not great but...
old recipes. not bad result. only problem - the story is far to be original but it has decent presented, the drops of Orient saves large parts, the cast is inspired and the ambiguity preserved in a correct form. at first sigh it seems be an easy spell. fascinating, ambiguous, far by great ambitions but beautiful. a film who preserves a special flavor who saves the mistakes or the old ways. Benoit Magimel is, not surprise, one of the good choices for the role of writer looking the truth. and his work seems be more than decent . far to be a great thriller, it is a seductive one. a challenge and a meeting. and Japanese culture's crumbs as veil to define the fight for understand the truth.
