Frequently Bought Together
Because of her last name 'Kumada' (bear + rice paddy) and her appearance, Misa's high school classmates call her "Pooh" disparagingly. She obviously has no friends and can only let down her guard around her pet parrot and the goldfish in the science room at school. But then she finds herself quickly becoming best friends with Izumi, a cute and popular classmate. Although somewhat puzzled by Izumi's interest in her, Misa is excited about having a friend for the first time ever. But Izumi's initial angelic demeanour gradually transforms into a demonic one.
Interview with the director and both leading actresses.

Soon they are doing everything together and Izumi is being increasingly controlling but it could all be just a girl thing. Then Izumi starts to let the straight laced Misa see more of her real life and she is far from being a girl made of `sugar and spice and all things nice'. Add to that the disappearance of another girl from the same school and an incompetent maths teacher who they openly call `pervert' and you have quite a potent mix for something that is going to be fairly off the beaten track for `coming out' tales. Misa says at one point `the lies I say are to protect myself' but sometimes lies are not enough.
Directed by newcomer Ryokei Watanabe this is a very entertaining and original film, it has been described as a comedy but I feel this is much more a thriller and I didn't get close to laughing - if it is comedic it is on the very dark side. One for World cinema fans that I can easily recommend.
If you are a fan of thirdwindow films , japanese thriller / horror movies i highly recommend you grab a copy !
This young director does a awesome job here, and you will want to rewatch this movie right the moment after you finish it !
(watch the credits as well, there is a little movie after that.)
DVD contains plenty of interviews that are really interessting !
I deducted a star because of several issues: it's too dark in places and you can't see what's going on. The ending of the film is also a bit at odds with the rest... it's jarring and the gore wasn't really needed.
Apart from that I quite liked it.
