Immortal – A Foreign Film with Beautiful Soundtrack

Yet another foreign film showing at the Arts House, how can I resist? Immortal is a sci-fi film by the famed Yugoslav-born graphic novelist and director Enki Bilal. New York City 23rd centry with futuristic buildings and transportation infrastructure no less than The Fifth Element, where somehow all creatures live in different level. The highest level of all? A pyramid, where the gods reside.

What captivated me the most was the ending sound track by Venus. The title is Beautiful Days.

The storyline is somewhere bizzare but yet simple. It was about Horus, the falcon-headed Egyptian God who has only seven days to live. It was about a girl named Jill who could be an alien. And it was about a polictical prisoner, Nikopol, who has been cryogenised for 30 years. The main story was about how Horus has used Nikopol’s body to impregnate Jill.

Bizzare it is. Entertaining, definitely in an art way.

The ending song was a great song composed by Venus. A French band I have not heard of and the album can only be found in FNAC (a French music chain store). I manage to source out the lyrics. See below.

I wish i was mad
Fucked up and done
I wish i was bad
And completely wrong

I wish i was made
Rebuilt-up and fake
I wish i could lie
And never could fail

And live some beautiful days
In a magical place
Beautiful loves
Perfect and straight
Beautiful days
In a magical place
A new dream is born
The new freaks have come

I wish i was fast
And crazy as a dog
I wish i could last
As long as the gods

I wish i could be
Perfectly free
Wish i was a creep
Wish i made you bleed

And live some beautiful days
In a magical place
Beautiful loves
Perfect and straight
Beautiful days
In a magical place
A new dream is born
The new freaks have come
Beautiful days
In a magical place
Beautiful loves
Perfect and straight
Beautiful days…
