A movie for those who don't need conclusive endings.
I liked this movie (7) for the kind of relatively slow-paced, minimalistic style that a certain type of Japanese movie has, and the fact that it escaped from the formula so often seen in Hollywood movies.
It definitely reminded me of the Kurosawa classic, "Rashomon" in that it presents various perspectives and possibilities, leaving the viewer to decide on their merits. Like Rashomon, there is a death involved, but the guilty party, or more to the point, who is most guilty, remains a mystery.
Well structured story line, tasteful cinematography, and a pretty cool soundtrack. Recommended.
