[Movie] Kiiroi Namida

[Moved from my old blog.]

Starring: Ninomiya Kazunari, Aiba Masaki, Ohno Satoshi, Sakurai Sho, Matsumoto Jun, Kashii Yu.

This story follows the journey of 4 young men through the summer of 1963. 4 aspiring young artists. Eisuke (Nino) a manga artist, Kei (Ohno) a painter, Shoichi (Aiba) a singer and Ryuzo (Sho) a novelist. The four struggled through the summer with less than enough to eat, often pawning their valuables or find money through Pachinko. MatsuJun plays a rice store worker who helped and encouraged the 4 through the summer.

This time, there is no synopsis of the story. =D

I am going to instead just focus on what I think the story is trying to convey. (Whoa, that's rare of me to try to be so... 'deep')

The title of the story literally translates to mean 'Yellow Tears'.

Life back in the 60s was hard. The four young men were trying to follow their dreams.

All they wanted was to do what they like for a living.

When Summer began, the three were living at Eisuke's house and then put together enough money to last them through the summer through a series of events.

During the summer, they did exactly what they wanted. They painted, they drew, they wrote, they sang.

This was their idea of freedom.

Without having to worry about food. They did exactly what they wanted.

They thought they could finally find a way to make it work.

If only life could be so perfect.

Should life always turn out the way we planned it, there would only be happy people around.

To live, sometimes, we have to give up what we want most.

We have to sometimes give up what is dear to us.

Life doesn't always turn out the way we want it to.

Shit happens.

We could have dreamed of moving mountains, travelling to space when we were younger.

Such ideals have to be abandoned before we find ourselves depressed about how our lives turned out to be.

Perhaps the best way to live is to just take whatever you could and not hope for the near impossible.

By the end of the summer, their dreams shattered into pieces as they all head off to follow their own paths.

Ah I ran out of things to say. Let me comment on the pictures.

MatsuJun's part is small, he was probably busy filming "HYD" and "Bambino".

If you are wondering why are some parts of the screencap above mosaic-ed, I will tell you that I mosaic-ed it because it has Sakurai Sho and Ohno Satoshi's bare asses.

It is something normal in Japan, grown men bathed together naked with their... equipments out in the open as well.

But... I fear people might not want to see things to such details, so I mosaic-ed it.

And... I am off.

T_T Nice movie though.
