It's like reading Anna Karenina...and it feels just as long...

My Wife and I are an American/Japanese couple. This movie should have connected with both of us, however it just fell flat with both of us. Neither of us recommend it.
Do you enjoy suicides and suicide attempts?
Do you hate comedies that are funny, but enjoy uncomfortable and awkward family drama of crazy people?
We would have had sympathy for the characters, we did have sympathy for one...but we couldn't have any sympathy for irresponsible and crazy people being irresponsible and crazy, like the movie wanted us to have.
Neither my wife or I enjoyed watching this movie...we didn't stop watching it, thinking that it might get better...but it didn't. It's not poorly made...just not good. We kept looking at each other, asking "what the hell", and shifting around uncomfortably.
This movie is a "comedy" in the same fashion as Tolstoy's book Anna Karenina; It is a "comedy" by means of not being a Shakespearean Tragedy. In the end, the main character isn't dead, so "comedy"?
"I don't know how to enjoy this movie at all."

probably not 5 stars for a general audience...

First of all, why is this film specified as comedy genre? There are some amusing parts, of course, but humor certainly is not the primary emphasis. It's actually quite touching in the way that it treats the messiness of individual and familial relationship dysfunction (for lack of a more nuanced term) in the modern world. Beyond that, it will entertain anybody who has interest and curiosity for the interplay of different cultures and the little threads of connection that are inevitably woven during that interplay.

I hate it when dramas get billed as comedies. This move has is NOT a comedy. False advertising!

Not what it is advertised as

The trailer is very misleading. It shows it as a lighthearted comedy, but it gets pretty twisted.

Delightfully Strange. Strangely Delightful
Verified purchase
There was a lot about this movie that I enjoyed that I didn't see coming. There was a lot I expected that I didn't see, and a lot I saw that I didn't expect. It was absolutely enjoyable and ridiculous, both believable and unbelievable at the same time.

I'll have to watch it again...

made absolutely no sense

There was nothing about this film that grabbed me. It was just one of those odd little films that Amazon Prime has an abundance of. My advice: Skip it. Go binge watch Forever with Maya Rudolf and Fred Armisen.
