The Kanahawa great wave, in motion (or Hifana “Wamono” anime)

by brian lam

Ebert finds this video of a less moody, more spritely, but no less salty animation of the sea based on the woodblock print “The Great Wave off Kanahawa”, above.

No one I talk to about this video knows what’s going on. I just like that big fish with the rave going on in its belly. I think i’d like to visit islands in southern Japan some day.
