From what I was able to decipher, this is a movie that shows how two totally different people can be brought together when both are on the "outside" looking in (Such as being in Japan for a few weeks) . This is not a plot... it is a "theme", and the movie stops there. Where is the charm? Drama? Comedy.... Anything? We see people going to parties and then talking. I saw this first-hand, I called it "college", but at least at college we had the dumb drunks to laugh at!
At first I thought it was just me, maybe I was the one missing something. I decided to ask some of my friends about what they thought- and with very little excetion, they all hated it. Case closed.
So let me break it down for you- if you are looking for a slap stick comedy (Like "Caddyshack") rent something else. If you want an important, but painfully boring movie, about two souls finding each and then doing a lot of talking... you may have found a gem!
