はなび [Fireworks] (1997)

Clumsy, frail, sad, doomed individuals, trying until the end. This existential cop melodrama uses – and twists – many genre stereotypes, touching on far more than expected; work ethics, family issues, distorted masculinity, the healthcare system, etc.

In my book of emotional and intelligent entertainment.

    I didn’t love this one. There’s a lot here that’s pretty, but there’s too much exposition for some things and not nearly enough for others. I ended up kind of not caring much.

  2. I can well understand that in hindsight. But when watching, I was more or less swept away, despite the flaws. Plus, I am quite fond of »pretty« 😉
