Hmmmm...., 12 September 2008
Author: Frederik (freddie@bjorlie.dk) from Denmark

I have never seen a movie by this director before, but must admit that I thought that I knew a lot about Japanese cinema! Apparently I do not, because this movie is one of the most unique ones that I have seen to date. I was not impressed by the acting at all, but there were some really beautiful images.

I just thought the movie as a whole, was way to short for it's own good. I didn't understood the need for it to be like that. To me it seemed like that it repeated itself with the same narrative over and over again. I also couldn't stand the zoomed-in shaky cam, that was used during intense moments. It annoyed me, to no end.
