Eyeshadow: The Ice Storm + Torii

A confirmed classic followed by a happening band: this time a show by Torii to follow The Ice Storm, Ang Lee’s ‘unjustly neglected masterpiece’. Or, how the liberal climate of the seventies takes its toll on a family. Torii’s show mulls it over live.

Ang Lee (Eat Drink Man WomanSense and Sensibility) attracted renowned actors for his caustic tale of a family disintegrating.

Kevin Kline and Joan Allen are locked in a frozen marriage, Sigourney Weaver is the woman next door with whom Kline shares some extramarital moments. The couple’s two teenage kids struggle to find their way in this emotionally disconnected world, with fourteen-year old daughter (Christina Ricci) fast turning into a pushy nymphomaniac.

sloshing waterbeds

When first released, The Ice Storm was taken as a biting comment on the 1970s, the decade of partner swapping on sloshing waterbeds and people trying to find their ‘real selves’ in a selfish scramble for personal growth as the Watergate scandal was unfolding on TV.

The Ice Storm ought to have been hailed as a masterpiece when it was released, according to Eyeshadow programmer Ronald Simons: ‘Ang Lee’s superbly filmed and perfectly acted family drama may appear cool on the surface, but is buzzing with energy and passions underneath. The public just wasn’t ready for it in 1997, so it's time to give the film the credits it deserves.’

five-strong band

It’s up to Torii to release all those simmering feelings. The five-strong band from Leiderdorp which previously performed at festivals including Le Guess Who has its roots in garage rock and loves improvisation. Torii makes it all happen with a guitar, percussion, a laid-back bass and a well-used organ. Plus vocals, and lots of energy.

Screened in 35mm.
