A Masterpiece of Puzzling Drama
18 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is surely one of the greatest movies i've ever seen in the genre. Some people will say 2h30 for a movie it's to much, but this movie is one of the few that proves that a long movie, can be miles away from boredom. Through ''Noriko's Dinner Table'', i found myself so involved, so carried away and, almost a part of it, so puzzled and at the same time so aware of the most simplistic truths that seems to be shot away on our faces through out the puzzling scenes and narrations ,in such a raw human way/society raw in review, that i completely lost track of time. This movie covers, geniusly, the human longing for feelings, knowledge and experiences, for the break of the apathy covering the world, the family as a tieing experience, the needs of pretending to fulfill ourselves, the ''mysterys'' behind the ''suicide clubs'' and the strong emotions behind all these themes and even so much more, glimpsed in the tiniest of the details with such an art. I Highly recommend that everyone should see this movie, It's an amazing experience to the fullest deeper inner selves and the world around us.
