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

Quirky, amusing, original and fun
28 September 2013 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

When Ryo, a journalist, moves into a new flat, the paper-thin wall separating them grants him access into the life of his cute, down-to earth neighbour.

As curiosity gives way to spying, so too does his loneliness become obsessive, as she becomes almost a scientific study project... but soon, mere stalking isn't enough, and he wants to get to know the girl who lives behind the wall.

As they become closer though, Ryo is confused as to his feelings, unable to connect the bubbly woman he considers a friend, with the faceless, fantasy one who lives the other side of the wall.

Voyeurism, romance, bizarre sexual kicks... if you want to see something different, fresh and surprisingly unoffensive, given its perverse theme, then I would recommend this.

The best film venturing "off-the-beaten-track" that I've seen in a long time.
