Funuke: Show Some Love, You Losers!
Time Out says
What’s distinctive is the way the film takes stock characters from Japanese TV soaps (Hiromi Nagasaku plays Shinji’s effusively submissive wife to perfection) and filters them into a skittish US-indie-styled dramedy, though with Kyomi’s manga-drawing skills a key part of the scenario, the visual approach is sometimes too fluffily decorative to let the emotions deliver in full. Eminently likeable nonetheless.
