Kabukicho Love Hotel
Japan, 2014, 135 minutes Drama, Asian
Another great find from the Japan Foundation Touring Film Programme 2017 at ICA London. This little masterpiece of intertwined stories, all connected to Tokyo's Kabukicho entertainment district, brings us a great cast of colourful characters, including some strong female characters, my favourite being Lee Eun-woo as Hena aka Ilia. The film follows the adventures of the hotel manager and his staff (one of them a fugitive), his musician girlfriend and adult video newbie sister, two cheating police officers, and various other hotel guests over a period of 24 hours. Plenty of laughs but also hints of more serious topics like Japanese-Korean relations and the demise of the Kabukicho district. A nice drama to watch with plenty of nice sights :)
