Re-Cycle (2006) NR - 3 Stars

Re-Cycle engages the controversial subject of abortion while it gives an objective view of it consequences. The one thing I liked most about this movie is the colorful imagination of the sets, I found the movie visually stimulating. So much so I want to credit Visual Effects Creative Director, Ng Yuen-fai. Also because of these sets, and the whole mixture of the journey the story line takes, it has to go in my bizarre category. Featuring almost exclusively one actor, Lee Sin Je, I think she does a great job holding down the show, though not always exciting in her facial expressions. With subtitles, an eerie beginning, and a touching ending, I give credit to the entire production for it's unique contribution to the movie industry.

Angelica Lee Ting-yen (Lee Sin Je), is a young author, working on her latest novel. As she tries to concentrate, strange sounds and visions disturb her work almost causing her to send her novel to the shredder for recycling. Frustrated, she's convinced these interruptions are taking her on a parallel journey of horrifying reality. She'll soon learn the importance of things shes discarded in life that now she holds dearly.
