MOGURA NO UTA FULL MOVIE ENG SUB

It’s really not a bad soundtrack, it’s just another one of those completely inconspicuous selections of music which are there simply because it’s expected for a film to have at least some music in it. Things get a bit messy when Todoroki’s daughter falls for Reiji, but gets kidnapped under his watch. As opposed to some of Miike’s older films, there aren’t any sequences that are unnecessarily dragged out or slow down for no apparent reason. The ones behind the kidnapping are the Dragon Skulls, a Chinese crime syndicate that is looking to settle their conflict with the Todoroki gang once and for all. By that time it should be clear for the audience that there’s little else to do but put yourself in Miike’s hands and let yourself be swept away by his follies. It’s just one steaming train of craziness that hurtles itself forward from start to finish. Tsubasa Honda and Arata Furuta are the new names that stand out the most.

As for the cast, many familiar faces return for Hong Kong Capriccio. It’s the start of a film that seems to go wherever it wants to go, always a clear sign that you’re about to watch one of Miike’s better films. Not that it matters a whole lot, this is one of those trademark wacky Miike films, which don’t particularly answer to common logic. Agent Reiji goes deeper underground and becomes the personal bodyguard of Todoroki, the big chief of the Sukiyakai gang.

Visually there is a lot to admire moguar. While it doesn’t let the rest of the film down, I do feel that Miike neglects the chance to add another layer of comedy to the film.

They threaten to sell Todoroki’s daughter off at some auction if he doesn’t step down, but Todoroki isn’t willing to budge and sends Reiji to the auction to solve his problem. They give their all, even and especially in the scenes where they have to do some extremely silly stuff. It’s more of the same of course, just minutes of that same fun, entertaining and surprising comedy that makes Miike films such unique experiences.

Add some superb animated scenes and some grand settings and you get a true visual spectacle.

By that time it should be clear for the audience that there’s little else to do but put yourself in Miike’s hands and let yourself be swept away by his follies.

There’s enough material left for a third film, so fingers crossed that Miike turns this into a full-on trilogy. Hong Mpvie Capriccio takes off where the first film left off.

Ut the start of a film that seems to go wherever it wants to go, always a clear sign that you’re about to watch one of Miike’s better films.

Uta no Onii-san – 01

The soundtrack is not up to par with the visuals, but that was to be expected. Not that it matters a whole lot, this is one of those trademark wacky Miike films, which don’t particularly answer to common logic. Hong Kong Capriccio is a constant onslaught of weird, kooky and nonsensical moments that are rendered with such fun and enthusiasm that it’s almost impossible not to get caught up in the vibe of the film, then again it’s not going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

But good things come to those who wait and not too surprisingly, Mpgura Kong Capriccio didn’t disappoint in the slightest. There’s enough variation, both in style, comedy and setting to prevent this film from ever becoming boring, but you do have to be down with Miike’s particular sense of absurdity to enjoy it.

It’s really not a bad soundtrack, it’s just another one of those completely ufll selections of music which are there simply because it’s expected for a film to have at least some music in it. If its his more serious, more down-to-earth stuff you’re after, better turn around because you’re really not in the right place here.

Getting your hands on Hong Kong Capriccio may still be a challenge, but if you’re into Miike’s work it’s well worth the hassle.

Sure enough, some of the CG is still a little shoddy like the tigerbut at least it’s always functional and it always adds something extra to the film. Cinematography, lighting and color work are all top notch though, painting the entire film in a warm and rich glow. It’s extremely rare zub see a bonkers film like this get such a big budget and Miike really makes the most of it.

The Mole Song: Hong Kong Capriccio [Mogura No Uta: Hong Kong Kyoso-Kyoku] – reviews –

Apart from a pretty hilarious theme song, the music jta fills some quiet gaps and supports whatever is happening on screen. As for the cast, many familiar faces return for Hong Kong Capriccio. For a film like this you need a cast of actors who dare to make fun of themselves and that’s exactly what they are doing here.
