YesAsia Editorial Description

Directed by Kim Sung Su (The Flu), the Korea-Japan co-production Genome Hazard is a sci-fi crime thriller based on the novel by Tsukasaki Shiro. Shot mostly in Japanese with some Korean, the film stars popular Japanese actor Nishijima Hidetoshi (Strawberry Night) as a man living a life that does not belong to him. Korean actress Kim Hyo Jin (Marriage Blue) and Japanese actress Maki Yoko (The Ravine of Goodbye) co-star in the mind-bending thriller.

Japanese artist Ishigami (Nishijima Hidetoshi) comes home one night and finds his wife dead on the living floor. Minutes later, he receives a phone call from his wife, apparently alive and well. Before he can make sense of the situation, some men show up at the door claiming to be police officers. When he turns back around, his wife's body has disappeared. Ishigami suddenly finds himself on the run from mysterious assailants as he investigates the mystery with the help of a Korean reporter (Kim Hyo Jin) he meets by chance. Gradually, he comes to realize that his identity and memories may not be his own.

The mystery Man Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
Nothing could have been better for Ishigami Taketo (Hidetoshi Nishjima) as he got home from work to celebrate his birthday with new wife Miyuki (Yoko Maki). Ishigami, a graphic illustrator who'd won a design work position after entering a competition is happy with his work, life and marriage. But the night he returns home things change. Spotting the celebratory candles of various sizes and colours on the wooden floor, Ishigami is pleasantly grateful for his wife's creative method of a birthday celebration. But across the room beneath a painting, Ishigami talking to Miyuki as she sits motionless by a wall, suddenly discovers his wife is...dead. His heart beat racing and in panic simultaneously the telephone rings, Ishigami answering and then hearing his wife's voice telling him she is now at her mother's house and will return later. But the dead body in the room is certainly Miyuki's - as far as Ishigami's mind can tell. A knock on the door - and two dark suited men enter the apartment, enquiring to Ishigami they are policemen investigating a recent murder case. His mind in fade and disorder Ishigami finds his previously normal reality, suddenly turned upside down. His wife dead, but also alive and who had just telephoned him - and now two policemen in his home? The words of the men briefly fading to an anxious ringing sound in his ears. But looking back to where Miyuki lay is now an empty space - confusing Ishigami ever more so to his now fragile sanity. Miyuki's body disappeared? Noting Ishigami's aberrant emotion, the policemen desire to know what has happened and require Ishigami to accompany them to the police station.

But as Ishigami travels in the men's car they question Ishigami 's name, as if strongly doubting his identity. When the car driver also takes a different direction away from the police station - Ishigami is assured these two men must be fakes, killers even. So fighting his way out of the men's car, in terror Ishigami escapes, runs and makes his way to...where? Nothing made sense to him now, apart from someone with a photo camera who had been following him from work lately - but he ignored such a consistence as pointless paranoia. But why had the dark suited men asked Ishigami about a Korean man, as if he knew him or even if he WAS him. How could Ishigami be a Korean man? Was Miyuki alive or dead?

Memory and identity hazard Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
With the suspicious men frantically searching and tracking his whereabouts, Ishigami spots a stationery car on the road - a woman was driving, and so in a panic he gets in her car and tells her to drive away quickly. The woman at the wheel is a also ironically South Korean - her name Ji Won Kang (Hyo Jin Kim) a reporter from Seoul who soon becomes very interested in Mr Taketo's strange life experience. Ishigami notes in frenzy the ironic serendipitous coincidence.

******
The less you know about Genome Hazard the more intriguing it is, as this Korean/Japanese thriller, partly sci-fi movie, does have a less easy to predicate outcome than most plots. And it's all pretty good gripping stuff, too. Ishigami is a man with a backwards clock ticking to zero, and with a deep savage and haunting memory loss. Like no other.

Although opening with a strangely unusual premise that immerses the viewer into a man's uncertainty about himself and of what is exactly happening to him (with the addition of some dark sinister suits), and of his maddening memory loss, it's not a movie with a convoluted or over complex story to leave you bored, puzzled and bamboozled by the finish. In fact the full strange and sinister mystery about Ishigami is slowly and fully revelled.

Based on a novel by Shiro Tsukasaki it's a solid and quite disturbing story concerning the background to it all. Regarding false memory (or an invasive identity) and virus its somewhere near the William Gibson or Phillip K D~ick novel camp, if thought of as sci-fi. But this is a thriller in the main, a dark one at that, with scary implications of what might happen if the human brain and all of its chemicals are tampered with by too much medical intervention - let alone technological. (Hit over the head with a Hieronymus Bosch rhythm stick?) Plenty of symbolic here, too.

Anyway, as mentioned the opener premise is enough to get mentally gripped here and if you haven't seen this movie yet, I do really recommend this one more than most. Not quite as freaky as a silicon chip in the head, but not far off.

Acting wise, too, its an interesting one with Hidetoshi Nishjima alongside Hyo Jin Kim.
