YesAsia Editorial Description

From Watashi no Akachan to Booth to Route 225, director Nakamura Yoshihiro has shown that he is a master at subverting reality, and his method is disarming, both gradual and sudden. In Nakamura's films, the other creeps up on viewers so surely and unassumingly that when things come to light, reality reverses, as if it is the protagonist and the audience that have somehow misunderstood the situation. Based on a bestselling Isaka Kotaro novel, Nakamura's latest film has the same topsy-turvy quality in its story and storytelling method, already apparent in its puzzling title Ahiro to Kamo no Coin Locker, a.k.a. The Foreign Duck, The Native Duck and God in a Coin Locker. Intriguing, engaging, and at times outright baffling, the film unfolds over six very busy days, enthusiastically leading the audience on a wild duck chase for something unknown. Gamely along for the ride are the youthful cast of Eita (Su-ki-da), Hamada Gaku (Catch a Wave), Matsuda Ryuhei (Nightmare Detective), Seki Megumi (Honey & Clover), and Tamura Kei (Battle Royale II).

Moving into his new apartment in Sendai, college student Shiina (Hamada Gaku) meets his new neighbor Kawasaki (Eita). Tall, confident Kawasaki and short, mild-mannered Shiina seem to be unlikely candidates for friendship, but they click over a mutual interest in Bob Dylan. Kawasaki is an odd duck, but in an irresistibly cool and charming kind of way, and Shiina can't help but be drawn into his more exciting, if slightly loony world. Kawasaki's head is full of unpredictable ideas, like his absurd warnings about pet shop owner Reiko (Otsuka Nene) or his even more absurd plan to steal a dictionary for their Butanese neighbor. Next thing Shiina knows, he's standing watch with a toy gun outside the bookstore, on the beginning of their bizarre, existential adventure.

    영화 <집오리와 들오리의 코인로커>는 현재 일본을 비롯하여 국내에서도 큰 인기를 구가하는 초호화 출연진 캐스팅으로 화제가 되었다.

    - 스크린에 옮겨진 소설 특유의 섬세한 매력!!
    감독은 원작의 문장 표현이 워낙 섬세해서 영화화하기 힘들 것이라는 주변의 의견에도 불구하고 직접 각본을 집필하는 열성을 보이며 작업에 몰두했다. 그리고 작가는 완성된 영화를 감상한 뒤 “미스터리한 소설의 느낌이 잘 표현됐다”며 만족감을 표현했다고 한다.

    - 원작자 ‘이사카 코타로’도 격찬한 영화 소설의 세계를 드라마틱하고 현실감있게 그려내다!

    젊은 지성파 작가 ‘이사카 코타로’의 소설 <명랑한 갱이 지구를 움직인다>, <칠드런>에 이어 세 번째로 영화화 된 <집오리와 들오리의 코인로커>는 젊은이들의 우정과 사랑을 그리고 있다. 삶에 대한 진지한 통찰력과 메시지를 전하며 작가의 전작 <중력 삐에로>와 함께 최고의 대표작으로 손꼽히는 <집오리와 들오리의 코인로커>. 영화는 소설 특유의 섬세한 감성을 그대로 담아내며 소설만큼 디테일한 표현이 돋보이는 영상으로 태어났다. “작품 속의 대사를 그대로 영화에 사용해줘서 정말 기뻤습니다. 세계관을 공유하고 있는 느낌이랄까. 저는 영화를 보고 책의 한 부분을 고쳐 쓰기도 했답니다. 시나리오를 봤을 때부터 마음에 들었습니다만 완성된 영화가 정말 훌륭하다고 생각합니다.” _ 원작자 ‘이사카 코타로’ 이사카 코타로가 거주하고 있는 센다이 시를 배경으로 한 소설은 영화에서도 올 로케이션을 거쳐 만들어졌다. 대도시에서 느낄 수 없는 소도시만의 특별한 감성을 최대한 살리는데 주력했고, 소설 속의 소소하고 유니크한 느낌을 영상으로 표현하는데 완벽하게 성공했다. 드라마틱하고 미스터리한 소설의 느낌이 잘 표현된 영화는 원작자 ‘이사카 코타로’가 올해 최고의 영화라고 격찬하기도 하였다.

    - ‘밥 딜런의 목소리는 신의 목소리야’
    극중 가와사키의 대사처럼 밥 딜런의 노래 ‘Blowin’ in the wind’는 영화 속에서 특별한 의미를 지닌다. 가와사키는 시나가 부르는 노랫소리를 듣고2년 전 가슴 아픈 기억을 떠올리고, 밥 딜런의 목소리를 닮은 그와 친구가 된다. 예상치 못한 반전에도 불구하고 스토리에 자연스럽게 스며드는 멜로디는 들을 때마다 새로운 느낌을 선사하며 영화의 한 축을 담당한다. 밥 딜런의 조용하게 타이르는 듯한 목소리와 잔잔한 하모니카 선율이 돋보이는 노래 ‘Blowin’ in the wind’는 <집오리와 들오리의 코인로커> 안에서 상처받은 모두를 치유하는 힘을 가진다. 영화 내내 흐르는 ‘Blowin’ in the wind’의 따뜻한 선율은 영화가 끝난 후 관객들에게 더욱 큰 감동을 선사할 것이다.

    밥 딜런의 멜로디가 흐르면, 2년 전 그날의 기억이 찾아온다.

    대학 입학을 위해 센다이 시(市)로 이사 온 시이나는 자신이 가장 좋아하는 밥 딜런의 Blowin in the wind를 흥얼거리면서 짐 정리를 하는데, 노래를 따라부르는 이웃집 청년 가와사키를 만나게 된다. 괴짜 같은 가와사키는 이웃에 사는 부탄 출신 유학생 도르지가 일본에서 처음 사귀게 된 친구 둘을 동시에 잃은 슬픔을 위로하기 위해 일본어대사전을 훔쳐 선물하자는 황당한 제안을 한다. 얼떨결에 사건에 가담하게 된 시이나는 가와사키가 훔쳐 온 책이 일본어대사전이 아님을 알고 황당해하고, 우연히 알게 된 펫 숍 주인 레이코는 가와사키의 말을 믿지 말라고 시이나에게 경고를 한다. 그리고 시이나는 가와사키의 비밀 이야기를 알게 되는데...

    Professional Review of "Ahiru To Kamo No Coin Locker (DVD) (Special Edition) (Korea Version)"

    September 19, 2009

    This professional review refers to The Foreign Duck, The Native Duck and God in a Coin Locker (DVD) (English Subtitled) (Hong Kong Version)
    Yoshihiro Nakamura seems to relish a good narrative twist, recently employing a drawn-out but very satisfying reveal in his 2009 film Fish Story. Nakamura's 2007 effort The Foreign Duck, the Native Duck and God in a Coin Locker also possesses a sizable twist, but it's one in the service of a darker story than the witty optimism found in Fish Story. The reveal is a bit forced, and in retrospect is not as convincing as it should be. However, the emotions and characters work, making the whole package of Foreign Duck, Native Duck an entertaining and solid one.

    Gaku Hamada (also in Fish Story) stars as Shiina, a nebbish who arrives in Sendai to attend university. The locals seem unfriendly, but one day while humming Bob Dylan, Shiina meets irreverent slacker Kawasaki (Eita, from too many movies to mention), who quickly and enthusiastically introduces Shiina to his oddball world. Kawasaki wants Shiina to ride shotgun with him on a bookstore robbery, the spoils being a special dictionary for their Butanese neighbor Dorje (Kei Tamura), who's heartbroken after losing his girlfriend Kotomi (Megumi Seki). Adding to the convoluted character connections, Kotomi was also Kawasaki's ex.

    However, there are holes in Kawasaki's story. Local pet store owner Reiko (Nene Otsuka) warns Shiina not to buy into Kawasaki's tale tales, and he says the same thing about her. Shiina isn't sure who to believe, and sometimes plays dumb when talking to both sides, with neither side really fooled by his duplicity. Nobody seems to want to come clean, and Shiina's interest is further piqued when Kawasaki repeatedly drives off in the middle of the night, up to who knows what. It's ultimately up to Shiina, his naive decency, and some impromptu detective work to find out the truth.

    The film's title - relating to differing Japanese terms for ducks, plus one of the film's unique images - is cryptic but also a bit whimsical, belying the film's surprisingly dark content. The twist that Nakamura and co-screenwriter Kotaro Isaka (who also worked on Fish Story) drop on the audience feels earned, and it serves a very fine purpose, managing to excuse the film's rampant third act exposition as well as deepen not one but three of the film's characters. Nakamura employs plenty of flashbacks to fill in the blanks, but despite repeating some scenes, the flashbacks never feel indulgent or superfluous.

    Foreign Duck, Native Duck plays like a dry comedy before transforming into something heavier, and it's a change that surprisingly works. Nakamura draws out his scenes a bit, but his situations garner interest due to the characters and the various issues they face, such as Japanese xenophobia and instances of culture clash. Their issues also get layered into the film's events, cropping up unexpectedly and giving the narrative added resonance. The actors are effective, too; Hamada is a likable, decidedly dorky lead and Eita manages quirk and surprising charisma as ladykiller and would-be bookstore robber Kawasaki. It's Ryuhei Matsuda, however, who steals the show as a late-appearing character.

    Once the twists get revealed and explained, Foreign Duck, Native Duck immediately feels satisfying, and coasts off that emotion until its bittersweet end. However, upon reflection the film's twists don't feel entirely earned. Key characters and situations are not developed sufficiently, with some characters inexplicably concealing the truth from Shiina, prolonging the film's main reveal needlessly with their silence. That quibble about story convenience is a minor one, though; for a commercial film, The Foreign Duck, the Native Duck and God in a Coin Locker is quite satisfying, and should play well to audiences who can deal with its slow, generous pace and shifting, sometimes deceptive narrative. The way that it references Bob Dylan is fun, too.

    The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    "The Foreign Duck, the Native Duck and God in a Coin Locker" is all about sabotaging expectations. The film begins in a mostly light-hearted and quirky fashion, as nerdy college frosh Shiina meets his wildly coiffed and peculiar new neighbor Kawasaki. As they become acquainted, Shiina is fascinated by the stories Kawasaki tells about his life and the lives of their neighbors and acquaintances. However, after Shiina gets to know a moody pet shop owner named Reiko who cautions him against believing Kawasaki, Shiina begins to perceive that Kawasaki's stories don't quite add up. As Shiina begins to learn the truth about his unusual neighbor, the tone of the film changes into something much darker; what began as comedic becomes a story of animal abusers, a brave young woman, and a grief-driven yearning for revenge.

    Surprisingly, it all holds together and makes for quite compelling viewing. While I believe that the script would have benefitted from a little tightening, I was intrigued by this unusual film and can recommend it highly to all fans of offbeat cinema.
