Projects? Phhht!

In spite of my last CTM project (Computing Techniques & Modelling), I watched the Japanese live-action film “Ping Pong” yesterday and it is very good. On the surface it is about a high-school table-tennis club, but in reality it is more about the friendship of two unequal members of the club. The actual table-tennis is good (and looks real) but the focus is not on the matches but on the players, which works really well (although I wanted Mr. Tsukimoto to win in the end). The main-characters are believable and well-acted, which cannot be said for some of the supporting cast; but it never drags down the movie. The soundtrack consists of ambient-techno (most of which is by “Supercar”) which works surprisingly well. The R3-release unfortunately is not anamorphic but otherwise looks flawless w/ a high bit-rate and good english subs…
