Sunshine Through The Rain

Me again. There's thick clouds over midtown, and the sun is trying to peep through. Days like this never fail to remind me of my all-time favorite beautiful short film Sunshine Through The Rain from Akira Kurosawa's Dreams. Have I mentioned this before? Can I ever not mention this film when it's rainy and sunny together?

In the film, a young boy ignores his mother's call to come home; its' about to rain, but the sun is out, one of those lovely rainbow-inducing spring days, the kind where foxes and rabbits have their woodsy weddings. the boy witnesses the secret ceremony, and is caught watching. a fox beats him home and leaves a forboding message with his mother, she turns him away from home.

If you haven't seen it yet, you can see it on yutube, get it on n'flix or come over to ours anytime for a viewing of this + the peach blossom ghosts.
