Title says it all, really. We’ve been aware for a while now that quirky Korean actress Bae Doo-Na (The Host, Linda Linda Linda) would be teaming up with Japanese director Kore-Eda (Hana, Nobody Knows). What we didn’t know was that the film - adapted from a manga by Yoshiie Goda - would feature Bae as an inflatable sex doll who becomes conscious and strikes up a relationship with her owner, a video store clerk played by Ping Pong‘s Arata. Susumu Terajima, Jo Odagiri and Ryo Iwamatsu also star.
