YesAsia Editorial Description

Renowned for his horror titles, Japanese writer-director Kurosawa Kiyoshi has a knack for getting under the skin and into the mind with deep, unsettling films that challenge the boundaries of the genre. From his 1997 breakthrough film Cure to the most recent Sakebi, Kurosawa brings to his work a sense of brooding existentialism amidst the thrills and chills. The director's 2006 film Loft bears his trademark motifs and shooting style, painting a restrained and haunting supernatural tale. The film stars top actress Nakatani Miki (Memories of Matsuko), Toyokawa Etsushi (Hula Girls), and Nishijima Hidetoshi (Casshern).

Suffering from writer's block and some curious ailments, Reiko (Nakatani Miki) moves to a countryside villa at her editor's (Nishijima Hidetoshi) beckoning to quietly work on her next novel. Her new environment turns out to be anything but peaceful though when she sights her next door neighbor, professor Minoru Yoshioka (Toyokawa Etsushi), surreptitiously moving a thousand-year-old mummified corpse into his university lab for research. Though Reiko and Yoshioka get off to a bumpy start, the two grow closer over time, enough so that Reiko eventually agrees to hide the mummy in her home. But the mummy isn't the only unlikely guest in her walls, as a female ghost also lurks disturbingly in the background. At first seemingly a quick trick of the eye, she grows clearer and more distinct by the day...

    dvd a disappoinment Customer Review Rated Bad 3 - 3 out of 10
    kurosawa's latest and, sadly, weakest film is made even less enjoyable by this bootleg-level transfer. the low grade video quality is unforgivably cropped to 4:3 which destroys practically every carefully composed shot. until another territory picks the film up for distribution, this is the only option for those of us in need of english subs. on this evidence i'd think twice before ordering another malaysian title. the film itself has proven controversial for the director, with few reviewers finding many elements to champion. despite some genuinely unsettling scenes and kurosawa's usual masterful sense of creepiness, the film loses its way in a mess of hackneyed romance, horror clichés and plot holes leaving the viewer confused as to the director's intentions.
