The Good Lie グッド・ライ ~いちばん優しい嘘~

Being based on true events and stories about the lost boys of Sudan, this movie tells a tale of brother-sisterhood, love, friendships, and dedication to family and shows how we as human beings can be so cruel yet be so kind and caring. Reese Witherspoon(リース・ウィザースプーン)was amazing, and the cinematography is so superb that you could freeze frame most shots. Its story, script, acting, directing and cinematography are all first class.

Magic in the Moonlight マジック・イン・ムーンライト

The usual Wody Allen(ウディ・アレン)'s themes are quite prominent but still wrapped in this romantic comedy. Colin Firth(コリン・ファース)is as cool as a cucumber but also likable and funny thanks to his funny dialogue penned by Allen. Emma Stone(エマ・ストーン)is cute and funny as always. The scenery of the south of France is so beautiful.

Time out of Mind ロスト・イン・マンハッタン 人生をもう一度

The movie is about a delusional man who tries to overcome his own mind to be able to regain his daughter, who is about to leave the city. It contains an interesting message and a beautiful story which might make us understand homelessness better. We can learn from the character George's / Richard Gere(リチャード・ギア)'s point of view exposing the hell and mental beating that they have put him through while he was fighting a personal battle hoping to recover from his homeless situation.

Undercover 終りなき戦い

"Undercover" was released on DVD with my translation today. It is an action-packed war film depicting a desperate struggle between the Partisan guerrilla and Nazi in Yugoslavia, where the harshest and fiercest battles took place in Europe during World War II. Produced by Ealing Studios, which had made lots of war propaganda cinema masterpieces. While a variety of resistance movements were seen throughout Yugoslavia under Nazi occupation, one of the Petrovitch brothers escaped to the hills to join the resistance, while the other decided to stay within his village to resist the Nazis, and each of them was scattered in his field of battle. I sincerely hope all of you will enjoy this movie as it is a war cinema masterpiece series to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, and an excellent gem with lots of first-rate staffs and casts.
