Crop And Save
This movie is set in Japan in year 1969. and it shows a group of teenage boys whose main obsessions are beautiful girls and rock and roll. Under the new wave of freedom and liberty in those years, they want to organize a school festival like the ones in America and in the same time in protest to the Vietnamese war. The main characters are Yazaki and Adama, both mischievous and trouble-makers. Adama falls in love with "Lady Jane", a beautiful girl by the name of Kazuko Matsui and he wants to impress her as the leader of the group that's organizing the festival. The movie is fun, but I wouldn't really recommend it unless you've watched other Japanese movies before and if you're not into their inside jokes and sense of humor, because otherwise you won't find the movie really that fun.
Chirusoku no natsu (2003)
A late 70's forbidden love story set in Japan
It's a forbidden love story about two athletes, one from Japan, Shimonoseki (Ikuko), and other from Korea, Busan (Ahn), who meet on athletic camp in summer of 1977. They share a Romeo & Juliet moment on a balcony, make a promise that they will see each other next year at Tabanata and then continue writing letters to each other throughout the year. But many obstacles come in their way, because both of their parents and friends are reluctant about their relationship, since the historical tension between Koreans and Japanese. And also, Ahn wants to go to college, and needs to quit the track, but he tries hard anyway just to fulfill the promise to meet with Ikuko next year ...
The movie is full of fun teenage views on relationship, and growing up between four girls, one of them being Ikuko, and the other three her colleagues from the track.
It's a really fun movie to watch, and the love story, though it sounds like a cliché, is neatly done and you easily get attached to it.
This could be one of the most romantic movies I've ever seen ! I recommend everyone to watch it.
I'm Not There. (2007)
If you're not introduced to Bob Dylan's career...
... then don't watch this movie! Otherwise you will find it extremely confusing, irritating and pointless. I won't vote for the film because I am not sure which grade should I give. I understand that I didn't like the movie largely due to the fact that I couldn't get all the pieces together, and I couldn't do that since I'm not a Bob Dylan's fan and I've never read a lot about him. I wouldn't say that this is the worst movie that I've ever watched. It has great actors in it, lots of beautiful scenery, nice songs, great shots, camera angles... But I don't like the fact that it's so narrow and it doesn't let you enjoy it if you're not into Bob Dylan. However, lately I decided to dig up on him, and I got this movie so that it would somehow introduce me to his career and break those mysteries about him, but I got something completely different.
Stellet Licht (2007)
A man caught in between
The movie is about a father of a big family living on a remote farm, in old fashioned way. He falls in love for another woman and is caught in between love and respect. I think it was both very interesting and unusual in the same time. I didn't know anything about it when I watched it, except that it's 140 minutes long :) Yeah, the movie grows very slowly and you have to be very patient while watching it. Some parts contain very little communication, and other are very Lynch-like. Some stuff that you would consider unimportant are carried out into details in the movie. The music and the scenery shots were beautiful, and the acting was good. It was an unique experience and I hope you'll know what I think about after you see it.
The Last Express (1997)
An Adventure Set On the Last Orient Express in 1914
Set on the Orient Express in 1914, this game is from the beginning completely different from anything you have seen before.
Through the story, you are led by the young American doctor, Robert Cath, who is urgently contacted by his old friend, Tyler Whitney, to join him on the Orient Express, crossing Europe from Paris to Constantinople. Robert, being assumed as a fugitive and wanted for mixing up in an exchange of fire with IRA in Ireland, accepts his friend proposition for escape. If only he knew then what were Tyler's reasons for going on to that train...
Game starts at Gare de l'Est, East train station in Paris on 24th July, almost a month after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo. Our hero, to avoid the police, reaches the train in the countryside little after the departure with a help of a young motorcyclist. His first goal is to find Tyler. There's where you step in.
The graphics of this game are unique, process used to input live actors into the games, known as Rotoscope, was used. The results is realistic animation, and the feel that you are on the train. Hand-drawings of train, rooms, made by the pictures one of the last remaining trains, off the track in Athens, which crew visited.
Voice acting is fairly good, there is no lip synching, but voices fit extremely well to the actors, even if most of them weren't given by the people who were used in Rotoscope process. Languages spoken on the train are English, French, German, Russian, Serbo-Croatian and Arabic. Cath understands first four of those languages, so the subtitles appear in the lower part of screen (except for English).
Music, the strongest point of this game thought by many. Original soundtrack was composed and orchestrated by Elia Cmiral, famous Czech composer. Music is mainly inspired by romance, mystery and sadness of the game. Violin play is extraordinary. Music fits extremely well into every aspect of the game.
Story, dialogs - absolutely remarkable. There are wealth of dialogs to be overheard, and the story will surely not leave you melancholic, as by the end you will understand the other part of the story that evoke on the beginning, with many questions and historical lesson.
A game you should definitely play.
Now and Then (1995)
Review of the movie
This movie is truly amazing, one of those movies you can watch over and over. It's a family film, but also a teenage film, as it deals with questions which girls/boys have at that time. It also shows the meaning of the true friendship. It's fun, nice, with great 70's songs which add up to the enjoyment and the ambient of that time. The whole plot is very interesting, the girls wanting to solve the death mystery back from the 40's. That summer was like a turning point in their lives, up to that summer they all had sweet idealistic lives, thinking that their town is protected from "outside" and that nothing bad will ever happen in their lives. Little by little, they are realizing that things are not what they seem, and that they will have to lean on the only thing that is persistent - their everlasting friendship, now & then.
