Why does Miyuki prostitute herself? It has no mountain of debt or manipulative pimps. One reason may be escape. Like Miyuki she faces the prospect of endless resemblance, which is not helped by a needy ex-boyfriend who appears out of nowhere. Like Yuki, her persona deriheru, she can find a welcome oblivion, both erotically charged and dangerously degrading. But after two years in the game, she seems tired - and the oblivion of a more permanent type beckons. Based on his own novel, the film is full of characters and incidents, but does not turn into a docudrama or a production of "social problem" with its pure-hearted heroes and an obvious message. Instead, "Side Job" provides a narrative that remains true to the complex and not always uplifting reality of life in the disaster zone. And that makes it the best movie I've ever seen on the subject.
