Strange and Awesome
11 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

I absolutely loved this film. I saw it in Rome as a part of a Japanese Film Festival at the Japanese Consulate? or Cultural center? and it has now become one of, if not my favorite, Japanese films I've ever seen (and I've seen quite a few). So strange, very difficult to follow but all the same very interesting and engaging. It was shot well and at times I remember it being pretty intense. The story revolves around a Tree and those people around it who want the tree (Added to the confusion of the plot, I saw it a couple years ago, so my memory fails me). I have not seen any of Kiyoshi Kurasawa's other films but I'm going to try. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes Japanese films and the discussions that follow watching them. If anyone knows where I can get a copy of this, or see it again please let me know. I would love a copy of this one.
