Mais on reste sur sa faim. Il me semble que Tokyo (et le Japon en général) regorge d'excentricités et d'excentriques diablement plus intéressants et singuliers...mais bon.

In one sense, the film(?) does do that. It also has a unique...so...Japanese way of delivering the goods. That is..the concept is not a linear documentary, but you seem to travel via subway and JR to the various famous districts of Tokyo. You even get to ride on the trains, exit the stations as if you were there...cool...But on the neg. I found the ALL PLAY option only by accident, which, if I want to see a sequence again is a must. There is no chapter menu. The segments are only shown as little icons. The train icon(s) will take you to another part of Tokyo. Then there are sub-icons of the various street scenes...
I guess if you can read a Japanese newspaper, it will be a piece of cake. But to my less than excellent Japanese reading skills, it is bothersome. (no, it is not written in Japanese, but you have to "think" Japanese to understand it.
The clips themselves can be very interesting or somewhat boring. Some too short, and some too long. It is a matter of taste. I like the musical street acts. The a capella girls were great. The rock band played too long. I didn't really care for the hip-hop dancers, and the guy that did the torch thing went on too long. The street artist in Harajuku was good. The Rockabilly guys were trying hard...
I thought the fashion show ludicrous, with a forced, "hey look at me" attitude..pricy, but totally clueless designers, while the kids in Harajuku were real...more cutting edge and fun.
I almost fell asleep when the girl was getting her hair cut, as with the long segment of video gamers. At the end of it all, I was wishing the train would take me to my little flat on Omotesando, but instead I ended up right back where I started....
All in all, a good effort, but I can recommend this only if you have no idea about Tokyo at all, or haven't seen much better documentaries about Japan. If you can pick this up on sale for a few bucks..get it, it's artsy enough, but as a film documentary, it's more like someone was just walking around Tokyo turning on their camcorder when they bumped into something interesting.
