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>

Smart, Beautiful and Funny
22 May 2003 | by (Wakayama, Japan) – See all my reviews

This film was pretty popular when it came out in Japan, combining stunning visuals, a hip score and popular actors and comedians.

Primarily a romance, Stereo Future also injects environmental commentary and comedy into the storyline to make this a hyperkinetic, eclectic film.

Some of the comedic lines are poorly translated, and so come across fairly flat. At other times, the film features spoofs of Japanese pop culture and film, as well as cameos from popular actors, musicians, etc. It may be difficult for someone who does not understand Japan well to appreciate this film to the fullest, but all in all a beautiful and funny story.
