Exciting, sad and unsettling
Superb psychological thriller: a young girl's entire family is wiped out by a murderer. Eight years later she befriends the killer's daughter and grows strangely attached to her. Basically a rather simple story about crime and punishment, but made with a nice touch and a great eye for detail. The camera work and editing is amazing, the acting flawless and the story extremely well-written (it will keep you guessing until the very end). The Japanese title means "Deep Red"; there are no other English titles for this one yet as far as I know. Highly recommended for everyone who wants to see a different kind of Japanese horror narrative.
