SIFF 2015 Roundup

Mid-terms are over and I can say I am properly beat! I am enjoying my Gothic Lit class very much, although the workload can be heavy at times. I dropped my Italian Sculpture class, however. I wanted to enjoy it but I just couldn’t get into it. The teacher sounded like she was reading from a script which made the whole thing awful. Instead I am taking an Intro to Architecture class where we are currently studying ancient Roman and Byzantine buildings.

SIFF is starting soon, which is a popular film fest that shows films from all around the world. There is a decent amount of period pieces, although I get the impression they only put dramas in that category this year. This has made it harder to find anything, even things set in recent decades or comedies. Of all the films I saw only Liza the Fox Fairy caught my eye.

It is set in the 70’s, and about a girl who is obsessed with Japanese culture who takes care of the widowed wife of a Japanese consulate. She’s also very unlucky in love, with all of her dates ending horribly due to the fact she might be possessed by a demon. I was going to say it was messed up that a film with a heavy Japanese influence had only one Japanese actor. However, the movie in Hungarian and I can’t even find ethnicity demographics that mention non-European ethnicities, so the point it moot. Its looks like it’ll be a lot of fun.
