Strange art film from Japan about a woman who can make it rain when she gets emotional. She meets a pyromaniac and they strike up a strange relationship. All this symbolism about fire and water was a bit heavy handed but it did intrigue me. Oddball stuff that caught me off guard.I saw it at a film festival and knew nothing about it beforehand. Not a lot of dialogue so it was one of these films where you had to watch the images carefully to know what was happening. It was actually propelled by the visuals rather than dialogue. Interesting but not for everyone. I'd actually like to see it again because I think there was more to it than met the eye and it deserves more than one viewing .
