Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: Ten people gather together at a complex named ?Ankikan? after hearing of a short term job paying 112,000 Yen ($1,236 USD) per hour. The ten people are informed that they will be monitored 24 hours a day for 7 days straight in a psychological experiment. They are then sent to individual rooms with a different weapon located in each room. Once they are locked in they learn the rules of the psychological experiment. 1.) Each person must return to their room by 10 PM. 2.) At the end of 7 days or when there are only two surviving members left alive the experiment will end. The next day a person is found shot to death. Now, what looked like a dream job will turn into a nightmare ...
Before even watching the film; just looking from the list of well know actors (for example the protagonists Fujiwara Tatsuya and Ayase Haruka) you know this film is going to have good acting at least! The film starts fairly enigmatic: who are these people, why are they there? And then slowly (over the first 20minutes or so) everything is explained and rules are in place. THIS is where it gets REAL interesting! Deaths here and there, mysteries, twists, turns, torture, fighting, slightly romance, everything happens! Extremely intense! Especially when they go on patrolling while the GUARD is out as there is a risk of being killed and a romantic scene is thrown in and then nearly getting caught. All the characters are individual and different but are able to relate somehow. These twists and turns happen all the way up to even the last MINUTE of the film! The last 10 minutes of the film is where it really picks up tension and speed but nevertheless, all the rest is definately a "gripping the sheets" and "on the edge of your seat" feelings. A small (film study) comment on cinematography (camera shots) very nice shots and I loved the angles on the close ups and the colouring in this film was great and the use of music and sound was extremely effective (especially the patrolling part!) so yeah overall EXTREMELY enjoyable, definately watch again and again and VERY tense! =D Overall: Amazing =D
There was only one tiny character flaw that annoyed me and you may understand it when it’s at the end ^_^.
