Time Out says

Commissioned by the city of Kochi to mark the opening of its Museum of Modern Art, this experimental feature by Japan's foremost gay indie film-maker almost defies description. The film is divided into six 10-minute chapters (or 'boxes') which, says Oki, add up to an image of 'heaven'. They certainly do add up to a portrait of the city and its people, from the mayor posing outside the railway station to the undressed boys lying around Oki's own apartment, from a strange piece of performance art outside the new museum to the fish market and the youth orchestra playing on the seashore. Ineffably idiosyncratic and mildly sexy, it rewards repeated viewings.
