New section: Extreme Asia – Best of the most bizarre Asian movies at Titanic

Filmek/Hideghal2First the Japanese Cold Fish on the menu. Everybody dances to the psychopath murderer Murata’s tune: the story is about his strategy to manipulate a Tropical fish monger and force him to collaboration. 

The Japanese picture shocks through its cruel style, bizarreness and black humour. We can taste it on Friday the 8th at 22:00, and 16th on Saturday at 22:30, at Toldi.

Filmek/Bolondok háza3The animation film The Asylum Session tells the story of a young girl, Hiyoko, who wants to be an artist but her father has other plans. The girl escapes from home to spend the night in a stadium inhabited by the homeless. She meets Akira, the weird guy who can even fly and there’s a big street-art event coming up organised by the homeless, featuring Hiyoko with a giant tableau. The unusual visuals of the movie make it an outstanding work, and the supporting film (Kakurenbo) also contributes to the complete anime-experience (trailer)
Kakurenbo evokes a traditional Japanese child’s game in the setting of modern Tokyo through a breathtaking visual world, demons and a rescue action. (trailer).
The two films are screened both on 10th Sunday at 20:00 at KINO, and 12th Tuesday at 17:00 at Toldi.

Filmek/Tehetetlen düh7The Korean movie Desire to Kill is based on an unusual story. Two almost totally helpless men lie on a hospital bed next to each other and they want to kill each other mutually. Since however neither of them is in the physical condition to do it, they invent all kinds of tricks to assassinate the other one. The perfectly absurd basic situation lets a typical Korean black comedy develop which is has certainly nothing to do with our concept of a comedy. It is screened on Friday 8th at 20:00 at KINO and Monday 11th at 21:00 at Toldi (trailer).

Filmek/Vérző penge4A spectacular history drama: Blades of Blood, which is actually the film adaptation of a popular manga. The story, set in the 16th century South-Korea, is characterised by all kinds of intrigues and spectacular sword duels, set against the backdrop of contemporary Korea and its political tension with Japan. In the director’s chair one of the most successful directors ever, Lee Juun, who also made The King and the Clown. The film was in competition in Korea as well to be nominated for the best foreign Oscar-award. It is screened on Sunday 10th at 17:30 and Wednesday 13th at 18:45 at Uránia. (trailer)
