This horror film is about a father who lost his wife seven years ago and after he is told by his son that he looks old, gets help from his close friend to find a woman to marry him.
Those two hold auditions to find the perfect match, and finally find a good looking woman with an unordinary charm and attitude.
The story, besides being horror, shows two different aspects of life and talks about its worth.
This movie is really interesting. It's kinda horror-ish, but more weird and confusing than anything. But in a good way, like a David Lynch movie. In fact, it's actually a lot like his movies.
I don't quite get it still, but I think it is what makes this movie good, the confusion about what is true and what is not, or what all this means.
I really like the actress that plays the part of Asami. I might even try to get the leather apron and gloves for Halloween and go disguised as her while saying "kiri, kiri, kiri". You have to understand though, the acting is really... down key? It's not like dramas or light hearted movies at all. I feel like the girl acts like a really "japanese" shy girl. It goes with the feel of the movie in the way that the main character is searching for such a girl. The way he falls for her though... I would have created a better build up since it's kinda too quick.
That said, I feel like the Asami character is really well described. Her purpose is really clear, even though we are not completely sure why exactly she's like that. But I doesn't really matter since the point is mainly to be able to say she has a motive to do what she's doing.
That said, you have to love Lynch's movie to enjoy this I think. If not, you'll find this a bit boring or too weird. And you also have to immerse yourself in the acting. It's not soo much acting as being true to the character ways, in my mind.
