There's much tongue in cheek in the film and there's no doubt the filmmaker is having fun with it all.
A charming, quirky and leisurely paced Scottish comedy -- except with an outrageous central gimmick that could have been a reject from Monty Python's Meaning of Life.
Imamura's delight in the infinite oddity of men and women is goofy; it's also, at heart, reverent.
Imamura has said that Warm Water Under a Red Bridge is a poem to the enduring strengths of women. It may also be the best sex comedy about environmental pollution ever made.
New York Observer:
Combines a comically dismal social realism with a farcically bawdy fantasy of redemption and regeneration.
Nonchalantly freaky and uncommonly pleasurable, Warm Water may well be the year's best and most unpredictable comedy.
