Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:
2000
Rating:
Not Available
Two brothers want to get their screwed-up lives together by going to Japan for a retreat in a Zen monastery. En route, their midlife crisis turns into a midnight crisis when they get lost in Tokyo's neon jungle and can't find the way back to their hotel. It's down and out in Asia's brave new world. With no credit cards, directions, and with no Yen in their pockets, they wander through an alien environment where the simplest everyday thing becomes a major, if often comical, challenge.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    As funny as it is nourishing, and it has stellar performances from Uwe Ochsenknecht and Gustav Peter Wohler, who play off each other like Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau.

  • 75

    San Francisco Chronicle Bob Graham

    It is a warm, closely observed satire of lived life, and it is a charmer.

  • 70

    Variety David Rooney

    Ochsenknecht and Wohler are a strong double act, displaying exemplary comic timing and making the brothers a problem-plagued but likable pair.
