Website IMDB

This is the debut feature film of Takeshi Maruyama, director of MONDO GROSSO’s one-shot music video “Labyrinth.” The “Spaghetti Code” in the title of the film comes from programming slang for code that is difficult to understand and extend so it becomes impossible for other programmers to collaborate on the project (source).

Synopsis: 13 young people living in Tokyo find themselves connected by chance or circumstance as they search for love and light in tough circumstances. Some of these stories include a singer-songwriter who has given up on her dreams and now spends time lazing around with friends, a delivery worker aiming to make 1000 deliveries in order to kill his feelings for his favourite idol, an escort who can’t seem to find love, a high school couple pondering suicide, a photographer desperate to make it big and getting crushed by a celebrity, and a part-time worker hopelessly attached to a married man. Each character is struggling to overcome their limitations, each intertwined by the same desire for love, understanding and connection.
