Interesting idea, but not much fun to watch
12 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

*** May contain spoilers. ***

The USA cable TV title for this Japanese language film is DESERT MOON. DESERT MOON is about a successful high tech executive who is married. The executive is a careful planner who is the mastermind of his company's success. However successful he has built his work life, he is less than successful in his personal life. The executive employs a aging punk looking person to become involved with his wife. Things do not go as planned. The wife and daughter run to the country side and then something bad happens.

DESERT MOON is a dark drama. A bit slow and controlled. It was not my cup of rice.
