A Beast In Love (2020) review [JFFH 2021]

“A divisive exploration of the various sides of the crazy little thing called love decorated with a demented finale, which is as disturbingly violent as it is shockingly romantic.”

Short Movie Time: Yamome (2018)

A pleasant short film that highlights that deception in romance finds its ultimate support in the subject’s desire to be loved.

Flavour of Green Tea Over Rice (1952) review

A heartwarming and lighthearted narrative that shows how women, within the societal device of arranged marriage as well as within the modern device of marriages out of love, can find subjective happiness.

The Town of Headcounts (2020) review [Nippon Connection 2021]

“His dystopian ‘thriller’ does not only masterly highlight, in a chilling way, the various ills that marks contemporary society, but also shows, that within such dystopian world, a subject can always rediscover something to life and fight for.”

The Promised Land (2019) review [Nippon Connection 2021]

A beautifully composed and highly relevant narrative about destructive kinds of social violence, a social violence against the Otherness present in the community and an ostracizing violence to turn the once-trusted other into an unwanted Otherness.
