Quotes

Kenji: [about the book by Balzac] What's it about?
Balzac Man: A young man, ambitious, goes to Paris, try to make it there. But why do you ask me what it's about when I'm in the midst of reading it?
Kenji: Oh, yeah, right. It's just like watching movie; while you're watching it you cannot tell yet.
Balzac Man: Just like life itself. You can't know about it until you've lived it all.

experimental
7 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

Kenji (Takeshi Kaneshiro) is a Japanese guy living in New York. He spends his days at a local coffee shop. He encounters his mysterious dream girl (Mira Sorvino). She is death and she reveals that he has twelve hours to live.

This is an experimental indie. There is some surrealism but it struck me as fake unreality. One thing that doesn't help is the guy's heavy accent. It actually grew to annoy me. The acting ranges from amateurish to some recognizable veterans like Jeffrey Wright, Michael Imperioli, and Ben Gazzara. This is strictly indie time. It would help to have some better cinematic style. Newbie director Wonsuk Chin tries a few moves but they come off looking amateurish.
