Mirror Image.

Finding myself with a chance to view a film with a long(ish) run time for the first time in weeks,I started looking at the titles I have waiting to be viewed. Being in the mood for more J-Horror after seeing the amazing The Snow Woman (1968) I stumbled on a 2 hour J-Horror I had forgotten about picking up! This led to me looking into the mirror. View on the film: Gathering Takamura round the table with the other victims of Bilocations ( lookalike ghosts), writer/director Mari Asato & cinematographer Yûta Tsukinaga take the most lingering elements of J-Horror, (long takes of blurred, ghostly figures walking in the background, ghosts fading into black smoke) and gives them an eerie sting, stuck by symmetrical shots of the victims (unknowingly) being in step with their Bilocations a floor below,and the use of mirrors to catch reflections drilling the anxiety of the blurred double getting nearer. Allowing the ghosts to take on a partly solid form,Asato uses the outbreak of short,sharp,shock moments of violence from the Bilocations to their real versions to pull open the wounds of misery of the people who are haunted live. Mirroring Haruka Hôjô's novel is his adaptation, Asato threads Takamura's discovery of the Bilocation with a cerebral Sci-Fi edge, held by the ghost/Bilocation invading/ subtly seeping in to infect and gain control of the victims family, and the "support" group Takamura attends being a shadowy secret society. Piecing together Takamura's fight to peel off her Bilocation in the first hour, Asato brilliantly opens up left-field revelations in the final hour, that chillingly alter the perspective of what has gone before. After making it clear how all in the group must use mirrors to recognise the ghosts,Asato gets to the twists by sadly taking a mis-step and having everyone randomly forget this established rule at a crucial moment. Haunted by this new embodiment, Asami Mizukawa gives an outstanding performance of layering Takamura in gradual alterations which make the twists spark when Takamura faces her Bilocation.

Not horror!

Supernatural? Sure! Drama! Okey! Horror? Why? Where? How? Bilocation is a good movie, the plot is complex, twisted, keeps you there, even gets you on the edge of your seat a few times, but don't go in expecting scares, or even just plain ol' tension. I found it a tad bit hard to watch, cause, well, boredom is an important factor here, it does strike you a couple of times, but somehow I managed to watch the entire production. I am impressed with some of the ideas, originality is a hard concept these days, but I think if they wanted to make a horror, they would have. I do strongly believe it was chosen a different path for it, it came out as they wanted it, so for that, I will grade this with a 6. It is something I can recommend, but not for a fun night, not for some spooks, but to get an eye on a different thing, another concept, a supernatural film most likely different from what you are used to. In the end, I can't say I'm pleased with it, because it looks truly beautiful, but completely odorless and tasteless. Do as you please. Cheers!

A good fantasy thriller

I watched this movie after reading the synopsis only. So I didn't expect much than what I read in the movie plot. But this movie proved to be one of the most elegant movies made in the fantasy genre. It's like a beautiful tragic poem. This is one of the best twist-end movies. Kudos to the director for clever story telling. But the end really affected me and I felt sorry for the heroine. A real gem.
