I d watched several of these Japanese combo movies, but never appealed me to a point that I fell that I am watching a great thing; the perception is more like a cinema students projects or "demos". Not from the same pen and director came these four pieces that particularly have that odd Japanese stuff floating in the air; however, lack of that comedy intended. Short stories that do not have anything in common except the "sabi" thing in all the characters. First one is really poor with robotic gags that are no funny at all; the type of stuff that could work in silent cinema era do not expect to cut right now in modern times. The third one is the only story that really works; could be wrote by R Bradbury. The color; the panning, shots, etc are very good in all the stories. Y. Tamachika plays a good acting with her partner in the third story.
