my 2009 Asia Filmfest wrap-up

asiaff2009Sunday was last day of Munich’s ASIA Filmfest. It’s time for my wrap-up. This year I did not have a top pick like in the past years. From the movies I watched I liked most “Overheard” followed by “Departures” and “The good, the Bad and the Weird”. I disliked only “Thirst” and “Vengeance”. I missed “Beast Stalker” where I had already purchased a ticket but mixed up screening hour. I saw 9 movies in total. The atmosphere seems to get warmer and warmer from year to year and also the attendence seems to grow. Always nice the evening presentations where the organizers Manuel Ewald and Armin Schmidt talk to the audience and giveaway DVD’s. I won a DVD at the “Overheard” screening: “Sasori”. 8 days with more than 50 movies. My favorite Asian movie genre is the Hong-Kong Movie, especially cop and crime thrillers. I also like Japanes movies. Asia FF is a real gem  in Munichs cultural landscape.
