2016 Top Hollywood ‘Indivisible’ (‘Indivisibili’): Film Review And News:

Conjoined twins fight to be separated in Edoardo De Angelis’ off-beat drama.
Fresh-faced sisters Angela and Marianna Fortuna make a noteworthy screen debut as Dasy and Viola, the bubbling, singing Siamese twins who are far less grotesque than the greedy charlatans who exploit them in Italy’s lower depths. With an unspoken nod to the tragic lives of the real-life English twins Violet and Daisy Hilton, after whom they are named, director Edoardo De Angelis explores the psyches of the girls as they turn 18 and begin to dream of a normal life. After its bow at Venice Days and Toronto, this involving, fable-like drama looks like the perfect cross-over from festivals to art houses.

Side-stepping what could have been a cheap, morbid peek into the lives of two beautiful teenagers who were born joined at the hip, Indivisible strikes out on its own path, sounding an exhilarating note of freedom for its protags. Born into abject poverty in the camorra-infested lands around Naples, the girls become a symbol of rebellion against exploitation and human trafficking.

De Angelis’ first two off-beat features Mozzarella Stories (exec produced by Emir Kusturica) and the surreal gangster yarn Perez were set in the same toxic environment. Their strong, kitschy colors are slightly muted in Indivisible, where the story is better developed around characters the audience identifies with and cares about.

Here, the establishing shot is not an overhead fly-by of skyscrapers, but a tawdry dawn breaking on a beach littered with bonfires, where tired prostitutes trudge home to ramshackle houses made of cinder blocks. Dasy and Viola lie side by side in bed, woken by their blowsy alcoholic mom Titti (Antonia Truppo) and told to get ready to perform at a private party. Their sad-sack dad Peppe (Massimiliano Rossi), who writes their songs, loads them onto a van advertising the “Indivisibles”. Since he deposits a share of their earnings in the bank for them, it doesn't seem like the worst arrangement, given the circumstances.

The party turns out to be a First Communion bash for a pudgy little rich girl and is the height of Neapolitan kitsch, delightful and a little chilling. A massively tattooed lady in an evening gown belts out Ave Maria as a dance number, while her suave handler (Gaetano Bruno) attempts to persuade the twins to work for him. But when they start to sing, their heavenly voices are pure charm.  The quality of the music, which was written by folk singer Enzo Avitabile, is palpably beyond poor Peppe’s talents, and an early signal that this is a fantasy film and not reality.

Though the sisters are identical twins, their sunny personalities distinguish them almost at once. Viola has a sweet tooth; Dasy like to drink. They dream of absconding to Los Angeles, and Dasy dreams of being with a man. When a doctor suggests they have no vital organs in common and could be surgically separated, Viola can’t imagine living apart from her twin; Dasy can think of nothing else. The film’s second act describes their na├»ve attempts to raise cash for the operation, as their handlers throw off their masks of family love and defend their right to exploit them.

One of the least convincing characters is a would-be charismatic priest (Gianfranco Gallo) who travels with huge Jesus statues and rallies the local Nigerian ex-pat community with a few shouted banalities in English. He hangs around the family for no clear reason, perhaps sensing opportunity, and is the most cynical of them all. When Dasy begs him to help, he coolly tells her she’s better off marketing herself as a freak.

Surprisingly, given the ferocity of the location (the film is set near Castel Volturno, where Matteo Garrone’s Gomorra was shot), De Angelis keeps violence off the screen, though the threat is always present. In a tense sequence aboard a yacht, the sensation that the twins are in physical danger gives the whole scene great impetus. Its incredible ending, like the film’s unlikely conclusion, is shot with so much conviction it works.

The cast is well-chosen and directed, beginning with the charming Fontana sisters, and including the all-too-human Truppo and Rossi as their inadequate, but not monstrous, parents. Ferran Paredes Rubio’s pro cinematography stresses the fable-like quality of the tale.

2016 Hollywood 'Never Gone': Film Review And News:

Budding stars Kris Wu and Crystal Liu headline a second entry in an emerging modern Chinese romance series.
The trials and tribulations of romance between people from opposite sides of the tracks is the hoary backbone in director Roy Zhou’s vaguely overwrought Never Gone, another entry in the unofficial series based on Xin Yiwu’s novel To Our Youth That Is Fading Away. Following Zhao Wei’s superior So Young, based on same source material, Never Gone is a clunky, retrograde imitation of that coming-of-age exploration of romance and the folly of youth in a rapidly changing early-1990s China.

So Young had more context, and so more meat on its bones, something the wispy Never Gone lacks. Ultimately, however, the film is a shiny piece of contemporary Chinese life with attractive leads, which should carry it to modest release across Asia. Beyond that, its prospects are considerably thinner considering its equally thin content.

The romance at the limp heart of Never Gone is the on-again, off-again love for the ages between Cheng Zhang (Mermaid's Kris Wu) and Su Yunjin (The Assassins' Crystal Liu). The story starts in present-day Manhattan, with Yunjin roaming the streets in search of something — or someone. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon (and it’s not a spoiler) to realize she’s looking for Zhang, particularly after we flash back to 2007 and their first meeting. In their last year of high school, provincial Yunjin transfers in to a prestigious city school, at great expense to her parents, in order to ensure a good education, strong entrance exams and a place at a good university. Zhang is the school’s handsome golden boy: an athlete from a wealthy family and a princess “girlfriend” who’s also beautiful and adored. Naturally, Yunjin hates Zhang, he wins her over with his blinding charisma (not really) and she falls for him, the Cinderella to his Prince Charming. But for the next eight years the relationship is fraught with stress, Zhang’s wealth and position a constant roadblock to their happiness Yunjin cannot get over.

Never Gone’s soft focus and fanciful glow make it look more like an iced tea commercial — when it’s doesn’t look like a shampoo commercial — than a serious romantic drama that contemplates China’s class system and cronyism as its economy modernizes and expands and how that impacts social relationships. That might be expected given that director Zhou has a background in advertising, but it doesn’t quite work as the kind of contemporary star-crossed lovers weepie South Korea does so well. This is straight-up soap opera, with requisite B and C plots designed to support the main idea that money is an insurmountable divide. Yunjin’s second love interest, the working-class library colleague Shen Juan (Qiao Renliang), eventually succumbs to the lure of cash (in a bit of a jealous huff) after discovering Yunjin still has feelings for Zhang. Yunjin’s best gal pal Mo Yuhua (Li Meng) winds up heartbroken when the boyfriend she has on the down low accepts an engagement to a “proper” girl (this even though Yuhua is a doctor).

The film is gauzy enough technically to distract from the occasionally embarrassing lead performances. Liu acquits herself better as the conflicted Yunjin, though screenwriters Zhou, Chen Wenjuan and Pan Yu stretch the limits of credibility for her pride and motivations. Wu appears to be in pain whenever the story demands he express more than impish charm.
