Ross Foubister’s review:
A brilliant documentary on the business of Host clubs in Japan (specifically Osaka), which allow women to pay to go on dates with handsome young men. The film looks into the business from both the perspective of the hosts, and their customers. Some incredibly honest interviews reveal the people involved are often very aware of the negatives of the business.
The Japanese sex industry is very unique and often misunderstood by foreign cultures, so this makes a great subject for a documentary. What makes it better is that "The Great Happiness Space" explores the personalities of some greatly experienced and insightful people. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who's curious, or thinks they knows this subject inside out already.
