Top of the month October 2009: Das Weiße Band (The White Ribbon)
Grow up evil, children!
Why should you go see The White Ribbon by Michael Haneke, right now?
– Because of the sumptuous black & white and aesthetic photography.
– Because of the frightening children as if they were coming from an episode of The Twilight zone or Village of the Damned… without an once of fantastic.
– Because it’s one of the best screenplay pointing out the link between education and growth of terrorism of any kind, and the consequences that (may) follow.
Runners up :Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs by Phil Lord & Chris Miller and Funny People by Judd Apatow.
(not to mention Le Syndrome du Titanic by Nicolas Hulot & Jean-Albert Lièvre and Mademoiselle Chambon by Stéphane Brizé)
