Synopsis (possible Spoiler): Four friends/fledgling entrepreneurs, knowing that there’s something bigger and more innovative than the different error-checking devices they’ve built, wrestle over their new invention.

OK, I admit it. Even after reading the Wikipedia page for the movie, I still have trouble figuring it all out. So what? It’s an amazing low-budget movie that cost $7000 to make, but made $424,760 worldwide! How about that for a first-time directory payoff? It’s an amazing piece of film for the money – that’s for sure. I’ve seen it 4 times, and it still amazes me.

Princess (Denmark 2006)

Synopsis (possible spoiler): Due to his sister’s death, the 32 year old August returns and consequently abandons his profession as a missionary priest. His beloved sister Christina, who went from greatness to decay as the famous porn-star The Princess, is dead after years of drug abuse. She leaves behind her 5-year old daughter Mia, whom August feels obliged to take care of. Weighed down by grief and guilt he decides to revenge the dead of Christina – and takes Mia on a mission to destroy all existing pornographic material featuring The Princess. The mission escalates into a brutal and violent rout, where August is desperately trying to protect the only precious thing in his life, Mia, why he is forced to make a fatal decision. Written by Martin Stoltenborg Christensen

I don’t think this movie could’ve been made as a live action film without being NC17 or X. Interesting movie. (Nothing we haven’t seen before – however never in this context (Porn) and never as an innocent cartoon.). Please note: This is NOT Disney!
