Curfew/Before I Disappear Films

At the lowest point of his life, Richie gets a call from his estranged sister, asking him to look after his eleven-year old niece, Sophia, for a few hours.

Watched a really good short film Curfew (in fact it won the Oscar) and its matching feature length film adaptation Before I Disappear thanks to the great recommendation from shipcestuous. Read her commentary on the film set on her wordpress blog here.

A wealthy Manhattan family’s inability to cope with the suicide of their eldest daughter sends them into a downward spiral of drugs, alcohol and sexual taboos that threatens to destroy them.

I was really excited to see this film. Just the title alone grabbed my attention! I thought, that looks intriguing – and it was. It was a great film on many levels. I figured the film would have incest in it (judging from the title) but I had no idea how well it would live up to my expectations, and that they would be such great characters.

The best way I can describe this film is The Cement Garden meets The Borgias. Without giving too much away, it does not have your typical tragic ending that often happens in “incest” movies. They are not doomed or ill fated like what happens in movies like Dead Fall, or Innocent Lies. In fact the ending actually leaves room for a relationship between the two to grow even more, even though it may not be psychically. But what am I telling you the ending for without delving into a bit more of what the film is about.

Ma Mere (2004)

Ma Mere is a French film that explores incest, sadomasochism, love, family dysfunction, and nebulous moral values of conflicted adolescents caught in the web of sexual investigation.Based on George Bataille’s posthumous and controversial novel: When his father dies, a young man is introduced by his attractive, amoral mother to a world of hedonism and depravity. It is filled with difficult scenes, ideas and certainly is not a film for the faint of heart or spirit. It features two French actors that are not shy when it comes to incest in film. Isabelle Huppert, an amazing actress, has been in La Pianist and Louis Garrel The Dreamers.
