Technicolor days





One of my favourite things to do whilst hibernating is watching old films, especially technicolor ones. This beauty is one of my faves, "Equinox Flower" by Yasujiro Ozu from 1958. New films never look this good.

  2. så sant. så sant. Fast ibland så försöker de återskapa känslan nuförtiden, men det är svårt.

  3. i haven´t seen the film, but it really looks nice. every frame like an art piece.

    Making a "good looking" film would need a lot of time, i guess. now days, everything has to be done so fast. no time to see and feel things..

  5. Oh, I love Ozu. All his films make me cry and feel nostalgic and so special to be Japanese. :-)

  7. i only know the B&W films by Ozu. For me this is the image perfection! you can stop the movie at any time, the image on the screen will be beautiful.

  9. Oh, of course, it's the technicolor feel that made "Mad Men" look so good. The reds....
