THINGS EXPERIENCED IN MARCH 2008

I just knew from THE EVENING CLASS’ blog that KITCHEN (2005, Alice Winocour, A+) will be widely distributed. I like this short film very much. It stars Elina Lowensohn, the leading actress of SOMBRE (1998, Philippe Grandrieux, A+++++) and AMATEUR (1994, Hal Hartley, A+). Don’t miss this film. The trouble of a woman in a kitchen in this film makes me think it should be played together with BLOW UP MY TOWN (1968, Chantal Akerman, A+++++).

  2. I’m glad you like Amiina. I don’t know much about this band. I first heard of this band via Mixmag magazine. I just looked for their information on the internet and found that they are from Iceland. I think it is interesting that many interesting bands come from Iceland, such as Sigur Ros, Gus Gus, and the Sugarcubes. 🙂
