Looking up at many petals
on a cherry tree in dusk
I feel as I remain on my feet
at the bottom of blue water
This verse sure be out of season, as about three months have already passed from the full bloom of cherry blossoms.
Yet, I clearly remember the feeling of my standing at the bottom of water and seeing the floating thousands petals above me.
" The Big Blue"( Le Grand Bleu) is a film directed by Luc Besson, based on a story of Jacques Myol, a reputable diver.
Long time has passed since Jacques and his childhood friend, Enzo, dived together. Now, Jacques is an aloof man who loves to communicate with dolphins rather than with men.
Enzo has succeed to find out a long lost friend, Jacques, and invited him to compete in diving again as in their childhood that Enzo dreamed for long time.
For Jacques, diving is the best way to communicate with his old friend, and Jacques' lover, Johana, keeps an eye on the two, being a little embarrassed with faint jealous for them.
And there is always extending blue of ocean behind the three.
The film was released in 1988, and I watched a rental video long after from the release.
I rent it being attempted by the title, and then was enchanted with the whole story as well as the fascinating, translucent blue colour.
The final competition between the two went too far.
And, no one knows whether it was Jacques' illusion or not that at last he met a dolphin that invited him further.
Now I looked up at the sky to find any pods of dolphin-shaped clouds but I only saw some cumulus which are floating and waxing across such a big sky blue.
Sheer summer has come.
