Ratings & Reviews

  1. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Japanese Story

  2. Mugino's rating of the film Japanese Story

    The film is less about the relationship than it is about a sense of place, both literally (the breathtaking Australian outback) and in an existentialist way (how the place encapsulates and instigates the characters' transformations). The incessant, brooding music in the last act and seemingly inescapable stereotypes about the Japanese prevent this from being great, but Collette is such a delight to watch.

  3. Craig B's rating of the film Japanese Story

    One of the best films of the '00s. Toni Collette is unmatchable in this. Brilliant.
