Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa, Japan, 2006; 103 m.

“Just as the detective in Charisma was entrapped by a forest’s strange power, so the detective in Kurosawa’s new film is caught by the enigmatic power of water as he investigates a serial murder case in the Tokyo Bay area. The constant surface vibration of the sea causes him to wonder if he is in fact hunting himself. More than a depiction of an identity-crisis, the film offers a mysterious vision of human destiny in which the demarcation between life and death itself is erased.”
