  • ' 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.

  • ' Swallowtail Butterfly '
    — Shunji Iwai

    This is the story of Yentown, a Tokyo ghetto inhabited by immigrants from all over Asia. The story revolves around a group of poverty-stricken immigrants, to whom a sudden twist of fate gives the opportunity to literally make money and thus realize their dreams. Shot with handheld camera, tinted with laughter, violence, sadness and imagination, Swallowtail Butterfly is impossible to be pinned down to a single genre. Juxtaposing the music of Frank Sinatra and Yentown Band is only of the many eccentricities found in the film.

     

  • ' Ricky '
    — François Ozon

     A new chapter in life begins for single mother Katie and her 7-year old daughter Lisa when Katie falls in love with Paco and gives birth to their son Ricky. Extraordinary things begin to develop as Ricky grows up. The bruises on his body lead Katie to suspect Paco abuses their son, when later it is revealed that Ricky is a baby with something extra – wings! If it is an exhausting task to care for a newborn, imagine how much harder it gets when the baby can fly at any second. Bewildering idea, indeed; but as an Ozon film, such imagination somehow feels just right.

     

  • ' 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.

     

     

  • ' Precious '
    — Lee Daniel

     Precious is a compassionate, closely observed study of the traumatized adolescent Clareece Precious Jones who’s abused by her parents – the father, because he rapes and impregnates her; the mother, because she allows him to do so.Challenged by life so harshly that even an adult can hardly handle, Precious is determined to emerge from her abusive childhood and create a future for herself and her babies. Gabby Sidibe, as the title character, gives a heartbreaking yet at the same time empowering performance.

     

  • ' Private Lessons '
    — Joachim Lafosse

    In what is possibly his darkest film to date, the Belgian filmmaker Joachim Lafosse tells a drama that revolves around the conflict between a vulnerableadolescent tennis prodigy and a manipulative adulttutor.Lafosse confronts the issue of child abuse head-on and delivers one of cinema’s most thought-provoking and uncompromising studies in human frailty in recent years. The intelligent screenplay and direction are superbly complemented by strong central performances from the two actors,in particular Jonas Bloquetwho is remarkable in his first screen role.

     

     

  • ' LE SAMOURAI '
    — Jean-Pierre Melville

    Under Melville’s superb direction – many considered this to be his perfect film – Delon plays Jef Costello, a solitary hit-man who lives by his own rules. After killing a nightclub owner, he is pursued by the police as their prime suspect. While Costello manages to provide sufficient alibi to get himself released on a custody, the police are still keeping a close eye on him and his employers have decided to have him killed. With minimum dialogue and facial expression, Delon’s Costello is implacable and emotionless; he is clearly a villain and yet he conveys moral superiority. He is both chilling and sympathetic.

     

     

  • ' 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.
