The deepest love story
27 May 2018 | by miyukitakSee all my reviews

Although this film is about a psychopath lady Misako with grotesque expression and suspense story, this is such a heartwarming love story.

Misako recognizes her strong desire for death, and she understands that it is abnormal. She seems like a beautiful murderer who had never opened her mind since she was a kid.

A guy with a broken heart changed Misako. However, happy ending never comes to her.

You will ask yourself "Can I make the same decision as him?" All the actors are so talented especially Yuriko Yoshitaka. The director decided to shoot the past part and the present part apart, and this method gave the movie more reality.
