A Fun (Japanese) Family Film

Is that FFF? Well it is FJFF... It is funny, curious and offers scenes from both Japan and California. Good actresses.

The STory Of A Horny Japanese Woman

Correction: the story of two horny Japanese women who duke it out for a real man and both come out bruised and battered. Ultimately, they have to settle and the story ends not in a triumph, but a whimper. This film is written from the perspective of a western man. Sorry.

Search Across an Ocean, and Further Within

Tokyo train station, overcast skies and a shout of "good bye" as a man jumps on the tracks in front of a train. Setsuko witnesses the suicide on the way to the office and her dull routine. She is middle-aged, lonely and unhappy. Perhaps she could snap like this. When Setsuko receives an invitation from her niece Mika to attend advanced English lessons, the classes provide unexpected light and warmth in her life. John, the foreign teacher, loosens Setsuko up with hugs, humor, role-play and a new nickname; Lucy. However, just as suddenly as John releases Setsuko from her funk, he disappears. Setsuko goes in search of him across an ocean, and goes even farther within herself. Combining humor with seriousness and sincerity, the film reveals the wonders of what travel can do. It takes us outside ourselves and reveals truths that would not have been revealed if we stayed in our bubbles. It shows us our strengths and weaknesses, the good and bad. The film also shows that the difference between Japan and America goes beyond language. The Japanese are generally not as outgoing as Americans. There is not much in the way of touching or hugs. The Japanese are good at wearing masks. People like Setsuko go unnoticed and suicide is a big problem. It is wonderful that the director is giving a voice to those like Setsuko. While the transitions between scenes are a little funky and the story could use development in places, it is a charming and interesting story. The actors are experienced and adept at their roles. Seen at the Toronto International Film Festival.
