This film was very interesting and gave a lot of insight to the French culture, however it was somewhat confusing. There were many story lines that all crossed and many characters intertwined. My only complaint about this film would be the outrageous amount of nudity and sexuality. The movie falls into the category ‚romantic dramady‚? but does not say anywhere in the description that it is a borderline pornographic film. This the director could have done without and still made as successful of a movie with more discretion. The director, Jean-Pierre Limosin, is notorious for his strange and erotic dramas. He has directed a total of nine films, including documentaries, TV movies, and mainstream films. His 1998 film ‚Tokyo Eyes‚? was shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival. One of the ideas of the film was how Graham, the main character, functioned in life as an everyday human being, despite his head injury. This seemed somewhat realistic. He lives on his own and only relies on a notebook to direct him where and when to go to work? I do not believe that this was truly believable. Additionally, his family was content with him moving to his own apartment and abandoning them to live a sexually inclined lifestyle. Another part of the movie that seemed quite unrealistic was all of the sex. It got to a point when watching the film that you start to wonder if Graham was an erotic dancer prior to his injury. It was hard to empathize with Graham and his unfortunate condition when majority of the movie he was naked and tangled in the sheets with a woman who wasn‚(TM)t even his wife. The whole notion of free sex for everyone is particularly French and I do not think that this would be accepted in American film. While in an American film, we sometimes see infidelity or brief sex scenes, there was nothing left to the imagination. This probably speaks about the culture and how unlike Americans, they are proud of their sexuality, not embarrassed. This film also demonstrates the value of close and romantic relationships. We see how attached Graham becomes to Irene and how he seems to need her to function, even though he doesn‚(TM)t have much memory of her in a long-term basis. Overall, this movie was pretty confusing and outrageously sexual, to the point of unnecessary scenes. Compared to ‚50 First Dates,‚? the movies are night and day.
