European Film Market entries, Invisible Waves stills

A spurt of Thai film news over at Twitch. I guess the big one is a link to stills of Pen-Ek Ratanaruang's Invisible Waves at Cinempire. They are absolutely gorgeous.

Next is news on the European Film Market, which is a sidebar to the Berlin Film Festival, starting today.

Invisible Waves is in competition at Berlin (and yes yes yes, it's showing at the freaking Bangkok International Film Festival) And Fortissimo Films is selling it at the Film Market.

But the business of trying to sell crappy Thai films to an unsuspecting European public also is being undertaken.

This brings me back to Twitch, which notes that the Thai Charlie's Angels, Dangerous Flowers, and the teen slasher flick Scared are being sold at the European Film Market by Golden Network. Both are fine products from Sahamongkol Films.

I can recommend neither, but that's just me. I've actually seen Dangerous Flowers and wouldn't want to ever again. The Bangkok Post's Kong Rithdee saw it too, though, and I think he actually enjoyed it. Go figure.

And because I'm not a fan of slasher pics, I was too scared to actually see Scared, but the reports I've heard are far from positive.

Though I probably will go to see Dorm.
