Based on Yukio Okada's manga "Motel". "Seaside Motel" is a romantic-comedy that takes place over the course of one evening at the oddly named Seaside Motel. The motel is in fact surrounded by mountains with no water in sight. One evening smooth talking swindler Kamedara (Ikuta Toma) stops in for the night at the Seaside Motel.

A slow paced film that almost bored the hell out of me in the 65% duration of the show but the ending part was quite a revealer and made me change my mind about the whole idea of the movie.

What I liked about this was how everything coincided with each other on the ending part. Initially I watched the film because of Ikuta Toma being one of the characters but slowly, I realized that there are other veteran actors casted in this film which was quite surprising because I thought it was a really low budgeted film. Then again… that’s what they wanted the movie to seem like.

Over all, the movie was funny in some ways, confusing due to the fact that it made me guess some of the character’s real intentions. The sound track and the setting did make sense after finishing the 103 minutes run.

Unlike some of the other reviews, I found this move entertaining from beginning to end. It was funny and weird and original in many ways. I thought the way all the stories tied in together was very clever. I really love these types of movies.

The ending was really creative, though it took me about five minutes to understand it.

A good movie to watch alone.
