Movies In The Mountains – Liza the Fox-Fairy

Hungarian director’s Karoly Ujj Meszaros fanciful debut, about a woman whose first dates always end up dead, is an impressive, special effects-laden genre mashup.

True love might be worth dying for, but it is slightly premature to die on the first date, as all the men do who are interested in the titular hero of Liza, the Fox-Fairy (Liza, a rokatunder). A fanciful fantasy-horror-romance hybrid, this good-looking debut feature from Hungarian commercials director Karoly Ujj Meszaros combines the whimsy and colorful, retro-inspired visuals of Amelie’s Jean-Pierre Jeunet with Japanese mythology and a generous helping of the mordant wit and macabre leanings more familiar from Eastern European fare, such as the work of compatriot Gyorgy Palfi (HukkleTaxidermia)

Revelstoke Multicultural Society & Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre present Movies in the Mountains, the best multicultural films from the Toronto International Film Festival on the fourth Wednesday of every month.
