BITTERSWEET JAPANESE SURFING MOVIE
- A Scene at the Sea review by GF
A deaf Janpanese youth finds solace in surfing in this bittersweet tale from Takashi Kitano. It follows the love story between him and his girlfriend, (also deaf), as they are slowl accepted by the other surfers on the beach whom they meet every day. .
The soundtrack is sublime and there are some indelible scenes both funny and moving.
A lovely film all round, whch borrows a device normally used by the Korean Director, Kim Ki Duk, (The Isle, The bow etc), twereby the major characters never utter a word of dialogue, yet dominate the ongoing story.
