Review this movie
TSJan 10, 2005Too weird and unbelievable to be funny. The jokes (if any) were strained and directed to an audience that knew nothng about Japan, but felt they did on pretense. Sylvie Testud did a decent job on the language!
jackMar 19, 2005The movie has a theme that could be good (cross cultural confusion). It's supposed to be a satire, but the situations are brought to such an extreme that they become silly. One silly and unbelievable episode is piled upon another until it all becomes a tedious ordeal. Why in the world would a cultivated woman allow herself to be put into such demeaning and embarrassing positions rather than just quit the damn job? What's so funny about humiliation. Is this really supposed to be a study in masochism?… Expand
