Kiyoshi Kurosawa directs Atsuko Maeda, Shota Sometani and Tokio Emoto in this Japanese drama where a travel show presenter feels alienated in Uzbekistan.
A nothing movie… Yoko has a gruelling and confusing time filming her latest episode in a country where everything and everyone feels inhospitable and overbearing. There’s a nice interlude involving the liberation of a goat. Kurosawa injects a paranoid dream logic into the silent longueurs between repetitive incidents.
