Critic Reviews for Asako I & II (Netemo sametemo)
There's just not a lot going on underneath the surfaces of these characters' sensitive, precise, and modestly expressed feelings.
"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.
This is a film that, through its deceptively mellow means, manages to plumb the depths of what it truly means to love amid the uncertainties of self, others, and everything else besides.
Brilliant melodramatic flourishes adorn the blank center of this passionate fable, directed by Ryûsuke Hamaguchi.
There are moments of real beauty in the film, which is an unassuming and contemplative excursion into how we love, and why. But like the fireworks that greet Asako and Baku's first kiss, its pop is a modest one.
