Mari suffers from synesthesia, a rare disorder that mixes up the senses. She’s lived a sheltered life, but when her adoptive parents die mysteriously, Mari’s condition may hold the key to catching a dangerous serial killer.

I think that if you have already had some experience watching Japanese movies you may prefer this more than if it is your first foray into Japanese cinema. Yes, the movie is fairly long and slow at some points but the story is interesting and the characters more or less believeable.
Not all movies need to be fast paced or full of intense action sequences to be good.
I recommend this movie, more to fans of Japanese films, but as well to those looking for something not "Hollywood."

Synesthesia was a very disappointing flick. I had purchased it after reading the plot synopsis on the back, which to be honest sounded like a really great movie idea. The writers and directors must not have really understood the disease in the first place.
Synesthesia (the movie) basically is about murderer (who for some reason represents himself by some sort of elk, yes an elk) who is afflicted with the disease and is leaving messages at the crime scenes that can only be seen by other synesthesiacs. This was the main fault of the movie, the disease is unique to every person and it would not be possible for two people to have exactly the same symptoms (i.e. seeing yellow makes you smell burnt toast, looking at the number 6 makes you taste jelly beans, etc.). So the movie drags on for over two hours without anything ever really interesting happening, not even a good action or chase scene. Even when the killer leaves the "unseen" messages and the other charactor notices them nothing happens, no special effects to let you see what the charactor sees just this girl saying, "oh you see that pool of blood, well he left the letter M right there on the floor."
Synesthesia sounds very interesting and it very well could have been a great movie but I assure you it was a long waste of time.

This movie could have been a fantastic journey into the world of synesthetes. Instead, it's a badly acted and poorly directed boring waste of 2 hours. When people start dying around a young girl, an investigation is started to find the murderer(s). But the awful script goes nowhere fast as the thin plot plods along to a cliched and uninspired climax. There is nothing even vaguely interesting about this movie.
