Do not love: inside is emptiness
17 March 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Movies by Uchida Tomu were subtitled very recently and are only shown at festivals... but not to be missed.

Here, the demonstration is done that Love never works, through three (or is it one? --- it is one) impossible-love-stories.

It could seem to start like an epic movie, but it is definitely not so: Mixing elements of noh, kabuki and kinky erotic; assumed filmed theater and "normal" movie; and much more, the movie is never messy. The story is complex enough and can be seen a different levels, but it remains clear and understandable. That is art and entertainment. And not depressing though the subject is not optimistic.

Another extremely good Japanese movie from the 60's.
