Weekend 609.0

Rewatched The Princess and the Pilot on Tubi. This is beautiful storytelling. The character development is exceptionally rich, and the themes are timeless (honor, duty, grief, sadness, discrimination, self-control, and hope). It doesn’t have the Hollywood ending and eschews “the message” popular with Western studios in pursuit of modern audiences.

Until your sadness ends
Just close your eyes for now, and let me protect you in my breast
When you open your eyes, is not something there?
When you reach tomorrow, something surely awaits

Seiko Niizuma – Toki no Tsubasa (YouTube)
