Movie Info

Japanese cinema sensation Ryuichi Hiroki offers a knowing critique of modern consumer culture and human longing in a highly-original romantic drama concerning a shy waitress' growing fascination with a struggling musician. Miyuki (Mami Nakamura) is a timid café waitress. Miyuki's neighbor Yoshinori (Kazuma Suzuki) is an unsuccessful rock musician who's got charisma to burn despite the fact that he's flat broke. Every night when she believes no one is watching, Miyuki furtively slips out of her apartment to collect Yoshinori's garbage and gather the small mementos that offer telling insight into the object of her silent affections. As voyeurism gradually transforms into obsession Miyuki believes that she is slowly piecing together the life of the man she is falling in love with. As well as Miyuki thinks she knows Yoshinori, however, everything changes when the two lonely neighbors finally meet face to face in an empty club where Yoshinori strums a melancholy melody. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

I saw this movie in 2007 and had mixed feelings. I liked what the movie was about and it was really low budget but it's not something I would recommend to anyone.
