The Brand New Testament 神様メール

The storytelling is exquisite. Elaborately constructed frames of short bursts of gorgeous, surreal elements pepper the action to ensure that this movie is a very rare delight. Each character in this film is unique and forms pieces of the brilliant display. Benoit Poelvoorde(ブノワ・ポールヴールド)superbly plays the mischievous and despicable portrayal of God. Pil Groyne(ピリ・グロイン), who plays 10-year-old Ea, was memorable as well. David Murgia(ダヴィッド・ミュルジア)is also charming yet hilarious as Jesus Christ.

The Huntsman Winter's War スノーホワイト/氷の王国

It is a fun ride with plenty of action, plenty of humor, and a great cast. Seeing "three" of the most gorgeous actresses appear together, Emily Blunt(エミリー・ブラント), Charlize Theron(シャーリーズ・セロン), Jessica Chastain(ジェシカ・チャステイン) in a movie is surely a feast for the eyes. The dialog is lighthearted, and the story is easy to follow and is enough to keep you engaged, and the love story believable.

"Where is My Home?" with my translation (revised edition) has been published this week. This is a story about a boy named Terry. Everybody called him Terry Treetop because he loved climbing trees. Terry follows a butterfly one day and finds himself lost. Terry wants to go back home. But where is Terry's home? Does the rabbit in the borrow know? Does the beaver in the lodge know? Maybe the fawn's mother knows? Or can Suzanne the squirrel help him? I sincerely hope both children and adults can enjoy this little gem in English and Japanese. Please recharge your souls with the full-color illustrations of energetic Terry and the adorable animals he met.

Money Monster マネーモンスター

This movie had moments of unexpected humor, which was very cleverly done by director, Jodie Foster(ジョディ・フォスター). The movie is well scripted and well acted. Julia Roberts(ジュリア・ロバーツ)as the extraordinary conscious producer calculating how each camera angle is best to follow, while George Clooney(ジョージ・クルーニー)in one of his finest roles as the careless theatrical advice giver of the money program.

"The Snail Who Forgot the Mail" with my translation was published last week. The author has been writing a lot of children's picture books with a unique, refreshing, therapeutic style combining a vivid imagination, humor and flowing rhythm in her stories. This adorable gem was written under the theme of "patience", and its ethical message is appealing to the hearts of children. I sincerely hope both children and adults can enjoy this little gem in English and Japanese.

The Danish Girl リリーのすべて

Such a touching and delicate film especially since it treats difficult subjects of sexuality and the discovery of one's identity in an hostile period. The fact that it is a true story makes the whole movie even more involving. Eddie Redmayne(エディ・レッドメイン) as Lili Elbe and Alicia Vikander(アリシア・ヴィカンダー) as Gerda Wegener, deliver brilliant performances.
