Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence evaluation action

"Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence" is a story about a clash of cultures. This film, which is based on same-sex love, has a good reputation among the audience, and people have different interpretations of the film, but it is undeniable that this is also a story about encounters - people and people, spirit and flesh   .
In the film, Nagisa Oshima's questioning and criticism of Japan's political and social environment reached a climax. He nakedly exposed the brutality of militarism, the narrow-mindedness of nationalism and the cowardly side of samurai spirit, and high-profilely denied and reflected on Japan's post-war thought , Acura fraternity, justice and freedom   .
When Nagisa Oshima adapted Lawrence Post's novel, he added his understanding of the Japanese spiritual world and embraced multiple positions. When the motherland is on the evil side, such a background is burdened on the body of the individual. As an individual, what kind of view of right and wrong should a person have. Combining the specific identities and special feelings of the characters, everyone in the film is so hesitant. This is the test of human nature in war.   .
The film analyzes and criticizes the Japanese soldier's spirit typified by Yonoi and Sergeant Yuan, and adds homosexuality to strengthen the conflict and psychological performance. Nagisa Oshima doesn't describe any one character absolutely. The performances of Kitano Takeshi and Ryuichi Sakamoto, who first appeared on the screen, are excellent, but Jack, played by Lawrence and David Bowie, is relatively simple and flat   .

    The narrative structure organized by cultural conflict is difficult to escape the flaw of caring for one thing and the other, so the biggest point of view naturally becomes two basic love performances pretending to be intimidating. Movies are not as simple as concept + visual + soundtrack.

Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence quotes

  • Maj. Jack Celliers: What is wrong with them, Lawrence?

    Col. John Lawrence: I don't know. They were a nation of anxious people. And they could do nothing individually. So they went mad, en masse. God I wish they'd stop hitting me. I don't want to hate any individual Japanese.

  • Maj. Jack Celliers: What's your Christian name, by the way, Lawrence?

    Col. John Lawrence: John.

    Maj. Jack Celliers: John. John Lawrence. Good night, John Lawrence.
