  • ' Waltz with Bashir '
    — Ari Folman

    Ari Folman was a soldier, and the animated Waltz with Bashir is a confessional account of his experience as a young soldier during the 1982 Israeli-Lebanese war. Structured like a conventional documentary, with Folman visiting old army friends and piecing together what they saw and remember, he gradually fits together a puzzle with the massacre at the center and his witnesses in concentric rinds at various distances. This is a brilliant piece showing the psychic damage of war.

     

     

  • ' Candy Rain '
    — Chen Hung-i

    A multitude of styles shifting between delicate sensitivity and over-the-top comedy, the four stories in the film are connected by a packet addressed to somebody called Candy Rain. The four relationships depicted here work and fail to work for different reasons, and it goes to show there simply is no fool-proof formula for love. Sandrine Pinna nails the quirkiness of her OCD character, while Karena Lam displays her neurotic comic side.

  • ' 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.

     

  • ' 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.

     

  • ' Lorna’s Silence '
    — Brothers Dardenne

    Lorna is a young Albanian woman who has come to Belgium and married a drug addict named Claudy for Belgian citizenship. Lorna shows no feelings for her “husband”, because she dreams about being with Sokol, her real lover. But Fabio, who has arranged this marriage, has other plans for both Claudy and Lorna…another gritty tale of the modern day Europe from the Dardenne brothers, whose subjective camera rarely leaves Lorna, thus instilling within the audience a psychological kinship with her, helping us to feel the inescapable world in which she travels. Winner of Best Screenplay at Cannes.

     

  • ' Memories of Murder '
    — Bong Joon-ho

    Based on the real-life story of Korea’s first recorded serial killer, Memories of Murder raises some troublesome questions about the nature of justice and the fallibility of investigative police methods before DNA testing. Told almost entirely from the point of view of the police, it is unusually candid about the false starts and utter chaos of this particular case. The film is a tense, old-school crime film with a dark edge that also works as a hilariously funny comedy in which a police officer and his bumbling colleagues arrest and abuse various suspects.

     

     

  • ' Lives of the Others '
    — Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck

     Lives of the Others offers more than a rare and fascinating snapshot of life behind the Berlin Wall.It’s 1984 in East Germany and GerdWiesler, a master interrogator, is tasked to monitor every single detail in the life of playwright Dreyman and his girlfriend. Ironically, his surveillance has led him to sympathize with his targets and Wiesler risks violating the law and jeopardizing his career to protect the couple. The late Ulrich Muhe is magnificent as Wiesler, whose gradual transition from loyal drone to actual human being is where the film is most powerful.

     

  • ' Hear Me '
    — Fen-Fen Cheng

     Tian Kuo goes from place to place delivering rice sets to hungry customers. His daily routine is never the same again the day he falls for Yang Yang, whose sister is practising swimming for Deaflympics. Tian Kuo cannot talk to Yang Yang, but feelings can be expressed and felt through many other ways. Cheng Fen-fen’s sincere portrayal of an unusual puppy love is sure to leave you feeling warm and fuzzy inside.

     

     

  • ' 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.
