Emotions dansantes (FICTION) (French Edition)
Novel situations and solutions. The adage of a picture being worth a thousand words hit home to me in this particular context. Often I prefer the book to the film. I asked myself how I would have treated the stories as a writer to achieve the quality of emotion of the films. I saw a film titled "Twilight Samurai". One of the most real, beautiful, moving and tense films I have ever seen.
A human tale of Seibei, a low ranking samurai and a poor widower caring for his old mother and two young daughters and the butt of office jokes behind his back. His reacquaintance with Tomoe, a childhood friend who also befriends his children, offers opportunity for a new life but he soon realises he is too poor to offer marriage to her.

Some of the characters were old enough to fight, but many are soldiers who have never gone to war. Another focus' on the chief groom in a castle who has fallen out of shape and training, and has to try to complete an important escort mission.
I found the focus on men, men and more men a little off putting, though there are some great wife and daughter characters throughout, but though it bordered on manpain a couple of times, it never slid over.
The author also tended to over describe things about the period that I already knew, which I felt broke the flow of the stories a bit, and swordplay solved more problems than it probably actually did in the period, but the writing was elegant, and the characters very vivid and sympathetic. I liked the book. I cried by reading every of them, but I was always pleased.

Some very accessible little Easterns. The writing style strikes me as nearer midth than midth century, with occasional digressions on history, but in all liklihood translation has done the stories' density no favours.
Worth the reading, for sure. I remember it at least. It was perhaps a bit too realistic and therefore a little bit boring but someone who's really into samurai might enjoy it more. It teaches you about the class system at least.
