An overture to the unique Japanese mythology
29 August 2007 | by Sanou_sanSee all my reviews

For starters, there are looming suggestions that one need to view the first version of Onmyoji. Though honestly I haven't viewed the first one, I find the second interesting. They say Onmyoji2 is uninterestingly lethargic, I find myself excited to watch the original ones. Onmyoji2 tells the early period of Japan were humans and apparitions live together in the skin of the world. It overtures us to the mythical land of Japan where mighty priest yield the best figure because of the presence of demons. The mood of the film shows maybe the usual murky age, where no one would dare to walk alone on abandoned streets and alleys. It always intrigued me the way Mansai Nomura's character portray his attributes—calm, happy-go-lucky, fond of playing jokes and quite secretive. Thus it always leaves me wondering about his background.

I worthwhile to peer rare national mythologies…
