Great Reviews 批評家の間で大評判!

ベルリン映画祭の期間中、世界各国20社以上の取材を受け、50件以上のテレビや新聞、ラジオで取り上げられた「選挙」。プレス試写は満席で立ち見が出るほどでした。中には褒め過ぎだよ!という内容もありますが、その批評の一部を紹介します。

"見事なドキュメンタリー"
"ベルリン映画祭の一大センセーション"
"日本人のメンタリティーについての荘厳なる序説"

by Silvia Hallensleben(独「Der Tagesspiegel」紙)

"政治にここまで肉迫した映画は稀だ"
by Bert Rebhandl(独「Die Tageszeitung」紙)

"娯楽性たっぷりの120分間は、ニッポン民主主義の内側をたやすく覗かせてくれる"
by Florian Güßgen(独「Stern」誌)

"撮影の準備期間が無かったことは、この映画にとってポジティブに作用した。カメラは被写体に何の指図を与えることもなく、常に肉迫している"
by Christoph Mayerl(Perlentaucher.de)

"『選挙』を観ると日本の政治のことがよく分かる"

"恐ろしくも楽しめる、稀にみる宝"(Lanacion.com)



While in Berlin, I was interviewed by more than 20 press, and the film was covered by more than 50 news papers, TV segments, radios, and online media. Press screening on Feb 12 was packed and there were people standing. Here are some of the positive reviews by critics.

"A brilliant documentary"
"The sensation of the Berlinale"
"A grandiose introduction to the Japanese mentality"
by Andreas Platthaus, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (The most influential daily news paper in Germany)

"A parody profiling the fascinating personality of its hero"
by Thomas Sotinel, Le Monde, France

"CAMPAIGN is the very best kind of 'Direct Cinema'."
"Despite its tragic protagonist, the Campaign just may be the funniest film in the Forum."
by Silvia Hallensleben, Der Tagesspiege

"Rarely has a film achieved such an intimate view of the political process."
by Bert Rebhandl, Die Tageszeitung

"CAMPAIGN, in 120 entertaining minutes, give us an effortless inside look at 'J-Democracy' (Japanese Democracy)."
by Florian Güßgen, Stern Magazine

"The lack of preparation was a blessing in disguise for this film. The camera is relentlessly close to its subject--nothing is directed."
by Christoph Mayerl, Perlentaucher.de

"CAMPAIGN is a crash course on Japanese politics."
by Christian Westheide, Festival Blog Berlinale 2007

"Soda delivers a ingenious and intense portrait--not only of Japan's election campaign process, but of its culture and society as well.
by Fabio Fusco, Cinema Zone, Italy


"One of those rare treasures that is both frightening and funny at the same time."
