4.0 out of 5 stars (1) IMDb 5.4/10

Japanese existential comedy directed by Sogo Ishii and starring an assortment of newcomers . With a host of characters including a doctor, two best friends, a college Urban Myth Club, a mother searching for her son and a reality TV star, this film plays out on many levels but what all the narratives seem to have in common is that the characters begin to die off as they go about their daily routines...

Format: DVD
I find it difficult to suggest that everyone watch a film that many will find exasperating and empty of many of the dramatic facets of what many see as a film. Even the settings fail to progress from the University and University Hospital on the rural edge of the city. If the place becomes almost a stage is not a mere play: indeed it plays with images and set-ups of other Japanese films: or is that my imagination? It gives a space to think and feel. about what you want at least. I am not sure this play tells you anything about how to take the unfolding events: in that it it may in fact shock. It seems almost as mundane as life at times, and gives us time to be in ourselves as well as watching the film.

One group of users who should definitely get something from the film are language learners: you will follow a lot of the Japanese here easier than a huge number of genre pieces and yhet it is relevant to young and informal uses. But it is not as stiff as your language materials, don't worry! Goood but it's really up to you what you take from it...
