Moketi: Love Strikes

Moketi: Love Strikes is a 2011 Japanese comedy nominated for numerous Japanese Awards and winning the Most Popular Film. Its Canadian premiere was recently held at the 2012 Toronto Japanese Film Festival held at the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre (JCCC) in Toronto.


The story is about a 30 year old loser (nerd) who suddenly becomes irresistible to women, this phase in a man’s life is called Moteki. Not really a musical (although it has a J-Pop soundtrack), it sometimes breaks into random singing and dancing. I guess this type of movie is very popular in Japan, I found it a little disjointed (maybe because of the random musical numbers).
