Not every city ode has to be steeped in love and mainstream appeal, which is probably why Tokyo! isn't getting half the love that Paris, je t'aime got. But it should. Oh yes, it should. Above you can see the trailer for the film that will be released in New York on March 6, and in Los Angeles and nationwide on March 20.
It's not exactly like the Paris and upcoming New York versions. There are only three directors for this puppy, and they're directors known for their original visions -- Michel Gondry (Be Kind Rewind) heads "Interior Design," Leos Carax (Pola X) heads "Merde," and Bong Joon-ho (The Host) heads "Shaking Tokyo." If that's not enough to sway you, check this: Gondry's segment is about a girl who metamorphoses into something very unexpected, Carax follows a "shit" creature who terrorizes Tokyo whilst wearing a green corduroy suit, and Joon-ho's centers on an agoraphobic man who falls in love with a pizza delivery woman during an earthquake.
All set in Tokyo. What could be better?
