A Scene at the Sea

 

Director: Takeshi Kitano

Japan / 1991 / Col / 101’ / In Japanese with English subtitles

 

An early masterpiece by the acclaimed Japanese Director Takeshi Kitano

 

A deaf-dumb teenager working as a garbage collector happens upon a battered surfboard, which plants in him the dream of becoming a surf champion. His girlfriend, also deaf-dump, lends him her support during the difficult practice sessions and competitions. Though trapped in silence, their expression of love is no less profound.

 

A lyrical masterpiece reminding us that images are often as powerful as words. This is Kitano's gift.
