Two of Asia's biggest stars, Japanese heartthrob Takenouchi Yutaka and Hong Kong diva Kelly Chen fall in and out of love in the stirring romantic drama Calmi Cuori Appassionati directed by Nakae Isamu. Based on a best-selling novel, the beautifully shot hit film depicts the decade-long love story of Junsei and Aoi, who first met as art students in Japan. Years later, Junsei is living alone in Florence, and still unable to let go of his memories of Aoi who has a life of her own in Milan now. Junsei remembers their promise to meet each other again in the Florence Cathedral after ten years, but will Aoi show up?

Professional Review of "Calmi Cuori Appassionati (Blu-ray) (Full Slip Numbering Limited Edition) (Korea Version)"

November 6, 2002

This professional review refers to Calmi Cuori Appassionati (Japan Version)
Florence, a spiritual symbol of the golden age of Renaissance; Yutaka Takenouchi, one of the most handsome actors in Japan; Kelly Chan, a gorgeous pop singer from Hong Kong, when these three elements are put together, you should be able to expect how exquisite and delicate this film is going to look like.

It features a typical love story. Junsei Agata (Yutaka Takenouchi) is a restoration expert in Florence, Italy. His job is to restore old paintings from decaying. Through the years Junsei has been unable to forget Aoi (Kelly Chan), his ex-girlfriend. One day, he sees Aoi again in Florence and he remembers a promise he made with Aoi ten years ago...

It is a very slow-paced movie. What I don't like about it is the pointless prolongation of scenes. The plot is quite simple, but every simple matter is turned into complicated affair. A three minute decision can be prolonged to a thirty minutes deliberation. Junsei often fails to express his feeling toward the one he loves. For instance, he never communicates with his father properly, he does not understand what he thinks at all. He does not offer any opportunity for Aoi to discuss her pregnancy too. The pace and the transition lag seriously due to the vacillation of the characters. This film is absolutely not suitable for people who lack patience.

Back to the story itself, the love affair between Junsei and Aoi is always oscillating. Junsei does not know if Aoi still loves him or not, Aoi is also uncertain if she should accept Junsei again. It is a genuine account of a dynamic relationship. The director understands that he is not shooting a fairy tale, the story will end up dry and insipid if the relationship is always stable. One interesting take is the parellel of Junsei's profession and his love. He is good at restoring paintings but bad in restoring a deteriorated love relationship. This irony is sharp and sarcastic.

In terms of the cinematography, which I think is the essence of this film, every scene and every actor are beautifully shot. I am not sure if it is the VCD itself or not, most of the scenes seem to be coated in blue tint. The blue setting intensifies the depressed atmosphere of the story a lot. Yutaka Takenouchi and Kelly Chan look perfectly glamorous in the film, their good commands of languages (Italian, Japanese and English) make their roles convincing. However, to me, what is most unforgettable is not the love affair between Junsei and Aoi, but the teacher/lover relationship between Junsei and his Italian teacher. Conflict makes good drama. What makes this relationship appealing is its uncertainty and the ambivalence of the characters' minds. As an audience, it is always a pleasure to watch something that cannot find a resolve easily.

With clever use of cinematography and mood music, Calmi Cuori Appassionati is a sophisticated sculpture carved and polished by a skilful sculptor, but this is a sculpture without a soul, what it lacks is depth of meaning and redeeming value.

VCD (HK version) - The VCD version features a double audio track, one is in the original trio language and the other in Cantonese. Ignore the Cantonese version please, unless you can tolerate the absurdity of seeing Italian and Japanese speaking Cantonese. The image and sound qualities are not bad, but in order to appreciate the decent cinematography of this film, the DVD is an inevitable choice.

Cool guy(s) - Yutaka Takenouchi, Kelly Chan

Art, Romance and Italy Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
What more do you want if you can have a glimpse of Italy, its architecture and art (need much much more!)
and Takenouchi Yutaka at his best with his moody
fatastic looks and angst? I don't particularly like
the character Kelly Chen plays . But still its romantic element somehow is there. It's better than lots of other very silly ones. At least this one is done with very good taste.
I also like the music, it puts me in the mood of
remembering the fabulous Florence and its museums
and yes...........

Artistically Captivating Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
What can I say, this movie is mostly set in Italy where art and fashion flourished. This is the most beautiful japanese romance movie that combines the beaufitul Italian landscape with Japanese hunk Yutaka Takenouchi and Hongkong beauty Kelly Chen who endlessly shines in Japanese entertainment industry. Calmi Cuori Appassionati showcases the majestic paintings by Michelangelo as well as the St. Peters Cathedral in Florence. This movie also introduces numerous Italian designers labels such as Fendi where Kelly Chen is practically groomed into a walking model. Romantic as the title might suggest, Appassionati highlights on the theme, the power of love and promise. Yutaka, who restores paintings, falls in love with Kelly back in their schooldays in Japan. Their relationship fails along the way due to a misunderstanding and the couple have decided to part. Yet fate decides to rejoice the lovebirds in Italy. Their tumultous journey towards the bliss is put into test by the promise they made 10 years ago. Appassionati reaffirms the power and depth of love. An artistic movie for the fans of romance movies. The Limited Edition comes with a nice guide book to Italy in japanese language. There are many fascinating features in the DVD including a myriad of Soundtracks and other valuable informations. Calmi Cuori Appasionati is a pleasurable love story.
