I have confessions to “watch” (not to make)

4 May

Hi everyone,

It’s Friday and a bank holiday weekend!!! Yay!
Have you got any plans? Going away? or staying in?

If you opted for staying in, I have a Japanese film to recommend!

Oh I love those lazy days, staying in, grabbing crisps and chocolate, under a blanket and watching dozens of films!!

I’ve written about one of my most favourite Japanese films before. Today, it’s a second film to write about.

The film is known much better in the UK than the last film, Hana and Alice. But still not like a main stream kind of film.

The film is called “Confessions”.

A brief storyline is,

“A psychological thriller of a grieving mother turned cold-blooded avenger with a twisty master plan to pay back those who were responsible for her daughter’s death.”
(from IMDB, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1590089/)

This film was big in Japan. When I went back to Japan in 2010, everyone was talking about it. My mum had the book, I read it and got hooked so quickly!!! The book was so original and fantastic.

On the other hand, when I like an original novel, its films could never be as good as the book in my experience. That’s why I wasn’t expecting anything when I went to see the film in a cinema. How wrong I was!
I wouldn’t say the film was better than the book. But it was equally good and I can’t think of a film which achived that in my opinion before.

When the film came over to the UK, I had to bring my husband to a cinema. He loved it! He actually loves it more than I do now.

Once you start watching this film, you just can’t resist.

Does it sound like ones you might like? You can buy a copy of the film relatively easily.

Wow, I just checked  Amazon, it’s only £5.99 now. (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Confessions-DVD-Takako-Matsu/dp/B004KISO60)

I have to get it soon!

Let me hear your opinion 🙂

Have a lovely weekend everyone!! Hope the weather is not as gray as the past few weeks…
