Audience Reviews for Warm Water Under a Red Bridge

  • Jun 19, 2013
    This is perhaps one of the strangest Japanese movies that I have seen but it works nonetheless. The characters are well defined and the story line turns the unbelievable into the plausible.

    A serious film about some quirky, off-beat, WTF subject matter. The less you know the better!

    Not the best Imamura,but it certainly takes a blow and vanquishes anyone who assumes it's just another "love story",spiced up with the delicate romance.Negative.As always that viciously talented Japanese master explains to us the simplicity in fantastic tendency for unreal.Unreal for the unimaginative ones.Yakusho is excellent in an unusual role as the man who meets his match: an orgasmic "gift".
