Gohatto, 1999: a japanese movie in a strict medieval military school, where everyone start to become romanticaly obsessed with a new recruit.

But I have a weird fascination for medieval japan history, to the point where I must be the only one who enjoyed the Seven samourai.

The real thing, 2020: japanese movie in modern time . A normal dude become romanticaly obsessed with a girl driving him into weird situation.

I suspect Japan has a tradition of some people being able to entail profound irresistible love. Because thoses 2 movie are totally non realistic for a western eyes.. yet they work. The strangenest is fascinating.

I recently watched

the last of Sheila, 1973: a murder mystery where everyone is bad, and the reveals piles up.

I suspect I liked it more because it is filmed in Antibes, a french city I spend some weeks, in a difficult time, roaming the streets and port at night, like we see them in the movie.
