      The life of the hated pine nuts

      Thankfully, this is the first film I've seen directed by Tetsuya Nakajima. This allows me to fully enjoy this huge surprise.
      As soon as I saw the poster, I thought it looked like the red one in "Angel Emily". And a series of quick cuts at the beginning of the film, interspersed with songs and dances, and plays within the play, also make people full of wonderful fantasy. The picture has always been like a fairy tale, with warm golden tones and flowers blooming in every corner of the...

      Born to be human, sorry

      "I'm really sorry I'm alive."

      This sentence appeared in "The Standard Bearer of the Twentieth Century" written by Osamu Dazai.

      "I'm sorry to be alive."

      This is what Songzi wrote in his diary.

      Many people don't understand what the phrase "I'm sorry, I was born to be" means, and neither do I. At the beginning, I thought this sentence was inexplicable. After seeing those two sentences, I seemed to understand something. After watching the movie "The Life of...

      Born to be human, I'm so sorry

      Last night, I was in a low mood. After reading "The Life of the Disgusted Matsuko", unlike many people who have watched touching or sad, I suddenly felt hopeful and felt very warm in my heart. After learning about her life, Matsuko's nephew said, "My aunt makes people laugh, loves others constantly, encourages others, but she is always scarred and lonely... If God is like aunt, I would rather believe in him." "Everyone who has watched the movie will probably ask, why some people can live so...

      I can't write a short review, just remember it

      While instilling vulgar romantic bubbles such as "every girl is a princess in a fairy tale" and "the greatest happiness is to find a lover to marry him" in childhood To teach women what they can do, no matter how bad a man (as a lover/husband/father/colleague in the workplace) treats women with indifference, deceit, sexual assault, and domestic violence for granted, they are bright but obscure, well-behaved children and girls Idols, coquettish mistresses, shopping girls, masseuses, young...

      What are the highlights and memories of "The Life of the Disgusted Matsuko"?

      I think it was Matsuko’s sermons to young people on the court. She could have walked over as if she had nothing, but at the very beginning she was a teacher. The funny thing is that life is really a starting point and a circle. The end points always come together. When Matsuko preaches to young people like a teacher, the end of her life is also at this moment. I think it was Matsuko’s sermons to young people on the court. She could have walked over as if she had nothing, but at the very...

      Childish, love-hungry, low self-esteem, bad man complex. Matsuko has been flying moths to the flames all his life, just to make up for a smile owed by his childhood father. I stopped crying because I also have pine nuts in my heart. Aren't many of our adult behaviors meant to make up for what we lacked in childhood—love, food, security, for example. How powerless people are when they face themselves. "Born to be human, I'm sorry." PS, the title at the end of the film is about God's great love,...

    Behind the scenes gags

    Nakatani Miki likes the original work very much, and when he was reading a novel, he hoped that he could play the leading role of Matsuko. At the premiere, she got her wish and said that perhaps she had become an actor just to play the role of Matsuko, and she was excited to tears.
    Originally, director Tetsuya Nakashima planned to fully use animation to show the protagonist Matsuko. Later, when I heard that Nakatani wanted to play, he...

    Evaluation action

    "Matsuko no Life" describes the life of Songzi longing for love in a witty and funny way. The story is expressed in various unexpected ways. The rich colors and luxurious special effects are dizzying; the dreamy story with a touch of heartbreak is unforgettable. Tetsuya Nakashima used the fairy tale technique to shoot the movie, so that the film is full of colorful pictures and rich music, and then uses computer effects to create...
