Critic Reviews for Japanese Story
An underdeveloped film that requires all of [Collette's] ample skills merely to rise to the mediocre.
Lots of pictures begin strongly only to lose their focus; this one gains momentum with every sequence -- ambivalent at first, we're firmly hooked by the final frame.
Tsunashima gives a deft performance in a role that starts out as caricature but becomes full-bodied. Collette commands the screen virtually the entire time.
Starts off promisingly. Eventually, though, it collapses into melodrama.
Fails to engage us in the lives of its characters because it never really introduces them.
Brooks's spare and reverberant film ... stands back from the actors and just lets them be with each other.
Audience Reviews for Japanese Story
Toni Collette is one of those hot old chicks that I can't say no to. The movie was fun, I like Aussie stuff. She makes a good Aussie with her bad teeth and leathery skin. Moral of the story: don't go swimming in Australia?
It's a very nice movie to get if you're in a foreign romance movie kinda mood. I didn't think the story in itself was amazing but it was worth the watch.
Love Japanese Horror, This was not a Horror flix in anyway, But I screamed as loud as any Horror Flix I ever saw, Pretty boring, not sure how it got on my rental list but will not be on my to buy list. Nice Australian scenes
