2 October 1999 | cread
a visual delight
Kitchen, a rather obscure-looking Japanese/Hong-Kong film, was a movie I had previously heard little about. However, I was surprised by the beauty of the filming and the quality of the acting. The plot was nothing too original - a boy-meets-girl tale given interest by the fact that they have character and speak a language I don't understand - but the technique was in places stunning - the opening sequence, for instance, a close up of rain beating down on a puddle when slowly a human face emerges - Aggie, as she is called. Not perhaps what many 'foreign' film fans may be looking for, but this undeniably has an exquisite quality that I have not encountered this side of Casablanca. If you are lucky enough to be able to watch this, then do so.
