By Ernest Jagger on November 14, 2007
Format: DVD
Directed by Junji Sakamoto, "Face," [aka: "Kao"] is a terrific little film, starring Naomi Fujiyama in the title role. The entire film is filled to the brim with some of the most bizarre and quirky characters you're likely to view, and I found this film to be one of the more interesting MODERN films from Japan. However, this film may not appeal to many viewers. Therefore, rent it first. The films narrative centers primarily on a woman named Masako (Naomi Fujiyama). Masako is a very withdrawn middle aged woman who has never ventured far from the dry cleaner store that her mother owns. As a seamstress her life is one of boredom and isolation. Further, she is not happy with her life, and her younger sister Yukari likes to tease Masako with her own exciting and wild night life, while dismissing her elder sisters life of drudgery. To Yukari; her elder sister is a loser. Plus, Yukari enjoys teasing Masako about her virginity.

The sense of loneliness that Masako is going through is not helped by her sisters constant harassment when she visits the dry cleaner business where Masako lives in a tiny and cramped upstairs room at the family business. Near the breaking point in her life, Masako will finally snap one day when the younger sister is visiting. Following the unexpected death of the mother, Masako's latest interaction with her sister will find her a fugitive from justice. And with this, the film takes the viewer on a strange journey as Masako flees from the authorities. But where is she to go? She knows nothing about the outside world. Deciding to see her father who abandoned the family when she was a child, Masako decides to seek her father out. In her journey she will encounter some of the oddest, meanest, and nicest characters she has ever met.

It was ok but I really thought it was a little predictable.What I liked was the way that things changed all the time.
