Slow, Totally Slow...
2 May 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Fine, Totally Fine" was a rather disappointment of a movie. I had read lots of nice reviews about it, so I decided to buy it from Amazon. And now having sat through it, I feel somewhat disillusioned.

The story in "Fine, Totally Fine" moves forward at an amazingly slow pace. The story takes forever to get nowhere. And that is a such a drag to sit through. Sure the story had some interesting moments, but wow, it was just unbearable to sit through. The story is about being human, about being somewhat different in the world and trying to fit in.

Now, what worked in the movie was the quirky characters. Each of the different characters in "Fine, Totally Fine" were really odd in some way - some major, some minor. And the people they had cast to portray these odd people did a really great job, and that was what kept me sitting through this movie. It was really nice to see these odd people brought to life on the screen, despite the movie was painstakingly slow in progressing.

For a Japanese movie of this type, then "Fine, Totally Fine" could have been much, much better - sad to say. Sure, this is a beautiful movie in its own rights, but I just think that I wasn't the particular target audience that the director had in mind when they made this movie. Despite the quirky and lovable characters, then "Fine, Totally Fine" is not a DVD that I will be putting into the DVD player a second time. It was just too slow a movie.

I am a big fan of Asian cinema, and "Fine, Totally Fine" wasn't amongst the enjoyable movies in my particular liking.
