Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence by Nagisa Ōshima( Visual )

In a Japanese prison camp on Java in 1942, two British officers, John Lawrence and Jack Celliers, encounter camp commander Yonoi and his sergeant Hara. Things had been going pretty well, until charismatic, rebellious Celliers arrived. Yonoi is a devotee of the samurai ideal; neither he nor Hara can understand the stoic way in which the British prisoners accept their situation of defeat. Lawrence speaks Japanese, and ceaselessly tries to mediate between the prisoners and their overseers, translating both the words and the values of the two races. Celliers' attitude, however, is more comprehensible to Yonoi. He and Celliers arrive at a sort of détente, based on an admiration for the other, but this eventually turns into a contest of wills as the camp's carefully nurtured equilibrium is destroyed

The film also plumbs issues that affect artists -- preoccupations of startling universality -- like community, motivation and controversy, finding one's audience, and just 'getting it right'." -- Back of container
Playing the piano by Ryūichi Sakamoto( Recording )

21 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein Solo-Pianoalbum des herausragenden japanischen Pianisten Ryuichi Sakamoto. Der umtriebige Musiker war Teil des Yellow Magic Orchestra, das als sehr einflussreiche Gruppe in etwa mit Kraftwerk in Europa vergleichbar ist. Sakamoto ist ein Multitalent, das sich im Avantgarde-Pop, in der Neo-Klassik, bei Kunstperformances und im Jazz gleichermassen heimisch fühlt. Ausserdem ist er ein sehr gefragter Filmmusikkomponist (Der letzte Kaiser, Babel u.v.a.). äDer ganze Duktus dieses Piano-Albums ist so sensibel und leise, dass man schnell dazu übergeht, die Musik als Hintergrund zu sehen. Das ist natürlich gemein. Aber der jazzige Ansatz vieler Songs ... den Sakamoto mit seinen Kenntnissen über die meditativen Wiederholungsstrukturen der Minimal Music kombiniert, versetzen den Hörer an eine Hotelbar. Sakamotos Affinität zu Romantikern wie Chopin und Postromantikern und Impressionisten wie Debussy oder Satie verleiten zum sanften Abdriften in Träume über Nebel, Herbst, Wasser oder andere romantische Bilder. Auf seiner Tournee wird sein Pianospiel sicher intim und reizvoll seinä (www.monstersandcritics.de)
