He is a nerd. He is a wimp. He has no confidence and, despite thousands of tweets, is followed by three accounts on Twitter. Yes, he is not exactly the winning type and he knows it. Then things begin to change suddenly. Different women want to be with him, follow him, like him, kiss him and even, gasp, love him. He is 'Moteki.' Does his newfound status have legs?Written by
I usually like Japanese films and am fine with world cinema, but this one was disappointing.
It was unrealistic because if you see the 'man' there is no way anyone would be attracted to him. He is weak and into Twitter and other idiotic pastimes like gossip magazines and whatnot. He even let's his boss do the girl that wants him (the boss is one of those man whore 'men' only low self esteem women go with).
The other problem is that usually the women in Japanese films are attractive. These ones were all pretty ugly with short hair and as said one of them is spreading it for a man who is a man whore. Disgusting. I am not sure why the director chose only girls with short hair, but maybe his wife has short hair.
I cannot give it 1/10 however because the women are kinda cool and one has nice legs and mouth
There is no accounting for taste I guess.
