Rewatching Kiraware Matsuko no Issho (Memories of Matsuko) reminded me just how much I love this movie. The music is fantastic, the story is engaging, but most of all, each scene is absolutely stunning. Not to mention, where else can you find Nakatani Miki, Eita, Iseya Yusuke, Tanihara Shosuke, Kudo Kankuro, Kurosawa Asuka, Shibasaki Kou, Takeda Shinji, Arakawa Yoshiyoshi, Kimura Kaela, Tsuchiya Anna, and Bonnie Pink (just to name a few), all in a single movie?

Here are some screencaps of my favorite shots for your, as well as my own, visual pleasure. A fair warning though: there's A WHOLE LOT of color packed into this collage. Only minor spoilers ahead, if any, so don't worry if you haven't seen it yet. :Dv

Aww, so pretty!! Makes me wanna rewatch it again XD

I also love this movie. It's simply brilliant. A fantastic piece of Japanese cinema. Magnificent to the smallest scenes!! Haha I could write an essay about how much I like this one ;)

And I like that onigiri icon :lol

It took me awhile to get those screencaps because I kept being sucked in by all the pretty and forgot all about taking them. XD

Haha, I would totally love to read said essay if you ever get around to it! I'm SO excited about Nakashima Tetsuya's new movie, Kokuhaku. The dude sure knows how to make a movie.

Ah yes, Mr. Forgetful Onigiri. I imagine I would be much like him if I were an onigiri, too. (???)

Ah, yes he's great, that reminds me I still haven't managed to watch Paco and the Magical Picture Book. Gotta do that while waiting for a Kokuhaku DVD-release ;) I wish he had directed Lalapipo. He wrote the story and I always thought it would have been much better had he been the director, too.

hehe if i were an onigi I'd also be like him but I'd like to be a mentaiko-nigiri XD

Awww Paco <3. So cute and crazy. I should re-watch that one.

I feel the same way regarding Lalapipo. The reviews weren't very good so I went in with low expectations and was actually pleasantly surprised by the intriguing story. Too bad the execution wasn't up to par. I agree that it had the potential to be a much better movie with Nakashima as the director.

Mmmmm mentaiko~ :9
