Audience Reviews for The World Sinks Except Japan (Nihon igai zenbu chinbotsu)
A low budget comedy produced in 2006 that has some bizarre similarities to Roland's 2012 (2009) where both Earths end with shifting/ sinking plates into the Oceans, bu in this comedy's case the world sinks one nation at at time along the political boundaries. Here Japan and the world's peaks are spared and the few survivors goto Japan. The cleverest gag is the world leaders who's neckties are the flags of thier respective countries. Director Minoru Kawasaki later produced another Japanese poltical comedy "Monster X Attacks the G8 Summit" and recycles famous gaijin lookalike actors and a few gags from this for that one. Foreign audiences may have tough time understanding some jokes but this one has an interesting dark comedy approach to humanity's darker sides and some Japanese underlying culural angst about the world stage.
Amusing Japanese film that is part disaster movie parody and part social/political satire dealing w/ foreign relations, xenophobia, etc. Apparently based on the book of the same name which parodies the novel "The Sinking of Japan" (which itself has been made into a big budget disaster flick).
Comedy that isn't overly funny and social commentary that isn't that provoking. Still, it's enjoyable and it's heart is in the right place (I thought it was going to be just another anti-America film, but it was harshest on Japan) and I did laugh a couple of times.
