I like the beginning of the movie, it\'s an interesting storyline. But I found the ending too confusing, and it drags on a bit..
Anna (7/27/2008 @ 6:12 pm)
I loved the first half of it and especially the beginning was excellent, but I must admit I hated the movie from the second half on. Didn\'t even finish watching it, since I almost always finish watching movies, that rarely is the case..

The beginning was awesome. Even parts in the middle made me cringe, but where the hell was the resolution to the plot. Damn artsie endings that leave things unresolved and you scratching your head and going Wha? Still good and worth a watch though.

Wendy (9/30/2008 @ 12:28 am)
The thinking person\'s horror film. Very good.
Wendy (9/30/2008 @ 12:30 am)
Esuchan: the film is about society\'s and media\'s effect on us and others\' influences on us as a whole. See reviews on Amazon.com. My review is also on there.
LFrog1386 (10/2/2008 @ 5:00 am)
it\'s about people disconnecting from themselves and their loved ones. Think about how everyone (whether it be Japan or a Western society) is so into their electronics today; kids would rather text their friends than talk to them or (god forbid!) write a letter.We\'re all so caught up in our own little worlds that we\'ve shut out those most important to us. The skins sown together are a metaphor for reconnecting (before or after death? You decide). Some argue that because of Shinto or Buddhist beliefs, these people commit suicide in the belief that their next life will be better...some think that they commit suicide because they are so brainwashed by pop culture that suicide becomes the \"cool\" thing to do. There is a lot of interpretation for this film and Imdb.com is a great site to check it out. Do a search for the title and click on reviewers comments and you will see pages of opinions on it!

I\'m sorry but I think this movie still needs to be sorry but I think this movie still needs to be finished and had a lazy ending
Chelsea (2/10/2009 @ 5:17 am)
The only thing I really don\'t understand is the fact that some people do not understand this movie.
For me, personally, the message was clear as day and the ending was perfect.
The people who don\'t understand it remind me of the people in my English class when we read A Modest Proposal by James Joyce. Everyone was freaking out about how he was \"telling people to eat children\", when it wasn\'t actually about that. It was a metaphor, and this movie is a metaphor too.
The ending, I find, wasn\'t lazy in any way. And I also didn\'t find that there were any loose ends. Everything in the movie tied together, and the people who aren\'t seeing that, I don\'t think they\'re looking at it in the right way.
Maybe it\'s because I write poetry, and know that in poetry everything has a different, deeper meaning. I could be writing about dust, but I would really be comparing dust to a different, deeper cause.
This movie is the same, what is on the surface has nothing to do with the message, and you have to delve deeper to find the real meaning.
I actually find it extremely disappointing that a lot of people don\'t understand this film.

sick movie... i gotta say people are so dumb they are stuck in their mind with crooked thhought in thiz world... cant help that handicap... but movie make sens... 9/10
lailaS (3/5/2009 @ 9:32 am)
the movie means every one of us where connected look the person that commit suicide they are all hold there hands into one onother. movie said that after death there a good life waiting for u and as for me why we wait we die we change now as long as were alive right?
liquid (3/7/2009 @ 3:22 am)
the message is pretty simple.. dont go with the crowd.. live ur life!
Amanda (3/9/2009 @ 7:31 pm)
I like the concept of a suicide club/cult but again begins to get stupid midway. Some stuff didn\'t make any sense. Like how the bag/w the skin started magically \'moving\' at the start, Who the hell was the coughing kid on the phone and what really was the significance of the two girls monitoring that site. (they didn\'t say)

I\'m sorry but I don\'t think this was good, I get the message they are trying to convey but I think they achieved this so poorly that it didn\'t make any sense. Liks Why are children back stage? and how are they able to input subliminal stuff within the music.

I wish another film comes out with the same concept of a suicide club whether it be an american remake but please make it better than this crap (won\'t be hard to achieve).

kinda rubbish film but again good original idea when it comes to a suicide club.

4/10 and that\'s just for calling it suicide club/circle

@Chelsea, lol you kidding me right? why don\'t you explain all my questions then?
@Liquid, the message isn\'t that simple it\'s more than that!
Queenie (3/10/2009 @ 9:14 am)

Ookay... :D From the moment they first showed the song \"mail me\" I thought oh please don\'t let it be another popular-song-with-subliminal-messages-film... And it wasn\'t. XD I don\'t think I liked this movie much and I really have no idea what I should think about it. Yeah, the message is simple but what confuses me is... wtf is up with most of this film?!?! XD It doesn\'t have a solution and there were some really weird moments in it XD I don\'t like to say shit about movies but... yeah.
Pumi (3/13/2009 @ 4:58 am)
Chelsea- if you are so disappointed in everyone why don\'t you explain it rather than being such a condescending ass? You write in length about how you can\'t believe people don\'t understand it and how you are a poet and the star of your English class but offer no insight to those who have the humility to admit that they don\'t quite get it. I\'ll bet you have no clue- why don\'t you write us a poem about what this movie means? Better make it rhyme since we are such plebeians in here.
Chelsea (3/16/2009 @ 12:56 am)
Pumi, maybe I want people to use there brain and figure it out themselves (that\'s not so hard to understand, and it is quite apparent that is what I meant).
You want to know what the movies means, sweetheart? Fine.
It\'s talking about the deterioration of Japanese and western society; how people are connected to computers and lose there connection to themselves, and to other people. The suicides are a metaphor to show the flaws of society, and that once something comes a fad, everyone will do it no matter how idiotic it is.
All the blood is there to shock people into looking at the problems of society.
So basically plot is this. It shows that there is a problem with society. Then it shows one solution again and again (suicide). Finally, at the end it proposes a different solution, and says to repair the relationship you have with the world and with yourself.
The main character doesn\'t kill herself because she had the last group who get their skin removed decide to actually repair their connections with themselves.
Also, Dessart, was basically sickly sweet nothing that everyone fills themselves with in society, like everyone just indulging in material items, and forgetting their connection with themselves and others. But at the end, Dessart says it is their last performance, and instead the sing that everyone should understand themselves and each other.

Now Pumi, since you obviously didn\'t expect that I would post this just shows that you\'re a bluffing idiot. Good luck with real confrontation, and don\'t act like you\'re smarter than anyone, because you\'ll get outsmarted every
KaTee (3/16/2009 @ 7:41 am)
Nice movie. To Chelsea, it is beyond me how an individual can try and look down on others because of something as simple as a horrorflick. It is not the end of the world if people dont understand the concept behind a fictional story. You must feel real small inside to boast at people because you got the concept of some movie, it is ignorant and naive to assume because you understand something everyone should as well. and who cares if you write poetry and people in your english class dont understand things, people should not be punished because they can not understand something, it is apart of the learning process. Just because something clicked in your head that brought about understanding doesnt mean the same thing will happen to every living bieng. Why waste time pondering over movies when there are much better things to do, i guess we see how u use your brain. and btw, you didnt answer amandas questions.lmmfao i cant believe you went so hard over a movie.

The movie was pretty good but the ending was just plain stupid!Like it didnt freaken resolve anything! And it also made the whole human race seem like we are all stupid..like for example: \"Im gonna go kill myself now\" \"Oh I wanna do it too\" \"How about we all do it\" \"Yeah lets do it!!\" Yeah and the blood did look kinda fake in some parts.

wow, just wrote a long post and it got deleted. Good movie for the first half, then kind of falls apart. Got the \"deeper meaning\" but they could have went about achieving it in a much better and easier to understand way. Lots of, not necessarily plot holes, but unneeded characters and scenes.
The Cuttlefish (4/22/2009 @ 2:45 am)
\"in my English class when we read A Modest Proposal by James Joyce\".... I find it extremely amusing that you take a patronizing tone and belittle those who cannot grasp the meaning behind the film, and you seem unable to accurately cite a notorious piece of literature. Jonathan Swift wrote \" A modest proposal\" as well as gulliver\'s travels.

This movie was refreshingly macabre....fantastic, though the special effects were lacking.
The Cuttlefish (4/22/2009 @ 2:50 am)
Ah and I am unable to neglect adding this..... It was not a metaphor. Jonathan Swift was one of the most well known satrists of his day. The \"eating children\" bits were in direct reference to the way the English at the time were treating the Irish. They had given them no true opprotunities to work, reduced them to poverty and thievery.... while we\'re at it, why not eat them as well?..

Fury (5/11/2009 @ 12:15 am)
Chelsea, If you are going to act all intellectual and talk down to people at least get your references straight. Jonathan Swift wrote a Modest Proposal not James Joyce. Hell, they weren\'t even from the same literary time period.

That being said, this movie sucked big time. This is a pseudo high brow movie that fails misearably on every level. Don\'t waste your time. Other than the opening scene, this movie is total cheese and the symbolism is completely lame. Give me a break!
LFrog1386 (5/13/2009 @ 6:17 am)
Wow-if there is one thing to be said about this film, it does evoke a lot of discussion, so perhaps it\'s not as useless as some people believe? I have to say that multiple viewings and reading others opinions helped me to understand this film much better. Having said that, I have no stake in whether anyone else cared about it or not but I will take a stab at answering Amanda\'s questions if anyone still cares.

Amanda: \"Why are children back stage?\" To me, a Rush lyric is the best way to answer this question:
\"All the world\'s indeed a stage and we are merely players, performers and portrayers\"

In other words, the children were acting out their role in society as innocents. They were there to remind us that there are simpler things in this world (like a child\'s delight at discovering all things new in nature)and we need to put down our laptops and video games and go back to simpler times, when children could play on the streets safely and neighbors all knew one another.

Amanda: \"how are they able to input subliminal stuff within the music.\"

I don\'t believe it was subliminal at all; I think their lyrics said everything quite clearly if you looked at it from the perspective of the band trying to tell us what is wrong with society. The only truly subliminal part was the poster of the girls holding up their fingers that lead to a phone number to the coughing boy. Which, by the way, I have never figured out why the boy coughs. Anyway, did anyone notice the band\'s spelling of the name changes throughout the film? They go from Dessert (something sweet that fills up a void but in the end is empty, like calories) to Desart (seemingly to mean being deserted, like the adults have deserted the next generation of kids) and finally, to Desert-meaning a dry, barren landscape: a metaphor for the emptiness in our hearts and minds.

Just an aside: the director lost a close friend to suicide before this film was made. The movie was his catharsis; trying to come to terms and understand what would drive his friend to such a permanent end to a temporary problem. Also, to anyone interested in reading more reviews on the film for enlightenment, please check out Imdb.com-the film site for movie buffs.

Understand This Movie! (5/30/2009 @ 8:20 am)
http://www.mandiapple.com/snowblood/suicidecircle.htm

Go to this site if you want to understand the movie. It basically explains that this movie is a dramatized example of how people are so easy to manipulate without us even knowing what we are doing to ourselves. We need to live life for ourselves! Media for example dictates what looks good, what you need to buy to be cool, how you should talk, to...killing yourself! It brings up the old saying \"If I told you to jump off a bridge...would you?\" the answer is \"is that the new thing now?\"

man, ive never seen so much blood since battle royale. lots of V8 juice. the subway scene was iconic and memorable. edgy and extreme. unique. it makes u think about suicide in a different way....like after seeing all those teens talk about suicide so casually and how they seemed so thrilled about commiting suicide, it made me think: if i was in that whole trend/wave, i would have actually jumped off a building w/ my best friend. creepppyyy. it had me thinking too much.

Very eerie, yet hypnotic film. This films shows us a vivid other side of our youth. It freaked me out to discover that the singing group was spelling out the word suicide with their hands in the picture. The kid on the phone was very disturbing. Deep, thought-provoking film. 10/10.

most of all not for all asian movie lovers, who wants pure scare than story. this movie has a lot meaning to it as everyone here who understands. at first i didnt get it too, but after reading some comments i get now the story.

additional question: theres a part where the 2 nurses who died at the early mins of the movie haunted the guard, this is sick, why put ghost nurse? wtf i was watching and i know there will be no ghost but fck that, makes me more confused
Someone (7/19/2009 @ 3:17 am)
Omg. So I torrented a bunch of Japanese scary movies and this was among the many I downloaded, good quality and good sound: but the stupidest movies in the world. It was a complete waste of almost two hours of my life.

So I had invited abunch of friends over to watch a scary movie, this was the one we all agreed to watch becuase of the good reviews and such we heard about it. Don\'t get me wrong, I understand the film and the point and such: but omg, this movie was an embarassement to me, who invited all my friends and to whatever crazy japanese dude made it.

I don\'t advise this to anybody.

More of a comedy than horror--and then turned into a music. -_-

horrible.
help me please (7/22/2009 @ 7:37 am)
this is asking abit much but does some crazy horror fan want to show off their knowledge and tell me all those films that were shown in the beginning??

would appreciate it lol
thanks
chelsea i agree (7/22/2009 @ 2:51 pm)
i cant be bothered writing a detailed message but i will say two things: chelsea you said exactly what im constantly thinking. people just need to learn to use their brains and stop expecting the film to answer everything and second, amanda your just dumb, no one elses fault, why should everyone have to explain everything to you just for you to insult them

Gaki (8/31/2009 @ 8:30 am)
Many people say the 2nd half of the movie falls apart and the ending is vague, stupid, pointless, confusing, etc etc etc. I think the ending in itself is metaphorical for many things. The 2nd half of the movie becomes confusing, desensitizing at some parts. This is a parallel to our modern day world. Our lives are chaotic, confusing, and desensitized. The ending is vague because it really isn\'t an ending. This movie comments on society and individual lives. Therefore the ending of the movie doesn\'t truly \"end\" because our lives go on, and because there is no end to society\'s problems. This movie is also a bit vague because many plot points are revealed in Noriko\'s Dinner Table.

Personally, I loved the movie. It has a classic J-Horror vibe to it, and it is very Brechtian, one of my favorite playwrights. It\'s less of a horror movie, but a comment on society and our lives.

Both of which are full of horror.
xxmExx (9/18/2009 @ 6:33 am)
I notice that almost every japanese movie is about jumping off a tall building and DIE.

&& THE POINT OF THIS MOVIE IS:
**JAPANESE school girls and school boys LOOOOOOOVES TO COMMIT SUICIDE!!!
Chelsea Is Part of the Problem in Society (9/25/2009 @ 8:35 am)
I think the poster named ChelseaIAgree is really Chelsea. She saw that people were making her feel like the ass she is and she made up a fake comment so it would seem like someone agreed with her....so after pressing \'submit\' and seeing it displayed on the screen, did it make you feel better, Chels?

I loved the movie up until the end when they showed the kids...I understand the point they were trying to make but it kinda ruined it for me a bit but up until then I really liked it. I understood the movie but I\'m not going to be a trolls ass about it and put others down who didn\'t get it right away.
LunaticPandora (10/4/2009 @ 11:19 pm)
The movie makes my head hurt. The begining is your average draw them in. The sensatilism of death. It\'s funny because in the begining the adults don\'t take it seriously. They see it as kids being over-dramtic. Then finally when it hits one of the other cops families they take it for what it is. They say throughout the movie there is no suicide club, but then some weird teens who want to be the next heaven\'s gate use the name to gain fame... I could go on and on about the messages they want to impart into the film. But this is my simple opnion. The movie is basically how once you give something a name it has power. People gave the 52 girls jumping a name and it made it so that everyone felt that \"something strange was going on\". Prime example the kids at the school. What started as a joke turned into the other kids jumping. That one girl ran and dragged the other kid down saying \"we have to\" following the herd. But the Kid aspect of the movie ruined it. It was such a obvious message it made the rest of the film seem redundant. Yes through media and tech, we disconnected ourselves from our friends and family. Through Media people have disconnected with their true sense of self. But the kid message just threw the whole thing off. It made me feel like they spoon feed me the \"solution\"

Okay enough rambling. These are my thoughts.

I actually injoyed the first half of this movie, but when i got a little less then half way into the second half i lost interest... the rest just wasn\'t worth my time. It was confusing in many ways and it gave me alot of suspense altough it was satisfying in the blood a gore. Thanks for uploading it guys. I give this move a 7/10 for the blood and gore.

I agree with everyone else on the CHELSEA topic.. Many Japanese and Chinese movies have this kinda thing at the end that always puzzles you.. U have to interpret the meaning of the movies urself.. Iv watched soo many of these with my mum n sis n both of them dnt understand, n I wld be like wait gimme a min to think bt it.. N then I would give my theories..

How can you look down on people who dont understand?? Thats really stupid.. Such movies are meant to be discussed cuz they are confusing.. Bt thats the joy of watchin Asian movies..

Hell I didnt even get Donnie Darko at first.. But its no big deal.. Its just that you understand somethings and sometimes you don\'t.. Thats the human mind.. N if you think that ur not like that then ur an alien n u should commit suicide

It\'s really interesting how a movie can drag people to beat their opinion into other people.
In one point, I agree: This piece of art is confusing. I actually really got it through the comments posted here.
I think it\'s to everyone personally how he interpretates the message of the movie cuz obviously it has one even if it\'s .. to obvious.

Of course it\'s pure, violent gore mixed with super-duper-sweet pre-teen kiddos and some real big \"wtf?!\" moments - but behind this there are some questions need to be thought about.
Have we really lost all the connection to ourselves? Me personally thinks yes. Most of the people try to be as much average as possible and only a few have the courage to stay theirselves no matter what.

Our today\'s society is a cold, heartless, surfaced clum of average. Nobody\'s really interested in other people; only in oneself. But that doesn\'t mean we ARE ourselves.

It\'s sad and disguisting how society develops. But no way to stop it.

DivX was a terrible format to upload this in. Just started the movie so I can\'t make any judgements on that, but awful awful awful upload.
reaper (12/23/2009 @ 11:13 pm)
btw TripolisUnited your comment says so many things about you , 1. it says your not much of an asian Horror fan if you have never seen suicide club and 2. Divx is best best quality you can get on web streaming players and 3 you must have an awful awful awful connection .So in conclusion you know nothing of asian Horror , you know nothing of movie streaming. so your comment has been filed under knows nothing and should stfu or gfto.
SkyGemini (1/3/2010 @ 9:16 am)
Hey, \"actually...\", \"chelsea i agree\", \"morgan=ME\" or whoever the hell you are, make a post under your normal name and stop being so immaturely condescending. It\'s not cute or funny and makes you sound stupid yourself.

It\'s a shame that some of us have to read ignorant comments made by people like you and your little pal, who can\'t spell, can\'t use proper grammar or punctuation and yet think they\'re the cat\'s meow. Get your own facts straight. If it\'s an ambiguous movie that has an obtuse ending, then there\'s no reason you should be talking down to anybody who might need some help with it.

There\'s no such thing as a stupid question...didn\'t your mother teach you that? Or how about, if you have nothing nice to say, STFU! Since you\'re so clever, I\'m sure you can figure that out all by yourself...

So.. I\'m new to japanese horror movies and I just watched Suicide Club, I was very pleased and anxious to watch Noriko\'s Dinner Table.

At first the movie seems a bit vague and therefore confusing and yes, the footage is simple and doesn\'t has those big special effects, maybe because that doesn\'t matter as much as the meaning and the message the movie carries?

About the meaning of Suicide Club, i agree with LFrog1386 and Chealsea. The film is simple but it\'s a metaphor of our society and how we disconect ourselves and how we follow blindly what media says, we should think for ourselves but hey, today we don\'t know how to think, do we? They just give us information, facts and facts and even more facts, we have no will anymore and we just do what others want us to do. This is our society today that is rulled by massmedia and foolish people.

I agree that people who are posting here that the movie was confusing and therefore it sucks are complete ignorants. Instead of just complainign you dind\'t get the movie, how about stop and actually THINK for yourself and don\'t expect others to tell you how things are?
If you can\'t get it very well try searching about the movie; reviwes and other\'s people opinions, that\'s what I did: I had an opinion but wans\'t satisfided with it, I needed more so I searched.

Moving on.. The gore in the movie didn\'t shocked me except the part of animals being stepped on. That always affects me. The blood was another turn off, it didn\'t look real at all, too orange like someone said. But that\'s not the most important.

7/10.

I got why everything is happening in the movie but don't you think that the movie should have said the reason for some of the things that was happening in it.Like when they were cutting off the skin on their backs, I didn't know till I looked at one of the comments. Isn't the movie suppose have the info in it? The movie wasn't worst movie nor was it a award winning piece.like it or not people are go to disagree with you.Everybody entitled to their opinion.

7/10

Funny how the ones that say they get the movie so very much are the ones most disconnected from the rest of the group. Talking down to each other, calling each other names only furthers their disconnection. Amusing...isn't it...
Cheshire Saku (2/8/2010 @ 9:25 am)
Okay. xD God I love reading comments on movies, this one so far had the most drama. Chelsea vs Pumi vs Katee vs Amanda. xD In MY opinion, since we all love to spout our opinions, was Chelsea was just saying how she didn't understand how people didn't understand it, because she understood it very well. From her perspective the message was as clear as day... THEN BAM, CRAZY CHICKS ATTACK! I don't see how Chelsea was looking down at people at all, I think people were just mad coz they THOUGHT she was acting smart and looking down on everyone, which she wasn't. Why can't smart people be smart without being attacked? xD anyways.. Nuff of that. I own this movie :D It took me about.. 7 times to watch it to finally completely understand it, I watched it last week again.. and finally I was like "OHHHH :D I get ittttt!" Haha. Great movie. Just because it's difficult to understand does not make it a bad movie. Sometimes movies want you to figure the message out yourselves, use your brain people, it's not too hard. c:

The way I see it, if everyone understood this movie, we wouldn’t have a problem in the world.

Basically, television influences us to believe that we have friends whether it be internet, phone or in front of you. Kind of like believing you have 200 friends on facebook, seriously, how many of those people – to be frank – would die for you? You’ll probably have some people say those words to you, usually if they have nothing to lose and are looking for an excuse. Nobody that’s really happy with themselves wants to die.

However, I don’t think that was the whole point of the movie. I think the group “Mail Me” were like a resistance to whatever it is that was making people kill themselves and basically served as a line of defense against whatever it was that was causing the suicides.

Interesting film though, and is good for a long discussion.

wow its funny how a film can trigger so much debate. i got the film completely we rely to much on technology we have completely come desensitized in society therefore losing touch with ourselves and the people around us. anyways it was ok.. i didnt like how it glamorized such a heavy topic such as suicide "im going to die now" "ooo wait what a good idea lets go kill ourselves too" but i suppose that's just a way of showing us how people can be so naive and fickle and not use their own brains and go and do something because its all the rage. life is cheap these days i think everyone has forgotten the importance of what it is to live. people commit suicide for many many reasons my uncle being one of the millions of people that have done so. its such a serious issue and its not a subject that should be treated at the next big thing. im not saying that was the directors intention in fact he was shining a light on the problem but people can be so impressionable suicide should not be treated as a solution because its not. when someone takes their own life that's not just the end it effects so many other people just like a row of dominoes or a ripple the problem gets bigger and people get hurt. everyone has lost someone and we can all relate to that empty void that cannot be replaced. it hurts and that pain never ever goes away. we all have problems but problems can be solved if we just use our brains a bit better suicide isn't a quick fix it doesn't solve anything a life gets taken away and that life gets taken away from mothers fathers brothers sisters friends.. and so on. we all know illness can push people to that extreme but it just made me angry when it was treated like it was in fashion some people cant help it but some people can. life is so valuable and its own way this film did express that in the end. anyways rant over the film was ok upset me in some parts. but it shone a light on how much of a monster society has become.

This is one of my favorite movies of all time.

I believe that a lot of people dislike this movie because it's not a plot-based movie. To me, this is a theme-based movie. There are works of art with strong, clear meanings, but this isn't one of them. This is a meditation. What you see in it depends on who you are. To me, part of the beauty of this movie is that it doesn't say suicide is good, nor does it say suicide is bad. It's a picture of intense loneliness. Noriko's Dinner Table is similarly lonely.

Generally, I read these comments because I want to see if a movie is worth watching. So if that's why you're reading, I want to help you. If it bothers you when you watch a movie and don't get it-- well, then this movie isn't for you.

If, on the other hand, you are a big fan of David Lynch, and don't mind a bit of gore, then I think you will probably enjoy this movie a lot.

Rubadubadoobag (5/19/2010 @ 2:35 am)
I agree with Nate's assessment but for me that is one reason why this movie is not high on my list of favourite horror. There are movies that, while employing abstract imagery, dream sequences and shifts in time, still contain a coherent narrative that can be worked out by the viewer (eg Ju-on, A Tale of Two Sisters, Whispering Corridors). Then there are those that don't make any sense at all. This is in the latter category.

To me, this is a flaw because abandoning a coherent story is not usually necessary to present themes or provoke thought - its just something the director does to make his life easier. He essentially sacrifices plot for the sake of presenting his themes more easily or effectively. It is not a fatal flaw to me (unlike many American viewers) but it IS a flaw. That said, the movie is both moving and intriguing and does stay with you (not least because of the haunting theme song).

One final comment that may be of use to visitors of this site: Suicide Club is not at all scary, so if that is an important factor, don't watch it.

i hear in japan this stuff is really happening a lot. they even have a popular book which is basically a suicide manual

oh i get it...i think. to me people who love themselves or in other words are "connected" with themselves wouldn't really understand the movie. i didn't understand at first but then i read the comments and things are so much clearer now.
the people who actually killed themselves didn't love themselves so yeah....
this is just my opinion

The movie is'nt working for me. I was wondering if you can fix it, if you have time...thanks.

Doesn't work for me either. Says it's been removed.

the point of the movie was to show the japan government that theres a massive suicide empidemic in japan
