Cutie and the Boxer (Japanese)

Rating = B

This documentary film is about the marriage and art of Ushio Shinohara and Noriko Shinohara. He is a pop artist whose art is well known but doesn't sell so well. She is met him when she was 19 and he was 41, and the marriage has often been hard for her with her not being able to do much art. In more recent years, she has been able to do more art, and her reputation has increased, particuarly through her biographical paintings of the character Cutie and the character's husband Bullie. The film was nominated for an Academy Award; it's probably not that good, but it is worth seeing.
