THE MAKIOKA SISTERS 細雪
1983, Kon Ichikawa
There was one person, in my heart. I didn’t know where she was. She saved me, but I couldn’t find her. So I imagined. What would she be doing? Maybe she’s on a picnic too. She’s probably fitting in and playing with the other kids. Does she have a crush on someone? But she probably doesn’t like him too much. Perhaps, she might even remember me.
THE ONE AND ONLY (2022)
See these numbers? It shows you who lives in each household. Two means an adult female. Three means a kid. And the number one means an adult male. That was the number he avoided, the houses where men live. He deliberately broke into houses where only women or kids live. But what does that have to do with restaurants that deliver? It has to be someone with a job that allows him to have an idea of who lives in each household.
Through the Darkness (2022) - E01: Red Cap Incident
The sun rises and falls every month. So it feels like I’m living a really long day where time passes by slowly. It has been two years already, but I’m yet to find out what exactly the lunar water is. The higher-ups are making a big fuss and urging us to test it on human bodies. Figures. If this succeeds, it could save humanity.
THE SILENT SEA 고요의 바다
Dir. Choi Hang Yong┃2021
Kim Nam Gil as Song Ha Young
Through the Darkness (2022)
It’s not that Ha Young is unable to feel anything. He can feel them way too deeply. I’m not sure if you’ll understand him. But he can look deeply into people’s inner side. He sees a gap between his feelings and other people’s reaction. He must have realised that he is different from the others. Seeing the dead body that day, triggered his thought in his head. So he’s trying to hide his emotions.
