In a remote town, the shabby Hotel Venus is a mecca for the emotionally wounded. Chonan (Kusanagi Tsuyoshi), the resident of the attic room, works as a waiter in the cafe, and as a handyman for the hotel. Simply cooking and cleaning every day, Chonan cannot get over his past. Through interaction with the other residents, though, and the necessity to stand up as a man, Chonan begins to change...

This film is one of those piece of art, which leaves in consciousness for the whole life. In a strange alienated world there are a hidden "Hotel Venus", harbouring some strange human beings. They are alone, but want to break a distance to each other.

The movie was filmed in Vladivostok, but this is NOT a film about Vladivostok. This is an existential parable. It has soft images, but it affects the subconsciousness with strong emotional power.

The soundtrack is also great, but it has some suspicious similarities with Boris Grebenshchekov (Russian music band "Akvarium"). I hope, this is not a plagiarism, but a variation of his theme.

I've heard of this movie so many times, but never got to see it. It's cool how they all speak in Korean, but why do they? Are they playing Koreans or is it just to give the movie a certain feel? Anyway, I really wanna see this. =/
