BLUE MY MIND

Yes! I have been waiting for this movie and frankly I did not think that I would get to see it any time this year but here we are! So, a very big thank you to Amazon for making this possible! And best yet, with Amazon you know there is going to be subtitles and the best in the business you can hope for outside of official DVD/Blu-ray subtitles! So, a toast to you Amazon!

Book-cover impressions I had of BLUE MY MIND was that it would be in lines of those really weird coming of age French mind-bending, BAD-ENDing and depressing types of movies. You know, like Martyrs, Water Lilies, RAW and all that! This movie obviously does have some of the elements in the mentioned movies like the other-worldly/fantastical elements, young leads (coming of age, duh), really moody and girls’ love (the reason we are here of course)!

That being said, there are some things that make you know that yeah, this is no France! Sure it does have some bile-inducing scenes but not on the level of French perfection! Actually, that is the most, if not, the only bad thing about this movie – It is afraid! You dear readers can condense it down to bad editing, well, okay, I think there is some bad editing choices in here too, but there are quite a few scenes that you can feel are going into a certain direction but then they suddenly cut them and on to different scenes! This happened quite a few times it drove me mad to tell the truth!

But these negatives are almost over-shadowed by what I got from the movie overall! I absolutely am in love with Mia and Gianna (Our main girls)! They were so cute together and their development was one that I have not seen before! Also for a change the fantastical elements were not in as euphemism for something but they were actually real! Yeah sure there was the adolescence issue at play with our main lead Mia but it was ‘real’! They were both real, not one being a representation of the other!

LUNA ZOE

And really, the girls that play Mia (Luna Wedler) and Gianna (Zoë Pastelle Holthuizen) are so beautiful that you just have to pause at some scenes just to take their beauty in! Especially Mia! Seriously, I am still having dreams about her eyes! And that beauty I think was needed because of the character she was playing! She needed to be that enchanting! Interestingly, and a great choice, only one female recognised and was allured by her beauty while all other males were instantly enchanted! I have theories about this fact and it plays into how unique Mia and Gianna’s relationship is!

Luna and Zoe were in another movie together before this, but I haven’t watched it yet. It is titled Amateur Teens that came out in 2015. Yeah, good luck finding it without digging up some peculiar results.

So anyway, as the unusual person that I am, we are going to approach the movie in scenes/moments that grabbed my attention, after a brief summary of the overall story! So then, let’s get this thing started… Continue reading

I think someone was going for “Blew My Mind!” but they made a typo and it was too late to change it!

But if we are going for Blue, could this be a sequel to Blue is the Warmest Colour? Sadly I doubt it very much! First of all different countries of origin in addition to different directors in addition to the fantastical element present in BLUE.

Where Blue was French, BLUE is Swiss. Where in Blue our girls were in College, here they are in High School. Where Blue was exactly 3 hours of lesbianism, BLUE is only an hour and 37 minutes (which doesn’t cut it anymore for artistic movies) of teenaging…by which I mean drugs, alcohol and hormoning!

I only pray that they don’t take the “Water Lilies” route! I choose to believe that people nowadays are about that kind of phobia, especially the young Gen! And the trailers being two of a kind, one seemingly straight and the other completely gay, I have missed feelings here but I am going to be there day 1 when it gets released to the public!

This movie has already been released, well, partially released but just like all other arthouse movies, it hits Festivals first then makes its way to the public, especially since this is a new director! But just like “Water Lilies”, this new shining female director also apparently kicked ass and took names! BLUE MY MIND has already won 5 trophies out of the 11 it was nominated for, in the span of 1 year. The wins include Critics Choice Award (Best New Director), Golden Eye (Best Film In Focus), Swiss Film Prize (Best Film, Best Lead Actress – Mia AKA Luna, and Best Screenplay).

So you betcha that this is going to be a treat, well, to those of us who enjoy art house movies! I know they are not for everyone, especially how usually unapologetic they can be but that is the main reason why they have my heart!

And speaking of awards, I just saw that Blue is the Warmest Colour is at 85 Wins out of 94 Award Nominations!!! Like WTF?!

Anyway, back to the movie at hand, I can already see people saying how Mia’s transformation is metaphor for adolescence! because you know, we just can’t have an honest to God fantasy where a girl can actually be a Mermaid…I hope Ms Lisa, our new shinning Director whips their projection to the stratosphere and Mia ends up actually being a real mermaid! But even then I know reviews will still use coming of age in context!

Anyway, this movie to me looks like a mix of SKINS (the UK version of course), Water Lilies and Blue is the Warmest Colour! I am also very intrigued with Mia and Gianna’s relationship (obviously) but I don’t mean in their get together! On the surface it seems pretty cliché, Gianna looks like all those popular kids that get close to the weird girl, only to fuck her over during the course of the film but here in the trailers something is different (for example Mia seems to be the Alpha in this relationship) so we shall see.

Now then, the question is, when are we to get access to this movie?

Jump over for caps and trailers…
