Review

Barbara Hammer said of this picture, This was the hardest film I ever made". Perhaps this film may appear to Koreans the best. For Ogawa is, even more so than Japan, acknowledged as one of the living giants of the film in Korea. This feature was filmed over the course of 30 years, with cooperation from Ogawa Sinsuke and the Ogawa Productions. The film contains astonishing amount of rare footages, collected for 2 years during the initial research. People around Ogawa Sinsuke reveal different memories and perspectives about the man. The interviews with his family, directors Hara Gazuo and Oshima Nagisa, and the former members of the Ogawa production-enable us to unravel the mysteries surrounding the man, and to gain a new perspective about the former filmmaker. The inner struggles we had never imagined, the charisma, self-righteousness, and eccentricity of his personality are all revealed, building up to a unique documentary. It is a film offering a new perspective on the late film legend and a chronicle of the Ogawa productions. A monument in documentary history.
