Absurd Sex "Comedy" Devoid Of Heroes
4 July 2010 | by crossbow0106See all my reviews

This film, based on a Manga, is a truly bizarre comedy about a twenty year old man Tanishi (Kazunobo Mineta) who delivers novelty toys to shops in Akihabara in Tokyo. Rather than be in a serious relationship, he both pleasures himself and turns to prostitutes. At his job, Chiharu (Mei Kurokawa) shows a unrealistic interest in him and they go out. Before that, he mistakenly gives her a DVD of beastiality porn to watch. They go out and end up in a love hotel, but don't consummate the relationship. The next thing that happens is he ends up caught in the closet of Chiharu's next door neighbor Shijo. He tries to explain at a wedding reception (by saying it in a microphone), but she hates him now. He "lends" her to Aoyama, who works for a rival novelty company. Othedr things happen, but this film, a dark sex comedy, just didn't justify my watching it. Its almost impossible to like anyone in this film, everyone is so self-centered and/or arrogant. If this is the point, I did get it, but the film is too long at 114 minutes and the comedy in it, along with being unabashedly vulgar, is creepy. I wanted to like this, but instead feel I can't recommend it, since I didn't like anyone in the film. Noce try, I suppose, but its just not worth your time.
