O-oku! Yes, so when I sat down to watch this, I was completely expecting Japanese-style cinematography (as you guys mentioned: slow-paced, and lots of silent, pretty scenes), so I was pleasantly surprised that I wasn't bored at all during this movie. I have to say, though, I think was a little too fast-paced. Pretty much every character, except for Yunoshin, was underdeveloped, which was a shame. I wish this could've been a drama, instead of a movie!

I was also a bit taken aback by Dear Snow at the end XD I got so wrapped up into the movie that I completely forgot about that song, so when it started playing I was like, "...Dear Snow? Oh yeah, this song was made for the movie!" It felt soooo out of place. I guess you could say it was too "modern-sounding" for the movie. Also, the movie wasn't really set during the winter (I think there was, like, ONE winter scene?) nor did it have a cold, wintery feel to it; it was more spring-like, in my opinion.

All in all, I really liked it :D It's not too emotionally-taxing and had a really "light" feel to it, which was nice. I did feel like the ending was too perfect, though. Although I wanted Yunoshin to have closure with O-Nobu, I think he should've died at the end... I don't know, they could've at least made it dramatic and have the Shogun protest/change that rule saying that whomever takes the virginity of the Shogun has to die; it seems like she went against the other traditions of O-oku, so why not this one?

Okay, I'll stop rambling now, haha.

Love it, love it, love it! It's so pretty! But, then, I have a thing for dance PV's. :) I'm really taken with the dance shots in the white room, with the flashing and lichting changes, but also, there's some really neat camera work going on. Some of the angles are really cool, including the one where they shot through the lid of the waterbottle.

And, oh, I didn't say, I'm talking about Change The World... whoops :P
