The Actor who acts as the painter who paint and the writer who writes
A watched this film for the first time a couple of years ago, in a film festival and a liked very much. A year ago I've the opportunity to buy it very chip in the supermarket. I enjoyed it again. At this time Elena Anaya has developed her career a lot, I've seen her in Rewind, Bendito Infierno, Blue room, Lucía and the sex and one or two more. Particularly in this film I liked her very natural performance, as well to the mayor part of the cast. She is a very beautiful and talented woman.
But what I really loved of the film was the actor who acts that acting. In art and literature, an of course in cinema, this issue has a long tradition. In painting is almost a genre, the studio of the painter. And of course there are lots of examples of the writer who is actually writing the story we are capable to see, thanks to his very actual writing. So, I believe the way the film approaches to the subject is very clever, and soft, I mean it doesn't need lot of "intellectual" dialogs like Allen's films. This one has many funny moments and significant ones. And the similarities that you can find with real life, and the acting world are really well presented.
Almost I enjoyed the performance of the "brother", I expect to see more of his acting.
I'd the opportunity to know a pair of films of this same director, and he is a really good one in the treating of people matters.
Diary of Early Winter Shower (1998)
Very beautiful landscapes
I liked the movie even though it was a little sad without very good reason. A love watching foreign films, so I can see the different ways of life. The most wonderful thing of this film, is that people don't react as you're use too, "the western" way of life. The relationship established between the two main characters is so elegant, funny, and "civilized". There are a lot of beautiful landscapes, beautiful scenes of trees in bloom, which reminds the engraving and painting of oriental culture, as you may be able too see in the beginning credits.
The main actress is very agreeable, and the actor is quiet nice. Another nice thing is that when they talk about the past they are the same actors, and no need to explain is it in a poetic way. It's very enchanting to watch the modern Japan with some very traditional details like the houses and the kimonos. It's a window to see a different culture in a natural way. There are so many recordable moments, and human nature is always present. The other thing a liked the most was, that besides it's a drama it's presented as something so smooth, without shouting and futile desperation .
