Critic Reviews for Asako I & II (Netemo sametemo)
There are moments of real beauty in the film, which is an unassuming and contemplative excursion into how we love, and why. But like the fireworks that greet Asako and Baku's first kiss, its pop is a modest one.
Asako I & II ultimately works as a mellow date movie with some big insights about relationships-accessible and artful, a combination that should be more common, honestly.
Hamaguchi extols his source for a compelling representation of love as a mystic experience. However, what gets transferred to the screen becomes more like banal indecision.
An oddly old-fashioned depiction of troubled romance whose mildly unusual premise ultimately leads nowhere very interesting.
It's refreshing to see a high-concept movie that doesn't assume every love story has to reach a tidy conclusion, and implies that some happy endings are best left open-ended.
