The movie has so many strong points that as to whether this will make my top whatever list is a no-brainer. This is MY type of movie: a light romantic start that will blind and mislead you on the graphic stomach-crushing ending and a plot twist that will break your head trying to figure out if things fell into place. I like how I was tricked because I slammed the scene (at the hotel room) where the guy was looking for places to go when they should have banged each other the moment they closed that door but I love how it was made as a central/pivotal point. You know what I’m talking about. Its at this scene where we are confronted with whether we are tricked into another plot twist, or whether it is what it seems. A widower finds for a new love through a screening process which was actually for a movie but he took the opportunity to find his new love there. His attention was caught by a mysterious applicant who at first glance seems so fragile but has her own story to tell. Widower befriends her and started to get to know her more. He finds out about her dark past and how this molded her present persona. He is presented into an alternative world where his woman isn’t all what she seems to be. Or is she? I would’ve wanted to put an end on the question if it was all really just a dream. I’ve read a couple of reviews stating it was a dream. So if it was indeed a dream, everything that happened after he awoke (at the bed, with his body parts complete) was all again just part of the dream? Those parts where the son arrived at home and rescue was on the way? Either way, I think all of us can agree that although it was a bit hanging on that part, we need not figure out the exact answer. As we usually do, let’s leave it at that. (So was it really a dream??? Kidding). The ending is too graphic that I may be a fan of these violent graphic movies but this one is on another level. The way the woman joyfully did her torture and body dismemberment (is there a word?), with her haunting "Kirikirikiri" chant, the sound effects that make it seem so real you feel like you’re feeling the pain—oh help me and my stomach! Overall I think this is a top-notch, timeless film.
