Film Log 7.19.2015 (BiFan 2015 Edition)

Poison Berry in my Brain (2015)

Director: Sato Yuichi
Number of viewings: 1

Comments: Loved it!! A funny rom-com that doesn't do the cliche thing of trying to build a story on a quirky girl stuck between choosing the "right" man to be happy with. It instead asks a more important question "are you happy with yourself?" The romance angle is the least important part of the film. In Poison Berry in my Brain there are no quirky caricatures or good or bad men. It's just an honest and funny film about how people sometimes allow love to kill the part of themselves that felt happiness.

The Missing Piece (2015)

Director: Chiang Feng Hung
Number of viewings: 1

Comments: Quirky comedy. A "Landscape Film", beautiful landscape cinematography, non-threatening characters, low stakes, and an uplifting message.
