Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


1、 Sonata was selected into the top ten of the French film manual at that time. It is Kitano’s landmark work on the international stage.

My favorite ending of this film is the killing after rushing into the enemy camp when Beiye takes revenge. It eliminates his usual violence and blood and does not directly show the killing scene, so I can’t see flying bullets, bloody faces, ferocious faces, rivers of blood and Howling scenes, Instead, he used a section of light, shadow and sound effect with the color of German Expressionism, a panicked face and frightened eyes, which was quite unexpected and had the style of a master.

Kitano’s rendering of the atmosphere is unique. It is typically a cold scene before the behavior, a still lens, a close-up of facial expressions, and then the scene after the behavior. This extremely calm treatment method probably comes from the jumping mirror language of French New Wave Godard and others, which can only be called vinegar now.

In one film, there is a short, cramped and quiet period of “wind and rain are coming and clouds are all over the building” on the island. Killers play games and make fun of people. This section focuses on Kitano’s funny.

I especially like the fierce “kill” violence after the quiet still lens. This is the “my style and my show” of boss Kitano. It’s really impressive.

In the middle of the film, a period of peace is like a long collective holiday of gangsters. The killing is hidden in a vast blue sea and blue sky. The smell of blood is faintly smelled in the wind. Before death comes, you can spend time with games and chase the last colorful of life. Gorgeous fireworks, children’s fun pranks, a wayward rainstorm, a group of funny creatures, a doomed dream, a pair of waiting eyes and a lonely gunshot, a shocking story is so deeply branded in my mind that I have to admire Kitano’s determination and innocence, the coolness of iron blood and determination, and only genius.

It’s too late to carefully experience the smile from the long holiday. The blood blooms wantonly on the brain. Just after enjoying the warm and joyful release of the heart, the cruel killing comes quietly. After the happy game, in the face of sudden death, he reveals the relief of birth and death. Therefore, the boss after revenge ends on his own on the road waiting for women. Kitano’s thinking about death is always hazy and full of Oriental Zen. Death is the ultimate solution, but it is the curiosity when life first appears. Life and death are extremely infatuated.

The lyrical pen is used to show violence. Violence is the communication carrier of male friendship. From stabbing a companion to not knowing each other, it stems from the heroic spirit of going to death together. The body that stops the bullet for the boss in the elevator seems to be a kind of one-to-one relationship between men. At this time, violence turns into romance and death shines, the so-called “Violence Aesthetics”.
