The Great Happiness Space (2006)

Tale of an Osaka Love Thief
Directed by Jake Clennell

This is the movie on love and capitalism that Godard wishes he could make, a documentary on people who work at host clubs in Japan and their clients.  It questions the price of happiness and the cost of dreams of love.  The hyperreal can be seen everyday at Rakkyo Café.

It can be seen on Netflix streaming here. Review from Jamie S. Rich at DVD Talk and Amoeblog. 
Film reviews in fifty words (2011).
