Audience Reviews for Insutanto numa (Instant Swamp)
Had it's moments, but couldn't call this one a favourite. About half an hour too long and doesn't make sense in places. Still, lead character with her swampy Milo addiction was sweet.
Good laughs. Satoshi Miki's quirky styled film, Instant Numa, is an instant success.
The excitable introduction, the surprising conclusion, and everything in between is pure entertainment. Despite the lack in clarity for where the story is going, watching the scenes unfold is amusing enough to make a movie, which is just under 2 hours, go by without any lackluster moments.
The film isn't a non stop laughing machine, but the laughs are there when needed. The eccentric nature of the film also livens up the story, which is fit for a full blown drama.
Kumiko Aso is the main attraction of the movie and there is no question about it. Her ability to bring out the wackiness of her character is a huge success, as her line delivery, facial expressions, and charismatic behavior makes every scene an enjoyable one. Props go out to the supporting cast as well.
Instant Numa is a good example of a fun Japanese comedy that isn't overly weird. There is delight to be had from this picture. Milo Sludge anyone?
