Good bye, Mr Satoshi Kon

Post by Elodie » 25 Aug 2010, 07:19

Perhaps some of you know it already, but Satoshi Kon died yesterday. He was only 47.

Satoshi Kon was a great movie director and made wonderful movies like :

and Paprika

He also made a TV serie named "Paranoia Agent"

Paprika is the first Satoshi Kon's movie I saw (in fact I had already seen Paranoia Agent's episodes, but as I didn't follow entirely the anime, I didn't really understand the subject ^^"). It was at the Festival in Annecy and I fell in love with Satoshi Kon's art. I remember when I saw Paprika in Annecy, I feel I was flying with the main character during some scenes (the opening, the assault as a Sangoku on her flying cloud (5'45)...). So many wonderful moments !
Since, I frequently listen Paprika's music and like to see again the DVD ^^

What a pity... I'm sure Satoshi Kon had many other ideas and good films to show us... ='(

KON Satoshi Last message in 25th August 2010
 "さようなら/SAYONARA/Farewell/Adieu/Auf Wiedersehen/Adiós"

Elodie-san, you will meet "夢見る機械" at Cinema on 2011 or 2012.
The last works takes over Kon's family and his many friends.

And remember, his world, storyboard (that you have a book about ANIME e-konte) and soul will never die.
