TRAILERS: THE TALE OF THE BAMBOO CUTTER AND THE MOLE SONG


Two Japanese films, and two Japanese trailers, so don't ask me what's going on in either of them. The above trailer for Takahata Isao's The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter is a glorious example of how so much can be communicated in promotional material with so little fuss. The below trailer for Miike Takashi's The Mole Song: Undercover Agent Reiji is quite the opposite. Both have their charms, I think, and uniquely Japanese ones too.
