original title: kokuharu
genre: thriller, horror, drama, mystery
To my very big surprise this movie is directed by Tetsuya Nakashima (the director of Kamikaze girls). But don't expect any frills. This is a psychological thriller, close to horror that really messes with your mind.
A grieving school teacher decides to get revenge on the students that murdered her young daughter. It's dark, it's horrible, it's disturbing, but most of all it's brilliant. This movie shows the effects of psychology and manipulation in a way that's almost grotesque. How one little sentence can start a chain reaction so big it changes every persons life forever.
Confessions is a serie of confessions, by every involved person who each add a piece to the puzzle. At first glance you know who to feel sorry for and who to hate, but as the story develops the line gets blurry and in the end it's hard to tell who's evil and who's the victim.
The acting was so convincing for a moment I actually doubted it was a Japanese production I was watching. In fact my chin hit the table, it was that amazing. And the filming was just the way I love it with effective slow motion scenes and a magical way of lighting them.

genre: comedy, drama, romance
For the second time in a my life an Indian production have crossed my path and completely blown me away! Comedy is usually not my first choice of genre, but I decided to try something new to expand my horizon.
Two friends leaves for a quest to find their old friend Rancho from they days when they were engineer students. On this journey they encounter a long forgotten bet, a wedding they must crash and a funeral they goes out of control. As they make their way through the landscape another journey begins: their inner journey through memories where we get to know the very unique free thinker Rancho who touch their lives and changed them all.
This movie is so insightful it's brilliant! It really touched me! The life of a engineer student is far from easy but these colorful characters struggle through it with every creative idea they get, and for that I admire them so.
