    Dogs Don't Wear Pants


    Certainly a lot of style shown here and the two leads are really convincing. Less effective whenever it goes for melodrama. Has a great ending at least.

    As long as you remember to wave, you'll get pretty invested in this particular romantic story. David Jonsson and Vivian Oparah's charismatic performances draw you in and their chemistry is contagious.

    Visually goes beyond its budget, production design being the highlight, but falls apart on the page. Unimaginative drama and poorly written dialogue swallow the characters whole.

    Director-writer Chie Hayakawa and her lead actor Chieko Baishô create a poignant, thought-provoking character journey. The film's central conflict is introduced and employed with such ease by the filmmaker.
