Furiko, meaning “pendulum,” shows the highs and lows of a family of two—a high schooler, and his future wife, whom he rescues from delinquents. From the brilliant mind of comedian Tekken, comes a heartwarming story of a couple overcoming their differences even as they struggle through life. Not a moment goes by without meaning or expression in these three minutes.

Furiko is what some people would consider a perfect film because it technically had no flaws. I completely disagree, this was a really bad film.

The first issue was that it was three minutes. Three minutes isn’t enough time to get attached to anything and therefore the payoffs later in the film don’t matter much because these are people you’ve just met.

In terms of plot, it could only really be done in its unique style and was nice enough but had little interest or emotion relating to me.

Another thing to this show’s disadvantage is that the art style sucks and relies on the gimmick of a clock turning.

I would never call this bad but it’s definitely no masterpiece and is very impactful. I think about my top shows every day because they relate so much to my experiences and character – this film doesn’t do that for me and failure to do that is what makes it a 9 at best though in reality I think it’s a 3.

Watch this because it’s one of the better short films but it’s still a short film which is difficult to get invested in.
