This is certainly a worthwhile, if somewhat eccentric, discourse within the Japanese cine scene. A true walkathon through various parts of Tokyo, the two likable oddballs who inhabit this picture certainly grow on you as you accompany them in their perambulations through Tokyo.
The two principal characters in this affair seem to have just about nothing in common except their own particular weirdness, the one being co-opted by the other into taking a very extended stroll over various days through different parts of Tokyo.
Although it is not story driven, it nevertheless captures your attention by means of the two main characters, (a loan shark collector and his victim), and the very natural way they interact with each other and the constant change of neighbourhood that drifts through the whole film.
It is a finely nuanced film, and very well acted. It's also quite original in concept with a very restrained, unobtrusive style of direction. On the other hand, when all is said and done, it doesn't amount to all that much, and perhaps deserves 3 1/2 stars rather than 4. Still, as it's no doubt a quality product, I have erred on the side of generosity and given it 4 stars.
