Sake-Bomb is a cocktail created by dropping a shot of sake into a pint of beer. It's also a comedic road movie about a sarcastic Asian American and his Japanese cousin. Sebastian is a bitter, self-deprecating wannabe Internet star from Los Angeles. He is recently dumped by his girlfriend and on the look out for someone new. When his cousin Naoto, a naive sake maker from Japan, shows up to find his own ex-girlfriend, Sebastian takes him to northern California to find her. They are a clash of cultures waiting to happen. Someone has to break first. Together they meet a colorful group of characters as they come to grips with who they are and the true nature of the girlfriends they're pursuing. Written by
I actually don't understand why pple wouldn't like this film unless they are too used to fancy best-seller book adaption scripts or big- budget CGI Hollywood style stuff.
This sweet indie film is a good blend of the subtlety of love portrayed in Asian films which provided a good contrast against the liberal freedom of American culture and outspokenness.
It may not be filled with visual awe or heart thumping rides, but it is a quietly sweet film in its own right. Most of all, all the lead actors put in amazing performances for a such a budget indie production.
To those who appreciate that true love in all its innocence of youth need not to spoken out loud and constantly reassured from one to the other, this is film-making at its purest and most sincere.
