In this semi-autobiographical comedy, filmmaker Hirobumi Watanabe plays, well, filmmaker Hirobumi Watanabe, who bumbles around his hometown of Otawara struggling to come up with ideas (and money) for his next project. As film critic Mark Schilling writes, “the film combines self-deprecating humor and stylistic invention in ways funny and thought provoking….But Watanabe is not only after laughs; he is also a stylist and a surrealist who finds the bizarre in the everyday, somewhat like a Japanese David Lynch. As his doppelganger director moves through his daily round, we see repeated motifs that range from the unexpectedly beautiful to the strange and unsettling.”
