Trivia

During the argument between the Japanese officer and the Headmistress, the officer's haircut is very casual by Japanese military standards of that era. It looks more like a contemporary style. It's doubtful that a Japanese officer, or enlisted soldier, would have been allowed to wear his hair in such a way, as the style would more likely have been either closely cropped or very closely trimmed along the edges.

Goofs

During the skirmish in the hallway, the Japanese troops would have used bolt action rifles; most probably the Arisaka Type 99 or Type 38. But, the troops' rifles have no handles on their bolts, and one soldier even fires twice without mechanically chambering another round. See more »

User Reviews

 
I actually really enjoyed this movie

As someone who knows next to nothing about what makes a movie "good" and has no standards, I liked this movie. It certainly wasn't "horror", but it had good twists and the ending made me cry because I'm a baby who cries about everything. It was all very well acted and good enough (for me) to watch like 3 times. If you too have low movie standards, you'll probably enjoy this.
