Amateur effort is all talk, no incident
19 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

YAMAMOTO ERI BECOMES RECOVERABILITY ZERO deserves kudos for having perhaps one of the most bizarre titles in the whole history of cult cinema, but sadly the film itself is a real slog to sit through. This is a micro-budget story about citizens coping in the wake of a man-made disaster, centred around a girl who has been infected with the 'mad man disease' which causes unforeseen results in its victims.

The film is a mix of social drama and detective story. The early parts chart the progress of a couple of investigators trying to solve the mystery of the titular character's disappearance while the latter parts move into social territory and focus on a single family striving to cope. This amateur film is so cheap that there's nothing in the way of action or incident, instead events are merely talked about by other characters.

As a result it's hardly a very enjoyable film at all, although I do appreciate the sentiments behind it. As usual, there's subtext here, namely Japan's treatment of those classed as 'other', specifically its handling of the mentally ill. The ending offers up a shocking twist which reminded me of AUDITION, but sadly it's hardly a great pay-off for what is a tough and often dull film to explore.
