An ambitious and intriguing film, full of striking imagery, that deals with complex philosophical issues around identity. Again Hiroshi Teshigahara gives me, after seeing Woman in the Dunes, really something to chew on. It makes me want to dig deeper into Teshigahara’s work and Japanese cinema in general.
There is a time and place where one little man won't take it anymore. In this modern-day David and Goliath story, placed in a small town near Rome, everything is about to explode in a way I couldn't foresee. Don’t expect any of the heroism and clear morals that exists in some stories. In this one, things are gonna get messy.
