Watch All God's Children Can Dance - Alternative Versions.
In 2004, veteran Japanese director Jun Ichikawa took one of the best
short stories in Murakami's collection, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman,
and crafted a masterpiece of a film, perfectly capturing the themes of
loneliness and isolation, with a great score, acting and
cinematography. I strongly recommend it to everyone.
How woeful it is then that newbie American director Robert Logevall,
has taken, in my opinion, the worst story in Murakami's collection,
after the quake, and turned it into a dull, aimless film that manages
to be both vacuous and pretentious. We follow Kengo (Jason Lew), a
mixed race man, who has been told all his life that he is the Son of
God by his vaguely disturbed mother (Joan Chen), as he negotiates his
relationship with his girlfriend (Sonja Kinski) and boss (Tzi Ma).
Kengo has lost his faith in God and his belief in his implied divinity.
One day he sees a man he believes is his father. He follows him.
It's Jason Lew's first role, so his falterings as a lead are
understandable, but I found him irritating and smug as his character,
and uncomfortable to watch. Sonja Kinski is decent in her first role,
but really it's Chen and Ma that give the only good performances in
this film. The former with wonderful emotion, and the latter with
remarkable subtlety and understatement. Both keep afloat a film that
fails to explore any interesting themes it brings up (Oedipal
complexes, religion), nor manages to deliver any interesting scenes
whatsoever. The narration that aims high for philosophy but spews out
drivel doesn't help, neither does the over ambiguous ending that fails
to capture the existentialism of the story and just seems stupid.
It's not all bad. There's some nice cinematography, Chen and Ma's
performances are genuinely wonderful, and the soundtrack by STS9, is
lovely. But this is an unremarkable film, with little to recommend,
even to Murakami fans. Watch Tony Takitani instead, and hold your
breath for the eventual Norwegian Wood adaptation.
