I love it when this happens. I spend a few hours a day banging around the internet, looking for something interesting to write about. I basically look for either a) something that makes me lose my temper (happens often), or b) something that makes me smile (happens rarely). Today, we got a little bit of (b), in the trailer for The Strange Case of Angelica. It’s a great premise — a photographer is summoned to a family’s home to serve as the photographer for their dead daughter’s wake, only through the eyes of his lens, she appears to be alive. He begins seeing, and falling in love with her ghost — in his photographs and in his dreams.
It’s a pretty damn fine looking film. It’s directed by Manuel de Oliveira who is, I shit you not, 101 years old. I mean, damn.
Here’s the trailer:
