poorly intertwined but you shouldn’t care!
There are 5 stories that somehow connect but not really intertwine (this is the deceptive part), however, I liked all of them, the movie puts a especial emphasis in bizarreness, but it doesn’t go too far.
Wife and Husband- This is in fact the fantastic part of the movie, the silentness of the wife is the main tool for getting you into that sweet vacillation of whether things are real or not, but there are lot more, as the costumes she wears every time (Which reminds me to a movie knows as “héroe” by this latitudes) and the phase-shifts. Here we also have the sweet dose of violence.
Killers – I got pretty surprised when I ran into “Big Chris”! The contrast between Jones and the translator was way bizarre. There’s not much going on here, since both of them are like a lone functional character.
Birdman- The “strange” vector of the film, yet the cutest, Keiichi’s perspective keeps the frankness of children accurately. I LOVED the teacher scene.
Yoko the Creative- Oh god, Yoko’s ideas for commercials are so unfunny they become funny, and Yoko is funny herself. Really laugh with the way she laughs and with the wild winking when she’s having her “afflati”. Here I may mark two characters I would had LOVED to see a little bit more of = The café girls. The accident girl was so funnily pathetic, and that were really strengthened by the uncaring friend. I wonder what would have happened to her if she’d got a third scene!!
The Housebreakers = And again we find a bizarre contrast, this time between the “ugly” and the “sexy” burglars. This story takes little of the film’s length and it is also the most disconnected one, but adds a funky “sexuality” note.
And to finish, I liked the music.
Definitely one of the most bizarre movies of 2004, also one of the greatest
By far one of the oddest, yet most brilliant movies of 2004. Five separate stories led by each story’s own bizarre set of characters, end up tying together in a set of unusual consequences. Fantastic Cinematography, characterization, and story. This movie is truly one of kind.
Other movies containing the basic storyline of character’s lives tying together in unusual consequences, such as “Magnolia,” can’t compare to the charm Survive Style 5+ has. From director, Gen Sekiguchi, who directed commercials of his own (those who have seen the movie know what I’m referring to) in Japan prior to Survive Style 5+. The movie contains brilliant colors, especially in Aman’s mansion. Magnificent colors of bright blues, reds, and greens make the movie worth turning your head for straight from the beginning.
Some of the characters include Aman (Tadanobu Asano) who is fantastic in the role of a silent killer. Murdering his wife only to have her stirring in her grave for revenge. A game show hit called “Viva Friends” hosted by an awkward man with strange behavior who is able to hypnotize his audience, only to be murdered by a foreign hit man (Vinnie Jones).
An everyday family having an obsession with the game show “Viva Friends” which only leads to their father being hypnotized into thinking he is a bird. Upon the hypnotists death, the dad is unable to recover from his hypnotism, and is forced to be bird-dad from then on.
A young group of miscreants thieving neighborhood houses while still entertaining those watching the movie with their humorous conversations, and relationships between the trio.
Finally a women named Yoko who creates commercials for several companies such as one led by Kazama, the Advertising Company President (Shinichi Chiba) that distributes aspirin pills. Her commercials have a bizarre joke tone to them, and most of the commercials end up being rejected due to the lack of understanding of what the product actually does for the consumer.
How the stories pull off tying each other together is truly brilliant. Definitely a great ending the movie deserved, but I’ll let you see that for yourself. Anyone who can laugh at bizarre situations, and conversations will love the dialogue and the movie altogether. 8.5/10
