Based on Amélie Nothomb's love affair with Rinri Mizuno when she was living Japan in her early twenties. Although the real-life events took place in the early 1990s, the director set the film in the early 2010s. The real-life events narrated in Tokyo Fiancée took place at the same time than those narrated in Fear and Trembling (2003). See more »

Stop it. Stop knocking this film down. It is not Blade Runner, but it is NOT as awful as reviewers are pretending it to be either.
Firstly, it is in Japan so has an exotic feel and nice nature and cityscape scenery.
Secondly, the Belgian girl disrobes and it is satisfying. There is flaunting and glorious flesh.
Thirdly, yeah she is not Jennifer Lawrence but she flaunts more than a lack of hair so come on let us be fair.
Fourthly, you have to laugh at the mystery and demeanor of the boy's parents. It IS funny.
All in all, 5/10 and far from 1/10.
