Perhaps Love is a 2005 movie (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perhaps_Love) which reminded me of Baz Luhrman's Moulin Rouge. Before anything else I was amazed at the quality of a blue ray dvd. I've been watching too much online streaming video that I forgot how good a super clear dvd is to watch.
And since the dvd was so clear, I was amazed at how gorgeous looking Takeshi Kaneshiro is..still. Takeshi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Takeshi_Kaneshiro) is not new to me. I have been a fan of his for quite some time now and have seen many of his works in Japan, Hongkong and China.
I loved his Japan tv dramas God Give Me More Time, Golden Bowl and Love 2000. I watched his Hongkong movies Anna Magdalena and Tempting Hearts. I loved his movie Turn Left, Turn Right. I even have a documentary of his travel in Scandinavia (?) or was it the North Pole? And more forgetable is this american movie he made called Too Tired To Die with Marisa Tomei.
I knew Takeshi is talented and versatile but one talent of his I kept forgetting is that he can actually sing and that was my revelation in Perhaps Love. Since the story within a story plot of the movie is a musical, Takeshi did a lot of singing in this movie.
Takeshi did this movie when he was 32 years old and I just could not help making screen captures of his beautiful face. I remember seeing a photo book of Takeshi in Shanghai last September and I wonder if the book is still there when I go back. I hope I have enough money to buy it. Otherwise his huge Armani billboards inside Shanghai Pudong airport will have to do for now.
