Our synopsis for it goes sorta like this:“Somewhere in a fanciful alternate 1970s Budapest that never was, a shy, naive, and lonely nurse named Liza lives in a bizarre fantasy world where her only friend is the ghost of a dead 50’s Japanese Pop star named Tomy Tani. Inspired by a steady diet of Japanese romance novels, Liza dreams of one day finding her true love. On her 30th birthday she decides to break out of her shy lonely life to find it at last, but as all her potential suitors die one by one in violently odd and extreme ways, she begins to fear the worst: that perhaps she is cursed and has really become a mythical fox fairy, tragically doomed to remain alone forever!”
Hehehe… as you all know, o’ Gentle Visitors, this wee lady loves her goofy Asian Horror movies… and her weird Turkish ones… and… well… pretty much most all horror movies in general. But honestly… I also like quirky, odd little romantic films too. You know the ones. The ones where it’s not too odd to find a ghost or an alien or even a monster or two thrown in the mix just to spice things up. Those are usually the sorts of films I end up getting all teary and emotional about and usually love most of all. Go figure… I’m just goofy like that.
So… when a crazy little Hungarian movie about curses and Japanese Fox Spirits and romance came along, naturally it was a given that I’d have to track myself down a copy. A little web surfing later and eBay came to the rescue with just such a DVD… even complete with those ever so necessary English subtitles along for the ride. Yay!
So, you wanna hear Neko tell you all about it, do you? Then watcha waitin’ for? 🙂
