Kuroi ame

Cannes Film Festival 2015 is finished on May 24th!

I, personally had paid attention to one of the juries, his name is Xavier Dolan, a French Canadian director/ very good looking man. I follow his Instagram as well and it was pleasure to see him wearing so many nice looking suits for this 12 days...
Oh, this is his speech last year at Cannes when he got a Jury Prize just in case you are interested in.

Speaking of Cannes, Shohei Imamura, a Japanese movie director got Palme d'Or before. I watched his film named 'Kuroi Ame (Black Rain) 黒い雨' the other night.
The story is about an aftermath of an atomic bomb of Hiroshima.
The movie was made in middle of 1980's, so actually it's not so old but it looks old because of the way he edits.
Japanese scenery has been changed a lot compare to the one in this film, but how people think and act have not changed so much I feel. So it is good idea to watch it before or after coming to Japan to understand what Japanese people are.


This is what I often do before going to travel to other countries actually.
But Mad Max did not help to understand Australian people...Anyways, I am looking forward to seeing new Mad Max in June!
