Movie previews 007: The World is Not Enough

Movie previews

“Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”(2001, Warner Bros)

The film version of “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” has been completed! Its preview showing was held in London on Nov. 4. The film will be released on Dec. 1 in Japan.
The novel version is currently one of the most popular novels in the world. It has been translated into 46 languages, and 110 million copies of the book sold worldwide.
The novel begins with Harry an orphan, having survived the death of his parents, raised miserably by his aunt and her husband. One day a wizard appears to tell Harry and that he too is a wizard and has reached the age when he is eligible to enter the school for the witches and wizards, ‘Hogwarts’. Thus, Harry goes to Hogwarts and becomes involved in various adventures. Harry, turns out to be especially powerful wizard having survived an attack from the most evil wizard whose name can not be mentioned directly by most wizards and witches.

Although it is classified as juvenile literature, the “Harry Potter” series has attracted not only children but adult readers. Through the books we are able to experience Harry’s magical school. The books have the power to remind us of our school days and our fantasies from those days, this, it seems to me, is the very attraction of the “Harry Potter” series. I hope that the film has the same kind of attraction.

Directed by Christopher Columbus

この映画では典型的な「ストックホルムシンドローム」が見られる。
誘拐された令嬢がテロリストに影響される。
役柄では顔に傷があったが、ロバートカーライルはいい男だもんね。

英国人ALTがピアスブロスナン大好きで、ブロスナンとボンドとどっちが、と聞いた。
ボンドを演じるブロスナンが好き、という答えに少し年長のALTが「ボンドはショーンコネリーが最高」と、これまた30代以上の英国系の男性が言うことであった。
「いや、日本もそうですよ」と返したっけか。


007: The World is Not Enough
(1999, UIP ; 128 min. /U.K.)
Sir Robert King, an oil tycoon, is assassinated in front of James Bond.
James Bond is a bodyguard of King’s daughter, Elektra. He knew that she was once kidnapped by the terrorist Renard but escaped by herself. Since Renard got a bullet in the brain, he lost his sense of pain. It’s a mystery and a key of this movie.
