Underwater Love (2011)

Underwater Love (2011)
Directed by: Shinji Imaoka
Country: Japan

Summary: A whimsical pink film musical about a woman and a sea creature.
Review: A musical comedy that for several moments reminded me the weirdness of some Takashi Miike’s films, such as “Visitor Q” or “The Happiness Of The Katakuris”, but without achieving the quality of those ones. “Underwater Love” is an alternative movie that can be seen with apprehension but failing to provoke any kind of positive effect. A very particular love story dissimulated in a bunch of sexual scenes, where human beings get involved with a traditional creature of Japanese folklore called kappa. The cinematography is the only reason why you would want to watch this movie, considering that a few laughs of absurdity aren’t enough to make it worth.
