The strange lore of a small town may have some connection to local suicides. This phenomena brings together Jin, a young drifter in search of his past, and Mizue a precocious girl of sixteen. Slowly he is pulled into her world. —SPO Entertainment
Toshio Matsumoto (born March 25, 1932) is a Japanese film director and video artist. He was born in Nagoya, Aichi, Japan and graduated from Tokyo University in 1955.
His first short was Ginrin, which he made in 1955, however his most famous film is Funeral Parade of Roses (Bara no soretsu). Funeral Parade of Roses influenced Stanley Kubrick’s film A Clockwork Orange heavily. The film was a retelling of Oedipus Rex, featuring a transsexual (portrayed by Peter) trying to move up in the world of the Japanese gay bars.
Matsumoto has published many books of photography and is currently a professor and Dean of Arts at the Kyoto University of Art and Design. He was also the President of the Japan Society of Image Arts and Sciences. —Wikipedia
Basically, a somewhat conventional ghost story via the infamous Toshio Matsumoto. The only translations I can find are in Russian or Chinese. Pretty difficult to watch with babelfish subtitles and give an accurate appraisal. What I was able to grasp was pretty nice but not in any way complete.
