LIVING IN THE SEDUCED CIRCUMSTANCES – A cerebral work by the auteur filmmaker Ian Gamazon takes the audience into a different cinematic realm. The quirky narrative keeps the audience on the edge.
This film follows the Andre Bazin’s film theory.
I was intrigued by the fact the behavior of the pregnant girl in the beginning. As the film progresses, we get insight into the relationship and the back story of both the characters. The director has used minimal auditory stimulating devices and has relied mostly on the visual medium.
The similar narrative is seen in the literary work of German writer Franz Kafka.
I thoroughly enjoyed and strongly recommend it.

I loved Living as well! I tended to favor the commercial movies we saw this weekend, but this one was my favorite by far! It was very thought provoking regarding memory/history, guilt, and justice. I also loved the fairy tale frame. The story walked the fine line between absolutely horrifying and humorous. It’s also such a huge mind screw; I left the movie with the same feeling I have when I watch something written by Yoji Enokido. Getting to hear the director talk about the film afterwards was very awesome as well. I’ll definitely be thinking about this movie for awhile!
