Japanese mirror
18 June 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

A compile of five Japanese short films with one common point: let's imagine what Japan could be in a decade. The dystopian atmosphere is freely inspired by the excellent series Black Mirror (2011) available on Netflix. I globally appreciated the five opuses, especially the first one (Plan 75) and the third one (Data), even if the compile globally lacks of inventiveness.
