What's that movie called?

I'm trying to remember a movie I saw years ago but can't remember the name.

It's from the 1980s and it's about a Japanese girl who moves to NYC. She works in a Japanese restaurant downtown and befriends the eccentric locals. It's got a very 80s, downtown, punk/New Wave kind of vibe.

Any ideas?

With the exception of the Japanese angle, it sounds a little like "Times Square"

That's not it.

It also had twin boys - one of whom died. And a large sea turtle.

I think I know the movie you're thinking about but wasn't it about a Japanese guy?

No, it was a girl.

It wasn't Times Square. There were no twins or turtles.

It was a very lighthearted film. Kind of indie.

It just came to me. It's called Living On Tokyo Time.

Cute movie. I'm going try to find if again.

No, that's not it. It was called The Other.

If I can intrude, I have a movie I've been trying to reconnect with but can't remember the name.

It was a movie where two guys have obviously slept together after the one guy's bachelor party. They are talking about their relationship in a bedroom but they are no longer in the bed. The engaged one is closeted and wants to continue the sexual relationship with the other guy. As I recall, they were both in their late 30s or early 40s. I've tried googling some of these facts but haven't been able to find it. I think the movie was made after year 2000.

Sorry for the intrusion OP.

It's Lord of the Rings isn't it?

R9, it was definitely Bosom Buddies.

Oh and it wasn't NYC. It was SF.

"The Ring ??"

R8, you're thinking of "The Bad Place" by Dean Koontz - Paula Dean's bi-racial brother.

I think it was called "Come Back to the Five and Dime, Miyoshi Umeki Miyoshi Umeki."

Is it a film you directed? Acted in? Had a bit part?

R9 here. Thanks OP> Not Bosom Buddies but I was flipping through DirecTV movie channels a few years back and caught that scene I described between these two men. I just can't remember the movie name since I'd like to see the whole film.

R15, "Miyoshi Umeki" is always preceded by "the delicate, the flowerlike".
