    甫從一開首的炸彈特寫,我們便跟着計時器上的三分鐘,進入一個充滿著InevitabilityIrreversibility的黑色電影世界。《歷劫佳人》發生在墨西哥與美國兩國邊境之間,講述墨西哥緝毒員Vargas(查爾登希士頓飾)與一直受人景仰的美國警探Quinlan(奧遜威爾斯飾)合作,嘗試找出一樁汽車爆炸案的元兇。雖然Quinlan鎖定元兇為爆炸案死者女兒的秘密情人,Vargas卻思疑Quinlan為求破案而捏造犯罪證據。與此同時,毒梟黑道Grandi一家綁架了Vargas的妻子,並企圖拉攏Quinlan同流合污。到底Quinlan是正直還是沉淪的警探?兩地國境的差異,除了突顯角色們在身份、經濟和政治上的千絲萬縷,更為人性善惡定了一條模糊邊界。

  • ' The Science of Sleep '
    — Michel Gondry

    French filmmaker Michel Gondry proves that his eccentric imagination remains intact even without Charlie Kaufman (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) as a collaborator. This is a love story involving Stephane and Stephanie, both aspiring artists working at menial jobs. Whimsical and irrepressibly inventive, the film is dominated by its extraordinary dream sequels expressed in stop-motion animations that echo Terry Gilliam. Call it weird, but you can’t help loving it.

     

     

  • ' 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.

     

  • ' 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.

  • ' 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.

     

  • ' 20, 30, 40 '
    — Sylvia Chang

    Three different women, at three different stages in their lives, allow their relationships to live out in Taipei – an aspiring pop star, a flighty air hostess and a flower shop owner. Sylvia Chang,has taken stories created by the three leads and created a film of refreshingly non-intertwining stories.Their conflicts vary, but touch on very basic, common themes: identity, belonging, the quest for companionship, and simply getting by in the mixed-up modern world. 

     

     

  • ' Oasis '
    — Lee Chang-dong

    Oasis was the second collaboration (the first being Peppermint Candy) of Lee Chang-dong, Sol Kyung-gu and Moon So-ri. This is a wildly unconventional love story between an ex-con and a woman suffering cerebral palsy. Both marginalized by society, they find acceptance in each other. Moon So-ri received the prestigious Marcello Mastroianni Award for best young actor at the 2002 Venice International Film Festival for her astonishing portrayal of the painfully contorted, grimacing Gong-ju whose perfectly normal emotions and desires are not dampened by her crippling affliction.

     

  • ' Transamerica '
    — Duncan Tucker

    In about a week’s time, pre-operative transsexual Bree will undergo the final operation that will complete her transition from a man to a woman. Just at this critical time, she learns that she has a son named Toby, and he is in trouble. Going all the way to New York, Bree bails Toby and the two of them set off on a trip back to Los Angeles, without Toby realising that Bree is his biological father. As Bree, Felicity Huffman’s awkward mix of male/female mannerisms is so on-target. Her edgy, raw, and carefully contained performance made her winner of the Golden Globe Best Actress award.

     

     

  • ' 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.

     

     

     

  • ' Greenberg '
    — Noah Baumbach

    Noah Baumbach’s favorite terrain is deconstructing life’s emotional ups and downs with characters so narcissistic and self-delusional they make everyone uncomfortable. In Greenberg, he finds the ugly selfishness of neurosis. Playing a rarely seen non-comic role, Ben Stiller is Roger Greenberg, who once dumped his band, fled Los Angeles and went to New York. Now, recovering from a breakdown, Greenberg returns to LA. As he house-sits his brother’s house and looks after the dog, he meets the family’s assistant Florence and the two develop a relationship that can be defined neither as friendship or romance.
