Alien’s Daydream

地球星人(エイリアン)は空想する

Nippon Visions   ½ 

Working as a reporter for a profit-driven tabloid magazine, Uto examines UFO sightings and alien abductions in the small town of Hakui. There, he meets the mysterious young woman Noa, uncovers the deeds of a radical sect, and his investigations take all kinds of surprising twists. Yoshiki MATSUMOTO’s debut film is a self-ironic and socially relevant sci-fi comedy.
