The Days Between

    7 March 2009, terribly early in the morning

In De Tag Hinein

I watched the Days Between with Mahi at Cinematheque. The movie is stunning, and certainly one of the best films I’ve seen in recent years. The film reminded me a lot of the work of Wong Kar Wai, only with less dialog and latin music. The cinematography was brilliant. Everything seemed so calculated and pitch perfect. The mood throughout the film is bleak, and this is captured in the way everything is shot. The story is simple enough: a troubled girl develops a relationship with a Japanese exchange student. It’s all very self destructive. It’s a sad film. If you can find it, watch it. I haven’t been so impressed in quite some time.

A write up of The Days Between at Cinematheque.

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
