Critic Reviews for Asako I & II (Netemo sametemo)
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.
Equally adept with subtle, naturalistic sketches and well-timed bursts of emotion, Hamaguchi observes as Asako navigates her relationships across an elliptical seven or so years.
