Featured reviews for

Strawberry Shortcakes
Midnight Eye, by Paul Spicer source:
«As well as the simple but often clever narrative, what really does stand out from watching Strawberry Shortcakes are the performances of the actors, especially the four protagonists. Conversations are natural, responses are as you would expect not from watching a film, but from a documentary picture. It really is superbly played from beginning to end.»
Twitch, by Todd source:
«Yazaki films "Strawberry Shortcakes" almost like a documentary and his stark and blunt portrayals of sex and love remind me of Larry Clark's films such as "Ken Park" and "Kids". While the ending in particular did seem a bit contrived and some of the drama forced, I found "Strawberry Shortcakes" an interesting film and one which did make me care about these characters and the lives they lead. Life can be a bitch but perhaps surviving those rough spots are the true test of our character, our faith and hope.»
Lunapark6, by luna6 source:
«The manner in which “Strawberry Shortcakes” unfolded was a mixture of comedic scenes, somber scenes of isolation, and a handful of mildly explicit sexual scenes. The yearning that the four main leads held inside, was perhaps indicative of people living in such a large metropolis as Tokyo.While all four of the main characters battle familiar problems (loneliness, jealousy, unrequited love), you can’t help to be impressed with the small details (their apartments!) and unique style of the movie. Strawberry Shortcakes is one of the better films I have seen this year, check this one out.»
