Japanese Story stars Toni Collette and Gotaro Tsunashim. Its been receiving pretty good reviews in Australian papers, but I’m afraid I found it rather slow.

The basic plot is about a Japanese man visiting the outback of Australia who falls in love with an Australian woman. There were some good things about the movie – the first half was interesting. The interaction between Japanese and Australian cultures was interesting, some amazing Aussie outback scenery (its my favourite part of the world) and a few mildly amusing scenes made me chuckle. It was ok until they fell in love – and then I’m afraid I began to doze. Toni was good, but the characters all seemed underdeveloped but the plot …well it lost the plot. 5 out of 10.
