Nothing happens
5 April 2018 | by euroasiangeneticSee all my reviews

In the decade of the 2000s, a lot of movies we suffering of the over the top amateurish experiment fever, very few movies manage to get away with it and felt exiting but most of them ended up in the trash can of time waster. Tokyo.Sora is no exception, it's over 2 hours of nothingness, despite great acting, the movie or video is low with director skill and DV camera quality, it feels like a student would have done this and didn't care what he filmed as long as he could make it over two hours plan.

The plot is about six women who live their daily lives in Tokyo, trying to make their dreams come true, but every day is the, the girl who dream of being a painter is going to painting school and has a love interest, a Chinese girl study Japanese and work as a painter model, a business woman is trying start on her own with her boyfriend, and library girl who wants to become an actress and make several failed audition, and two escorts who becomes friends, and that's it.

The plot I just told you sounds interesting, but how the movie is executed is not, it's filmed with a home video camera, one spot, and most of the time, the director film a wall for 5 minutes, yes just a wall for 5 minutes then cut to next scene, and when one scene ends it keep rolling for 5 minutes, it's like the director fell asleep on his own movie, and the sound is obviously filmed live, and poorly edited, because you can hear a bus driving while the scene is indoor, and sometimes you don't hear the dialogs at all, the only one good scene and that's when the two escorts show their daily life but that one is almost end of the movie and the movie is over two hours long.

I can't complain on the acting though, all girls are great and it's amazing that the famous swimsuit model Honjo Manami is in this movie and play an unattractive actress wannabe and that shows what a great actress she is, but she can't help the movie, it was made to literary waste time and I see no point watching it, if I wanna watch daily life people then I prefer a documentary.
