28 November 2011 | by (Japan) – See all my reviews

Fine, Totally Fine is a low-key movie about a slacker turning thirty and still dreaming of building the ultimate Haunted House attraction. That trope gives a few scares and laughs in the meandering narrative. Quirky, klutzy female Akari (Yoshino Kimura) comes along and creates a love triangle that resolves itself as a square. Little else happens. This is not so much a feel-good film as a feel-not-so-bad film. YosiYosi Arakawa, an acquired taste at the best of times, is given a rare leading role and holds up well, though mostly shows why he is highly regarded as a character actor. Yoshinori Okada as his erstwhile rival in love is more charismatic in a muted role. Yoshino Kimura as the sought after Akari hams it up in the way Japanese TV audiences love. Salarymen will swoon.

I saw this a couple of months ago, and while it was mildly entertaining, I forgot to review it. Doing so now, I realise I can hardly remember anything about the film. Which kind of says it all - fleeting, slight, inoffensive. Decent entertainment, but not much else.
