One Strange Little Movie

Saw Odishon (1999) today. I had heard it was "scary" but i found it to be more gory and wierd than frighteniing. The movie is Japanese and is about a man who loses his wife to a disease, seven years later he is talked into trying to find another partner. A friend who is a film maker convinces him to hold fake asuditions for a made-up movie, thereby picking a potential bride from the applicants for the role. It sounds like the plot for a romantic comedy, doesn't it? Well, trust me, this is no romantic comedy.
