“A horror without well-developed horror and a romance story without satisfying romantic moments.”
“An elegant and touching exploration of arrested mourning, unresolved subjective regrets, and the impact of unfinished business on the deceived or the living subject.”
Seta’s narrative is, despite its flaws, a pleasant narrative that offers an important message.
“GMK’s main success lies in its ability to truly speak to the imagination of the spectator – something the recent Hollywood efforts have struggled to accomplish.”
“A mystery-horror experience that is, in all aspects, better than ‘Howling Village’.”
“A beautiful narrative that seems to bear no relation to our romantic life at first, but ultimately hits close to home.”
A visual experience that is not only about style and artfulness.
A nuanced but moving exploration of the destructive power of the media, the danger of leaving things unsaid, and the fact that mundane or empty speech is, by its reliance on the imaginary dimension, structured by misrecognition.
“Nakahama succeeds in delivering his message concerning the human tendency to misrecognize the traumatic pain of others in a fresh and touching manner.”
A fabulous and unique romance horror narrative that uncovers the often-forgotten truth that all speaking beings are driven by a desire to be loved/desire to love.
