Audience Reviews for Living on Tokyo Time
A movie that Japanese Americans that lived through the 1980s can relate to. Kinda slow at times, but it has a lot of bittersweet comedy in it. A modern tale of cultural clash between a Japanese girl and a Japanese American guy, who is too frequently identified as Japanese by white Americans. He does not speak Japanese and does not like Japanese food.
Humorous and underrated Japanese comedy. Very funny at times, although timing is slow. If you are patient, you'll be in for a cute, not-really-that-romantic comedy. I'd definitely recommend a viewing of it.
I saw this film when I first moved to San Francisco. The actors where inexperienced, but it was a well written script that I could relate to.
