Social Commentary/Distant Realism
Tokyo Story, by YasujirĂ´ Ozu

	A sea of mornings,
		An ocean of memories,
			A drop of bitter and sweet,
				Like water, never to have taste.
	Looking back from an aged wave,
		Nothing is left to be shaved,
			And it goes,
				For going forward is brave.
	In Ocean,
		There is no right direction.

- Man who escaped the wind.

The Pianist, by Roman Polanski

The fog is not holding back,
	Then close your eyes,
	The train is leaving the station,
	Like what it used to be,
	But this time,
	There is no return.
Smell the fog,
Smell the suffocating,
Smell the breathing,
	The memory is more alive than the body,
	And they have left a long time ago.

				An incomprehensive illusion.
The Doctor had called.
