Human values and the opposite in a poetical way
30 July 2015 | by HombredelfuturoSee all my reviews

...not everyone s cup of tea.

This film uses certain Japanese historical facts in a free adaptation to express or show human values and the opposite side: the negative side. Sen no Rikyuu was one of the main figures in the Japanese Tea ceremony introducing a Zen like way in it. Main character is based on him interacting with other Historical characters like Oda Nobunaga and Toyotomi Hideyoshi. I did not have seen the previous version: "Rikyuu" by H Teshigahara but this one is a very poetic rendition to the book. The Photography is excellent and the camera work is superb. The first Ten minutes are very good and settle the pace of the film. Slow for many viewers, but I think that the camera work, the silence, the colors, the angles, the faces, the moves, the moods all contributed to frame with delicateness that poetry. In which way the power transform a person? some one with perceptiveness could ask. The story start near the end; then follow showing the narration about 20 years before this last episode. In all these years we see the grew up of Rikyuu before he was named Rikyuu and an incident that seems key in his way to view things. I think the director paint in front of us very smooth and in a pleasant manner things like: true love; self improvement; dedication; pureness; humbleness; cowardice; loyalty; avarice; treason; etc Is a powerful man a discernment person? In the end; who decides?
