This observational film by Soda really questions the conventional boundary that separates the mentally ill and healthy people.

想田導演的這部「觀察映畫」,對於我們慣於將精神病患者與健康者劃分邊界的作法提出了深切的質疑。

The uncontrollable nature of our SEISHIN, or mind, is depicted in its raw form.

看這部電影時,我每五分鐘微笑一次,卻也哭了三回。這無疑地是一部傑出的作品。獻給那些無法不對於靈魂的無形與神秘而起敬的人們。

It is the unique film in the whole world of this quality and power, with courage and humanity to cross the border. These mental patients are talented people. They have human dignity. They have human soul. Body can be damaged but soul can never be damaged. And Soda understands this very well. It is a fascinating film with amazing quality.

“BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD – JURY’S COMMENT”

Hong Kong International Film Festival

Peace is a quiet film with an unusual power to move. By following the ordinary lives of people and cats, the camera leads the audience to discover the concept of peace in its most fundamental sense, not as a state of negotiated, reluctant coexistence, but as an idea that lies at the core of our humanity. The film reveals the sublime through the mundane. (Jurors: Carma HINTON, Ruby YANG, FUJIOKA Asako)

這是一部安靜而帶有特殊力量的電影。藉由拍攝人與貓的日常生活,鏡頭帶領觀眾探尋「和平」最根本的概念;和平不是一種談判後不情願接受的共存結果,而是存在我們人性的核心價值理念。這部電影顯示了世俗平凡中的真善美。

- 香港國際電影節最佳紀錄片獎 評審團意見

『FILM COMMENT』

by Robert Koehler

….a quality clearly on display in Kazuhiro Soda’s lovely, handmade Peace. On the surface, this is a story about caregivers, specifically the husband-and-wife team Toshio and Hiroko, who provide services for the elderly and infirm in their Tokyo prefecture. But as Soda’s camera casually observes his subjects, the lack of insistence upon a central theme frees the film to become about everything: from the behavior of a group of stray cats Toshio cares for, to the ways in which certain Tokyo alleys grow dark and forbidding as night sets in. This type of cinematic freedom is embedded in today’s vogue for more observational documentaries in—think of Sweetgrass or Foreign Parts—and, with it, Soda has developed into one of the discipline’s most interesting, and freest, artists.

影片清楚地顯現想田導演這種可愛、如手工製造的「和平」。表面上,這是一部關於照護義工—特別是Toshio和Hiroko這對夫妻—服務老弱者的故事;但隨著想田導演的鏡頭看似不經意地紀錄被攝者,不為了特定主題而拍攝的方式,使得整部電影的視野更為寬廣:從Toshio照料的一群街貓生活,到東京某些小巷入夜之後的黑暗與禁忌。這種類型的電影自由已反映在當今對於追求更多觀察式紀錄片的風潮上—比如《青青綠草(Sweetgrass)》和《外來產品(Foreign Parts)》這兩部片—於此,想田和弘可說是這個領域中最為有趣、也最自由的作者之一。
