Review

Creator of Astro Boy TEZKA Osamu’s son TEZKA Macoto turned his father’s erotic manga series that was published in a manga magazine in the 1970s into a live-action film. Mikura Yosuke is popular novelist, but he has been struggling with writer’s block for a while. One day, Yosuke meets drunk Barbara and brings her home. However, she owns great talent and provides fresh artistic inspiration to him. This film twists the relationship between the artist and the muse. Barbara’s mother is somewhat a bizarre version of Mnemosyne, mother of the nine Muses in Greek mythology. Therefore, Barbara is not a muse who serves artists unilaterally. Fantasy and psychedelic images enhance the mystic nature of Barbara. [MOON Seok]
