Storyline

A voyeur (Masatoshi Nagase) secretly photographs a mysterious woman (Rie Miyazawa) from his stark apartment which faces hers. He becomes transfixed as he witnesses her go through her daily routines, and stacks videotape after videotape of the footage he takes. One day while following her, he comes across a bloody car wreck in which the victim crashed his luxury car into a guardrail. In the crowd of witnesses, he notices the woman he's been following and inadvertently releases the shutter of his camera, snapping photographs of her reaction. Later, he hands over a bag of videotapes to his client (Koji Yakusho) and asks him who the woman is. He is becoming totally obsessed with her, and their paths will soon cross again. Movie title "Gelatin Silver, Love" is in reference to the gelatin-silver process, a photographic process used with currently available black-and-white films and printing papers.

"Gelatin Silver Love" Based on script written by Mitsunori Gu of Cyborg She (novel) fame and directed by renowned photographer Kazumi Kurigami. In the story, a man keeps an eye on the room over the canal with his camera. A beautiful woman is in the sight of the lens. Everyday, he shoots the woman, who dressed like a fashion model when she goes out the room. One day, at the traffic accident scene, he comes across the woman watching a bloody victim of the accident and he is totally fascinated with her mysterious atmosphere. After that, he quit the shooting and now he start to chase her. . First of all this movie is not easy-watching its don't have many dialog. First dialog starts in 25min of movie, it also have this 80th, 90th American thriller soundtrack. Like in Law and Order and its kinda bothered me. Its not a pervert film there's no intense scenes or wide open nudity. but its 18yr. One good thing that attract my eyes is cinematography, it is nicely filmed but just that You might just try your luck with this film
