R100 (Hitoshi Matsumoto, 2013): Japan

Reviewed by Iku Sato. Viewed at AFI Film fest 2013.

“R100” was made by Hitoshi Matsumoto in Japan, 2013. This story is that Takahumi who is working in a furniture store goes to club which is a┬ábrothel. This club dispatches strange women and they begin to influence to his family. He tried to cancel a contract but this contract is for 1 year and he can’t cancel. He decide to do a battle with the club. If I grade this film 50 / 100 points.

Hitoshi Matsumoto is a Japanese famous comedian. He respects Takeshi Kitano who is famous comedian and director. However, Matsumoto doesn’t have a talent and I watched his other movies but they were an immature movie. R100 couldn’t get large audience in Japan and many Japanese didn’t be satisfied. This movie got the worst grade in┬áToronto International Film Festival and I don’t know why Afi fest invited this film.
