Hi, I'm new in this community but I was hoping someone could help me remember a movie title. It came out a few years ago, was set in Tokyo, and had a number of story lines running through it. One was about a young middle eastern laborer trying to save money up to go home. Eventually he shoots/murders his middleman who is trying to rip him off. Another was about an old woman going blind and trying to navigate around the city (the main metaphor I think). That'a about all I can remember. Any ideas?

Also, what did you guys think of Tokyo Decadence? In light of this new Sean Lennon effort (scary!) how did Murakami do on his own in your opinion? Thanks!

That was it! Thanks, especially since I realize that my summary was pretty vague and off the mark. It was directed by Masashi Yamamoto.
