The erotic novelist Taeko is writing a morbid story of a family destroyed by incest, murder and abuse. Her assistant, Yuji, sets on a mission to uncover the reality of this story, but the reality might be too much to bear.
The story is about the daughter of a murderer and the daughter of the murdered house coping with this horrible past. I thought this story was great because it kept me guessing. The movie might be slow but I didn't fall asleep. There isn't much cliché in the story which is good. The title Shinku, which means Crimson, has a deep meaning, I suppose. The color in the movie was carefully picked out. I suppose it's got some sort of hidden message. The ending was uncalled for. I was totally unprepared for that scene and I thought it was the a brilliant finale. I recommend this movie and I give it an 8 out of 10. I like it when people are working hard and make the plots as flawless as possible. I can't say the actresses are the best in the world, but that part made it seem even more sincere. Horray!
