Astonishingly Bad
12 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Amazing that someone can fill 2 hours with just sequence of meaningless images, but "Tokyo Koen" is one such movie.

Based on a novel by Yukiya Shoji ,the movie is about a photographer that takes pictures of families in the parks of Tokyo. He spots a pretty mother and an infant daughter one day in the park and takes her picture. Then a strange man reprimands him for his action, but the man, who turns out to be a dentist asks him to follow her around and keep tabs on her actions.

If this sounds like the beginning of an interesting story, you're wrong.

Haruma Miura usually puts in a good performance, but in this movie he's smothered by the poor acting of other actors, and poor directing of the director.

Manami Konishi who played the step sister of Koji was the only supporting cast that performed as a supporting cast should. What others did in this movie were just atrocious.

So there you have it. This is one of the worst movie to come out of Japan in recent years. It's just astonishing that this movie won a prize at the Locarno International Film Festival. But who's ever heard of Locarno International Film Festival anyways ?
