Greta released in 2019
A woman who picks up a bag picked up on the subway kindly delivers it to the owner’s home and gets caught up in a world of madness
Francis “Chloe Grace Moretz” is a waitress who works in a high-class restaurant without recovering from the sadness of losing her mother. One day Francis picks up a misplaced BAG on the subway on his way home and delivers it to the owner’s house.
The owner, Greta “Isabelle Huppert”, was an old woman who lost her husband and lived alone.
Greta makes tea to thank him and tells his story. Francis puts Greta on his mother, and Greta is happy to have a conversation partner. The two become friends as if to fill each other’s sense of loss.
I think it’s more interesting to see what the story is like, so that’s it for the synopsis.
Stephen Rea came out at the end of the game and I was surprised, but the director was Neil Jordan of that “The Crying Game”. It was the sharpest since “Interview with Vampire”.
For Isabelle Huppert fans, I think Paul Verhoeven’s “ELLE” was better, but Isabelle Huppert in New York is also a picture.
The story unfolds rapidly from the development of old and new star actresses cuddling and warming each other in New York.
“Robin Williams” There was a scary movie called Robin Williams Stalker, but it’s a stylish and mellow world directed by Neil Jordan. Fashion is also quite retro and gorgeous.
I’m scared ~

“ Judy Beyond the Rainbow” released in 2019
This movie focuses on the later years of Judy Garland, who died suddenly at the age of 47 in 1968.
Judy (Rene Zellweger) suddenly became a stardom in “Wizard of Oz”, but due to the effects of stimulants and sleeping pills for dieting from childhood, neurosis and drug addiction surfaced from the late 20s, and he was late. The number of slapsticks and work slapsticks has increased, and in his later years he will live the life of the day while holding two children on a tour of a small theater without a movie job. In order to have a stable life with his two children, he will undertake a more than a month performance in London, which was still popular at the time.
Judy will be able to survive the first day with great singing ability, with the help of manager Rosalin, if he is not in a state where he cannot even rehearse due to neurosis and alcoholism. A warm bandmaster, theater owner, and London fan. I should have finished the performance as it is, but …
Go to the climax while drawing the interaction with the fans, the love with the fifth husband, and the contact with the theater manager Rosalin.
Set in London at Late 60’s, the story goes on with the scent of when UK culture was at its best.
It’s so wonderful that I should have watched it without thinking that the starring was Renée Zellweger.
I’m a sad movie lover, but I’m thinking of showing it to my hateful companion.
The last telop “The heart is not how much you loved …” makes me think.

【モルグ 死霊病棟】2020年公開 今回は怖〜いお話。 この時期、怖い思いをしたくてTSUTAYAで物色しますが大抵は失敗します。チェーンソー系から悪霊ものまで幅広く観ますが当たる確率は低いです。特に死霊とか病棟とかが付 …
[Morgue］Published in 2020
This is a scary story.
At this time, I want to be scared and try to find something on TSUTAYA, but I usually fail. I see a wide range from chainsaws to evil spirits, but the probability of hitting is low. Last year, I enjoyed “Endless Exoism: The Possession of Hannah Grace”.
This movie is a Paraguay movie and the atmosphere is a little different.
Diego, who was driving while calling her, accidentally hit someone.
Diego was heading to her, but he escapes from there and returns to his home.
The job of the night watchman of the hospital arrives at Diego, who cannot sleep even after returning home.
After a simple job transfer at the morgue, he groaned out of nowhere around Diego, a suspicious shadow on the monitor, and gradually Diego lost his sanity.
The movie progresses in an atmosphere that seems to be independent production that can not be said in Paraguayan movies, but at the end it is a little convincing way to finish. It’s not a Yotsuya ghost story, but the main character who is driven in is scared that I can not think it is very acting.
It seems that it is a true story, although it may have been adapted.
☆ is set to 2, but if you look at it alone at night, it will jump to about 3.5!
Last year’s scariest movie was “Heledi Tally/Succession”.
In fact, my wife says she’s not afraid horror off western movies, so she usually laugh and sleep. When I saw movie of this movie, she was sleeping.
This movie was too scared ,so she did’t laugh and sleep. I think that there are many movie fans who have seen it, but if you like scared, please take a look, it is a super first class.

【スィング・キッズ】2020年日本公開 とにかくタップダンスがかっこいい、過去の映画でもコットンクラブなどタップダンスが素晴らしい映画はありましたが、この映画は東洋人が主役です。 「ラ・ラ・ランド」のような華やかさはあり …
[Swing kids] Published in Japan in 2020
Anyway, tap dance is cool, and there were some movies in the past where tap dance was great, such as the Cotton Club, but this movie is dominated by Orientals.
It’s not as gorgeous as “La La Land”, but it’s a cute and innocent step. Watching it became hot.
Under the Korean War, the newly appointed chief of the Geoje Island POW camp, which is controlled by the US forces in the South Korea, plans a project to form a dance team with POWs to improve the image of the outside world.
Around Broadway’s black Broadcomer Jackson, a North Korean hero’s younger brother, trouble maker Ro Gisu, an interpreter, Jan Panne, who has to make money for his family, and his wife is separated. “King Byung Sam,” a civilian prisoner of war, and malnourished Chinese with outstanding dance sense gather to form “Swing Kids.”
The story progresses to a climax recital with famous songs such as the Beatles and David Boy masterpieces and the promised Benny Goodman’s “Sing Sing Sing”.
I think the final ending is where the pros and cons are divided, but what Kang Hyun-chul, the director of the masterpiece “Tacha,” wanted to say the most is convinced if it is unreasonable.
“Fuckin’ ideology” I’m sad…
The end-roll dance scene is painful.

[DOGMAN] Published in 2019
Basically, I’d like you to watch the movies because they are so good, but sometimes I can’t say that they are very good, but there are movies that I find fascinating. This time it’s such a movie.
I was interested in seeing this jacket, but I think there are many people who haven’t seen it because it looks dark. I was a little reluctant to watch it.
It is set in a deserted fishing port in Italy, which is the exact opposite of the last movie.
The main character Marcello (Marcello Fonte) runs a dog trimming salon called “Dogman”.
Marcello is a stubborn and poor person, but he lives happily as he goes to play scuba diving on vacation with his daughter who was playing soccer with friends in the town and his wife who left. However, it is used by Simone (Edoard Peche), which is violent and disliked by residents of the town, and is used as a run. When Simone tells me that I am a friend, I cannot help but refuse to get in trouble.
Residents of the town will consult with Marcello and begin the process of expelling Simone.
One day, Marcello bears a stick without being able to refuse the profitable story brought by Simone. However, the day after the crime, Marcello was easily arrested by the police. Simone’s main offense police attempt to testify that Simone’s work was done, but Marcello stubbornly refuses and is convicted and imprisoned on behalf of Simone.
Waiting for Marcello, who was released a year later, was a day like a village eight minutes, where no one was treated by the residents. Marcello, who has lost all his credit, heads to Simone to regain everything…
Marcello Fonte is an actor who plays such a man, who is a small child because he is innocent and indecisive, but he is not disappointed by being dependent on a strong person. I am convinced that it is the Best Actor Award at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival. ..
There are various kinds of dogs, but if you like dogs, you can not say that you should watch it.
I can watch the movie until the end as I feel the scary feeling of the actor that makes my wife who hates dark and sad movies watch until the end.
There are 3 stars, but depending on the viewer, 1 or 5 such movies.

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”

[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…

[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!
