wacky, unpredictable action; Japan and Third World through Japanese eyes.
28 May 2002 | by (alphaville) – See all my reviews

A lot of unexpected things happen in this movie about Japanese businessmen abroad in an imaginary southeast Asian country. The plot took many turns I didn't expect at all (I had thought it would be a sexy comedy!) and this made the movie engrossing. I was surprised how violent it was, in a wacky, cartoonish way. To a westerner it was fascinating to see how Japanese view themselves and how they view/stereotype Third World countries and people. It's a combination of the Bob Hope/Bing Crosby "Road to..." comedies with The Year of Living Dangerously, if you can picture this mix with Japanese actors and Japanese jokes. My biggest laugh came when the hero draws a little romantic sketch of his girlfriend in his appointment book--keep your eyes open for this tender moment.
