Just about as minor as it can be
1 August 2012 | by See all my reviews

What a strange movie this is. Three vagrants on their way from cave expedition meets an alien golden child. The child tells them they must go to India to save the world. But they need to make one million yen for the travel expense to go to India. They embark on various venture to make money but it's a tall order for ones who've never had steady jobs before.

The movie was released in 2006, but it was actually made in 2002. The movie was made 10 years after the economic collapse of Japan, and the mood of the people are reflected in the story.

There's not a single normal person in this story, and everyone seem to have gave up on the society. Still they push on, trying to hang on to their lives.

This is the directorial debut for director Satoshi Miki, although it's not the first movie to be released due to it's delayed release. Miki has been producing and directing TV programs, and stage plays.
