Three people in Tokyo take a surreal voyage of self-discovery through memory and nightmares. "O" intends suicide while talking on a cell-phone with a stranger he meets on line who plans a simultaneous suicide. Events take a horrifying turn. Keiko Kirishima is a cool, seemingly emotionless police detective, brilliant but off-putting. She's faced with two mutilated corpses who appear to have killed themselves, but she's not sure. A cell-phone number links the deaths. She calls on Akumu Tantei, a poor and suicidal young man who has the ability to enter people's dreams. He's reluctant to help. His past haunts him. A subconscious duel of terror and blood awaits the three.

Even more bizaree is the fact that the movie claims this is a true story.Anyway, the movie follows a woman who leaves her two children alone while she continues an affair in a room rented out by a young blind man. Her daughter takes the opportunity to drown her brother in the bathtub. Rushing home on the news of this 'accident', there's an crash and the lover is decaptiated. Years later, the woman rents the room again, but the blind man starts to become suspicious of exactly what she's doing alone at night.This was the directorial debut of Lamberto Bava, and it's entertainingly demented and atmospheric. Stanko Molnar is great as the young blind man, but the other perfomances are just OK and the dubbing is terrible - especially as they try to affect New Orleans accents.

It's such a heart-wrenching and at the same time heartwarming story. It's definitely a must watch. I'm sure at the time this came out it was still a very controversial issue. I'm not sure why Ricardo Montalban was cast as a Japanese man, but he did make a sexy one! It was a great, sweet, beautiful movie!

This one wasn't bad until the ending, and I actually didn't make it through, turning it off just minutes short of the close because I just didn't care at that point. There are some valid points in the movie. Tracy is a war correspondent who returns home and is about to write the story about a "super patriot" who has recently died. To do this, he must befriend the man's wife, played by Hepburn. Yadda, yadda, a little twist here and there, and oh no! She let him die. But only because the man was abusing his power, using money and the press to start a variety of scuttles amongst the little guys. That shit actually goes on today, and Tracy, at one point, talks about how little it takes to persuade the public of someone's good or bad. The humorous points to me are the 1942 crap. The soft focus used in that era gets me every time as it's just blatantly ridiculous. Second, the writing is more about the writing than the acting. I can just imagine the writer getting off on the lines, but the actors deliver them so casually at times that it's just clearly written dialogue in which no two people would ever engage. Third, the shoulder pads. Hepburn was sexy at times, as were other women. But not when their outfits made them look like mid 1980s football players. Finally, imagine seeing this in the theater in 1942. Would you leave excited over the twists and turns? Or was that bit lame even then? Who knows. They certainly had seen the bag of twists and turns that movie watchers today have already seen a thousand times.
