Naval gazing in Tokyo
3 November 2013 | by (Saigon, Vietnam) – See all my reviews

Young Japanese girl and her boyfriend talk the night away about loneliness, mild depression, money and hopes and dreams.

This is an interesting experience, the movie seems more suited to a modern art museum then a cinema. The narrative so to speak is centered around a conversation the lead characters are having in a darkened room, this is presented through voice over and then there are visuals interspersed of Tokyo, all of the tropes of Japan are shown: subway lines, Shibuya, kinetic lighting, neon drab, empty alley ways. This is all very well shot, and adds an eloquent beauty to this movie.

The central theme of loneliness and isolation is handled well, and there are points in this movie where we feel a connect with the dialogue. As someone who is currently living in Tokyo I can sympathise with the sense of bewilderment and isolation that this movie brings to the forefront, and I do applaud the director and the team for making quite a bold movie.

The appeal of this movie lies in its honesty and sincerity, there is a genuine sense that the dialogue comes from a honest source, and I can see that the movie is an allegory of many a Tokyo-dwellers internal monologue. However my main disconnect with this movie is that it is too dense with pithy dialogue and that what it attempts to do in 70 mins could have been achieved in 25.

Many a cinematic nod to David Lynch, Wong Kai Wai, Jean Luc Goddard and perhaps even Terrence Mallick. Yet very unfulfilling and too easily forgettable once the credits role. Nonetheless, will appeal to a certain demographic and should be applauded for it's style.
