Polar Bear Bears Boredom (2021)

...I wish there were more proposals like this suitable for children. Above all, because it is very interesting from an artistic point of view. Also, because aesthetically and narratively it bears little resemblance to the predominant animation created for children. Sadly, it is not usual for filmmakers as personal as Koji Yamamura to dedicate a work to this area of the medium.

Dozsens of Norths (2021)

[…] Yamamura seems to paint a gigantic cosmic freezeframe of suffering, where the more impotent the animation is, the more emergent will be result.
[…] In his filmic journey Yamamura offers up to us a Boschian anatomy of dreams, where the obsessive elements are able to create an iconic language that, in a little over one hour, we will be able to read.
FILMEXPLORER | Text: Giuseppe Di Salvatore | 10 September, 2022 | Switzerland


Another special mention went to Japanese star Koji Yamamura's first feature film (short, though, only an hour of time), Dozens of Norths (Ikuta no kita). And it, it must be said, made an utterly mesmerizing impression. The first thing that fascinated me was Yamamura's fantastic, subtle graphics, not unlike his most recent films, which were both surreal and absurd, or rather the movement of the film itself was absurd. …

...Dozens of Norths is an especially recommendable proposal for those who conceive animation as an essentially plastic art, for those who are more interested in aesthetics than in history in the conventional sense of the term. Precisely for this reason it will appeal, above all, to viewers interested in experimental proposals that blur the border between cinema and other arts such as painting or music. In fact, perhaps it will be more appreciated if, in the style of the so-called musical compositions, it is analyzed as an audiovisual suite.

"Avec ses paysages pétrifiés ou endormis peuplés de figures tantôt reconnaissables, tantôt chimériques, ses mouvements minimalistes, ses lents travellings sur de vastes compositions crayonnées, avec, pour seules paroles, des cartons à la façon du cinéma muet, le premier long métrage de Yamamura Kôji déroute et fascine.

Nejimura89 | Note | Film review of the fastest film ever made, "TDozens og Norths!2 Maybe this is what an "unprecedented" feature film is all about. ......! | 2021.11.23 | Japan

"The long-awaited first feature from a legend of Japanese animation, this trip through the darkest places on earth more than meets expectation. ...
It feels purposefully like a dream, showing an author falling asleep and two smaller men walking away with his quill like arctic explorers. These are the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern of the piece, guiding us through a hellish landscape that feels inspired by both Dante and Kafka in its depiction of sadness and depravity. ...
The result is one of the boldest animated features I’ve seen in a while, a journey through an animation world worthy of inclusion alongside the likes of Pixar, Hertzfeld and Miyazaki. "
Redmond Bacon | DMovies | Dozens of Norths (Ikuta no Kita) | 22 December 2021
" ...the incredible harmony between the animation and the music will make it impossible to imagine any other symbiosis. “Dozens of Norths” is done in the spirit of silent movies, and when Breukner’s tunes are gone, it’s the impeccable sound design by Koji Kasamatsu that takes over with the sound of chilly winds, rusty machines and breaking waves adding to the feeling of deep void and solitude.
...The film doesn’t have a clear plot, just like a dream. What it does have is a magical atmosphere, with every detail executed by Yamamura’s skillful hand. It’s a gem that won’t click with everyone because it requires passion for arthouse animation and concentration."

Doi Nobuaki | Media Arts Current Contents | Feature Length Animation as an Experimental Site, Dully Glowing in the Corona Disaster | 2021.10.25 | Japan

Focusing the details accurately with a rhythm that matches perfectly but shifting into a bird's-eye view makes the viewers lose what happened just a moment ago. Many feature-length animations are based on detailed episodes centered around a solid story and these details make a whole story dense. What happened in this film is the opposite: the details seem to be connected somewhere, but it is possible that they don't have any connections. It makes me feel fun, and I would not be the only one. The high-impact visual that changes in a blink of an eye with some uncanny and humorous melody keeps attracting our eyes. The challenge of deviating from the story, which should be an important element of feature films, makes this film innovative.

Satie's "Parade" (2016)

Autre film venu du Japon, le court métrage de Koji Yamamura, « Parade » de Satie, illustration en dessin animé de la pièce musicale composée en 1916 par Erik Satie. Yamamura aussi s’intéresse à la France dans ce nouveau court, parsemant l’ensemble de citations en français de Satie, faisant intervenir artistes de la belle époque, de Cocteau à Picasso, et organisant son film en chapitres, comme l’était la musique. Mais surtout, il n’oublie pas que Satie, en plus de faire partie d’un renouveau du paysage musical du début du siècle, fut proche de l’esprit des avant-gardes comme les surréalistes. Sa musique, à la limite de l’atonal parfois, imprévisible et excentrique, est parfaite pour le style du cinéaste. Alignant des personnages ou objets absurdes et quasi pataphysiques, qu’il anime en rythme par rapport aux différents instruments joués dans le morceau, Yamamura s’amuse à réinventer un mouvement fantaisiste et coloré, complexe et épuré dans un univers connu mais méconnaissable.

Comment: Koji's new film is a real masterpice - fresh, crazy, full of small and big surprises. Surprising is also big stylistic variety of Koji's artworks but even in small details you can always recognize the hand of great artist Yamamura Koji.

Franz Kafka's A Country Doctor (2007)

Like seeing psychology with a convex lens ...
Koji Yamamura, who has been producing fruitful plays of “Mt. Head”, “The Old Crocodile"” and absurd drama, challenged Kabuka Honmaru. It uses a convex lens called animation to show the psychology of a person that no one in the world has ever tried. (Kihachiro Kawamoto Animation Artist 2007)


In our minds reading good fantasy stories, things are getting bigger and smaller, frightening and humorous. Koji Yamamura's work tells us that while animation can really do a lot, we only saw a part of it. Humor and fear, beauty and grotesque, profoundness and lightness are intensely mixed for 20 minutes! (Motoyuki Shibata, Professor, Translator, University of Tokyo 2007)
Joy, enjoyment, and laughter do not always occupy life. The pain, duty, harsh reality and sadness are waiting. If you can't help it, how can you decide on a path that doesn't break and walk? Kafka probably knew on the cobblestones of Prague. When facing life, the frozen hands are connected. Hand to connect. The body temperature born there is transmitted from the video of Director Yamamura. (Hajime Kajiwara, Editor-in-Chief of CUKR, Czech Information Magazine 2007)

Chris Grove, Animation Magazine, July 2005, USA
A work that will always be drawn into the light crocodile appearance. (Pickt Up OCT+NOV 2005 Japan)
Koji Yamamura's latest work, "The Old Crocodile" is filled with such primitive charm of animation, backed by delicate technical skills. (Ichiyuki Fukagawa "Esquire "Web Must See 2005 Japan)

Mt. Head (2002)

The story that unfolds is surreal in nature, but the animation renders it quite riveting. >Nishikata Film Review


Unlike conventional anime where it comes to saving resources with images with very slow camera movements and limited animation, Yamamura animates every frame of his stories, and in addition to visual details, his stories do not present characters with superpowers or ancestral monsters, but they show a sad society with muted colors to indicate the lack of hope we have if we continue traveling along the same path. >ENFILME Cine Todo el Tiempo (Spanish)
The leading figure of his generation, Yamamura best represents the vitality, versatility and artistry of Japanese independent animation, and Mt. Head represents a pivotal point in an oeuvre that has drawn comparisons with influences as disparate as Paul Klee and Monty Python, while remaining true to its cultural roots. The tale of a stingy old man who plunges into madness after tearing out a cherry tree he discovers growing from his head from a pip he has swallowed, it provided the perfect taster to the director’s witty and often grotesque meditations on time, space and identity. >BFI
Upon first viewing Yamamura’s short, it initially seems to simply be a film focused on greed, but dig a little deeper and you’ll uncover various interpretations revolving around society and the environment. Combining wonderful technique, with a resonating, yet easily accessible story, it’s easy to see why Atama Yama has become a firm-favourite for many short film fans who have been lucky enough to see it on the festival scene. >FANTASY ABOUT TRANSFORMATION IN ANIMATION DIRECTED BY KOJI YAMAMURA: Rob Munday
