Cold hands, warm heart

Air Doll   Offscreen 2010 mini logo reviews fantasy drama comedy Hirokazu Koreeda already gained critical acclaim with splendid features like ‘After Life’ (1998) and ‘Nobody Knows’ (2004). In his latest, Air Doll, Korean actress Du-Na Bae (‘Sympathy For Mr. Vengeance’ & ‘The Host‘) portrays an inflatable sex doll that grows a heart – technically, it’s something closer to a soul and a conscious – leaves her natural bedroom habitat and sets off into the city to discover what life has to offer (and very much unaware of it all). She finds her way to a video store. By far not the worst place to start with your first job.

An unworldly piece of cinematographic art

Amer   Offscreen 2010 mini logo reviews horror fantasy drama We all go through cycles in life. And we also grow and evolve outside these cycles. We leave paths laid out for us, we seek adventure. We also revisit places we came from. In the real world, and in our minds. In a way, this is what Amer is about. It is to me. But as a film, it’s something else.
