The media gone mad
Ryoichi Kimizuka’s riveting exploration of the Japanese media’s feeding frenzy focuses on a15-year-old girl forced into police protection to escape from the journalistic hordes after her brother is arrested for murder. It plays out like a propulsive edge-of-your-seat thriller that’s sure to leave you breathless. This film also earned Kimizuka the ‘Best Screenplay’ award at the Montreal World Film Festival 2008.
