Black Tie International:
On The Town With Aubrey Reuben -July 12, 2014

On the Town With Aubrey Reuben
Where All the Stars Shine Brightly!
July 12, 2014

07-10-14 Japanese actress Fumi Nikaido received the First Screen International Rising Star Award at the 13th New York Asian Film Festival at the Walter Reade Theater. 165 West 65th St. Wednesday night. 07-09-14
 

 





 
The New York Musical Theatre Festival Gala (NYMTF) at the Liberty Theatre was a delightful event. We had the opportunity to meet many of the talented actors, who will be performing like Bronwyn Whittle from Dublin and Jessica Dyer, both in Madame Infamy. Among the many celebrities were Jack O'Brien (the host), Michael John LaChiusa, Kirsten Sanderson and Michael Musto. It was a very enjoyable evening.

 
The Film Society at Lincoln Center presented press screenings of the 13th New York Asian Film Festival, June 27-July 14. Au revoir l'ete, by Koji Fukada, Japan, 2013, is about a ten day vacation in a seaside town by an aunt and her teenage niece (a wonderful Fumi Nikaido). As the neice meets various friends of the aunt, she becomes aware of the deceits and hypocrisy of the adults. It is a valuable learning experience on her way to maturity, and for the spectator, it is a penetrating view of life among middle class Japanese. It is an excellent, beautifully photographed film.

 
My Man, by Kazuyoshi Kumakiri, Japan, 2014, features another remarkable performance by Fumi Nikaido as a seventeen-old student, who forms an erotic and sensual relationship with her adopted father (Tadanonu Asano). At ten-years of age, she is the only survivor of her family from a tsunami, and is rescued by a lonely relative. They form a family together, but as there life becomes more intense, problems develop. It is a powerful film, and Nikaido attended the screening to receive the First Screen International Rising Star Award. After seeing her in the two films, she definitely deserves it.

 
Aberdeen, by Pang Ho-cheung, China, 2014, is a film about a middle class family, with various problems. They vary from adultery to worries about growing old, and, to what is particularly annoying, about a young daughter being unattractive. Many fine actors portray characters, who are mostly unbelievable and unrealistic. There is also a whale and a lizard, which add nothing to a disappointing film.

 
MoMA presented Lost Persons-Two Films by Caroline Strubbe July 2-8. Lost Persons Area, Belgium/Netherlands/Hungary/Germany, 2009, is the first part of a trilogy that takes place in an industrial wasteland. A foreman, who  maintains power lines on big pylons, the woman he lives with, who runs a trailer cafe for the Hungarian workers, and their weird nine-year-old daughter, who skips school to collect discarded pencils and little stones, are the main characters of this depressing, gloomy story. When an accident hospitalizes the man, a Hungarian worker moves into their trailer cafe. Tragedy follows. There is little dialogue in this overlong film.

I'm the Same, I'm an Other, Belgium/Netherlands/ Hungary. 2013, is the second part of the proposed trilogy, in which we learn that the man and woman have committed suicide and their daughter has disappeared. We see the girl in a car with the Hungarian worker in Ostend, where they cross to England, and arrive at an out of season coastal seaside resort. They rent an apartment, where he locks her inside, while he wanders around. Again, there is little dialogue in this dull, boring, overlong film. The filmmaker has only made these two feature films, and the first won a prize. Wonders never cease.

 
MoMA is presenting ongoing An Auteurist History of Film. Trollflujten (The Magic Flute). by Ingmar Bergman, Sweden, 1975, is an imaginative film of Mozart's opera. An excellent cast sings and acts wonderfully, bringing the opera to life. Although it appears to be filmed on a stage, it has so many cinematic marvels, especially in the second act when winter with snow is transformed into sunny spring. It is a delightful film, which all opera lovers will enjoy.

MoMA is presenting Lady in the Dark: Crime Films from Columbia Pictures, 1932-1957 from July 11-August 4. I Love Trouble, by S. Slyvan Simon, USA, 1947, is delightful detective story, starring Franchot Tone as a private investigator, and a number of beautiful Hollywood screen actresses, including Janet Blair, Janis Carter and Adele Jergens. It has snappy dialogue, unexpected twists in the plot and lots of humor. It is entertaining and thoroughly enjoyable.


 
Film Forum is presenting Femmes Noirs: Hollywood Dangerous Dames July 18-August 7. Too Late for Tears, by Byron Haskins, USA, 1949, is a fine example of the genre. A husband (Arthur Kennedy) and wife (Lizabeth Scott) are driving on a road, when another car tosses a bag with $60.000 in cash into their backseat. She wants to keep the money and spend it on a luxurious life. This is the beginning of a downward spiral, when a blackmailer (Dan Duryea) shows up at her apartment. Murder begins to rule her life, as greed dominates her. It is a grand, old-fashioned movie, highly entertaining, and considered one of Scott's finest roles. It will keep you interested from beginning to end. 

 
Fanny, by Daniel Auteuil, France, 2012, is the second film of a trilogy based on the the writings of Marcel Pagnol. It focuses on Fanny (Victoire Belezy), who is left pregnant, when her fiance Marius (Raphael Personnaz) abandons her and runs off to sea. In order to hide her shame, she agrees to mary a middle-aged Panisse (Jean-Pierre Darrousin), who wants her child to become the heir to his fortune. As I wrote reviewing the first film Marius, the acting is superb, the dialogue is intelligent and realistic, the plot is absorbing and the photography is beautiful. It is a marvelous film experience, and I recommend it highly.
