Cinema Ethnics

Saturday, September 23, 2006

This afternoon I went to watch The Banquet. During the show there were so many disruptions that I really wonder if Singaporean really knows cinema ethnics. For the most simple thing you could do is to turn your mobile phone to silent mode. During the show, there were two buzzs from different mobile phones, what a spoilter.

I find the show a bit slow pace, and maybe that is why I can see a lot of people walking in and out of the theatre. Not too sure if they are going out to take phone call or went to the loo, but it's definitely more than the amount that I compare to those English movies.

The chinese paper movie critics were comparing this show to the famous Shakespeare story "Hamlet". Pretty much similar, a pitiful prince who's father (the king) got murdered and wanted to claim revenge on the ouster. However in the show, I couldn't feel any of the excited plot or any scene that arouse my attention. Yes, beautiful scenery, classic sword fighting and pretty actress but the story needs more solid weaving, much of it you have to also think deeper a bit to link up the missing pieces itself.

Maybe I am comparing the prince too much to the script of Hamlet, whereby I remember reading in my secondary school simplified Literature that he is such a pitiful fellow. But this show, I probably don't feel that the prince pitiful, can't felt his hatred towards his father's murderer, can't felt his hatred towards the woman who he loved and became his step mother and empress twice...
