Fukui Shozin was in Rotterdam long ago, with the instant cult classic Pinocchio_964. Almost 20 years later, it's apparent he hasn't lost any of his strange vitality. A woman pursued by her ex-boyfriend hides in a new apartment. There she is found by a mistress with telepathic gifts. A nightmare - and so is the form. Like a feverish dream. The maker points out the importance of psychedelic colours in order to portray the mood of the woman, and also of the noise-like sound. And keep an eye on the woman's breathing. A film that certainly doesn't want to comfort. And in that it is successful. Worrying.
