Movie Info

Three distinct tales unfold in the bustling city of Tokyo. Merde (Denis Lavant), a bizarre sewer-dweller, emerges from a manhole and begins terrorizing pedestrians. After his arrest, he stands trial and lashes out at a hostile courtroom. A man (Teruyuki Kagawa) who has resigned himself to a life of solitude reconsiders after meeting a charming pizza delivery woman. And finally, a happy young couple (Ayako Fujitani, Ryô Kase) find themselves undergoing a series of frightening metamorphoses.

    Bookended by two wonderful films by Bong and Gondry; it's best to skip through the nasty second film.

    Three directors. Three thirty-something-minutes film set in Tokyo. Don't expect to learn anything about the Japanese city, those stories could have pretty much been set anywhere. All three movies are very different from each other. The first one is just an excuse for Michel Gondry to do his thing. Leos Carax directs the second one, it's strange but hilarious. The final one, but not the least, is a cute love tale from Bong Joon-ho. All three movies are exceptionally wet shot, they carry the print of their authors and they all work in what they attempt to do. Could be watched separately and it wouldn't change a thing.

    Seems like everyone rates these 3 mini-films differently, so my rating is .... Carax one star, Gondry two stars and Bong three stars and none of em worth much jumping up and down about unless your name's Zebedee.

    3 short stories using tokyo as a setting, 3 very diferent tales and all adding a lot to the stories they are telling, the biggest name here being michael gondry, all three tales are never dull, and very stylish in what they are doing, the first story being my fav, about a couple arriving in tkyo, stying with a friend, and trying to start fresh, then it turns to something peculier and great, the 2nd funny in parts about a mad frenchman roaming madly in city being catured then tried for its crimes, this is also great and finally the third concerning a shut in, who through a chance encounter, needs to act, all stories add a bit of quirk t them, and are never dull, and very stylish
