Ott has explored his theme - how each person's destiny is propelled by the past but left dangling, isolated in a seemingly formless present - with great subtlety.

[Ott's] distilled the town until it floats somewhere between a hangover and a dream.

This evocative, deceptively rich slice of life has its own voice, and it never fails to be enjoyable for several reasons.

It's significantly smaller and more casual than "Mystery Train" or "Lost in Translation," movies its premise calls to mind, but in some ways it's more layered and complex.

There's a melancholy to this indie's cross-cultural explorations and communication breakdowns that compensates for the broader swipes.

Atsuko the character doesn't speak English; Atsuko the actress, speaking mostly un-subtitled Japanese when she speaks at all, gives a performance that's a marvel of nonverbal reaction.

Littlerock wins your involvement by its meandering off-handedness and refusal to play up its strangers-in-a-strange-land conceit.

Agreeable if finally unsatisfying.
