The Rise Of Japanese Cinema

13 November, 2012 (17:24) | General | By: admin

Japanese cinema has always been a highlight for visitors from the west. A huge number of brands associated with the anime and manga, known throughout the world. Japanese script known to many viewers for a remake of the originals that are punched in the U.S.. Unfortunately the original Japanese films not shown in theaters, but we should admit that Japanese cinema comes to leadership. One of the most popular films of recent years – call Hideo Nakata, recognized the worst film in the history of Japanese cinema. Many fans have the original and in other countries.

Those who have not seen the original, in any case already appreciated the American remake of Gore Verbinski, who is to say, also came out very well. A remake of Wake begun on the massive use of the original Japanese films and ideas. In 2004, just two to remake Japanese films were kinohitami in the U.S.. This " Shall We Dance "starring Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez, as well as the next horror film" The Curse ". From 2004 to today in the U.S. Dozens of remakes, especially popular horror movies such as "One Missed Call" "Phone 2", "premonition", etc. But Japan is famous not only horror and mystical thriller.

In Japan, films are about the samurai, fantasy, historical films. Now their number is not very large, this is due to inaction directors spend a lot of money, but because these genres require large budgets. Now "on horseback" drama, melodrama and comedy. Their success is due to the advent of amateurs in other countries, thanks to the spread of the Internet. Many companies buy movies for rental (unfortunately Russia this trend is not observed). Also in Japan there are new young talented directors today, is not shy to show their views on cinema. Movies about love making big fees in Japan. In the West, these films do not enjoy the success for various reasons. In Japanese melodramas often lack realism, which expresses the absence of sex scenes or sometimes even banal kisses. Even true fans of Japanese cinema, often boring to look at the excessive innocence films. Another din main drawback – the lack of original plot moves. Often, just one movie an exact copy of another. Still in great demand in Japan and among fans in other countries use the Japanese series, the so-called drama. The most popular theme – again, love. About 80% of all dramas in some way connected with love theme. Often there is any admixture of comedy or drama. One of the most popular sub-genres – it is a sport. Many of the drama is used as a background basketball, football, baseball … even hockey. One of the most popular in the world and successful at home drama "One liter of tears." Drama based on the diaries of a girl suffering from terminal illness, which she wrote throughout her short life. Unfortunately, many challenges Japanese films of different genres can not see on television, not in theaters. The only exception – Takeshi Kitano films, the only popular now director of the Land of the Rising Sun. From Japan are waiting for for her classic, stereotypical horror movies or samurai fighters. I very much hope that this trend will soon disappear and people will be able to enjoy all the beauty of the colorful Japanese cinema.
