Can love lead to anything else but a conformist relationship?
7 July 2000 | by (Bxl, Belgium) – See all my reviews

The filmmaker asks if it's unavoidable for young people who are in love to become a couple, to live together and eventually become a family. Oinaru Genei is made of little pieces from the lives of the two main characters, a young man who's a music producer and a girl who works at a postal office. It seems they don't want to move on in their relationship, don't want to grow up.

Director Kiyoshi Kurosawa explores the human condition in the post millennium. With the aid of his students from the film school of Tokyo, he creates an experimental and unusual love story.
