Storyline

When Ryo, a young magazine reporter, moves into a new apartment he is greeted by the passionate sounds of his astonishingly beautiful neighbor Satsuki. Realizing the wall dividing their apartments is paper thin, the captivated journalist begins to eavesdrop on every detail of the girl next door's life: her conversations, her bubble baths... her breathless cries. While Ryo's fantasies escalate into something bordering on love and obsession, Satsuki becomes increasingly hysterical over the bizarre and dirty phone calls terrorizing her every night. When their lives finally converge delusions and reality blur forcing the unthinkable to happen. Written by Ricochet Releasing

prejudice about Japan turned art-house movie
20 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

This one got me by surprise. Although it plays on some general misconceptions, if not prejudice, about Japanese, it offers a very interesting take on human relations.

A guy moves into an apartment and meets an attractive neighbor living in the flat next to his. He becomes obsessed with her and stalks her with some audio equipment.

With time we meet her boyfriend who is a control freak. It is not clear whether he simply stalks the girlfriend or whether it is their role play, yet she is submissive and accepts the relationship as it is.

So, there are two guys stalking a girl, but only one can win her heart.
