As Japannual is just around the corner, we want to introduce our recommendations for Vienna’s most amazing film-festival.
“Sabu’s splendidly structured genre-mix will surely please his fans as well as charm those who are new to his oeuvre.”
Japanese language does not resemble Joyce’s language in Finnigan’s wake.
“An idea that seemed great on paper, but turned out to be a bad one once experienced on the silver screen. In truth, people are far better off playing the game.”
“The narrative’s beginning and finale do not fail to deliver the right ingredients to turn this narrative into a satisfying visual experience.”
“While it is admirable that Daisuke Ono attempted to craft a narrative around an emotionally unstable subject – an emotionless subject that can turn hysterical in an instant, this project would have fared better if Daisuke Ono would have explored Rara’s subjectivity in a more structured and deeper way.”
“Tanaka has succeeded in crafting a truly entertaining statement against oppressive control and the importance of finding, on one’s own subjective account, moments of happiness.”
“Kan Eguchi succeeds in composing an action-narrative that, by hitting all the necessary beats, ensures the spectator’s enjoyment.”
“Our recommendations for this year’s Camera Japan Festival.”
