Mind-blowing
1 July 2010 | by dvazpSee all my reviews

I saw this film about three years ago and it's so powerful that the feelings of madness I felt after watching it are still with me.

It tells the story of three inter-linked characters: Ryo, a bully who loses it when one of his victims almost kills him; his classmate, a manipulative girl who attempts to manipulate those around her in order to cover up for her lack of self-esteem; and her tutor, a nearly-graduate who wants to be a rebel because of his fear of becoming just another salaryman. The character's inability to solve their internal contradictions leads to tragedy, although there is the feeling that some characters begin to see light at the end of the tunnel before the film finishes.

This film was written by Ryo Nakajima when he isolated himself from the world as a 19-year old. Pretty amazing.
