In our series “Oishii – Japanese delicacies” we screen three feature films, situated in the realms of phantasy. Umoregi (The Buried Forest) gives in its peaceful rhythm lots of space for the spectator´s mind and imagination. Eri Eri Rema Sabakutani? refers in its title to the biblical words spoken in Aramaic (“My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”) and gives a chance for the director Shinji Aoyama to combine two of his keenest interests: films and music. Nobuhiko Obayashi´s Hausu is a cheesy but visually brilliant horror film with a soundtrack by the pop group Godiego. Visually Hausu is inspired by pop art but also by Japan´s own visual tradition, i.e. Katsushika Hokusais drawing from the year 1830 of the ghost of the woman who returns in the form of the lantern. All Oishii -films are spoken in Japanese and subtitles in English. K18, the films have not been classified in Finland.
