【Yesterday】2019年公開 もし自分が事故にあって目覚めたら、世界中で自分だけがビートルズを知っている唯一の人間になっていたら、、、、、。 主人公のジャックは売れないミュージシャン、スターになることを諦めかけて …
[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』
May 4, 2020
【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.
ホテル・ムンバイCinema Column 『Hotel Mumbai』

【ホテル・ムンバイ】2019年公開 Stay Home ウィークになってしまったGWですが、今回取り上げる映画は2008年11.16日にインド・ムンバイで起こった同時多発テロを描いています。 ジハードを成し遂げるために少 …
[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!
殺人の追憶Cinema Column 『Memory of Murder』
February 20, 2020
【殺人の追憶】2003公開 先日のアカデミー賞で作品賞はじめ4部門で受賞した「パラサイト」韓国ポン・ジュノ監督の作品。 「パラサイト」はアカデミー賞受賞前に観ましたがポン・ジュノ監督のファンとしてひいき目でみても他のノミ …
[ Memory of murder] 2003 released
“Parasite” won by the Academy Award for Best Work in 4 categories including director Jun Joon-ho’s work.
I saw “Parasite” before receiving the Academy Award, but as a fan of Director Jun Juno, I thought it would be inferior to other nominated works even if I looked back on it.
I was surprised to hear that I won the 4th category and thought that the Academy Awards had fallen, but I think it’s the charm of American filmmakers… (Because the atmosphere of Ponjuno’s winning scene was good).
But I think it’s a big upset since 2007, when my favorite director, Martin Scorsese, won the director award for his remake “Deparded”.
I can understand the granting of gratitude at the time of Martin Scorsese, but this time it seems like it is a little service to the Trump administration who threatens to pull out the US troops from South Korea. (My delusion)
The most notable one is the screenplay prize and Morse code, which is interesting, but nothing is connected. I thought that it was a bit unreasonable to connect the smell.
Still, Lee Jung Eun, who was the first housekeeper to be kicked out, was good… (The only piece of this movie)
I love Korean movies, but if I could win an Academy Award for that amount, I’d like to send it to Suo Director of “Shall we Dance”. It’s my bitterness that I expected too much to be the best movie directed by Pon Jun Ho.
I think that many of you became fans of Korean movies by watching “Recollection of the Murder” that I will discuss today, but what did you guys think?
I watched it for a long time because I was doing it with wowwow the other day, but if you are interested in watching this masterpiece, parasite, I would definitely like to see it.
It is drawn based on the serial murder case that aimed only at women who actually happened in the peaceful rural area of South Korea in the late 1980s.
There are consecutive murders of girls in rural areas with good security.
During the investigation, a local detective, played by Song Kang-ho, identifies a young man with intellectual disability as the criminal, and compels himself torture and falsify evidence. The suspect who didn’t seem sane told the killing method and seemed to solve the case, but the young detective (Sang Kyung) who came from Seoul who participated in the investigation saw the suspect’s unspreaded hand and the crime was unsuccessful. I disagree that it is possible. Torture becomes a problem and the suspect is released. The error of this initial investigation will cause the 3rd and 4th murder. Still, it turns out that the crime was happening on a rainy day when the radio was singing the song “Melancholy Letters,” and a young man requesting the song emerged on the investigation line. And the case started to move…
Song Gung-ho was good, of course, but Kim Sang-kyung, who played the young detective from the city, is great for this movie. Both became actors representing Korea.
Images reminiscent of old Japanese movies, detailed productions, fear of criminals approaching without violent scenes, and screenplays are perfect.
I think this movie is the gold standard of Korean movies.

【Ceat la vieセラヴィ！】2018年公開 前回に引き続き登場人物が多い映画のご紹介です。2012年公開のフランス映画「最強のふたり」のエリック・トレダノ＆オリビエ・ナカシュ監督が、2015年のパリ同時多発テロ事 …
[Ceat la vie Seravi! ] Published in 2018
It is an introduction of the movie with many characters continuing from the last time. Directed by Eric Tredano & Olivier Nakas in the 2012 French movie “The Strongest Two”, he decided to make it in order to regain his kindness and laughter in Paris after the 2015 terrorist attacks in Paris.
Prom planner Max, who has more than 30 years of experience, was thinking of retiring, but he will receive a wedding request from celebrity Pierre and Helena. As a culmination of the past, we arrange orchestras and singers in an old castle in the suburbs and gather a large number of staff to prepare a gorgeous wedding.
The wedding should have been successful with careful preparation…
On the day of the wedding, the vocal of a band with a strong assertiveness that is not suitable for a wedding reception, the request of a troublesome groom with a narcissist who cares about a little thing, and a series of mistakes by staff members gathering I will proceed. And finally, the anger of the protagonist Max, who takes pride in his work, explodes on the staff…
Is there something like this? That’s a terrible thing to happen, but the scene is very good.
If you draw the connection between people, the best two people will give you a French slapstick comedy, and at the end it will be a heartwarming movie with a smile.
だれもが愛しいチャンピオンCinema Column 『Champion』

【だれもが愛しいチャンピオン】2019年12月公開 明けましておめでとうございます。今年もいっぱい映画観て新作旧作問わず、取り上げていきたいと思います。 年末年始は皆さんいかがお過ごしでしたか?「めぐり逢い」を観てロマン …
[A champion who everyone loves] Released in December 2019
Happy new year. I would like to see a lot of movies this year and pick up new and old movies.
How was everyone spending the year-end and New Year holidays? I wonder if there was someone who spent a romantic night watching “Meeting”.
I was so happy to watch a Spanish movie after a long time. I’ve been a fan of Spanish movies since I saw “Talk to Har,” but in many cases, I’ve taken up unusual cuts such as those from Guillermo’s movies, and set them apart from the British, American, and French movies. I will. Also, the fact that it is clear in black and white is a feature that you can enjoy as entertainment without being much thought.
This year’s “The Champion Everyone Loves” released at the end of the year is a sports movie that is unique among Spanish movies.
Marco, a professional basketball coach, is dismissed due to his impatient and selfish character, which causes an accident with discoloration. Instead of being sentenced to imprisonment, I am ordered to teach the Amigos basketball team for people with intellectual disabilities as a social service. Marco, who is self-centered and arrogant, cannot accept a teammate with a disability, and tries to mourn, anger, and throw out his duties. Even with such a start, the team will aim for the national competition. Marco’s inside changes as he touches their innocence and passion through practice, and the team’s excellent attack begins…
Although it is a solid development where the story goes as expected, all the performers are wonderful and all ending up with everyone playing the leading role, I am convinced by the title of the movie.

【めぐり逢い】1957年公開 恋愛映画の王道といえば思い出す映画は人によってそれぞれ違うとは思います。アトリエのオードリーや石ちゃんに聞くと「あまり観ないし、観ても忘れる」といった拙い答えが返ってきます。僕にとっては「ロ …
[Meeting] Published in 1957
Speaking of the royal road of love movies, I think that different people remember different movies. When I asked Audrey and Ishi-chan in the atelier, I got a bad answer, “I don’t see it much and I forget it”. For me, “Rome’s holiday”, “Love”, “Travel”, new things like “Ghost”, “Notting Hill’s lover”, it’s not new ~ (laughs) It’s true that lately it doesn’t hit the box office I feel that the number of movies that are based on has decreased.
From Christmas to New Year, if you can see the mandarin oranges while viewing them, this [Meeting] is recommended.
Nicky, a second-class painter played by Cary Grant and Terry, a singer played by Deborah Kerr, met during a voyage, but they were attracted to each other despite their fiances. ..
Nicky, who abandoned his engagement six months later, waits until the closing on the top floor of the Empire State Building where Promise is promised, but Terry doesn’t show up…
Nicky, who was convinced of the reunion, became angry and desperately betrayed.
When I somehow healed my wounds, I unexpectedly came to see Terry again. From here onwards, it’s fun to watch.
When I first went to New York, I was impressed when I looked up at the Empire State Building from the same position as Terry and moved up to the top floor and sighed.
If you haven’t seen it, please take a look at this Cary Grant and Deborah Car version first. If you like it, there are also remakes of Warren Beatty and Annette Bening, so please compare them.
I just continued with old movies, but next year I would like to pick up new ones as much as possible. Thank you for your continued support.
Have a good year.
