4.0 out of 5 stars Deceptive Film, 20 Oct 2013
By 
Rob Simpson "noframeof" (Middlesbrough, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: See You Tomorrow, Everyone [DVD] (DVD)
Deceptive film, See you tomorrow Everyone. On the one hand, it's everything you'd expect from the director of Fish Story. It falls well within the cute spectrum of Japanese cinema, and it has Gaku Hamada doing what he does best. Throughout the first hour its a hard film to sympathise with as the whole idea of being averse to change is taken to its natural extremity with the leads refusal to leave the projects. All with no explanation. It is also structured in a deeply episodic way. Jumping from year to year, scene to scene. There is no real allowance to get lost in the story. Then at the hour mark, the reasoning behind the Hamada's flat out refusal comes out, and the entire complexion of the film changes. It ends with a similar dichotomy - its a good emotional resolution, but it comes from a difficult life event. A surprising film, that is held back by a structure that would be better realised in a Tv Series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational and Moving Japanese Rites of Passage Film., 21 Dec 2013

This review is from: See You Tomorrow, Everyone [DVD] (DVD)
This is the latest from director Yoshihiro Nakamura who brought us the rather splendid `Fish Story' and it is much appreciated that more of his beautifully original films are getting releases over here. This tells the story of Satoru played with perfect precision and understanding by Gaku Hamada who also featured in `Fish Story'. He decides to drop out of school, after graduating from elementary school. He then decides to never leave `the project' - the social housing estate in which he has lived his whole life.

He has a preoccupation with keeping fit and self defence as well as a compulsion to do patrols of the estate to ensure all his friends and neighbours are safe. Well his friends go to High School and he plods on hoping to land a job at the only cake shop on the estate. What follows is his story and we slowly find out more and more as the story gently unfolds. His life mirrors that of Japan's in many ways as he learns to deal with everything that is thrown at him, but in his own way, from love, work, loss and violence.

I really loved this film, Satoru is one of those characters that is so adorable that you just never want him to fail or be hurt and as such I was totally drawn into every moment of this two hour offering. There is a theme running through the film that document how many of his `class' from school leave the project and at one time it is said `like petals blown in a storm; farewells are a fact of life'. This is one of those films that takes you by surprise and you feel all the more grateful for it, I hope we get to see more from the rather wonderful Mr Nakamura very soon - absolutely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unllikely but loveable hero, 20 Mar 2014
This review is from: See You Tomorrow, Everyone (DVD)
I reached for the eject button as soon as the director came on to introduce his own film - I really hate that - but I'm glad I didn't do it. There are times you have to work hard to stick with it but it really is worth it in the end. A delightful tale that plays with you mind and emotions until the story gradually unfolds what it's all about but by that time the lead character has got you hooked and you have to stick with it to the end. Multi-layered? Multi-faceted? Another find example of the director's art? Who cares? It's just a great little movie.
