Movie Info

Veteran indie filmmaker Sogo Ishii spins this dream-like pulpy yarn about death and buses. Tomiko Tomonari (Rena Komine) works as a bus conductress, and though she gets to wear a spiffy uniform, she is thoroughly bored with her job and her life. One day, a new bus driver named Tatsuo Niitaka (Tadanobu Asano) starts working at her company. Mysterious, moody, and silent, he has garnered the notice of almost all the women in the company -- but Tomiko has a particular interest in him. Tomiko's best friend was once engaged to Niikata, before she died in an accident while he was at the wheel. Even more unnerving, her best friend sent her a letter before she died, talking much about death at the hands of her lover. Instead of going to the police, Tomiko purposefully falls for the guy. This, she tells herself, is the adventure she as been looking for. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovimore

Audience Reviews for Yume no ginga (Labyrinth of Dreams)

Modern black and white Japanese drama about a bus conductoress, who suspects her new bus-driver partner is actually the serial-bus-conductoress-murdering-ex-fiance of her best friend. Phew.
Interesting story with a slow pace that includes an awful lot of his-and-her staring contests.
