Audience Reviews for Tony Takitani

  • Jul 17, 2010
    I love Haruki Murakami's stories, so I was predisposed to love this, and Ichikawa does a sterling job of turning a slight delicate tale into a slight, delicate film that conveys all the complexities of a life lived and a relationship won and lost, never hitting you over the head with a plot line, and always leaving a little space for unanswered questions and imagined what-ifs. Magical.

    the minimal dialogue was nice. the overtones of loneliness and masochistic deprivation were pretty standard japanese fare.

    Beautiful look at boredom is intricately simple and interesting. But the compelling start, ends up somewhat devoid of real story and leaves you feeling empty.

    Beautiful, but slow and subtle. Captures isolation perfectly. Nicely filmed with sad mood throughout. Unusual and worth a look.
