Storyline

A freelance writer (Iseya Yusuke) is given a bizarre assignment by the sexy editor of "Black Book Monthly" (Mizuno Miki): find a bug with the power to bring humans back from the dead, in order to report on the afterlife. With his trusty companion Endo (Matsuo Suzuki) in tow, he sets off on a quest for the elusive insect and along the way meets the mysterious Sayoko (Kikuchi), a former dominatrix and habitual wrist-cutter who delights in rubbing wasabi into her wounds.

The Japanese Equivalent of Epic Movie
19 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is completely idiotic, unfunny trash. The humor in it caters to a five year old's sensibilities at best. I chuckled twice, maybe, but the rest of the time I was rolling my eyes and cursing at the relentless stupidity on screen. I can't believe I made it all the way through the movie, but I forced myself to because I have a bizarre compulsion to finish movies I've started, provided I've rented them and not just tuned into them on TV, and I had indeed (unfortunately) rented it for a whole 80 yen. The only reason I rented it in the first place was that it was one of the only Japanese movies there that had English subtitles; had I had any idea of how bad it was going to be, I would have left it on the shelf, or paid not to be burdened with it.

An example of the humor you can expect to find throughout the movie: in the opening scene, the female boss of this magazine is yelling at the main character, a journalist, and giving him an assignment he doesn't want to do. Then she farts really loud. And goes, "Oops, that was me...Oops, I may have made a mess. I'm going to go clean up. I'll be back."

That's about as highbrow as it got.
