      comedy within tragedy

      It's actually a sad story, but it's played out in a comedy way. After reading it, I thought of "The Life of Abandoned Matsuko", the heroine and Matsuko are quite similar. I can only say that the casting of this film is fantastic, each character is very distinct and unique. You can remember them at a glance. The simplicity and perseverance of the heroine, the cute and silly feeling of the hero, and the joyful and dynamic death. I thought it would be very inconsistent for foreigners to play...

      Hungary Hungary

      There must be echoes of this movie. I just wanted to see it at the European Film Festival last year. It didn't turn away because of the Japanese elements. Mainly I like the color and style of it too much. A little bit of beauty, not too Wes Anderson, not too Michelle Gondry. Gang Rui regards dreams as horses more, and Director Wei is very ironic and philosophical. Well, this is just silly fun.
      The heroine is a bit like queen s. After reading half of it, she realized that there is a...

      Serious spoilers and some tiny bits and pieces

      Central and Eastern European Little Fresh "Fox Fairy Lisa Shashashashasha"

      Also known as "After Reading a Japanese Romance Novel"

      aka "A Million Ways to Die"

      After the lengthy opening ceremony, finally ushered in the screening of the film. This type of film is different from the types of films I have seen before. The most direct feeling is that it reminds me of a French film "Amelie", although the color of the whole film does not see the rich colors of French films,...

      If it's not true love, it will die fast

      This is a Hungarian film, and European films are always more or less neurotic. This one is more or less, plus most of the Japanese elements, small and fresh music, and the favorite gorgeous pictures of literary and young people.
      Lisa, a 30-year-old innocent female nurse, reads Qiong Yao's love novels, takes care of a paralyzed old woman all the year round, and falls in love with the imaginary Japanese singer Asuka-kun.

      Asuka-kun is an existence in the imagination of the...

      About the oriental fox demon culture in the movie

            I want to focus on the fox fairy, everyone focuses on love, but I think the highlight of this movie is not love, but the legendary fox fairy appeared in Hungary. . . .
             In the movie, the one who really controls the rhythm of the audience is the green Japanese man. Almost all events happened by his will. In fact, I don't know what kind of ghost it is; Lisa thinks she is a fox demon, Lisa's yearning for love is also influenced by the story of the fox fairy in the Japanese...

      The director is like a combination of Michelle Gondry and Wes Anderson, who uses a strong Japanese culture to package a fairy tale in which true love conquers all. It has all kinds of whimsical ideas and a sense of form. Very enough, this sense of formality also makes the plot look a bit monotonous most of the time, and the dark story is a bit bizarre. In the end, it is reasonable and absolutely romantic. For example, in the end, the uncle is really a man who is chasing love with his life....

      The heterochromatic pure love story of Eastern Europe, Hungary and Japanese fox fairy, the style is not as good as "Angel Amelie", and the emotion is far worse than "Pine Nuts", which is a nerve and interesting attempt, but that's...

    Evaluation action

    The film is narrated by a middle-aged uncle. The rhythm is brisk, the plot is full of fantasy, and the shapes and words and deeds of the characters are all bizarre and grotesque, suffusing the taste of black humor. What's more important is its pictures, with exquisite and retro interior sets, bright and beautiful outdoor landscapes, as well as food, comics, still lifes, etc., magnificent and prosperous. Although it was finally...
