Visually Until the Lights Come Back is a wonderful film, somewhat slick and polished in places, but shot with a great feel for lighting, color and framing. It's set on Xmas eve, so there are some pretty scenes too in the first part of the movie. Keep checking Rotten Tomatoes for updates! Presented by Microsoft Surface. The acting is good, which in this case means it is hardly noticeable and the characters are very believable.

Until the Lights Come Back
The start of the film is a tad slow as Minamoto needs to introduce his entire cast through several short sequences. After a piece of satellite hits a nearby power station the entire Tokyo area is experiencing a power blackout.
Until the Lights Come Back 6. The music too is an asset for the film. It's a shame Minamoto wasn't able to repeat his success, then aditeiden Until mi Lights Come Back is a great film and sometimes that's just enough.
Characters displayed are a nice sample of Tokyo life, having so much in common with the people I meet every day in this crazy town that I felt immediately comfortable with the setting. The acting is good, which in this case means it is hardly noticeable and the characters are very believable.

Full Cast and Crew. There are no approved quotes yet for this movie.
With this kind of setup it always feels as if there's a little too much coincidence at play, then again, once you get the whole picture it's just a pretty smart breakdown of the drama and the people involved. Throughout the night the connections between the various characters become clearer as people meet up and hidden background stories are revealed. We are mostly told about old love and shattered illusions.
Ken Utsui, Koji Kikkawa and Etsushi Toyokawa are also on a role here, ensuring the core cast is yru to par. While spring probably isn't the yotu season to watch this one it's a true Christmas film at hearta second viewing did little to take away from my initial impressions.
The Haunting of Hill House. A Christmas Eve power outage provides a collection of troubled Tokyo denizens the opportunity to come clean on the misdeeds of their past in director Takashi Minamoto's snowbound winter drama.
The theme is not new, nor is the implementation in the form of intertwining story lines. Takashi Minamoto is a one hit wonder, plain and simple. Reviews Features Top Film log Archive facebook twitter.
Even at the very beginning some connections are hinted at, but you're bound to miss some of those on your first viewing, simply because you lack familiarity with the different characters.
Yes No Report this. The story start with a bunch of small threads and there are quite a few that converge together near the end of the film.
New love is only hinted on and it adds to the overall mood of the film that the audience is left to imagine where it might lead to. I think there's close to main characters here, all with their own background stories and sorrows, so it takes a while to get through the first 30 minutes.
Fresh Off the Boat. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends. A big part of the film's appeal lies in its romantic setting.
