Unsettling thriller
30 August 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Far from one of the best J/ese films ever made, but still well worth watching.

Hitchcock's influence looms very large in this film. The story is basically a war of nerves between video editor Yoko Endo and suspected accomplice to murder Kimiko Asao. The see-sawing between them, augmented by the actions of a few characters more peripheral, keeps the story steadily moving along and very well holds the interest.

And, like Hitch, the film raises more than one edgy moral issue, and the washup is quite something.

Hitomi Kuroki is the star, and she does a creditable job. But Takanori Jinnai is simply stunning. The way this guy uses facial expression alone makes the film worth watching.

Definitely recommended. English title is "The Frame".
