A Stranger of Mine - Winner of the Golden Sushi Maki!
A Stranger of Mine meet 'the' Japanese in a nutshell. A wannabe-tough Yakuza, a girl feeling sorry for herself, a hopeless bachelor, a disillusioned private detective and a pretty, misbehaving girl all get mixed up in an entertaining story. Some try to save a friend; others their face, some are looking for love; others for fast money. A Stranger of Mine is an intelligently arranged movie, giving away just enough so the audience will be able to laugh once again seeing scenes a second time from a different angle. Get déjà-vu-ed! The picture's, realization, photography, actors and soundtrack make it my over-all festival winner i Oslo. It gets the Golden Sushi Maki!
