Bright Future (2003)

Palm Pictures
Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Palm Pictures)

Two young, bored factory workers in Japan each plot to kill their boss without each other's knowledge. One of them succeeds and is sent to prison where he hangs himself. The other strikes up a friendship with his father where he learns the value of work. He tends to a jellyfish, symbolizing the "bright future" of youth, which escapes and reproduces in the vast canals of Tokyo. Slow moving and obvious drama, using some truly atrocious-quality videocam footage.
