Life's not all hee hee ha ha

Until the lights come back. I'll just stand here and scream.

A relatively interesting topic for a movie.
What would happen when Tokyo, the city of all cities experiences a major blackout? I think the word you're looking for, is 'fucked'.
Of course, in a commercialised movie world, reality doesn't matter. Relationship is the most important thing in life.
And the whole movie's just that.
It's like a Japanese version of Crash, but instead of racism it's an intertwined story of relationships.
I like it because, like Crash, it's not a happy happy film. Not everyone gets a second chance in love, and life.
A bit soppy, a bit 'can you just cut to the point' at some times, nonetheless it's still quite a gripping movie.
