Lan yue #

Released 1/1/1997

Description: There is usually only one full moon each month, but occasionally there are two - and that second full moon is named the "Blue Moon". It is told that when a person sees a blue moon and makes a wish, he will be granted a second possibility in things. This movie is about two young boys and a girl who are granted not only a second, but 120 chances. This is because the movie is structured in such a method that its five reels of footage can be projected in random sequences each time it is screened and the storyline will still create sense - the number of possible combinations adds up to 120 times; every time there is a various story, various rhythm and various atmosphere.

The Cry of the Owl Reviews:

Virtually ignored on it's release, barely reviewed in the press, I think this is a nice movie that is misunderstood and unfairly misjudged. This film is essentially a dark comedy and a terrible dream rolled into one. The story, based on the novel by Highsmith, is absurd, of course it's a comedy as all Highsmith's work is essentially darkly humorous, come on, a stalker who gets stalked by his victim? The director has a very subtle touch and I think this is why so many folks watching this movie are lost, the movie doesn't create conventional choices, it simply doesn't create it simple on the viewer that's why so many folks feel confused by this movie, but in my opinion many viewers these days are unable to recognize when a movie is interesting, doing something various from the norm, and this movie is doing exactly that. The movie has touches of Lynch, Cronenberg and the Cohens about it yet refuses to follow any of those directors paths.You should tell it is quite old fashioned, it relies heavily on mise on scene, a lost art today in most films, but to label it Hitchcockian is doing the movie a nice disservice because the label is too simple to apply here and the director, I believe, is well aware of the obvious comparison and is constantly testing with those notions. This is perhaps more a philosophical thriller than a psychological one and perhaps that is why it doesn't satisfy everyone, maybe the movie should have benefited from a tiny more tension, but for me it is an clever dissection of the dangers of the romantic mind.Robert wants the excellent woman, he stares at her through her window as if in a painting, but he knows the excellent girl doesn't exist, when Jenny invites Robert in the 'real' girl is exposed as being even more nuts than him. Look at what Robert tells to Nickie, his ex wife, at the end, 'when I first saw you , you were like a statue, then you moved and it was all...downhill from there on in.' He's only satisfied with the frozen photo of a woman, I trust both Jenny and Nickie's death are type of willed by this boy in some dark way, set in motion by him at the very least, the girls he loves are more pretty to him in death (as statues) than alive. At the end Robert gets what he wishes for, to be in the painting (the window) himself but everytime alone. Suggested only for those with a wicked sense of humour, patience and a sharp intellect.


I was drawn into this movie by the uneasy feeling that the central characters were being drawn into a slow-sucking situational quicksand, an experience that for most of us only happens in nightmares.If you prefer snappy pace and predictability in your films, transport on. As the another reviews indicate, you either really like this film, or really dislike it for any number of reasons. At times I wanted to grab the "hero" by the shoulders and give him a shake to snap him out of his apparent lassitude. At that mission I realized the film was working for me, I was invested emotionally. Casting stays refreshingly clear of stereotypes with not a "pretty boy" in sight, and direction, performances and technical credits are mostly right on the mark.This picture would have done so much better at the box office if it had allow the potential audience know that Patricia Highsmith was the creator of Hitchcock's "Strangers on a Train." For those of us not familiar with Highsmith's work, the game "The Cry of the Owl" is just too far removed from the essence of this movie to be a draw.So when you have the occasion to see this film, relax, place your feet up and watch the first ten or so minutes. If you fall asleep, or search your mind turning towards undone kitchen tasks, then receive back to "Jersey Shore" or whatever else gives your entertainment rush. If this movie passes the ten-minute endurance test, you'll search it evolves into 100 mins of compelling entertainment, destined to linger in the dark crannies of your mind for longer than you might expect.


I have never read the novel, nor heard of the movie. After reading some of the reviews here, I decided to give it a shot. And I have to say, I do not regret it. This is a very dark film with disturbed main characters, greatly acted by Robert Considine and Julia Stiles. This isn't your typical fast-paced Hollywood thriller. I consider this film to be "different", the plot develops slowly and is very unpredictable, which makes it in my opinion very enjoyable. I fully suggest this film to anyone, who likes dramas / thrillers with a dark touch, and enjoys nice acting. I give it a 7 out of 10.
