Come and Go

Drama, Comedy 2h 38m 2020

『カム・アンド・ゴー』


Tourists, foreigners and outcasts converge on the streets of Osaka in this sprawling ensemble drama by Japan-based, Malaysia-born filmmaker Lim Kah Wai. Reminiscent of Robert Altman’s Nashville (1975) in its loose, multi-character structure and location specificity, Lim’s eighth feature explores the lesser-known aspects of the Asian melting pot city through the eyes and experiences of a dozen characters who struggle to find their place in society—among them a Nepali refugee with dreams of opening a restaurant, a Burmese student struggling to make ends meet while working two jobs and a Taiwanese sex tourist (amusingly played by Tsai Ming-liang muse Lee Kang-sheng) who travels to meet his favorite adult video actress. A fascinating, multi-faceted portrait of modern Osaka (specifically the Umeda district), Come and Go complicates the idea of Japan’s homogeneity while not shying away from social criticism.
