Lily Chou-Chou No Subete (2001)
(aka "Riri Shushu no subete", "All About Lily Chou-Chou")
directed by Shunji Iwai
"What a trip! Style
is typical Iwai, but the story is nothing like his previous works.
Some scenes are quite hard to watch, something I didn't expect.
Very dark and sad film start to finish.
Extremely powerful and highly stylized images and the music is
just amazing. What
impressed me the most is how the film appears to be cut with almost
mathematical efficiency, which is quite impressive for a film that runs
almost two and a half hour. There's
no filler anywhere, every shot has meaning is important to the story.
Scenes begin and end abruptly, not wasting time on form.

This DVD looks stellar as expected from a Norman's Nose release. It plays perfectly in weave mode on the htpc so the DVD was either shot on 24fps video or transferred from the (very clean!) film print instead of the original dv, I’m not sure. Picture is very sharp and crisp and detailed, with bold colors and perfect 0 ire black level and amazing shadow detail. Zero edge enhancement. The Dolby Digital 5.1 sounds excellent with clear dialogue, and no distortion or clipping anywhere. Only problem is a/v sync during a 15-minute period later in the film, very obvious during some of the scenes where live music is performed. Jeroen
