Achilles and the Tortoise is the last installment in a loose trilogy
actor/director Takeshi Kitano has made about the figure of the artist.
Whereas the first two entries, Takeshi's and Glory to the Filmmaker,
could basically be described as one big self-referential absurdist
joke, Achilles is a more controlled film, with a proper story and a
precise set of themes, albeit decorated with cheerfully absurd humor.
Such a scenario occurs right from the beginning, in an animated
prologue which explains the bizarre title: as pointed out by the
philosopher Zeno, if Achilles (the fastest mortal man, according to
Greek mythology) and a tortoise competed in a race, and the latter had
even the slightest advantage (say three feet), logic demands that in
the time required for Achilles to reach that point, the tortoise would
keep moving forward, and therefore the famous warrior, paradoxically
enough, would never be able to catch up with the notoriously slow
In Kitano's film, Achilles would be Machisu, a young boy fascinated by
art, and the tortoise is success. Despite the boy's determination and
occasionally bold choices of subjects (he has a knack for painting
macabre events), his lack of stylistic originality makes all galleries
shun him and most of his friends abandon him. Only his wife will keep
supporting him, even in his older days (at this point, Kitano himself
plays the role), when they're practically broke and their own daughter
is ashamed to live in the same house as them.
Kitano's passion for painting is quite well known among those familiar
with his work (he personally makes all the artwork that shows up in his
movies), and so Achilles and the Tortoise is a good opportunity for him
to use his hobby as a tool to reflect on the elusive subject of art and
its various ramifications. Naturally, he does this with his usual
penchant for darkly humorous set-ups, especially in the third act, with
some scenes so audacious it's doubtful even something like Six Feet
Under would have featured them. And yet one does not feel repulsed by
those scenes. On the contrary, it's the absurdity of the plot, paired
with Kitano's quietly composed directing and minimalistic performance,
that constitutes the movie's primary point of attraction. In fact,
Kitano's on-screen presence is so charismatic that perhaps he would
have been better off shortening the first section of the picture and
granting his quirky alter ego more room. Furthermore, the
straightforward "happy" ending feels completely at odds with everything
else, but then again coming up with a suitably crazy epilogue might
have proved too arduous a task.
Ultimately, the only thing that seriously damages a part of this
strange and, in its own way, funny opus is the running time (almost two
hours), with minor help from the somewhat off- beat conclusion.
Nevertheless, Kitano fans are likely to find something to embrace yet
again, and anyone with some kind of interest in art should take a good,
close look at this original take on the matter.
