Three of world cinema’s great visionaries: Michel Gondry (Be Kind Rewind, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind), Leos Carax (The Lovers On The Bridge, Pola X), and Bong Joon-ho (The Host) each direct a segment of this surreal triptych film, set in the ultra-modern Japanese metropolis, Tokyo.
Rhapsody, psychogeography, urban valentine, freak show, mindwalk and many other things, Tokyo is a fantasy in three movements that will make you see one of the world’s greatest cities – if not any city – with a new point of view.
In the tradition of such films as New York Stories, Night On Earth, Paris Je T’aime and its forthcoming sequel New York I Love You, Tokyo! addresses the timeless question of whether we shape cities, or if cities shape us – while in the process, revealing the rich humanity at the heart of modern urban life. The surreal world of Tokyo! utilizes some inspired visual effects and animation.
