Takeshi Kitano's 'Dolls crosses between dream like and highly stylized realism, the film opens in the traditional bunraku doll theater and then cross-cuts between three modern love-tragedies - a daring tragic triptych on the nature of unrequited love and abandonment - which span the four seasons and cover much of Japan. While paying homage to the art form, Kitano effectively creates the exact reverse of bunraku: a selection of human emotional disasters as a doll might see them. Edit Translation

This movie contained 3 very sad stories with one of them acted as the main story. All of them featured pure love to the extend either it makes the character unconsciously loss sanity, or consciously let go their sanity, or ...
I don't usually like movies with multiple stories, but this one was just very well blended.

The acting was great, esp Miho Kanno. She's very convincing. The scenery was beautiful, the cinematography gave off surrealism style for me (thanks to its doll elements). The use of doll elements was great. If you (like me) think traditional Japanese dolls is eery, you will find the use of it here is eery as well, and that's one of what makes this movie special.

This movie seems to contain a lot of traditional Japanese culture symbolization, I wish I understand it more. This movie is not a movie to be watched over and over again. I guess you will not want to rewatch it, but it will stay in your memory for a long time.

A note for future watcher: this is a very very slow drama, without much dialogues. Not recommended if you can't stand this type of movie.

Dolls, "a complex film.
Basically the film is segmented into stories in an interlocking way that in the end becomes unique and complex story intertwined through the film, causing emotional impact in each scene.
"Dolls" is a lesson in love and anguish. By being a complex film, it requires description of the viewer who needs to understand the Japanese way often tend to act and feel when faced with difficult or unbearable situations and without that understanding you may question whether people would actually act the way they They do in "Dolls". The answer is that they often do. Overall a great movie!
