Etrange Festival 2017

etrange festival 2017

Have you ever been to Etrange Festival in Paris?

This film festival focusing on the bizarre is already celebrating its 23rd birthday. There's only a small bar and not much regarding side activities, but you'll discover films there which you won't easily find somewhere else, both new and in retrospective. It takes place at the Forum des Images, a cinema complex in a shopping mall, and the screenings are divided over three different rooms.

We attended the first two days of Etrange Festival. Here is what we've seen so far.

La Mort Père & Fils


Country: France. Directed by Denis Walgenwitz & Winshluss.

Etrange Festival opened with the world premiere of the excellent and hilarious animated short film La mort Père & Fils. Instead of following traditions by taking up the family trade, the son of the Grim Reaper wants to become a guardian angel. But nothing happens as planned. Each time he saves a life, horrible things occur as a consequence. Based on the comic book Welcome to the Death Club by Winshluss.

Mayhem


Country: USA. Directed by Joe Lynch.

In this low budget, easygoing horror comedy by Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Knights of Badassdom, Everly), a law firm is quarantined, forbidding all exit by employees, even those that have been wrongfully fired. Some of them seem prone to murderous fits. Is this a reaction to the virus or to the lying and backstabbing? Starring Stephen Yuen (The Walking Dead) and Samara Weaving (Ash vs. Evil Dead).

Mon Mon Mon Monsters


Country: Taiwan. Directed by Giddens Ko.

When a gang of bullies discovers a flesh-eating ghoul in the high-school basement, they capture and torture it for their amusement, thus thinning the line between good and evil. It's only a matter of time before the creature's sibling comes to find her sister and take revenge on the teens. From then on, Mon Mon Mon Monsters becomes huge fun, with some impressive scenes on a school bus and in the classroom.

Ugly


Country: Ukraine/Austria. Directed by Juri Rechinsky.

Produced by Ulrich Seidl (Animal Love) and directed by Juri Rechinsky (Sickfuckpeople), Ugly is an almost entirely silent film about mental and physical suffering and asks the question whether there's still love in this world. The focus is on Hanna who is stuck in a hospital bed after a car accident. Her companion, Jura, sits next to her, overwhelmed by guilt; he was the one driving when it happened. Meanwhile, Hanna's mother is dealing with Alzheimer's and what that entails for her relationship. The ultimate feel bad movie.

Replace


Country: Germany/Canada. Directed by Norbert Keil.

One morning, Kyra discovers that her body, which she takes such good care of, is covered with increasing amounts of dead skin. None of her efforts seem to be able to stop this phenomenon, until the day she finds out she can regenerate her skin using that of other people.

Though Norbert Keil co-wrote Replace with Richard Stanley (Hardware, Dust Devil), references to David Cronenberg, Stuart Gordon, and Nicolas Winding Refn are never far away (you can read about his influences here).

Replace was one of the top ten movies of BIFFF 2017.

Purgatoryo


Country: Philippines. Directed by Roderick Cabrido.

Purgatoryo follows a group of people in and around a morgue involved in body trafficking. This critic of Philippine society is meant to be shocking (to the point of necrophilia) but comes across as harmless because of the way director Roderick Cabrido portrays the subject.

Lowlife


Country: USA. Directed by Ryan Prows.

Almost everyone at Etrange Festival seemed to be hailing Lowlife director Ryan Prows as the new Quentin Tarantino. It's obvious where that comes from -- striking characters, fast-paced editing, anecdotal storytelling, memorable dialogue, and excessive violence. Not all of it is outstanding, but there are enough great elements in Lowlife to make for an original and amusing ride.

Etrange Festival still runs through Sunday, September 17th. Some of the films mentioned above will be shown again over the past few days. You can check out the program at www.etrangefestival.com.

Festival address: Forum des Images, Forum des Halles, 2 Rue du Cinéma, Paris 1, France

  6. My husband and I have been having lots of problems living together, he never gives me attention or makes me happy because he has fallen in love with another woman outside our marriage. I tried my best to make sure that my husband leaves this woman but the more I talk to him about it the more he makes me feel sad and unhappy, My marriage started leading to divorce because he no longer gives me attention. I wanted to forget him but i love him and didn't want to lose him. We have been married for years and he is all I could call a true best friend and best in all, the man that handles my problems perfectly, the man that makes sacrifices for my happiness. I wanted him back in my life badly and I was so confused. My Friends told me to buy books about relationships, so I went online for relationship books while I came across a spell caster called Dr Emu. I read testimonies and reviews about him so I contacted him immediately, explained my problems to him. Same day , he casted a spell for me and assured me for 2 days that my husband will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my husband came knocking on my door and begged for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married again, he proposed. I wouldn't stop talking about him. Contact him today if you need his help via email: emutemple@gmail.com and you will see that your problem will be solved without any delay. Website: https://emutemple.wordpress.com/

  9. I am sharing this testimony to partners suffering in their relationships because there is an enduring solution.
    My husband left me and our 2 kids for another woman for 3 years. I tried to be strong just for my kids but I could not control the pains that torment my heart. I was hurt and confused. I needed a help, so i did a research on the internet and came across a site where I saw that Dr Aluya a spell caster, can help get lovers back. I contacted him and he did a special prayer and spells for me. To my surprises, after some days, my husband came back home. That was how we reunited again and there was a lot of love, joy and peace in the family.

  10. DR. JOROMI IS TRULY A POWERFUL MAN. Contacting Dr Joromi is the best thing that has ever happened to me. My husband left me for another woman for the reason which i know nothing about. I tried every means to get him back but to no avail, all my efforts proved abortive. I was even contemplating suicide. On a lucky day when i was browsing the internet, i came across some amazing testimonies about Dr. Joromi on how he has helped a lot of people with his powerful love spells. I contacted him and explained all my problems to him and he assured me that he will help me. He told me what to do and assured me that my man will be back in 12 hours. I obeyed him and followed the instructions and to my Greatest surprise, my man called me in 12 hours time just as Dr. Joromi said. Thank you Dr Joromi. May the good God continue to bless you. If you are in need of help please contact Dr Joromi now on his website: https://www.joromispells.com and you can also reach him with his email: Joromispells@gmail.com and here is his WhatsApp number which you can also use to reach him +2348138695387 Thank you Dr Joromi.
