The Future Perfect (Argentina) - Official selection of New Directors/New Films 2017 and winner of the Best First Feature prize at the 2016 Locarno Film Festival.This is a narrative/documentary hybrid film about a young Chinese woman who has immigrated to Argentina and takes it upon herself to learn the language.They were all raves about it, so I thought this should be worth my time. My initial reaction is that I didn’t like the numerous anime-ish scenes that the director (or whoever) is so fond of. The harisen, the flying Nodame, and the Street Fighter-like punches are a bit out of place, even in a funny series like Nodame, IMHO.Also, the first few episodes dealt mostly with Chiaki’s angst, and his desire to shut himself in his miseries about his ‘career limbo’ sort of drags the story.Aroused by Gymnopedies (Isao Yukisada 2016) Bad Genius (Nattawut Poonpinya 2017) Birdshot (Mikhail Red 2016) Double Life (Yoshiyuki Kishi 2016) Duckweed (Han Han 2017) Fabricated City (Park Kwang-hyun Gangster's Daughter, The (Chen Mei-juin 2017) Jane (Cho hyun-hoon 2017) Kfc (L Bnh Giang 2017) Long Excuse, The (Miwa Nishikawa 2016) Mad World (Wang Chun 2016) Mole Song, The: Hong Kong Capricio (Takashi Miike 2016) Rage (Lee Sang-il 2016) Single Rider, A (Lee Zoo-young 2017) Soul on a String (Zhang Yang 2016) Split (Choi Kook-hee 2016) Traces of Sin (Kei Ishikawa 2016) Truth Beneath, The (Lee Khoung-mi 2016) With Prisoners (Andrew Young Kwok-kuen 2016) Battle of Memories Leste Chen 2017 China 119 minutes After undergoing a medical procedure to retrieve lost memories, a novelist starts having the recollections of a serial killer.Battle of Memories is a hallucinogenic roller coaster ride built on dream logic, incorporating a stylish visual aesthetic into a tightly woven murder mystery.FEATURES52Hz, I Love You (Taiwan) - CDFF 2017 opens with the latest film from Wei Te-sheng ( and makes a full on musical with this film, named after the whale whose emitted frequency no other species of whale can hear.
