A Noh dramatization of the suicides of Lt. Shinji Takeyama and his wife Reiko. After participating in a failed 1936 coup and being ordered to execute his friends, he bids his wife an intimate farewell and commits harakiri.
Documentary that chronicles how Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now (1979) was plagued by extraordinary script, shooting, budget, and casting problems--nearly destroying the life and career of the celebrated director.
Good enough to make you wish it were longer, while being smart enough to stop before it wears out its welcome this melding of Pooh and Viet Nam is a short treat.
Almost impossible to find this film is worth searching out if you like film conventions turned on their heads. This is a clever parody makes you wish that you had been both clever and talented enough to think of it.
You will forgive the lack of details but the film being so short I'd rather not ruin any of the bits for you.
8 out of 10. See it if you can.
