In company-owned rabbit-hutch apartments live tenants who can't afford to live anywhere else, and the apartment complex in which high-school girl Hatsumi Narita lives is ruled over by the rumor mongering, self-righteous Mrs. Tachibana. Get on Tachibana's bad side, and life becomes hell. When Hatsumi has to buy a pregnancy test because her popular sister Akane is late, Mrs. Tachibana's son, Ryoki, who used to bully Hatsumi as a kid, promises not to tell the world about Hatsumi's secret, only if she becomes his slave. Suddenly Azusa, Hatsumi's protector in their youth, reappears to save her again! He's moving back into the neighborhood! Despite the budding romance between Hatsumi and Azusa, Ryoki has control over her through the secret that could ruin the lives of everyone in Hatsumi's family, and he hasn't forgotten who his slave is! (Source: VIZ Media) ~~ Adapted from the manga "Hot Gimmick" by Miki Aihara. Edit Translation

I had no idea what to expect when I first watched this movie, it had popped up on my recommendations on Netflix so I thought why not?

I was sadly mistaken, once I had looked up the full story of the manga (about half way through the movie) I noticed that there was a fair amount missing plot wise - although not vital to the plot, but it would have explained some things a bit better, and that the plot itself was kinda dodgy anyways.

Now, don't get me wrong, I have watched quite a few dramas and movies where you sit there and think what on earth have I just watched & how did they get away with it, but this movie seems to gloss over certain aspects of people's characteristics to make them 'loving'.

I however, cannot fault the cinematography of the movie, I thought that this was beautiful. If you want to watch a movie purely for research on cinematography I would definitely recommend, I just wouldn't recommend the movie for the plot.

What. Did. I. Just. Watch?

I’ll repeat it to myself because I still do not understand. What did I just sit here for two hours and watch?

Have you ever loved a show so much that after it finished, you watched highlight compilation videos on Youtube? Maybe that’s just me. But THIS movie, is exactly what one of the Youtube videos feels like, but without the context of actually watching the show.

The entire movie jumped from scene to scene without context, explanation, motive, character development…. Nothing. And because of that, nothing really made sense at all. Side note. Why did the soundtrack pretty much only consist of this lullaby tune they tried to make into some sort of edgy score to the movie?! IT IS A LULLABY. No… Just no.

However, I have to say that most of the moments in the movie were quite intense and many were very interesting. They should redo this and make it into a 30 episode drama and I’m in for it. But as it stands watching it will simply confuse you. Most likely frustrate you. And definitely leave you staring at the screen, if you make it through to the credits wondering, ‘What did I just watch?’.
