Just flipping through the channels and found this....
9 August 2004 | by echang1988See all my reviews

I managed to find this short film while flipping through the channels and stopped at KCET.... at first I wasn't sure what to expect but I found myself involved within the plot...I do admit that often i groan at conversations in student films and I usually avoid them but perhaps since it was in Japanese, I continued watching. And well, it surprised me....despite a few odd questions I had and petty details, I was impressed enough to jump on the internet to find out more about this guy.

If you managed to find it on TV or at a festival, it's worth your time.....and hey, it'll be better than watching COPS or Elimin-date.
