“My Man” (Japanese: 私の男 , watashi no Otoko), won the “Golden George Prize” for best film.
As it happens, I watched the movie last week (before the announcement 😉 ) .
The acting, Nikaido Fumi, Asano Tadanobu and Kawai Aoba were great. Was mostly impressed with Kawai Aoba. A relatively small part in the film, but strong impact. Nikaido Fumi played her part very well, childish in parts, seductive in others.
The Not So Good:
Left the cinema feeling disappointed, last part of the film ended too fast and not clear. While spending a lot of time in Hokkaido, The Nature and murder (?) in the snow, Tokyo life were quite short. Could be that the movie follows the book, but it did not feel right.
1. Going to read the book
2. Although I found Kawai Aoba to be very interesting as an actress , her blog is quite boring
