Mishima formula film?
14 January 2003 | by (Bendigo, Australia) – See all my reviews

I hope that an expert in Japanese literature can inform us here, but isn't this the classic Yukio Mishima formula? I expected to find that it was based on one of his novels, but it does not say this in the IMDB.

(Male) Plodder meets (male) Shining Star. Shining Star is physically beautiful male with Dream. Plodder befriends Shining Star and helps him with his Dream. Shining Star becomes more fanatical with Dream. Shining Star frustrated in Dream but won't compromise. Shining Star self-destructs. Plodder left with painful but inspiring memories of Shining Star.

If you like this kind of thing, then do see it. Ultimately not very human, but fanaticism never is.

On a musical note: If Japanese choirs really rehearse like this, with such discipline and dediction, then we need to take some lessons from them!
