Animation Review
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.

Great artist Koji Yamamura honors his stunning philosophical meditation. Using a series of photographs of Edward Mybridge's horse, he contrasts with a 21st-century mother watching her daughter grow. One of the most perfect movies we have seen. [2012.10, Igor Kovalev, animation director]

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)

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)

“If you want or need an antidote to the often predictable formulas of Hollywood studios’ animated fare, look no further than Yamamura Koji’s pencil-drawn film The Old Crocodile.”

Atama Yama (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
