TSS KK Film: Atomised, 20th Jan 2015

AtomisedAtomised  (Germany)

[ Approx screening time: 113 mins ]

Synopsis: Writer-director Oskar Roehler brings to the screen Michel Houellebecq’s popular seriocomic novel of two ill-adjusted siblings, Michael and Bruno, half brothers who have each adjusted poorly to adult life, thanks in no small part to a cracked upbringing by their eccentric, social dropout mother. As the story opens, each brother experiences a personal crisis. Geneticist Michael returns to his work in cloning after an extended period away from his Irish laboratory, but suffers in quiet desperation from his intense inner loneliness. Then he reencounters Annabelle, an adolescent crush to whom he was never before able to express his romantic yearnings; they consummate an intense erotic affair, and remain together, but a troubled pregnancy renders her infertile and makes family conception an utter impossibility. Meanwhile, high school teacher Bruno (a married husband and father) is driven completely around the bend by sexual yearnings for his female students, and consequently suffers from a nervous breakdown; he checks himself into a sanitarium, then heads off on a bender at a swingers’ retreat with a new lover, Christiane – but their pleasure is all too short-lived.

It’s on the Tuesday, 20th January 2015 at  the Secretariat Office, Damai Plaza. The movie will start at 8.00 pm sharp.
