(jp) wrote: A coming-of-age story? Well, it's a bizarre one, and I would definitely consider it as one. A wimpy kid, Tadashi, gets chosen as Kirin Rider at a village festival. As such he is defender of peace or something like that from evil forces. Meanwhile, a Yokai (or demon/spiritual creature of some supernatural quality) goes evil and starts making machines out of other Yokai thus threatening some spiritual balance. Believing his grandfather is in trouble, he runs to his rescue only to find himself in the spirit world (I think - again, this is a really weird movie). Tadashi is basically tricked, but it turns out it was a test of heroic will to see if he would overcome his fears to save a loved one - which he passes. So he agrees to help a group of Yokai he runs into (A river princess, a kappa, some red guy, and a cat-like puppet thing). As a film, it isn't surprising that Miike would make something like this - seeing he doesn't stay to a particular style - he does however stick to a certain bizarre-likeliness. It feels like a kids movie, but it has a certain Miike creepiness that makes it a little more mature - though it includes very cartoon-like happenings, such as the flattening of the kappa after being crushed by a gigantic boulder and later appears perfectly unharmed (like something out of Looney Tunes). Not to mention the CG effects are very cartoon-like and move much quicker and more fluidly than reality would. Is it a great Miike film? No. But it is an entertaining and weird film that has a great style to it. Not to mention it is much better than the majority of Miike's near 80 feature films. It's worth checking out, at least for an interesting experience. If anything, this film is interesting.

(nl) wrote: Family power struggles (and much squabbling) are front and center in this tale of a frontier ranch frightened by a rogue panther. Robert Mitchum is the domineering middle son but Beulah Bondi dominates the cast as the witchy matriarch. A bit stagey but some great winter snowscapes.
