Average and Typical.

This is a pretty typical Japanese movie. It is a loosely coordinated melee of vignettes surrounding a family that lives in a small village in the countryside. Like many typical Japanese films it is filled with absurdity, long quiet and slow sections, scenery, violence. What isn't in the film is the typical sex and/or naked bodies. If you prefer a movie with a plot, logic and denouement then yo... read more

"27.4.2013 The center of this new Japanese film is one family of father, mother, grandpa, daughter, son and uncle, portrayed by Tomokazu Miura, Satomi Tezuka, Tatsuya Gashuin, Maya Banno, Takahiro Sato and Tadanobu Asano. The mother is a manga artist, uncle is just somebody who is there occasionally telling strange stories, the daughter is constantly watched by her bigger self and the grandpa is just acting weird, and so on. It's that dysfunctional family once again. Best thing you can say about"

“This is a pretty typical Japanese movie. It is a loosely coordinated melee of vignettes surrounding a family that lives in a small village in the countryside.

If you prefer a movie with a plot, logic and denouement then you will find most Japanese movies unsatisfying. If you like those avant garde European movies, then these films might be a good fit for you. What I found particularly enjoyable in this movie was the scenery and the sweet relationships of the family. If you like this movie I would recommend "All About Lily Chou-Chou," "Linda, Linda, Linda" and "Kamikaze Girls." If you need a little more plot I r” read more
