Storyline

Keisuke, an aspiring samurai-movie actor lands a major role in a new film, but must contend with a director who has nothing but scorn for him, but who continually fawns over the film's obnoxious ham of a star. Meanwhile, Keisuke has been dumped by his girlfriend, Eri, after she becomes heartbroken when he considers working full-time as a bar manager rather than pursuing his dream. Through her job as a translator, she meets an Italian professor who claims to talk to trees, and who immediately starts trying to woo her. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The Japanese Environment
10 October 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film seems to be a kind of love affair with certain aspects of Japanese culture, with a prominent environmental theme thrown in. There are also recurring vignettes about the shooting of a samurai film, an American guy meeting the stunning Eri (Akiko Monou) who is dumb (cannot speak). Some of this film is lush and beautiful, some parts are just stunningly photographed. While the characters are strangely interwoven, its still an interesting though non-mainstream film. There are the obligatory scenes with trains and a little bit of madness, which turned out to be funny. One of the things I liked about this film was its central message, about being part of the world. Not for mainstream viewers, be a little adventurous and watch it. I liked it.
