Mole Song – Hong Kong Capriccio

With fond memories of seeing the first Mole Song movie up in the gods at a packed Schouwburg in 2014, I was looking forward to seeing this as my last movie of IFFR2017. This year I’ve seen almost 40 movies, smashing all previous records and overall it’s been great in terms of film quality.

I tried to get some other people to come see this, being in a group at Oude Luxor is always fun, ultimately I ended up seeing most of this on my own, with people being taken ill and sitting behind me without realising. Hey ho that’s how it goes, I guess one reason I’ve seen so many movies this year is because I’ve focused more on film and less on friends.

In terms of the film itself, well it was definitely too long and only really funny in parts, but still a great closing film. You can’t really ask for more than Takashi Miike. Will there be a part three? Will I be back at IFFR? Of course, of course.
