POLL 54: IN THE NAME OF THE FILM

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 6:56 pm

This is about a poll in my bilingual blog at http://celinejulie.blogspot.com

 

 

My poll 54 is inspired by the latest videos of Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook. I love both her videos, and their long, unique titles. You can see the titles of her six latest videos here:
http://celinejulie.blogspot.com/2009/04/araya-rasdjarmrearnsooks-partial.html

I think some film titles lack imagination, such as GHOST, GHOSTS, THE GHOST, A GHOST, or something like that; or LOVE LETTER, LOVE LETTERS, THE LOVE LETTER, or something like that. These film titles make it very difficult to search for its information on the internet.

I also have problems remembering which Yasujiro Ozu’s films I have seen. Have I seen EARLY SPRING, or EARLY SUMMER, or THE END OF SUMMER, or LATE AUTUMN, or LATE SPRING?

Araya’s film titles inspire me to make a list of these film titles that I like.

I LOVE THESE FILMS AND THEIR TITLES. WHICH FILM TITLES DO YOU LIKE?

1.ALICE DOESN’T LIVE HERE ANY MORE (1974, Martin Scorsese, USA)

2.CELINE AND JULIE GO BOATING (1974, Jacques Rivette, France)

3.A CONFUCIAN CONFUSION (1994, Edward Yang, Taiwan)

4.DON’T USE MICROWAVE TO WARM EGGS OR ELSE THEY WILL EXPLODE! (2005, Tossapol Boonsinsukh, Thailand)

5.THE DUMB DIE FAST, THE SMART DIE SLOW (1991, Manop Udomdej, Thailand)

6.GARM (LUST) (กาม) (1978, Prince Chatrichalerm Yukol, Thailand)

7.THE GOALIE’S ANXIETY AT THE PENALTY KICK (1971, Wim Wenders, West Germany)

8.IN THIS CIRCUMSTANCE, THE SOLE OBJECT OF ATTENTION SHOULD BE THE TREACHERY OF THE MOON (2009, Araya Rasdjarmrearnsook, Thailand)

9.JEANNE DIELMAN, 23 QUAI DU COMMERCE, 1080 BRUXELLES (1975, Chantal Akerman, Belgium)

10.JOAN OF ARC OF MONGOLIA (1989, Ulrike Ottinger, West Germany)

11.THE LAST TIME I COMMITTED SUICIDE (1996, Stephen Kay, USA)

12.LIFE AS A FATAL SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASE (2000, Krzysztof Zanussi, Poland)

13.LOVE IS COLDER THAN DEATH (1969, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, West Germany)

14.THE POSITIVELY TRUE ADVENTURES OF THE ALLEGED TEXAS CHEERLEADER-MURDERING MOM (1993, Michael Ritchie, USA)

15.PRENOM CARMEN (1983, Jean-Luc Godard, France)
I think it is very interesting that the word PRENOM here can mean both FIRST NAME and BEFORE THE NAME.

16.THE SECOND AWAKENING OF CHRISTA KLAGES (1978, Margarethe von Trotta, West Germany)

17.UNPRONOUNCABLE IN THE LINGUISTIC IMPERIALISM OF YOURS (2008, Ratchapoom Boonbunchachoke, Thailand)

18.WHEN A WOMAN ASCENDS THE STAIRS (1960, Mikio Naruse, Japan)

19.WHO WISHES TO REPRESENT AN ANGEL, MAKES A BEAST (2007, Christine Laquet, video installation)

20.YESTERDAY’S TOMORROW (1978, Wolfgang Staudte, West Germany)
I saw this film many years ago, but I am still not sure if the film title means YESTERDAY IS TOMORROW or THE TOMORROW OF YESTERDAY. I guess it is the latter. The storytelling in this film jumps back and forth between time, so I think this film title really suits the film.

The German title of this film is ZWISCHENGLEIS, and sometimes this film is titled THE MIDDLE RAIL.

You can cast multiple votes.

Apart from the 20 titles above, I also love the following films and their titles:

21.THE ALL-ROUND REDUCED PERSONALITY – REDUPERS (1977, Helke Sander, West Germany)

22.ARTISTES AT THE TOP OF THE BIG TOP: DISORIENTATED (1968, Alexander Kluge, West Germany)

23.THE DISCREET CHARM OF THE BOURGEOISIE (1972, Luis Bunuel, France)

24.EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF AND GOD AGAINST ALL (1974, Werner Herzog, West Germany)

25.THE FUTURE IS NOT WHAT IT USED TO BE (2002, Mika Taanila, Finland)

26.LET’S SCARE JESSICA TO DEATH (1971, John D. Hancock, USA)

27.THE MURDERERS ARE AMONG US (1946, Wolfgang Staudte, Germany)

28.ONCE YOU’RE BORN YOU CAN NO LONGER HIDE (2005, Marco Tullio Giordana, Italy)

29.WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN (1988, Pedro Almodovar, Spain)

I also love the following film titles because the films show the opposite of the titles:

30.LE BONHEUR (1965, Agnes Varda, France)

31.LIFE IS A LONG QUIET RIVER (1988, Etienne Chatiliez, France)

32.THINGS YOU CAN TELL JUST BY LOOKING AT HER (2000, Rodrigo Garcia)

–There are many Thai films which I haven’t seen, but I found their titles very interesting. These Thai films include:

(The English titles below are not official English titles. I just tried to translate their titles from the Thai ones.)

1.CAPTIVE HUSBAND (ผัวเชลย) (1985, Permpol Choei-aroon)
Starring Mai Charoenpura

2.EMOTION MARKET (ตลาดอารมณ์) (1988, Suwit Chutipong) starring Nataya Dangbu-nga

5.THE GODMOTHER (เจ้าแม่) (1976, Prince Tippayachat Chatchai)

10.I AM NOT A PROSTITUTE (ดิฉันไม่ใช่โสเภณี) (1993, Payung Payagool) starring Tida Teerarut

11.LOVELY FEMALE ANIMAL (สัตว์สาวผู้น่ารัก) (1982, Somdate Suntipracha)
Starring Linda Katuncharoen

12.THE LUST OF SAINTS (ตัณหานักบุญ) (1975)
Starring Sombat Metanee, Aranya Namwong, Mayurachat Muenprasittiwate, Piathip Kumwong

13.MAGIC FOR GETTING A HUSBAND (มนต์เรียกผัว) (1979, Niyom Tuntiwategool) starring Arunya Namwong

14.MALE PROSTITUTES (ผู้ชายขายตัว) (1974, Suriyon Thongduangdee)

16.MARY JANE HARPER CRIED LAST NIGHT (เธอร้องไห้เมื่อคืนนี้) (1987, Permpol Choei-aroon)
The Thai title of this film can be literally translated as SHE CRIED LAST NIGHT, but the website Thaifilmdb.com lists the English title of this film as MARY JANE HARPER CRIED LAST NIGHT. So I guess this film may be adapted from MARY JANE HARPER CRIED LAST NIGHT (1977, Allen Reisner, USA).

17.OUTSIDER HUSBAND (ผัวนอกคอก) (1980, Samarn Thongsupsin)
Starring Wasana Sittiwate

18.A SPY WITH IRON SUSPENSORY (สายลับกระจับเหล็ก) (1976, Sanaan Kraprayoon)

20.TEMPORARY HUSBAND (ผัวชั่วคราว) (1987, Siwadol Bunnak)
Starring Sinjai Hongthai

21.THEREFORE, THAT’S RIGHT (เพราะฉะนั้น นั่นน่ะซี) (1992, Anugool Jarotok)

22.TOMORROW I WILL LOVE YOU (พรุ่งนี้ฉันจะรักคุณ) (1989, Root Ronnapop) starring Warut Woratham

23.WHAT THE HELL (อะไรกันวะ) (1978, Loh Tok)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3580/3488689216_b648bde057_o.jpg


24.THE WOMAN WHO EATS HER HUSBANDS (คนกินผัว) (1985, Pimpanont) starring Pusarut Dara

25.YELLOW-LABELED MAN (ผู้ชายป้ายเหลือง) (1987, Rerngsiri Lim-aksorn) starring Wisarut Gateprasit

–WHICH ACTRESSES/SINGERS DO YOU LIKE?

1.Janet Khiew
She got 7 votes, or 53 %.

2.Deborah Harry
+Jane Birkin
Each of them got 5 votes, or 38 %.

4. Nico
+Vanessa Paradis
Each of them got 4 votes, or 30 %.

+Noriko Sakai
+Rie Miyazawa
+Yoko Minamino
Each of them got 1 vote, or 7 %.

20.Hiroko Yakushimaru
She got 0 vote.

–My own vote is for Anita Mui, Deborah Harry, Janet Khiew, Liza Minnelli, Marlene Dietrich, Miho Nakayama, Miki Imai, Nico, Patsy Kensit, Sandrine Kiberlain, and Yoko Minamino.

I vote for Anita Mui, Marlene Dietrich, and Sandrine Kiberlain because I like their acting. I vote for Deborah Harry, Janet Khiew, Liza Minnelli, Miho Nakayama, Miki Imai, Nico, and Patsy Kensit because I like their songs. I vote for Yoko Minamino because I like both her acting and her songs.

–I’m a little bit surprised that Hiroko Yakushimaru got zero vote, because I think her voice is very sweet. I like her voice and the song KATARI TSUGU AINI very much. I’m very glad that this song is available in Youtube, because my cassette tape containing this song has beeen damaged by fungi.

I’m not sure if Hiroko is a good actress or not. As for her films, I have seen THE TERRIBLE COUPLE (1980, Shinji Somai, A-), TWINKLE (1992, Joji Matsuoka, A-), and ALWAYS – SUNSET ON THIRD STREET (2005, Takashi Yamazaki, C+).

–I like Janet Khiew very much. One song of her that I love is THE
BORROWERS OF THE BANK OF AGRICULTURE (ลูกหนี้ธ.ก.ส.).

You can listen to this song here:
http://www.esnips.com/doc/fbff77f4-393f-421e-a113-649abfcf2db2/ลูกหนี้-ธ.ก.ส.

This is the lyrics of the song translated by me:

BOA Bank of Agriculture
We, the farmers, can depend on it
We can get a mortgage on our own land and rice field
So that we can get the money flow

To be in debt is an ordinary thing
It’s not a shame at all to have debts
We still visit each other
We don’t look down on those who have debts
Look around you, they are all the borrowers of BOA

Thank you Thank you Thank you BOA
You are the saint You are the saviour You are so kind You are noble
Every member of the poor
You can borrow as much as you can
Contact BOA, so that it can help us

BOA Bank of Agriculture
Very reliable bank
This bank is always there for us
Whenever we are broke
We use our title deed as collateral
Whenever we have money
We pay our debts to BOA

–Miki Imai is one of my most favorite singers of all time.

JE SUIS D’UNE GENERATION DESENCHANTEE

Filed under: Uncategorized — celinejulie @ 8:26 pm

I love the music video DESENCHANTEE by Mylene Farmer. It is directed by Laurent Boutonnat. This music video made me cry, especially the scene in which the child massacred the guards.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AGxPrIhs4Lo

This is the lyrics:

“Nager dans les eaux troubles
Des lendemains
Attendre ici la fin
Flotter dans l´air trop lourd
Du presque rien
A qui tendre la main

Si je dois tomber de haut
Que ma chute soit lente
Je n´ai trouvé de repos
Que dans l´indifférence
Pourtant, je voudrais retrouver l´innocence
Mais rien n´a de sens, et rien ne va

Tout est chaos
A côté
Tous mes idéaux : des mots
Abimés…

Je cherche une âme, qui
Pourra m´aider
Je suis
D´une géneration désenchantée,
Désenchantée

Qui pourrait m´empêcher
De tout entendre
Quand la raison s´effondre
A quel sein se vouer
Qui peut prétendre
Nous bercer dans son ventre

Si la mort est un mystère
La vie n´a rien de tendre
Si le ciel a un enfer
Le ciel peut bien m´attendre
Dis moi,
Dans ces vents contraires comment s´y prendre
Plus rien n´a de sens, plus rien ne va.”

This is the lyrics translated by Google:

“Swimming in troubled waters
Tomorrow
Wait by the end
Floating in the air too heavy
Of almost nothing
Who reach out

If I do get high
May my fall be slow
I have found rest
That the indifference
However, I would like to regain innocence
But nothing has meaning, and nothing will

Everything is chaos
Next
All my ideals: words
Damaged …
I am looking for a soul, which
May help

I am
In a disenchanted generation,
Disenchanted

Who could help but
Hear any
When reason collapses
How to turn within
Who can claim
We rocked in her belly

If death is a mystery
Life is not soft
If Heaven has a hell
The sky may well expect
Tell me,
In these headwinds how
Nothing has meaning, nothing does.”
