Homage to Ozu and His Ilk .......
23 September 2011 | by (Düssledork) – See all my reviews

A man and a religion. Discovery of the essential things in life and taste of long fights. In the skin of a impressive show. A film about hope and dark expectations. About love, abdications and truth. About the price of gestures and force of words.Story of a doctor in a lost era, with the dreams and surrenders and the need to testify the facts of a small travel. The golden age of Ozu is present in every detail. But the final taste is more different. Kintarô may be everyone. His story is the novel of success and lost present in every life. And the letters on a fax machine are the traces of any oldness. Sure, Yakuzadom is the principal character but it is more than the crooks of a faith. It is the portrait of existence's sense. A film as a fado. Delicate and harsh, labyrinth and scene, show and occasion of reflection, history of a myth and drop of a legend, smoke and stone in same composition. A film for dreamers. And for who hopes be more than a letter's line.
