Guisi (2006, TIW) C-108m. *** D: Su Chao-Bin. Starring Chang Chen, Chang Chun-Ning, Chen Bo-lin, Yosuke Eguchi, Barbie Hsu, Kevin S. Smith. Intriguing mix of horror and sci-fi themes about a team of scientists who have captured the ghost of a little boy. Together with a tough police sergeant they want to find out why the little boy's spirit cannot rest. Smoothly made horror film offers an interesting explanation for ghosts and invents anti-gravity with the help of a Menger Sponge (mathematicians will know what this is). Another stunningly professional film fro Asia, stylishly made and superbly scored. English title: SILK.
