Take cover

November 15th, 2010 by Glendyn

I know very little about this film apart from what it’s beautifully raw trailer tells me. Which isn’t much. It makes me ask a lot of questions and gives me very few answers. Which makes me really want to see it! Add it to the top of my 1500.

Is there anything more eerie sounding than an air raid siren? Can anybody translate Vincent Cassell’s monologue?

    Ah! This is the debut by Romain Gavras, the guy who did the Born Free video for MIA. Premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, kind of split audiences but I love it. My hunch is you’d like it a lot, Glendyn.

    “My hair bothered you, so I let it grow. My actions, my attitude disturb you? And nonetheless I will amplify them. And finally, taking in your sarcasm I rest indifferent. So that I may finally become he which I must be. And despite this disgust, this shame…you will love me, for that which I am.”

    Also really looking forward to see this movie!

    Thanks Todd. I knew of the Romain and the MIA clip. Pretty interested in all the work coming out of kourtrajme

    This is one my favourite films clips of all time… so wrong, but so right for some reason.

    Hopefully this gets a screening at the next MIFF. Romain Gavras is one of my favourite directors. I have full faith this film will also be great.
