Quotes

Kenji: [about the book by Balzac] What's it about?
Balzac Man: A young man, ambitious, goes to Paris, try to make it there. But why do you ask me what it's about when I'm in the midst of reading it?
Kenji: Oh, yeah, right. It's just like watching movie; while you're watching it you cannot tell yet.
Balzac Man: Just like life itself. You can't know about it until you've lived it all.
Fabrizio: Just like hard-on, you know. You don't know what it feel like until you had one.
Balzac Man: That's irrelevant.

A sly, funny film with disturbing undertones
8 February 1999 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The aimless protagonist is an all too believable character, and therefore there is considerable empathy for him, even when his behavior is not justifiable. This film really gave me something to think about; how many people would do better than Kenji if given 24 hours to put their life in order? In traditional Hollywood, everything would miraculously work out fine, but of course Wonsuk Chin knows better than that. This is a case where I think a bitter flavor is better than sweetness. Not all of the loosely-linked scenes work, and Sorvino can grate at times, but on the whole the movie is very much worth seeing. The opening is wonderful.
