Pieter-Jan Van Haecke Psychocinematography With his narrative, Zeze movingly reveals that the ground for true revolution should be love and its goal the realization of that place where a woman can realize her agency as subject. Sep 27, 2020 Full Review Panos Kotzathanasis Asian Film Vault "The Chrysanthemum and the Guillotine" has its faults, mostly deriving from its duration, but in the end, it is a film that the viewer can enjoy, as both its arcs and their mixture is interesting, meaningful and entertaining. Dec 1, 2019 Full Review Mark Schilling Japan Times One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. I'm not sure if Takahisa Zeze knows this phrase but it applies to the heroes of his new film.
