    Saw a very poetic film today.

    Maples can open new interests, I've always admired Japanese culture with all its contradicytions, but I've always been fascinated by their art too, litterature, cinema, animation : Kawabata, Mishima, Misogushi, Kurosawa, Miyazaki...

    "Every Day a Good Day"is not only about the tea ceremony, it's about the life of a Japanese woman through about 25 years. It tells a lot about the way the Japanese see the world, the place of women in society too though it's anecdoctical. A beautiful film that I recommend if you have the opportunity to see it.

    Trailer in English :


    The trailer in French is not exactly the same, less "dramatic", more poetic :

    Looks interesting,
    Much less "dramatic" I agree.

    I guess I need to pull out some of my Ozu dvd's that have been collecting dust for a long spell.

    At times I really think I am the person being sung about here. Perhaps a lot of us feel the same !!?

    One never stops to learn.

    At least I hope so, or I'd be a living dead... ;0)
