2つ目の窓 Reviews:

This review is not about the movie but the crude American taste.Whenever my cinema-savvy mates criticised Hollywood, I'd jokingly dismiss their arguments, telling I play action-packed, fun movies for afternoons and that Hollywood has nice production. I stand corrected.This movie has been given a 5 by metacritic. Check out the reviews. They tell silent moments are awkward.. or that stares are long... I had an epiphany that Americans and their layman critics have now no appreciation for an current nice work when they see one. Everybody likes a large Mac but in no method it means you can slam a 5-michelin star cuisine.I everytime acknowledged Hollywood movies test to appeal to the lowest common denominator. It makes them fun to a point. But I realised today it's not just their audience that is unnaturally confused with junk, but apparently American choose critics are now the lowest common denominator.P.S. IMDb will not be a universal source until it goes beyond Hollywood standards.


No, the last movie of Naomi Kawase, internationally known as "Still the water", is not a movie reserved to "intellectual people", as I heard recently. If we refer to "Last year at Marienbad" (Resnais-1961) as a movie for"intellectual people", we search no common point, except slowness of the rhythm. The spectator could only follow the example of the female heroin, Kyoko, who, in one stage at the beginning, dives into the sea with all her clothes (except her shoes), and play this bath, meeting joyfully with the old-fellow fisherman, "PapyTortoise".Following her example, we, spectators, could dive into the film, and play the enjoy of sunlight across the branches of the old banyan, just in front of the terrace of Kyoko's house; play the meals lovely prepared by Kyoko's father (so much various from the meals eaten in a restaurant at Tokyo by Kaito, Kyoko's lover, and his father; and fully opposed to the meal left by Kaito's mother in the refrigerator); play even the soft departure of Isa, Kyoko's mother, after a long illness, among songs and dances.I love so much this warm celebration of la joie de vivre, typically a Japanese one, as, after every disaster, typhoon, earthquake or tsunami, we see Japanese folks build again, with a powerful faith in life, all that has been destroyed.


Death, love, commitment...the film treats those question in a very human rhythm, and surprises you in its deepness. I was moved to tears.It's set in a paradisaical coast of a Japanase island, full of light and sea. The actors are impressively real and beautiful.Japanase melody being played and sang was a true plus too. The several scenes event in Tokyo were a really nice reflection to appreciate better the lifestyle in that countryside.the last third of the film was maybe a tiny bit slow to reveal itself, but it saved some nice scenes and was matching the rest of it.It's also socially and culturally very enriching and interesting. Leaves you with real surprises about the method these children behave towards losing someone, towards relationships, etc.
