“Nosce Te Ipsum “ – that’s easier said than done. Eclectic – the best single word that succinctly describes me. Then again, I’m not the type of person who describes himself with a concoction of adjectives. Instead of mere labels, I’d rather use operational description of myself – what stimulates my mind, what makes my heart beat -- in general, what makes me tick. So here goes … Although I hate mushy movies, I am a hardcore romantic. But romance to me is not limited to most people’s concept of it. It is not only about ardent emotional attachment between two people. It is that something that stirs up one’s deep emotions, whether they be love or hate, happiness or sadness, hope or despair. It works through the beauty of art. Art in any form. Not everybody experiences this, only those with passion. Don’t you think “Hero” (the movie) is romantic? Well it is indeed very much. It is not a “kung fu” movie – it is a romantic movie. But not for obvious reasons like – a protagonist sacrificing his life to prove his love for his woman, a servant’s undying loyalty to her master, and the main hero, after all that he’s done to be able to avenge his family, when finally face-to-face with his tormentor, ultimately changes heart, for the sake of the greater good – that of his country. The bigger romance in this movie is not the story, but rather, the presentation. There is beauty all around, all the time. Sure it may seem unreal – fantastic martial arts, mystic characters and exotic backdrops. But it is precisely the presentation of these elements that brings out the awe of the movie’s romantic beauty. It is not violence, but rather, art – in motion. The beauty of human form and movement. Even in little things there is so much beauty – like the slow-motion swing of a sword, as it glides over a pile of autumn-colored leaves, which follows the wake of its wind. (To be continued ...)
