In The Skies
22 September 2009 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This is a slow moving atmospheric film about love and relationships but not the conflicts that arise from them. The film is very subtle in its approach. At times it seems you're watching video wallpaper. The reason I am recommending it is that it has a beauty that I don't see often. The scenes are staged for maximum effect of the young ladies Yuki and Yoko and I found myself trying to anticipate their next movements (if indeed there were any). For anyone who wants a story that is obvious, this is not your film. The film appears to me to be about loneliness. That it is told so subtly is a testament to the director and its main two stars. There are a few moments where the movie particularly excels, such as the scene when Yuki and Yoko go running after drinking beer. Also, although its not a major part of this film, the mostly spare musical score is very effective. The city of Tokyo has a special resonance in parts of this film. What started as a film about young ladies trying to make their way became a film which got you to care about them. So, if you like art films this is particularly good.
