Movie Info

In this imaginative independent drama, Angela (Chloé Winkel) is a French art student living in Germany who loves to draw comics and creates elaborate tales drawn in a soft and romantic style. One night, Angela meets Yamamoto (Jon Yang), a club DJ from Japan, who invites her to come to Tokyo with him. Infatuated with Yamamoto, Angela impulsively agrees, and is soon sharing an apartment with a handful of Western expatriates who work at a nightclub where Japanese businessmen drink, sing karaoke, and date the "hostesses" for a fee. When money runs low, Angela signs on to work at the club, but when a customer is murdered in an ongoing mob war, she realizes she's entered a far more dangerous world than she imagined. The frantic pace of the city and the violence of her new environment has a strong impact on her artwork, which loses its serene qualities and becomes increasingly aggressive and mechanical. The Stratosphere Girl was written and directed by German filmmaker M.X. Oberg, who shot the film on location in Cologne and Tokyo. ~ Mark Deming, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Stratosphere Girl

½

I guess im the first guy to review this film on flixster/facebook but it doesn't matter. I highly enjoyed this film and how it was filmed. It was mainly because it was filmed in Tokyo, Japan. The main character was great. Innocent and intriguing. I really liked the way how she used little quotes that had relevance towards the movie. Also, she refered her self as some type of heroin because she was trying to find a woman who happen to be missing in the police records throughout her journey. Because she comes from a different country, I assume this is why she is called the stratosphere girl.

The way it was shot was beautiful. Showed many places of tokyo. Estimated ratio is : 1.83:1

I liked the style of this film and the story was intriguing. A little slow but not boring.
