Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Two female roommates, locked in a duel to the death, is the basis for 2LDK, a vicious black comedy about competition, co-habitation, and catfights! Two struggling actresses are sharing an apartment and auditioning for the same role. Petty squabbles turn into fits of rage that involves power tools and electrocution devices! 2LDK is a twisted gem from Japan.

Review

"Sick and twisted yet disturbingly hilarious..." --Film Threat

"Dazzling movie, a wicked satire about fame and fortune masquerading as perhaps the greatest no-holds-barred, knock-down drag-out, power-tools-and-all catfight in the history of cinema." --DVD Verdict

Customer Reviews

Violence in films is good.
Jacob T. Keeton
This is a rather over-the-top film, both in terms of the attempted death methods as well as the very short time frame - the entire film takes place in one evening.
James M. Stafford III
I really liked the idea of this movie but I will admit that this film does have its dull moments where you are just waiting for something to happen.

2ldk (2-bedroom, living room, dining room, kitchen), directed by Yukihiko Tsutsumi, is one-half of the Duel films project, the other being "Versus" director Ryuhei Kitamura's "Aragami."
Clocking in at around 70 minutes, the film is about a single, life-altering night in the lives of two female roommates. Both arrive at their appartment fresh from an audition for the lead role in the big-budget film "Yakuza Wives;" the choice has been narrowed down to them two. The girls have a small dinner, some meaningless chit-chat, and go straight to bed to wait for the final decision the following morning. Or, at least, try.
You see, one is a good-natured young woman, coming from a rural setting, with a strong admiration for theatre. She works hard but is rather unlucky in love and all those other social functions. The other is a sultry vixen who's more body than talent and knows it. Carrying an elitist air and a facade of sophistication, she strives for the top by the only means she knows: manipulation. Two polar-opposites existing far too close.
With the major role on the line and the tension of a love triangle going on all the while, this night, these two people will snap. Pent-up hatred will become tangible. Minor quarrels will escalate into all-out battles. And nothing is off-limits. From beauty contest trophies to chainsaws to industrial-strength stain remover, these two will stop at nothing to get the role, the guy, and ultimately, justify their own existence to themselves.
The single-set piece that is 2ldk is, at heart, fairly simple. The plot and the characters (initially) are all really basic. The real hook of the film is the extremes to which it actually goes.
What in reality may only lead to a mild slapfest here balloons into a duel to the death.

Format: DVD
"2LDK" is a blast, pure and simple. There's no depth here, only a hint of a story, but the characters are developed just enough in the beginning to draw you into the insane action that follows.

The film is part of the "Duel Project," set as a challenge by a film producer to two directors, seeing which one of them could make the best film that featured only two characters, a single setting, and only a week to unfold. The second film in the Duel Project was Ryuhei Kitamura's "Aragami." The two films were shown back-to-back, then audience members were asked to vote by placing their ticket stubs in the box for either film. "2LDK" won by exactly one vote.

The word "2LDK" is Japanese short-hand for an apartment with two rooms (2) and a large dinning/kitchen space (LDK). This particular apartment is much cooler than your average 2LDK, and the director obviously had a lot of fun creating the space for the girls to battle in. In one corner we have Lana, a typical modern Japanese girl with bleached hair who lives most of her life making dates on her cell phone. She doesn't make much money, but has a rich collection of expensive brand-name items from male admirers. In the other corner is Nozomi, who is the typical shy country girl, with long, undyed black hair, a shy timid manner and only one man who she is setting her cap at. Putting these two polar opposites in a single living space is enough to make sparks, but to top it off they are both competing for the same role in an upcoming movie.

The director builds the tension between to two in a really clever way, letting it slowly bubble under the surface while both girls retain the veneer of politeness. When the explosion happens, it booms with a shocking fierceness.

I happened upon 2LDK completely by accident, and was instantly intrigued. This is an odd psychological film, starting innocently enough. But by the end, the two roommate-actresses are literally insane, trying to kill each other. This is a rather over-the-top film, both in terms of the attempted death methods as well as the very short time frame - the entire film takes place in one evening. By the end, the confrontation is somewhat reminiscent of the opening battle of Kill Bill I. This film is clearly NOT for minors, and is quite enjoyable for its odd zaniness.

I received this as a gift for either X-MAS or my Birthday
(does not really matter)and I must say WHAT A GIFT! You have
two girls that are roommates and are trying to star in the same
movie,this you find out in the first 2 min. and it just builds
up from there. We get old trophy photos ripped in half,pubes
in someone else's shampoo also stuff thrown at a Parrot(pooor
birdie)chainsaws-bath electrocution-punches to the face-and
knives to neck! This all happens in one night!?! Great movie!!!
If you thought the first 5 min. of Kill Bill was AWESOME?
WATCH THIS!!!
I give five sharp fingernail STARS for sure!
NOTE:For those of you who have roommates I suggest letting
them borrow what ever they want and suggesting they bring
it back anytime they want!!!!!

As a true fan and and person involved with the true study of film,this picture has not received the credit it deserves.This film is by far one of the best dark comedies i've ever seen.The movie is a very simple concept that dosen't really need to be obscured with a load of text on it's "literal meaning".

Two girls sharing a small 2 bedroom apt. together are also trying to obtain the same role in a film. They are also trying to both obtain the same man. The two girls and they're completely opposite backgrounds,attitudes,and behaiviors eventually completely clash into a barrage of severely entertaining ultra-violence which entails but is not limited to electrocution, attack with an electric powered chainsaw, and burns,contusions,and lacerations galore. The movie has a delightful sense of irony which i found to be hysterical and contained some amazing cinematography (especially for a first time director).

So in closing this movie was very enjoyable on many different levels. Whether it be the ironic take on social status and the effect it has on two seperate classes, or just the over-excessive violece in which i find to be so very enjoyable!
