Showyo: An Adolescent is a Japanese Lolita story. Tomokawa is a bicycle
policeman in a small village. There is very little crime, so he has found a
great way to make the work day seem shorter. He finds pets, keeps them at home
for a few days, then returns them to their grateful single female owners. He
knows exactly how they can express their gratitude, and dispel some of their
loneliness in the bargain.
Yoko (Mayu Ozawa) seduces him, claiming to be 17, but he later discovers
that she is 16, is in Junior High School, and is the sister of a simpleton he
The description makes it sound like an exploitation movie with a little
pedophilia thrown in for good measure, but that is not the case. Tomokawa is a
sensitive, caring person, and is in love with Yoko before he knows her true
age. They are also connected in a somewhat mystical way. He has a tattoo of a
one-winged bird covering his back. The legend has it that he needs the female
version of the one-winged bird before either of them can soar. It was Yoko's
grandfather that gave him the tattoo, and her mother was supposed to have the
female version. For her part, Yoko had probably loved Tomokawa from an early
age based on his tattoo.
The photography is absolutely wonderful, and the film also serves as a
portrait of small village life in Japan. Okuda, in his directorial debut and
also starring as Tomokawa, seemed to have no difficulty being both in front of
and behind the camera, and both lead performers won numerous small festival
awards for their performances. In spite of a 132 minute running time, this
film moves very quickly.
This is a C+. If you enjoy Japanese cinema and don't mind burned-in
subtitles, this is one you will want to see.
IMDb readers say 6.7 based on 90 votes.

Dann reports on Art School Confidential:
I guarantee that most people will look at the cover of the DVD for this
2006 comedy and assume it's some T & A sexploitation flick. It isn't,
although Sophia Myles looks great in the film's one nude scene. It
is in fact a very good black comedy that explores the world of art
schools, pretentious artist, and the general if somewhat miserable human
A talented artist since early childhood,
Jerome pursues his dreams at art school, where he is introduced to the
reality of egotistical wannabe artist professors, the politics of art, and
the realization that you probably have to die to be a successful artist.
Throw in heartsick puppy love for a model
who is also the daughter of an actually successful artist, a murder
mystery involving a serial-killer strangler, and various complications
with other students, and you've got a first-rate black comedy.
Everyone did a great job in this flick,
and the ending suits the tone of the movie totally. I highly recommend it.
It's almost an all-European contribution tonight.
