Barren Illusions

Ôinaru gen'ei

Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa
Japan, 1999
Drama, Romance


A razor-sharp dissection of contemporary Japanese culture which depicts its subject as being so devoid of its own identity that it’s almost completely co-opted by a culture that engenders repetitive, non-thinking behavior.
