5.0 out of 5 stars Multi-layered story, 3 Oct 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Funuke, Show Some Love, You Losers [DVD] (DVD)
This film revolves around a failed actress who goes back home to the countryside after not making it in Tokyo. She moves back into the family home which consists of her sister, an aspiring Manga comics writer, who is around 18 and asthmatic and the step-father and his wife. The actress blames her sister for her failure as an actress and spends most for the film taking it out on her,. We find out in the film her sister wrote a Manga comic about her sister and it was published, hense the reason for her sisters hate for her. Unfortunately the sister is rather apologetic as her sister abuses her verbally and physically. You want the Manga writer to stand up for herself as she is abused, but we see her beeing rather meek and apologetic as though it is all HER fault when it isn't in the slightest. The husband is also very cold emotionally to his wife and treats her badly and is somewhat abusive to her and again she needs to stand up for herself but is again very apologetic.

Without giving too much away the sister starts to correspond with a film "director" and he wants her to write to him regularly to talk about her family and what she thinks of them ect

I wont give away the ending but the actress gets a massive come-uppance and it is an eye opener ending that you WILL NOT SEE COMING. Japanese film tend to be multi-layered stories ultimately deeply satisfying and can be emotional and will stay in the memory for a long time. Highly recommended
