  1. Linda's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    2.5 have to say I kind of not remember this movie but I know that it was OK when I watched it :D

  2. Malt Frisky's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    I was on board with this film for the first 30 minutes, intrigued by mystery and a revenge story until Ryu and David's first meeting where shitty English dialogue appears and the films cracks rapidly start showing. Awkward sex scenes, characters with no character (kind of important), a story that doesn't give a shit along with the director. There's better films representing Japanese cinema... this isn't it. Avoid!

  7. Michele's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

  8. aaron mannino's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    the image posted for this film is taken from Hou Hsiao-hsien's THREE TIMES.

  9. hastapura's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    The Platonic ideal of the bullshit arthouse picture. When you say "art film" to your mom and dad, this is the kind of limp-wristed, pretentious (YUP), turgid slime that they'll think of. Hides behind the art label to deliver plain old bad writing and empty provocation - see the first scene, which promises an entirely different type of film (but it's subverting expectations!!). Thrill to another meek Japanese girl.

  10. olivier2046's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    I was attracted by the beautiful title, but there's no map of sounds here. The film looks like a postcard or a touristic pamphlet full of western clichés about Japan. Every location of the film seems picked in the Lonely Planet... The bird's-eyes views of the city are stock shots from a famous DVD ("Virtual Trip - Tokyo night view from the sky")... The map of the sounds of Tokyo still wait to be drawn.

  11. lupiter's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    not even rinko kinkuchi can save how cliché, boring and undeveloped the plot is. beautiful cinematography though.

  12. Tigrão's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    Uneven but when it works, it works really well.

  13. Michael Nisi's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    Remarkably good sound design.

  14. Reginald Healer Marcellin's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    True dat. Why the Three Times still?

  15. HEDONIST's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    Beautiful cinematography, great sexual chemistry between Rinko Kikuchi and Sergi López... I found it interesting how Coixet really took a gamble on making the sex scenes noticeably long and graphic almost a la 'Last Tango in Paris'... The composition is stunningly though really... beyond that, the film falls a bit short in its character establishment, narrative development, etc. ... still worth a gander though...

  16. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    I love the scene when Sergi Lopez sings Depeche Mode's "Enjoy the Silence" in a karaoke bar. But that's about it.

  17. Rocketeam's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    I still think it would be good to use a screenshot from the actual movie instead of the one that is on right now which is from Hsiao-hsien Hou's "Three Times"

  18. iroko's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    ¿Qué tal escucharla con el proyector apagado?

  19. Edwin N's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    Rinko Kikuchi is so amazingly beautiful in this.. Isabel Coixet's best, probably only good, film.

  20. fortytwoshadesofblue's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    Awesome cinematography, Very physical acting. Everything looked and sounded beautiful, but the story fucking SUCKED !! DAMN IT.

  21. Alvaro's rating of the film Map of the Sounds of Tokyo

    If it hadn't such sweet, honest and bold sex scenes, and for a couple of fantastic tunes by Misora Hibari, I would definitely have given it a star less. As for the rest of the movie, Japan in general and Tokyo in particular have proven to be just too big and too much for Coitex's skill.
