『ヒノマルソウル』２０２１年公開 １９９４年リレハンメルオリンピック、99.9%金メダルを手中に収めていた団体スキージャンプ、最後の原田選手の大失速ジャンプでまさかの銀メダルに終わります。 40代半ば以上の方なら原田選手 …
【Hinomaru Soul】 released in 2021
The 1994 Lillehammer Olympics, the group ski jump that had a 99.9% gold medal in hand, and the last big stall jump of Harada ended up in a silver medal.
If you are in your mid-40s or older, you may remember the malicious interview with Harada, the personal attack that is impossible in sports now.
This movie is centered around Jinya Nishikata (Kei Tanaka), one of the players who won the silver medal at the Lillehammer Olympics.
Nishikata encouraged Harada (Takayuki Hamatsu) who had stalled and vowed to win the gold medal at the Nagano Olympics four years later. I will end up.
Nishikata, who won the final race before the selection and was convinced that he would be selected as the representative, is overwhelmed by anger and regret.
At one point, Nishi was trying to quit skiing, but at the request of the Ski Association, he decided to participate in the Nagano Olympics as a test jumper.
The number of test jumpers gathered was 25, except for Nishikata and Minamikawa (Gordon Maeda), who had fallen as representatives. Even so, each of them is a young man who volunteered for the Nagano Olympics with a dream, and he trains every day. On the other hand, only Nishikata and Minamikawa (Gordon Maeda), who have fallen out of the national team, will enter the Olympics without being able to dispel the humiliation of going behind the scenes.
And Nishikata, who watches over the competition, wishes Harada’s first jump to “fall!” In his heart.
And once again, Harada’s big stall jump puts him in 4th place, and the gold medal is far away.
Before the second jump, a blizzard occurred and the competition was interrupted. Whether to resume the second competition or to decide the ranking based on the results of only the first competition, the judge who made the referee said, “If all the test jumpers can fly safely, the competition will resume.”
It will be left to the gold medal of the reversal or 25 test jumpers in the 4th place or the 2nd run.
Since it is a movie of the most famous story in the history of the Olympics, I wrote about the story, but with the support of so many test jumpers, I was surprised that Harada’s “Funaki” scene was born. Becomes hot.
I’m still dissatisfied with the script, which was greedy to spot all the characters, but it’s a movie that makes me cry. Please prepare two handkerchiefs.
Last but not least, I don’t think I’ll be watching the Tokyo Olympics anymore.
明日に向かって撃てCinema Column 【Butch Cassidy and Sundance kid】
June 5, 2021
『明日に向かって撃て』1969年公開 私のアメリカンニューシネマといわれる映画との初めての出会いで、音楽のバート・バカラックとの出会いの映画でもあります。 確か中学1年生の時、マカロニウエスタンにハマっていまして、同じ様 …
『BUTCH CASSIDY and the SUNDANCEKID』released in 1969
It was my first encounter with a movie called American New Cinema, and it was also a movie of my encounter with music Burt Bacharach.
Certainly, when I was in the first year of junior high school, I was addicted to macaroni western, and I watched it at the movie theater hoping that it would be a similar movie (not in real time, lol), but it was a completely different movie. It’s been ten years since I bought the soundtrack LP for the first time, and it’s still on the shelves of my parents’ house.
If you ask me to give you my favorite movie, I can make some candidates, but I would like to give this movie that has the best matching of images with music. I think there are many people like that.
The other day, Billy Joe Thomas, who sang the theme song “Raindrops Keep Fallin”, passed away.
The idyllic scene of Paul Newman and Catherine Ross riding two bicycles in the movie, “Even if it gets wet in the rain” (two bicycles in the soundtrack), is too famous.
I was still a kid, but I remember watching the stylish images, the stylish adult lines, and the nice background music.
This time it was a memorial BJ Thomas.
The movie is about 1890, a real outlaw, Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid.
Butch Cassidy (Paul Newman), who leads a well-known robbery group, is a bright and good-spoken man. Butch’s companion was Sundance Kid (Robert Redford), who made a name for himself as a gunman with a quiet and quick shot without any amiability in contrast to Butch.
The brilliant chase and sheriff hired by Union, which was damaged by the robbery of the round-trip train, will be relentlessly chased.
Butch, who thought he couldn’t escape from the chase, could speak Spanish, and Bolivia invited Sundance to fly high because of the good economy of the old gold rush, and he also rides Sundance.
Sundance lover Etta (Catherine Ross) accompanied them on the condition that they did not see only the place where they died, and they arrived safely in Bolivia on a luxury steamer, but …
The sleek lines, the coolness of Paul Newman and Robert Redford, and the beauty of Catherine Ross are still my dreams.
Thank you Robert Redford, Catherine Ross and Burt Bacharach for still alive.
Every time Burt Bacharach comes to Japan, I go to see it, but I would like to expect him to come back to Japan when Corona is over.
I like the song “Abandoned House” that plays when Etta leaves the two in the second half of the movie. Ask me to raise it in the music column next time.

I watched a documentary program featuring Pavarotti’s life and
I remember being impressed to hear Pavarotti sing “Nessun dorma” at the opening ceremony of the Turin Olympics for the first time. Later, it turned out that he was lip-synching, and he died while various speculations flew around, saying that he was illand his voice was not at a level that he could show live. I remember thinking that was a life-threatening performance for him ..
I watched this movie with only such knowledge, but I was really fascinated by Pavarotti’s background from the beginning of this movie by director Ron Howard.Taking the opportunity to replace a sick star singer, how Pavarotti become a major singer and his private life are depicted in the film.
Not only the co-starring scene with Placido Domingo and Jose Carreras, who are said to be the three miraculous Tenors, but also the session with Bono of U2 iswonderful. Pavarotti begged him to write a song, and Bono reluctantly accepted it, and they went to Modena, Pavarotti’s hometown and sang together “Miss Sarajevo”,which is a very moving scene.
The friendship with Princess Diana is also mentioned in the movie, which shows Pavarotti’s feelings at her funeral when he refused to sing because he was too sad to sing.
Most of the documentaries of the big music stars have a tragic life, but this movie is a proof that the big star Pavarotti survived with all his might.

【ミナリ】2021年公開 1980年代、農業で成功することを夢見て韓国系移民のジェイコブ(スティーブン・ユァン)が家族を引き連れてアーカンソー州の高原に到着します。 荒れた土地に置いてあったボロボロのトレーラーが住まいだ …
Minari] Published in 2021
In the 1980s, Korean immigrant Jacob (Steven Yeun) arrives on the plateau of Arkansas with his family, dreaming of success in agriculture.
Her wife, Monica (Han Yeri), finds out that a tattered trailer lives in a rugged land, but is worried about the future, but her curious younger brother, David, and his sister, who suffers from her heart, are solid. Ann finds hope in nature and trainer life.
While working to sort out male and female chicken chicks, Jacob cultivates rugged land and struggles to draw water.
Eventually, his tongue-in-cheek grandmother, Sunja (Yoon Yo-jung), joins in and builds a strange bond with his grandson, David.
However, although the agriculture seemed to be going well, the water withdrawal did not go well and the agriculture could not stand. Her wife, Monica, persuades Jacob to return to Los Angeles to raise her child, but Jacob still takes a step back and the couple are in conflict.
While doing so, an unexpected incident occurs …
It’s just been screened, so this is the story.
It depicts the collapse and rebirth of the family against the backdrop of the wonderful nature of Arkansaw. You can enjoy just watching Youn Yuh Jung, who is said to be the treasure of Korea, but Alan Kim, who plays David, is the best. It seems that he has no acting experience, but it is a masterpiece that reminds me of when I was a child. I would like to give the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Also, Will Patton of “Armageddon” appears as an American who helps Jacob, adding an accent to the movie.
Actually, it was Youn Yuh Jung, and I expected it to be a family member who would cry at the end, but it was a little different from what I expected. It’s a movie that makes you feel refreshed as if the sun were shining after the rain.
If I was 10 years younger, I might have said that I would do farming with my family.

Individual professor] Published in 1969 Nathalie Delon, who starred the other day, passed away. After all, I remember the individual professor of the movie. I think it was a Japanese title to make it a hit, but the merits and demerits of this title [Individual Professor] are amazing. When I was a high school student, I was attracted to this very colorful title, but it’s completely different from the so-called first experience drama. It is a masterpiece that depicts a passing point from a boy to a young man. I think there are many people who haven’t seen it under this title. Olivier (Renaud Verley), who attends a first-class high school, is attracted to the beautiful Frederik (Natalie Delon). However, Frederik was the mistress of the famous racer Fontana (Robert Hossein). Frederik also has a faint love for Olivier, who draws Frederik’s attention with that hand. Frederik, who is in an unstable position as a mistress, accepts Olivier’s unwavering thoughts and the two are united at the ski resort. The relationship continues after returning to Paris, but one day Olivier meets Fontana’s ambush. When she hears her feelings for Frederik from Fontana, something changes in Olivier … The story goes on with Francis Lai’s masterpiece. Aside from experiencing it, I delicately portray the longing for adults that everyone goes through, but what I want to convey more than that is fashion. Whenever I check out the French Late 60’s, it’s a movie I watch. It goes without saying that Nathalie Delon, who wears a button-down with a slightly high collar and a tartan mini-flared skirt, is exceptionally beautiful, but Renaud Verley’s fashion is also good. After this, a psychedelic movement arrives and French traditional fashion hides its shadow. I wonder if I like France the most, including cars, furniture and sundries. If you haven’t seen the title because it’s a nasty first experience, please take a look. As many of you may know, Robert Hossein, who played the role of Nathalie Delon’s mistress racer, died about a month before Nathalie. I feel that life has something like fate.
