Storyline

A mockumentary about strange events which occurred in Tokyo one Autumn when hundreds of Japanese people claimed they had bizarre encounters with eccentric, three foot tall creatures. Through dozens of interviews Gureamu residents tell their stories and we slowly develop a picture of six small wooden men dressed in expensive suits, behaving with the characteristics of suave criminals and engaging in some kind of murky business in the immense economic capital. We discover that The Yamanunchi Bank was broken into, these little men were seen making a swift getaway in a helicopter and that the Japanese police and media are extremely guarded about the issue. Despite this official silence the creatures have become the stuff of whispers and urban legend in Gureamu - many now believing they were puppets from an old children's puppet theatre threatened with closure, pulling off a heist in a last ditch attempt to save their beloved home.

A surrealist piece of work
28 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Definitely one of the stranger films I have seen, and the weirdest from Graham Jones, this is basically a surrealist piece of work. If you are not put off by that or like me you revel in it, you are in for quite the roller-coaster ride.

The film is set in Tokyo, Japan and starts as a kind of detective story. It seems that people have been seeing strange things. They report little men, but dressed differently and culturally different from each other. It slowly becomes clear there were six little men or creatures or puppets who were up to no good in the local area.

The reason for all of this becomes clear and we get very sucked into the story. I thought it was excellent.
