Rashomon redone - Incredibly beautiful, simplified story
4 November 2009 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

The English title of "Misty" more or less defines this film. The setting, in a near tropical temperate rain forest, is just that for the entire film. Whether with diffusion filters on the lens or the vast amount of fog in some scenes to the various forms of rain, nearly every scene has a dream-like image to it. The flowing camera work and the contrast ratio where there's a limited area of light that's not dark or overexposed also lends to the foggy memory feel of the film. The music is excellent.

That said, while the makers have taken the story of Rashomon and applied their extraordinary skills to the visuals, they decided to reduce the intellect behind Kurosawa's film. So while it's captivating visually and musically, in the end you might be wishing to see the original for a more fulfilling experience.
