Can time be made to stand still? Can it be reversed? Koji Yamamura's Muybridge's Strings is a meditation on this theme, contrasting the worlds of the photographer Eadweard Muybridge -- who in 1878 successfully photographed consecu- tive phases in the movement of a galloping horse -- and a mother who, watching her daughter grow up, realizes she is slipping away from her. Moving between California and Tokyo, between the nineteenth century and the twenty-first, the film focuses on some of the high points in Muybridge's troubled life and intercuts them with the mother's surrealistic daydreams -- a poetic clash that explores the irrepressible human desire to seize life's fleeting moments, to freeze the instants of happiness. Enriched by Koji Yamamura's refined artistry and Normand Roger's soundtrack, Muybridge's Strings observes the ties that cease to bind, fixes its gaze on the course of life, and presents a moment in time suspended on the crystalline notes of a canon by J.S. Bach.

A very old crocodile, so old that he had witnessed the building of the pyramids, was suffering from rheumatism, and no longer able to catch his food. In desperation, he decided to eat his great grand son. Although his thousands of years of longevity entitled him to much respect, the family decided he would have to be put down. Unable to bear the disrespect of his family, the old crocodile said goodbye to the Nile. One day the old crocodile met an octopus. The octopus treated her new friend to a variety of fish that she caught just for him. When the night fell, he couldn’t restrain himself from eating one of the octopus’s legs. Since then, the old crocodile began to help himself to the octopus’ leg every night…

Review
The story that unfolds is surreal in nature, but the animation renders it quite riveting. >Site
Atama-yama no es la típica animación japonesa, es algo que sobrepasa esa y muchas fronteras. >Site
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. >Site

Synopsis
North is everywhere solitary.
Here is all North.
This is a record of the people I met in the North.
However, my memory is fragmented and does not get the point at all.
Now I'm starting to wonder my efforts came to nothing.
I'm just getting the occasional recognition of the existence of the world through the dull perception changes shape little by little.
