Critic Reviews for zenzen daijobu (Fine, Totally Fine)
Fujita adopts a dry, observational style reminiscent of Jacques Tati or Roy Andersson, making the madcap incidents and whimsical idiosyncrasies in his sketches seem all the funnier for being kept at such a cool distance
This laconic artificially quirky debut from Japanese writer-director Fujita Yosuke settles for a rudimentary comic inspection of the dreary existence of a clutch of twentysomethings forced to reject their aspirations in order to face up to adult realities
A charming and funny tale of a bunch of sadsack losers piecing their lives together, Fine, Totally Fine combines slapstick and poignancy to create a gently beguiling romantic comedy.
Picturesque in a slightly exaggerated, highly coloured comic-book style, the film is a little undercooked in terms of character and unpersuasive in its narrative. It's all quirks but no content of significance.
The sweetness and good nature of this film won me over, after a slowish start. The leftfield vignettes and eccentric dialogue make for a taste that didn't take me long to acquire - and Arakawa in particular is a winning performer, in his goofy way.
Audience Reviews for zenzen daijobu (Fine, Totally Fine)
Cute Japanese film. Story is a bit slight, but still enjoyable and amusing and I really liked the clutsy girl character (could totally relate to the coffee spilling, not being able to make up boxes ect. LOL). Also some nice scenery of Tokyo in it. Fans of Japanese comedy/romance should check it out.
