In an idyllic future, a group of terrorists trigger a mass suicide that shocks the globe. Government agent Tuan Kirie, can't help but think their message sounds familiar-almost identical to the ideals held by a friend who'd supposedly killed herself years earlier. Will chasing a ghost from her past be the key to unlocking a brighter future?
Originally slated to be released on December 4, 2015 but delays with the companion film, Genocidal Organ (2017) release had to be bumped up to November 13. See more »
This movie is beautiful to watch
This movie is beautiful to watch. While the story is simple the underlying philosophy is not and the story flows well. This movie is mainly dialog and philosophy with only a few action scenes. The plot keeps you guessing and it attempt to subvert most common tropes, leaving you wondering who the good and bad guys are. I found the ending disappointing. While it had a great twist, it felt unsatisfying, however I notice the other ITOH movies are similar. I suspect the attempt is to subvert our common expectation of an ending, which it does well, but leaves us with an unsatisfying feeling. While not a classic, such as Ghost in the Shell, its well worth a watch.
