Critic Reviews for Asako I & II (Netemo sametemo)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

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.

Top Critic

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.

Top Critic

An oddly old-fashioned depiction of troubled romance whose mildly unusual premise ultimately leads nowhere very interesting.

May 14, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

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.

May 23, 2018 | Full Review…

Ryūsuke Hamaguchi's follow-up to 2015's acclaimed Happy Hour is a romanceless dud with a clumsy conceit.
