JAPAN CUTS 2015 review — MAKEUP ROOM
A new Review by Tanimaru:
MAKEUP ROOM starts off as if you are watching the surveillance camera of a room that will soon become the makeup room and dressing area for a typical Japanese “adult video”.
What happens in a slow but entertaining pace is the life of the people who work in this world – the young woman who perform sex, the crew, and the central figure – Make-san, the makeup artist. There are delays and faux pas’ throughout the shoot, but the film just grows on you and we don’t want the shoot to end.
What was also done in a teasing way is the use of nudity – very much in your face in a real adult video, but in this film, off camera, the women are almost shy and reserved.
Like the film BE MY BABY that begins with a typical gathering of today’s young people in Japan, this film also shows us the side we don’t get to see – the real struggle of young people to carve out a living in post bubble Japan.
