Trivia:
The film's title has two origins. Firstly in the film, the apartment where everything occurs is numbered 2LDK. Secondly in Japan it is a way of describing the apartment. The number of bedrooms, L = Living Room, D = Dining Room, K = Kitchen So therefore 2LDK. Apartment sizes start at 1R (A studio with integrated kitchen) and go up.See more »

Shows how much a person can get on another's nerves., 11 September 2004
Author: roldog27 from USA

This was a well acted, nicely paced story of two opposite roommates, competing for the same part in a movie. The story develops as we hear their thoughts and discover how much they hate each other, despite their politeness to each other. Tensions rise as the poorer, more homely, neat-freak confronts the wealthier, more sexually-experienced, relaxed princess about breaking house "rules." Attacks start out with mind games, to implied verbal slights, to overt insults, and then to ever-escalating physical assaults. This film is wild. It's funny in how much they hate each other, and how far they go, non-stop. If you can't find humor in violence, don't bother watching this. While this film goes deeply into mental, emotional, social conflict-- it is a fight movie. So don't expect Shakespeare! Also not a complex film: only two adept actresses in the same condo the whole movie. This simplicity made me like the film more. Unique. The only thing I could compare this to would be an American film called "Tape" which, while not violent, only involved 3 actors (Ethan Hawke, Uma Thurman, and ?) in one hotel room, brooding over mental-psychological conflicts.
