I saw this at the Berlinale and was deeply disappointed. Actors rarely make
for good directors, and Momoi is no exception. Some interesting ideas, some
clever, quirky moments, but they just failed to add up to a satisfying film.

This is the first I've heard about Momoi's film.  I look forward to hearing 
more about what this interesting veteran actress has accomplished as a 
neophyte director.  (and wondering if I will ever actually get a chance to 
see for myself)
