Disappointing
15 February 2009 | by (Tokyo / Toronto) – See all my reviews

A very disappointing movie, I absolutely did not connect with the protagonist or any other characters in the film. In fact, there seemed to be minimal contact between the two main characters, and Tsutsumi Shininchi's character provided almost no purpose. Maiko, while seeming to fit the beautiful girl from Tokyo very well, practically read the script and acted very poorly.

Another thing that bothered me was how the blind masseuses were portrayed as such creepy, almost inhuman creatures. It was quite disturbing to watch, and I didn't find it to be cool or funny.

Cinematography, especially of rivers, were very beautiful, but the overall story, acting, and direction were very poor.
