Kuro Obi (2007), Japan
trailer, making ofmovieblog

The movie tagline: “Real Fight, Real Karate, Real Japan” just says it all. Nothing to add, and my review is only a variation of the same statement. I waited so much to see this. There is no English subtitled edition yet, but finally they released the DVD in German (with original audio too, check Amazon), so I watched it. The movie lived up to my expections, which were based on the trailer and the fact that the main “actors” are real karate masters of 1st, 5th and 6th dan.

goldencup.jpgA couple of weeks ago I found an interesting Bhutanase blog on the Internet and sent them some questions about the movie industry. Norbu from the site “Kuzu” (Bhutan Weblog: www.kuzuzangpo.com) was kind enough to answer them, so here’s an interview with him about Bhutanese cinema:

asiafan: – Imdb lists 10 movies from Bhutan, are there more?

There are lots more movies than 10. The number should be close to 100 or even more.

– Are people interested in local movies? Are they released on DVD?

Local movies are very popular now with their qualities improving. People know about every local movie shown through advertisement and word-of-mouth. Most of the movies produced have DVD releases. More »
