Thanks to Arthouse Films and Madman Entertainment we have 5 copies of CUTIE AND THE BOXER to giveaway (5 DVDS).
A reflection on love, sacrifice, and the creative spirit, this candid New York story explores the chaotic 40-year marriage of renowned “boxing” painter Ushio Shinohara and his artist wife, Noriko.
As a rowdy, confrontational young artist in Tokyo, Ushio seemed destined for fame, but met with little commercial success after he moved to New York City in 1969, seeking international recognition. When 19-year-old Noriko moved to New York to study art, she fell in love with Ushio—abandoning her education to become the wife and assistant to an unruly, alcoholic husband. Over the course of their marriage, the roles have shifted. Now 80, Ushio
struggles to establish his artistic legacy, while Noriko is at last being recognised for her own art—a series of drawings entitled “Cutie,” depicting her challenging past with Ushio. Spanning four decades, CUTIE AND THE BOXER is a moving portrait of a couple wrestling with the eternal themes of sacrifice, disappointment and aging, against a background of lives dedicated to art.
How do you win?
