Fisherman’s Song] Published in 2020
I was thinking of going to Suffolk, a seaside town where the movie “Yesterday”, which I mentioned earlier, was set up when I had time to go to England, but I changed my mind when I saw this movie.
Go to Southwest Cornwall, the stage for this movie. The story is good, but it is simple, magnificent and the town is cute. You can see from the fashion point of view that you can wear a Fisherman sweater like this.
Music production manager Danny (Daniel Maze) accidentally sees a live performance of the local fishermen’s band “Fisherman’s Friends” when he visits Port Isaac, a small port town in the southwestern part of England. It was Danny who was trying to make a fool of me, but the boss who came to play with him said in a bad joke, “I like a contract and sell it”.
It was Danny who was half suspicious, but without knowing that his boss was joking, he decided to stay alone in the town until a contract was taken. Danny argues the band’s members, saying, “It’s really good, I can definitely sell such a song in London now,” not my own. The fisherman bands who just laugh and don’t get along. Danny wanted to go back to London at once, but gradually he was moved by the band’s song, called the rock in 1752, which he sang. It’s a funny story about how Danny can win the trust of the band, interweaving side stories such as love with the band leader’s daughter who sees it as a lie, the pub management crisis that is the basis of everyone’s heart.
I was wondering if it was a movie like the trendy old man’s sports computer, but it was totally different.
Whether you should prioritize financial success or trust in people, it’s a story similar to the movie “Agent” we covered earlier, but it’s a true story.
You may not feel like watching a movie poster, but the content is good ~ It will be healed.
映画コラム『ウエスタン』Cinema Column 【Western】
July 18, 2020
【ウエスタン】1969年公開 いまだかって西部劇が好きという女性に会った事がないので恐縮ですが今回は西部劇です。 今月6日に映画音楽の巨匠エンニオ・モリコーネさんがなくなられ、頭に浮かぶメロディーの多さ、ニヒルでクールで …
[Western] Published in 1969
I’m sorry to have never met a woman who likes western movies, but this time it’s a western movie.
The movie music master Ennio Morricone was lost on the 6th of this month, and he had lots of melody in his mind, Nihil was cool, passionate, and sometimes horrifying. Of course, I reminded me of movies as well as music.
A rendition of Akira Kurosawa’s “Bouncer” played by Sergio Leone’s “Bouncer in the wilderness”. I think many boys have become fans.
Since that day, I’ve watched Ennio Morricone chase after music-making movies. (It’s quite a flow at the store)
“Elevator on death row”, “New Cinema Paradise”, “Untouchable”, etc. are famous, but there’s no other reason to give up…
This time I would like to introduce “Western” directed by Sergio Leone. I don’t remember any more movies when it comes to music excitement.
The story is that in the western pioneering era, when a station is built, a town is created and people with various dreams come together, and desires swirl. Brett, one of the pioneers, was one of them, but Frank (Henry Fonda), who suddenly appeared in preparation for welcoming his beautiful wife Jill (Claudia Cardinale) to his family, killed them all. Jill, who has become a widow without starting a new life, decides to take revenge on her husband and live on the land she tried to protect.
Frank, who was hired by the railway company, pretends to be the work of the bandit Cheyenne. Jill, desperately trying to survive, joins Cheyenne (Jason Roberts), who tries to get wet, and the mysterious gunman Harmonica (Charles Bronson), and gets closer to the railroad company and Frank, which is the truth of the case.
Moricone’s music excites the movie more than the actor in the duel scene and the majestic last scene, which are the climax of the movie for nearly three hours.
Sergio Leone invited to Hollywood to shoot the so-called macaroni western asked Bernardo Bertrich to draft the original as an homage to the orthodox western drama, it was made in a form that completely ignored the expectations of Hollywood, and as a result the world It’s a masterpiece that surpasses the traditional Western acclaimed by. (I just didn’t want to receive it in the US because the national actor Henry Fonda was appointed as an enemy)
Claudia Cardinale, who plays Jill, is sensual and may not be female, but it is beautiful. In addition, Henry Fonda, the American national actor at the time, played a villain, and it was addicted to it, further enhancing the goodness of the lone gunman Charles Bronson.
Ironically, since this movie, almost no orthodox western plays have been made. It’s about “Unforgivable” directed by Clint Eastwood.
I don’t think women watch Westerns unless there’s a great deal, but if you are interested, please take a look. If you like “Gone with the wind”, you’ll be fine…
5 western movies I think
1. “Shoot towards tomorrow”
2. “Station wagon”
3. “Midday duel”
4. “Wild Bunch”

【ジョジョ・ラビット】2020年公開 ホロコーストを扱った映画は多々ありますが、ここまでユニークにポップに描いた映画は初めてではないでしょうか？ 母親と二人と暮らすいじめられっ子のジョジョは空想の友達アドルフヒトラーの助 …
[Jojo Rabbit] Published in 2020
There are many films that deal with the Holocaust, but isn’t it the first time you have made a unique pop movie?
Jojo, a bullied child who lives with her mother, spends days training to become a good soldier in the Nazi youth group while listening to the advice of my fantasy friend Adolf Hitler.
One day, I notice the existence of a Jewish girl whose mother is hiding in a hidden room at home.
While interacting with the girl, even Jews knew that he was a real human being no different from himself, and believed in the teachings of the Nazis Jojo’s loyalty to the Nazis fluctuated, and the inspiration of his fantasy friend Adolf Hitler became unbelievable. To go. Scarlett Johansson, the mother who hides the girl secretly in anti-Nazi, and Thomas McKenzie, who plays the Jewish girl, are wonderful.
Opening Beatles, Tom Weights, David Boy and other pops resonate comfortably and question nationalism with a completely different taste from conventional Holocaust movies.
Suddenly I got into my 3 best Holocaust movies.
By the way, Holocaust movie ranking
1st place Schindler’s list
2nd Life is Beautiful and Jojo Rabbit
3rd place The lights of Paris are far and the choice of Sophie
No, it’s too dark and sad, I can’t wear it…

【無垢なる証人】2020年公開 法廷物の映画は大好物で機会があれば必ず観るようにしています。大体期待するのは無実の罪で起訴された被告人を貧乏な国選弁護士が弁護を受け持って勝ち目のない大きな法律事務所の検事に立ち向かう、そ …
[Innocent Witness] Published in 2020
Movies in courtrooms are my favorite and I try to watch them whenever I get the chance. What I would expect most is a story of a defendant charged with an innocent crime being confronted by a poorly elected attorney against a large law office prosecutor who cannot win.
The situation in this movie is a little different.
Jung Woo-sung’s protagonist, Suno, is a former human rights lawyer, but in order to repay his father’s debt, he bends his beliefs and moves to a large law firm, which mainly defends large corporations.
In order to change the image, the office undertakes the work of a defense attorney and asks Suno to defend it.
Suno believes in defending the housekeeper who was accused of murder, and the housekeeper who was convicted to help her husband who was trying to commit suicide by covering vinyl. The only witness on the scene is the prosecution’s witness, Jiu, a girl with spectrum syndrome (autism). Suno approaches Jiu and tries to stand on the witness.
Knowing that Jiu can’t greet herself with severe autism, Suno is trying to sue the jury and the judge that he lacks credibility as an eyewitness. Jiu, who doesn’t know that and feels Suno as a kind person, forgives his heart.
And Jiu stands on the witness to start the trial and want to help people…
Attorney Jiu believes that it is a profession that helps people, Suno, an attorney who betrays his feelings, and turns climax.
Jung Woo Sung, who plays an attorney unlike the time of “Ashura”, is still stable, but Kim Hyang Ki who played Jiu is wonderful. Paul Walterhauser of “Richard Jewel” was also good, but I have one here!

[Yesterday] Published in 2019
If I wake up in an accident, I am the only person in the world who knows the Beatles…
The main character, Jack, is giving up trying to become a non-selling musician and star. One day, when a global power outage occurs, a traffic accident leads to a coma.
When Jack, who survived, performed the Beatles’ Yesterday in front of his friends, all of the friends who met were praised, “Wow, that’s a great song, when did you make that song?” Jack was angry that he was making fun of him, but the Beatles had disappeared from Wikipedia, and he was the only person in the world who knew the Beatles masterpiece.
With the release of numerous Beatles hits, Jack goes up to stardom…
Director Danny Boyle, who is good at navigating this fantasy story, and Richard Curtis of that [Love Action] is the expected value because the script is that. I think it’s a plan for these two people, but I wonder if the last way to put it down can be divided into pros and cons. Despite that, it was a movie that I felt like it was a masterpiece even if I was not a Beatles fan.
On the stage of a cute seaside town in Suffolk, England, my dream of “I want to live by the sea in the cute countryside” has rekindled.
The Beatles are of course full of homage to 60’s UK culture. If you like England, please check it out!
映画コラム『パリ、嘘つきな恋』Cinema Column『Rolling to you』
May 15, 2020
【パリ、嘘つきな恋】2019年公開 軽快なリズムでコミカルで楽しく観れて、心に染入るようなテーマがある。そんな恋愛映画が久々に登場しました。 パリ大手のシューズ代理店の支社長ジョスランは、短絡的な女性との関係を繰り返す中 …
[Paris, liar love] Published in 2019
There are some themes that will make your heart immerse yourself in a light rhythm that you can enjoy in a comical way. Such a love movie has appeared after a long time.
Joslan, the president of a footwear agency in Paris, is a middle-aged playboy who repeats relationships with short-circuited women. One day, the neighbor Julie, who just moved to a place where she stopped by after her mother’s funeral, was sitting in her mother’s wheelchair and indulging in music, comes to say hello. When I’m living in a wheelchair to catch my eye, I lie to the beautiful woman’s gentle question, “Can I help you?”
Julie introduces her sister Florence, who is living in a wheelchair due to an accident. Florence was also a wheelchair tennis player, flying around the world as a violinist.
Joslan is attracted to the attractive Florence, which does not make her feel as a disabled person. Why did you reach a wheelchair life? Joslan can’t say the truth to the question, and he will lie down on the lie.
Florence is hoping that his next love will be successful. Every time he goes on a date, Joslan cannot tell the truth because he is told that he is a healthy person and fears that his love will end. I try to involve my secretary with a friend to tell the truth…
While watching with laughter and frustration, at the end I feel like developing as I expected. The theme of the movie is the growth of Joslan who has lived freely through his love with Florence.
This time, Frank Duvosque, who also served as the director and screenwriter, has been since [Disco], but it is reminiscent of his sophisticated acting and sense, Warren Beatty.
Erza Gilberstein, who plays Marie as a secretary, is the best!
DVD is out!
マックイーン モードの反逆児Cinema Column 『Rebel child of McQueen mode』

【マックイーン モードの反逆児】2019年公開 仕事柄ファッションがテーマの映画は観なきゃいけないんですが、実はあまりみないジャンルです。どこか現実逃避できるような目線でチョイスするからかもです。 マックィーンの服に全く …
[Rebel child of McQueen mode] Published in 2019
I have to watch a movie whose theme is work pattern fashion, but it is a genre that I rarely see. Maybe it’s because you choose from a glance that can make you escape from reality.
I wasn’t interested in McQueen’s clothes at all, so I hadn’t seen them properly.
Since it was broadcast on WOWOW, I started watching it with the intention of changing the channel if it was boring.
With a chubby body, an innocent smile, a talk that makes you feel rebellious that you can’t imagine from a visual that is not like a designer, a playful aspect that occasionally shows, I was fascinated by about 10 minutes from the beginning.
Founded by Isabel Blow, a leading figure in the UK fashion world, he was selected as the creative director of the French maison << Givenchy >> while being an Englishman.
After that, McQueen energetically performs shows more than 10 times a year, alternating between his brand and Givenchy, but after parting with Isabel who was a friend and pulling out from Gucci, he will become a drug.
The relationship with fashionable Isabel is depicted everywhere in the movie and is at the core of the movie.
The music is Michael Nyman from “Piano Lesson”. The unique melody excites the movie more intensely.
I didn’t like his clothes when I finished watching them, but I could see them much more interesting than the Doris Van Notten movie I liked.
It’s been edited in a dramatic way, depicting the adorable and painful life of an innocent young British man.
You can see it at all without knowing the designer.
Speaking of which, there was a laughing story that Tucky’s mother in the atelier thought she was a movie of Steve McQueen and bravely went to the movie theater, but I remembered that I saw it until the end.

[Hotel Mumbai] Published in 2019
It’s GW that has become Stay Home Week, but the film featured this time depicts the simultaneous terrorist attacks that occurred in Mumbai, India on November 16, 2008.
The movie begins with boys arriving in Mumbai from Pakistan to achieve the jihad, and the state of the beginning of the day of the gorgeous five-star hotel “Tajmaru Hotel” and the murder of terrorism are drawn alternately. The story goes on as it goes. It makes me realize that terrorism really begins in such a ruthless manner.
In a desperate situation where the special forces will take three days to arrive, a miraculous escape drama will take place at the 5-star hotel “Tajmaru Hotel” where more than 500 people are trapped.
There were 32 casualties at the Tajmar Hotel in the terrorist attacks that left 174 victims, the majority of whom were hotel employees. Why many guests were saved… It is also a feature of this movie that the boys of terrorists are not completely evil, but are depicted as a sad symbol of the side discriminated against by white people.
It’s neither a happy ending nor a bad ending, but in the last scene I feel warm and kind. In addition, there are some good stories that you can’t tell from the facts learned in the movie.
I think that many people have seen Slumdog $ Millionaire, but you can also see that De Patel who played the main character’s boy has grown wonderfully.
It has a rating of completeness as entertainment, so it’s a low rating, but if you want to maintain a healthy feeling, then it’s ★★★★
ザ・エージェントCinema Column 『Jerry Maquire』
April 3, 2020
【ザ・エージェント】1996年公開 コロナウイルスの影響で普通の生活が規制されストレスが溜まる今日この頃ですが、そんな時にどんな映画がオススメか考えました。 暗いのは嫌だし、コメディがいいかと思いましたが、笑えるだけで明 …
The Agent] Released in 1996
At this time of the day when normal life is regulated and stress accumulates due to the influence of the coronavirus, I thought about what kind of movie to recommend at such times.
I don’t like the darkness, and I thought it would be nice to have comedy, but it seems that just laughing will not be enough for tomorrow… (I wish I could laugh).
Sports have been canceled one after another, and professional sports have been postponed greatly, and rugby has been canceled this season. You can also hear the news that professional athletes are down.
In such a case, it is a story of an agent (agent) who negotiates with the sponsor on behalf of the player.
Jerry, a major agency played by Tom Cruise, is an agile agent with a number of top players. He is a top salesman who earns a fee by raising the player’s annual stick with his skillful talk.
One day, the client falls to the bed with a concussion. Nevertheless, Jerry, who prioritizes the promises made by the sponsor, encourages him not to rest and to resume playing. The player is discouraged, and the player’s son places his middle finger on Jerry.
Jerry, wondering about such a job, proposes to the company a reform plan to reduce the number of players in the client and treat the players more carefully. As a result, the company is dismissed as a disturbing element.
While dispelling the shock, when I leave the company, I call on my colleagues to “create a new agent company with me,” but no one raises their hands.
The only one who left me is to leave the company with a slightly dull accountant, Dorothy, played by Rennie Zelviger, who is not in the business field.
Jerry, who has become free, is eager to pull out his main client,
All my coworkers are ahead and rejected.
Jerry, who was at a loss, was the only one who was able to sign a contract with one of his former client rod, Cuban Gutting Jr. He is an American football player who has crossed the mountain pass and continues to say “Show me money!” Realizing that he is a player who has crossed the pass, Rod urges Jerry to think of his family and make a good contract.
Rod, who is not already a client star player, Jerry weighs a big star player who is likely to become a client.
Dorothy and Dorothy’s stepchild will heal Jerry, who struggles with the belief in taking care of the players and the conflicting client requests. The flow of drawing the bond between these three people is very good and very relaxing.
Cuba Havana Gutting Jr. and Renee Zellviger are two of the best performers in the movie.
After this, what’s going on with Rod and Jerry… It’s fun watching the movie.
I’m embarrassed, but I have a similar experience when I was younger, and I watch this movie when things have gone wrong since I watched this movie in sympathy with the main character, Jerry.
When one’s belief (or conscience) conflicts with financial success, one loses direction. In such a case, it is a movie that whispers when asking yourself for the best answer.
I have to watch it…
おおかみこどもの雨と雪Cinema Column 『Wolf Children's Rain and Snow』
March 10, 2020
【おおかみこどもの雨と雪】2012年公開 先月末の安部首相の小中高の臨時休校要請により思いがけず長～い春休みをお子様と過ごすことになり、子供のストレスのやり場を考える毎日にぐったりされているお母さんも多いのではないでしょ …
[Wolf Children’s Rain and Snow] Released in 2012
At the end of last month, Prime Minister Abe’s request for temporary closing of elementary, junior high, and high school unexpectedly caused him to spend a long spring break with his child, and many mothers may be tired of thinking about the place of stress for their child. Introducing movies that you would like to see with your child at such times.
The story goes on in the form of a daughter (snow) who was born between two mothers (flowers) who fell in love when they met “Wolf man”.
A female college student, “Hana,” falls in love with a simple, straightforward, young man with whom she met in the classroom. The man confesses that he is a descendant of a wolf man born between a human and a wolf.
Flowers accept it and give birth to two children. The daughter “snow” and son “rain” who were born grow up as wolves who are humans but can also be wolves.
The rain is born and his father’s man is dead. Abandoned to raise two children who could not transform themselves in the city, Hana leaves the village and relocates to an old rural house with many animals.
Snow wants to live as a human being without fear of animals and human beings, whereas rain is introverted and attracts the mountains without accustoming to elementary school, and meets teachers in the mountains. Hana begins to work as a curator in Shimimura, who has become accustomed to the villagers.
Meanwhile, the appearance of a transfer student (Kusadaira) who says that snow is “beast smell” will change the elementary school life of snow. It seems that it’s a barrel, so it’s rain that avoids Kusadaira, and Kusadaira that keeps it around. And the incident happens…
I hadn’t even seen it, but when my daughter showed me a series of Ghibli works when I was in kindergarten, I was attracted to a jacket and borrowed it when I entered elementary school. I was thinking that it would be good if my daughter stepped up, but it was a movie that made me feel like I was a parent.
In addition, I remember that my daughter was young and felt that she felt love, communication, and living in the countryside, and said, “It was better than Kiki’s Delivery Service.” (By the way, I’m addicted to Natsume Yujincho now)
It’s not a type of movie that kills time, but I think it’s a movie that appeals to people of all ages without getting tired if they are elementary school students or older. Please share the excitement with your child!
