Very weird
22 November 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Émotion" (notice the French spelling) is a 40-minute short film from almost 50 years ago. The writer and director behind this piece is Nobuhiko Ôbayashi, who you may know from his most famous work "Hausu". But here, back in 1966, this was still really early during his career and he wasn't even 30 years old. Yet this was not one of his very first works as a filmmaker. Anyway, what can i say about these 40 minutes? it is an extremely experimental movie. There may be some kind of story in here, but it gets lost in the quantity of individual shots and strange actions taking place. Most of the actors in here have never appeared in another film before or after this one. I personally did not really enjoy the watch. It was too strange for my taste. It's not a complete failure, but a very unusual movie and all in all I can't recommend it.
