I wonder what an inspiration was (Dogme95 and Festen, Quentin Tarantino, other?) Difficult theme but all in all interesting.

Today, John goes for a walk. The city always looks the way he feels. Crowded. Today, Violet watches TV. The people on the tube always look the way she feels. Entitled. Today, Mia buys some day old daisies. The flowers always look the way she feels. Abandoned. Today. Today. Today.

THIS little absurdist self-referential FILM is a character study of a downtown mindset. It's about addiction to distraction, about making compromises to survive, about having nothing to fall back on if it all goes to hell. It's about feeling misunderstood, about outgrowing your lifestyle, about trying to support yourself. It's about loneliness, self-destructive behavior and over-stimulation. It's about failed transformation. It's about dealing with disappointment. It's about finding friendship and unconditional acceptance. It's about how no matter what you're going through you find people who are in the same place as you. It's about getting fucked up and laughing through the pain. It's about self-absorption and fading beauty. It's about sex and uncontrollable desire.

It's about optimism. It's about truth. It's about the lies we tell ourselves.

It's about today. And how life could be different tomorrow.

Or maybe not.

35mm, full Dolby Surround, shot on Kodak super16

that trailer looks good, though. and uses a few shots that were cut from the final product (do not appear in the movie. at least not on the Thai edition of it)

“It gets worse when you get older.”
Yeah, Keanu, it does. “On the nose” casting, putting Reeves in the lead role where he’s both confused, “dumb,” and somehow irresistible.


... I ain't sayin' anythin' ;)

http://www.boweryboogie.com/2013/04/trailer-released-for-keanu-reeves-indie-flick-generation-um-video/

Keanu Reeves was last spotted on the Lower East Side munching cupcakes outside Sugar Sweet Sunshine for indie flick generation Um. For a while there in 2010, the indie flick had a grip on the neighborhood, filming scenes regulary. Then, an extended silence.

Now, after two and a half years in production purgatory, a film trailer emerges. Release date for generation Um is set for May 3 in New York and Los Angeles.

Here’s a synopsis from a recent press release:

The world is downtown New York City, present day – from the point of view of a driver for an escort service. John (Keanu Reeves), a quietly sexy withdrawn guy, is finally ageing out of his young, trendy neighborhood, dealing with the beginnings of the next chapter of his life.

John’s friends are the party girls he works for – Violet (Bojana Novakovic), an unstoppable entertainer whose weathered beauty and self-proclaimed wisdom are matched only by her lack of audience; and Mia (Adelaide Clemens), the new girl with the dark past, whose traffic-stopping sensuality has brought her nothing but victimization. Both survive on their ability to manipulate men, and don’t know how to live any other way. But John, they trust. And through their relationship, all three find a comforting and humorous refuge from the downward spiral of their self-destructive but entertaining lifestyles.

During the interviews for Generation Um, Keanu Reeves explained why the movie’s moniker is not focused on simply one generation. Instead, the picture focuses on the universal element of human connection.
