Sad Vacation

Sad Vacation (2007)

My Rating

Movie Info

A damaged man experiences a series of odd coincidences that send his life careening down a path he never anticipated in director/screenwriter Shinji Aoyama's semi-sequel to his critically acclaimed 2000 drama Eureka. When Kenji was just a young boy, his mother abandoned the family and his father committed suicide. These days Kenji (Tadanobu Asano) can't seem to hold down a regular job, instead choosing to work part time as a designated driver for tipsy bar hostesses and their randy clients.

Only those already won over by recent Shinji Aoyama will coddle to Sad Vacation, the prolific helmer's latest overlong, confused meditation on family and abandonment.

There's something willfully obscurantist about Sad Vacation, as if it is, first and foremost, a private joke between writer/director Shinji Aoyama and his performers.
