Strings (Tied by Hate, Bound by Love)

Category :

Dominique was watching this movie the night before and showed it to me the next day. The movie is entitled "Strings". This is one cool movie that I've seen in years. Forget about the computerized and animated film features that we, the movie audiences, have been bombarded lately. This film directed and written (together with Naja Marie Aidt) by Anders Ronnow Klarlund does not in anyway deviate from most movie themes; love, hatred, violence, peace, family ties, etc... but what sets it apart was that the characters were played by "marionettes". Though this is not the first time that a full-length movie was done on marionettes, this movie goes a little further with its awesome cinematography and attention to details that you wouldn't even mind that the puppets don't open their mouths when they talk.

A synopsis of the movie written by Daniel Williamson says: Hal Tara is the son of The Kahro of the city of Hebalon and heir to the throne. When The Kahro kills himself, Hal is chosen to taken his place to rule Hebalon. But the discovery of The Kahro's suicide letter, that his father's death was no suicide, and was conducted by rivals of the city known as The Zeriths, Hal disguising himself as a commoner leaves the city and sets out to find the Zeriths and avenge his father. But Nezo, The Kahro's evil advisor who discovered the Kahro's body sends a warrior known as Erito to join Hal and to kill him. Entering the Zerith's camp, unaware of his identity, Hal falls in love with Zita, a Zerith female warrior, unaware Nezo has evil schemes to take over ruler ship of the city and Erito's wife Eike and Hal's sister Jhinna have uncovered his evil plot.

Enough said, watch the movie in its entirety here.
