One of the best movies ever to come out of Japan
24 April 2001 | by GothzillaSee all my reviews

This year during the Danish "Natfilm" festival i was eyewitness to one of the best movies ever to come out of Japan.

The story of a hardworking television-editor (played by Hitomi Kuroki) who has her own opinion of the truth in the stories she´s working on, get´s trapped in her very own spell, when a man gives her.............. That´s enough for now. There´s no need to tell more from the movie but the way it ends is in my opinion one of the most surprising (and best) endings I have seen in a very long time.

The worst thing that could happen to this movie, is that some "fool" in Hollywood decides to make an American remake. Why I say that is because when you have seen the original you don´t want it to get spoiled by "the true American standard for remaking good movies and turning them bad" organisation.
