Blood and Bones Review

Posted by On July - 15 - 2010
Hey all! Sorry I didn’t get anything posted up last week, but I’ll make up for that with a couple of reviews between today and hopefully tomorrow! First up, a confrontational piece of human drama in the case of Yoichi Sai’s Blood and Bones! Give it a read! It’s a difficult film, but very interesting.

The Plot: Blood and Bones is the story of Shunpei Kim (Takeshi Kitano), a Korean immigrant in Japan who makes his way into the country before the second world war and quickly adapts to the life necessary for him to survive. A man of brutal violence and intimidation, he controls his family with an iron fist and quickly becomes a success as he turns his rented home into a fish paste roll factory. While he climbs up the ladder in terms of financial success, we watch as he beats and tortures his family and everyone around him over six decades. Narrated by his youngest son, Blood and Bones is a massive story that is shown strictly from the vantage point of this small community of Korean immigrants. We see their plight and their struggle as they are forced to deal with Shunpei and his madness.
