Restless (2011)

Directed by: Gus Van Sant
Country: USA

Plot: The story of a terminally ill teenage girl who falls for a boy who likes to attend funerals and their encounters with the ghost of a Japanese kamikaze pilot from WWII.
Quick comment: Van Sant takes a new turn with this odd, dark romantic story reminding us of Hal Ashby’s “harold and maude”(1971). After major independent works such as “elephant”, “paranoid park” or “mala noche” and Hollywood sensations like “milk”, “drugstore cowboy” and “good will hunting”, this new feature reveals some weaknesses. Just watchable!
