Feast of the Ants
This article is from 2008.
This overlong Japanese comedy is too bogged down in moral messages to be enjoyable. The inhabitants of Arizuka Town are presented as brimming over with foolishness and cowardice. It's a premise that makes for a tedious play, though the exquisite lighting and vivid costumes mean that at least it's nice to look at.
