Review

Goma is a famous Japanese didgeridoo player. As his memory functions are damaged in a car accident, he does not recognize his family or close friends nor remember how to ride a subway. Surprisingly, though, Goma’s body remembers how to play didgeridoo, so he begins playing it little by little. The images of Goma practicing hard with his band overlap with his past. Then, his and his wife’s diaries are shown on the screen. This documentary begins with images where a young, passionate musician enjoys his music and feels happiness. Then, Goma’s diary showing his inner side is used to describe the recent crisis, where he almost lost everything: from his family to friends, and to music. The music that his band plays encourages the audience to join Goma’s rehabilitating effort and struggle to take out what is inside of him. With his band’s percussion rhythm in the background, Goma’s performance develops in a shamanistic way as if a shaman made audience possessed. By keeping listening to that music, one may reach a dreamlike realm to be guided to another world and become like Goma in the stage of self-oblivion. A peculiar process of finding one’s true self by self-oblivion . Goma is trying to figure out his identity unconsciously while playing the music.
