The film ” Lonely cow weeps at dawn “, filmed in 2003, a little-known Japanese director Daizuke Gotohom is sufficiently original, to put it mildly , a representative of the “pink series ” Japanese cinema . According to Freud , “The Lonely cow weeps at dawn ” – a film in which the brightest way manifested deviant incest zoofilicheskaya – sublimation for love in a picture of the main characters looks strange places , sometimes even funny , but mostly distorted , because the essence of painting as such escapes from the viewer , but with great pleasure showing extremely unusual for the average mind and okoloeroticheskie erotic scenes shot operator Masahide Ioka very, very effectively , by the way ( they are mainly painting and draws ) .
As romance ” Lonely cow weeps at dawn ” is rather weak , as the drama is not better , because sympathize or associate themselves with such unusual characters is extremely difficult , but its function to surprise and shock the viewer movie performs brilliantly .
Acting in the film deserves attention , if not , then at least the interest , for the courage Ryoko Asagi ( Noriko ) and Horio Nakamura ( Shunichi ) clearly does not hold and executed them very entertaining characters turned out .
Soundtrack by composer Kazumi Both in the film and minimalistic directed primarily at creating an unusual atmosphere in it .
Particularly recommend this film to view I would not because of its specificity wild , but if you are looking for something shocking , perverse and does not fit into the general framework , the ” lonely cow weeps at dawn ,” you should definitely please .
