All About Lily Chou-Chou ()

Probable Score

Your Rating

Life isn't easy for a group of high school kids growing up absurd in Japan's pervasive pop/cyber culture. As they negotiate teen badlands- school bullies, parents from another planet, lurid snapshots of sex and death- these everyday rebels without a cause seek sanctuary, even salvation, through pop star savior Lily Chou-Chou, embracing her sad, dreamy songs and sharing their fears and secrets in Lilyholic chat rooms. Immersed in the speed of everyday troubles, their lives inevitably climax in a fatal collision between real and virtual identities, a final logging-off from innocence. (imdb)

A strange non-lineair plot, lots and lots of characters that seem to come out of nowhere and disappear or get killed randomly, unexplained character evolutions (class president-turned-bully, fucking weird), some inexplicable teenage prostitution and a rape scene, Japanese pop-music obsessions, some stuff about the 'Ether'...; god, what was happening?

Exhausting but equally charming. A theme that can, and should be thoroughly examined, and it's done some justice here.

Could use some editing, and the sudden personality change of a certain character feels arbitrary - though I knew people in high school whose personality would change depending on the context, there's something missing in this depiction of that - but it is beautifully shot and has a great soundtrack.

This is cinema, my friend. This is cinema. This film epitomizes that movie as an art form can express poetry, can resonate with music, can stride hard as a prose. This film talks about ether while the fact is this film is truly ethereal. Like the sand particles collate to form a dune, like droplets of salt water make an ocean, this film is threaded between love and anger, passion and rage, sympathy and torture. It takes individual blank spaces and make a vacuum, so deep, that it astonishes.

Great cinematography and score, but its pace feels too slow for such a long film. It's hard to get into when Sion Sono's Noriko's Dinner Table is far more engaging with its similar subject matter.

17 Novembre 2011 - Em costa de valorar. Havent-ne vist l'escena inicial diverses vegades feia temps que la tenia pendent. Tot i que segueixo sense entendre com pot funcionar la ment per acabar com certs personatges, en la meva experiència he trobat persones que -sense arribar a aquests extrems- patien canvis d'actitud radicals aparentment irracionals. El muntatge em sembla interessant.

Certainly not a perfect movie, and its flaws are more grating on repeat viewings: there are too many familiar high school drama tropes, an important plot point comes off as extremely unlikely, the protagonist's spinelessness strains our sympathies, the typed text sequences can be annoying. But although it can be disregarded as another manipulative high school melodrama, there's something weirdly mythic about the story and characters, particularly the antagonist's transformation.

Love the soundtrack, love the cinematography, love the originality and its ability to cross over many complex themes while still basically remaining a coming-of-age story. Still, I didn't love the movie as a whole because I found the characters to be somewhat unrelatable (but having been 14-15 in 2001 I was surprised at how universal the emotions are, since Eastern films usually have a much greater culture barrier.) and it did seem like it could have been trimmed down about 25 minutes.
