Ode to Nothing

Sunday 10 November

13:15 - 14:47 Trianon 2

Sonya (Marietta Subong) — a former maid, now largely ignored by those around her — is a living ghost, struggling to keep her family-owned funeral home afloat. Lonely and constantly bothered by an insistent creditor, she wanders inside her own home, leaning heavily on her favorite Chinese song recorded on a broken cassette tape, barely coping with the hardship of the passing hours… That is, until an unexpected corpse lands, rather illicitly, at her footstep, which mounts the beginning of an unusual friendship. Slow but mesmerizing. Melancholic but funny. Ode to Nothing is a special experience in the vain of A Ghost Story by David Lowery (which played at LIFF two years ago), and deservedly won big at the QCinema awards in The Philippines.

Well, you know, just another World War II satire-comedy about a German boy struggling to confront his own nationalism with the help of his completely insane imaginary friend, Adolf Hitler. It’s one of those things that is right up Taika Waititi’s alley. And we. Can’t. Wait.

The compelling story of Judy Garland, who was so much more than just the girl from The Wizard of Oz. She’s played by Renée Zellweger, who, in turn, proves once again that she is so much more than just Bridget Jones.
