There's nothing special happens throughout the movie, at least from my perspective. That being said, our real life is just like that, isn't it? No matter how deeply you feel sorrow, life goes on, and not many people around you notice your pain. Everything is so subtle, quiet, and calm at the surface.

Moreover, I noticed that there was no music throughout the movie. No incidental music even at the climax where the protagonist's sorrow had to be depicted vividly. Every sound I heard in the movie was the one from everyday life. Realizing that, I thought I found the reason why the production(or the director) had made this movie to be a black-and-white motion picture. The purpose might have been leading audiences to feel the sounds more real, by having their sense concentrate more on listening rather than looking.

This is an antithesis to Hollywood style entertainment movies. In a sense, this is a pursuit of the ultimate reality.

I was impressed by a scene, that was almost the last part of the movie. I was intrigued by the fact that you are overwhelmed by natural sounds when redundant music is minimized. The sounds of waves in that scene were really scary. After that, spontaneously I burst into tears in seeing the next scene.

When you see the end-title crawl, you may think that the attraction of this movie has oozed through into your mind. I think I can recommend it to you, anyway.

この映画の中では、特に何も劇的なことは起こらない。少なくとも、私の感覚では。でも、現実の生活ってそうじゃないかな…。どんなに深く傷つき、悲しみや苦しみを負っていても、日々は続き、周りのほとんどの人は、あなたの痛みには気づかない。全てはとても微細で、静かで、表面上は穏やかだ。

さらに、映画全体を通して音楽がない。主人公の悲しみが一番強く描かれるべきクライマックスのところですら、効果音楽がなかったのだ。映画の中の音は、全て普通の生活音だ。そして、それに気づくと、モノクロ映画にした理由がわかる気がする。色をあえて見せないことで、視覚に割かれる感覚を聴覚に集中させ、観客に音をよりリアルに感じさせるためだったのかもしれないと思った。

ハリウッド映画に対するアンチテーゼ。ある意味、究極のリアリティの追及。

余計な音楽が無いことで、自然の音がこんなにも胸に迫ることがあるんだと感心したのが、最後のほうの海のシーン。波の音が本当に怖い。そして、その後のシーンでは、不覚にも涙が出てしまった。

終わってみれば、じわじわと良い映画だった。地味におススメです。 ^^
