Not quite your average Miike movie
7 December 2005 | by djoresSee all my reviews

More than any other Miike movie, suspended disbelief is an absolute prerequisite for watching this Sci-Fi soap opera / J-Pop video. Cuteness, chrome, and special FX ooze from the screen on every stage of the bubble-gum tale of "love conquers all" with the over-the-top melodramatic absurdity of a sakura tree blossoming in the middle of a beach. In the words of one of the characters in his ultimate Jesus/Oedipus moment of surrender to his own fate: "This is ironic. At the very last moment I finally learn of that man's true motives." Ironically Miike's viewers can't say the same, which most likely, is his true motive.

Recommended only to fans of both Miike AND J-Pop.
