Kimono2000

  • 3.2
This half hour "ambient narrative" was made for the German TV series. Inspired by some readings in a collection of classical Japanese poetry, the film follows a young bride abandoned at a desolate roadside and her dream-like descent into the depths of the forest. There, other aspects of herself come to tempt her.

Sometimes it's best to fall into the images and their movements and not scrabble after meaning or explanation. And to do this without guilt or worry. This film is itself and nothing else.

This is a great feature. Each frame is carefully set up, the actors & make up are excellent; the visuals are wonderful. Alas, for all the technical knowhow, I have no idea what the point of the film is. But it is worth watching just for the technique.

WOW! What a captivating piece. Kimono is filled with beautiful and thought-provoking imagery. The cinematography and editing are amazing and as much a part of the presentation as the characters and the poetic scenery. You have to experience this gem.
