Critic Reviews for Ai to makoto (The Legend of Love & Sincerity)

All Critics (2)

Takashi Miike directs another absurd amalgam of different genres, where hyperbole in both the narrative and the production values seems to be the rule

A very entertaining action musical romance film and if you are willing to accept the baggy story and a certain level of distance from the characters there is still a great deal left to enjoy.

Audience Reviews for Ai to makoto (The Legend of Love & Sincerity)

"For Love's Sake" is a film with the true Miike style that I like to see in any of his films. The Story is centered around a devil may care boy; Makoto who has a stern attitude and agressive behaviour, and a wealthy, pretty, naive girl; Ai whose in love with Makoto and will do anything to see him live a plesent and happy life. Lots of other characters play their roles in the story, conflicting with a very comical and halarious situations/plots, but its also dark and unerving at times. Miike is best known for semiotic extreme violence, sexaul perversions, black humour, etc. It may seem outragious but it incredibly entertaining, and Miike makes it work. "For Love's Sake" mainly feels like a comedy romance, but also includes musical numbers, sentimental drama and Miike's semiotic violent codes. Its much more recomended to if you've never seen any of his films, while fellow fans will definately not be dissapointed. Final thoughts: For Love's Sake is funny, heart warming, thrilling and a great piece of entertainment from such a prolific Japanese film-maker.
