absolutely unique, outrageously funny, brilliant!!!
2 February 2009 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

I saw "Koi no mon" at a film festival in Geneva, Switzerland, with my mother and a friend of mine; there are almost no words to describe the impression that this film made on us!!! Let's say that we were almost breathless from non-stop laughing and admiration: this film really rocks!!! At the beginning of the film, I was thinking (because I knew that it would last 114 minutes) : is it possible to maintain the same pace for such a long time without boring the viewer? I wasn't expecting such a performance from the director, but he really did it!!! Until the very end of the film, the three of us were totally filled with non-stop enjoyment. Besides, I have to say, without spoiling anything, because it would really be a shame for a future viewer, that 'Koi no mon', although some of its aspects (the depiction of some characters or certain situations) might seem a little bit 'over-the-top', is really far from being stupid; the humour is in fact quite cleverly conveyed, never considering the viewer a fool: there are many different issues explored, all of them in an original, absolutely unique way, making 'Koi no mon' a truly original and completely unpredictable gem.I would also like to add, and I think that many people would agree with me on this point, that it is in fact very difficult to make a very good comedy: most of them are somehow 'formatted' in a way or another, which makes them somehow 'cliché'.There is nothing like this here; you go from one surprise to another. I never gave a 10 to a comedy, this is the first time today, but this one really deserves it.Finally, i would really like to say: Bravo, Mr Matsuo, you have really made a true masterpiece, which will remain in my heart forever!!!
