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 disastersas a doll might see them.

This movie contains 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 is just very well blended.

The acting is great, esp Miho Kanno. She's very convincing. The scenery is beautiful, the cinematography gives off surrealism style for me (thanks to its doll elements). The use of doll elements is great. If you (like me) think 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 alot 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 won't 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.

It was such a beautiful , different and artistic way of expressing love & guilt ! It tells three different yet somehow similar love stories which seems visually too short and tragic but they're deeply eternal and immortal. the whole movie kept reminding me of a famous saying from a famous book : "People have forgotten this truth," the fox said. "But you mustn't forget it. You become responsible forever for what you've tamed. You're responsible for your rose !

Three people , in this movie , seemed to have forgotten or unconsciously ignored their responsibility towards the roses which are deeply in love and emotionally dependent to them ! at first they seem like the stronger side of the relationship ! they seemed to be more beloved than a lover and it's not really impossible for them to leave the other side forever ! why? cause they're stronger ! they're not tamed ! they're the ones who made the other side fall for them ! but beautifully and amazingly they're somehow drawn back to their weak roses ! like they're tied to them by a rope ! it was the most different way of showing love ! no love making ! no pretty words ! just doing ! doing and doing for love until your last breath cause you know even if YOU die the LOVE won't ! cause we might be DOLLS but that's our SOUL.
