Harmless trip into Japan's underworld
The setting of this Japanese drama is interesting: The Japanese sex industry. However, the story that unfolds left me rather disappointed. What is it supposed to be? A subtle drama? A satire? A lovestory? A little bit of everything, I guess, but that's one of the reasons the movie lacks focus. I liked how Atsushi tries to convince passerbys to join a sex production, I liked following the adventures of Atshushi and Mari into the seedy underworld, but nothing really paid off. Nothing really happened. Yes there are some gripping moments, mainly involving Atsushis disgusting boss, but it's not enough to keep me interested for two hours.

I'll admit that I'd love to see a little bit more sex in the movie to spice it up. Plus, Kana shouldn't have sleepwalked through the entire film. As it is now, it just didn't do it for me.

Rating: 5/10
