VENICE Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Core Black White Clearance , Italy, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- An alley where two tenacious women face each other on a hot Sunday afternoon was the stage on which Emma Dante, the Italian theater playwright turned movie director at the ongoing Venice Film Festival, guided her public in a journey inside complexity of human nature.
Via Castellana Bandiera, the first Italian film in the running for the coveted Golden Lion award, on Thursday opened to warm applause at Lido island in Venice, the Italian water city.
The story, based on a book written by Dante herself in 2008, is about a fierce showdown between two women of different cultures and generations who refuse to give way when their cars confront each other on a narrow street, Via Castellana Bandiera, in the Sicilian capital city of Palermo.
Rosa and Samira face off in a silent duel that is fought out in the intimate violence of their stares, which is "monstrously true," Dante said in a crowded press conference surrounded by her cast. Besides the director herself playing the role of Rosa, main roles include actors such as Elena Cotta and Alba Rohrwacher.
The result was "a truly excellent movie of great poetical hardness," Valerio Caprara, a noted film critic and professor at University of Naples L'Orientale, told Xinhua.
"It is a Western-style duel for life in which the good and the evil mix with each other, calling the public to make one's own opinion out of any schemes or preconditions," he added.
Other critics with no hesitation agreed the film was a "piece of art," powered by the skills of theater. "The movie's sequences appear sometimes cut like a play, or a drama, which creates a large space to both host the story of every single character as well as that of the entire village," French cinema critic Simona Manceau told Xinhua.
"In life you are sometimes obtuse, it is state of mind that leads to nowhere and prevents you from understanding that there is someone else who may see things differently," Dante went on to say.
The absurd confrontation between the two women lasts more than a day. When the night creeps into the street, the drivers resist thirst, hunger and sleep persevering in a stubbornness that no longer has anything rational about it, while neighborhood residents start making bets on who will prevail.
Via Castellana Bandiera does exist in Palermo, also Dante's hometown.
TOKYO, April 1 (Xinhua) -- The Japanese Cabinet on Tuesday approved new principles and guidelines on arms export, marking a major change on the war-renouncing country's defense stance for the first time in nearly half a century.
The newly adopted three principles on the transfer of defense equipment state that Japan will prohibit the export of weapons to countries involved in conflicts, and the new rules would also apply when exports violate United Nations resolutions.
With restrict screening, Japan will allow arms exports only if they serve the purpose of contributing to international cooperation and its security interests, according to the new rules.
The unstated use and transfer of Japanese equipment to third parties will also be kept in check.
Japan's original "three principles" on arms exports were adopted in 1967 and turned into a virtual blanket ban in 1976 and have been seen as a symbol of the country's pacifist stance.
The 1967 principles said Japan banned the transfer of weapons to communist states, countries subject to embargoes under UN resolutions and those involved in international conflicts.
Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, however, is eager to revise the country's defense and security policy and the new guidelines are one of his major policy goals.
The conservative leader is expected to decide whether to re- interpret the country's war-renouncing constitution to enable Japan to exercise the right to collective self-defense.
Japan's Defense Minister Itsunori Onodera said after a Cabinet meeting in which the new rules were approved Tuesday that Japan will actively facilitate cooperation on defense equipment and technology with other countries, especially with the United States.
Analysts here say that Abe's move on the new arms export rules and attempt to exercise collective self-defense right will change the country's post-war pacifist road based on it war-renouncing constitution.
They said that the new arms export policy actually opened the door for Tokyo to unlimitedly transfer weapons and military technology under the banner of "contribution to international peace" and "the need of national security."
The policy, in fact, has already jeopardized the country's pacifist stance as arms export has been considered as an important pillar of Japan's diplomacy, according to Shigeru Ishiba, secretary-general of Abe's ruling Liberal Democratic Party.
In his new book on collective self-defense right, Ishiba said arms export, among economic power and security capability, is a pillar of the country's diplomatic power.
Arms export by Japan could also trigger regional arms races and worsen regional disputes, analysts say.
As relations with its neighbors are frayed due to territorial disputes, Japan is seeking more military influence on the issues so as to show its tough stance, triggering vigilance from the neighboring countries on its moves.
South Korea, which is at odds with Japan on a pair of rocks in the Sea of Japan, on Tuesday called on Japan to have "the maximum level of transparency" in carrying out the new principles and guidelines on arms exports.
"As a pacifist nation, Japan is expected to adhere to basic principles and implement them into a direction of contributing peace and stability in the international community in a careful manner," said South Korean Foreign Ministry spokesman Cho Tai- young.
