[good point]
Unique dark shade with dullness
The depressed atmosphere of Matsuda Ryuhei is in his role
Because the length is short, you can watch without leaning

[Bad point]
The performance of .hitomi is very subtle
The suspect suspects are monologue by the criminal
The figure of Kageichi Kageuma does not come across imaichi

[Comprehensive evaluation]
Original unread. You should have enjoyed the movie atmosphere after reading the original. I liked the composition which advances well on a short scale of about 1 hour and 40 minutes, but the amount of digging down of the person is small correspondingly, and the explanation of the suspense part is also insufficient. As a result, it became inflated somewhat that the truth is understood by the monologue of the criminal as a result.

Also, acting by hitomi, one of the leading performers, was a delicate finish from start to finish, and I was curious all the while seeing it. I thought that it was at the last moment because it was a kind of role that did not put emotions on the table so much, but there were parts that were hard to hear because the sticks were bad and the tongue was bad. However, the facial expression of the eyes was rich, and the scary scene was good.

The unique color of dusky feeling could express well the dark worldview of the work and I think that setting to solve the case by entering into the dream of others is also interesting, so take a little more time and make it carefully I wonder if it became even more interesting.

I also saw the sequel ... ...

It was the hero who was able to enter other people's dreams and hear their hearts,
Such "suffering due to special ability" may certainly not be understood by an ordinary person.
It may be reasonable to think that I want to die. However, the screenplay was also bad, but appealing to such "suffering" was bad, and I felt disappointed. I understand that I was trying hard to become a role even for Mr. Ryuhei Matsuda who was casting,
It was irrelevant to empathy.

Female police officers also thought that Mr. Hitomi was doing his best, but the digging with her was also mediocrity. Although it was a suspense horror thing to follow a death / death case in style,
There was plenty of gruesome descriptions in Myo and nothing more than a weaning taste.

While the Kudokudo that flowed to there, the masterpiece that was finally found, indeed sympathize with that past, but in the "feeling like keeping it like this", the character feels weak and has been let off without being able to stand still Was not it.

Although the sequel person still took on the subjective nature as it is, this first work was a disappointing work of a feeling that it was unexpectedly released as it was incomplete whichever element was taken.
Evaluation is "bad" on the side of "very bad".

"I want to see Japan horror" 〓〓〓"Masanobu Ando is out!" I rented it with a kind of idea.
I think casting is good. Because hitomi is a role that acting skill is difficult to understand, it does not matter to himself / herself well and it looks good or bad.
The contents feel that the theme is a bit too straightforward. If this cast, I thought it was more interesting.
It seems that he is constantly looking at saying "I want to die, I want to die" in line with all the people who come out, and I do not feel sharp.
Although setting to enter into a dream is interesting, it is a waste that it is a dark, depressed one color. About one person in the main character, I feel good even if there are people who are bright, healthy and indomitable. (It seems like a role of a nightmare detective may be overturned more and more ...)

Even though I show splatter depictions with less sympathy for depressed people, including sub-main, I do not feel too cruelty or grief. It feels like a cruel shocking cruel scene.
Although it is a work that does not do a major atmosphere, at the very least I wanted Tokkakari to put in more easily even for the general public. Impression that directing and contents are all alone.

The themes such as casting, "conscious, unconscious suicide wish" and "the existence of death rolling to the surprise unexpectedly by the modern people" are good, but it is dark, there is no sharpness of the depression, there is no sharpness, alone.
I will evaluate it as "bad".

When defining this work with Psycho Suspense Horror, Psycho is inferred in 6 to 70% Is monologic suspense factor about 10%, and later is a (splatter) horror element?
Although the whole work is directed mainly to drawing "darkness" and "sickness" of the society and the person's heart, and although the leading character Keiichi also has some gestures and appearance that leads to L and Koichi Kindaichi,
Unlike their "believers with weaknesses" unlike their desires for suicide because of their livelihoods and abilities,
A criminal "0" that encourages the suicide attempt of the other party who talked on the mobile seems to have acquired the ability in the near death by suicide,
In addition, common sense men such as Kirishima and Wakamiya also did not work like a painted face such as a death penalty through death, but it was not a work that I was looking for and feeling better.
Evaluation is "normal".

A suspense of Kageichi Kageuma (Ryuhei Matsuda) who can get in a person's dream Thriller.
Although the strength of entertainment is appearing in the world view entering into a person's dream, the approach to physical pain which underlies as Tsukamoto director work remains unchanged. The darkness of the victim who dies by shedding a lot of blood is deep, and it depicts the deep psychology of those who desire death. And it is expressed as a metaphor of human instinct who enrages blood meat. "0" talking on the mobile phone leads to the feelings of the partner, can enter into the dream of the partner, but to make my pain and sympathy accompanied with pain with others I believe that I maintain my existence. I feel that my wounds heal also make me demonstrate self-establishment. And in the darkness of those who wanted death who called "0", there is a stifling express like being pressured. It is expressed as a feeling of restlessness that is not empty, not despair, somewhat similar to irritation and suffering to living.
In this work, there is little appearance of Keiichi, only Kaichi is a man who suffers with trauma as well as a trauma of the criminal '0' is strongly extruded. The story moves around the center of Keiko Kirishima (hitomi) who knows that she would rather die. The act of hitomi who plays Keiko has a mechanical atmosphere, tone of voice which is not known whether it is high or low, tone of the mouth is kept open, it is strengthening the fantasy of the work world with a unique aura of expression which does not move. However, in the last scene Kyuichi was invited to a ramen shop in front of the station and there was an outrageous gap, and she really caught the ending as it was not clear what kind of character she was. There was a considerably strong impact than when "Life Is Journey".

The work does not explain a lot of things. The momentary video explains only what the character was carrying the sufferings. Keiko Kirishima (hitomi) denies himself who is secretly wanting to die, and for Wakamiya Dekaku (Ando Masanobu) he does not even notice what he wants to die. That thriller of this work itself is told that there is a death close to all people, it is told that there is a danger that death is captured by a little trigger and that they have the danger of inviting themselves to a nightmare.
