Platonic Sex
(overall rating: 3.2 out of 5 based on 2 reviews)
beyondhollywood.com, by Nix source: http://www.beyondhollywood.com/platonic-sex-2001-movie-review/
«“Platonic Sex” is not the happiest movie in the world. It’s a sometimes too bleak (but very honest) look at Japanese society, at the life of an average Japanese youth, and at whatever limited possibilities that exists in the world for people like Ai, who has no direction whatsoever. ... Despite its title and subject matter, “Platonic Sex” is not about sex. The film is about acceptance and self-realization, not skin.»
dvdactive, by Casimir Harlow source: http://www.dvdactive.com/reviews/dvd/platonic-sex.html
«Platonic Sex is a harrowing tale of the survival on the streets. Even if it is never a particularly pleasant watch, it manages to remain compelling to the end, not least because of a fantastic debut performance by the lovely Saki Kagami. »
Hong Kong Digital source: http://www.dighkmovies.com/v3/178/178.html
«First time actress Saki Kagami is remarkable as Aoi; she not only has the necessary look but also communicates volumes with her eyes and face. Even while the story touches on all of the adversities one would expect a girl in her situation to confront, Kagami still engages one's sympathy without being flagrant. Her performance is almost matched by Abe, whose unsavory eccentric derives great pleasure from seeing how people will lower themselves in pursuit of his money.»
