Enchanting Japanese film surpasses Anythin Hollywood can do!
I Recently picked this film up on DVD having recognised Takeshi Kitano in Battle Royale. I Thought at best it would be Moderatly entertaining. I was so Wrong.... This piece of work (directed and starring Takeshi himself) is without a doubt the Most Enchanting Magical Compelling Moving film i have ever had the pleasure of watching. The Imageary in the film is powerful and is backed up by a moving story. Takeshi plays a tough Tokyo cop who is ruthless on the beat, but obviously calm and gentle around his terminally ill wife. When His Partener is Paralysed in an attack he Realises lifes to short so he Decides to Take his wife around japan letting her see and do everything she ever wanted to do. there is not much dialoge between takeshi and his wife but the emotions are played out superbly with brilliant performances from both Of them. The movie grips you and doesnt let go right up untill the Shocking Conclusion. The film is just perfect and is a work of art in itself as a visually stunning and charachtor driven piece of perfect film. I Love it
