Itao is a famous comedian in japan, and a co-worker of Matsumoto of Down Town. itao also appeared on Matsumoto's directing works like Dai-Nihonjin, Saya-zamurai. itao did his first film Datsugoku-ou at 2009, but he's recent work was not perfect, cos i think he wanted he's film perfect. maybe, perfect as a comedian. but at that time, i thought, that he should forget he's a comedian, cos he had a definite sense to be cinematic creator. and at last, he learned about cinematic words, which just the few of them knew(like Antonioni, Duras, Polanski etc). and became a master of those words. this film becomes like a dictionary. disappearance, scar, water, tunnel.... director himself is disclosed about what he wanted to express, however, most thing that interests me is that the moon in the sky, and the moon which reflects on the pond. you know it looks like maybe there's a 2 moon exists. that tells all.
