A Meditation on Free Money
12 August 2015 | by roweriversSee all my reviews

How does free money affect people? That's the question director Yoshimitsu Morita proposes in this story. Maya (Koyuki) comes back to her hometown of Hakodate after several years in Tokyo. Her mother is in a coma in a high-tech hospital, so she plans to stay there for a while. She meets up with her classmates and gives them money to fulfill their dreams. That arouses suspicions and speculations. And for Maya, she finds giving money away won't always make the world a better place. Koyuki (The Last Samurai) gets deep into Maya's role. She turns off her glamor to portray Maya as a plain, slightly naive young woman. It's a pretty straightforward drama, but with a few directorial flourishes. Morita (The Family Game) makes use of several locations around Hakodate, too, giving it a peaceful, slightly detached feeling.
