Genuinely funny dark humor! , excellent acting, and very well-paced!
A beautiful depiction of melancholy (by carlreisa)
This is dark humor at its finest. If you like the works of Ruben Östlund Force Majeure and the Square or Yojiro Takita Departures , you will absolutely fall in love with this movie.This film is such an amazing mix between absolute nothingness, and horrible traumas... If you want to be emotionally shook up, this is the movie for you!
Even Shakespeare would be proud of this dark humoured tragedy. (by maripagliero)
"Good bye".....and the life is gone.In the case of Setsuko, in her mind it already had....and then John. Because she felt passed by, Johns teaching techniques created a sense of warmth to a lost soul and Setsuko's emotions flirted with love masqueraded by lust of a meaningful life.The script and direction were exquisite as was the acting performances. None could be faulted.The only reason I am not giving 10/10 is because there were a couple of goofs but I am a nerd so I am always hunting for faults.This is a wonderful example of beautiful cinema. GO SEE IT!!
Oh man (by dokrauss)
This is a tragedy that you do not know is a tragedy until it's about 3/4 of the way through. Up until then, you think it's a comedy of errors. It's not. Heartbreaking and very well done.
A heartwarming work of art (by juliamaryj)
It is compelling how filmmaker Atsuko succeeds in stitching the many lighthearted comic moments so seamlessly with the more pressing and raw emotions that Lucy Setsuko struggles with as the film unfolds. She hardly verbalizes her emotions yet you could almost feel her character tugging wildly at your heartstrings. Lucy's naivety and a certain aura of innocence is captured so profoundly in Shinobu Terajima's plausible performance. The stellar cast as a whole delivers a sincere and heartfelt performance, complimenting each others conflicting personalities so effortlessly despite the <more>
language barrier. It was intriguing to see how diverse cultural differences have the potential to influence and ignite our latent desires for better or for worse. In the case of Setsuko, her humdrum life as a singleton middle aged Japanese office worker, turns giddy high when she stumbles upon John Josh Hartnett , an unconventional English teacher from the US in the most unexpected of circumstances. His quirky techniques of teaching English which incorporates the need for her to take on a more liberal persona as Lucy, propels Setsuko to dare to delve deeper into her being and scratch the core to unveil an audacious side of her which will excite and overwhelm her beyond what she could possibly fathom. A side that leaves you questioning who she really is. Hailing from a conservative society, her sudden sense of liberation is hard to ignore when the plot quickly escalates and you find Lucy shedding her inhibitions recklessly in the US. She throws caution to the wind in her dealings with John and unabashedly proclaims that she is in love with him. But somehow you cant help but wonder if she genuinely feels for John or perhaps she is just wildly in love with her newfound freedom and persona which is tagged to John, as he is ultimately the catalyst that set her off on this journey of self discovery. Peppered with unexpected events, messy family feuds and raw human connections, the film slowly unravels the tainted sides of the key characters which somewhat serves to showcase the imperfections and complexities of life. When Lucy finally comes to her senses and finds herself in a boulevard of broken dreams and unrequited love, her character reveals a more vulnerable side of her once again which was what first captured our hearts in the beginning. We are reminded she is essentially only human and still deserving of empathy, despite her onslaught of arbitrary decisions that led to her downfall.A glimmer of hope comes in the form of Tom, an endearing saviour who leaves us feeling hopeful for Lucy and her shot at true love. Overall a film that succeeded in capturing an honest glimpse of human connections without romanticizing life, with a bold take on cultural differences sans being stereotypical or condescending that left me with a comforting reminder of hope when the odds are stacked against us.
Mousey spinster leaves Japan for romantic delusion in America. (by maurice_yacowar)
Oh Lucy may well have set a record for the number of suicides in a romantic comedy. Normally there would be... whirr of calculator um, yes, approximately none. Here we start with a citizen's suicide in the underground, another one reported soon after, then climactically two failed attempts. One is by the beautiful young niece, the other by the mousey middle-aged heroine. And the son of the man who saves her killed himself too. Oy Lucy. Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn this ain't. The suicides punctuate a panorama of lives lived and wasted in quiet desperation. The film's title <more>
and trailer carried not an inkling of the darkness in this "love story." A repressed Tokyo office worker discovers her wild side when she falls for her young American English teacher and follows him out to sunny California. From the moment she adopts her new American name of Lucy and dons the crazy Harpo blonde wig, love and hilarity ensue. Spoiler alert: Nope. The clues come early. Our first view of "Lucy" is behind the white face-mask that connotes fear of infection, fear of contamination, fear of life. She witnesses the first subway suicide and hears about the second. She's uncomfortable and cramped in her office job, a room of exposed desks, where even her eventual humiliation plays out in public. Her stunted emotional life dates back to her first love, whom her sister stole and married. Lucy's sex with Tom avenges that, though at her niece's emotional expense as well as Lucy's sister's. It's hard to sympathize with Lucy. She's duped by her flighty niece into over paying for the English lessons. After tutor John departs, the dashed Lucy explodes at her colleague's retirement party, brutally and pointlessly exposing the sham sentiments of the occasion. Our glimpses of Lucy's apartment are of a chaotic mess of random and lurid junk, an emblem of her own doomed dream life perhaps. Liberated from Japanese restraints, in America her sexual predation deepens her indecorum and delusion. Indeed no-one here is wholly sympathetic. The dashing hugger John may come on as the fresh American spirit but he proves a jerk too. He abandoned his wife and daughter for the adventure in Japan, then abdicated his responsibilities to chase his latest fancy. If he indeed did quit a teaching job at Stanford, then he stands with Lucy, the niece, her mother, another example of people who make disastrous life choices. A fringe character provides the only stability. English student "Tom" embraces John's compulsion to embrace but proves to live that emotional, human commitment. The goofy prosaic Japanese man proves the saviour Lucy craved to find in the dashing American. After Tom saves Lucy the film closes on the note off their romantic promise. But it's in the underground, where the suicides happen. And it took his son's suicide to snap Tom into recognition of bis need for human intimacy. It may start with John's sham friendliness but in Tom it blossoms into a true connection.
How does one reconcile reality and delusion when the illusion of love is at hand? A rather wound up and repressed Japanese woman takes a leap. An interesting twist in a woman's search for love. What crawled under my skin was how Japanese culture was portrayed...emotionally repressed, and the 'awkwardness' that ensues. I felt like I was in Japan again... Although topically a comedy, the underlying theme is loss. The actors do a magnificent job.
Wonderful (by ezgoinguy971968)
There is something to say of a film with such a slow casual pacing that keeps you enthralled and waiting for the next turn. The story and cast were wonderful with some unexpected turns. Watch and enjoy.
