'“Stray Dog” and “Lost in Transition”\r'

'The cinema â€Å" assert Dog” is the classical masterpiece say by Akira Kurosawa. It is around a young carnivore homicide detective, vie by Toshiro Mifune, who had a stolen Colt pistol. It is humorous how a homicide detective had lost his weapon due to pickpocketing. The Colt pistol stolen from the main instance was apply in a serial publication of murders, which eventually troubled him. Due to this, Murukami started to die hard the guy who stole his weapon and used it for murder.\r\nMurukami who was in search was helped by Sato, played by Takashi Shimura, when the first victim was found. Sato was an previous(a) guy, that he was definitely clever. The photographic film or the manhunt occurs in post contend capital of lacquer, with a partially bombed atmosphere or scenery. Furthermore, the search and the feat occur bandage a brutal and horrid heatwave is present.\r\nThe heatwave someways shows or reflects the support conditions of post war Tokyo, or lacquer as a whole (Ishikawa and Tyler, 1998). japan by and by the public fight II was devastated wherein problems in conversation and transportation ar at large. Furthermore, living conditions are not that size open. There was a severe shortage in the add on of food, and a very high penury for it, and this lasted not just for months but for stratums.\r\nâ€Å" obscure Dog”, was filmed in the year 1949 which somehow relates to the time where the story itself took place. Furthermore, the background or atmosphere in 1949 was clear in the film as justify by the presence of a plentifulness of scenes showing cities or regions which requires rebuilding. The mark or indication of bombings was present in the cathode-ray oscilloscope of the picture show, just like Japan after the bombings in 1945.\r\nPoverty and desolation are some of the things which can be picture out of the movie and in a way, gives the movie watchers a little contact of tender consciousness. Aside from J apan organism withered by the bombings, the gravelly or horrible societal conditions also depreciates or weakens the soul and morals of a man. This happened to Yasu, the cause of death or antagonist in the movie, who was once a good person.\r\nHe shifted to a life of crime after experiencing the harsh effects of poverty and poor conditions of living. Somehow, it w finishethorn tell the story of some individuals spell towards a life of crime and social evil to continue living in the post war Japan. As the gloss somehow suggest, â€Å"stray dogs” which could turn by and by on as rabid dogs, could be representations of a man or of a desolate individual who goes or turns to doing social crimes.\r\nSocial awareness on Japan also increases as the movie ventures into the grisly alleys and criminal or murder elements in the story. Generally, â€Å" purge Dog” is a good movie, especially to those who love murder or crime-solving movies and even to those socially or mea grely socially aware individuals. It is like course finished history of Japan, without world in reality there. The sense of hearing are entertained, at the aforementi sensationd(prenominal) time taught good lessons.\r\nThe second movie entitled â€Å" helpless in interpretation” is fundamentally a comedy-drama film which hit the box office hits in 2003. It is or so an American action movie star, named loading dock Harris, who was experiencing certain problems in his career and basically is losing it. Bob Harris, played by accounting Muray, went to Tokyo, Japan in order to frighten off a film, more specifically a commercial on Suntory whisky wherein he met Charlotte, played by Scarlett Johansson. Bob and Charlotte went with each other, and experienced or shared an unconsummated romance.\r\nThough at some points, they were a little bit uncertain about the directions that they want to recognise or in their lives or how far they want to take their relationship. Life in Japan by 2003 is far different than that of the post-war Japan. Also, life in Japan is different as that of what Westerners experience. As such, the two characters had a feeling of being alienated as they both(prenominal) toured or explored the life in Tokyo, more specifically Japan’s culture. Since they were both Westerners and that they are in a different country, they both felt loneliness and wanted to be with each other.\r\nThe second movie takes its audience to the new and modern Japanese metropolisscape, far beyond the scenery in the movie Stray Dog. After World War II, almost all the regions in Tokyo ware devastated and destroyed. By 2003, the city had come up from the ashes and had grown into a strong city with a lot of beautiful scenery.\r\nThe scenes or views of the new Tokyo after the war can be observed by the audience not just in the movie alone, but even in the posters, teasers or in the trailer of the movie. stintingally and socially, the movie tours its vie wers to the new Japan after the devastating war and shows through the scenery, actions or movements and characters how it had recovered. The post war economic success was possible and helped Japan to create itself and be the Japan that we know of it directly (Neary, 1995).\r\nJust like the Stray Dog, Lost in description which was directed by Sofia Coppola, is very much entertaining. Lost in adaptation was at first funny, but as the story goes on, audiences experience a unique drama. The ending of Lost in Translation was more mind boggling or intriguing as compared to the ending of the Stray Dog. The audiences in Lost in Translation are left thinking or imagining what the ending could have been. Both movies were able to show the old and new Japan, and if it was watched one after the other, the audience would be greatly aware of the huge transformation that Japan took or went to, before and after the war.\r\n kit and boodle Cited\r\nâ€Å"Japanese History: Postwar”.  199 6.  (celestial latitude 18, 2002):  japan-guide.com. declination 18, 2007. <http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e2124.html>.\r\nâ€Å"Lost in Translation”.  2003.  (December 18, 2007):  Focus Features.
