Mama and Darker than Black

Mama is a GDT produced film based on a short of the same name. The story goes that GDT saw the short (on YourTube?) and contacted the director, offering to produce a longer version of it, and offering to let the guy who made the short direct it. Kind of cool when stuff like that happens.

It offers some good scares without being gory (PG-13) while exploring themes such as loss and recovery (or not) and of course motherhood. The film's strength is in its production design, apart from the cgi which I do not believe was intended to wow anyone (not with a budget of $15m anyway). Jessica Chastain and Nikolaj Coster-Waldau both turned in excellent performances... and neither are hard on the eyes as they say. In short it is a great looking film. I should ad that it has a European (Spanish) though it is quite accessible to NA audiences. Everyone I know who've seen it thought it quite good. Check it out!

Darker than Black is an anime series from 2007. It has the mix of quirkiness, compelling characters and complex story lines that usually suck me right in. Glad I gave it a shot... I'm on the 8th episode out of 27 I think.
