ABOUT GUELYLAND

"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

OKURIBITU (DEPARTURES)


Like salmons, our lives are a journey to death. Actually like any living being. And death has different meanings for us, depending on our personal beliefs. But is too often a sad dark helpless thing. Okuribitu (Yojiro Takita, 2008) lights a little candle about the subject.
Daigo (Masahiro Motoki) is a cello player that has a sudden change in his carrier. His music carrier die. And the next new one has to do with death and the mourning of it. Is not an easy one. Almost a taboo. Many won't understand it (at the beginning not even himself) including his, other, perfect wife, just because the subject is not close or experienced. But someone has to do it. In fact, someone has always been doing it. We just don't think much about it.
Life, death, eating, love, stones and fishes sounds almost like a morbid combination. But, if we follow Daigo's journey through this beautiful movie (and I don't say good I say beautiful) we gonna have an almost mystic experience.

la muerte no es el enemigo... sólo un paso más. Si nos ocuparamos de vivir la vida plenamente no le tendríamos tanto miedo
