ザ・エージェントCinema Column 『Jerry Maquire』

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.
歌えロレッタ 愛のためにCinema Column 『Coal Miner‘s Daughter』
December 9, 2019
【歌えロレッタ 愛のために】1981年公開作品 酷い映画も多いですが、やっぱりアメリカ映画には傑作も多いですね。 アメリカの伝説的なカントリー歌手ロレッタ・リンの半生を描いた作品です。 僕はリンダロンシュタットが大好きで …
[Singing Loretta For Love] Published in 1981
There are many terrible movies, but after all American movies also have many masterpieces.
It is a work depicting the half-life of legendary American singer Loretta Lynn.
I love Lindaron Stadt and listen to the country as well (there are years of age), but in general there are many people who do not listen to the country, so I think there are many people who have not watched this movie.
Born as a daughter of a coal miner in Kentucky, Lin (Sissy Spasik) was married to a young man returning from the army before he was 14 years old (Tommy Lee Jones). Dou became aware of Rin’s singing power and began to sing in public, and Rin fascinated the people with his singing voice. Due to the loneliness of his wife’s inaccessibility, his husband drowns in alcohol and leaves Lin.
As a price of success, Rin wears his nerves in the days of loneliness…
I think it’s one of the movies in the early 80’s that the American movie industry is rewarding as it turns to blockbuster (commercial blockbuster).
Not to mention the singing, Sissy Spasik, who plays Lynn all the time, and Tommy Lee Jones, who plays the role of the husband who supports Lin all the time, are wonderful, but also the country style fashion that changes from 50’s to 60’s and early 70’s You can enjoy it.

1回目のコラムをなんで『太陽がいっぱい』 にしなかったんだろうと思っていた矢先にマリーラフォレさんが亡くなられました。 それで2回目は【太陽がいっぱい】 言わずと知れた1960年公開 ルネ・クレマン監督の不朽の名作 アラ …
Why the first column is “the sun is full”
Marie Laforet died just as I thought I wouldn’t.
So the second time [the sun is full]
Needless to say, released in 1960: Rene Clement’s timeless masterpiece
A movie that Randley played by Alandron awakens to jealousy while acting with a rich friend, and tries to take over the life of his friend with his beautiful lover.
I think I first saw this movie when I was in the third year of middle school or in the first year of high school, but I remember that I admired the beauty of Marju played by Marie La Foret and longed for Arandron’s coolness.
The second appreciation was about a year after I came to Tokyo when I was about 20 years old.I was jealous of those who were blessed with me because I was already rushing without knowing the life of Ripley. I sympathized with Ripley, maybe I remembered my heart at this time, but I was fascinated by the movie.
When I watch it now, there is a scene where Philip who plays Maurice Ronne seems to be a surprisingly good person, I wonder if I became round or changed to life more than Philip, or I became a disgusting guy, ..
The sad and sad last with a melody composed by Nino Rota is intense, and I don’t know the ending any more.
The border sailor color T-shirt that I have been making for several years was made in the image of Marie La Foret, who played the heroine of this movie, and was named “Marie”.
I’m taking a break from production now, but I would like to make a comeback soon.

My name is Sarahsaraman and I am in charge of the movie column after the website was renewed.
We will pick up recommended movies, old and new, from about 200 movies that can be watched in one year, including DVDs.
Of course, it’s a masterpiece, but horror, suspense, action,
I also love the B genre of all genres, so I would like to cover it sometimes.
Add a star as objectively as possible
There are 5 perfect movies without any complaints.
I would appreciate it if you could refer to it.
The first one is a little adult omnibus movie
[Berlin I Love You]
Germany continues to accept immigrants from the Middle East.
A short omnibus woven by various people who come to Berlin.
Each story is short, but it develops while concluding with a light and stylish conversation.
There are so many actors that Helen Mirren hazes and I want to see them for a longer time
While having a dilemma that will change to the next story while you are there,
It’s only two hours in the blink of an eye until the last.
It’s a movie about love, and it’s also a human movie that asks how to live.
To tell the big story, the sequence of “dream and hope”.
Don’t miss Lenny Zellweger’s surprising role too!
