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.
