A fine look at the world's best film composer at work

This is a must see for anyone interested in Takemitsu, Japanese film, or
film music. For that matter, it's great for anyone interested in
or music in general. Takemitsu was a amazingly unique composer, and this
film illustrates repeatedly the impact he brought to the films he worked
so much so that he could be considered a star of these films. He had the
ability to add rich emotion and context to films with a few simple strokes.
One word of warning though... the film contains many clips from several
films, and almost invariably they are the strongest scenes from those
So you might want to see films like Ran, Double Suicide, Face of Another
and Empire of Passion before you see this film.
