Tomorrow the Fantasy Film Fest 2013 starts again here in Stuttgart. I’m not sure if it’s related, but tonight the german tv shows – incredible but true – the 2010 (or was it earlier?) hit “Black sheep”.
Yep, one of the conditions why I moved to Stutti was that I only wanted to be in a city, where I have access to the yearly Fantasy Film Fest! Just call me nuts.
And now the yearly Fantasy Filmfest Nights are coming up. It’s a weekend as a kind of warming-up for the real festival in August.
Now, sadly, everybody whom I tell about the FFF think I’m a violence-loving freak, because «..the FFF shows all kinds of zombies, violence, horror, splatter and the kind…».
What happens when you let Quentin Tarantino make a re-make of the classic Hausu?
You end up with:

I nearly got a shock-of-surprise: “Enter the Void – NOW available on Amazon” !!!
It’s only a pre-order ad: “This title will be released on April 4, 2011“. So I guess I’ll have to be patient for another 6 months. 😦 sob, sob
Yes, this years’ FFF has ended for Berlin, for the other cities it’s still running (or not yet started). In my previous post I have listed the films I had planned, but sadly a few fell off after all, so all-in-all I saw 16 films… Next year better, then with a festival-pass, so I can see all (well, almost all).
As a little (unnecessary) proof that the FFF shows more than just zombies, horror and chainsaw-massacres: here’s a hilarious exempt from しんぼる (Shinboru – Symbol):
Yihaa: tomorrow the yearly Fantasy Film Fest starts again here in Berlin! I got myself all tickets already and since I’m still working on an hourly basis, I can just tell my boss: “Nope, I’m busy” (or even better, as my mother told us when we were young: “Als je me gisteren gehuurd had!”) 😛
Today I treated myself to a new DVD: Waltz with Bashir by Ari Folman. It was one of the jewels on the FFF (Fantasy Film Fest) in Berlin a few years ago. And now, after seeing the film a second time, I remember the first time I saw the film in the cinema: normally during any film, there’s always some noise made in the cinema: people coughing, eating from a bag of crisps, or just whispering to each other. But during the last 5 or 10 minutes of the film there was absolute SILENCE in the cinema…. I’ve never experienced such a thing before!! Very impressive!
The film is shown as a comic (except some parts of it), and that has been done quite brilliantly. I won’t tell you the whole story or the ending of the film, of course. But let me just tell you I consider this film as a basic part of any general education, no matter what your beliefs or what politic side you’re on. Just be aware: it is not a family-movie! I cannot see the film without shedding a few tears….
How he has entangled the psychology, the fears and the most-private feelings in the film, I find that very impressive…
