how people turn against each other in pressurized environments. Razor sharp editing of the events that unfold in a slick, pristine exam room bathed in ever-changing colours, Hazeldine’s debut is intriguing and nerve-wrecking. The Apprentice? That’s so Disneyland.

     

  • ' Soundless Wind Chime '
    — Kit Hung

    Nominated for the 2009 Berlin Film Festival Teddy Award, Soundless Wind Chime chronicles the story between Ricky, a Chinese, and Pascal, a Swiss. Like any other couple they struggle though good times and rough patches. Years after the relationship ended, Ricky goes to Switzerland and encounters Ueli who looks just like Pascal. As this new relationship grows, we also learn about what really happened to Pascal and Ricky….

     

  • ' Mother '
    — Bong Joon-ho

    Mother poses a sinister corollary in its tale of a parent’s unwavering devotion to her child. After a night of drinking, Do Joon, an intellectually-challenged young man, attempts to pick up a young high school girl walking home alone. Shockingly, the next day Do Joon is arrested for the girl’s murder. His overbearing but deeply loving mother will go to pursue justice for her son whom, she believes, has been wrongly convicted of murder. Reminiscent of Alfred Hitchcock’s quirkier and more offbeat films, Mother is an intense, witty, and engaging psychological thriller with enigmatic characters.

     

     

  • ' Hidden '
    — Michael Haneke

     The premise of this quietly terrifying film is fiendishly simple: Parisian couple Georges and Anne start receiving videotapes of their home from an anonymous stalker. But there are many layers to this mystery. While some are traced back to Georges’ childhood, some are tied directly to France’s colonial past. Part paranoid thriller, part political allegory, Haneke raises questions of guilt, responsibility and complacency and won Best Director at Cannes 2005.
