God bless Japan
11 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

Oh yes my friends, this is a movie that could have been made only in one country on this beautiful planet - and that's exactly the country it WAS made in. Japanese filmmakers possess some really unique sensibilities and they can easily get away with things that could seem ridiculous when done by someone else - because they are not merely having fun, they mean it, man. See for yourself: this is a film that contains a very explicit scene of a girl's brain transplanted into a body of her evil mother (and WHAT a scene it is!) - and it isn't a first-class splatter-fest as you might think judging by this, but a psychological drama! Probably with a deep message...... I must admit that I'm not a true professional when it comes to Japanese movies en masse (that is to say that probably they are all like that...), but still this is a truly unique film that's definitely worth watching - of course, only if the sight of a skull getting opened by some bizzare heavy machinery and the brain getting dragged out is just your cup of tea....
