Japanese Story

This is the second time i have been emotionally moved by Japanese .
Although this is a Hollywood film, the hero is japanese.Gotaro Tsunashima acts as Tachibana the main character. He travels in Australian desert countryside accompanied by an Australian geologist Sandy ( Toni Collete). The Australian is puzzled and frustrated with the japanese attitude and approach. Finally the Japanese opens up and bridges the communication gap and help her to get out of the desert. In the process he starts liking her which leads to reciprocation and love. When the love and understanding starts blossoming, he drowns in a lake and dies and leaving sandy completely traumatised. The Japanese wife comes to take the body. While Sandy cries that it was her fault leading him to the lake, the Japanese wife shows the typical control over her emotions and leaves an envelope containing the fotos of sandy with her husband. The movie brings out the contrasting cultures of the brash down under and the subtle japanese character. Tachibana explains how the word" hai " can mean yes or no or maybe depending upon the tone and way of saying it.
I was moved by the Japanese character. The Japanese songs played during the sad moments of the story touched my soul reminding me of Floating weed, the japanese film which triggered this blog.

50 first dates

saw this yesterday.
This is a typical Adam Sandler comedy. he meets Drew Barrymore in a cafe and she invites him for breakfast the next day. But when he goes the following day she does not recognise him and drives him away as a stalker. he discovers that she had suffered brain damage in an accident. Thereafter her memory stays for only one day and during her sleep in the night it all goes away. But she remembers only what happened on that particular day , the accident took place. The rest is romance and comedy and caribbean beach resort, where the story takes place.

The friend of Sandler tells him the girl fits perfectly to the casanova-type hero who seeks vacation flings and avoids commitment.
There is another character whose memory lasts only for ten seconds. oops.. sometimes it happens to people in parties where they " are glad to meet u " twice or thrice during the same evening.
I enjoyed the movie and recommend to friends.

blue is my colour of passion and inspiration

Blue is the sea
moving and waving
Blue are your eyes
darting and striking

Blue is the sky
opening my horizon
Blues are sadness
fermenting poems

Blue is a song
of cristian castro
Blue is the ink
penning my feelings

Blue is a club
of poets and muses
Blue could be light
profound at times

Blue makes me smile
sad sometimes
Blue is my color
of passion and inspiration
