日本の大島渚監督が80歳で死去する


Japanese Film Director Oshima Dies at 80
( TIME )

Nagisa Oshima, a Japanese director internationally acclaimed for his
films “Empire of Passion” and “In the Realm of the Senses,” has
died of pneumonia. He was 80.

A former student radical from Japan’s ancient capital of Kyoto,
Oshima debuted in 1959 with “A Town of Love and Hope,” quickly
earning a reputation of a “new wave” director with social and
political themes during the 1960, often depicting youths raging
against the society. He tackled controversial social issues
throughout his career, ranging from capital punishment and racism to
homosexuality.

But he is probably best remembered for his 1976 film “In the Realm
of the Senses,” a story based on a psychotic murder case set in pre-
World War II Japan, which stirred public indecency debate in Japan
and elsewhere because of explicit sex scenes. Two years later, Oshima
won best director award at the Cannes International Film Festival
with “Empire of Passion.”

Oshima also was a popular guest on television quiz and talk shows,
often triggering fiery debate. Soichiro Tahara, a journalist and talk
show host who often argued with Oshima, tweeted his message of
condolence.

“I was scared of him but he was also like a very supportive brother.
He taught me many things, scolded me and yelled at me. But his words
were always affectionate,” Tahara wrote. “Mr. Oshima did not care
about taboo or compliance, not even a bit. He said what he wanted to
say, what he had to say. It’s hard to find a person like him
anymore. “

日本の大島渚監督が80歳で死去する
( TIME )

映画「エンパイア・オブ・パッション」(愛の亡霊)や「イン・ザ・レルム・
オブ・ザ・センシズ」(愛のコリーダ)で国際的に称賛された日本人の監督で
あるナギサ・オーシマが肺炎で死去した。80歳だった。

京都という日本の古い首都の急進派の学生だったオーシマは、1959年に「ア・
タウン・オブ・ラブ・アンド・ホープ」(愛と希望の街)でデビューし、早く
も1960年に社会的、政治的テーマを持った「ニュー・ウェーブ」の監督の評判
を獲得、ひんぱんに社会に怒りをたぎらせる若者を描いた。生涯を通じて物議
を醸す社会的問題に取り組み、その射程は死刑と人種差別から同性愛にまで及
んだ。

だが、恐らく彼は1976年の「イン・ザ・レルム・オブ・ザ・センシズ」で最も
よく記憶されている。物語は第二次世界大戦前夜の日本で起きた猟奇的な殺人
事件を基にし、露骨な性場面のために日本内外で公然わいせつの議論を巻き起
こした。その2年後に、オーシマは「エンパイア・オブ・パッション」でカン
ヌ国際映画祭の最優秀監督賞を受賞した。

オーシマはまたテレビのクイズやトーク番組のゲストとして人気があり、ひん
ぱんに熱い議論を引き起こした。ジャーナリストにしてトーク番組の司会者だ
った田原総一朗はひんぱんにオーシマと論争したのだが、弔意の言葉をツィー
トした。

「とても怖いけど、とても心強い兄貴のような存在だった。色んなことを教え
られた。怒られた、怒鳴られた、しかし愛のこもった言葉だった」と田原は書
いた。「オーシマさんはタブーやコンプライアンスなんかくそくらえで、言い
たいこと、言わなければならないということをガンガン言った。こういう人が
少なくなった」

■ 編集後記 ■


「愛のコリーダ」は東京・池袋の文芸座のリバイバル特集で見ました。場内は
満席で、両隣に座ったのが若い女性。上映中にこちらの生唾を飲み込む音が聞
こえないかとヒヤヒヤしたのですが、いつかそんな心配を忘れてスクリーンに
釘づけになったことを覚えています。

ただ、その画面はとんでもない代物でした。例えば、男女が交わる場面になる
と、局部が映る画面の真ん中を切り取って上下だけを貼り合わせたような映像
に変わるのです(数年前にネットでも見ましたが、それは穏当なボカシによる
修正版でした)。それでも素晴らしい映画でした。語の真の意味において純愛
映画の傑作です。夕陽の赤に託された反戦の思想も鮮烈でした。

合掌。まだ見ぬ遺作「御法度」と「愛のコリーダ」ノーカット版のために。
