Rana vs. Nozomi, 8 October 2004
Author: Meganeguard from Kansas

This movie starts off simple enough with Nozomi returning home from an audition. She goes on to have a bit of inner dialogue in which she informs the viewer that one is considered to be in the top forty percent of humanity if one has the basic necessities of life: food, clothing, and shelter. Nozomi, however, does not consider herself to be in this top forty percent because she is a rural girl from Sadoshima living in Tokyo. One is taken back by this statement at first because Nozomi lives in a large 2ldk apartment building.

Nozomi soon falls asleep, but is soon awoken by her room mate's knocking at the door. Nozomi lets Rana into the apartment and it is obvious these two girls who are living together not out of choice, but because their boss has placed them in the same apartment. While not openly rude to each other, Nozomi and Rana's dialogue is quite threadbare and they seem to be determined to one up the other. Did I mention that both women are trying out for the same role?

Tension mounts between the two women and their inner dialogue is quite entertaining. It is obvious the materialistic, brown sugar haired Rana, with her questionable background in the movie business and the plainer, Waseda university attending Nozomi dislike each other, but as additional fuel is put to the fire a conflagration begins to burn without control.

while not a masterpiece by any means, _2LDK_ is a fascinating film which I wish that this film had been released with its partner Kitamura Ryuhei's film _Aragami_, but at least we have this one.
