Inquisitive Me!

What, how, when, why, who and where influence me a lot!

Had an opportunity to watch this movie Yamakasi-Les samouraïs des temps modernes, meaning, Yamakasi, the samurai(s) of the modern times. Thanks to the little bit of French that I've been learning so far.
The plot of this movie is pretty simple, am not elaborating it here, since I am not sure about the nuances to be kept in mind while writing a review for a movie. So who do you think are these Yamakasi? They are basically French practitioners who practise acrobatics. So how different is this from Parkour or Free running? The aim of Yamakasi is to reach point B from point A aesthetically providing complete freedom of movement. What Parkour does is, it focuses on how efficiently you can reach point B from point A. (Pretty much similar to a TSP!).

About the word origin, it sounded very Japanese, apparently it's a word from Lingala meaning strong spirit,strong energy.

Feel drained out? I would definitely suggest this movie! The music + the tactics + good dialogues (I watched it in French!)make this a wonderful movie to watch!!!! It truly lives up to its name...HIGH ENERGY.

So isn't it time that you aesthetically plunge into this?
