IFFR 2012: Tokyo Playboy Club

Written By: frenchy on February 6, 2012 No Comment


Movie: Tokyo Playboy Club (Yôsuke Okuda, Japan, 2011, 97 min.) imdb link

Date: Jan 30, 2012

Rating: ★★★½☆
(a nice little variant on the Yakuza movie genre)

Plot: The owner of a crappy club gets a visit from an old friend who needs a job. When another employee steals money from the club, things start to deteriorate.

Cast: The main character’s performance was true to the genre.

Visuals: Some fun scenes, liked the closing shot.

Conclusion: Nothing glamarous about the life of criminals. It’s a view of a very unglamarous life with lots of obligations and risks with an even worse return on investments.
Nothing new about the storyline, but still very interesting.
