I am thorn between 3 and 4 stars: it is quite a good movie, crazy enough, bloody, a bit of a drug-induced trip really, and with pretty convincing acting. I think the story was great, and I loved Nana Komatsu as Kanako. I was really interested in the story, but the protagonist (played by excellent Kōji Yakusho) was so unlikable I never form a real connection with him through the story and I found it hard to root for him. I still recommend the movie and I believe that was more due to my personal taste than anything else, so take it as a 3.5. I will definitely watch it again.
