I think this movie can really make you think about the endless twists life can take when you least expect... 5 episodes in one single movie, every time new characters reveal their inner hidden true self. A good selection of Japanese directors. Most of the time, the characters meet each other, remember thing they thought lost forever, becoming friends and not least becoming aware of the power of seduction of the Other. Of course you have to be a fan of Japanese cinema in order to better perceive the selected short movies. i must say that i love this title because it made me somehow ask myself the questions implied by the movie itself. Although you can 't watch this movie as a regular movie, and the stories not seem to be related, i couldn't stop till the end, because it makes you wonder what story is going to be next, what dramas are in line to be presented.
