Charming and quirky in that inimitable Japanese way
9 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Seaside Motel is trapped in the mountains, without even enough water to serve their guests 24 hours a day, much less having a view of a body of water of any kind.

The plot centers on the misadventures of the occupants of four rooms at the dirty, run down motel over the course of one very eventful night. A cheerful hooker accidentally calls on the wrong room and wins the heart of a young cosmetics salesman. A wealthy married couple, middle aged man and pretty young wife, suffer from his erectile dysfunction and go about solving the problem in the wrong ways. A man deceives his bar hostess date, who happens to be a germ freak, and, finally, a gambler in debt to the Yakuza and his girlfriend, with endless and annoying questions, receive a visit from Yakuza bill collectors.

What the Japanese filmmakers can do better than almost anyone else is give Fate a "last chance" workout a la The Biggest Loser. While not as funny, in my opinion, as Survive Style 5, Seaside Motel manipulates the fates of the various room occupants to collide in similar fashion.

Overall, I found it a fun movie to distract me from other concerns.
