Help in the Wind

Saturday, September 22nd, 2007

In The Karate Kid II‘s storm scene, the word tasukete (the imperitive form of tasukeru, and meaning “save me” or “help me”) comes up multiple times. The first is about 01:33:30 into the film with the older woman and her children. The second is at roughly 01:35:50, with the young girl at the bell tower.
