This film is a leap into a voyeuristic world, set in Tokyo. Filmed in a documentary style (some of this had to be ad libbed, its too confessional), this is about some young people and how they live their lives. It revolves around a web show, originally just of people-legs mostly-walking in Shibuya, in the city of Tokyo. The young man keeps a camera there and films them, as well as others in their apartment. Then, a young lady named Moe, who dresses in the "Gothic Lolita" style (look at the two words together and you may understand the look, or see the movie "Kamikaze Girls") meets him and becomes part of this. The film is actually good, in that it paints a picture of some young people who are truly unhappy with their lives, people who just don't fit the norm. On that level, the film works admirably. Not perfect, since there are some moments that are not that interesting, but it is an intermittently fascinating film about the fringe of youth culture. On that level, it succeeds admirably.
