"Empty": Matsushige Toyotomi, a lonely foodie, began to write
Know Matsushige Toyotomi, is in the Japanese drama late night canteen, he played a gangster big brother, silent and serious, but a little kind inside, and then watched the lonely foodie, he is the main actor, this series has also become the best TV series of food, I can't imagine today actually see the book he wrote, culture, it is really impressive.
"Empty" is Matsushige's first book, and he writes that "I" went to Kyoto to shoot a film, and after falling into a bottleneck, I began to consider changing careers. Walking through Kyoto in the rain, encountering the Buddha statue of Hirutakaji Temple and the mysterious old man, opening the "I" thinking, what is the real actor? What is the acting that really touches people's hearts? In the dazzling scene transformation, the rich and turbulent inner scenery of "I" is presented.
From this point of view, Matsushigeto's writing is not bad, before the age of forty, Matsushigeto experienced a period of depression. At that time, he was filming between Kyoto and Osaka, and could not return to his home in Tokyo. In times of pain and confusion, he often sat in front of the Maitreya Buddha statue at Guanglong Temple for four or five hours, completely emptying himself and gaining comfort and enlightenment.
He began to develop an interest in Buddhism. The story of the Buddha statue in the prologue of the novel stems from this personal experience. With the help of the image of the hollow Buddha in the middle, he expresses his personal understanding of "emptiness.". He believes that the ideal state of the actor is an "empty" container, and each role played is the process of putting the role into the container.
From the perspective of a bystander, the author examines the actor's excess self-awareness. In his opinion, the actor always looks at things around him in a self-centered way, thinking that everyone around him is paying attention to himself. This self-awareness, which seems to be taken for granted, is questionable. In the real situation, it is just a humble human supporting role. Recognizing this is important for many actors.
