Kuldesak #

Released 11/20/1998

Description: The movie weaves around four stories all event in metropolitan, dehumanizing Jakarta. In fact that is what it is about, the quality of meaninglessness of living in a zone that turns folks into zombies. In a zone where meaning gotta be invented, these children turn into the only place, the only culture they see worth tuning into: tv and movies. Thus they slowly degenerate into the abysmal reinterpretation in a sort of sickening anti-hero, anti-social statements that goes absurdly a wrong turn.

Charly Reviews:

Werner Erhard once told that if you wish your life to work, start by cleaning out your closet. In twenty five-year-old director Isild Le Besco's Charly, a loquacious streetwalker takes this tip and supports a fourteen-year-old runaway receive his life together by pushing him to finished routine household tasks. Charly is a tender, fully honest, and fully believable look at two folks who need every another but are unable to communicate. Shot in a format that does not even fill up a normal film screen, allow alone widescreen, the actors are mostly silent and the camera does not transport very much, yet the movie is never static or dull. Le Besco's younger brother Kolia Litscher is Nicholas, a sullen and listless fourteen year-old. Under achieving at school, the man has problem adjusting in the home of his grandparents (Jeanne Mauborgne and Kadour Belkhodja) and his teachers do not deliever much encouragement.One teacher says him that he is very lazy and questions him about how he sees his future. To that, Nicholas says him laconically, "I'm waiting for the future to come." When the teacher leaves a ebook of the controversial German 1891 enjoy Spring Awakening by Frank Wedekind with a picture postcard of Belle-Île, a seaside resort, inserted, Nicholas has all he needs to package his bags and head for his dream island. Charly (Julie-Marie Parmentier), a feisty twenty year-old prostitute finds him on the roads of a nearby town and asks him if he wants to come to her trailer home in the countryside. From there, Nicholas and Charly develop a most unusual relationship, one that is oddly supportive.The equivalent of Cher slapping Nicholas Cage across the face in Moonstruck, saying him to "snap out of it", Charly assigns Nicholas routine tasks such as cleaning, washing dishes, getting water from the outside faucet, taking out the garbage, and shopping for bread, manifesting a need for assurance and structure. Nicholas, who has never before apparently had been asked to do anything for himself, is a willing pupil and Charly is grateful to have someone at home to do the chores she would rather not. Though there is no communication about thoughts or feelings (Nicholas never questions what Charly does at night or who picks her up every day on a motorcycle), their relationship develops an intimacy based on mutual need.Parmentier's performance makes the movie come alive, especially in the sequence when the two read aloud from Wedekind's enjoy and act out crying and beating every other, perhaps the nearest thing to intimacy that every is capable of. In Le Besco's words, "I think that communication is not easy. To really communicate with someone you have to work difficult to do something together. You have to be able to give a tiny of yourself. I think these two are able to give a tiny of themselves when they are reading this text of the play. But otherwise, they cannot really do it". Though Nicholas does a lot of growing up, Charly is no formulaic coming-of-age Indie and the movie is not limited to a kitchen-sink reality. Few dreamlike sequences probe the inner workings of Nicholas' mind and let us to see what cannot be verbally communicated. A tastefully done sexual initiation stage is also part of this fully special gem that clamors for wider distribution.


Discovering sweet tiny gems is what makes movie festivals so exciting to attend. Unfortunately, they are several and far between. Here, at the 2008 Tribeca Movie Festival, there was one from France in Isild De Besco's "Charly." Nicolas is a listless, awkward 14-year-old whose life is a fully blank canvas. There's simply nothing there. After embarking on a adventure to an island he's only seen on a postcard, he runs into Charly, a young girl who lives in a trailer, working at night and spending her days performing obsessive-compulsive homemaking rituals. The two forge a most unlikely friendship, although it takes quite some time for Nicolas to wake up from his stupor. When he finally smiles the audience breathes a sigh of relief -- yes, there is life after all.Nicolas and Charly are not just at the heart of the movie -- they are the film. It exists solely for the relationship between these two unlikely roommates and the ability of Kolia Litscher and Julie-Marie Parmentier to create them believable. One or both are on screen from begin to finish and very several characters appear at any another time. So it is theirs to create or break, and their performances feel so true it's difficult to imagine that "Charly" is scripted at all.That said, although the movie is titled "Charly," it would much more accurately be titled Nicolas, as it's ultimately the man whose adventure dominates the movie from opening game to closing credits. Charly enters the movie after the first act but, while she may brighten his life and give it a sense of purpose, it is Nicolas' coming-of-age which is truly the focus of the movie and makes it so heartwarming. The movie succeeds, more than anything, because Litscher's Nicolas is so innocent, vulnerable, and endearing. He is a joy to watch.Cinematographer Jowan Le Besco uses accessible light almost exclusively along with organic sound. Hand-held camera dominates with numerous closeups. The effect is a cinema verite look that turns the viewer into more of a voyeur than moviegoer. "Charly" has the feel of a Gus Vant Sant movie with its young, pretty characters, long takes with tiny or no dialogue, and copious test of tracking shots. It also felt a bit like Bertolucci's The Dreamers without the explicit sex and nudity, although there is a fleeting bit of that as well.While it takes quite some time for the storyline to gel, and although we never know where it's going, we don't really care because their relationship is just so odd and tender. There is so tiny action on screen but so much inside these characters which oozes out. Look up "sweet tiny film" in the dictionary and you just might see "Charly" as a definition.
