Каким-то чудом, на интуиции и туманных воспоминаниях о "Цитадели" взял вопрос про Сент-Экзюпери. Впрочем, Сент-Экс - всегда Сент-Экс, может, ничего удивительного тут и нет.
В книжном долго смотрел на эстонскую книгу про паломничества и крестовые походы в аспекте средневековой Эстонии и на DVD с комедией Уэса Андерсона "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou" с Биллом Мюрреем в главной роли. Не совсем понятно, стоит ли покупать то и другое. И не слишком ли много у меня дома нечитанных книг и несмотренных фильмов.
В рассылке фанатов студии "Ghibli" - сообщение Рёко Тояма о Миядзаки и Осии.
"I've just returned from a talk event between Mamoru OSHII and Toshio SUZUKI of Ghibli.
It was really interesting, and they talked a little bit about Miyazaki-San, but I don't have time to write up a report right now. Anyway, at the end of the program they were asked about their future projects.
Suzuki answered that he can't talk about the next feature film since the contract with the original author hasn't been finalized. But it will be announced on Dec. 13th from Toho. (I think that he said Dec. 13th, but since I wasn't taking a memo, I might remember it wrong.)
He didn't say "Miyazaki's next film," but that means at least one of the three new features will be based on someone's work, not Ghibli's original story.
Oshii said that he is going to make a new feature-length animation film. This time, it will be a very straightforward story ("very rare for me," as Oshii put it). It's a love story, and when he was asked if it's a straightforward love story, he answered, "Well, of course it's depends how you look at, but I think it is".
