quietearth [Celluloid 06.11.10] Taiwan movie trailer news drama



This didn't get much attention but seems to have gotten a decent reception at Cannes where it premiered. No, it's not all second life, it's a mixture and it actually looks quite good.

R U THERE is the story of Jitze (20), a professional gamer who travels around the world to compete in video game tournaments. During a stay in Taipei he unexpectedly witnesses an accident, which confronts him with his own mortality and makes him doubt the certainties of his existence. When he meets a Taiwanese betelnut girl he is attracted to, he only manages to get close to her in Second Life, which serves to compound his doubts.

hmm, good try at a "half in game half in real life" film..but the 2nd life element is a bit forced. shud hav maybe kept it to one game? people who arent experts wont see the difference between the shooter game and 2nd life.

Second Life isn't a game, but I'm sure plenty of furries will disagree with me and be excited about machinima at Cannes :/
