Comments: The first 20-30 minutes took my breath away. Looked like we had a game-changer on our hands. After that it's not a lot more than a demonstration of technique. It's nice technique to look at, occasionally immersive. I cared less and less about the characters as the film labored on and gave up hope there would be any resolution to the "drama". Give this guy a better script and better actors and he might make a game-changer.

The storytelling reminded me of:

--"Oh my god! We have to get to the hospital right now!"
--"Why? What happened?"
--"I'll tell you when we get there. We have to go NOW"

Fuck you. Tell me now.

I like Mugi Kadowaki, but Tadanobu's hairdo doesn't do much for me any more.

Summary: In Tokyo, Chiwawa is a popular girl. One day, her dead body is found in Tokyo Bay. Her body are in pieces. Chiwawa's friends gather to remember her, but they realize they do not know anything about her like her real name or her background.
