Many say this is about the loneliness in a big city but to me this was more like the loneliness of existence. Other than some landscapes it didn't have that much about big city to it. The doll starts feeling sad when it finds out it has a heart. The soundtrack is absolutely perfect and crafted by Katsuhiko Maeda (World's End Girlfriend)
Interesante película sobre el vacío del hombre en las nuevas sociedades de consumo, un vacío que se cubre con la imagen, con lo superficial, que piensa en el hombre como objeto (de trabajo, sexual, etc.). Un vacío que pesa y es sombrío, e inclusive puede llevar a la muerte. Sin embargo, aun está la capacidad de aceptar la realidad, de ser sinceros (transparentes) y apostarle al corazón ante la cruda realidad
Having adored the only other Kore-eda film I've seen so far, the sublime Maborosi, I came to this one with high expectations that weren't matched by my viewing experience. The Pinocchio-like premise held promise and the performance of Bae as the sex doll come-to-life is immensely charming. However, I found the film to be somewhat lacking in substance and meandering. Overall, this air doll was a deflating experience..
