  • Shimotsuma monogatari


Momoko (Fukuda) is an aficionado of the Lolita-look, one of those "only in Japan" fashions endemic to Tokyo's Harajuku area where its adherents can be seen congregating every Sunday to have their photos taken: an outlandish miscegenation of Vladimir Nabokov's eponymous pre-pubescent sweet-sucking vamp, Morticia Addams and the classic French maid fantasy. Looking like a cuter version of current reigning pop queen Ayumi Hamasaki clothed in a pristine pink frilly Bo-Peep dress, Momoko is a long way from Harajuku however. Her troubled childhood beginning in the delivery room with her mother running off with her gynaecologist, she now lives with a senile grandma and a petty criminal of a father, whose last scam ended with a quick change of address to out in the sticks after being run out of town for hawking fake Versace handbags. Stuck amongst the cow shit and paddy fields of rural Ibaraki prefecture, where the local fashion ideal is a 200-yen polo shirt from the local outlet store Juscos, she yearns of escaping back into the opulent world of the 18th century court of Versailles, to the glory days of when the French aristocracy idled their days away in an ecstasy of sleep, embroidery and country walks. Fortunately salvation arrives just in time to shake her out of her hazy rococo reverie in the form of Ichiko, a biker girl with grrrl and an Ozzy Osbourne approach to eyeliner. A member of the no-men-allowed biker pack The Ponytails, her appearance in Ibaraki leads to a very peculiar sort of friendship, and one which guarantees that Momoko's life will never be the same again.

I generally don't find Japanese films to be very accessible, unlike anime which for me is the epitome of cinematic art (full stop), but I did find this film interesting, with the two main characters sweet and a bit humorous. For me it's another glimpse into the enigmatic side of the Japanese psyche though a bit more comprehensible than many.

The best dvd version for this masterpiece!
I love this movie. And you will too.
a) You dislike laughing throughout a movie, cause the comedy elements in this movie will literally make you drop to the floor and laugh uncontrollably ( but please, only do this when you are alone..)
b) You hate great, awesome, moving, and epic music from the always brilliant Yoko Kanno
c) You can't stand great story, great acting and everything great that makes a movie great.. you get the picture.

Also this Hong Kong version is the best available version, even better than the US version in terms of picture quality. So this is the closest you can get to the picture quality of the Japanese DVD which is the best but of course with no subs.
