Strange, But Oddly Compelling, 12 August 2008
Author: crossbow0106 from United States

Told like a fairy tale, this is a story about two elderly sisters who dig through trash cans for things (there must be 100 broken clocks in their mansion). One of their finds is a tilting toy with a girl's face, a doll. That night, they encounter a girl who is knitting a red sweater, for which it seems when she's finished she has to start all over again. The story tells of the relationship between her and the sisters, with some unusual links to their childhoods. This film is very unusual, its ideas are very out there, but its a well told story and the mix of live action, animation & puppets is definitely interesting. If you like quirky films, you'll like this. I want to also say that this was Kyoko Kashida's last film. She has had an interesting film career, actually making this film not so unusual a casting choice for her. She was a star of "Woman Of The Dunes" and "Mangi", both films done more than forty years before this one. Thank you for your gift to Japanese cinema Ms. Kashida, and may you rest in peace.
