Critic Reviews for Asako I & II (Netemo sametemo)

All Critics (45) | Top Critics (14)

[A] peculiarly potent story about life's unexpected little ruptures - those odd coincidences, repetitions and shifts in perspective that can set off aftershocks in the human heart.

The movie keeps you guessing, mostly in pleasure, at both its meanings and its methods.

Top Critic

Asako's only appeal seems to be that she's very pretty. Her depth of character she apparently keeps to herself.

June 19, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Hamaguchi keeps us guessing as to whether the characters' longings are innate or instilled by something beyond them and us.

June 6, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There's just not a lot going on underneath the surfaces of these characters' sensitive, precise, and modestly expressed feelings.

May 17, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

"Asako" proceeds from a premise that flirts with the mystic, but Hamaguchi executes it with elegantly rendered realism... The result is a picture that is simultaneously engaging and disconcerting.
