Encyclopedia > Yoshimitsu Morita

Yoshimitsu Morita (1950-present) is a Japanese film director. Self-taught, he made his debut in 1981. In 1983 he won acclaim for his movie Kazoku Gēmu (The Family Game), which was voted the best film of the year by Japanese critics. This black comedy dealt with then-recent changes in the structure of Japanese home life.

FILM: MORITA'S 'SOREKARA' - New York Times (661 words)
WATCHING Yoshimitsu Morita's ''Sorekara'' (''And Then'') is like tuning in to the dream of a stranger.
Daisuke (Yusaku Matsuda), the 30-ish younger son of a rich and powerful businessman, has broken away from his family to the extent that he lives in his own modest house, though the bills for it and for his servants are paid by the older brother who runs the family business.
Morita is a major new talent in the Japanese cinema.
Yoshimitsu Morita (7949 words)
Morita marks another dramatic scene, in which Mitsue finds out her sister is the chat-room's “rose”, is marked by jump cut focus changes that remind me of the use of the same eccentric device in a similarly intense scene in Carax's Mauvais sang (1986).
Morita's TV hosts are caricatures but each is distinctly typed – a nouveau mod, a bespectacled “intellectual”, an outraged airhead – and his or her performance pushed.
Morita's method of shooting a scene in which two men simply converse on a park bench is magical.
