A must-see for fans of Shunji Iwai
20 September 1999 | by obsidian-8See all my reviews

This is a really great movie. The first few minutes are one long shot without any cut...and it tells a story covering several days! But not only the style is worth looking as the character development reaches an intensity only to be seen in Asian movies (this is my totally subjective point of view). The story itself deals with a young girl getting adopted by a family that holds her like a slave and then being "freed" by a young man working for this family´s company. 10 years later she gets involved in the murder of one of her step-sisters. This movie will please all the fans of films like "Swallowtail Butterfly" or even "Hana-Bi".
