Johannes Flick & Marco Hakenjos "Chop Suey" (2010)

Chop Suey is impressive not only because it was created in only one month by Johannes Flick and Marco Hakenjos from the Filmakademie Baden-Wuertemmberg. The initial  creation of a storybook China is excellent. The facial detail might be a little on the sparse side but watch that wok bubble and be hungry. Then we see what is to be the contents of said wok. The basket is too big, the sides too high. But our bird is intelligent and works out the only possible solution. Heartless directors. Heartless, heartless, heartless.

Hi Anon.

Well, I wrote this using my Blackberry whilst on a 14 day holiday in the Azores. I think the review was shorthand for a technically advanced piece of work with a cruel ending. I've just returned this very evening, slightly tanned, refreshed and promising to be more precise in what I write from the comfort of my study! I trust you viewed the film prior to reacting to my sparse, near sentences.
