Absurdish Fun
11 July 2009 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This is a black comedy in the Japanese/British style about an unsuccessful model named Ayame (the pretty Riko Narumi) who unwittingly steals a girlie magazine she is in from a convenience store. The magazine has her in it but upside down and having the remnants of a squashed bug on her upper lip. As a sentence, she has to be police chief for a day (according to the person introducing the film at the Japan Society in New York where this film premiered, this actually happens). Her assistant is a former lover who is a serial killer. He once tried to kill her but she as well as the police are looking the other way about that. Also in the mix is Sakura Ando as Momo. In the span of one week I've seen her in three films, "Love Exposure", "Ain't No Tomorrows" and this one. She is remarkably versatile and should have a great career ahead of her, like the equally talented Ms. Narumi. Anyway, throw in a salaryman who witnesses a murder done by the serial killer and then gets hit by a truck, as well as a trio of hapless robbers with a taser gun and you have a comedy which is all over the place. Stay with it, though. If you don't like black comedy I think you should skip it, but otherwise it is recommended. Don't take it seriously and you'll be fine.
