“I was born out of a fortuitous encounter between a flower and a butterfly”. Poets make even the worst of things (i.e. rape) sound amazing! The narrator is narrating his life’s story in the most euphemised, naive, surreal, benign, and subjective way, as if the director was himself the camera, framing the world from inside a box.This is cinema at its best! Incredibly poetic and well shot, without becoming pretentious.
I doubt I'll see anything more strange, more imaginative or more beautiful this year. Rather wonderful and great to see Elina Löwensohn again after seeing her first many years ago in films by the inspiring Hal Hartley.
Incredible, dark and surreal fairy tale that stays true to Mandico's style but also manages to capture the essence of Walerian Borowczyk's work... Beautifully poetic, gorgeously shot in black & white, and complemented by excellent sound work and music, which add to the mysterious ambience. One of the most memorable short films I have watched, a true avant-garde, and what a wonderful tribute to Borowczyk!
If someone ever makes a biopic about me, can it please be like that? It was my first Mandico, and I was in love after the first few minutes. Svankmajer, Khytilova, Tarr, and more: bizarrely entertaining, strangely beautiful, and so perfectly disgusting. I actually did not think about Kobo Abe's Box Man which is an obvious connection, because the similar subject is handled just as well but differently.
