Life is a bowl of green tea
17 January 2019 | by flcntk3-856-986017See all my reviews

This is a movie in which life is a bowl of green tea. The Japanese tea ceremony becomes a philosophical and ritualistic approach to honor, to respect, to become harmonious and exacting as a mirrored counter part of the cyclical and seasonal changes in life where things are repetitive and yet imperceptibly different as time goes by. There is a moment in the film in which the camera seemingly detached itself from the story and zooms into the level of pulsating cells of a leaf. That out of context moment is exactly what this film is about. Life!
