Sunday December 19, 2010 I saw Sunday



http://isawsunday.blogspot.com/

This week brought the long awaited snow to the Santa Fe area. So before me I saw the winter wonderland created by fresh snow, but in my mind's eye, I kept seeing the images from the Japanese film, Dolls. I think it is the most beautiful film I have ever seen and possibility the most beautiful film ever made.

The stills from the film kept playing in my head. This is a film made in 2002. I first saw it soon after. The director and writer was Takeshi Kitano.

Within the film are three stories of undying love. Each story is lovely. And each frame of the film, could be a painting. It is a poetic and introspective movie. Bear, the symbol of introspection, said, it is perfect for this time of year.

  1. Thanks for joining in. I often think of December as the time to pull inside and ruminate of things left unresolved, blended with dreams in the making. Am still trying to find the movie you write about. Keep fingers crossed,
