Tom, an American 30 something that has recently moved to Tokyo for what he thinks is just a temporary gig, struggles with feelings of isolation in a land where he doesn't speak the language and all of his relationships play out online. He's self-absorbed and pretends to be a cooler version of himself on the 'net. Then he meets Saki, a free-spirited Japanese woman who teaches him about Tokyo and relating to others in a more personal way. She tries to help him live in the present and communicate with words, not text on a screen. Can he learn to relate to her, or is a make believe life on the web too tempting? Written by Peter Harmon

Cute little off-beat romance
20 June 2017 | by pyattimacSee all my reviews

I'm glad I stuck out the beginning of this film, as the early part of it left me irritated; fortunately, it gradually drew me in-- it was refreshing to see a Millenial get his nose up out of his phone and connect for real with a woman! What I liked best about the film was the sense of what it would be like to live in Tokyo; I spent a few days there, and loved it. The street scenes with the neon signs and dense crowding really captured the feel of the city. The cast came across as authentic, and I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers who panned the music-- it too seemed real and appropriate for the story. All in all, a pleasant surprise; give it a chance.
