Storyline

Tomiko is a conductor in a rural bus driven by the handsome Niitaka. Tomiko had received a letter from her best friend Tsuyako, a conductor in another bus company, just after Tsuyako was killed in a bus accident. Tsuyako wrote that she felt that her fiance and driver, Niitaka, planned to kill her. Tomiko therefore plans to take revenge on Niitaka. However Tomiko falls in love with Niitaka, even though she also suspects him of being the Tokyo bus driver serial killer, who killed his female conductors after tiring of them.

A perfect succession of images about the mystery in love
9 February 2007 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

One of the best psychological thrillers i've ever seen. Not only the slow, yet tensioned rhythm, but all the symbolic scenes make a continuous symphony out of this movie. There are many moments of complete silence that make you really "visually feel" the emotion. The editing helps arousing a great dynamic ambiance in the train scenes. The directing skills demonstrate once again the deepness in the Asian film school, the finesse in cinematographic language. I had some revelations watching this movie in what regards the way you make the beginning of a movie . The beginning (first 15 minutes) of the film is colossal. Must see for those who want to learn how to make tensioned films.
