about this film
11 May 1999 | by (Kofu, Japan) – See all my reviews

This is the first film of director Masayuki Suo. This blue movie is a parody of famous "Tokyo Monogatari (Tokyo Story)"(directed by Ozu). In the film, Suo imitate the situation of story, camera work, emotional descriptions of it. This is highly evaluated not only in Japenese filmmakers but also in Asian filmmakers, as is cited in Tung-Shing Yee 's " Se qing nan nu (Viva Erotica)".
