Ano natsu, ichiban shizukana umi (1991)

10 months ago at Dec 2 16:11
This is one of the most contemplative -in background and, obviously, in form- movies that I've seen. With very appropriate to the simple story told and a solidarity message unpretentious melodies (Joe Hisaishi) but more than obvious, the film ends up shaking the melancholic side of anyone, any time showing in that which is without ups and downs, but with the bitter taste of caress that never comes... read more

Ano natsu, ichiban shizukana umi (1991)

“This is one of the most contemplative -in background and, obviously, in form- movies that I've seen. With very appropriate to the simple story told and a solidarity message unpretentious melodies (Joe Hisaishi) but more than obvious, the film ends up shaking the melancholic side of anyone, any time showing in that which is without ups and downs, but with the bitter taste of caress that never comes at all against the hypnotic sound of the waves on the beach. The nostalgic tone that runs through the film is, however, very well dosed notes very personal humor that would later characterize Kitano's filmography.

A Scene at the Sea is, for my taste and now, the first title to be considered in the work of Japanese filmmaker; nothing to do with the double and violent flash of her film st” read more

"23.10. Alhaisella tavalla lässynlää-herttainen Kitanon leffa onnistuu vähän pelottavastakin veitsen terällä hyppimisestään huolimatta riipaisemaan syvältä. Kuuro mies haluaa oppia surffaamaan, ja samalla hänen kuuro tyttöystävänsä ajautuu yhä kauemmas hänestä, vaikka yrittääkin tukea tätä parhaansa mukaan. Leffassa on paljon kohtauksia, jossa nämä kaksi vain kävelevät eteenpäin Joe Hisaishin aivan erinomaisen musiikin säestäminä. Siinä mielessä elokuva tuntuu ke"

"9.1. DVD Pitkästä aikaa Kitanon mainiota deadpania. Ja vielä positiivisesti yllättävää sellaista. Niitä elokuvia, joissa soundtrack on melkein puoli elokuvaa, ja hyvä niin, koska suosikkisäveltäjäni Joe Hisaishi on juuri oikea mies säveltämään tällaisiin elokuviin."

"Kaunis kertomus kuurosta pojasta Shigerusta (Kurôdo Maki), joka kohdistaa päivittäiset puuhansa ja intohimonsa rannalla surfailuun löydettyään roskakuskin apulaisena vahingoittuneen lainelaudan. Tyttöystävänsä kanssa hän lähtee jokapäivä merenrannalle harjoittelemaan korjaamallansa laudalla, kuitenkaan ilman mitään erityistä motiivia harrastukseensa kohtaan. Scene at the Sea edustaa Kitanon sitä vähemmän tunnettujen teosten puolta, johon hän myös löysi mieleisensä säve"

"A movie with a thin plot line, where the most important thing to watch here is what you feel in front of each scene. Unforgettable."
