Satoshi Miki teams up with Mark Schilling to deliver one of his most unique films to date. Not as overtly funny as his other work, but every bit as weird and atmospheric. It's quite a shift in tone, but a strong cast, lovely cinematography, and an intriguing plot provide more than enough opportunities for Miki to flex his directorial muscles. It's not his easiest film and you have to be willing to go along with the plot twists, but if you're looking for something otherwordly, moody, and stylish, this is definitely a film worth seeking out. A very neat film.
