Review
A sublime film about the nature of loneliness told through the experience of the eponymous Tony Takitani. Brought up by his musician father, Tony lives a socially secluded life until he meets and falls in love with Eiko, a fashion-obsessed fitty, and the intimacy he shares with her is both tender and, ultimately, tragic. A remarkable film, meditatively paced, touchingly sincere with a fascinating aesthetic style, and the soundtrack is measured and judged to perfection. A deeply humane effort from Jun Ichikawa. I'll stop banging on about it now...
