No, really? Why is this movie called Japan (Japon)??? ..... How did this movie win any award? ..... According to DVD cover, it won Cannes Film Festival, forgot to mention it was for "special mention" ..... I agree, this film was very very special :).... "Meditation on the ecstasies and terrors of the natural world", ahahahahah, kill me now!!! ..... Nice visuals, boring after 20min. ..... Unrealistic story line ..... Waste of my time, for sure! ..... Glad, watched the movie alone. ..... Would be embarrassed to host this movie for friends! Not because of nudity, but because of lack of plot. Would not recommend wasting money on this movie.

This film, though not close to perfect is a beautifully crafted work that uses cinema to create poetry. It seems that the director might have been heavily influenced by Italian neorealist cinema (think de Sica) and uses nonprofessional actors who convincingly take on their roles. The story explores sex and romance among people normally associated with being at the end of their lives and no longer in need of that type of affection. The older woman lead is brilliant, and the cinematography captures the unromanticized bleakness of life in rural Mexico. The problem with the film is that it seems a bit pretentious when it becomes too cryptic. Also, at times, the story meanders, and I still don't get the title but overall a solid piece of work and a nice respite from big-budget Hollywood films.
Good attempt, mediocre results. The strong images throughout the movie DO achieve a goal, because they are so grotesque that you cannot get rid of a feeling that (your) death is (your) life's ending. I think that's what the movie is about.
I also agree that some scenes are unnecessarily long.
The idea of making things spontaneously was great as a point of departure, but sometimes the acting is so bad that you don't feel like seeing a movie, but an amateur experiment.
A super-hyped director, multi-prize winner. I'm not saying he's a bad director, but he lacks closeness to the real characters that he tries to show. To say it clearly, he is a high-middle class movie maker who doesn't really know how the people in very small Mexican towns are. That angle of the movie is sooooo amateur- and false.
He should have taken a long vacation in those places before, to really get to know the reality he fails to show here. The lack of rhythm makes everything seem so artificial- trying to be natural.
All that fixed, we could have a promising director.
