Love Ghost is based off the Manga by Junji Ito (Uzumaki, Tomie). The film tells the story of Midori (Risa Goto) and her mother, who have recently moved back to the town where Midori lived as a child. It is here that Midori begins to make new friends at her school, as well as rekindle past feelings for a boy she had a crush on when she was little. The boy is Ryuuhei (Ryuhei Matsuda), and as she soon discovers, not all is what it seems regarding Ryuuhei and his past. There is something very strange about Ryuuhei, and when some of Midori's classmates begin to commit suicide, Midori is determined to figure how and why all these horrible incidents occurred.
The acting in the film great considering the majority of the actors were quite young. Risa Goto (Midori) was great in her portrayal as the protagonist, but as for the part Ryuhei Matsuda (Ryuuhei) played, there could have been little more enthusiasm from him. He literally only says around three sentences throughout the whole film, hardly displays any emotion, and most of his screen time is filled with gazes and stares. For such a vital character as Ryuuhei, you would expect a little more, and the little we get from him is good but could've been better.Read more ›
Amazing throughout. If you like paranormal movies with a slight touch of romanticism, then you'll enjoy this.
The film has a very well developed storyline, which is a plus in any film. The films narrative centers on the main protagonist Fukada Midori (Risa Goto) and her mother who have just moved back to the place where Midori lived as a child. Moreover, she begins to rekindle her friendship with a boy she once had a crush on: The films main antagonist Shibayama Ryusuke (Ryuhei Matsuda). However, there is something strange and different about her childhood friend. As Midori's classmates begin to commit suicide, Midori is perplexed and tries to understand why.
The films narrative is able to keep the viewer in suspense as to what, and why these events are happening. For one thing, the other teenage girls at Midori's school are a little jealous of her beauty [she catches the looking glances of the boys]. But it is the game the girls play to amuse themselves that is a bit more ominous in tone. These girls are into fortune telling, tarot cards, and reading horoscopes. Yet not content to dabble in this fun, they decide to play a new game called Tsujiura.Read more ›
About an hour into the film, it takes a twist which I couldn't see coming even as I was gathering up the clues. The film uses English subtitles (you would think I would know Japanese by now). The film is classified as a "horror" most likely because people die and there are ghosts, but it is not horror that jumps off the screen. Mild by most standards, almost an art film.
