After Michel Gondry's incredibly well-intentioned but silly "Be Kind Rewind," it's nice to see the Frenchman back at work, offering one of the three works that make up "Tokyo!" Along with Leos Carax and Bong Joon-ho, the film offers a diverse group of voices in international cinema. At Cannes '08, indieWIRE's Anthony Kaufman covered the film and had these thoughts:
“Tokyo!,” an admittedly uneven, but worthwhile omnibus project, which include Michel Gondry‘s sweet-natured magical-realist look at space constraints and utility in the Japanese capital, Leos Carax’s obnoxious, funny and very strange fuck-you to the Japanese “Merde,” and Bong Joon-Ho‘s beautifully conceived love story “Shaking Tokyo,” a personal highlight.
