Slow paced love triangle
29 December 2003 | by See all my reviews



An average 30-something bank worker, content with her modest and highly routine life, accepts, and then later abruptly rejects, the love of a confident high-powered businessman who would upgrade her lifestyle. Not alone for long, she soon connects with a slightly lost, insecure, younger neighbor, who is learning to play electric guitar and who sometimes plays hookie from his low-level job at a courier service. UNLOVED explores the motivations of all three members of this modern-day Japanese love triangle.

I found UNLOVED to be slow and stoic. It reminded me of the artsy French drama films of the late 1960's. Although I really enjoyed the first 30 minutes, I can't recommend the movie as a whole.
