24. Akiresu to kame [Achilles and the Tortoise]

Comedy* [why on Earth they put it comedy genre? In my opinion it's drama with some comedy moments]
Country: Japan
Directed/written by Takeshi Kitano [who played also main role]

It's a story about unsuccessful painter called Machisu.
All his life Machisu with support of his wife tries to paint a masterpiece, regardless of all discouragement from people around him.

'Achilles and the Tortoise' is one of those Japanese movies that asks us important questions but doesn't give answers.

Machisu lacks in talent but he is full of passion for painting. Should he give up? No.
But when his attempts to paint 'hurts' people around?
When his passion makes a mad person from him?
Should he give up?

Movie asks more question; it's think-provoking.
Maybe Machisu's artworks are true art but critics who discourage him don't see it?

Who shaped our taste of art? Culture? Critics and art galleries?

'Achilles and Tortoise' shows a tragedy of one man but Takeshi Kitano knows that adding few funny moments can make a tragic story 'easier' to watch.

But this doesn't make from Kitano's movie part of Hollywood blockbusters or stupid comedies; for me it was a bit hard to watch it till end and I was confused after movie -but with time I understood it and what else can I add
I really recommend it!
