Storyline

Nami (Kumi Takiuchi) is a young woman with numerous hangups sprouting from a dysfunctional childhood. She inherits a small fortune that allows her to pursue various interests, many of which are highly abnormal. For example, Nami loves to spy on people who, not unlike herself, have gone crazy from loneliness. She calls these people "solitarians." Perhaps due to a father fixation, her favorite spying targets are old men with stiff boners. One fateful day, Nami spies on an elderly gentleman (Takashi Sasano) watching porn DVDs at home. She soon transitions from a peeping tom into a full-fledged stalker. Written by AnonymousB

Quirky Japanese comedy/horror
25 November 2016 | by Red-BarracudaSee all my reviews

A girl from a highly dysfunctional family grows up a loner with a tendency towards violent episodes. As a young woman she develops the hobby of spying on fellow loners and the lonely. One day she sees her favourite subject, an old man, with a Christian volunteer. The realisation that he may be leaving his solitude sets off a dangerous anger within her and she decides to take his fate into her own hands with deadly intentions.

This Japanese movie is one that seems to have gone somewhat under the radar. It's certainly a left-of-centre effort for sure that doesn't firmly place itself within one specific genre. It sets out for its first hour as an oddball comedy but in its final third it turns darker with the focus switching to the horror genre. It benefits from a couple of spirited performances from Kumi Takiuchi as Nami the disturbed young woman and Takashi Sasano as Shiomi the old man. The material never fully comes together in an entirely cohesive manner, however, with the whole idea of a girl spying on solitary people a concept that isn't developed as much as it might have been. The result is a pretty loose movie that doesn't entirely gel. It's still well worth a watch though if you enjoy Japanese movies from the quirkier side of the spectrum and it benefits also from being offbeat enough to be kind of unpredictable.
